Watch is blank/not charging

I own a Casio G-Shock GW330A.Atomic solar powered. Bought it about two years ago. All of a sudden the face is blank There is a very small "charging" sign blinking. But it has been doing this for the last two days which is very unusual. Is this the end of the life of my watch?

I have the same problem. I am not sure, but I think that, over time, the battery gets weak and dosen't hold its charge without exposing it to sunlight for an extended period of time. I think it may be time to change the battery.

I replaced the battery. The watch started time from Jan. 1


You have to set the year, the month and the date. Then you set the time zone. After that you can set the local time. You may also have to set the Daylight Savings Time.
The watch has a built in calendar that may run from let's say January first 2000 to the year 2070 (just a guess). If you set the calendar correctly you do not have to adjust the date when a month has 30 days, or when it is a leap year.

Chances are your atomic Casio needs to be charged, the battery that is. Simply wear the watch outside in the sunlight.

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.

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!
