Buttons don't work after reassembling

My son jumped in a lake and somehow, water got into the watch. I took it apart to let it dry out. Got it to work again, but the buttons don't work. There is a seal still inside.. there are 2 small springs that fell out from I don't know where and 2 other springs that are soldered to the circuit board. Anyone know what I did wrong?

Hi, the buttons B & C are jammed on my Seiko 7T92 wrist watch. Is there a lubricant or substance I can use without effecting the watch to free these buttons?


With Seiko, the best thing is to send it to Seiko for service. They will clean it and replace all the gaskets on the buttons, and pressure test it.

If you want to try yourself. It is waterproof, yes? Soak for a couple of hours in warm soapy water. Lift out, dry, and try the buttons. If they are now free, spray with Jigaloo, which is a dry silicone spray and work into the buttons.

I have water/condensation in the watch.


  • Decide whether the risk of possibly damaging the watch is worth attempting a do-it-yourself fix. If the watch is expensive, you may want to have a professional repair it rather than risk damaging the watch or invalidating the manufacturer's warranty.
  • Step 2 Lay the watch in a dry place in sunlight and see if the water evaporates on its own. Put a piece of soft, absorbent cloth such as a towel under the watch. If the water inside the watch face is only a fine film of condensation that clears on its own after a short time, you probably do not need to do anything else.
  • Step 3 Seal the watch in a plastic bag filled with unopened packets of silica gel desiccant. These are the packets that come in shoe boxes and other packaged items. You can also use dry rice instead of the silica gel packets. Leave the bag somewhere warm and dry for a few days. The silica gel packets or rice can help draw out the water from inside the watch.
  • Step 4 Direct a fan at the watch or use a hair dryer on the lowest heat setting to blow air on the watch. Alternatively, if you can safely leave the watch on top of a low heat source such as a floor vent or radiator, this can help evaporate the water from inside the watch.
  • Step 5 Obtain the appropriate watch repair supplies. If you need to purchase tools, look for these at a watch repair shop or at a jewelry store. You can also find watch repair tools online. You may need small, fine-tipped screwdrivers and watch openers and closers.
  • Step 6 Take off the back of the watch, as if you were changing the battery. Use care not to scratch or damage any of the mechanisms such as the coil or stem. Let the watch dry thoroughly in the open air until there is no trace of moisture. Reassemble the watch once it is dry and press the seal firmly back into place. If the seal does not fit tightly, you may need to replace it

  • Hope this helps!!

    You will have to open your watch, because the contacts or contact springs are not stiff enough, so, you need to make them stiffer.
    Do as follows:
    1) Open your watch caseback
    2) Extract the movement (carefully and using tweezers), do not touch dial with fingers,
    3)Take small brush and lighter fluid (ZIPPO) and clean all pushbuttons in case from inside and out pushing them rapidly, then use dust blower to dry the fluid out,
    4)On the movement you will see contacts corresponding to each pushbutton on the case. Use needle or sharp metal pin to clean (scrape) off any visible residue from these contacts till they are shiny.
    5)Pull all contacts on movement sligtly outwards using tweezers but be careful not to brake. This will make them stiffer.
    6)Reassemble the watch and the problem should be sorted.
    Do not forget to rate, please.

    Replace the back cover with the arrow pointing directly at the stem. Everything should work correctly with the cover in that position.
