May have an answer for some of the issues raised here, out of my own experience and the very kind support of Mr. Nasrin of Timex, UK. Briefly, I noticed that the light conversion was OK, but the storage i.e. the electrical connexion with the rechargeable was interrupted. The obvious symptoms were firstly the indication of the power indicator, and the time loss of the analogic display even if the digital seemed to keep some accuracy. Sorry to suggest that, but you must be aware of the possible failure of the energy storage, which might mean ... another watch. The symptom occured in my case after roughly 1 year of full use of the features except the chrono function. If details of my experience are still needed, feel free to ask.

I have this seiko solar chronograph watch for one year and stop working, I tried to charge it with sun light with no success, any idea ?


Replace the battery, the solar part doesn't mean it charges from the sun it has to do with the movement of the arms (I'm not %100 what that means) I just know it doesn't charge by the sun or any other light source.

may be some dust inserted into the watch which prevents you to press the buttons .
another prob might be low battery. put your watch in sun in order to give some power to your solar battery

Is it SOLAR?
I have a Casio Pathfinder, SOLAR, ATOMIC! They have a permanent battery!!!
It must be exposed to the sun occasionally to charge. If yours has nothing on the display, try putting it out in the sun for a day. Put it in a window, sitting on a window sill. Depending on how little charge it has, it may take as long as three days to charge.
Otherwise, the alternative is calling Casio, getting an RMA and sending it to them for a battery replacement.

We bought a sportline solar watch that has a light mode and rerset and st/stp function mode we want to set the time but don't know how? Help please


mcdevito75 here, I see in your question, SOLAR if that means the watch is operated from the sun"s energy, you first have to get the watch going (ticking) before you can set the time, Instead of a Battery your watch has a capacitor that holds onto the sun"s energy and releases it, makeing the watch go (tick). After the watch goes, you need worry about 2 buttons, MODE & SET. Press MODE and see display Flashing, now press set to set each function, (hour, minute etc.) presss MODE after ecah function is set to move on, once all functions are set, press MODE for steady display, also if thew watch is new, look for a small piece of plastic just under the crown, remove that plastic and push crown down to start watch. Hope this helps.

I have a Casio Shock Risist watch (GW-500A) that says "charge" on the display, that is all it shows. Does it need a new battery or what?


this watch requires no battery. It uses solar cells. my watch did this as well. to make the watch functional again my advice is to not wear the watch for one day and place it near a window that gets a lot of sun.

My solar powered 50-lap Ironman died after 1 month of normal use! Now it just stares blankly at me until I press any of the buttons, in which case it goes back to 12:00 and works for a couple of minutes...


I have exactly the same problem with my solar powered Casio watch.
I discussed it with a good jeweler and he explained that when you have sun, the watch 's battery will be charged up. But when the battery's charge is used up it works off a capacitor power source. But if the capacitor is defective(no available backup power) you then end up with a blank display. And it'll display the default settings(12:00) for a while only.
You can have a jeweler change the capacitor to get it working again.
For my $100+ watch, it'll cost me about $25 to replace the capacitor.
But for yours, the watch may not have cost that much and therefore
be hard to justify that cost.
I hope the explanation was not too technical for you. Good Luck.
