Tip & How-To about Watches

LOST SOUND AFTER BATTERY REPLACEMENT.

If you experience no sound (alarm) from your watch after battery replacement, that means the coil spring fell out of watch while the battery has been replaced. Coil spring is transmitting vibrations from watch movement to the sound membrane at the back cover of watch, and if it is lost, there is no physical body to transmit signal, thus no sound. Coil spring itself is quite tiny and can be easily lost without even noticing it, mostly because it is not soldered to the watch movement or sound membrane and as soon as the opened watch is turned over, the coil spring fells out. If you are not able to find the coil spring in/around the place where the battery change took place, there is no other solution but to visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask to fit new one. In case if you are lucky enough to find the coil spring, fit it back in to appropriate hole in watch movement inserting out-bent end into movement. In most watches coil spring holes are marked: C.SPRING/COIL SPRING/ C.S or similar. Hope it helps.

Just change the battery on my Nike Anvil WC0020 watch and the alarm won't sound for the timer as well as the two alarm settings.


If you changed battery yourself, you've lost the tiny spring without noticing it. Carefully check around the place where you changed the battery. The spring itself is very, very tiny, so, be as concentrated as much as you can. That spring (coilspring named by watchmakers) transmits the signal from watch movement to the watch back cover where the sound membrane is located. In case if you find it, open the watch and insert that spring with the bent out end first in to the desired hole in watch movement (should be named COIL SPRING). After that re-assemble watch and the sound should work.

Can't remember where the little spring go in the g-shock 300


The used of the spring of your watch is for the speaker connection of the back cover of your watch. Your watch is still working even without the spring but no sound of alarm or whatever sound feature.Just go to watch service center im sure they have spear for the spring if not they can make spring from the watch spring bars.


Hope it may help you;

I had the battery in my Casio G Shock DW 6800 replaced. Since then none of the beeps or alarms have worked. Is there a reset button he didn't press?


There is a reset button inside your watch, but I don't think that is the problem. Most likely, there is a spring that makes contact to the watch and the back of your watch case, and it fell out by the person replacing your battery. I would definitely go back to the place where you had the battery installed, and have them take care of the problem buy ordering you a new spring or have them pay for you to send it to Casio.
