My first suggestion would be to go to click support, then watches, then manuals, type in your module # and download a pdf of the watch. If you set the watch when you first purchased (or rec'd as a gift) then this should be enough. After 17 yrs of changing batteries I set many a watches, but as strange as it may sound sometimes allowing a child to make an attempt is oddly successful. The age group of 9 to 14 is fascinated with mechanical things and are usually able to just play with it for a little while and be successful.

SOURCE: I had my battery replaced

There are two internal springs that contact the back cover of the watch through an insulator. The alarm nor chime will work if they were not put into their proper locations or were omitted during reassembly.

SOURCE: what watch battery do i need?

If you are asking for that, it means you want to replace battery yourself, and if you do, you will have to open your watch anyway. So, open it, take the battery out and memorise all the writings on the battery. This is the type of battery you need.
Do not forget to rate, please.
If I was wrong with my guess, then submit all the writings on your watch caseback and dial, please....and do not rate yet.

Battery replacement for G Shock AWG-M100

Sounds like someone has replaced the rechargeable cell with a regular silver oxide of the same dimensions. Normally this doesn't work as the rechargeable cells have a part of the connector welded to them and normal cells don't. If you can source the rechargeable cell they are relatively easy to fit you just have to make sure the connector on the cell goes into the righ tplace on the watch.

G shock light when pressed gives a untimely blink like the bulb is about to blow

I do not think it will blow., glow in the dark maybe but certainly not blow out. Pressing the button too often depletes the battery, no big problem for a solar powered watch, but if you are afraid of what might happen avoid it.

Tag kirium f1 crown does not work, light does not come on for 6 seconds, also buttons do not work

Is the digital display blinking? If it is, it would mean that the battery is weak and thus, the backlight won't work.

Screen goes blank and it says chg in small letters on the right lower side

Actually, "chg" means "change" in this case. Since this is a solar watch, it is not necessary to change the battery. I let my watch sit in the dark for a few months and I came back to the same screen when I dug it out of a drawer. Simply allow the solar cells to get some light to recharge. I left the watch under a lamp overnight because I needed a stopwatch in the morning, and it was charged by the time I woke up. Also, this watch has a power saver function you can turn on and off. If the watch is left in the dark for about an hour, the screen will turn off but the normal functions will continue in order to save power..

My Casio tough solar watch refuses to charge. it is flashing chg only but will not charge with sun light. what should i do.

Your CASIO needs CAPACITOR replacement. Capacitor is the cell accumulating energy from any source of light. Go to your closest watch repair shop and ask to fix it. You do not need to visit any particular CASIO dealer. All capacitors/batteries can be exchanged at any watch repair shop. Rate me, plz.

Battery problems

If your watch is blacking out when the light is used, this is the first sign for battery replacement as light feature consumes more power than all watch mechanics together. Uderpowered battery can be the reason why the battery gauge do not show any bars.
My advice is to change battery first.
If the watch will have the same problem after battery replacement, then you will need watch repairers advise as it will be clear that the watch is having mechanical or electronic fault and in this case only watchmaker would be able to deal with it.
