If the digital display of the watch is blank...
If the Power Saving indicator (
) is flashing on the
display, it means that the display is blank because the
watch’s Power Saving function has turned it off to
conserve power. Power Saving automatically turns off the
display and enters a sleep state whenever your watch is
left for a certain period in an area where it is dark. If the
watch is kept in the dark for a longer period, the analog
hands will also stop moving after a few days.
• The initial factory default setting is Power Saving on.
• The watch will recover from the sleep state if you move it
to a well-lit area, if you press any button, or if you angle
the watch towards your face for reading.
• See “Power Saving Function” for more information.

Reception time
Time Calibration Signal Reception
There are two different methods you can use to receive the time calibration signal:
auto receive and manual receive.
• Auto Receive
With auto receive, the watch automatically picks up the time calibration signal five
times a day at 0:00 a.m., 1:00 a.m., 2:00 a.m., 3:00 a.m., and 4:00 a.m. For more
information, see “About Auto Receive”.
• Manual Receive
Manual receive lets you start a time calibration signal reception with the press of a
button. For more information, see “To perform manual receive”.
Important!
• When getting ready to receive the time calibration signal, position the watch as
shown in the nearby illustration, with its 12 o’clock side facing towards a window.
Make sure there are no metal objects nearby.

• Time calibration signal reception takes from two to six minutes, but in some cases it
can take as long as 12 minutes. Take care that you do not perform any button
operations or move the watch during this time.
• When within range of the applicable transmitter, this watch can receive either the
U.S. (Fort Collins, Colorado) or Japanese (Fukushima or Fukuoka/Saga) time
calibration signal. The signal the watch will attempt to pick up depends on its current
Home City code setting as shown below.

• Under good reception conditions, signal reception is possible within a radius of
about 2,000 miles (3,000 kilometers) from the Fort Collins transmitter.
• At distances further than about 600 miles (1,000 kilometers) from the Fort Collins
transmitter, signal reception may not be possible during certain times of year or
times of day. Radio interferance may also cause problems with reception.
• At distances further than about 500 kilometers from the Fukushima and Fukuoka/
Saga transmitter, signal reception may not be possible during certain times of year
or times of day. Radio interferance may also cause problems with reception.
• See the information under “Signal Reception Troubleshooting” if you experience
problems with time calibration signal reception.
About Auto Receive
When auto receive is turned on, the watch automatically starts to receive the time
calibration signal when the time in the Timekeeping Mode reaches 0:00 a.m., 1:00
a.m., 2:00 a.m., 3:00 a.m., and 4:00 a.m. each day (calibration times). The watch will
also perform an additional auto receive at 5:00 a.m. if none of the regularly scheduled
auto receive operations are successful.
Note
• Auto receive is performed only if the watch is in the Timekeeping Mode or World
Time Mode when one of the calibration times is reached. It is not performed if a
calibration time is reached while an alarm is sounding, or while you are configuring
settings (while settings are flashing on the display).
• Auto receipt of the calibration signal is designed to be performed early in the
morning, while you sleep (provided that the Timekeeping Mode time is set correctly).
Before going to bed for the night, remove the watch from your wrist, and put it in a
location where it can easily receive the signal.
• When auto receive is turned on, the watch receives the calibration signal for two to
six minutes everyday when the time in the Timekeeping Mode reaches each of the
five calibration times. Do not perform any button operation within six minutes before
or after any of the five calibration times. Doing so can interfere with correct
calibration.
• Remember that reception of the calibration signal depends on the time kept in the
digital display. Reception will be performed whenever the display shows one of the
five calibration times, regardless of whether or not the displayed time is actually the
correct time.
• When two, three, four, or five receptions are successful, the watch uses the data of
the last reception for calibration. When only one reception is successful, the watch
uses the data of the successful reception.
3. Use B and D to turn auto receive on (ON) or off (OFF).
4. Press A to exit the setting screen.
• To return to the Timekeeping Mode from the last signal screen, press D.

• The flashing charge indicator (
) at Level 3 tells you that battery power is very
low, and that exposure to bright light for charging is required as soon as possible.
• At Level 4, all functions are disabled and settings return to their initial factory
defaults. Functions are enabled once again after the rechargeable battery is
charged, but you need to set the time and date, after the battery reaches Level 3
(indicated by the flashing charge indicator (
)) from Level 4. You will not be able
to configure any of the other settings until the battery reaches Level 2 (no charge
indicator) after dropping to Level 4.
• The Home City reverts to TYO (Tokyo), which means that the watch is configured
to receive the Japanese time calibration signal, whenever battery power drops to
Level 4. If you are using the watch in North America, you will need to configure your
Home City code setting whenever battery power recovers after dropping to Level 4.
• Leaving the watch in direct sunlight or some other very strong light source can cause the
battery power indicator to temporarily show a reading that is higher than the actual
battery level. The correct battery power indicator should appear after a few minutes.
• If you use the light or alarms a number of times during a short period, the recover

• Storing the watch for long periods in an area where there is no light or wearing it in
such a way that it is blocked from exposure to light can cause rechargeable battery
power to run down. Make sure that the watch is normally exposed to bright light
whenever possible.
• Normally, the rechargeable battery should not need replacement, but after very long
use over a number of years, the rechargeable battery may lose its ability to achieve
a full charge. Should you notice problems with getting the rechargeable battery to a
full charge, contact your dealer or CASIO distributor about having it replaced.
• The rechargeable battery should be replaced with a CASIO-specified CTL1616
battery only. Other rechargeable batteries can cause damage to the watch.
• All data stored in memory is deleted, and the current time and all other settings
return to their initial factory defaults whenever battery power drops to Level 4 and
when you have the battery replaced.
• Turn on the watch’s Power Saving function and keep it in an area normally exposed
to bright light when storing it for long periods. This helps to keep the rechargeable
battery from going dead.

Daylight Saving Time (summer time) advances the time setting by one hour from
Standard Time. Remember that not all countries or even local areas use Daylight
Saving Time.
The time calibration signal transmitted from Fort Collins includes both Standard Time
and DST data. When the Auto DST setting is turned on, the watch switches between
Standard Time and DST (summer time) automatically in accordance with the Fort
Collins signal.
• The time calibration signals transmitted from Fukushima and Fukuoka/Saga do not
include summer time data.
• The default DST setting is Auto DST (A t ) whenever you select HNL, ANC,
LAX, DEN, CHI, NYC, TYO, SEL, or HKG as your Home City code.
• If you experience problems receiving the time calibration signal in your area, it is
probably best to switch between Standard Time and Daylight Saving Time (summer
time) manually.

Radio-controlled Atomic Timekeeping Precautions
• Strong electrostatic charge can result in the wrong time being set.
• Even when the watch is within the reception range of the transmitter, signal
reception will be impossible if the signal is blocked by mountains or other geological
formations between the watch and signal source.
• Signal reception is affected by weather, atmospheric conditions, and seasonal
changes.
• The time calibration signal bounces off the ionosphere. Because of this, such factors
as changes in the reflectivity of the ionosphere, as well as movement of the
ionosphere to higher altitudes due to seasonal atmospheric changes or the time of
day may change the reception range of the signal and make reception temporarily
impossible.
• Even if the time calibration signal is received properly, certain conditions can cause
the time setting to be off by up to one second.
• The current time setting in accordance with the time calibration signal takes priority
over any time settings you make manually.
• The watch is designed to automatically update the date and day of the week for the
period January 1, 2000 to December 31, 2099. Setting of the date by the time
calibration signal cannot be performed starting from January 1, 2100.
• This watch can receive signals that differentiate between leap years and non-leap
years.
• Though this watch is designed to receive both time data (hour, minutes, seconds)
and date data (year, month, day), certain signal conditions can limit reception to time
data only.
• Normally, the signal reception date shown by the last signal screen is the date data
included in the received time calibration signal. When only time data is received,
however, the last signal screen shows the date as kept in the Timekeeping Mode at
the time of signal reception.
• If you are in an area where proper time calibration signal reception is impossible, the
watch keeps time within ±15 seconds a month at normal temperature.
• If you have problems with proper time calibration signal reception or if the time
setting is wrong after signal reception, check your current city code, DST (summer
time), and auto receive settings. The following are the initial factory defaults for these
settings.

Operation Guide 2752
Timekeeping
• Resetting the seconds to 00 while the current count is in the range of 30 to 59
causes the minutes to be increased by 1. In the range of 00 to 29, the seconds are
reset to 00 without changing the minutes.
• The day of the week is automatically displayed in accordance with the date (year,
month, and day) settings.
• The year can be set in the range of 2000 to 2099.
• The watch’s built-in full automatic calendar makes allowances for different month
lengths and leap years. Once you set the date, there should be no reason to change
it except after you have the watch’s battery replaced or when battery power drops to
Level 4.
• The current time for all city codes in the Timekeeping Mode and World Time Mode is
calculated in accordance with the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) differential for each
city, based on your Home City time setting.
• GMT differential is calculated by this watch based on Universal Time Coordinated
(UTC*) data.
* UTC is the world-wide scientific standard of timekeeping. It is based upon carefully
maintained atomic (cesium) clocks that keep time accurately to within microseconds. Leap
seconds are added or subtracted as necessary to keep UTC in sync with the Earth’s rotation.
The reference point for UTC is Greenwich, England.
12-hour/24-hour Timekeeping Formats
The 12-hour/24-hour timekeeping format you select in the Timekeeping Mode is also
applied in all other modes.
• With the 12-hour format, the P (PM) indicator appears on the display for times in the
range of noon to 11:59 p.m. and no indicator appears for times in the range of
midnight to 11:59 a.m.
• With the 24-hour format, times are displayed in the range of 0:00 to 23:59, without
any indicator.
Illumination Precautions
• The electro-luminescent panel that provides illumination loses power after very long
use.
• Display illumination may be hard to see when viewed under direct sunlight.
• Illumination automatically turns off whenever an alarm sounds.
• The watch may emit an audible sound whenever the display is illuminated. This is
due to vibration of the EL panel used for illumination, and does not indicate
malfunction.
• Frequent use of illumination runs down the battery.
Auto light switch precautions
• Wearing the watch on the inside of your wrist, movement of your arm, or vibration of
your arm can cause frequent activation of the auto light switch and illumination of the
display. To avoid running down the battery, turn off the auto light switch whenever
engaging in activities that might cause frequent illumination of the display.
• Note that wearing the watch under your sleeve while the auto light switch is turned
on can cause frequent illumination of the display and can run down the battery.
More than 15 degrees
too high
• Illumination may not turn on if the face of the watch is
more than 15 degrees above or below parallel. Make
sure that the back of your hand is parallel to the ground.
• Illumination turns off in about one second, even if you
keep the watch pointed towards your face.
• Static electricity or magnetic force can interfere with
proper operation of the auto light switch. If illumination
does not turn on, try moving the watch back to the
starting position (parallel with the ground) and then tilt it
back towards you again. If this does not work, drop your
arm all the way down so it hangs at your side, and then
bring it back up again.
• Under certain conditions, illumination may not turn on until about one second after
you turn the face of the watch towards you. This does not necessarily indicate
malfunction of the auto light switch.
• You may notice a very faint clicking sound coming from the watch when it is shaken
back and forth. This sound is caused by mechanical operation of the auto light
switch, and does not indicate a problem with the watch.
