SOURCE: hourly alarm keeps going off, despite no alarm symbol showing

If the 2 dots (colon) on your time display are flashing you need to press START/STOP. I have had this problem for ages and it's been driving me mad, but just re-read the instructions for the 100th time and spotted it - it's the last sentence in the SET TIME-DATE section.
Hope that helps!

got a sea pathfinder and just got it back after sending it away to get batteries replaced. Worked fine for a day or two but now none of the buttons work at all - it is still chugging along keeping the correct time but no buttons including the light works - is there a manual reset procedure without taking the back off?

How di i change the batteries in my Casio Pathfinder 2782


  • Choose a quiet, well-lit room where you can replace the battery in your Casio Pathfinder watch. Prepare a table, desk or other clean, flat surface where you can perform your watch repair. Put down a soft cloth or piece of craft felt to protect the face of your Casio Pathfinder watch from being scratched during the battery installation process.

  • 2

    Set your Casio Pathfinder watch face-down on the soft cloth or craft felt. Use an optical-sized Philips screwdriver to remove the four screws that secure the watch back to the body of the watch. Set the screws aside, but don't lift the watch back.

  • 3

    Slide the watch back off of the body of the watch very slowly. There are three important springs held underneath the watch back; it is essential to remove the watch back slowly to avoid losing them.

  • 4

    Lift the three springs out of your Casio Pathfinder watch using a small pair of metal tweezers. Take note of the length and placement of the springs as you remove them. Set the springs aside with the other disassembled watch components.

  • 5

    Take the black rubber protective disk out of your Casio Pathfinder to reveal an identically-shaped white plastic disk. Remove the white plastic disk and set it and the black rubber disk aside. Use your metal tweezers, if necessary, to lift out the rubber and plastic disks.

  • 6

    Release the battery strap that holds the battery in place in your Casio Pathfinder watch by pushing the battery strap latch to the left. Remove the old battery from your Casio Pathfinder using a pair of small plastic tweezers.

  • 7

    Pick up your replacement watch battery with the small plastic tweezers and insert it into the battery compartment of your Casio Pathfinder watch. Replace the battery strap and push it gently with the tip of your plastic tweezers to snap the latch in place.

  • 8

    Touch the "-" and "AC" terminals on your Casio Pathfinder watch with the tips of your metal tweezers for at least two seconds. This helps ensure that your watch will work properly once reassembled.

  • 9

    Put your Casio Pathfinder back together to complete the new battery installation. Start by replacing the white plastic disk, followed by the protective black rubber disk. Use your small metal tweezers to replace the small watch springs in their correct locations. Replace the back cover of your Casio Pathfinder, insert the four screws and tighten them with your optical-sized Philips screwdriver.

    I have a Casio 1470 pathfinder watch. I did not use it for several years The batteries ran down, have replaced them and now have no display or functions


    mcdevito75 here, I would see the jeweler who installed the new batteries and ask to have the battery install double checked so they are makeing proper contact with the LCD movement. In the meantime you can try to hold down the MODE button for a few seconds and see if the display appears, also if the display screen has turned very dark, your Casio may have had it, as the LCD display could have gone bad. New batteries should bring up a display even after the watch has been stored. Hopefully the display is still a grayish color and the new batteries need re-alignment.

    Sound not working for any alarms after replacing battery on Casio 526. All other functions work.


    The sound board is the touchiest part of watches with sound. This can be subject to all sorts of problems during battery replacement. You can sometimes get all the functions back by "AC"ing the watch but in many cases once it is fried it will have to be replaced.
    To have an "AC" or reset performed you should see a watch maker or technician specializing in watch repair.

    Casio SPF 40 beeper not working after battery change


    There is this little spring which fits in one of the small holes in the watch. When I tested my watch without the spring, there was no beep. With the spring in place the sound worked nice again. So (IMO) apparently the little spring is used as contact between the watch en the "speaker" placed at the back of the watch.

    CASIO SPF40 battery replacement


    "AC" means All Clear. This terminal should be marked somehow. Use a magnifying glass to get a good look at what you are working on. My Casio had an arrow pointing to four copper leads. I used a paper clip to connect the AC terminal (I just picked one of the four) to the + side (usually the "up" side) for a couple seconds and my Casio Sea Pathfinder model 2273 powered right up. See the following link for more guidance.

    Casio illuminator, w-94h


    There is a tiny spring that must make contact with the back cover plate when you screw it back on. If the spring is missing, the piezoelectric buzzer will not work. The tiny spring is located toward the upper right in this photo of a Casio W-94H watch, directly underneath the "C" in CASIO that is etched in the metal. Note that the word CASIO is upside down in the picture, so if you can't see the picture for some reason, the hole for the tiny spring would be directly above the "C" in CASIO.

    How to get casio sea-pathfinder working after replacing batteries


    This certainly put me on the right track,but i found on my pathfinder mod 2271 that the four brass dots located down in the hole were unacessable with standard flat head tweezers so I inserted a small sewing needle and touched one of the brass dots while bridgeing the distance from the needle to the positive (+) surface of one of the four batteries with tweezer legs.
