Question about Casio G-Shock GW500A-1V Wrist Watch

2 Answers

Cannot delete Thanks for the previous answer (regarding the role of left upper display), apparently it's an emulation of an analog display. I successfully synchronised both manual and automatic the watch but an annoying "E" sign persist on the display. It first showed when I tried to manually synch it in the offfice (unsuccessfully) and ever since it stays on. Was hoping that after OK synch it will dissapear along with the signal sign (as set by the factory at 3 am) but it didn't. Can you help? Thanks

Dude, I think it is an "E" for eastern time. Check and see if it changes to a "P" when you change to pacific time in the world time mode. If it does that is what the "E" is for. Hope this helps, it took me a long time to figure it out.

My watch has a tiny letter just to the right of the signal strength indicator. In my case it is a C because I live in the central time zone. Perhaps you live in the eastern time zone? The E may not be short for ERROR but instead stands for EASTERN. Its called the E/C/M/P indicator.

I don't know if you have had a chance yet, but the manual that I talked about previously does show this feature on the first page. Its called "Operation Guide 2608 2638 2688". Your watch almost certainly has a 2688 module.

I hope that was the E that you were talking about.

As for the signal sign, you want it to be there. You need to worry when its absent. :-) I think all waveceptors are like that.

I hope that helps.

I have a disallignement of 10 minutes between the digital and the analogical time. The digital time is perfect how can I allign the analogical one?


You have to know that analog time "follows" digital time.Any hour/minutes correction on the display has direct effect on time/minutes hands.Some times, mostly after battery replacement,hands might have declination.That is why there is a function so called "Hands home position adjustment".Using this function you can align both hands to 12/00 position.If there is any declination (I think is your case) you can correct.Try to enable this function by pressing for 4-5 sec the upper left button(A) until "HAND SET" appears.If hands are not aligned exactly to 12/00 position, you must correct by pressing the lower right button (D) for forward movement or the upper right button (B) for backward movement.In fact, minutes hand is aligned,hour hand follows.When both hands are set to 12/00 (home position) press button A again.Time Mode returns to the display.Normally hands will now show exactly according to digital (display) time.I hope this will help.

I have a casio ediface 5033 80W-M10008 how do I set the analog time


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
To set the analog time, press the lower left button 6 times. Next, press and hold the upper left button until the digital time starts to blink. This indicates that you are in analog time setting mode.

Analog time adjustment is completed using the lower right button. Every time you press the button, the analog time will advance 20 seconds. If you need to make a big change to the analog time, press and hold the lower right button to make the hands move faster. Once the analog time is set, press the upper left button to exit the analog time setting mode.
Best regards. Jewel

    Press the lower left button twice. The hours unit will start blinking. To advance the hour, press the lower right button repeatedly until the correct hour is displayed. If you need to move the hours unit backwards, press the middle right button until the correct hour is displayed.

    After the time is set, press the upper left button to exit the digital time setting function.

Put new battery in wave cepor now can't get it in proper time zone. # on back, boxed [2735] WVA-105H


It may well be that the digital time displayed on the LCD is correct, but the hands (referred to as analog time in the manual) do not match.
If this is the case, to set the so called analog time:
Press the lower left button six times to enter HS (hand setting) mode.
Then press and hold the upper left button until the display starts to flash.
You can now use the two buttons on the right to move the hands forward or backwards to exactly the same ime as the digital LCD display.
When finished adjusting the hands press the upper left button one last time to exit.

What's the role of the first display (left upper corner) Casio-GW500A-1V? Simply couldn't figure out after reading the owner manual. Thanks


I really should have chosen to make the previous message a "solution" rather than a "clarification request. Regardless, a MUCH better manual than what comes with the unit can be found at

http://world.casio.com/wat/download/en/manual/

Here you can type in your 4 digit module number and get a great document that tells you how to operate your unit and some of how it works. (Adobe Acrobat - PDF file)

Unfortunately it doesn't explicitly answer your question, but its a much better manual.

I really do think each "pie slice" represents 5 minutes.

Enjoy!

Cant se time Citizen 8988-q02047 HSB wristwatch


In the time mode, press the upper right button for 2 seconds and the time display will flash. Then press the same button untill the entire time will flash, or both hour and minutes flash at same time. When the hour and minutes flash at same time, this adjust mode is the adjusting of the analog left display (A1). Now, press the lower button for adjusting de hour shown at the digital display that shows the same hour at analog display. This method is to adjusting the 8982 that is the "father" of 8988. Like a Citizen collector, and don´t know any website that you can view the setting instruction of 8988, only the 8982 is disposable here: http://www.citizenwatch.com/downloads/techguides/8982.pdf
