SF-9700 manual

← SF-9700

Introduction

Congratulations on your purchase of the CASIO SF-9700 (referred to as SF Unit in this manual). For best results and to ensure that you are able to employ the features and functions of your SF Unit to their fullest, carefully read this manual and keep it on hand for future reference.

Before Beginning Operation

Make back up copies of important data!

Your SF Unit employs electronic memory, which makes it possible to storearge volumes of data and to recall stored data quickly and easily. Data is retained as long as power is supplied by the batteries. This means that should batteries go dead, or if you make a mistake while replacing batteries, the data stored in memory may be damaged or lost entirely. Data contents can also be damaged or lost due to strong external static electrical charge, strong impact, or extremes in temperature and humidity.
All of this means that you should make back up copies of important data on an optional IC card or in a notebook in case any of the above conditions occur.

Data Error

Whenever you switch on the power of the SF Unit, it performs a self check to make sure that everything is in order before beginning operation. if the SF Unit detects a problem with or a loss of data, it displays the following message.

DATA ERROR!

CONSULT YOUR OWNER'S MANUAL

UNDER "DATA ERROR"

Data which is damaged or lost cannot be recovered. Data errors are generally caused by one of the following problems.
Data which is damaged or lost cannot be recovered. Data errors are generally caused by one of the following problems.

  1. interruption of battery power (see page 8).
  2. Severe static electrical charge, impact, change in temperature, or change in humidity (see page 5).
  3. Improper handling of IC card (see page 192).
  4. Hardware problem.

After the Data Error display appears, you will not be able to input or edit data, though you will be able to recall data (after pressing the key to clear the display). Following the Data Err0r display, follow the instructions outlined below.

In the case of 1, 2, or 3…

You must perform the RESET operation (page 245) to clear the memory and return to normal operation. Before doing so, you may want to recall important data and write it down (if you don‘t already have a copy on an IC card or paper). Then you can reinput the data after the memory is cleared.

In the case of 4…

Consult with your nearest CASIO dealer.
Whenever one of the following messages appear on the display, you should take the action described below.

MAIN BATTERIES GETTING WEAK!

PLEASE REPLACE THEM

ACTION:

Pressing or any mode key clears the message and lets you continue operation, but the above message will probably appear again. Replace the main power supply batteries as soon as possible.

BACK-UP BATTERY GETTING WEAK!

PLEASE REPLACE IT!

ACTION:

Pressing or any mode key clears the message and lets you continue operation. Replace the back-up power supply battery as soon as possible.

BATTERIES GETTING WEAK!

PLEASE REPLACE BACK-UP BATTERY

FIRST AND THEN MAIN BATTERIES!

ACTION:

None of the keyboard keys are active except . Switch power off and immediately replace the back-up power supply battery. After replacing the back-up battery, you should then replace the main power supply batteries.

Important

Remember that lC cards also use batteries. if you are using an lC
card, its low battery message will appear on the display once its battery power drops below a certain level. Follow the instructions described
in the section, “Replacing the lC card battery” in this manual to change its battery.

Memory Overflow Message

The memory overflow message appears on the display when the data you are trying to store exceeds memory capacity.

MEMORY FULL!

When this happens, perform the two foilowing operations.

  • Press or to display the data you are trying to input, and reduce the number of characters. If the memory overflow message appears again when you try to store the data, try the next operation below.
  • Press to display the input prompt for the mode you are in (“NAME ?”, “MEMO ?”, “DESCRIPTION ?”). Next, either delete data items you no longer need to make room for the new data, or use an optional RAM card to expand memory capacity.

Precautions

Note the following important precautions to ensure that you get the most out of your SF Unit.

  • Never try to take your SF Unit apart.
  • Avoid strong impact and sudden temperature changes.
  • At very low temperatures, the display response time may slow down or the display may fail completely. This is temporary, and correct operation should return at normal temperature.
  • When the message “MAIN BATTERIES GETTING WEAK! PLEASE REPLACE THEM!” appears on the display, switch power off and replace batteries.
  • To avoid serious damage caused by leaking batteries, replace batteries once every two years, regardless of how much you use the SF Unit.
  • Never use thinner, benzine or other volatile agents to clean the exterior of the SF Unit. Instead, wipe it off with a soft cloth dampened in a solution of water and a mild, neutral detergent. Wring the cloth out until it is almost dry.
  • If the SF Unit is exposed to strong static electrical charges, the display may dim or the SF Unit may lock up. To correct this situation, switch power off, and then remove and then replace the main power supply batteries.
  • Do not press the keys of the SF Unit with a pen, pencil or other sharp

object.

  • The SF Unit may cause interference with radio or television

reception. Keep it away from such appiiances when in use.

About the Power Supply

You should stop whatever operation you are performing and replace batteries as soon as one of the weak battery messages shown on pages 3 and 4 appears on the display. Note that the SF Unit has two separate power supplies.

Main Power Supply

The main power supply uses two CR-2032 lithium batteries. These batteries power keyboard operations, the display and alarm tones. They also supply power required when the SF Unit is switched off, and-they provide power to the memory while you are replacing the memory backup battery. The following shows the normal service life of the main power supply batteries under two different test conditions.

Battery Life Conditions
75 hours:
  • Operating temperature of 20°C
  • Repeated cycle of 1-minute data input into Telephone Directory followed by 10-minute display.
100 hours:
  • Operating temperature of 20°C
  • Continuous display in Telephone Directory.

You shouid repiace the memory backup battery at least once every 5 years, regardless of whether or not the weak battery message appears during that time.

If you do not use your SF Unit for a long time…

  • Be sure to switch the SF Unit on at least once a month to check the display for a weak battery message.
  • If a weak battery message appears (pages 3 and 4) when you switch power on, replace batteries as soon as possible.
  • If the SF Unit does not respond when you switch power on, replace main power supply batteries as soon as posible.

lmportant

  • All data stored in memory is lost if both the main power supply batteries and the memory backup battery are dead, or if you remove all batteries from the SF Unit.
  • If it is necessary to replace all batteries, replace the memory backup battery first, and then replace the main power supply batteries.

Precautions

Incorrectly using batteries can cause them to burst or leak, possibly damaging the interios of the SF Unit. Note the following precautions:

  • Be sure that the positive (+) and negative poles of each battery are facing in the proper direction.
  • Never mix batteries of different types.
  • Never mix old batteries and new ones.
  • Never leave dead batteries in the battery compartment.
  • Remove the batteries if you do not plan to use SF Unit for long periods.
  • Replace the batteries at least once every two years, no matter how much SF Unit is used during that period.
  • Never try to recharge the batteries supplied with the unit.
  • Do not expose batteries to direct heat, let them become shorted or try to take them apart.

Keep batteries out of the reach of small children. If swallowed, consult a physician immediately.

To replace the main power supply batteries

Before replacing the main battery, note the following precautions:

  • Do not remove the memory backup battery from the SF Unit while main batteries are removed.
  • All memory contents are erased by sliding power switch to ON position (upwards) white main batteries are removed, and main battery hoider cannot be replaced.
  • Check to make sure that power switch is in “OFF” position (downwards) before loading main batteries.
  • Be sure to replace both batteries at the same time, and do not use an old battery with a new one.
