I fully charged the PDA the night before, and when I tried to turn it on, a few hours after disconnecting from current, nothing happened. It would not even turn on for a second telling me it had low battery.
When I returned home I connected it to the power and it turned on, but with a hard reset.
I let it connected to power for around 3 hours and then began installing software, disconnecting it from the power and connecting to the PC. Immediately it showed the low battery warning, and when I went to see battery status, it was at 18%.
Since then I tried again charging, all night this time, but again when I tried to turn it on battery was at 18%.
Is there any other test I can try?

Re: Battery not charging
In my opinion everything you done was right. I believe that the warranty is still valid and you should try to contact service partner. Maybe is the power charging electronic defective. Sorry but I don’t see any other possibility that you can do alone.

pls first confirm the charger is working or not and then kindly leave the pda for like 2 hours on charge it will start charging , when u store these devices for longer period kindly fully charge the battery and then store , when battery drains during non use it drops to a certain level from where it might come back or might not , pls leave the battery on charge for like 2 or 3 hours first and then u will see charging signs or light
You just have to charge it fully but not for long as soon as it turns full battery then swithch ur phone off then take the battery out for a sec then put it back on then turn ur phone on then it will work for a longg timeee kk..
If you purchase a new battery, they usually come with directions and special tools to change the battery. I had the same issue with 2 of mine when I got them at a used electronics store. IF it is the battery that is not working, then replacing it is easy, and you can get a replacement at your local Battery-Plus store.
In my case, one was fixed by a new battery, the other was not, and I actually had to press pretty hard in the cradle to get the second one to work. It never worked out of the cradle, so I gave that one to a neighbor kid to tear apart and see if he could get it working. (I got them for $15, so no big loss.)
leave the backup battery in the PDA and bring it back to life with this how to ;)
if that doesn't help you may need to give the battery a little kick-charge for the PDA to recognize it again. the PDA "thinks" there's not battery if the battery voltage is below 2Volt. to "kick-charge" the battery just get a AC adaptor with at least 5V and 1A (a.k.a. 1000mA) with 2 wires and connect them to the battery pins (with "+" and "-" correct!)
if you have your PDA lying in front of you with the display down and the battery cover opened, the pins of the battery are as following:
left: plus middle: charging/temperature (not important for hand-charging) right: minus
connect the wires of the AC adaptor correctly and let it "kick-charge" for about 5minutes (but NEVER let it charge any longer if the battery is getting hot!!!!)
after that, the PDA should recognize the battery again because the voltage is more than 3Volt again.
but don't (!) try to power it up after kick-charging! the batterys voltage is higher than 3Volt again, but it takes just a few seconds to empty it again if u try that. it's only for the PDA to "see" the battery again ;)
I had the same problem with an E125 which I brought off eBay that hadn't been used for several months.
I took out the backup battery and put the main battery in it's holder with a bare wire held onto the negative & positive terminals. When I turned on the charger, I held the other end of the bare wires onto a partly charged Nokia Battery (Also 3.7V internal). The current from this battery was enough to let the Casio start charging. After two minutes I disconnected the Nokia battery and gently tugged the bared wires free. The Casio kept on charging happily. After six hours I disconnected the AC charger, installed a new backup battery CR2032, and everything was go.
Please see the following link to locate the reset hole for your PDA.
Try a soft reset and let us know if that helped with anything.
