The backlight uses an EL (electroluminescent) panel that causes the entire
display to glow for easy reading in the dark.
The watch’s auto light switch automatically
turns on the backlight when you angle the
watch towards your face.
• The auto light switch must be turned on
(indicated by the auto light switch on
indicator) for it to operate.
• See “Backlight Precautions” for other
important information about using the
backlight.
To turn on the backlight manually
In any mode, press L to illuminate the display for about two seconds.
• The above operation turns on the backlight regardless of the current
auto light switch setting.
About the Auto Light Switch
Turning on the auto light switch causes the backlight to turn on whenever
you position your wrist as described below in any mode. Note that this
watch features a “Full Auto EL Light,” so the auto light switch operates
only when available light is below a certain level. It does not turn on the
backlight under bright light.
• Be sure to wear the watch on the outside of your left wrist while using
the auto light switch.

• The auto light switch on indicator (
modes while the auto light switch is turned on.
• Frequent use of the auto light switch greatly reduces the charge of the
rechargeable battery. If you use the auto light switch often, be sure to
leave the watch where it is exposed to sunlight during the daytime so it
can recharge the rechargeable battery. 10 minutes exposure to
sunlight provides enough of a charge for about 10 to 20 auto light
switch operations.
Battery
This watch is equipped with a solar cell and a 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.
• Note that charging efficiency
drops when any part of the solar
cell is blocked by clothing, etc.
• The illustration shows how to
position a watch with a resin band.
Solar cell
Important!
• 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 normally exposed to bright light whenever possible.
• This watch employs a solar cell that converts light into electricity, which
charges a built-in rechargeable battery. 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 the rechargeable battery replaced.
• The rechargeable battery should be replaced with a CASIO-specified
ML-2016 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 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.
Battery Power Indicator
The battery power indicator on the display shows you the current status
of the rechargeable battery’s power.

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 surprise or distract
others around you.
• When you are wearing the watch, make sure that its auto light
switch is turned off before riding on 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.

• At Level 4, the display is disabled but timekeeping and other functions
continue to operate internally. Pressing any button causes the
Timekeeping Mode screen to appear for two or three minutes.
• At Level 5, all functions are disabled. Functions are enabled once again
after the rechargeable battery is charged, but anything previously stored in
memory is lost. Because of this, you must set the current time and alarms,
and re-input Data Bank records after the rechargeable battery is charged.
• 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 actually higher than the battery level. The correct
battery power indicator should appear after a few minutes.
• Frequent backlight and alarm operations over a short period put a
heavy load on the battery, which can cause the battery power indicator
to flash, indicating that the backlight and alarm are disabled. Normal
operations should return after the battery recovers from the overload
condition. The above condition can occur after about consecutive 200
backlight operations or about 360 alarm operations.

Reference
This section contains more detailed and technical information about
watch operation. It also contains important precautions and notes about
the various features and functions of this watch.
Auto Display
Auto Display is a demonstration feature that continually changes the
contents of the digital display. Note that you cannot use any of the
watch’s other functions while Auto Display is operating.
• 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 2039.
• The watch’s built-in full automatic calendar automatically makes
allowances for different month lengths and leap years. Once you set
the date, there should be no reason to change it except when battery
power drops to Level 5.
12-hour/24-hour Timekeeping Formats
The 12-hour/24-hour timekeeping format you select in the Timekeeping
Mode is also applied in all modes.
• With the 12-hour format, the P (PM) indicator appears to the left of the
hour digits for times in the range of noon to 11:59 p.m. and the A (AM)
indicator appears to the left of the hour digits 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, with 24 indicator.
World Time
• GMT differential is calculated by this watch based on Universal Time
Coordinated (UTC) data.
• The seconds count of the World Time is synchronized with the
seconds count of the Timekeeping Mode.
Backlight Precautions
• The electro-luminescent panel that provides illumination loses power
after very long use.
• The illumination provided by the backlight 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.
• The backlight automatically turns off whenever an alarm sounds.
• The backlight remains lit for about two seconds from the point you
press the button, even if it is already lit when you press the button. If
you keep the button depressed for two seconds or more, the backlight
automatically turns off.
Auto light switch precautions
• Wearing the watch on the inside of your wrist and movement or
vibration of your arm can cause the auto light switch to activate and
illuminate 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.
More than 15 degrees
too high
• The backlight may not light 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.
• The backlight turns off in about two
seconds, even if you keep the watch pointed
towards your face.
To turn off Auto Display
Hold down A for about two seconds until the watch beeps.

USER’S GUIDE 2594
• Static electricity or magnetic force can interfere with proper operation
of the auto light switch. If the backlight does not light, 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, the backlight may not light until about one
second after you turn the face of the watch towards you. This does not
necessarily indicate malfunction of the backlight.
