Re: I just repaced my casio watch batteries but i'm
This may sound dumb but make sure the battery is in the correct side up. There should be a + or - symbol on top of the metal piece that snaps over the battery. If that's correct get a pair of tweezers and spread them open, and touch one side to the top of the battery and the other side down inside a little hole with ac marked beside it. That will reset the watch, and your display should come on.

mcdevito75 here, Casio uses an LCD crystal, Liquid Display Crystal, during a battery change any, any un do pressure remopveing or replaceing the battery could destroy the LCD. Take my advise, with a casio watch, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for the battery change. I"ve ruined many of my casio watches during battery change.
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.
mcdevito75 here, My best advise is to see how the other 2 springs are situated in the watch, then simply follow suite with the 3rd spring. BE VERY CAREFULL THOUGH AS< ANY OR TOO MUCH RESURE ON THE CASIO DISPLAY WILL RUIN IT. If you can"t find the spot for this spring, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for help, it"s better than ruinning your watch.
mcdevito75 here, Casio watch with the LCD display, any wrong pressure on this display and your Casio is ruined, the liquid display can break very easily. BEST BET, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for this battery change.
I'll post in case somebody still needs this. This is the general
procedure to switch the ATC 1200 from meters to feet. You can also
switch the ATC 1200 (1170) from C to F. This is very helpful if you
change the batteries and the watch gets reset to meters.
Also note, when you pull out the two batteries, you may not get the
watch to come up. This is because of a race condition when the watch
gets power. To fix this, look for the AC mark on the inside of the
watch. Under this marking, in a little space to the left, are two
copper pads. Short this out with a small screw driver to get the watch
to ground zero.
To fix the Metric measurements:
1. Go to the home screen on the watch. This is when the the 3 letter
abbr for the day is at the top. Also, if you cycle the mode button, it
is the screen where the final beep is "high."
2. Then press the "memory" button, which will take the home display to
the data screen. This shows current time, pressure and temperature.
3. Hold down the adjust button, until the set screen comes up.
4. Tab the mode/select button on the watch until you get a flashing C. Then press the memory button to toggle to F.
You can adjust all the measurements from this screen.
You don't say how old the watch is and whether it has always had a display problem. I have seen several watches with weak displays, but generally they are older watches and I suspect the problem involves a corroded contact somewhere in the "movement". You might want to visit the Casio website and download a copy of the manual for your watch. It may say something about the display. If you watchis fairly new it may still be under warranty and again, contact Casio to see what you need to do.
The battery is CTL 1616 and I had the same occurance when I opened up my model Casio model 3043. I needed to use the battery to test my model 2767 and find out if a new battery would bring it back to life (yes, it still lives). After replacing the battey back into my 3043, I jumped the (ac) to (-) and at first the watch would indicate all was well but then it would revert back to "open". I tried over and over to try and get the "open" display to clear but I was not successful. I then thought to go ahead and replace the back on the case to see if the three contact springs would change the display and sure enough, "open" no longer was in the display. The watch works perfectly as before. As for the 2767, as soon as I jumped the (ac) to (-) the "open" display went away. There is only one spring contact to the back case on the 2767 model. Unfortunately I do have an extra spring that fell out when I opened it up and I have no clue as to where it goes. I have not found anyone who can help me on the location for the shorter spring. Any advice would be most helpful.
