Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Offhand, I would say yes to the battery replacement. Though watches are not within my immediate field. This would be based on your post "2-5 minutes behind". As to the "lost signal" after a reset, may I request that you post back the specific model number pls.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Suunto watch keeps resetting itself. Changed

You wouldnt think a whole lot could go wrong with a Suunto battery change. If they had trouble getting the coin access back off and unscrewed the case then the button contacts might be out of line causing your problem. You might also check to be sure that they put the right battery in and that there are no pry marks as sometimes there are problems getting the battery out. If any excessive pressure was placed on the circuit board and it cracked it will need to be replaced.

My son gave me a Anne Kline watch a year ago but it has stopped running. I changed the battery twice but it still runs some and than stop. What do I need to do?


Watch might need a superior or best quality battery that hasn't been in stock for long...

Few modern watches need a new battery every year and most in my experience will last at least a couple of years so the watch is probably faulty and it is a shame you didn't return it while it was under warranty.
A decent jeweller/horologist should be able to check this and advise you.

You should not even be thinking of fixing the watch yourself!
The problem, and the responsibility for remedying it lie solely with the repair man. If your watch was not broken, and only in need of a new battery when you took it in, then the fault is entirely caused by them.
Take it back to them and demand that they re-instate it to good working order.

I recently took my fathers ingersoll duo watch to a repair shop to have new batteries installed unfortunately they were unable to separate it and get inside. could you please tell me how to do this.


I wouldn't advise you to do it yourself, as without special tools and knowledge you will just damage that watch. The best way is to type in your browser: watch repairs + your area. You should find plenty of them there. Contact by phone first and explain what sort of watch you do have and what's needed to do. Ask watch repairer on the phone, because only him/her will be able to understand specific needs. Do not explain to manager or just personell - they are useless. When you are satisfied with the answer over the phone, go there and give your watch for whatever it needs.

After I changed a battery on R0614ZM TERNER watch, the display went berzerck and then blank altogether. Any ideas at all?


Some watches have a "reset" button or combination of buttons that must be pushed to clear all the electronic registries on the watch's little computer after you replace the battery. You might try taking off the watch back and seeing if your watch has this requirement. Even then, it's not always a perfect solution. Last week, I replaced the battery in a watch that had been dead for some time. The watch appeared to come alive again when I put the new battery in, but when I pushed the reset pin (on this movement, it was on the watch movement itself, next to the battery), the entire watch went dead. Nothing I did would wake it up. I removed the battery, waited 30 seconds, then re-inserted the battery. Problem solved; the watch powered up, and I was able to set the time and access all functions again.
On some digital watches from the 1980s, after replacing the batteries, you were supposed to push and hold all the external buttons for a few seconds to reset the watch. I don't think manufacturers still make watches that respond to this, but it is easier to try than taking off the back and re-installing the battery.

Watch new battery installed still wont work


First you have to check if the battery is on full power, as sometimes even brand new batteries are underpowered. Good battery should have 1.54 - 1.57 Volts of charge.
If battery is ok and watch still not working - get the battery out and clean (scrape) all battery related contacts with steel needle untill they are shiny. Use the dust blower to get rid of cmall dirt particles.
Replace the battery. Now the watch should work.
If the watch doesn't work after cleaning contacts, then this is mechanical fault and you will need watchmakers help.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Rado watch stopped working


It sound like a fault. Be careful who looks at it though and what they charge - a complete new quartz movement for most watches, even fancy ones like your don't cost as much as £90 so almost all of what you are charged is labour.
