MTG 900 SAYING "CHARGE" AND I'VE BEEN PUTTING


I am assuming you are reading the battery charge correctly. If so you need a new rechargable battery. Special battery so it is a little expensive. Make sure the person knows it is a "rechargable battery" you want. A regular battery will not work properly or recharge.

Mtg 900 comes up charge and says recover. What do i need to do? I tried charging it under a lamp for several hours but that does not last long.


I have a watch which is solar type and the instructions say that several hours of sunlight will charge the battery but lamps need much longer (1 -2 days!), my watch now is left in a drawer.

If you haven't got instructions for your watch, to check what Casio recommend, you can get them on the net.

You can get instructions from the Casio web site.

Go to the casio web site "casio.com".

Select "support" and the "manuals",

Read the number of the back of your watch and enter it into the search box

How to a recharge a citizen eco drive silhouette ladies watch..model number sy2030-54E?


Do you mean, you haven't been wearing that watch but to put it in the drawer for a long time?
If so, to recharge the battery, just put your watch outside or anywhere it can catch the sun ray or day light. After few hours or about a day, the battery has been re-charged and your watch will work.
If it still doesn't work after doing that, buy a new watch. Don't bother to repair the watch or to replace the Eco-Drive battery, because of the cost.

Stem is broken watch cannot be wound


Hi,

An Eco-Drive does not need to be wound. It has a rechargeable battery in it that is recharged by light hitting the dial of the watch.

All Eco-Drives have to be allowed to get light on them to recharge the battery. If they are put in a drawer or covered all the time by shirt sleeves then the battery will drain and they will not work.

If the battery is completely drained then the battery will not be any good and will need replacing by a qualified watchmaker.

Try setting your watch under a light or in a sunny spot with the light shining on the dial. If in the sun light it should take a few hours to charge the battery. If under a light it can take more than 18 hours to fully charge the battery.

But if the charging does not hold then the battery is no longer good and requires replacement by a qualified watchmaker.

Hope this helps,

Ken

It means that the reserve power is getting low and the energy cell needs to be fully recharged by exposing it to light for a period of time outlined in your owner's manual. This may also occur after fully recharging your watch after a complete discharge of the energy cell. If you have fully charged your watch and the second hand continues to move in two second intervals, you need to do an all reset of the watch. For simple analog models, pull the crown out to the time setting position for 30 seconds, then return the crown to the closed position next to the case, then set the time. For multi-function models, please refer to your owners manual.

Citizen Eco Drive watch


The Citizen Eco Drive watches use special recharchable batteries.
I started collecting a couple of watches and I noticed sometimes a jeweler replaces them with an ordinary battery. The watch will work and at the same time it will try to recharge this one until it explodes! In newer models they made it harder to use the non-rechargable ones by adding a special connector or clip to the rechargable battery types.
Okay, if you say your battery goes bad, did you store your watch in a drawer as many people do? It may have lost the charge over time. First thing to try is to leave it on the window sill so the dial is in the sun. It will start ticking, but please leave it out there for 3 days to a week. The seconds hand will tick irregularly in steps of one and two seconds, to show you it wants you to readjust the time, as it knows it has lost time. Adjust the time and it should run smoothly.
The seconds hand should run in single second steps, if it takes steps regularly, but every 3 seconds or so, it tries to tell you that its power level is going down. It will be able to continue for one or two days, but you should get it into the sun more often.
Charging the battery under a lamp is possible, however this heats up the watch and this may reduce battery life.
If you need to know more about the Eco Drive, look for detail tech manuals for all types here: http://www.citizenwatch.com/downloads/tech/tech.htm
Those are great watches as long as you remember it needs light to charge.

What is the proper battery placement or orientation for eco-drive

In newer models they made it harder to use the non-rechargable ones by adding a special connector or clip to the rechargable battery types. If you look into the place where the battery goes, you will see a shiny spot where the metal clip needs to touch. If not sure, find the link to tech docs below.
