Pulsar v182 (804892)

I have a pulsar solar watch that I purchased in florida three years ago and it has started to stop every few days. The only way I can get it to work is by putting it under a light overnight, then it runs for a few days.
Any Ideas

I have the same watch and the same problem. The solar battery is depleted. You need to recharge the watch like you did when it was new. The instructions can be found through the following link:

Pulsar Chronograph 100 m - The second hand on the left small dial (not the sweep second hand of the stop watch) has begun moving erratically. It appears to move for two counts and pause for three and then...

If your watch is solar powered the second hand performs this characteristic when it's in need of a charge. Try placing your time piece under a bright light for short time or in direct sunlight and see if this helps you with your problem.

yes , though the battery is charged by solar cell it does need to be replaced after awhile. So you can get the battery replaced, if it is the battery .

If its not the battery than the solar cell capacitor can also be replaced.

This should be checked out by a professional watch maker they can test the battery and the charger for you for free.

Some watches do have a battery inside for reserve energy if it is an older watch 10 years it may need a new battery...or the one in it is's hard to say when in doubt just replace the battery since it only costs a few dollars.

Also you can leave it in INDIRECT sunlight for a day and see if that works.

When I started wearing the watch it would stop at least once a day and I would have to pull out the reset time button, fix the time and push the button back in again to get it started. It happened 4 days...

If it's a quartz watch, replace the battery. If it's a mechanical watch, even a "self-winding" model, wind it manually - unless you're very active it needs a manual winding if you don't wear it all the time. If it's more than a few years old it may need cleaning by a watchmaker.

How to replaced a eco drive battery

The ECO series of Citizen's do not require battery replacement, as they are solar powered. If the watch stops due to a long period of non-use, there is a procedure in the manual as well as the Citizen website on how to get it running again. You will have to expose it to light for several hours (but not with lots of heat such as a car dash) to get it running. If you continue to have trouble, you may have a problem with the watch. I bought my wife a ladies ECO drive about 8 years ago and bought one for myself about 2 years ago and have not had a bit of problems with either. They are extremely good watches and it is nice not to have to worry about "when will the battery die?"

You need to expose this watch to sunlight for about 8 hours to let it recharge it's solar cell. Make sure that sunlight is shining directly on the face and not just "kind of" shining on the face. I put it in a window ledge where the sun beats down to make sure it gets the most sunlight possible.

Repeat this for a few days to make sure it's fully charged.

Watch not charging?

Hi there.

There are two types, A kinetic rechargable one, and a solar one.

Just check it is the solar one!

Try wearing it for a day and see if there is any change at all.

If it does nothing, there may be a fault with the rechargable battery. If so , it is cost effective to have this repaired.
