I am new at this but I could use some help in diagnosing if my old casio has given up the ghost. It was on the cradle and I tried to make an entry when it appeared to be "locked up". I tried to reset it and it gave a low battery prompt. Usually I could go past this screen to my desktop. Now it goes to the Welcome to Windows CE screen where you initially set-up the device. It will not proceed past this screen. I assume that I have lost all information that was entered and now cannot even use the device. ? Can you help?

Re: casio E-100: Dead or alive?
If you had synched the device you have all your data on the desktop pc so I wouldn't worry too much except for some software which may require you to enter the reg info again.
You could try the following.
Remove both the batteries. Install the main battery. Install the backup battery preferably a NEW one.
Let the device charge to the full - until the green charging light goes out.
Switch on the device. It should now behave properly.
It would help if you generally avoid using the device when you get low battery warning. Especially the backup battery.

Kind of hard to diagnose the problem with so little information. But, in most cases the battery(s) need to be replaced. Be sure that you face them in the proper position(s) as indicated inside the battery compartment. If the remote is over 5 years old, it probably has given up the ghost.These days, new ones are not expensive. Less than $10.00 at discount stores.
I gave my wife also one of the Casio Exilim cameras. She doesn't take a lot of pictures. But so far the battery has not failed us. There might be a chance that your battery has died on you. I suggest you go to Casio and ask them to test the battery. I'm guessing it is the battery that has conked out. If it isn't then you need to have Casio check on your camera.
i have not used my camera since June, when i went to charge the battery the other night the Red light just kept flashing even after leaving it for 8 hours, i can get pictures from it which are stored in it but the shutter will not open whilist in and out of the cradle.
One problem I know of is the battery for your camera should be model NP-20 not model NP-40. The NP-20 has 650mAh. I would exchange your new battery for the correct model battery, and see if this works. If this doesn't work I would try cleaning the battery terminals in the camera, and if that doesn't work go ahead and try a new charger.
Hey, I just had this problem with a Sanyo battery pack (and i thought it was the non-sanyo Li battery) and noticed it wasn't getting warm even 2 hours after "charging" and the red light was flashing - so i turned it off, disconnected the cable from the charger and realised it could go the other way, so tried that AND IT WORKED! i don't know what that cable is called, the 2-prong black cable, but give that a go (turn off in between!).
You can salvage your old battery. Sounds crazy but you can take a 9 volt battery and jumper it to the old battery . It will put enough charge in the np-20 to make it start charging in the cradle. Takes about 20 seconds.. make sure you go + to + .. the size of the 9 volt fits perfectly.
There have been issues with the cradle PCB on the EM-500. Casio has redesigned the same added an IC & a few additional componentes.
I had similar problems & simply could not connect through the USB port. Worked flawlessly with the accessory serial cable (direct connection - no cradle ). This also was on an XP system.
See if you can wangle out a free replacement/fix for yout cradle from Casio.
