The back wont go back on watch after changing battery

The jeweler should be able to put the back on again. He/She has the tools.

I replaced battery but still keeps stopping. Runs for awhile and then stops. Timex CR1216

Thanks for contacting FixYa.
I dont know what type of TImex it is, nor how long you have had it. CR1216 is a battery.
I would send to Timex for repair or a local jeweler. I would recommend the Timex repair, You can go here for info:
Best regards. Jewel

mcdevito75 here, Depending on your watch itself, Basically you"d remove the back cover, then release any hold down linkages on the battery, then replace the battery, hold down linkages and cover. The BEST BET is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area for this battery replacement as it may take special jewelers screwdrivers to change the battery.

Bulova accutron 2 years old stopped running after jeweler replaces battery. You could hear a hum but it quit working. Cost to fix?

The first thing I would do is take it to another jeweler (preferably in a higher end store), ask how experienced he/she is with your brand of watch, find out if they are the senior jeweler in the shop and just get a feel of whether you trust their opinion or not. Explain to them what happened and ask them if they can tell whether or not the person who changed the battery for you could have caused the damage to your watch. If they confirm that the person who changed it likely or certainly caused the damage, ask them to write a note explaining what the original jeweler did to cause the malfunction and then call the jewelry shop and tell the owner what you have found out. If they get huffy with you and tell you to buzz off, you have to then decide how much trouble the watch is worth. You can always take them to small claims court, but most shops will back up their work and if you have solid proof that their employee screwed it up and you don't let them back you down, they will likely (eventually) make things right for you. Best of luck!

I have a Geneve watch and need to change the battery. The case seems to have no way of opening it and seems to be one piece and I took it to the jewelers and they can't replace the battery. Is there any...

Of course, there is the way to change the battery, but for this you have to visit your closest watch repair shop. I do mean WATCH REPAIRS, not the jewellers. Decent watchmaker will definitely open your watch and will replace the battery. Your watch's case appears to be a monoblock. That means you'll need to lift the crystal first, pull the stem second and just then you'll be able to extract watch's movement for replacing battery. Do not forget: jewellers and watchmakers are under one roof, but their trades are completely different. No jeweller can do watchmakers job and vice versa. Rate me, plz.

Battery was replaced by a jeweler. Since that

As the jeweller is not a watchmaker, he/she even did not realise the watch is not working properly. It sounds like your watch is having jammed gear train or the jeweller did not know how to reset the watch. Go to this website:
If you will not find solution there, you will have to look for watchmakers help.

Rate me, please.

Phillipe Stark PH1079 watch - Can't get back off to replace bat

There is nothing wrong with your watch. The problem is in tools the jewellers are using for opening the watch.
Despite being under one roof, watchmaking and jewellery are completely different trades and are miles apart. Jewellers usually are equipped with very basic watch repair tools and the case openers are no exeption.
You have to find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for watchmaker, not jeweller. Any decent watchmaker will have the right tool to open your watch and replace the battery in a matter of minutes.
