    Just replaced the Battery (CR2106) in a Timex Mens Analogue wrist watch and now the Indiglo light and stopwatch hands all work, but the actual watch doesn't work, the mechansim doesnt move neither do the hands move autonomously. Any Ideas?


    Thanks

I ended up putting the watch between two layers of a shop rag and tightened it in my garage vise. First try didn't work so the second try I turned the vise another /14 turn. Voilla! Stupid watch!!

I had the same problem, and could not find any answers on timex.com. After you place the battery in and it begins to beep, push all four buttons in at the same time. This should "reset" the watch -- at least it did for me.

SOURCE: can't put (back) back on my timex indiglo

I used to work with jewelry. !!BEWARE!!
This method is for face crystals that are completely FLAT! Any convex crystal will shatter without proper tools!!!
Any method of putting the watch cover back with the watch remotely near water/moisture is a mistake. The watch will rust sooner or later.
So if you don't want to pay a jeweler five dollars to put it back on, this is what I did to my sister's watch cover when I could not snap it back.
I took my cushy 1/4 inch mousepad to a vise. You may not have a vise. If you don't, stop reading now and take the watch to a jeweler --one who replaces batteries.
Inside the vise jaws, I used a 5 inch square piece of wood, then my cushy mousepad, then the watch facing the pad, then the back in the right place for restoring.
!!!!NOTE: Not having the back in the right place will smash the stem and damage can/will result!!!
To push the back on, I picked a 12 point socket out of my socket set that was the same DIAMETER as the watch back and placed it CENTERED behind the back.
Recapping, inside vise:

  • small board
  • cushy mousepad (to avoid scarring and crystal breakage
  • watch crystal facing mousepad
  • watch back in correct position
  • ratchet socket the same diameter as watch back centered behind cover
Slowly I positioned all these items with minimal pressure. Then when I was sure that I was ready (and prepared to hear the crystal break) I put as little pressure closing the vise that I could. The I heard a snap, and to my relief, it was the back going in!

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO WHAT I DID. People with broken watch crystals become very IRATE when "all it needed was a battery"!

A screw clamp would also give adequate pressure. Any unsupported direct pressure over the crystal will shatter it!

Hope this helped.
Good luck!!!!

Use the numbers on the back of your watch and you will have a PDF version of your instruction manual.

Hope this tip helps

My Timex Expedition Indiglo wrist watch has had two new batteries and keeps on stopping quite frequently. The Jewler cleaned everything and it still won't work properly. Is there somewhere that I can send...


The watch would have to go back to the manufacture, try www.timex.com for customer support and ask for technical assistance, they should be able to direct you to the nearest authorized store or they may have you send it to them.

Hello, I just bought a Timex Acqua with Indiglo


Depending on when you bought your Timex, you shouldn"t need a battery just yet, your Timex came with a good battery. Look under the stem (winder) for a small piece of plastic that is not allowing the stem to go all the way down, remove that piece of plastic and push the stem down and your Timex will start. Or if your Timex has buttons, look for a tab of plastic on the back cover, this tab of plastic is keeping the battery from (ground) a complete circuit remove this tab of plastic to start your Timex. Changeing the battery while fairly easy, you"d need jewelers screwdrivers and of course the new battery, Best Bet, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for the battery change.

I have a timex HRM. The indigo light just stopped working. I've had it for 3 weeks. There is a faint light on the edge, but it doesn't illuminate the face. Everything else works normal. Any ideas?


Check out if your watch has second battery for Indiglo function. It is quite common for Timex watches to have two batteries - one for movement and another for Indiglo.

Indiglo does not work after changing battery


On a Timex a lot of times the back has to be on for everything to work. But I am going to assume the back is on. The indiglo could just be out. Timex repairs their watches for little or no cost. You would have to mail it to them for repair as they do not release parts to anyone. I believe their number is 1-800 for time

Some Timex watches are fitted with two batteries (one for indiglo, another for watch movement). Check out if you have this sort of model.

Timex indiglo. Indiglo feature died.


The indiglo technology is time limited (it dims over the years with use) and cannot be repaired - have you had the watch a long time? if so, I'm afraid it's time to get a new one. Sorry!

Timex Expedition, beeps very quietly and indiglo doesn't work.


To clarify... Replace the cover with the arrow on the back pointing directly at the stem. The Indiglo backlight, alarms and chimes should all work when the back cover is in this position.
