Timex IndiGlo Ironman Triathlon - bell stopped working

I just replaced the battery on my Timex IndiGlo Ironman Triathlon and everything works just fine except my alarm bell won't work (the bell won't go off when the count reset reaches zero either). The icon for the bell is visible on the display so I know it on, but no sound comes out.

You have lost the coilspring wich connects the watch mechanics with the speaker integrated in watch caseback. This is why you do not hear any sound but still can see the icon.
Check the area where you made the battery replacement very carefully- you may find that tiny spring. Use the magnet if necessary.
If you can not find it, go to the nearest watchmakers shop and ask to supply the new coilspring.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Either:
1. You replaced the caseback "backwards" (The word "ironman" needs to be on the stem side, the round thing on the inside of the caseback should NOT be over the battery); or like a prior post says:
2. You have lost the coilspring wich connects the watch mechanics with the speaker integrated in watch caseback. This is why you do not hear any sound but still can see the icon.

I had the same problem. The watch back was properly oriented in my case. BUT the contact spot on the case back was worn out. My solution was to cut a tiny piece of foil to cover the worn spot thus allowing the electrical contact again. The beep is back!

Re: Timex Ironman Triathlon 100 Lap Watch No Sound After Battery Replacement

Here's the fix. With the battery in place and the watch functioning (But the screw-on back of the watch off. Duh?) there is an instruction on the flat cap that holds the battery in place: "Press here to reset." (I just fixed mine and I'll be darned if I'm going to mess with it in case I didn't remember the instructions ver batim! ;) What you, me and everyone else has been missing is exactly where the reset "button" is located.

Don't be suckered by simply pushing the red cap. It may click like mine did, but it is not the reset button.

It's no button at all but a little flap of metal, just beside the clasp/latch of the metal cap that holds the battery in place.

Get out the magnifying glass, or the 4.0 readers, a flashlight, and a very tiny diameter (compass/pencil works) piece of metal wire. A large paper clip is too big. Maybe a large sewing needle. It's really itty ***** finiggally (Hope I'm not losing any of you with my technical language...)

Look closely and you will see a stand alone, tiny, tiny! piece of metal that if you push on it, will contact a... contact? on the watch circuit board.

Press the metal contact spring piece to make the contact and that should be it.

Make sure when you replace the screw down cap, that the cap has the circular piece of metal (that acts as the sound board to produce the beep-beep) oriented so that that the itty ***** spring that sticks up from the watch/brains/circuit board, touches it, or no beep-beep!

Hope it helps.
