Send it back. It should be working whether you press a button or not. Either send it back or take it to get a battery.

SOURCE: Timex indiglo. Indiglo feature died.

The indiglo technology is time limited (it dims over the years with use) and cannot be repaired - have you had the watch a long time? if so, I'm afraid it's time to get a new one. Sorry!

SOURCE: timex watch cover replacment

Align the caseback exactly as it was before you opened it. Make sure thet the groove for stem is in correct position. Lay the napkin on the flat table surface, put the watch on it (dial down) and using both hands and your body weight push the caseback down back in place. Remember: the side of the caseback wich first came out must be last pushed in.
Do not use very soft napkin (towel) as this can brake the glass under the pressure.
If all above described DO NOT work, then there is not enough power in your hands or not enough weight in your body and you will need watchmakers help (he/she will be using special watch press to close the watch).
P.S. Do not get upset if you can not close it; I'm very expierenced watchmaker and very often came across the watches wich I was not able to close without the watch press (even my arms are quite strong and the weight is 95kg).

Do not forget to rate, please.

SOURCE: Timex Sleek stopped beeping when I replaced the battery

I had this problem. I simply flipped the metal plate on the back 180 degrees.

I noticed on the inside of the metal plate a pad about the size of the battery, and guessed from the other notes that this must perform some kind of insulating function. Furthermore, the writing on the outside of the metal plate was not oriented "up"... that is if I was holding the watch in front of me like I was reading it, the writing on the back plate was upside down. Both of these clues led me to believe that the plate had been re-installed wrong. Flipping it around fixed (restored) the beep.

I have a FOSSIL mens wristwatch model # AM3423. I recently had a watch repair person replace the battery. Battery type and charge confirmed. I received the watch used as a gift from a relative who was...


Quartz watches stop working most often for one of three reasons: (1) dead battery; (2) dirt in the gears blocking the train; and (3) a bad crystal. This is the order in which I typically troubleshoot watches.

If the watch isn't working after you change the battery, first check to see that the stem is fully pushed in. A watch movement can shift just enough inside the case that a stem sometimes looks pushed in, but isn't quite in far enough to re-engage the movement. Pull out and push in the stem a few times to see if that changes anything.

Next, assuming that the battery is indeed fine, look closely at the second hand. Is it moving at all, even a tiny bit? Hold the watch up to your ear. Is there any kind of "chunk" sound about once every second? If you can answer "yes" to either of these questions, a speck of dirt has gotten into the movement and is preventing the gears from moving freely. It doesn't take more than a a big spec of dust to cause this. Sometimes, advancing the time will move the gears enough to cause the dirt to fall out. Some watch repair places also have a special machine that spins the hands rapidly to blow out or compact any dirt in the train. It's usually not economically rational to have the movement professionally cleaned beyond this point.

Finally, if you don't hear anything coming from your watch, the battery is good, and the setting stem is pushed firmly and completely into the watch movement, you may have a bad quartz timing crystal. It does happen, and when it does, the only repair is to replace the entire watch movement. Sometimes, that's affordable; sometimes, it just doesn't make sense.

Good luck!

I received a new Avalon watch and when I pulled out the stem to set it the first time the stem came all the way out. Pushing it back in doesn't work. Any suggestions? This was a gift and I have no...


Thanks for contacting FixYa.
That is a very unfortunate situation. Are you sure there is no way to ask the giver for reciept as it may be under original warranty.
Check the manual to see if there is a contact # for Avalon. This is a off brand that I am not familiar with. I would try that first.
If no luck there, you will have to contact a local watchmaker. Small fee to do it, but unfortunate as it is new.
If you need a watchmaker, here is a good one:

The push button at 2 o'clock is START/STOP/RESTART button for chronograph function. Push button at 4 is for RESET (it resets chronograph hand to zero when pushed). Crown at 3 is for time and date setting. When pulled out to first click, it changes the dates by the means of turning it. When pulled out to the second click, it sets the time by turning it.

Surface Watch Model 31819 How do you turn the alarm off?


I have a Surface Watch. Not sure if it's the same model number, but the button set up is the same. Here's what I did:

Hold down the bottom right button. While you're holding it down, press the top right button. My bottom right button doesn't seem to always work, so it made it rather difficult to figure out what has going on.

The best way is to go back to the shop and ask for users manual or ask to set the watch.

Unable to charge battery


This sounds like the battery bneeds replacing. Without a certain amount of charge to maintain the internal chemistry, batteries of this type can fail relatively quickly. Any good jeweller should be able to get you a new battery, if not please post again and we will try to find one for you. Hope this helps :)
