The indiglo technology is time limited (it dims over the years with use) and cannot be repaired - have you had the watch a long time? if so, I'm afraid it's time to get a new one. Sorry!

I have an old Timberland Indiglo watch in which I had the same problem. I folded up a paper towel for padding and I used two sets of pliers, one to hold one side of the watch while I used the other set of pliers to snap the back cover closed. It took two seconds to do.

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.

Display disappears when Indiglo is pressed


That means your watch has two batteries - one for the movement and another one for INDIGLO. It may have just one battery, but in this case INDIGLO is taking up too much power. Replace the battery and you will be sorted. Rate me, plz.

After about two years, my indiglo night light function stopped working. The watch is still working, keeping time. Will changing the battery fix the indiglo problem?


Definitely, battery change will solve the Indiglo light problem. Many of wristwatches has separate battery for Indiglo function, but my advise is to change them both at once - will be cheaper for you.

Rate me, please.

THE INDIGLO DOES NOT COME ON WHEN THE BUTTON IS PUSHED. THE WATCH CONTINUES TO RUN HOWEVER. THE WATCH WAS A GIFT THAT HAD NO ENCLOSED WARRANTY FOR ME TO FILL OUT/MAIL IN. WHAT CAN YOU DO FOR ME?


Many of Timex watches has two separate batteries- one for watch and another for indiglo feature. It looks like you have to replace indiglo battery. Nearest watchmaker will do that for you.

Timex Expedition, beeps very quietly and indiglo doesn't work.


To clarify... Replace the cover with the arrow on the back pointing directly at the stem. The Indiglo backlight, alarms and chimes should all work when the back cover is in this position.
