    Small woman's watch. The back has a rubber-looking gasket or ring around the back. No matter how much pressure I apply, I cannot replace the back.

Change the battery


You need to remove the back of the watch to get to the battery. If the watch is a water proof watch then the back is screwed on. After removing the back take care not to damage the gasket.
If you cannot remove the back of the watch then take it to a watch repairer, they can replace the battery and it won't be expensive.

Replaced my battery but can't get the backing of the watch abck on.


For both the screw and snap backs, make sure the battery is exactly the same as was in the watch. Although they look the same, these batteries vary in thickness. With the battery installed, sight across the watch bottom to ensure the battery (or no other component) rises above the level of the watch case. Once all is level, replace the watch back (making sure the gasket is properly placed.

I have a pocket watch i bought in paris but the battery ranout and i cant get the back off to get the battery out. what should i do?


Hi Josh, I do apologize for the inconvenience.Please try the below steps which should be helpful for you to remove the back of the watch and also replace the battery.
  1. Flip over your pocket watch. Remove the back of your watch. The back of watches are either screwed on by four small Phillips head screws (unscrew them) or the watch has a press inserted back (slide a thin knife blade under the edge of the back of the watch and pry it off).
    (OR)
    Find the small groove on the back of the watch right above the hinge,place the tip of the screwdriver (the small kind used for the screws in glasses) into the groove and gently pry off the back of the watch.
  2. Remove the circular watch battery out of the back of the watch.
  3. Take the battery to any department store or watch store and purchase a new replacement battery.
  4. Insert the new battery into the back of the watch.
  5. Screw on or push on the back of the watch. Set the watch to the correct time.
The above should be of help for you to have the battery on the pocket watch replaced and have the watch working once again.Best wishes for your effort and thank you for your time and patience.

How do I replace the batteries on my Casio Pathfinder PAG40B-2V watch?


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • Choose a quiet, well-lit room where you can replace the battery in your Casio Pathfinder watch. Prepare a table, desk or other clean, flat surface where you can perform your watch repair. Put down a soft cloth or piece of craft felt to protect the face of your Casio Pathfinder watch from being scratched during the battery installation process.

  • 2

    Set your Casio Pathfinder watch face-down on the soft cloth or craft felt. Use an optical-sized Philips screwdriver to remove the four screws that secure the watch back to the body of the watch. Set the screws aside, but don't lift the watch back.

  • 3

    Slide the watch back off of the body of the watch very slowly. There are three important springs held underneath the watch back; it is essential to remove the watch back slowly to avoid losing them.

  • 4

    Lift the three springs out of your Casio Pathfinder watch using a small pair of metal tweezers. Take note of the length and placement of the springs as you remove them. Set the springs aside with the other disassembled watch components.

  • 5

    Take the black rubber protective disk out of your Casio Pathfinder to reveal an identically-shaped white plastic disk. Remove the white plastic disk and set it and the black rubber disk aside. Use your metal tweezers, if necessary, to lift out the rubber and plastic disks.

  • 6

    Release the battery strap that holds the battery in place in your Casio Pathfinder watch by pushing the battery strap latch to the left. Remove the old battery from your Casio Pathfinder using a pair of small plastic tweezers.

  • 7

    Pick up your replacement watch battery with the small plastic tweezers and insert it into the battery compartment of your Casio Pathfinder watch. Replace the battery strap and push it gently with the tip of your plastic tweezers to snap the latch in place.

  • 8

    Touch the "-" and "AC" terminals on your Casio Pathfinder watch with the tips of your metal tweezers for at least two seconds. This helps ensure that your watch will work properly once reassembled.

  • 9

    Put your Casio Pathfinder back together to complete the new battery installation. Start by replacing the white plastic disk, followed by the protective black rubber disk. Use your small metal tweezers to replace the small watch springs in their correct locations. Replace the back cover of your Casio Pathfinder, insert the four screws and tighten them with your optical-sized Philips screwdriver.


  • Best regards. Jewel

    How to open the back of Kenneth Cole KC3434 watch to change the battery?


    BASIC WATCH BATTERY CHANGE
    Get a replacement battery for your watch. Some watches have the battery information stamped on the back plate. If yours doesn't, you'll have to wait until you've removed the old battery to see what kind of replacement watch battery you'll need.
    Lay your watch face down on a non-scratching, non-skid surface. It may help to clamp the watch to the surface.
    Remove the back from the watch. You might be able to pry it off with your fingernail, but you'll probably need a stiff, thin tool like a knife or screwdriver. You can also buy watch repair kits, which have the perfect tools for the job. Check the watch back for a small notch to insert your tool, but not all watches have these.
    Remove the battery from the watch once the back is off. You might need to tip the watch over to let the battery fall out.
    Insert the new watch battery into the proper space, first double-checking its size against the old battery to make sure it will fit. Press lightly into place.
    Replace the back on your watch. Make sure you press firmly to get the back seated snugly.

    If this doesnt work, then take to a local jeweler/watchmaker who is equipped with the right tools to assist you.

    Best regards.

    I want to change out batteries


    Hello,
    1. Lay the watch upside down on top of a towel or cloth on a flat workspace. Use a small flat head screwdriver or blade to pry under the watch backing, then lift the backing from the watch. Slide the battery cover to the side to access and remove the battery.

    2.Take the battery to any electronics store to purchase a replacement. Bringing the old battery will ensure you install the correct type of battery in your Fossil watch.

    3. Replace the battery and the battery cover. Apply pressure to the backing until it "pops" back into the watch.

    Battery replacement


    Hello,

    do you mean you want to replace the battery for your watch?

    This isn't a difficult task to carry out. Simply get a small flat screw driver, use the screw driver to open the back cover of the watch, then you will see the battery of your watch. Remove the battery and replace with a new batter, cover back the watch and that's all.

    Note that you will apply force with the screw driver when you are trying to open the back cover of the watch.

    Good luck.

    How do I replace a battery on a kenneth cole watch and square fossil watch


    Open watch case back, then release the metal contact covering the battery. Memorize battery's polarity (+ up and - down), then take the battery out. Memorize the combination of letters and numbers on battery (should be something like: CR 3216 or similar). Make does not matter - Seiko is as good as Maxell, Panasonic2_bing.gif and other reputable makes. Buy new battery with identical combination of letters and numbers and put in your watch. Replace back contact, gasket and case back. Set your watch and enjoy. Rate me, please.
