This could be a problem w/the movement (not the battery). Timex's warranty covers the movement, so I would find the receipt and call Timex about this problem (they generally need info off of your receipt unless you have already registered your warranty). They will be able to fix it for you.

My Timex Indeglo watch does not have any means of opening the watch so I can replace the battery. It kept perfect time when it ran, but now it does not run at all. Is it supposed to be a disposable watch...


  • If you don't already know what size battery you need, you can find this information on the back plate of your watch. Once you have your replacement battery, you will need to open the back of the watch to gain access to the battery compartment. Depending on the watch, the back plate will either screw off or be attached by a few small screws. If attached with screws, you will need a set of precision screwdrivers such as a jewelry or eyeglass kit.

    Inside the battery compartment, you will see the battery is held down by a clip. Carefully remove the clip and eject the battery. Insert the new battery and replace the clip. If the battery clamp indicates you should do so, quickly press the reset button twice. Then reattach the back of the watch. If the watch display remains off after replacing the battery, press all buttons at the same time to reset the display.

    On my Timex T53722 the bottom of the display is cut off and the Contact mode is getting erratic. It has a new battery.


    mcdevito75 here, If you changed the battery yourself, you"ll have to go back into the watch to make sure the buttons are presssing fully, and on the correct spot on the quartz movement, some times these button contacts get mis-aligned due to moveing the movement while replaceing the battery, you"ll also have to check the battery contact in the watch also, make sure the battery is being held fairly tight, the battery could have gotton loose. If you had the shop replace the battery, return to the shop for adjustments.

    The light was fading on my Indiglo Timex watch but it was still keeping good time, so I had a new battery installed by a Walmart employee. The light now works on the watch but the watch stopped keeping...


    mcdevito75 here, Your Timex watch is most likely an Indiglo meaning light, The battery supplies power to to Quatz mechanism for time keeping and for the light. There is a very good possibility that 1 or 2 of the contacts between the battery and the Quatrz mechanism were lost during the new battery installation. While you can"t rule out that the Quartz mechanism and or the light may be wearing down, you still have to suspect the battery even a new battery, look for a small watch repair shop in your area and try another battery, let the jewler know of your watches problem so he / she can properly install the battery and ensure the contacts between the Quartz and the battery are being made.

    After replacing battery, the watch does not


    I found and pressed the reset button with a tiny screw driver. After about 10 attempts, I pressed the function side button and found that date and time displayed temporarily while holding button down.

    Finally after more reset attempts, the time did display.

    Indigo light is not working properly, battery needed?


    Timex suggests that you have a watch repair person change your watch batteries. I think it would be a good idea to try and replace the battery, but if that fails to work, contact Timex for advice. If they suggest that you should replace the entire wath, keep the battery. I have no guarantee that any of that would work, though.

    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.
