The screen on the CDR778 looks like it is all in japanese now. I cant read it, do I need to get a translation booklet, or is there an easier way to fix this? All the other functions seem to work. Thank you.

Some units are made for the Japanese home market and only come in Japanese. One easy way is to use a smartphone with the Google Translate app on it and use the camera feature to translate what you see. Look for Settings - Language.

I have not been able to find an English language translation of the user manual for the Osaka Gas heater model 43-450 online. I only find the Japanese language manual (24 pages): http://www.osakagas-info.net/pdf/43540.pdf
Or, you can look for a translation service (which you will have to pay) to translate the Japanese manual into English. I have no idea where you reside, so I cannot search for any such service in the area of the world where you reside.

If you cant read it and have an android smart phone, download Google translate. You can use the camera on the screen and it will translate on your phone. You will have to set up the app to translate from Japanese to English.
Unfortunately, the x2gen company has declared bankruptcy and gone out of business due to legal trouble (x2gen.com). Manuals are no longer available online.
Unless you can find someone who can read the menus for you, or has an old manual laying around, I can pose a couple alternative, albeit tedious, solutions.
Using http://babelfish.altavista.com/ you can translate your menu... that is, you can type "BRIGHTNESS" in English, and request the Japanese translation. Locate the text in the menu that matches the translation. Tedious, yes, but it would work. To use this for non-arabic based character sets, you will need to install a Japanese font on your system, otherwise the text will return as "?????" question marks (in place of each Japanese character).
Another alternative would be to take a photograph of your menu screen and submit it to a forum to have an online user do the translation for you...
Just some ideas - hopefully you can make some progress...
