About the EL backlight
•
•
•
•
•
The PV Unit is equipped with an EL backlight that allows easy viewing
of display contents in a theater, or anywhere else where lighting is dim.
icon to turn on the EL backlight and illuminate the display
Tap the
screen.
You can use the procedure on page 23 to specify how long the EL
backlight stays on (approximately 15 or 30 seconds).
Note that EL backlight operation consumes large amounts of electrical
power and can greatly shorten battery life.
Note that frequent or extended use of the EL backlight shortens battery
life.
The following shows how backlight use affects battery life under controlled
test conditions*. For comparison with the values below, battery life is
normally approximately 180 hours of continuous display in the Contacts
Mode when no backlight operation is performed.
Backlight Operation
3 minutes per hour
15 minutes per hour
Battery Life
Approximately 80 hours
Approximately 35 hours
* Test Conditions
• “Battery Life” is the number of hours before battery failure when
the unit is left on (5 minutes of a processing operation and 55 minutes
of continuous display only (no processing operation) per hour in the
Contacts Mode, plus the backlight operation described below). The
above values assume ambient temperature of 20°C, starting with a
fresh set of new batteries.
• “Backlight Operation” is the number of minutes the backlight is
turned on per hour during the display only (no processing operation)
period.
• Be sure to use alkaline batteries. Manganese batteries provide very
short battery life.

Turning On the PV Unit
You can turn on the PV Unit by clicking the Action control. You can also set up
the PV Unit so it turns on when you tap its screen with the stylus (screen tap
power on).
Note
• Use the procedure under “To turn the screen tap power on feature on and off”
on page 21 to control the screen tap power on setting.
• The screen tap power on feature is turned on when you use the PV Unit for
the first time after purchasing it.

Getting Acquainted
Read this first!
•
•
Be sure to read this part of the User’s Guide before doing anything else! It
includes important information that you need to know in order to use the
PV-S460/PV-S660 (hereinafter referred to as the “PV Unit”) correctly.
You can find more detailed information about other PV Unit operations in
“Chapter 14 – General Reference” on page 140 and “Chapter 16 – Technical
Reference” on page 163.
Important!
Please keep this User’s Guide and all information handy for future reference.
Note
The screen shots shown in this User’s Guide may differ slightly from the displays
actually produced by your PV Unit.
Make backup copies of important data!
Your PV Unit employs flash memory, which makes it possible to store large
volumes of data and to recall data quickly and easily. Data is retained when power
is turned off and even when batteries go dead, but it can be corrupted or lost
entirely due to operational mistakes or malfunction. Data contents can also be
corrupted or lost due to strong electrostatic charge, strong impact, or extremes in
temperature and humidity. All of this means that you should always keep back-up
copies of important data by transferring it to a personal computer or by writing it
down somewhere.

Important Precautions
Note the following important precautions whenever using your PV Unit.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Never expose the PV Unit to fire.
Avoid temperature extremes. Do not locate the PV Unit in direct sunlight,
near a window, near a heater, etc.
In very low temperatures display response may slow down or fail entirely.
This condition is temporary and operation should resume under normal
temperatures.
Avoid areas subject to excessive moisture, dirt, and dust.
Avoid dropping the PV Unit and otherwise subjecting it to strong impact.
Never bend or twist the PV Unit.
Never try to take the PV Unit apart.
Make sure nothing gets between the hard cover and the touch screen.
Besides creating the risk of scratching the touch screen, an object coming
into contact with the screen can cause power to turn on and run down
the batteries.
Do not use a pen, pencil, or other sharp object to touch or press the
display.
To clean the exterior of the PV Unit, wipe it with a soft cloth dampened
in a weak solution of a mild neutral detergent and water. Be sure to
wring out any excess moisture from the cloth before wiping off the PV
Unit. Never use benzene, thinner, or any other volatile agent to clean
the unit. Doing so can remove the figures printed on the case or otherwise
damage the case finish.
The contents of this manual are subject to change without notice.
CASIO COMPUTER CO., LTD. assumes no responsibility for any loss
or claims by third parties that may arise from the use of this product.

Chapter 1
Getting Acquainted
Data Errors
The PV Unit performs a self-check routine whenever you turn it on. The message
shown below appears if the PV Unit detects a problem with data stored in its
memory.
Once data is lost due to a data error it cannot be recovered. Data errors are generally
caused by one of the following problems.
•
•
•
Interruption of battery power
Severe electrostatic charge, strong impact, changes in temperature, or
changes in humidity
Hardware problems
Once the data error message appears, the PV Unit will not accept any input or
editing of data. In order to return memory to normal (and permit further data
editing and input), you have to perform the RESET operation to clear all data.
Before doing so, you may want to recall important data and write it down (if you
don’t yet have a copy). You can then re-input the data after clearing PV Unit
memory.
Continued problems after performing the RESET operation can indicate a serious
hardware problem. Consult with your nearest CASIO dealer if problems persist.
To reset after viewing data
1. After the Data error message appears, tap Yes.
2. In response to the message that appears (Data error! Consult your
User’s Guide for correct procedure.), tap OK.
• This displays the pop up tool screen.
3. Now you can enter other modes to recall data and make handwritten
copies if you want.
4. After recalling the data you want, perform the RESET operation under
“Resetting the PV Unit” on page 167.

Your PV Unit can be powered by two AAA-size alkaline batteries.
Important!
• Normally the flash memory of the PV Unit retains its data even when power
is turned off and when batteries go dead. Mis-operation or other problems,
however, can cause data to become corrupted or lost. Always keep separate
copies of important data.
Low Battery Warning
The message shown below appears whenever battery power drops below a
certain level. Replace the batteries immediately after this message appears:
Batteries are getting weak! Replace them as instructed in the User’s
Guide.
Important!
• If you continue using the PV Unit after the low battery warning message
appears, power may suddenly turn off or the contrast adjustment screen
may suddenly appear. Should this happen, replace batteries immediately.
• Be sure to use alkaline batteries. Manganese batteries provide very short
battery life.
Battery Precautions
Incorrectly using batteries can cause them to burst or leak, possibly damaging
the interior of the PV Unit. Note the following precautions.
•
Be sure to use alkaline batteries only to power this PV Unit.
•
Be sure that the positive (+) side of each battery is
facing in the correct directions.
•
Never mix batteries of different types.
19
Chapter 1
Getting Acquainted
•
Never mix old batteries and new ones.
•
Do not expose batteries to direct heat, let them become shorted, or try to
take them apart.
•
Never leave dead batteries in the battery
compartment.
•
Remove the batteries if you do not plan to use the PV Unit for a long
time.
•
Replace batteries at least once every year, no matter how much you use
the PV Unit during that period.
•
About once a month, turn on the PV Unit and check its battery level. If
the low battery warning appears or if nothing at all appears on the display,
replace batteries as soon as possible.
•
Never try to recharge the batteries that come with
the PV Unit.
•
Should a battery leak, clean out the battery compartment of the PV Unit
immediately, taking care to avoid letting battery fluid come into direct
contact with your skin.
Keep batteries out of the reach of small children. If swallowed, consult
with a physician immediately.
•
•
Frequent data synchronization using the PC sync for Windows
application that comes with the PV Unit shortens battery life.
The batteries that come with this unit discharge slightly during
shipment and storage. Because of this, they may require replacement
sooner than the normal expected battery life.

About the EL backlight
•
•
•
Tapping the
icon while the backlight is on turns it off.
The backlight may fail to turn on when battery power is low and during
data communication.
Frequent use of the backlight shortens battery life. The following shows
how backlight use affects battery life under controlled test conditions.*
For comparison with the values below, battery life is normally about
180 hours of continuous display in the Contacts Mode when no backlight
operation is performed.
Backlight Operation
3 minutes per hour
15 minutes per hour
Battery Life
Approximately 80 hours
Approximately 35 hours
* Test Conditions
• “Battery Life” is the number of hours before battery failure when
the unit is left on (5 minutes of a processing operation and 55 minutes
of continuous display only (no processing operation) per hour in the
Contacts Mode, plus the backlight operation described below). The
above values assume ambient temperature of 20°C, starting with a
fresh set of new batteries.

Columns are named using the letters of the alphabet from A to Z, while
rows are numbered sequentially from 1 to 999.
The maximum capacity for a single sheet is about 32KB (about 1,900
cells when each cell contains one character, without any format settings
or borderlines). The message “Sheet is too big!” appears on the display
whenever the contents of a file exceeds this limit.
If a sheet being received by the unit during a Pocket Sheet Sync operation
exceeds the maximum limit (about 32KB), the excess cell data is
automatically cut off. In this case, the sync operation ends normally,
with no indication that the data was cut off. This means you should
always check sheet contents visually after a sync operation is complete.
A cell is referred to using its cell reference, which is made up of the
cell’s column name and row number. This means that the cell reference
of the upper left cell in the above sheet is A1, and the cell reference of
the lower right cell is D5.
The active cell is the one that is currently selected for input. The active
cell is highlighted.
The numeric keyboard appears first whenever you open a new sheet.
84
Chapter 8 Pocket Sheet
Making a Cell the Active Cell
You can make a cell active by tapping it with the stylus so it becomes
highlighted. You can also move the highlighting around the display using
the scroll bar.
• Tapping the gray areas of the scroll bar scrolls the entire screen with the
highlighted active cursor in the same relative position in the newly
displayed screen.
Selecting a Range of Cells
While a sheet is open on the display, drag the stylus across the range of cells
you want to select. The cells become highlighted as you drag across them.
Jumping to a Specific Cell in a Sheet
Important!
• You cannot jump to a cell located inside a row or column that is frozen. To
jump to such a cell, you must unfreeze the row or column first (page 98).
1. While a sheet is on the display, tap Menu Bar to display the menu bar,
and then tap Edit – Go To to display the Go To screen.
2. On the screen that appears, use the on-screen keyboard to type in the
cell reference (column and row) of the cell to which you want to jump.

Inputting Data Into a Cell
This section explains the rules and procedures for inputting text, values, and
mathematical expressions into sheet cells. It also contains detailed information
on the various cell functions that are available.
General Input Rules
The following are the general rules that you should observe whenever
inputting data.
•
•
•
•
Anything you enter on the keyboard is input into the sheet’s active cell.
You can input up to 256 characters into each cell.
Mixing text and numbers inside the same cell causes everything in the
cell to be treated as text.
Do not manually input commas as separators inside values. Doing so
interferes with correct display of calculation results. Use the procedure
under “Changing the Format Settings of a Cell” on page 93 to turn on
automatic comma separators.
Cell References
The term cell reference means calling the contents of one cell into another
cell. Pocket Sheet supports three types of cell references: relative, absolute,
and mixed. Whether a cell references is relative, absolute, or mixed does not
make affect the results it normally produces. The cell reference type matters
only when the contents of the cell are copied and then pasted into another
location. See “Copying a Relative Cell Reference” on page 105 and “Copying
an Absolute or Mixed Cell Reference” on page 105 for full information
about how cell references are affected by cut, copy, and paste operations.
86
Chapter 8 Pocket Sheet
Relative Cell References
As its name suggests, a relative cell reference is one that references a cell in
relation to the cell where the reference is made. Note the following examples.
Relative Cell
Reference
A1
A1:A10
A1:E1
Meaning
Contents of cell A1
Contents of the column of cells from A1
through A10
Contents of the row of cells from A1 to E1
Absolute Cell References
An absolute cell reference is one that references a specific cell, no matter
where it is located in relation to the cell where the reference is made. A
reference is made absolute by inserting a dollar sign in front of its column
name and row number. Note the following examples.
Absolute Cell
Reference
$A$1
$A$1:$A$10
$A$1:$E$1
Meaning
Contents of cell A1. Both the column ($A) and
row ($1) references are absolute.
Contents of the column of cells from A1
through A10. All the column and row
references are absolute.
Contents of the row of cells from A1 to E1. All
the column and row references are absolute.
87
Chapter 8 Pocket Sheet
Mixed Cell References
A mixed cell reference is one in which one component (column name or
row number) is relative, and the other component is absolute. Note the
following examples.
Mixed Cell
Reference
$A1
A$1
Meaning
Contents of cell A1. The column reference ($A)
is absolute, and the row reference (1) is
relative.
Contents of cell A1. The column reference (A)
is relative, and the row reference ($1) is
absolute.

Inputting Mathematical Expressions
You can set up a cell to perform arithmetic operations (addition, subtraction,
multiplication, division), and other useful functions like SUM (sum of a
series of values), MIN (extracts the lowest value), and COUNT (counts the
number of values). You can also use parentheses to ensure that operations
are performed in the sequence you want.
•
•
•
Inputting a mathematical expression causes its result to be displayed in
the cell. The mathematical expression itself appears in the input field
only.
The results of mathematical operations are normally displayed flush right
in the cell.
If the result of a mathematical expression is longer than the cell that
contains it, the contents of the cell are replaced by a string of # marks.
This is to let you know that the cell contains a value, but the value cannot
be displayed. If this happens, try making the cell wider (page 97).
To input a mathematical expression
1. Make the cell where you want to input the expression the active cell.
2. On the on-screen keyboard, tap =.
• Inputting = as the first character tells the PV Unit that what follows is a
mathematical expression.
3. Use the on-screen keyboard to input the mathematical expression you
want.
• Tapping the buttons above the keyboard inputs the corresponding
function. See “Examples” below for details.
4. After the content of the cell is the way you want, tap NEXT to store it.

Chapter 8 Pocket Sheet
Inputting Text
Text (letters and numbers) can be input into the active cell using the onscreen text input keyboard.
•
•
•
•
•
Input make up entirely of numbers (including decimal point) is treated
as a numeric value. Inclusion of even a single non-numeric character
(alpha-character or symbol) causes the input to be treated as text.
Text is normally aligned in the cell flush left, while numbers are aligned
flush right.
If a text string is longer than the cell, the extra text is allowed to extend
into the next cell to the right in the sheet display, as long as the
neighboring cell does not contain any data. If it does, the extra characters
are cut off in the sheet display.
If an input value is longer than the cell that contains it, the contents of
the cell are replaced by a string of # marks. This is to let you know that
the cell contains a value, but the value cannot be displayed. If this
happens, try making the cell wider (page 97).
If the first character in a cell is an equals sign (=), the text is considered
to be part of a mathematical expression.

The Quick Find feature is enabled when inputting Schedule, To Do, or
Reminder description text.
Quick Find memory can hold approximately 30 words, when all are 32
characters long. The number of words that can be stored is greater when
each word contains fewer characters.
Quick Find memory comes with 30 default terms. These default terms
are restored into Quick Find memory whenever you reset the PV Unit
(page 167).
When memory is full, oldest words are deleted automatically as new
words are added to the memory.
To input a word with the Quick Find feature
1. As you are typing in text in an input screen, the Quick Find input list
appears after you input two characters, if there are words in Quick Find
memory that start with the characters you input.
2. Tap on one of the words in the Quick Find list to complete your input, or
continue typing in text on the keyboard.
• Tapping a word inserts the remaining letters of the word you tap in the

Memory Management
The memory of your PV Unit is designed to make your normal data input and
recall operations as quick and efficient as possible. After repeated storage and
deletion of data, however, you may find that you are unable to store new data,
even after you have deleted some data from memory. When this happens, you
need to perform the following “memory management” procedure, which cleans
up and rearranges unused memory to make it available for storage of more data.
Note
• When you need to perform memory management depends entirely on how
often you delete data from memory and store new data. The more you delete
and store, the sooner you will need to perform the memory management
procedure.
To perform memory management
1. Tap Menu Bar to display the menu bar, and then tap System – Memory
management.
2. In response to the message that appears, tap Yes to start memory
management or No to close the dialog box without doing anything.
• The message shown below appears after you tap Yes to start memory
management.

to be pushed outside the range of the
sheet. This causes the data in the
cells to be deleted.
Action: Tap Yes to go ahead with the
operation, or No to close the dialog
box without doing anything.
177
Chapter 16 Technical Reference
