Dead Watch - Citizen Eco-Drive Skyhawk Titanium

Watch was left with no access to light! Instructions indicate the watch will "recharge" if left under light source for some number of hours. The indication that the watch is 'recharged" will be dark in the panes on either side of the set time cal dial [positions 11, 12 and 1 respectively.
Any clues to get this recharging with ability to set and begin use?
Thanks, George Hosle

You need to keep the watch in sunlight for about 3 to 4 hours once this done you . CAUTION WHEN RECHARGING
The watch will be damaged during recharging if it
gets too hot (about 60C/140F or more). Avoid
recharging at high temperatures and check if it works .....


Good luck..

Watch taking 14 hours to charg


I made the mistake of purchasing a Citizen automatic rechargeable watch that is supposed to recharge with any light source. Not true.
It must be in daylight or else it will stop working.
It was left on the window sill for 24hours before any signs of life!

Being an Eco drive watch it needs light to make it work. Place under a light source for a few hours an see if this works. If not it will need a new power cell, which is like a rechargeable battery for them. It will need to be purchased from citizen or suitable watch maker

My Casio Pathfinder 3070 (B) suddenly went blank and all I see now is a tiny "C" flashing. I put my watch under a light source for several hours but still the same. Can someone help me?


The flashing C indicates the battery level is at 4. (1 is the ideal, and 5 is dead) The manual says that it could take 46 hours under fluorescent light to charge to the next fully functional level. 1-5 hours in varying degrees of sunlight.
My watch was blank and flashing C this morning, but has come back with no help from me, except for random button pushing.

Cannot set time on my new Adidas Response ADP6005 watch. manual is useless in this regard


Just talked to Adidas. Manual is wrong on this watch type. To change time: press top-left button "set/light" and hold till "light off" appears. Then, hit bottom-left button "mode," toggling until you reach the hours/minutes/etc. Use top-right and bottom-right buttons to change numbers as needed. Hit top-left "set/light" button when finished.

I put a new battery in a citizen navihawk thunderbird watch. How do i progam it now?


an Eco-drive does not have a battery, it has a rechargeable power cell that is charged by light through the face of the watch. If you have replaced this cell you may have damaged the watch. If the cell was not soldered in, replace it and put it under a fluorescent light for a little while (several hours) and it should start working.

Mtg 900 comes up charge and says recover. What do i need to do? I tried charging it under a lamp for several hours but that does not last long.


I have a watch which is solar type and the instructions say that several hours of sunlight will charge the battery but lamps need much longer (1 -2 days!), my watch now is left in a drawer.

If you haven't got instructions for your watch, to check what Casio recommend, you can get them on the net.

You can get instructions from the Casio web site.

Go to the casio web site "casio.com".

Select "support" and the "manuals",

Select "watch manual archive"

Read the number of the back of your watch and enter it into the search box

Hello I've had my citizen Eco drive skyhawk watch for at least ten years now. I remember reading in my manual years ago that a battery needed to be replaced even though it's solar powered. My watch went...


There could be other issues beside the battery. My best solution would be to take back to where you bought the watch, or any other authorized Citizen watch retailer for repair.

I have an echo drive watch that worrks for 6 years and stop working.one of the watch selers told me to pull out the main pin and leave the wach under the desktop light for 12 hour,but it dosent work.thanks...


I don't know which calibre number you have but if you go to http://www.citizenwatch.com/COA/English/rechargeguideresults.asp?caliber=e810 you will see the recharge times for an E810 (which are probably very similar) and this model needs 43 hours to recharge under a lamp.

This would account for your lack of success.

(If you follw the link and go back a step, you should be able to enter you calibre number and see the instructions for your watch.)

If you still have no success, it could be that the battery needs replacement. A discussion with the makers' service center should help on this.

Watch has stopped running. Citizen eco drive B020-H21408. Can't seem to recharge.


If you have followed the manufacturers instructions on recharging, I suggest you return it to Citizen. They will get it running in no time for you.

I have a Citizen Skyhawk and this is what I did to get my watch going after I tried all the recharging instructions they provided. Go to their website and tell them what you want to do and they will give you instructions. Go here: http://www.citizenwatch.com/ Pick your country and language - select technical support (make sure you did all they told you to do first) - eventually you will find a contact link.

The trouble with mine is I have a cell telephone ... who needs a watch these days??? My wife has a eco drive - she wears it 24/7 and has not had a problem with it in more than 10 years.

I really love my Titanium Skyhawk ... It is fun to play with and beautiful to look at. I just never wear it.

I hope this helps and thanks for your visit today.
