Casio pathfinder battery operated watch keeps blanking out display?

Your watch is solar powered, so I think it isn't charged lately. At a low charge, the watch goes into saving mode by switching off the display (while keeping the time, date, etc.). To charge the watch leave it in a brightly lit spot for a day or two. That should be enough to make the watch function as normal again.

For more information, you can download the manual of your watch here (direct download link):

I have a Casio 1470 pathfinder watch. I did not use it for several years The batteries ran down, have replaced them and now have no display or functions

mcdevito75 here, I would see the jeweler who installed the new batteries and ask to have the battery install double checked so they are makeing proper contact with the LCD movement. In the meantime you can try to hold down the MODE button for a few seconds and see if the display appears, also if the display screen has turned very dark, your Casio may have had it, as the LCD display could have gone bad. New batteries should bring up a display even after the watch has been stored. Hopefully the display is still a grayish color and the new batteries need re-alignment.

After inserting the batteries I do not get any lcd reading.

mcdevito75 here, Double check your battery insertion 1 of them or both incorrectly installed. If you"ve used to much pressure in installing the batteries you could have damaged the LCD display happens with Casio LCD"s. If the LCD display has turned color it may be shot. It may also be you need the press any function button to activate the LCD as when you installed new batteries it simply shut down.

Activate the 24 hr clock function

Press the mode button until you find the setting for 24 hour or 12 hour setting. (It is likely that the message will be abbreviated because of the limitations of the display, so some interpretation may be needed.).

You change the setting by pressing one of the other buttons on your watch - some experimenting may be needed.

Can't get the Hourly chime to shut off - tried going to alarm, then hitting adjust Button - alarm shuts on or off , but not Chime

using the mode button (lower left, go to the alarm. once at this screen, hit the "12/24H" button (lower right). now hit the "adjust" button (upper left), that should toggle the hourly chime on and off. you'll see the bar next to 'SIG'. when it's lit, it's on, when it's blank, it's off.

Polar F6 - Battery replaced, display corrupt after watch loads.

I had the same problem and attempted what banjodoug suggested above. It did not help. I had a faint display even before I re-inserted it into my watch frame. I surmised it wasn't the battery position.

I then took apart the damn thing and put it back together several times, each time rushing to push the setting/center button only to derive the same problem over and over.

I then took it apart one more time and pinched in all of the sides of the metal frame that holds it all together, thinking that I had a bad ground. After I did that, I reassembed it and waited. The display came on with the test display and then eventually went to the standard display on its own and all was good to go.

I suspect the issue was solved by correcting an improper ground and a proper initialization process - both solved by the steps I took above.

Hope it works for you!
