I put a new CR2025 battery in my T5e671 Timex and it solved the problem.
The screen no longer goes blank at any time.
PS:Timex manual says "remove battery strap" to replace the battery.
But it doesn't say HOW.-& I couldn't google an answer to that.
Here is how:
The metal strap goes across the middle of the battery and then goes over the edge of it on both sides.
At both edges the metal strap goes over a nylon tab.
One of those nylon tabs is notched, if you put the end of a paperclip in the notch, you can release the metal strap edge that runs under it.

Watch Manual for Sergio Valente model# F-IAGAG


These are operating instructions for an SV F-IAGAG (Sergio Valente) watch.

There are four buttons on the watch.

A: upper left
B: lower left
C: upper right
D: lower right

Pressing A turns on the watch face backlight.

Pressing B changes the mode.

From the normal time display mode, one press of B enters the stopwatch mode. In this mode, pressing C will start the stopwatch time count. Pressing C again will stop the count. Each additional press of C will start/stop the count. While the count is proceeding, pressing D will freeze the display of stopwatch time, yet the count will continue. Pressing D again will cause the display to begin updating with the running count. Each press of D will freeze/unfreeze the display update. When the count is stopped (with a press of C), pressing D will reset the count to zero. From this mode, press B again to return to time display mode.

From the normal time display mode, two presses of B enters the alarm time set mode. In this mode, either the hour or minute portion of the time display will be flashing. That which is flashing can be changed by pressing C. Pressing D will switch to the other portion (hours or minutes). Any time the alarm mode is entered and a change is made, the alarm is set to "on". This is indicated by a check mark in the circle display next to the "9" on the watch face. The alarm can be toggled "on" and "off" from the normal time display mode by holding down button D and pressing button C. Return to the normal time display mode by pressing button B while in the alarm time set mode.

From the normal time display mode, three presses of B enters the time set mode. Upon first entering this mode, the seconds display in the circle near the watch face "3" will be flashing. Pressing button C will reset the seconds to zero. Each press of the D button will advance to a different value field for adjustment. The field of adjustment will be flashing. The sequence of fields is (seconds - minutes - hours - date day - date month - date day). Pressing C will change the value. When adjusting the hours, both 24hr format, and 12hr AM/PM format is available. Each press of button C will advance the hour value. The sequence of 24hr format will be indicated with an "H" in the "seconds" circle (near the watch face "3"). After hour value 24 of the 24hr format, the next hour is a "12" value, with an "A" in the seconds circle. Twelve presses of button C will step through the AM hour values and present an "12" value with a "P" in the seconds circle. Twelve more presses advances through the PM hour values and returns to the 24hr format. Pressing button B will return to time display mode.

Pressing button C while holding down button D will toggle the alarm "on/off" state. The "on" state is indicated with a check mark in the display circle next to the "9" on the watch face.

When I press light buttopn in the middle the display goes blank


This sounds like a simple battery replacement. Depending on how low the battery is usually pressing the light button and the display goes dim or blank is a good indicator of this. Takes a CR1616 battery and be careful of the spring inside and make sure the seal is in the correct position. You will need to touch the AC button and the back of the battery with a pair tweezers for a couple of seconds to reset the watch. Put the case back on and set the watch thru the functions.

Resetting time on relic watches


Press and hold the Mode button - upper left. At first, it will display the stopwatch function. Keep holding until it goes to flashing alarm set mode. Once it starts flashing, release the button and then immediately press it again and release it (do not hold it the second time). Now you are in time set mode. You can change the time, starting with the seconds, by pressing Adjust - upper right. You can move to minutes, hours, day, and date by pressing Alarm - lower right. Pressing Mode again will exit the set function.

How to set watch


I just set the time on mine with these instructions 1) With the watch in the regular time display mode (doesn't matter if 12 hour or military time), depress and hold the lower left hand button (mode button). After a few seconds the watch appears to shift to alarm mode and it is blinking. This puts you into the mode for adjusting the alarm.

2) If you want to adjust time, date, etc rather than alarm time, after you have done step one, simply press that same lower left button again, and then it will put you into the time mode, but this time the time mode is blinking and you can adjust the various components (seconds, minutes, hours) then you can use the upper right hand button to navigate thru seconds, minutes and hours. Then you can change the time with the lower right hand button you can only change the time forward. I hope this helps !!!
