I had a Casiopeia E-125 for two years. We went on vacation to New Hampshire and I took it with me. I tried to turn it on, but it wouldn't, so I figured it was just a dead battery. Well, I came back and put it in the cradle. I waited, and took it out again. I went to turn it on and it stayed on for about two seconds and the backlight started flickering and it just died. Now you can only access it while holding a flashlight to the screen. I asked Casio at their web site, and they told me that it was a problem with the motherboard and they would not replace it.

Re: E-125 Owners BEWARE!
Unless a Casio technician has looked at it don't take Casio's word for it.
There is an inverter PCB which converts the DC to high frequency AC for the fluorescent back light. lamp. This is available & can be repaired / replaced.
There is also an issue with the E-125 backlighting which simply requires resoldering of a connector on the main pcb.
Then there is the fluorescent lamp itself which can go bad & may be replaced.
So DO take your device to a well equipped competent technician to look for the precise problem.

I am guessing that the Hampshire you refer to is in the USA rather than the UK, otherwise I would recommend Dave Marsden at Z Power.
I really think you should join a forum/club for Z1 owners, as they will be able to advise you who is the best mechanic on your side of the pond, and this will no doubt save you money in the long run.
You have a valuable and desirable bike, good luck getting it back on the road!
you need to replace the clutch plates as they are probably contaminated, and clean the steel pressur plats with some fine wet and dry until clean with no rust, make sure you use the correct grade of gear oil and adjust the clucht pushrod assembly as shown in the owners manual.
I heard from another posting on here and the answer, that someone took fine sandpaper and cleaned off the terminal ends of both battery and camera and blew out the dust particles from that before replacing the battery, then then camera worked. I have yet to try it with my Kodak camera that is 2 years old and suddenly died too! The batteries are fine and work in other cameras.
This is what I suggest:
Get yourself a new backup battery.
First backup your Casio.
Then install the main battery.
Plug the Casio in and recharge overnight.
Once recharged, install the new backup battery.
Make sure you do not touch the battery with your hands.
Use a tissue.
This should solve your problem if the Casio is not physically
