Beep and chime will not work

My battery died on my timex ironman watch. i replaced it today (cr2016). now when i set everything, the beep and chime no longer will work. i turn them off, i turn them on, and nothing for the hourly beep nor the alarm. when the battery died, there was a long continuous beep from my watch. could the "speaker" have gotten fried??? Same problem. My battery died months ago. I just replaced it today, but the chime won't work. Ideas? Thanks.

I think there would have been a minute spring coming from the back of the watch module to the backplate of the watch - this spring carried a vibration / beep which echoed off the backplate. Chances are you have damaged this spring during battery change - as i did with my gShock. Basically it's nackered!

    I had the same problem and took off the back plate. I had installed it 180 degrees off. When I reinstalled so the springs lined up with the contact point on the back the watch started beeping again.

My watch also didn't chime after changing the battery. After reading the answer, I open up the watch again and changed the orientation of the back-plate and the beeps and chime worked again.

Evening: I have had my data link for about 3 years. The battery went dead so I went to a watch repair place to have the battery replaced. The watch works great, BUT it doer not beep. All the beeps are...


Same thing happened to me, took watch to watch shop, they changed the battery and the chimes stopped working. Simple fix, the faceplate was put back on wrong. Unscrew the face plate and turn it upside down (or right side up depending on your POV) the circle on the inside of the faceplate will line up with the springs inside the watch and the chimes will start working again. If you have a pair of eyeglasses screwdrivers, like I did, you can do this yourself.

How do i set the hourly chime on the timex ironman flix watch?


Press Mode till you are in Alarm setting
Press and hold split/start button till you hear the double beep. You should also see a small clock icon above the last digit of the seconds... you are all set. Repeat to deactivate hourly chime.

I had the battery replaced by a watch repair person. The watch is working but the beeps are gone. I don't have the manual and I can't figure out how to reset the beeps. Thanks.


They should have reset (AC) the watch when the battery was replaced. If not you should have them do it for you. You should also be sure the watch is resealed and pressure tested to maintain water resistance.
For manuals you can download from the Timex website. The manual will tell you if/how the chimes turn on and off.

Replaced battery- alarm won't chime anymore even though "ON"


I removed the battery myself, and underneath are 2 metal prongs. One was bent down and not touching the battery. I pulled both of them up so they would touch the battery, and now it works fine.

I want to know how to turn on the hourly chime on timex ironman 30 lap watch


I have a Timex Men's Classic Digital Silver-Tone Expansion Band Watch #T78587. To turn the chime on and off on this watch, I press the Start/Stop button on the top right once. This toggles the chime on and off. If you hear a single beep then you have turned it on. If you hear no beep you have turned it off. You can tell the chime setting by looking at the colon seperator between the hours and minutes. If it is flashing then the chime is on and if it is not flashing then the chime is off. This is not explained in my watch manual nor in any of the manuals I downloaded from Timex.com.
