Pulsar NX14 Digital Display gone blank

The digital display of my Pulsar Nx14 has gone blank. Pressing buttons etc does nothin to change display. Nothing in manual about this type of problem. Less than a year old so would it be battery at this early stage?

Do not panic yet - all you need is the battery replacement.
Don't mind that the watch is less than a year old - it may laid in sellers store for a year or so and as the watches are not refitted with the brand new battery at the selling point, they may have underpwered battery much more quicker than you expected
Find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for battery replacement. Your watch will tick as brand new and will last much longer then before.

Do not forget to rate, please.

Replacing the batteries in a seiko/pulsar nx14 is tricky, but can be done DIY.
- remove the back (preferably with special tool, otherwise with pliers/siccors).
- pull out the stem while pushing down in the hole indicating 'push'
- now lift the whole movement out of the case.
- unhinge the metal cover. Careful, things might come out!
- replace batteries
- revert

How do I set the right time on my Casio 5208 aq-s800w watch


All you have to do is to set the digital time.After pressing the upper left button for 2-3 seconds the display digits start to flash.By pressing lower left button (MODE) once at a time and by using the left side buttons, you can set the right time,date etc.When finished press upper left button again to complete setting.Automatically the hour and minute hands will be set to the correct time following the digital time.

HOW DO I SET MY DIGITAL -- (PUSH BUTTON) -- WATCH


mcdevito75 here, The Quartz Mechanism is made in such a way, that the battery"s electricity changes in a way, while going thru the Quartz and thus Display"s the Numbers and or Letters on the Dial or Display, By PRESSING these Various Buttons, you are Changeing the Battery"s Voltage thru the Quartz and thus Displaying the Numbers and or Letters. ---------- Genarally, you need worry about only TWO (2) of these Buttons to SET your DIGITAL (push button) Watch, They are the MODE and SET Buttons. ------------- The MODE Button is usually on the Right side of the caseing, PRESS this Button, depending on your watch you may have to hold down this MODE Button 2--3 seconds, once you see the Dial Or Display BLINKING you are set to RE--SET your watch, NOW, PRESS the SET Button, usually on the LEFT side of the caseing to change each Function (Hour, Minute Etc.) once each Function is SET, PRESS the MODE Button to move onto the next Function. ------ Once all the Functions are SET, PRESS MODE again to see a STEADY Display or Dial. ---- It May take a little practice so be patient. ------ Some DIGITAL watches may not have a MODE BUTTON, But Rather a DIMPLE on the watch caseing you would PUSH in with a PIN or Tooth Pick, same MODE and SET procedures would apply. --------- Use your watches name plus .com online to obtain a user manual or look for a small watch repair shop in your area to order a NEW owners manual for your watch.

My watch is 8 months old and just stopped..the screen still displays the exact time and date that it died..but because it's digital if it was the battery the screen should have gone blank?!!


Best bet is to start by replacing the battery. At 8 months it'll be due for one soon anyway and a new battery may "reboot" it so it runs again. As a battery wears out it doesn't just stop, it may still maintain the display even though it stops keeping time. Also, new "e-ink" displays require no power to maintain the display 0 only to change it.

The hour & minute hands on my pulsar nx14-x001 do not move. the second hand quivers, but also does not move. the digital time and other functions are okay. HELP!


Without knowing the model of the watch i would say you need a new battery. It is typical for this style of watch to have two batteries or one lithium battery. In either case the analog movement will drain faster than the digital portion of the watch and will stop working first.

No manual


On the Pulsar website they tell you that the manuals are organized by "calibre" number. I did a search and I think the calibre number of your watch is NX14. If that's right, here's a link to the manual:

http://www.pulsarwatches-europe.com/PDFUpload/NX14_E.pdf

If that's not the right calibre number then look at this Pulsar site to find out what is the right calibre number:

http://www.pulsarwatches-europe.com/instructions.asp

By the way, Internet Explorer kept telling me I need to download a Language Pack when I clicked on the above links. I just hit "cancel" and everything loaded fine.

At last count far less than half of the solutions I've provided have gotten a vote or a response. I think the benefit of this site is when a solution (right or wrong) get's some feedback so others can learn from it...my two cents.
