Question about Casio Cassiopeia E-125 Pocket PC

E-125 No Power

I've had a Casio E-125 for 18 months and it turned itself off and would not turn back on. I purchased new batteries and charged them as instructed prior to attempting to restart my E-125. It failed to start. As others have written regarding the same problem I too was able to get it to power on for a limited amount of time by fiddling with the batterings and doing a full re-start. It doesn't maintain power prior to going dead for very long. I'm not sure if I should take this thing apart. I believe it has turned to junk as probably planned. If anyone can offer some help it will be appreciated. Thanks

Hello, The E125 and most of the CASIO HPC's have problems similar to this. Unfortunately you will loose any data you have input since your last backup with the solution I am about to give. First, leave the unit plugged in and charging for at least an hour. Next, remove all batteries, main and backup. let the unit sit for a while to discharge any capacitance in the circuit. If possible short the + and - contacts on the unit (NOT the battery). This will discharge capacitance in the circuit. Then, press the reset button. Replace the main battery and press reset again. The unit should power up to factory defaults. Replace the backup battery. You will need to sync with your PC to restore data. If this doesn't work, you may have a completely discharged NiCd or NiMH battery and it will need replacement.

I may have the same problem (maybe). Mine does that if I use the charger. So what I do is swap batteries. It 1st happened in Jan. What got it going again was toggling the battary switch to the remove main battery position and leave it there for a little while. I have a seperate BAttery with its own charger and when I dont Plug in the Power Supply to the Em-500 I never have the problem. I was doing programing and had plugged it in and sure enough it started happening again. You might try leaving that switch toggled or remove the main battery over night especially if you have the backup in place. If you have the same problem thats what gets mine going.

Are you checking your adapter. i had the same problem with my casseopeia e115. i searched and searched for the battery which even casio doesn't offer anymore. i bought a battery pack which works great w 4 AA batteries but it's bulky and you lose data when you turn off the batteries. i finally went on to discover that my charger/adapter that plugs into the e115 and the serial cradle was scorched by a lightening strike and it was not charging and eventually the batteries DIED!!! I took the adapter to an electronics repair store and for $15.00 they rewired the adapter and it works!!!! it charged the batteries and worked fine.(altho i have to visit them again because i think one of the new wires is bent and i have to position it perfectly to keep charging.) BTW: any one looking for a new casio battery jk210lt...i have a couple to sell! ;-) hope this helps

Why wont my nookhd wont charge


If it\'s only two months old it may have a defective charging cable or adapter. If it\'s a new purchase and you can return it. To check to see if it might be the adapter and not the charging cable you have a few cheap ways to test this out.



General charging recommendations.



If you get power leave it on charge at least 3+ hours. This is the minimum time required if the battery is totally drained. If the Nook turns itself on during this process manually turn it off. The battery charges faster and more deeply if it\'s truely powered down. Charging more than 3 hours won\'t hurt it. In fact some manufacturers claim leaving thier products on charge for an additional hour after the charging light glows green is good as it leaves a slightly deeper charge on the battery. Also I believe leaving it alone for that hour allows it to cool the battery. Most manufacturers also recommend tottaly draining the battery at least once a month and then fully recharging it 1+ hours after charging light is green. They claim this helps the battery maintain a healthy charge and extends the battery life. Simply disconnect any charging cables, turn the unit on and just let it set. Don\'t touch it peroid just leave it alone until it turns off because the battery is totally drained. Then just plug it in and leave it. Only if the unit automatically turns itself on do you manually turn it back off.



Well that\'s about in in keeping the battery life and charge at its maximum.



If your AC power adapter has gone south there are only three ways to get around this. 1. Purchase a generic AC to USB adapter. 2. Purchase a genetic DC to USB adapter. Most of these can be cheaply purchased at most drug stores ect.. these days. You can even get DC to USB ones at dollar stores such as Dollar Tree. Good way to maintain your battery if your AC one goes south or you lose house current.



One other way to charge your battery is to plug the USB cable into your computer. Some manufacturers don\'t recommend this as this more often than not doesn\'t fully tank up your battery.



You can also get replacement charging cables at the same place you got the adapters. Places such as Walgreens, or CVS often have these at around five dollars a pop.

Very low battery life


I have the same camera. It sounds to me that there is a fault with the camera itself and not the battery. You might be better sending Canon an email and asking them. My battery lasts forever so I would think if you already purchased another battery you've eliminated that problem. It might be the contacts inside the camera that are not accepting the full charge. Does the camera battery on screen show that it's full after you've charged it? Maybe trying charging it overnight and then trying it out the next day.

MTG 900 SAYING "CHARGE" AND I'VE BEEN PUTTING


I am assuming you are reading the battery charge correctly. If so you need a new rechargable battery. Special battery so it is a little expensive. Make sure the person knows it is a "rechargable battery" you want. A regular battery will not work properly or recharge.

Hi!
The battery turned itself off. You can fix it if you give it a bigger impulse, something like 4-5V and about >700mA for a couple of seconds. If you can't do it, you have to buy a new battery.

Red Flashing Charger Light


I have HAD the exact same problem. Turns out a whole bunch of people too. But there is a solution. You can get a free new battery by calling the casio technical support. 1-800-435-7732. They are very friendly. They'll ask you a few questions, like where you live, you number and your camera serial number[ under your camera ] and all you have to do is explain to them your problem. I got my new battery and now my camera works as good as new.

Battery Charge error


Hey Lak_69,
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.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Cassiopeia E-125


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.
