Bright Light
Solar cell
The electricity generated by the solar cell of the
watch is stored by a built-in battery. Leaving or
using the watch where it is not exposed to light
causes the battery to run down. Make sure the
watch is exposed to light as much as possible.
• When you are not wearing the watch on your
wrist, position the face so it is pointed at a
source of bright light.
• You should try to keep the watch outside of
your sleeve as much as possible. Charging is
reduced significantly if the face is only partially
covered.
• The watch continues to operate, even when it is not exposed to light.
Leaving the watch in the dark can cause the battery to run down, which will
result in some watch functions to be disabled. If the battery goes dead, you
will have to re-configure watch settings after recharging. To ensure normal
watch operation, be sure to keep it exposed to light as much as possible.

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 receives the time calibration signal automatically
up to six times a day. When any auto receive is successful, the remaining
auto receive operations are not performed. For more information, see “About
Auto Receive”.
• Manual Receive
Manual receive lets you start a time calibration receive operation 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. This watch is designed to receive a time calibration signal late at
night. Because of this, you should place the watch near a window as shown
in the illustration when you take it off at night. Make sure there are no metal
objects nearby.

• 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.
• See the information under “Signal Reception Troubleshooting” if you
experience problems with time calibration signal reception.
About Auto Receive
The watch receives the time calibration signal automatically up to six times a

Note
• When a calibration time is reached, the watch will receive the calibration
signal only if it is in either the Timekeeping Mode or World Time Mode.
Reception is not performed if a calibration time is reached while you are
configuring settings.
• Auto receive 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 receive the signal easily.
• The watch receives the calibration signal for two to seven minutes everyday
when the time in the Timekeeping Mode reaches a calibration time. Do not
perform any button operation within seven minutes before or after the
calibration times. Doing so can interfere with correct calibration.
• Remember that reception of the calibration signal depends on the current
time in the Timekeeping Mode. The receive operation will be performed
whenever the display shows any one of the calibration times, regardless of
whether or not the displayed time actually is the correct time.
On/Off status
1. In the Timekeeping Mode, press D to display
the last successful receive time and date
screen.
2. Hold down A until the current auto receive
setting (ON or OFF) starts to flash. This is the
setting screen.
• Note that the setting screen will not appear
if the currently selected Home City is one
that does not support time calibration
reception.
3. Press D to toggle auto receive on (ON) and
off (OFF).
4. Press A to exit the setting screen.
• For information about city codes that support
signal receive, see “To specify your Home City”.

About the Signal Strength Indicator
Press D to view the last successful receive time
and date. Press D again to return to the
previous screen.
The signal strength indicator shows the strength of the calibration signal
being received. For best reception, be sure to keep the watch in a location
where signal strength is strongest. The signal strength indicator is displayed
while an auto or manual receive operation is in progress.

Weak
(Level 1)
Strong
(Level 3)
• Even in an area where signal strength is strong, it takes about 10 seconds
for signal reception to stabilize enough for the signal strength indicator to
indicate signal strength.
• Use the signal strength indicator as a guide for checking signal strength
and for finding the best location for the watch during signal receive
operations.
• Following reception of the time calibration signal and calibration of the
watch’s time setting, the Level 3 signal strength indicator will remain on the
display in all modes. The Level 3 signal strength indicator will not be
displayed if signal reception was unsuccessful or after you adjust the
current time setting manually.
• The Level 3 signal strength indicator is displayed only when the watch is
able to receive both time and date data successfully. It does not appear
when only time data is received.
• The Level 3 signal strength indicator indicates that at least one of the auto
calibration signal receive operations was successful. Note, however, that
the Level 3 signal strength indicator disappears from the display each day
when the first auto receive operation of the day is performed.

Power Supply
This watch is equipped with a solar cell and a special rechargeable battery
(secondary battery) that is charged by the electrical power produced by the
solar cell. The illustration shown below shows how you should position the
watch for charging.
Example: Orient the watch so its face is
pointing at a light source.
• The illustration shows how to position a
watch with a resin band.
• Note that charging efficiency drops when
any part of the solar cell is blocked by
clothing, etc.
• You should try to keep the watch outside
of your sleeve as much as possible.
Charging is reduced significantly if the
face is covered only partially.

All functions disabled.
• The flashing LOW 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 5, all functions are disabled and settings return to their initial
factory defaults. Once the battery reaches Level 2 after falling to Level 5,
reconfigure the current time, date, and other settings.
• The watch’s Home City code setting will change automatically to TYO
(Tokyo) whenever the battery drops to Level 5. With this Home City code
setting, the watch is configured to receive the time calibration signals of
Japan. If you are using the watch in North America or Europe, or China you
will need to change the Home City code setting to match your location
whenever the battery drops to Level 5.
• Display indicators reappear as soon as the battery is charged from Level 5
to Level 2.
• Leaving the watch exposed to direct sunlight or some other very strong light
source can cause the battery power indicator to show a reading temporarily
that is higher than the actual battery level. The correct battery level should
be indicated after a few minutes.
ll
Warning!
• Always make sure you are in a safe place whenever you are reading
the display of the watch using the auto light switch. Be especially
careful when running or engaged in any other activity that can result
in accident or injury. Also take care that sudden illumination by the
auto light switch does not startle or distract others around you.
• When you are wearing the watch, make sure that its auto light switch
is turned off before riding a bicycle or operating a motorcycle or any
other motor vehicle. Sudden and unintended operation of the auto
light switch can create a distraction, which can result in a traffic
accident and serious personal injury.

• The above operation turns on illumination
regardless of the current auto light switch
setting.
• 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. Be sure that the watch is exposed
to bright light whenever possible.
• This watch uses a special rechargeable battery to store power produced by
the solar cell, so regular battery replacement is not required. However, after
very long use, the rechargeable battery may lose its ability to achieve a full
charge. If you experience problems getting the special rechargeable battery
to charge fully, contact your dealer or CASIO distributor about having it
replaced.
• Never try to remove or replace the watch’s special battery yourself. Use of
the wrong type of battery can damage 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 5 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.
The time calibration signals transmitted from Mainflingen (Germany), Anthorn
(England), or Fort Collins (the United States) include 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 signals.
• Though the time calibration signal transmitted by the Fukushima and
Fukuoka/Saga, Japan transmitters include summer time data, summer time
currently is not implemented in Japan (as of 2007).

Radio-controlled Atomic Timekeeping Precautions
• Strong electrostatic charge can result in the wrong time being set.
• 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 update the date and day of the week
automatically 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.
• 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 Home City setting reverts to the initial default of TYO (Tokyo)
whenever the battery power level drops to Level 5 or when you have the
rechargeable battery replaced. If this happens, change the Home City to
the setting you want.
Transmitters
The time calibration signal received by this watch depends on the currently
selected Home City code.
• When a U.S. time zone is selected, the watch receives the time calibration
signal transmitted from the United States (Fort Collins).
• When a Japanese time zone is selected, the watch receives the time
calibration signal transmitted from Japan (Fukushima and Fukuoka/Saga).
• When a European time zone is selected, the watch receives the time
calibration signals transmitted from Germany (Mainflingen) and England
(Anthorn).
• When a China time zone is selected, the watch receives the time calibration
signals transmitted from China (Shangqiu City).
• When your Home City is LIS, LON, MAD, PAR, ROM, BER, STO, ATH,
MOW (which can receive both the Anthorn and Mainflingen signals), the
watch first tries to pick up the signal it last successfully received. If that fails,
it tries the other signal. For the first receive after you select your Home City,
the watch tries the nearest signal first (Anthorn for LIS, LON, Mainflingen
for MAD, PAR, ROM, BER, STO, ATH, and MOW).
Auto Return Features
• If you leave a screen with flashing digits on the display for two or three
minutes without performing any operation, the watch exits the setting
screen automatically.
Scrolling
The B and D buttons are used in various modes and setting screens to
scroll through data on the display. In most cases, holding down these buttons
during a scroll operation scrolls at high speed.
Initial Screens
When you enter the Rally Mode, Recall Mode, World Time Mode, or Alarm
Mode, the data you were viewing when you last exited the mode appears first.
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 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.
• The current time for all city codes in the Timekeeping Mode and World Time
Mode is calculated in accordance with the Coordinated Universal Time
(UTC) for each city, based on your Home City time setting.
World Time
• The seconds count of the World Time is synchronized with the seconds
count of the Timekeeping Mode.
Illumination Precautions
• The electro-luminescent panel that provides illumination loses power after
very long use.
• Illumination may be hard to see when viewed under direct sunlight.
• 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.
• Illumination turns off automatically whenever an alarm sounds.
• Frequent use of illumination runs down the battery.

Operation Guide 3150
Auto light switch precautions
• Avoid wearing the watch on the inside of your wrist. Doing so causes the
auto light switch to operate when it is not needed, which shortens battery
life. If you want to wear the watch on the inside of your wrist, turn off the
auto light switch feature.
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 after a preset amount of
time (1.5 or 3 seconds), 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 toward
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.
