• Keep a battery pack that is emitting a strange odor or leaking fluid away
from open flame. Fluid leaking from the battery pack is highly flammable.
It creates the danger of fire and explosion.
Warning
• Never expose the battery pack to direct flame, do not throw it into fire, fresh
water, or seawater. Doing so can damage the built in safety and protection
mechanisms, and cause battery fluid to ignite, creating the danger of fire and
explosion.
• Should fluid from the battery pack ever accidentally get into your eyes, do
not rub them. Rinse your eyes with tap water and then consult your
physician immediately.
• If the battery pack does not achieve full charge after the normal charge time,
stop charging. Continued charging creates the danger of fire, overheating,
and explosion.

• Never use a voltage that is different from that for which the AC adapter is
rated. Also, do not plug the unit into a power outlet that is shared by other
devices. Doing so creates the danger of fire and electrical shock.
• Never modify the power cord or excessively bend, twist, or pull it. Doing so
creates the danger of fire and electrical shock.
• Do not allow the power cord to become damaged. Do not place heavy
objects on the power cord or expose it to heat. A damaged power cord
creates the danger of fire and electrical shock.
• Never touch the AC adapter while your hands are wet. Doing so creates the
danger of electrical shock.
• Should the power cord ever become seriously damaged (internal wiring
exposed or shorted), contact your original dealer or an authorized CASIO
service provider to request servicing. Continued use of a seriously damaged
power cord creates the danger of fire and electrical shock.
• Use only the AC adapter specified for this unit. Use of another type of AC
adapter can damage the battery pack and create the danger of fire and
personal injury.
6
Caution
• Unplug the AC adapter from the wall outlet whenever leaving the unit
unattended for long periods.
• At least once a year, unplug the AC adapter from the power outlet and clean
the area around the prongs of the plug. Dust build up around the prongs can
create the danger of fire.
• Be sure to unplug the AC adapter from the wall outlet before attempting to
move the unit to another location.
• Be sure to grasp the AC adapter when unplugging it from a wall outlet.
Pulling on the power cord can damage it, and create the danger of fire and
electrical shock.

Operating Precautions
The CASSIOPEIA is a precision digital instrument. Incorrect operation and rough
handling can cause data storage problems and other malfunction. Be sure to read the
following precautions to ensure proper operation.
• Charge the battery pack as soon as possible when they start to become weak.
Continued use while power is low can lead to loss of memory data.
• Do not leave dead batteries in the CASSIOPEIA for long periods. Doing so can result
in battery leakage, which can damage the CASSIOPEIA and cause malfunction.
• Use the CASSIOPEIA under the conditions listed below.
• Temperature: –5°C to 50°C (23°F to 122°F)
• No condensation
Conditions other than those above can cause malfunction.
• Avoid using the CASSIOPEIA in areas subjected to the following conditions.
• Static electricity
• Extreme heat or cold
• High humidity
• Sudden temperature changes
• Large amounts of dust
• If you drop the CASSIOPEIA and damage it, immediately turn off power and contact
your original dealer or an authorized CASIO service provider. Never continue using a
damaged unit.
• Never place heavy objects on top of the CASSIOPEIA.

Important
• The TFT color LCD is a product of the latest color LCD manufacturing technology.
However, virtually all TFT color LCDs have a very small number of pixels (about
0.01% of the total number of pixels) that do not turn on or always remain turned on.
This is normal and does not indicate malfunction.
• Playing back movies, digital camera images, and audio files consumes large amounts
of power and may cause the CASSIOPEIA to become warm to the touch.
This is normal and does not indicate malfunction.
• To avoid certain system problems, the [Power] button is disabled (you cannot use it to
turn off power) for about three seconds after you turn on power.
• Inserting or removing a CompactFlash Card while the CASSIOPEIA is off causes
power to turn on automatically. This is done so the CASSIOPEIA can detect the card
slot status.
Precautions About Drip-Proofing (Against vertically falling
water drops)
Your CASSIOPEIA is designed to be drip-proof, which means it can withstand
exposure to small amounts of rain, snow, and splashing with water. Note the following
important precautions concerning the drip-proofing of this product.
• Whenever the CASSIOPEIA is expose to rain or other moisture, wipe it off
immediately with a soft, dry cloth.
• Never expose the CASSIOPEIA to large amounts of water.
• Always check to make sure that the rechargeable battery pack and drip-proof covers
(jack cover, card cover, serial connector cover) are firmly in place before using the
CASSIOPEIA. Be sure to move to a location where there is no water splashing
before removing the battery pack, or opening or closing a cover.
• Make sure that all covers are securely closed before using the CASSIOPEIA where
there is the danger of it being splashed with water.
• When attaching the rechargeable battery pack or closing a cover, make sure there is
nothing (hair, dust, dirt particles, etc.) stuck to it. A soiled cover can allow moisture
to get into the CASSIOPEIA, leading to serious damage and malfunction.
• The gasket of the battery pack and the various covers are essential to maintaining
proper drip-proofing. Make sure you protect them against becoming soiled or
damaged.
• Using the CASSIOPEIA where water is present while the battery pack is not attached
or while a cover is open can result in water getting into the unit. Malfunction of the
unit due to the ingress of water is not covered under the warranty.

Two types of batteries are used for power: a main battery and a memory backup battery.
The main battery is a rechargeable user-replaceable battery pack. The memory backup
battery is a button type lithium battery that provides the power required to retain
memory contents. Note that the memory backup battery is not user-replaceable.
• See “Main Battery and Backup Battery” on page 25 for more information about the
main battery and memory backup battery.
24
External AC Power
Connecting the AC adapter (page 34) or AC adapter/charger (page 35) to the AC
adapter jack on the left side of the CASSIOPEIA unit provides power in place of the
main battery. AC power is also supplied through the power terminals on the bottom of
the CASSIOPEIA whenever it is placed on the cradle (page 37).
• The CASSIOPEIA can operate under AC power only if its rechargeable battery pack
is attached. This is true regardless of whether the AC power is being supplied through
the AC power jack or the power terminals.
• External AC power also charges the battery pack attached to the CASSIOPEIA. See
“Charging a Battery Pack on the CASSIOPEIA” on page 27 for more information.
Main Battery and Backup Battery
Your CASSIOPEIA uses two types of batteries for power: a rechargeable userreplaceable rechargeable battery pack for the main battery, and a button type lithium
battery for memory backup.
• We recommend that you use the Power Properties to keep informed about the current
levels of your main and backup batteries. See the separate Pocket PC User’s Guide
and Pocket PC online help for more information about this Properties.
Important
The following messages appear whenever battery power drops below a certain level.
Main Battery
Recharge the battery pack as soon as possible after the following message appears.
“Main Batteries Very Low
To prevent possible data loss, replace or recharge your main batteries according to
the owner’s manual.”
Backup Battery
Charge the battery pack as soon as possible after the message shown below appears on
the display of the CASSIOPEIA. Charging the battery pack also charges the memory
backup battery.
“Backup Battery Very Low
To prevent possible data loss, replace or recharge your backup battery according
to the owner’s manual.”
• You can monitor the current battery power level accessing Power Properties or by
checking the battery icon in the command bar of the Today screen.
• Whenever the low battery warning message appears, especially if it appears right
after you turn on power, follow the instructions that appear on the screen and replace
batteries as soon as possible. Continued use under low battery power can cause
unstable performance of your Pocket PC.
25
• Data stored in memory can be lost if you continue operation after the low battery message
appears or if you incorrectly load batteries. Be sure to always back up important data on
your desktop computer hard disk or on a CompactFlash Card. See ActiveSync Help for
information about backing up files to a desktop computer.
• See the Card Backup Tool manual (PDF file) on the CASSIOPEIA CD-ROM for
information about backing up data to a CompactFlash Card for information about
using the Card Backup Tool program to back up data to a CompactFlash Card.
• Never remove the battery pack from the CASSIOPEIA while memory backup battery
power is low. Doing so can cause a loss of data in memory.
• Use only the specified rechargeable battery pack type as the main battery. Never use
another type of battery.
If unit power turns off due to insufficient power, the following warning message
appears on the display the next time you turn on unit power.
“Warning

to protect memory contents...”
If unit power turns off due to sudden power drain by a CompactFlash Card, the
following warning message appears on the display the next time you turn on unit
power.
“Warning
Due to high current demand by the card, the system powered down in order to
protect memory contents...”
Important
Be sure to observe the following important battery handling precautions. Failure to do
so can cause batteries to leak, resulting in damage to surrounding items and create the
danger of fire and electrical shock.
• Use only the types of batteries specified for use with this unit.
• Charge the battery pack in an area where the temperature is between 10°C (50°F)
and 35°C (95°F). Charging in areas that are very cold or exposed to direct sunlight
can cause deterioration and leaking of the battery pack.
• To avoid deterioration and leaking, the battery pack is designed to discharge even
when you do not use the CASSIOPEIA. Be sure to recharge the battery pack at least
once every three months, regardless of how much you use the CASSIOPEIA during
that time.
• A battery pack that loses power too quickly after it is charged is probably near the
end of its service life. In such a case, you have to purchase a new battery pack.
26
Replacing the Battery Pack (Main Battery)
1. Make sure the CASSIOPEIA is turned off.
• If power is on, press the [Power] button to turn it off.
2. Turn the CASSIOPEIA over.
3. Use a coin or screwdriver to rotate the battery lock counterclockwise. Next, remove
the battery pack.
4. Insert the bottom edge of the new battery pack into the groove at the bottom of the
battery compartment, and then swing the top of the battery pack into place.
• Double-check to make sure that the battery pack is oriented correctly.
5. Rotate the battery lock clockwise to secure the battery pack in place.
Charging the Battery Pack on the CASSIOPEIA
1. Attach the rechargeable battery pack to your CASSIOPEIA.
2. Use one of the three following procedures to charge the battery pack.
Charge using the AC adapter (page 34)
Charge using the AC adapter/charger (page 35)
Charge using the cradle (page 37)
• Charging starts automatically.
• The charge indicator on the CASSIOPEIA lights amber while charging is in progress,
and changes to green when charging is complete.
• An M Type battery pack takes about five hours to reach a full charge when the
CASSIOPEIA is turned off while charging.
27
• The time required to attain a full charge is greatly affected by ambient temperature
and the type of operations you perform on the CASSIOPEIA while charging is taking
place.
• You can normally operate the CASSIOPEIA while charging is taking place.
However, you will not be able to perform any operation when setting up the
CASSIOPEIA the first time after you purchased it, or while charging a new battery
pack for the first time.
Using a CompactFlash Card
Your CASSIOPEIA supports Type I and Type II CompactFlash cards (3.3V).
Important
• The card slot cover will not close when certain types of cards are in the slot. When
using such a card, detach the strap from the card slot cover, remove the card slot
cover from the CASSIOPEIA, and keep the cover in a safe place so you can replace it
when you remove the card.
• Gently but firmly slide the card into place as far as it will go, but do not force it.
Forcing a card can damage connectors. If you have problems inserting a card, pull it
out and check to make sure it is oriented correctly.
• We strongly recommend that you store all unsaved data you are inputting or editing
before performing this procedure.
• Sometimes, your CASSIOPEIA may not be able to detect a CompactFlash card. This is
indicated when a program on the card does not start up normally. When this happens,
remove the card, reinsert it, and then press the CASSIOPEIA RESET button.
• Your CASSIOPEIA supports 3.3V CompactFlash cards only. Cards that can operate
on 5.0V only are not supported.
1. Make sure your CASSIOPEIA is turned off.
• Press the [Power] button to turn off power.
2. Remove the stylus 1 and then remove the card cover 2.

Carefully slide the card into the slot as far as it will go.
6. Re-attach the card slot cover to the CASSIOPEIA.
• If you are using a digital camera card or another type of card equipped with a lock,
slide the card lock to the LOCK setting to secure the card in place.
Infrared Communications
The infrared port of this unit can be used to exchange data with another CASSIOPEIA,
or with another device equipped with infrared communication capabilities. Remember
that the two infrared ports must be pointed directly at each other when performing
communications. The distance between the two infrared ports must be less than 30 cm.
See the Pocket PC User’s Guide for full details on performing infrared communications.
For infrared data communications with another device, the other device must conform
with IrDA 1.1 standards, and it must specifically support infrared data communication
with a CASSIOPEIA.
29
Important
• Take care so either of the units does not move while infrared data communications
are in progress.
• Infrared data communications may be impossible under strong sunlight or inverter
type fluorescent lighting.
• Infrared data communication problems can be caused by the distance between the
two ports, the angle between the two ports, outdoor sunlight, and low batteries.
• Dirt and dust on the infrared port surface can cause communications errors and other
problems. Use a soft, dry cloth to wipe the port clean of dirt and dust.
Resetting the Unit
“Reset” is similar to a computer reboot. Performing a reset deletes any data that is in
the process of being input or edited, without yet being saved. Data stored in memory
and all settings, however, are retained.
Perform the reset operation whenever the unit fails to operate correctly due to
operational error or some other abnormality. Either of the following symptoms
indicates that reset is required.
• If the unit does not respond when you tap the screen or press a button
• If the icon that indicates a procedure is in progress remains on the display for a long
time
Important
We strongly recommend that you back up the data in CASSIOPEIA memory, if
possible, before performing a reset. Normally the reboot-type reset does not delete data
in CASSIOPEIA memory. If corrupted data is discovered, however, all data stored in
memory will be deleted. Not matter what type of computing device you are using, it is
always a good idea to back up memory contents periodically to protect against
unexpected loss of data.
Performing a Reset
1. Use the stylus to press the RESET button.
30
• The unit performs a reset followed by a memory check operation.
If no data error is found, the following two screens appear on the display in succession.
• Startup screen
• Desktop
2. Normal unit operation is possible after the desktop appears.
• Memory data and settings are retained when you reset the Pocket PC.
Important
If the above operation does not solve the problem, perform a full reset (memory
initialize, page 32).
Memory Error Message
If the memory check operation that the unit performs when the RESET button is
pressed detects a data error, the following message appears on the screen instead of the
startup screen.
“A problem with memory contents has been found. Press [Action] to continue with
the reset procedure, which restores normal system operation.
Note that if the system determines that user memory cannot be repaired, it will
delete all user data currently in memory.
See the User’s Guide for details about initializing memory.”
This message indicates that the memory error is fatal and so recovery is impossible.
Press the [Action] control to execute a full reset (memory initialize), which deletes all
data stored in memory.
• Pressing the [Action] control should display the Startup screen followed by the touch
screen calibration screen. The remainder of this procedure identical to the Initial
Setup described in the Quick Start Guide. Perform the steps of the Initial Setup
procedure.
• If pressing the [Action] control returns to the desktop without displaying the startup
screen first, see the following explanation for the procedure you need to follow.
What to do if the startup screen does not appear when you press the
[Action] control
Even though the desktop appears when you press the [Action] control, there is still a
data error in memory and you have to perform a full reset (memory initialize). Before
you do, however, there is the chance that some of the data in memory can be recalled
and even transferred to a computer. Try recalling the data you need before performing
the procedure described on the next page to perform a full reset.
31
Important
Do not use the ActiveSync backup function to back up data to a computer when you
suspect a data error. Doing so may also include the corrupted data that is causing your
problem, which means the problem will reappear when you restore the data.
Full Reset (Memory Initialize)
Full reset (memory initialize) deletes all data, and resets all unit parameters to their
initial defaults.
The following are conditions when you should perform a full reset.
• When you want to delete all memory data and return unit settings to their factory
defaults
• When you forget your password and need to clear it
• When a data error causes operational problems
• Appearance of the message: “A problem with memory contents has been found...”
Performing a Full Reset
Important
• The following procedure deletes all data in memory. Be sure that data is backed up or
that you no longer need it before performing the following procedure.
• If there is a CompactFlash Card in the CASSIOPEIA’s slot, remove the card before
performing the full reset.
1. Make sure that unit power is turned on.
2. While holding down the [Power] button, use the stylus to hold down the RESET
button for about two seconds.
• This causes the following message to appear on the display screen.
“Proceeding with this operation initializes memory. Press [Action] to proceed or
[Record] to cancel.”
3. Press the [Action] control.
• This causes the following message to appear on the display screen.
“Proceeding with this operation deletes all data stored in memory. Press [Action]
to proceed or [Record] to cancel.”
32
4. Press the [Action] control again.
• This starts the full reset operation, which deletes all data in memory.
• Pressing the [Action] control displays the Startup screen. The remainder of this
procedure identical to the Initial Setup described in the Quick Start Guide. Perform
the steps of the Initial Setup procedure.
You can abort the full reset operation while the messages in steps 2 and 3 are on the
display by pressing the [Record] button.
Errors Following a Full Reset
If errors continue to persist even after you perform a full reset, it can mean that your
CASSIOPEIA is defective. Contact your original dealer or an authorized CASIO
service provider to request servicing.

Using Peripherals
This section explains use of the various peripherals that are available for use with the
CASSIOPEIA.
Using the AC Adapter
You can use the AC adapter to directly power the CASSIOPEIA or to supply power
through the cradle. The battery pack charges while the CASSIOPEIA is directly
connected to a power source by the AC adapter or while it is on the cradle.
See “Charging the Battery Pack on the CASSIOPEIA” on page 27 for more
information about battery pack charging.
Direct Connection
Cradle Connection
Warning
• Use only the AC adapter that is specified for this unit. Use of another type of AC
adapter creates the risk of malfunction and bursting of the battery pack.
Important
• The CASSIOPEIA will not operate under AC power while the battery pack attached
to it is dead. Wait for a while to allow the battery pack to charge before using the
CASSIOPEIA.
• Long-term use of the AC adapter can cause it to become warm to the touch. This is
normal and does not indicate malfunction.
• Be sure to unplug the AC adapter from the power outlet whenever you are not using it.
• The AC adapter is designed for indoor use only. Never use it outdoors.
34
Using the AC Adapter/Charger (CH-C59200U)
