2 Answers

I just recently purchased a brand new Casio G-Shock GW-002KA 2913

Woke up one AM and all screens are blank and the "chg" keeps blinking but no buttons seems to be working (not even the light)
The watch is brand new and has only been worn a handfull of times...Any suggestions

    I have a g-shock gw 500a wave ceptor and my watch continues to shut off when not exposed to sun light, on my arm, under my sleeve!? It turns off until I lay it in the sun light for a day. Its embarrassing to look at my arm and not have a display throughout the work day. Help!?.

    I have the same problem I have the GW - 500A and it keeps flashing Charging. I am guessing it will take some time to appear again because it is low on charge.

I think it might be a loose connection to the battery. Send it back to Casio? Return and buy a new/ different watch?

How do you "unfreeze" a champion c9 wrist watch?


I am having the same problem. The battery is fine, the seconds are ticking away, but none of the side buttons work. The light doesn't come on and nothing happens with any of the others either. The only thing that did work was pressing all four of the buttons simultaneously, which seemed to totally reset the watch. The problem is it reset but didn't fix the buttons. So now I can't even see the correct time anymore.

Accutime batman watch time setting


if it is the Batman watch that has a secret screen that lights up when you pushed the bottom middle of the watch face this is what worked for me.I call that secret middle button the mode button.
push and hold that secret button on the watch face until the hour side of the time starts to blink. let go when you see the hour blink and then you can keep pressing to change the hour. to change the minute I let it go back into sleep mode then press and hold the secret button on the watch face and when it starts to blink let go for half a second and then press down and hold that button again and a minute numbers should start blinking. when they start blinking let go and then push once for each minute. it seems once you start one of these cycles letting go for half a second and then pressing and holding the mode button works. you'll have to experiment with how long to let go and then push.

I had the exact same problem with my watch, it wouldn't stop beeping or flashing and the reset would not work. I fixed the problem an hour ago by replacing the battery in the watch.

I bought the water resist watch from walmart this evening it doesnt have a name brand on the watch but i think its a casio but it didnt come with the instructions on how to use it, the number on the back...


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • There should be four buttons: mode, reset, start and light. Find the mode button and press it three times until it is in the set time mode.
  • 2 Find the reset button, which usually is located on the bottom right side of the watch face, and hold it until the time starts blinking.
  • 3 Press the start button to change minutes.
  • 4 Press the reset button again to switch to hours. You will know it worked when the hour starts blinking instead of the minutes.
  • 5 Press the start button to change the hour. The watch can handle two modes: standard and military. As you press start, the hour will change from AM to PM, noted by an "A" or a "P" in the top right. When you get through 24 hours, the watch will change to military time and an "H" will be displayed instead of "A" or "P." Keep pressing start to go through another 24-hour cycle and it will revert back to standard time.
  • 6 Press the reset button to switch to the date, starting with the month, and press start to change it.
  • 7 Press reset one last time to switch from month to the day, and again press the start button to switch days.
  • 8 Press the mode button to finish the changes.

    Screen goes blank and it says chg in small letters on the right lower side


    Actually, "chg" means "change" in this case. Since this is a solar watch, it is not necessary to change the battery. I let my watch sit in the dark for a few months and I came back to the same screen when I dug it out of a drawer. Simply allow the solar cells to get some light to recharge. I left the watch under a lamp overnight because I needed a stopwatch in the morning, and it was charged by the time I woke up. Also, this watch has a power saver function you can turn on and off. If the watch is left in the dark for about an hour, the screen will turn off but the normal functions will continue in order to save power..

    I HAVE A MENS FOSSIL WATCH WITH A SOUTH CAROLINA GAMECOCKS LOGO IN THE CENTER OF THE WATCH.I USED TO BE ABLE TO SET THE WATCH SO THE LOGO EITHER BLINKS PERIODICALLY OR THE LOGO CAN BE SET TO REMAIN ON...


    Did you check the batteries. That watch has one battery for the time, and two for the logo display. After you put new batteries in you also will have to probibly short-curcit the battery, it will tell you if you have to on the back inside case. If this dosn't work send to the company, they have a really good warrenty. Good Luck!!!

    Screen goes blank


    I put a new CR2025 battery in my T5e671 Timex and it solved the problem.
    The screen no longer goes blank at any time.
    PS:Timex manual says "remove battery strap" to replace the battery.
    But it doesn't say HOW.-& I couldn't google an answer to that.
    Here is how:
    The metal strap goes across the middle of the battery and then goes over the edge of it on both sides.
    At both edges the metal strap goes over a nylon tab.
    One of those nylon tabs is notched, if you put the end of a paperclip in the notch, you can release the metal strap edge that runs under it.
