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?

Casio gw-500, trying to change the bands, screws keep turning


For G Shock GW500Uthe screws holding the ******** are actually just one pin per strap the screw end is for decoration. To remove just get small headed flat screwdriver and push pin through it is fidely but can be done it took me 10 mins first time. Casio sell straps direct for about 10 pound cheaper than putting into casio dealer .

My Casio Gw-300 G- Shock watch face intermittently goes blank altogether. Immediately prior, the solar battery shows a full charge, (in addition, the back-light battery is less than a year old). When the...


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.

I have a gw-500a and the battery got replaced with a brand new one, but my watch still says charge and it won't let me change the mode or anything. The time is on the screen though. Please help


You have to reset this watch after battery replacement. Using tweezers or something similar you have to touch the AC & - contact on back of watch, for 2 seconds. Hope this helps.

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..

Casio G-Shock GW-300 replacement bands


I have a Casio g-shock gw-330a and now find myself again replacing the band. So far, $60 on bands. They last me two or three years. To install the band, take the band and watch to a Jeweler. My local Sears does it for me. $5 for installation; $5 for purchase shipping; $20 for band. $30 every couple of years.
This cost disturbs me.

Change the battery. This happened with mine along with the battery needing charging more frequently. In my opinion, Casio's assertions that you won't need to change the battery is pretty much of a joke. My jewler concurred.

After changing the battery I can now press the light switch button and the watch works normally.
