E 115 dead battery or not?

I have an E115 which for one reason or another has been left in my garage for probably a year. I used it for about a month...making it 13 months old. I have just found it and want to start it up but get nothing. In the cradle the charge light goes on I can leave it there for ages and as soon as I lift it the light goes out. Is this a dead battery? I know it sounds obvious but I dont want to go to the expense of buying a new one in case it is something more terminal. Thanks

Remove the battery and clean the poles and the contacts in your machine, use a pencil eraser. After year in such an environment your contacts may have oxydised (or something like that) and prevent recharging. Sorry for my poor english..

I had just went through this .. it has to be the main battery.. if these (main batteries) go dead for some time I think (not completely sure) they cause a dead short in the units and the ac power will not work... mine was a casio e-125 that would not power up any way that I tried.. I had luckly found one on e-bay and the seller said not dead on arrival and he was right..I had also replaced the back-up battery as well.. hope this helps..

Well, you might try opening the case, looking to see if any insects have gotten in during the "garage" year. Any debris may be shorting out something. But, I'm not optimistic... BTW, I think the light is supposed to go out when out of the cradle. But it should turn green when in the cradle and the battery is charged. You may have driven the battery totally flat. Maybe someone knows how to breathe life back into that battery.

Try the following. Remove both batteries. Install the main battery. DO NOT attempt to turn on the device. Connect the charger/AC adapter the green light should come on. Leave it on the charger overnight. In the morning the green light should be off. If it is still on the device and/ or battery are very definitely defective. Install the backup battery. Set the switch to center position. Fire up the device. It should initialise & should be ready to go. To achieve maximum capacity may take a few cycles of charge & discharge.

My gs 300 battery needs a jumpstart everyday


There can only be three reasons

An electric source is left on and is draining it.

You have a parasitic draw.

The battery has failed, or one or more cells have failed. They last 5 to 6 years.

Get the battery checked with a load tester at any garage. If the battery is OK, you need an auto-electrician.

Battery is dead, can't jump start it even though i just drove it. does it need a new battery?


If the battery just died for no reason, reason being the door was left open too long or a headlight,dashlights were left on or any application on your car was left on then your battery probably just needs to be recharged. If that not the case then it most likey your alternator if that dead then your battery was not being rechared/maintain by the alternator,even if you drove it that drive kill was power your battery had so in that case you will have to replace your alternator

I tried to start my 1996 328is. It will not turn over. Their is no noise at all, no lights, seats, doorlocks, etc...I haven't driven the car in 3 weeks but it has been in a coverered garage. I didn't...


Your battery was probably killed by heat, sitting and not being used and getting hot inside a garage will kill a battery, heat is a battery's worst enemy. No your altenator is probably not bad, test it with a meter by placing the red lead on the positive and black on negative, measure voltage before starting the engine, then again after starting the engine, before should be 11.5v-12.5v, after should be 13.5v-14.5v if these reading are the same on your car all is ok. Hope this helps, let me know.

1995 dodge stratus keeps going dead in driveway. I jump it off and let it run 15 mins to charge battery up. Turn off and crank right up, but the next day it is dead again.


With engine running used a voltmeter and check voltage at battery, you will be checking alternator out put voltage, should have a reading of no less then 13.0 volts, if less bad alternator, the reason it keeps going dead is that the car is using the battery to run it .till the battery has no more power, then you jump it and the battery is charge up again and will run again till it goes dead again.

Own a 2005 BMW M3, car battery draining -battery less than year.


From what you're saying here, I believe that you simply have a bad battery. Most batteries only last 5 years, much less if they're left to sit in storage periodically. You really should charge the battery overnight and do a load test on it the next day. The person(s) you spoke to at BMW were probably sales staff and not actual technicians. Costco has very good batteries at reasonable prices.

E115 main memory problem


The memory problem can be fixed easily. It is not only you. It is a common problem with some pocket pc. Instructions according to Casio Customer Service: You will have to back up all of the data. Then remove the backup battery and main battery for ten minutes. Restore all of your files and you should be back in business. Also, to prevent this from happening again and to keep program memory high, perform a soft reset at least once daily. This will almost certainly fix your problem.

E115 Screen Replacement?


I believe if you are hardy with this sort of thing you can order a new touch pad from Global Products or www.pacparts.com. The e-115 , e125 and others all the same. Mine is coming from Global now item # 10003145 @ $28.00 I believe. I will know more when mine arrives. The case is not to hard to crack open just be careful. Once the case is open and motherboard freed turn the mb. over from case. The touch pad removes very easily one ribbon connector and one tape. Tear down pictures @ www.hi-pda.com/usercomment/001215/1.jpg. Be careful to have static band or discharge don't touch except edges and plastic of compact flash. It will take a little work but it is the cheap way. Dick

E115 Won't Hold Battery Charge


You might hook your charger up to your battery and check the voltage that you are getting when it is fully charged. It may be that the charger is bad. Your voltage when fully charged with the battery on it should be a little over the rated voltage of the battery. Just a thought. Be sure you are using the correct poweradapter/charger also.

Replaced my Casio E115 screen - now touchscreen doesn't work!


There are 2 things you have to check for. The touch screen was changed in the middle of production run. The flexible connector & the corresponding socket on the main board were inverted. In other words the exposed track side was moved from upper to lower side. The older type of touch scrteen is no longer available. Casio made the socket available to their service centre to change in on the main board to suit the newer type of touch screen. If this is the case you will have to get the newer type touch screen to suit the E-115. The second aspect is that there are 4 self adhesive spacer tapes (approximately 3 mm x 80 mm x 0.5mm thick on the long side & 3 mm x 60 mm x .5 mm on ythe short side) on the periphery of the LCD. This is to keep the touch screen from touching the LCD. This is to prevent Newton's rings as also to prevent malfunction of the touch screen. These are an absolute must. Other than that the touch screens are absolutely the same. Hope this helps.
