is the button stuck or non responsive?if it is stuck try and clean around it, if that fails disassemble the unit and clean the housing and buttons reassemble the unit and test it,if it is non responsive then it may be damaged, disassemble the unit and manually press the connector that reacts to that button- if there is no reaction then the unit has malfunctioned, it is normally difficut to repair such damage- take in for repair to a jewelry shop
it probably one of your watch button is stuck that is why you cannot use any of the buttons, try to bring it to timex watch service center. because they have the tools to open and close it. and tell them to lubricate all the buttons so that they will not stuck again. i hope i had been helped you.
Try pulling the crown out and using the reset button to move hands beside the sweep arm. If this doesn't work then you may need to take it to a repair shop that can reset or AC the watch. With a movement as fine as Movado I wouldn't attempt this yourself. If you make a mistake the repair could cost more than the watch. Be sure that you have the watch resealed so it maintains its water resistance.
For the AD0802 watch, press MODE until the standard time appears, then press START/STOP to set the time and date. In that state, press RESET to change the current setting (hold it to scan values) and MODE to move to the next setting (seconds, then hour, minutes, year, month and day of the month in that order). Press START/STOP again to exit time setting mode. At any time while in time-setting mode, you can press the LIGHT button to toggle 24hour time on and off (the 24H indicator will turn on and off to show the current mode).
I contacted both the eBay seller of the watch and the watch maker and what I got back was a complete joke so I figured it out and made my own manual but there doesn't seem to be any way to attach it to this posting.
usually when the watch still works but you cannot make or change any settings and you do not see any reaction or change when you push a button, then it means that one of the buttons is stuck (as if permanently pushed) and the watch will not react to any button until the stuck button is released. Inside the watch there are metal fingers (contact blades) that the buttons actually push, and sometimes one of these finger blades can get stuck even though the button has returned outward. try (with tweasers) to pull on each button to see if it will move outward and allow the watch to start functioning again. If not, then the watch must be opened,and with a fine pin-like probe, each metal finger blade must be tested for proper movement and position. Also, when a battery is replaced, occasionally the housing is not seated correctly when the "movement" is replaced in the housing (if it was removed in the first place), when the cover is back in place, if there is a plastic or metal bezel ring, maybe the ring is not seated correctly. goodluck, Macgivor
Indeed the buttons (pushers or pusher contacts) may have been jammed internally. The are a small piece of metal which is pushed my a cylindrcal rod (which you are pushing the outer part of it into the pusher contact).
Sometimes the pusher contact may have come out of alignment. or did you change the battery yourself? did you a/c it properly? (metal tweezer from the a/c with the battery)?
Hope this helps or sheds so light on your situation
If this has occurred since a battery change then you my need to earth the movement by simply touching a wire from the battery to a hole with brass visible with AC written alongside (this is the case for a casio) alternatively, if not after a battery change....
Remove battery for 10 minutes and stick back in - if the buttons work then hey presto - if not - chuck it in the bin!
Yeah I have the same kind of watch. The three small dials are ornamental and nothing more (this is obvious because their denominations are 60, 60, and 24, instead of something useful like 1-12 month, 1-31 for date, and 7 days of week). The extra two spring buttons are probably the same... nothing but ornamental. You could verify this by taking the back off the watch and seeing for yourself that they probably press nothing at all. Are simply there for maybe some other design where the case is uses,to illuminate the dial or other thing not on the watch. Vivani watches seem to be simple watches that are very ornamental and pretty (i.e., dress watches on the cheap) but completely lacking in features at all.).
