Operation Guide 5130 (OC)
Congratulations upon your selection of this CASIO watch.
This watch does not have a city code that corresponds to the UTC offset of –3.5 hours. Because of
this, the radio-controlled atomic timekeeping function will not display the correct time for Newfoundland,
Canada.
Note that CASIO COMPUTER CO., LTD. assumes no responsibility for any damage or loss suffered by
you or any third party arising through the use of this product or its malfunction.
••When power drops to Level 3, all functions will be disabled but the watch will continue to keep time
internally for about one week. If you recharge the battery sufficiently during this period, the analog
hands will move automatically to the correct setting and regular timekeeping will resume. After one
week, all settings (including timekeeping) will be cleared. Recharging the battery will reset all settings
to their initial factory defaults.

Radio Controlled Atomic Timekeeping
This section explains how the watch updates its time settings when the city code selected as the Home
City is in Japan, North America, Europe, or China, and is one that supports time calibration signal
reception.
If your Home City Code setting is this:
The watch can receive the signal from
the transmitter located here:
LONDON (LON), PARIS (PAR), ATHENS (ATH)
Anthorn (England), Mainflingen (Germany)
HONG KONG (HKG)
Shangqiu City (China)
TOKYO (TYO)
Fukushima (Japan), Fukuoka/Saga (Japan)
Important!
••The areas covered by HONOLULU (HNL) and ANCHORAGE (ANC) are quite far from the calibration
signal transmitters, so certain conditions may cause reception problems.
••When HONOLULU (HNL) or HONG KONG (HKG) is selected as the Home City, only the time and date
are adjusted according to the time calibration signal. You need to switch manually between standard
time and daylight saving time (DST) if required. See “To configure Home City settings” for information
about how to do this.
Approximate Reception Ranges
The face of the watch is a solar cell that generates power from light. The generated power charges a
built-in rechargeable battery, which powers watch operations. The watch charges whenever it is exposed
to light.
UK and German Signals
Whenever you are not
wearing the watch, leave
it in a location where it is
exposed to light.
••Best charging
performance is achieved
by exposing the watch to
light that is as strong as
possible.
When wearing the watch, make
sure that its face is not blocked
from light by the sleeve of your
clothing.
••The watch may enter a sleep
state if its face is blocked by
your sleeve even only partially.
2,000 miles
(3,000 kilometers)
Important!
••Keep the watch in an area normally exposed to bright light when storing it for long periods. This helps
to ensure that power does not run down.
••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 power to run down. Make sure that the watch is exposed to
bright light whenever possible.
Power Levels
You can get an idea of the watch’s power level by observing the movement of
the x Second Hand.
••If the x Second Hand is moving normally at one-second intervals, power is
at Level 1.
••If the x Second Hand is moving at two-second intervals, power is at Level
2, which is quite low. Expose the watch to light as soon as possible so it
can charge.

••Even when the watch is within range of a transmitter, signal reception may be impossible due to the
effects of geographic contours, structures, weather, the time of year, the time of day, radio interference,
etc. The signal becomes weaker at distances of approximately 500 kilometers, which means that the
influence of the above conditions becomes even greater.
••Signal reception may not be possible at the distances noted below during certain times of the year or
day. Radio interference may also cause problems with reception.

••As of January 2010, China does not use Daylight Saving Time (DST). If China does go to the Daylight
Saving Time system in the future, some functions of this watch may no longer operate correctly.
••Using this watch in a country covered by a time calibration signal that is different from the countries it
supports may result in incorrect time indication due to local application of summer time, etc.

Troubleshooting
Hand Movement and Position
x Second Hand is moving at two second intervals.
■■The
■■All
the watch’s hands are stopped at 12 o’clock and none of the buttons work.
Power may be low. Expose the watch to light until the x Second Hand starts moving normally, at onesecond intervals.
■■The hands of the watch suddenly start moving at high speed, even when I do not perform any
operation.
This could be due to any one of the following causes. In all cases, the hand movement does not indicate
malfunction, and should stop shortly.
••The watch is recovering from a sleep state.
••The time setting is being adjusted following a successful auto time calibration signal receive operation.
■■The
current time setting changes after I set it manually.
You may have the watch configured for Auto Receive of the time calibration signal, which will cause the
time to be adjusted automatically according to your currently selected Home City. If this results in the
wrong time setting, check your Home City setting and correct it, if necessary.
■■The
current time setting is off by one hour.
Possible Cause
Remedy
Signal reception on a day for switching between
STD (standard time)/DST (daylight saving/summer
time) may have failed for some reason.
Perform the operation under “To get ready for a receive
operation”. The time setting will be adjusted automatically as
soon as signal reception is successful.
If you are unable to receive the time calibration signal,
change the STD (standard time)/DST (daylight saving/
summer time) setting manually.
■■Auto
Receive is not performed or I cannot perform Manual Receive.
Possible Cause
Remedy
Your Home City setting is wrong.
Check your Home City setting and correct it, if necessary.
There is not enough power for signal reception.
Expose the watch to light to charge it.
■■Signal
reception is being performed successfully, but the time and/or day is wrong.
Possible Cause
Remedy
Your Home City setting is wrong.

Charging
■■The
watch does not resume operation after I expose it to light.
This can happen after the power level drops to Level 3. Continue exposing the watch to light until the x
Second Hand starts moving normally (at one-second intervals).
x Second Hand starts to move at one-second intervals, but then suddenly returns to moving
■■The
at two-second intervals.
The watch probably is not sufficiently charged yet. Continue keeping it exposed to light.
Time Calibration Signal
The information in this section applies only when LONDON (LON), PARIS (PAR), ATHENS (ATH),
HONOLULU (HNL), ANCHORAGE (ANC), LOS ANGELES (LAX), DENVER (DEN), CHICAGO (CHI),
NEW YORK (NYC), HONG KONG (HKG), or TOKYO (TYO) is selected as the Home City. You need to
adjust the current time manually when any other city is selected as the Home City.

■■The
Possible Cause
Remedy
••You are wearing or moving the watch, or
performing a button operation during the signal
receive operation.
••The watch is in an area with poor reception
conditions.
Keep the watch in an area where reception conditions
are good while the signal receive operation is being
performed.
You are in an area where signal reception is not
possible for some reason.
See “Approximate Reception Ranges”.
The calibration signal is not being transmitted for
some reason.
••Check the website of the organization that maintains the
time calibration signal in your area for information about
its down times.
••Try again later.
