If your watch is blacking out when the light is used, this is the first sign for battery replacement as light feature consumes more power than all watch mechanics together. Uderpowered battery can be the reason why the battery gauge do not show any bars.
My advice is to change battery first.
If the watch will have the same problem after battery replacement, then you will need watch repairers advise as it will be clear that the watch is having mechanical or electronic fault and in this case only watchmaker would be able to deal with it.

From your description the solar cell charges the battery and keeps it topped up. I think the rechargeable battery is the problem because when the screen goes blank the battery level drops to low and the LCD blanks out which would explain the intermittent operation of the watch. I think it is worth getting it checked out with an estimate.

That sounds the same as car battery will do when it has a cell going bad. It's possible the battery has a defective segment, and will show a full charge for a while. It just doesn't have the capacity or amperage to run the watch properly. It could just need a reset on the Service Center equipment...or it could be a defective battery, even after only three years.

I've changed my battery on my casio g-shock dw 003 but the illuminator no longer works! why?


Did the same with my DW-003 and thought I'd broken the Illuminator (and the alarm didn't work). Next battery change was via a shop and the illuminator worked again (as did the alarm). This was just a battery cahnge, rather than a repair job - One of those things, I guess

I just replace the battey on a g shock dw 9050 and i cant set the time i shows the time but at the top it flashes TYO


Did you ground the battery? If not you need to open up the watch and find the ground and take a tweezer and touch the top of the battery and the ground.You should be able to move on from there, if not are your buttons making contact with the movement?

I had the battery in my Casio G Shock DW 6800 replaced. Since then none of the beeps or alarms have worked. Is there a reset button he didn't press?


There is a reset button inside your watch, but I don't think that is the problem. Most likely, there is a spring that makes contact to the watch and the back of your watch case, and it fell out by the person replacing your battery. I would definitely go back to the place where you had the battery installed, and have them take care of the problem buy ordering you a new spring or have them pay for you to send it to Casio.

Casio GW300 (2608) battery replacement


Hey all. The charge provided by the solar cells on the watch only really extend the life of the battery. The total run time of a battery depends on how the watch is used... backlight requirements etc. The battery will be depleted and need to be replaced.

Here is a site that has good instructions on how to change the battery in your G-Shock watch.

If you want to ensure you still have a the same water resistance rating, I do suggest that you take it to a watch guy to have it replaced for you. They clean switch contacts also and you keep water resistance rating. Good Luck and vote this as a "FixYa". Cheers

Casio 2654 mtg 901


sounds like it might not be getting enough sunlight. If it has the solar cell in it tape it to the inside of your window for a weekend. If it doesn't charge up the battery enough to make that bar quit flashing then you may need to have the battery changed.
