You have to ground the battery. Re-open the watch and look at the movement, there should be a "AC" or a "+" Take a pair of tweezers and put one tong on the + side of the battery and the other tong on the "AC" or "+" leave ther for 3-4 seconds.That should do the trick. If not working still, let me know. I will assist you further. Good luck!!

Why does my Wave Ceptor WVA-105H work sporadically after getting wet?


Try a new battery. When water got in there it may have shorted the battery and drained it. It may work for a short time and then die. Also put the watch on you car dashboard in the sun to bake it instead of the oven unless you have an electric oven. For electric oven use a thermometer to get temp of 140 F then turn the oven off and put the watch in for an hour.

I've removed the back of my casio db-36 watch, but I can't figure out how to remove the battery. The watch went blank last week.


There is a clip over the battery and then down on one side. You need something tiny and sharp... like a needle. You can insert the needle into the clip between the battery and the outside edge of the clip and gently pry the clip out and away from the battery.

Casio g-shock protection model blank face after new battery installed by a jeweler


What kind of battery did they put in it?? G shocks are powered by a rechargeable solar battery!!! Should not have been replaced unless it was the same type of battery. I would be going back to jeweler and asking them to send your watch to Casio and they pay for the new solar battery. Let me know what happens.

Casio 1170 ATC-1200 watch needs to have batteries changed


I'll post in case somebody still needs this. This is the general procedure to switch the ATC 1200 from meters to feet. You can also switch the ATC 1200 (1170) from C to F. This is very helpful if you change the batteries and the watch gets reset to meters.

Also note, when you pull out the two batteries, you may not get the watch to come up. This is because of a race condition when the watch gets power. To fix this, look for the AC mark on the inside of the watch. Under this marking, in a little space to the left, are two copper pads. Short this out with a small screw driver to get the watch to ground zero.

To fix the Metric measurements:

1. Go to the home screen on the watch. This is when the the 3 letter abbr for the day is at the top. Also, if you cycle the mode button, it is the screen where the final beep is "high."

2. Then press the "memory" button, which will take the home display to the data screen. This shows current time, pressure and temperature.

3. Hold down the adjust button, until the set screen comes up.

4. Tab the mode/select button on the watch until you get a flashing C. Then press the memory button to toggle to F.

You can adjust all the measurements from this screen.

I have a casio a158w alarm chrono, the screen went blank, opening up the back, is the battery the big round thing in the middle that seems to be stuck in place??? it takes up most of the inner works of the...


Yes, the big, round thing in the middle is the battery. To get it out you need to unclip or unscrew the contact covering it. When the contact is off you will see the battery number written on battery - buy exactly the same one and replace. After replacement you will need to set the watch manually.

Change the battery. This happened with mine along with the battery needing charging more frequently. In my opinion, Casio's assertions that you won't need to change the battery is pretty much of a joke. My jewler concurred.

After changing the battery I can now press the light switch button and the watch works normally.

On the solar charge watches, they use a chargeable Lithium battery. It is NOT an off the shelf regular battery! It is best to send the watch to the factory service rep in your area for a battery change.

In many of these models the battery is using solder contacts to the circuit board. The person changing the battery will require the original spec battery, and be equiped to do surface type soldering.

When working on this watch, the factory service will change the seals and do a pressure water resistance test. The regular corner watch service store is not equiped to do this type of testing.

Normaly, the battery in solar watches should last more than 5 years. Some are going past 10 years!
