and fire.
• Never allow the positive (+) and negative (–) terminals of the battery pack to
become connected (shorted) by metal. Doing so creates the danger of battery
pack heat emission, explosion, and fire.
• Never transport or store the battery pack together with a necklace, hair pins
or other metal objects. Doing so can short battery pack terminals, creating
the danger of battery pack heat emission, explosion, and fire. Be sure to
place the battery pack in its case whenever transporting or storing it.
• Never throw the battery pack or otherwise subject it to strong impact. Doing
so creates the danger of battery pack heat emission, explosion, and fire.
• Never pierce the battery pack with nails, hit it with a hammer, or step on it.
Doing so can create the danger of battery pack heat emission, explosion, and
fire.
• Never try to take apart the battery pack or modify it in any way. Doing so
creates the danger of battery pack heat emission, explosion, and fire.
• Use only the specified battery charger to charge the battery pack. Use of
other type of battery charger creates the danger of battery pack heat
emission, explosion, and fire.
E-4
Warning
• Never place the battery pack in a microwave oven or any other highvoltage device. Doing so creates the danger of battery pack heat emission,
explosion, and fire.
• Should the battery pack emit a strange odor or heat, change color or shape, or
exhibit any other abnormal behavior, immediately stop using it. Continued
use creates the danger of battery pack heat emission, explosion, and fire.
• If the battery pack does not achieve full charge after the normal charging
time has passed, stop charging it. Continued charging creates the danger of
battery pack heat emission, explosion, and fire.
• Should the battery pack start to leak or emit a strange odor, immediately
move it away from any nearby flame. Leaking battery fluid is combustible,
and exposure to flame creates the danger of explosion and fire.
• Should fluid from the battery pack accidentally get into your eyes, do not
rub them. Immediately rinse your eyes with clean tap water and then
consult a physician immediately.
Caution
• Never use or leave the battery pack in an area exposed to direct sunlight, in
a car parked in direct sunlight, or any other very hot area. Doing so creates
the danger of heat emission and fire, as well as deterioration of battery pack
performance and shortening of its service life.
• Do not use the battery pack in areas where static electricity is being
generated. Doing so creates the danger of battery pack heat emission,
explosion, and fire.
• Danger of explosion if the battery pack is incorrectly replaced.
Replace only with same or equivalent type recommended by CASIO.
Dispose of used batteries according to the local regulation.
• Should fluid from the battery pack accidentally get onto clothing or your
skin, immediately rinse it off with clean tap water. Prolonged contact with
battery pack fluid can cause skin irritation.

strip. Doing so creates the danger of fire and electric shock.
• Avoid conditions that can cause damage or breaks in the power cord. Do not
place heavy objects on the power cord and keep it away from sources of
heat. Any of these conditions can damage the power cord, creating the
danger of fire and electric shock.
• Never modify, sharply bend, twist, or pull on the power cord. Doing so
creates the danger of fire and electric shock.
• When using the battery chargers and the cradles, be sure to use the
respective AC adaptors (sold separately). Use of other AC adaptor model
creates the danger of fire and electric shock.
• Should the power cord become severely damaged (to the point that wires are
exposed or broken), contact an authorized CASIO service provider about
repair or replacement. Use of a damaged electrical cord creates the danger of
fire and electric shock.
Caution
• Keep the power cord away from stoves and other sources of extreme heat.

Replacing the Battery
Your Handheld Terminal uses two types of battery: a battery pack and a memory
backup battery.
The battery pack is used to power normal operations and to store data, while the
memory backup battery provides the power required to maintain memory contents
when the battery pack power is unable to supply power for some reason.
The operating power is supplied by a battery pack. You can choose between a battery
pack (DT-5123BAT) and a large-capacity battery pack (DT-5124LBAT).
The backup battery is installed inside of the Handheld Terminal.
This guide uses the following terms to refer to the batteries.
Battery Pack:
Rechargeable battery pack (DT-5123BAT or DT-5124LBAT) for
normal operations and data storage
Backup Battery: Built-in battery for memory backup
When the battery pack power goes low, immediately charge it or replace it with a
charged battery pack.
You can use the Dual Battery Charger, the Cradle-type Battery Charger, the Bridge
Basic Cradle, or the Bridge Satellite Cradle to charge a battery pack. See the sections of
this guide that cover the Dual Battery Charger, the Cradle-type Battery Charger, the
Bridge Basic Cradle, and the Bridge Satellite Cradle for information about how to use
them for charging.
Replacing the Battery Pack
Important!
Always keep backup copies of all important data!
• The main battery powers normal operation and also provides power required to
maintain memory contents, while the backup battery provides backup power to
maintain memory contents. Because of this, you should not remove the main
battery while the backup battery is dead. Removing the battery pack while the
backup battery is dead causes data in the memory to be corrupted or lost. Note
that once data is lost it cannot be recovered. Always keep separate backup copies
of all important data.
• The charge of a battery pack when you purchase it may be depleted due to
testing at the factory or natural discharge during shipment and storage. Be sure
to charge the battery pack before you use it.
• The life of a battery pack is limited, and charging a battery pack causes it to
gradually lose its ability to maintain the charge. If your battery pack seems to
require charging very frequently, it probably means it is time to purchase a new one.
• A fully charged backup battery can maintain memory (RAM) contents for about
10 minutes, even when the main battery is removed.
• The backup battery achieves a full charge in about four days when the battery
pack is loaded.
E-21
To replace the battery pack
1. Make sure that the Handheld Terminal is turned off.
If the power is on, press the power key to turn it off.
2. Turn over the Handheld Terminal.
3. Turn the battery pack lock switch on the back of the Handheld Terminal to the

Performing Data Communication
IR Data Communication
IR data communication can be used to transfer data between two Handheld Terminals.
When performing IR data communication, orient the IR ports of both Handheld
Terminals so they are pointing directly at each other.
The ports can be in direct contact with each other, or they can be separated by up to 1
meter (3'31⁄2") (up to 25cm (97⁄8") for 4Mbps data communication).
Important!
• A high-sensitivity communication element is used during IR data
communication.
• In order to ensure successful communication, avoid using cellular phones or
other devices that emit radio wave in the area where you are performing IR data
communication.
• If you need to use such a device, move away from the communicating Handheld
Terminals. In case of a cellular phone, keep it at least 30cm (117⁄8") away.
E-30
BluetoothTM Data Communication (IT-500M30B/M30CB)
BluetoothTM protocol can also be used to transfer data between two Handheld
Terminals.
With BluetoothTM the two Handheld Terminals should be located within about three
meters (9'103⁄8") from each other, as long as there is nothing blocking the path between
them.
Important!
Observe the following precautions to help ensure that data communication is
successful.
• Make sure the BluetoothTM devices are located within three meters (9'103⁄8") of
each other. Surroundings (obstacles) may require a shorter distance between the
two devices.
• Make sure there is at least two meters (6' 7") between this device and other
devices (electrical appliances, audio-visual equipment, OA equipment, and
digital cordless telephones, facsimile machines, etc.). (Take special care with
microwave ovens. Allow at least three meters (9' 103⁄8) between communicating
devices and a microwave oven.) When approaching such a device when its
power is turned on, proper data communication may prove impossible while this
may also cause interference with TV and radio reception (images produced by
certain UHF and broadcast satellite channels may become blurry).
• Normal data communication may not be possible in an area near a broadcast
transmitter or wireless transmitter. If this happens, move to a different location.
Normal data communication may not be possible in areas exposed to strong
radio waves.
• RF Wireless LAN Interference
Because BluetoothTM and RF wireless LAN use the same frequency band
(2.4GHz), radio interference can occur if there is a wireless LAN device nearby.
This can result in lower data communication speeds, or even make it impossible
to establish a connection. If this happens, try the following countermeasures.
• Move at least 10 meters (32'103⁄4") away from the wireless LAN device.
• If you cannot keep the distance at least 10 meters (32'103⁄4") or more between the
Handheld Terminal and a wireless LAN device, turn off the power of either the
Handheld terminal or the wireless LAN device.
• Set the RF wireless LAN mode of the Handheld Terminal to off.
E-31
Resetting the Handheld Terminal
Resetting the Handheld Terminal is the same as restarting a computer. Performing a
reset causes all unsaved inputs and edits to be lost, but data that is already stored in the
memory as well as all settings should be unaffected.
Use reset to restore normal operation whenever the Handheld Terminal operates
abnormally due to misoperation or some other reason.
Use the stylus to press the reset switch on the back of the Handheld Terminal.
This starts the reset operation.

memory (RAM) is deleted and all the settings are returned to their initial factory
defaults.
Perform a full reset whenever any one of the following conditions exists.
• When you want to delete all memory contents and return the settings to their initial
factory defaults.
• When you are no longer able to use the Handheld Terminal because you forgot your
password.
• When the Handheld Terminal does not operate normally due to a memory problem.
• When the message “A problem with memory contents has been found. ...” appears.
