Question about Timex Ironman Watches

1 Answer

My Timex Ironman Triathalon Model T5H581 beeps loudly for about ten seconds at very random intervals. This is embarassing in meetings. How do I get it to stop that.

The watch beeps randomly and loudly for ten seconds or so and I would like it to quit this but nothing seems to work.

SOURCE: Random display resets of TIMEX Ironman Triathalon(100 lap memory)

Hello RLOWE803,

While I was looking for pictures specific to resetting this watch, I came across your post and thought to reply. I recently replaced the batteries on my watch, which I have owned for nearly 7 years. It is an Ironman Triathlon 100 Lap watch. When I replaced the batteries this time, I forgot to reset, in essence reboot the system, by using a metal needle point tweezers to briefly connect the positive side of the battery to the "AC" pad on the small circuit board for at least 2 seconds. I remembered to do this with at all the other times I had replaced the battery and did not have any troubles after it. This time I forgot and now have the same issue you described. I am not sure where the "AC" pad is on the back of the module. But, it should be apparent if I did it correctly in the past.

Give that a try before sending it off to be repair and wasting time, money and trouble.

Good luck,
CAZ

It could have 2 batteries! 1.5 volt for analog and lithium for digital! Take it to a reputable watch repair business and let them check! :-)

Good luck!

SOURCE: Timex Expedition Compass watch stops randomly.

Some watches have crowns that screw in after being pushed home, is this the case with yours? If it is then that could cause the problem described. (Turn crown clockwise).

I looked at one or two of the Expedition instructions (the are a lot) but couldn't find any mention of a screw in crown.

I suggest that you go to Timex.com and at the bottom of the page is "manuals/downloads" select this and the "product manuals". Put your watch type in the search box to obtain your manual.

If you are still not able to solve the problem, the I suggest you take it back to a Timex dealer to sort it out.

Timex Sleek stopped beeping when I replaced the battery


This is a common problem when non watch educated people are changing battries themselves.
The answer is simple: While changing battery and handling the watch you did lost the coil spring. It is so small, you will never notice that the something was dropped.
Coilspring is the connector to the sound membrane of the watch, transfering microprocessor signals to audible membrane.
If it's lost, there is no connection between watch movement and audio membrane.
I suggest that you did change batteries yourself previously and had the same outcome (no sound). Next time you gonna change the battery - make sure you do not turn the watch upside down and if you do - check the movement with eyeglass and make sure all the loose fitted bits are in place.
To get your both watches fixed visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask for coilspring to be fitted.

Rate me, please.
