That additional layer actually is the +contact. Take an eyeglass and follow-up all the way to that contact into the movement till you find the small plastic hook (hooks) it is clamped on. Get the fine pointed tweezers and undo the contact by pulling the contact end outwards from the hook. The contact should release the baterry. Memorise the writings on the baterry and buy exactly the same one.

Do not forget to rate, please.

How do I change batteries on a M.Z. Berger AW 213 watch


I know it's been a while since you posted this question, but I just had to do this with mine after it was lost in a drawer for a few years, and I had no luck googling so I had to figure it out for myself.

First, you have to remove the band, but you only need to do this on one end, not both. I did this by twisting the watch body around while holding the cloth/leather portion of the band still, letting the elastic part twist around with the watch body. Then, just use a fingernail to pull on the ridges on one end of one of the pins that are holding the band on; both ends are spring-loaded, so it doesn't matter which. Twist the watch body back around, and you'll now be able to flip it over to expose the back.

Now, take a thin, strong blade (I used a butterknife) and pry off the back plate. There's a tab on the upper right edge of the back plate to make this much easier. Since it probably came off in the process, place the rubber sealant ring back around the edge of the backplate.

Once you have the back plate off, there's a thin metal piece covering the battery that's held on with one scr?w. Remove that with an eyeglass screwdriver or any other similarly-sized Phillips-head screwdriver. There's just a small tab holding the metal piece in place on the other side, so just flip the metal piece up a bit and pull it out. You can now take the battery (a CR2016 3-volt watch battery) right out.

But wait, what's this? Beneath that battery, separated by a small plastic insert, is another, smaller one, a 377/376 1.55-volt watch battery. The 377/376 powers the analog movement, while the CR2016 powers all the digital stuff and the backlight.

Replace both batteries, making sure to place the plastic insert back on top of the 377/376 before putting the CR2016 back in, and follow the steps in reverse to put the watch back together. You may have some difficulty getting the back plate back on, but I just pressed one side in and held it while I tapped the other side down with my fist.

REMOVE WATCH BATTERY


some watches have a rectangular ledge on the back which gets contact with your wrist.. the ledge is about half a centimeter in length and you can use a COIN to twist the ledge until the battery cover gets off and simply remove the battery with any thin hard tool - could even be your nail. and viola. for other watches the screw needs to be removed with the appropriate size

How do you change the battery?


Most digital watches have screws holding the back on, you will have to get a mini phillips screwdriver available in most stores. Remove all four screws, inside there will be a plate over the battery this plate may come up one of two ways, a screw which will require a regular screwdriver not phillips but still very small or the other way is the small metal plate has a tab you lift up you will need a magnifier to see this tab, once you pop it up batter will slide out. The battery will probably be a lithium style battery available at most stores. NOTE: there may be more than one screw that has to be removed on battery plate and sometimes you have to remove one side of watchband to get back off!

How iI open a casio 705 woman watch?


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
You will need:
  • A jeweler's screwdriver- Either flat head or Philips, depending on the model of watch.
    A cup or small box-This is to hold any screws.
  • How to change a Casio watch battery:
    1. Spread a cloth over your work area The cloth will help you avoid damaging the finish on your watch.
    2. If necessary, remove the watch band Removing the band gives you easier access to the back plate.
    3. Remove the back plate For some models this means using a screwdriver to gently pry it open, and others require removing screws. Keep small screws in a container to avoid losing them!
    4. Take note of the rubber seal Sometimes they need to be reinstalled in the same orientation. You might even want to use a marker to make a small "match mark" before removing it.
    5. Locate the battery It looks like a small metal button.
    6. Remove the battery You might need to loosen (not remove) a small screw and slide a latch out of the way. For other models, it's as simple as popping open a strap that is stretched across the cell.
    7. Install the new battery Make sure it's in the same orientation as the old one. They usually go in with the positive (+) side down.
    8. Perform a reset Do this by touching one tip of the tweezers to the AC contact, inside the watch, and the other tip to the back of the watch battery.
    9. Make sure the watch is working properly Carefully lift the watch to do this. Don't turn it over or the watch movement might fall out.
    10. Reassemble and seal the watch Perform steps one through four in reverse order to reassemble your watch.
    Best regards. Jewel

    We cannot remove the back plate and there are no screws. The person who sold us the battery was unable to remove the plate, also. HELP!


    Thank you for contacting FixYa.
    I am not 100% sure of the back of this watch, but since it has no screws I can assume it just has a snap-style back.
    Locate a very small tab (or recessed area) on the edge of the back cover. This is the access point for removal. You can find this sometimes by running your fingernail around the back rim, as this tab or indentation can be hard to see.
  • Pull out the stem, which releases the back on some watches.
  • Get a small flathead screwdriver it needs to be a thin inflexible tip. Use a kitchen knife as a last resort. Wrap the hand you are holding the watch with in a towel or protect your hand in some manner so you don't injure yourself if the screwdriver/knife slips.
  • Very carefully slide the blade under the tiny metal protrusion on the back cover (or across the length of the recessed area, depending on which type of cover your watch has). Do not attempt to insert the point of the knife. Use the length of the blade.
  • Get under the tab or recessed area and gently but firmly turn the blade upward, popping the cover off.
  • When you replace the cover, make sure you line up the stem slot on the cover with the stem of the watch.

  • My only other suggestion would be to take to another jeweler who is more experienced then where you went before. This should be an easy battery for someone who is capable.
    Best regards.

    I have a Radio controlled watch manaufactured by Crane & Viceroy. I need to fit a new battery.I have bought a new battery and would like to have a go at fitting it as I have never done this before....


    I haven't seen this watch but I suspect the thin metal peice is the battery retainer. If so look carefully to see if it clips over the module at provably several points. If so gently prise them up to release the retainer. Wipe off new battery and install the correct way up. Replace retainer ensure it is correctly clipped in at all points. Set about recalibration process. If it doesn't have clips perhaps it has screws. If so remove them etc. Pleae rate this solution.

    Removing the back to change battery


    The plastic wrist band doesn't have to be cut away. You need to dislodge the spring-loaded end of the pin from the hole in the plastic with the blade of a sharp thin knife.

    The you proceed to lift one of the 4 snaps to open the cover. The battery is under a white translucent inside cover.

    The original battery was Sony SR621SW.

    Pay attention to the rubber seal ring when putting the watch back together.

    I have a Timex Ironman Triathlon Speed + Distance...


    The Timex Ironman manual and website says to take the watch to a repair facility. Nope! Do it yourself!

    How to replace the battery in a Timex Ironman watch:

    This is easier if you remove one of the rubbery wrist bands.

    1. Take note of the position of the metal back cover. You'll need to reinstall it exactly as you see it in order to hear the alarm.

    2. Remove the four screws that hold the metal back cover, and pry off the cover.

    3. There is a round metal clip that holds the battery in place, covered with a transparent plastic cover which likely says, "Unlatch to remove battery". Within the center of each clip, there's a small opening just large enough for a straight pin to be inserted. A jewelers screwdrive won't work - use a straight pin. Insert a straight pin into the tiny opening at the edge of the clip, and wiggle it. The clip should release. You'll only need to unlatch one side of the battery retaining ring.

    4. Gently pry up the batter retaining clip, then pry up the battery. Insert new battery.

    5. Replace the clip.

    6. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into a slot which has two "electrodes" or pins - they need to be shorted with the screwdriver to reset the watch. Just touch the screwdriver blade across the two pins to short it.

    7. Reinstall the back cover but be sure to position the cover so the alarm sounding place ( a small disc attached to the inside back cover) will reside over the sounding spring.

    8. Insert screws.
