Do not lay the tweezers across any contacts as you may damage the watch.
First you need to examine your watch movement and find an AC point (contact). It is embedded on movement. Use an eyeglass, as the writings can be very tiny.
When found, touch an AC point with one arm of tweezers and battery+ with another arm simultaneously.
Some watches needs to do that twice, so, to be sure, do that twice.
If you are not comfortable with tweezers, you can use a thin wire, connecting one end of the wire to AC point and another to battery+.
Each shortcut should last for 3 seconds.

Do not forget to rate, please.

My instructions on the inside of the case state: "After battery replacement contact AC with battery (+) using tweezers." What does this mean and what is the "AC"


If you look closely at the chassis of the watch, you should see the letters "AC" stamped next to the battery.

The instruction means connect the battery case to this. (I think that tweezers are quoted since they are the most likely thing that users will have to hand).

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.

How do I replace the batteries on my Casio Pathfinder PAG40B-2V watch?


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • 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.

    Battery replacement for a G-shock.


    The reset trick works with other Casio Alarm Chrono digital watches, such as my old Model W-720, as well. After the new lithium coil cell is installed and secured with the spring clip, the watch may show random segments in the LCD display or may simply be blank. Insert a sewing needle, paper clip, or blade of a small jeweler's screwdriver into the hole on the back of the movement stamped "AC" (All Clear) to momentarily connect the gold plated contact at the bottom of the hole to the stainless steel battery clip. The battery clip in most such Casio watches is connected to the "+" terminal of the coin cell. This will reset the CMOS chip and it should start up with the watch displaying 12:00 and the date at 1-1. Then, use the control buttons to set the time and date in the normal fashion.

    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.
