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.

IF this link does not work, go to www.timex.com and click on help, then click on manuals and downloads,then click view all watch manuals,go down the list until you find Ironman combo and click on it. You need a pdf reader to view this info. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Random display resets of TIMEX Ironman Triathalon(100 lap memory)

Hello RLOWE803,

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.

Good luck,
CAZ

Can't turn off chime on timex ironman watch


Go to the timex website, scroll to bottom, click on Product Manuals and Downloads. Then at the bottom of next page, find your watch by model number and look up how to control chime in instructions. It is usually something in the alarm menu... in my case, hitting stop/reset in alarm mode toggles the chimes.

Mine did the same thing after changing the battery and would reset intermittently without warning. For some unknown reason I decided to open the watch again. This time I reset the time and date with the back off the watch while deprssing the small spring that is there on the inside . Haven't had a problem since. Don't know if this is the solution but it worked for me. Good luck!

Screen goes blank


I put a new CR2025 battery in my T5e671 Timex and it solved the problem.
The screen no longer goes blank at any time.
PS:Timex manual says "remove battery strap" to replace the battery.
But it doesn't say HOW.-& I couldn't google an answer to that.
Here is how:
The metal strap goes across the middle of the battery and then goes over the edge of it on both sides.
At both edges the metal strap goes over a nylon tab.
One of those nylon tabs is notched, if you put the end of a paperclip in the notch, you can release the metal strap edge that runs under it.
