Re: changing the band on my casio oceanus 500 wristwatch
If its an OC500, I just figured it out. There are two sides of the pin visible. One has a dimple and one is completely smooth. Use a small phillips or a punch that is the same diameter as the pin and push on the side with the dimple. The pin pushs in only about 1/4 inch and the smooth side protrudes from the other end. Pull or pry on the smooth end to extract it. The pin is actually 2 parts so be careful not to lose the dimple side piece.

mcdevito75 here, If your Casio has a metal band, you can remove 1--2 links, this takes a special tool called a link remover, best bet is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area. If your Casio has a strap, the buckle may be able to move up the strap to fit your wrist, if so, move the buckle up the strap to fit your wrist and cut offf the exccess strap. If not, you"ll have to replace the entire strap. Hope this helps.
You can change the backlight on a casio wristwatch by holding the Light button, but only if it has an LED light in the side of the screen such as yours does. There is Light Blue, Red, Pink, Blue, Green LEDs in the side of the screen and you can change between them. There is also an option that flashes between all the LEDs when you press the button.
If you don't have the proper tools I recommend that you not do this yourself. You could scratch the case or damage the movement if you don't know what you're doing. If it's a water resistant watch the gasket also needs to be replaced once it is opened. DO NOT reuse a gasket! For about $8 any watch or jewelry store can change the battery and renew the gasket for you.
I dont recommend anyone change their own battery unless they have the proper tools to open and close it! If the case back unscrews then you need a case wrench...if it pops off with a knife then you will need a case press to close it or else risk breaking the crystal! Most require equal pressure around the entire edge of the case back! Save yourself time and frustration and possible damage and take it to a reputable watch repair shop!
On ebay you will be able to find the correct Casio band for your watch. There are 2 or 3 dealers that sell them but a little advice....don't buy the cheap ones! Buy ONLY the Casio replacement band and it will fit perfectly. You will need the spring bar tool to remove the pins that hold the band to the case. Don't try to install or remove the band without one....it will gouge the case at the pin stems and you will not be happy. They are cheap and worth every penny. Casio.com can also direct you to their watch bands. Hope this helps you and good luck!
The easiest is to bring it to Wal-Mart, or another store with a watch section in their store, if you buy a new wrist band, they;ll put it on for free. If you're feeling DIY, pull the watch band to the side, untill the metal bar inside is ejected form the slot in the watch, from there, insert the new band's bar into the slot, and voila!
