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.

SOURCE: setting model number jr3060-59f

1. set mode to CHR with the bezel fully in.
2. pull bezel out 2 notches. This will set all (or most) hands to 12.
3.press A (top button) repeatedly until you get MIN in the left window
4.turn the bezel to move the min hand forward.
4a. turn the bezel several clicks in quick sucession to get the minute hand to continue to move in the forward direction. This will "drag" the 24 hr UTC hour hand froward 1 hour per 1 revolution of the minute hand. if the minute hand stops before you want it to repeat step 4a. continue till the 24 hr UTC hour hand points to 24.
5. to stop the minute hand turn the bezel backwards 1 click. remember however to approach the 12 position with the minute hand in a clockwise direction.

SOURCE: what is the proper battery placement or orientation for eco-drive

The Citizen Eco Drive watches use special recharchable batteries.
I started collecting a couple of watches and I noticed sometimes a jeweler replaces them with an ordinary battery. The watch will work and at the same time it will try to recharge this one until it explodes! In newer models they made it harder to use the non-rechargable ones by adding a special connector or clip to the rechargable battery types. If you look into the place where the battery goes, you will see a shiny spot where the metal clip needs to touch. If not sure, find the link to tech docs below.
Okay, if you say your battery goes bad, did you store your watch in a drawer as many people do? It may have lost the charge over time. First thing to try is to leave it on the window sill so the dial is in the sun. It will start ticking, but please leave it out there for 3 days to a week. The seconds hand will tick irregularly in steps of one and two seconds, to show you it wants you to readjust the time, as it knows it has lost time. Adjust the time and it should run smoothly.
The seconds hand should run in single second steps, if it takes steps regularly, but every 3 seconds or so, it tries to tell you that its power level is going down. It will be able to continue for one or two days, but you should get it into the sun more often.
Charging the battery under a lamp is possible, however this heats up the watch and this may reduce battery life.
If you need to know more about the Eco Drive, look for detail tech manuals for all types here: http://www.citizenwatch.com/downloads/tech/tech.htm
Those are great watches as long as you remember it needs light to charge.

My Citizen Skyhawk Eco-Drive JR3000-51F Wrist Watch has stopped running. The analog hands have stopped at 12:00 and the left digital read out is flashing UTC and the right digital read out is flashing...


I had the same issue, and was able to reset it doing the following:

1. I let it recharge for at least a day in bright sunlight
2. I turned the selector to "CHR"
3. I pulled the crown all the way out.
4. I held both buttons down for 5 seconds (don't know if this was what did it.
5. I pushed the crown back in.

It did some funky hand movements stuff and then started off working.
