How do I change batteries on a M.Z. Berger AW 213 watch


I know it's been a while since you posted this question, but I just had to do this with mine after it was lost in a drawer for a few years, and I had no luck googling so I had to figure it out for myself.

First, you have to remove the band, but you only need to do this on one end, not both. I did this by twisting the watch body around while holding the cloth/leather portion of the band still, letting the elastic part twist around with the watch body. Then, just use a fingernail to pull on the ridges on one end of one of the pins that are holding the band on; both ends are spring-loaded, so it doesn't matter which. Twist the watch body back around, and you'll now be able to flip it over to expose the back.

Now, take a thin, strong blade (I used a butterknife) and pry off the back plate. There's a tab on the upper right edge of the back plate to make this much easier. Since it probably came off in the process, place the rubber sealant ring back around the edge of the backplate.

Once you have the back plate off, there's a thin metal piece covering the battery that's held on with one screw. Remove that with an eyeglass screwdriver or any other similarly-sized Phillips-head screwdriver. There's just a small tab holding the metal piece in place on the other side, so just flip the metal piece up a bit and pull it out. You can now take the battery (a CR2016 3-volt watch battery) right out.

But wait, what's this? Beneath that battery, separated by a small plastic insert, is another, smaller one, a 377/376 1.55-volt watch battery. The 377/376 powers the analog movement, while the CR2016 powers all the digital stuff and the backlight.

Replace both batteries, making sure to place the plastic insert back on top of the 377/376 before putting the CR2016 back in, and follow the steps in reverse to put the watch back together. You may have some difficulty getting the back plate back on, but I just pressed one side in and held it while I tapped the other side down with my fist.

How do I change the battery in my Casio F-105


When I didn't see an answer, I tried it anyway since I already had the battery and little to lose. Undo the 4 small screws holding the back on (careful - don't drop them). Be careful to keep the small rubber gasket around the edge in its grooves. Do not take the workings out of the watch. There is a small silver arm running across the back over to a cream colored plastic piece with 3 grooves in it. Pieces of the arm are in the outer 2 grooves. Use something small to pry open the arm using the middle groove . Peel it back just a little and replace the battery. The watch should now be working. Snap the arm back in place, be sure the gasket is in place, put the back on,
and screw in the screws. Simple when it works.

I bought a watch and we can't get it to work. We think the battery needs to be changed.


If you take a look at the back of the watch, look for screws holding on the back plate. If there are screws (usually, if they are there there is one in each corner -- unscrew them. If there are no screws in the back of the watch, look VERY carefully at where the backing for the watch connects to the front piece of the watch. There should be a small indentation somewhere along the rim -- use a knife or a small screwdriver in that groove and pop the watch backing off.
Once you have the back of the watch off, you will see the battery right there. Sometimes they just pop out (held in by the watch back) ... sometimes there is a small piece of metal holding it in (in which case you should try to rotate the metal piece off the battery -- don't bend it).
Once the battery is out, take it to a store that sells watch batteries and match the battery type exactly (a lot of watch batteries look the same, but you need an exact match). Put the new battery in, cover it with the metal tab (if there was one) by rotating the tab back over the battery like you found it. Put the watch backing back on (and replace the screws if there were any).
Hopefully, that will kick start your watch for you, and you should be all set :-)

My timex watch back wont close, it fell and popped open, I put battery back in place but now wont close, jeweler tried closing it with machine thing, it wont close.. it has gray leather band with...


If the jewelers equipment will not close it, you have only one option, you must send it back to the maker (see the Timex web site for your nearest service center).

They should be able to fix it. It could be that the watch IS dented (it wouldn't take much to ruin the fit).

Discuss your problem with the service center before sending it to them.

If the maker can't fix it, then you could always use impact adhesive but you would not be able to replace the battery when it dies. No watch later might be better than no watch now!

Watch is too flimsy to change battery!!!


You can only go back to the supplier and explain the situation. At the price of these watches you should expect to get some product support long after the warranty runs out.

(can't help wondering why such a short warranty is offered on a mechanism that you can reasonably expect to work for many years.)

Size 377 battery wont go in - need to unscew something?


I presume that a 377 battery is the same number as what came out. Sometimes there is a small piece of metal that is a strap that helps hold the batter in. Usually, then there is a very small screw that you have to loosen to remove the plate or just move it a bit to get the battery in. Be sure that the battery is not upside down from the way that the original was placed in. Also when putting in a new battery be sure that you don't use metal tweezers to hold the battery as it will short the battery and discharge it. Use your fingers or plastic tweezers.

Casio Databank 150


If your databank is like mine (DB-35H), there is a TINY spring in a really unusual spot that you probably didn't notice that fell out. Laying the watch face down and with the back off, there is a little tiny hole in the back towards one of the corners. (sorry, already put my watch back together and didn't notice which corner.) There is a tiny (1/16" x 1/4") spring that sits upright in that hole. It must make a contact with the metal cover. I replaced my battery and when I did, a spring fell out. I looked all over the internet, then wrote Casio, who said they didn't have access to the information about where the spring went. (Doh!) I got a used DB-35H from my brother and was going to swap the innards when I noticed the spring on his. Put my spring back and it beeps! If you've lost the spring, don't know if you can fake it with tinfoil or not, but it really is a TINY spring. Good luck.

Can't See Display Timex Ironman Triathlon


I have an Ironman also and I agree it is harder to replace the battery than you think. There are electrical contact surfaces inside that have miniscule tolerances in terms of the spacing they have for clearance. You are expected to press on these things with tweezers to reset the battery (as discussed elsewhere on the web), but if they get bent down, they will short out the circuit (a permanently blank display), or the might be out of alignment (a reset every time you press one of the control buttons on the outide of the watch). If you think this has happened to you, open the case (again) you can use a small tool to carefully lift the metal contact back up off the contact plate. Also make sure the back of the case is on tight as this also plays a role the electromechanics of this watch.

Other than that, I admit I really like the Ironman, so easy to use and set.

Good Luck
