Question about Casio Watches

Open Question

I have had a GW-4000 1A3ER for approx 1 year, and recently it was left in a drawer in darkness for about a week. I have previously left it for much longer periods. I fully expected it to sync when put back into sunlight, however nothing will work. Every hand/dial is set at either zero or 12 o clock and none of the buttons have any effect. No matter which buttons I press or hold down, nothing happens. It is as though the watch is completely frozen. Please advise.

SOURCE: analog clock not in sync with digital clock

This problem may be due to your analog hands being improperly zeroed. To find out, try this: 1. Put the watch in chronograph mode by rotating the crowon in its normal position to "chr" 2. Pull out the crown two clicks. This should cause all of the hands to point to zero. If you do this and your minute hand points to 1 o'clock, or five minutes, you will know that this is the problem. If this is the problem, you can can correct it by zeroing the hands as follows: 1. Put the watch in chronograph mode by rotating the crowon in its normal position to "chr" 2. Pull out the crown two clicks. This should cause all of the hands to point to zero, or close to it. You should also notice the letters "HR" in the lefthand digital display. This allows you to move the hour hand by rotating the crown. If the hour hand is not pointing at 12 o'clock, rotate it so that it does. 3. Push the top button once. The letters "MIN" should appear in the lefthand digital display. This allows you to move the minute hand on the large dial, and the minute and hour hands on the small UTC dial. Rotate the crown so that the minute hand points directly to 12 o'clock. 4. Push the top button again. The letters "SEC" should appear in the lefthand digital display. Rotate the crown to point the second hand directly at 12 o'clock. 5. Push the crown back into its normal position. Set the digiatl time and date in your tie zone, and your analog hands should match the digital read-out. If the zeroing of the hands is not the problem, I don't know what is wrong with the watch.

SOURCE: Casio GW-1200BA G-Shock

I got the watch repaired about 10 months ago where the battery indicator would show low battery, the hands would show midnight and then after about an hour the watch would be normal. I spent $135 to get the watch repaired at an authorized Casio repair facility in NJ and the technician said that inert gas Casio uses to keep moisture out had leaked out and moisture got inside which basically ruined the electonics. It seems that this watch has design issues. Unfortunately Casio does not stand behind their products. Now the same thing happens again 10 months after being repaired and the hands (analog) show a different time than the digital time.

You need to contact Garmin and have them replace or repair the watch. If the watch is less than a year old, it will be under warranty. Older than a year it may be a repair or replace only situation, Garmin will have to determine that. It is not unusual for the forerunner series to have rechargeable batteries that die off.

B.m.w. geneve 250 watch what are the four small dials for how to operate them denis


If it's the same watch I have, the four dials from right to left are day of week, hours left in the day, date 1-31, and possibly a chronograph (mine makes 2 revolutions/minute). On the case, there are three large knobs on the right and two small flush screw-like objects on left. The large knobs (top to bottom) are month selection, time set, and day of week select. Month and day can be selected by pushing the knob to the desired date. On the left, you will need a fine pen or stylus to press the center. Top to bottom, these two buttons control year and date selection.

GW-1500A Casio has to be sunlight every day otherwise it stops


Hi gregbrands,

If your watch is several years old, I would recommend sending it back to Casio for service and battery replacement. Contrary to what you may hear about solar-powered watches, the rechargeable batteries do not always last for 10-20 years. I've seen some go out in 2-3 years. This is a shorter lifespan than most standard lithium watch batteries.

You may have an authorized Casio service center near you also. If not, contact Casio at the following numbers:

For Repair support in USA at 1-800-706-2534 during regular business hours (currently Monday-Friday 9:00a.m. - 5:00pm EST, Saturday / Sunday 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.) For Technical support in USA at 1-800-435-7732 during regular business hours (currently Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. - 8:00pm EST for all products, Saturday / Sunday 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m)

The cost of your watch well justifies this kind of service, plus, they will assure it remains waterproof up to its specifications.

Let me know if I can help further.

Thanks, Bill

Screen goes blank and it says chg in small letters on the right lower side


Actually, "chg" means "change" in this case. Since this is a solar watch, it is not necessary to change the battery. I let my watch sit in the dark for a few months and I came back to the same screen when I dug it out of a drawer. Simply allow the solar cells to get some light to recharge. I left the watch under a lamp overnight because I needed a stopwatch in the morning, and it was charged by the time I woke up. Also, this watch has a power saver function you can turn on and off. If the watch is left in the dark for about an hour, the screen will turn off but the normal functions will continue in order to save power..

My Casio Gw-300 is not receiving the satelite signal to receive daylight savings time. The display is not showing the satelite dish or any bars in the receiving indicator


I'm having the same problem. It's been working fine for about 4 years and now there are no bars or the picture of the satellite. There is a little "C" or "[" next to where it should be though. Maybe that is some sort of error message? I left it in my window for three days straight to get full days of sunlight and the battery is full but still no signal. Did something happen to the atomic signal carriers? Or is my watch finally dead?

Casio G-Shock GW-300 replacement bands


I have a Casio g-shock gw-330a and now find myself again replacing the band. So far, $60 on bands. They last me two or three years. To install the band, take the band and watch to a Jeweler. My local Sears does it for me. $5 for installation; $5 for purchase shipping; $20 for band. $30 every couple of years.
This cost disturbs me.

Tissot T-Touch Baro way too high


Try to recalibrate the Baro/Altimeter as below:

Certain functions need to be calibrated. The altimeter and the Meteo are tied together. When a customer gets the watch, they should calibrate to either the Meteo or Altimeter. The easiest way to find out the altitude of the nearest airport (you can usually get this on line) and then go to the airport and adjust the watch. This will also calibrate the Meteo.

To calibrate the Altimeter:

1. Activate Crystal
2. Press Altimeter
3. Press and hold top + button until the watch beeps and display flashes.
4. Use + and – buttons to adjust altitude
5. Press center of dial to lock in.

Light


My watch had the same problem and i could never figure out what it was so i just lived with it for a couple of years. then, just recently even when my watch was getting plenty of sun the battery would die in the evening and shut off at night. so i replaced the battery and evrything works great. even the light which leads me to believe the solar panel is just a gimmick. i have an old g-shock watch that i bought in 1989 and it still works and is on the origional battery. my gw 300 is about 5 years old and needed a battery. i guess 5 years on a battery is prety good but i would rather have it last for 19 years like my old one.
