Question about Casio Pathfinder PAG60-1AV Watch

Casio PAG60 display blanks out, charge will not keep

My Casio PAG60 seems to be losing the ability to keep a charge. It is solar powered. It will not charge past medium and only hold its charge for two - three days. The light also comes on without me pushing the button; sometimes all I have to do is turn my wrist and it lights up. I think it will probably have to go to a service center but I'm not sure it is worth the cost of doing so. Any ideas on how to fix this problem?

In addition to the Pin there is also a small inner "locking" collar about 2mm long that fits into the center section of each link.

I did not notice this collar at first and it fell to the ground when I removed the first link. Without this piece the Pin's will just slide through the links with no locking mechanism.

It fits neatly into the inner portion of the link directly opposite the arrow that shows the direction of removal on the band.

SOURCE: How do I get the pins out of the titanium band for Casio PAW1500T

You may or may not have arrows inside bracelet. Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet or adding extra link(s) make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!
If you do not want to do it yourself, any jeweler will do it in a matter of few minutes.

SOURCE: casio PRO TREK error 'OP EN'

The problems is very simple: On the back cover (inside) is a little Cu metal Part. This part is glued to back cover using a poor glue (rubbered glue) and, in time, is moving from original position. You must put back this parts to original positin ( a little hole inside of back cover) and glue using a good glue. When the back cover is mounted , this part must have a ferm contact with two springs from mechanism (sensor for back cover open). If beatwin this springs isn't a electric short (using Cu metal parts) the internal mechanism of watch "see" the back cover is open and show "OPEN" on screen!

Casio pathfinder battery operated watch keeps blanking out display?


Your watch is solar powered, so I think it isn't charged lately. At a low charge, the watch goes into saving mode by switching off the display (while keeping the time, date, etc.). To charge the watch leave it in a brightly lit spot for a day or two. That should be enough to make the watch function as normal again.

For more information, you can download the manual of your watch here (direct download link):

Why my watch not display or blank after keep for long time


As this is a solar powered watch,there is the PS (Power Saver) function.
If PS is ON (which is by default) display will become blank if watch stays in the dark for sometime.As you bring it back in light,display will be activated automatically.You can switch PS to OFF and have display activated all the time even in dark (not recommended) but in this case battery will run short quickly.And this watch needs power as it is a multifunction watch + atomic time setting.

Flashing charge


I couldn't find your model on thier web site but this range appears to have solar panels to charge the battery. Place your watch in bright sunlight or under a lamp (not a hot one) to charge the battery.

If this fails, consult your nearst dealer.

The word LOW means that the solar battery charger is not charging. This could be a defective charger or you're not out in the sun long enough to keep it charged.

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.

Is it SOLAR?
I have a Casio Pathfinder, SOLAR, ATOMIC! They have a permanent battery!!!
It must be exposed to the sun occasionally to charge. If yours has nothing on the display, try putting it out in the sun for a day. Put it in a window, sitting on a window sill. Depending on how little charge it has, it may take as long as three days to charge.
Otherwise, the alternative is calling Casio, getting an RMA and sending it to them for a battery replacement.

My solar powered 50-lap Ironman died after 1 month of normal use! Now it just stares blankly at me until I press any of the buttons, in which case it goes back to 12:00 and works for a couple of minutes...


I have exactly the same problem with my solar powered Casio watch.
I discussed it with a good jeweler and he explained that when you have sun, the watch 's battery will be charged up. But when the battery's charge is used up it works off a capacitor power source. But if the capacitor is defective(no available backup power) you then end up with a blank display. And it'll display the default settings(12:00) for a while only.
You can have a jeweler change the capacitor to get it working again.
For my $100+ watch, it'll cost me about $25 to replace the capacitor.
But for yours, the watch may not have cost that much and therefore
be hard to justify that cost.
I hope the explanation was not too technical for you. Good Luck.

On the solar charge watches, they use a chargeable Lithium battery. It is NOT an off the shelf regular battery! It is best to send the watch to the factory service rep in your area for a battery change.

In many of these models the battery is using solder contacts to the circuit board. The person changing the battery will require the original spec battery, and be equiped to do surface type soldering.

When working on this watch, the factory service will change the seals and do a pressure water resistance test. The regular corner watch service store is not equiped to do this type of testing.

Normaly, the battery in solar watches should last more than 5 years. Some are going past 10 years!
