I have the same problem. Timex has made sure the internals of the watches hate having their battery changed. It's just so they can make us think "Why change the battery, just buy a new one." And really, it works. I've given up on mine. Time to move on to a nice Casio. Sorry. Unless you are a really technical expert on watches, you're pretty much SOL.

While I was looking for pictures specific to resetting this watch, I came across your post and thought to reply. I recently replaced the batteries on my watch, which I have owned for nearly 7 years. It is an Ironman Triathlon 100 Lap watch. When I replaced the batteries this time, I forgot to reset, in essence reboot the system, by using a metal needle point tweezers to briefly connect the positive side of the battery to the "AC" pad on the small circuit board for at least 2 seconds. I remembered to do this with at all the other times I had replaced the battery and did not have any troubles after it. This time I forgot and now have the same issue you described. I am not sure where the "AC" pad is on the back of the module. But, it should be apparent if I did it correctly in the past.
Give that a try before sending it off to be repair and wasting time, money and trouble.
