All you have to do is place the watch in direct sunlight for about 12-24 hours and it will be working perfectly again in no time at all. Make sure the light is shining directly onto the watch's face as that is what needs to absorb the solar power. You can just place it in a window sill that gets a lot of sunlight and let it charge all day.

If you appreciate me solving this for you then please rank this solution as "fixya" or at least "helpful", thanks!

How to a recharge a citizen eco drive silhouette ladies watch..model number sy2030-54E?


Do you mean, you haven't been wearing that watch but to put it in the drawer for a long time?
If so, to recharge the battery, just put your watch outside or anywhere it can catch the sun ray or day light. After few hours or about a day, the battery has been re-charged and your watch will work.
If it still doesn't work after doing that, buy a new watch. Don't bother to repair the watch or to replace the Eco-Drive battery, because of the cost.

CITIZEN ECO-DRIVE SKYHAWK WATCH not working


If this watch is several year old, it could be that the power cell is defective, and won't hold a charge. I have been also told by a Citizen Tech, that they will sometimes "hangup" or lock up, and may just need a quick jolt. This doesn't happen often, but Citizen has the equipment to test and supply this jolt to sort of kick start the movement again. They would also replace the battery while it was open. You can sometimes place it into direct sunlight for 15-30 minutes, but no longer...unless you want to melt the insides...lol.

Most Geniune Citizens have a five year warranty. Keep that mind too. Thanks.

Leave your watch on window sill (sunshine must be plenty) for a week. If the watch will not keep charge after that, visit your closest watch repair shop and ask to replace capacitor. Rate me, plz.

I own 3 Citizen ECO watches that have lost their charge.


Hiya Papahay,

are the crowns out at time set mode. This mode activates a 'hack device' ( a small spring in the watch) which will cut power to the circuit.

With the crown out and under light (even a desklamp directly with in a few mms above them) should do the trick.

These capacitors do need replacing, I suggest give the above a go for a least 24 hrs straight and go from there. When there are fully charge all you need to do is pull the crown out to time set mode and leave under light

Dead Citizen Eco-Drive


You need to expose this watch to sunlight for about 8 hours to let it recharge it's solar cell. Make sure that sunlight is shining directly on the face and not just "kind of" shining on the face. I put it in a window ledge where the sun beats down to make sure it gets the most sunlight possible.

Repeat this for a few days to make sure it's fully charged.

Restarting my Citizen Promaster Eco Divers 200 Watch


Since it's eco-drive you can just wear it for a few hours and it should self-wind. The problem is that when it sits still for more than a few days it winds down. It gets its power from the natural movement of your wrist as you walk around.

Once it starts ticking again you'll just have to set the time correctly.
