Rado Diastar 196.0387.3 Ceramic No alarm Beep after Battery repla

The Alarm is only to hear if pressing watch to ear and than its very, very week. Must there a elctric connection between the bottom where the round piezo plate is attched and some point from the inner body??? May be a spring is lost which makes a connection or it may als be a inductive transmission from a small black device in the body to the bottom plate?

Most likely, you have lost (or bent) a very tiny spring that is used to complete the circuit.

The piezo plate is bonded to the rear case; a part of the arm that retains the battery reaches up and contacts the rear case when the rear case is attached. The other half of the circuit, from the center-portion of the piezo crystal to the circuit board, is made via a tiny tiny tiny spring. (See a picture of a Casio contact spring doing the same job here.) In the Rado Multis that I have looked at, that spring rests loosely on a "pin" (and is therefore very easy to lose after the back is no longer holding it in place.)

Look for a cutout in the backplate of the watch mechanism, inside which is a gold pin or post that doesn't quite reach past the backplate. There's supposed to be a spring, resting loosely on this post, which (when the back is attached) reaches past the backplate to make contact with the center terminal area of the piezo.

If you're lucky, it's still in there, and bent or something. If it's missing entirely, you'll have to search out a replacement, or a watch repair that has them.

Lost the beep on my timex watch alarm


Try taking the back off and orientating it the other way (i.e. turn top for bottom). You don't have to screw it down to see if this will work. As soon as the back clicks in you will be able to hear beeps as you press the buttons

Rado watch stopped working


It sound like a fault. Be careful who looks at it though and what they charge - a complete new quartz movement for most watches, even fancy ones like your don't cost as much as £90 so almost all of what you are charged is labour.

I have a Rado DiaStar watch (with digital display), and the hands are out of synch with the digital display. Is there a way of adjusting the hands independently of the display? or must it be sent back to...


Hears how i do my watch, i have the same watch as you.Just make sure nothing is displayed on the clock face by turning the winder, ie NO digital time, NO daul time, NO alarm, NO stop watch etc, Pull out the winder(crown) and adjust the hands to the time you require by spinning the winder.(Gentley for mins and fast for hours) The digital clock will display wilst doing this, but not change the time.handy if you want to sync both clocks.Push the winder back in at the time to sync and the digital display will go out, then spin the winder again if you want to display the digital features. I hope this helps, please post if it does, Maurice Chevalier- Herts
