SOURCE: Casio GW300 (2608) battery replacement

Hey all. The charge provided by the solar cells on the watch only really extend the life of the battery. The total run time of a battery depends on how the watch is used... backlight requirements etc. The battery will be depleted and need to be replaced.

Here is a site that has good instructions on how to change the battery in your G-Shock watch.

If you want to ensure you still have a the same water resistance rating, I do suggest that you take it to a watch guy to have it replaced for you. They clean switch contacts also and you keep water resistance rating. Good Luck and vote this as a "FixYa". Cheers

Press MODE until you reach H-S (e.g. A 11:00 with seconds on top)

Press and hold ADJUST for 3 seconds until H-S blinks

Press and hold SEARCH for every movement; you may wanna press LIGHT so the hands will move freely. Press ADJUST again to when desired time was reached

SOURCE: I just replace the battery

Hi, I just encountered the same problem today as I was changing the battery and I found the solution. First make sure when you are changing the battery that the watch stem is pulled out; then after the battery has been replaced, and before you put the gasket and back on you will need to "reset" or "hotwire" the battery ....you are going to likely need a magnifying glass to find a tiny ac symbol on the back of the watch (without the back cover replaced)...just next to the ac symbol is a tiny hole. Take a piece of wire, or in my case I used an unfolded paper clip, and put one end of the wire in the hole and the other end on the back of the battery (the +/positive side should be facing up). Leave the wire in contact with the ac/battery for 5 seconds, then remove. Next replace the rubber gasket, then the back and the screws. Lastly, push in the watch stem. Your watch should now work. I found out through considerable research that almost all digital watches will need that "hotwiring" step performed after the battery is replaced.

You can do it yourself. Unscrew watch caseback and undo the contact on top of battery. Read the writings on battery and buy exactly the same one. Do not mind manufacturers (Casio, Maxell, e.t.c.), just make sure the numbers are the same.
Some watch casebacks can be opened only if the watch band is removed, so, remove it if needed, just don't forget to memorize where every part and screw was fitted. Memorize how the battery is fitted and do not put the new one the other way around as this can damage your watch.
Actually there is nothing difficult - only you have to put everything back exactly the same way as it was. If your watch will be left without battery for more than 3 minutes, you will need to reset your watch after replacing a new battery, but it's easy if you've got users manual.
Good luck.

I have a Casio Wave Captor 4757 WVQ-142E and after the change in time this fall I can't seem to set the time correctly. I am in Paris, so GMT +1, however it is 10:30 and my watch reads 3:03. I have reset...


I sympathize, it took me ages to work this out - I had the same problem having had the battery replaced in my watch which only lasted 18 months...the irony was that my previous watch was still working & set to the correct, time date etc!

The following instructions are for the Casio Wave Ceptor 4757 WVQ-142E, the official Casio instructions are available at the following:

http://www2.casio.co.jp/manual_pdf/wat/en/pdf_search.php?MODULE=4757

For the extra information Casio neglect to tell you in the manual, read the following:

First, the watch needs resetting. To do this you need a watchmaker's screwdriver, remove the back (4 screws - obviously, you do this at your own risk), remove the thin plastic cover to reveal the battery.

On my watch on the battery cover it says to reset the watch, get a pair of tweezers & connect the battery back to the negative (marked -) plate for about 2 seconds, thus forming a circuit.

The watch stops, the screen goes blank for about 30 seconds, replace the plastic cover , back & screws.

Wait until the watch has picked up the correct time signal, the digital part will show the correct local time, the analogue screen won't at this stage.

Set the watch to the desired time zone that you require or HS (Home Setting).

Then press button "C" (bottom left) to scroll through until "HS" is displayed on the screen, then press button B (top right) for about 5 seconds until it flashes "OO" in the screen, then press the A (top left) button down & to reset the analogue time (so all 3 hands are pointing up) to 12 O'clock, it has to be set to 12 so the watch will recalibrate itself, if it is not set to 12 O'clock, it won't work! - sadly Casio don't tell you this bit in the manual....& of course this is really obvious to us mere mortals!

Now that you have aching hands & repetitive strain injury, press the B button (top left) to exit the (watch) hand setting mode & the watch will now wind the hands by itself to the correct analogue time, (or in theory it will, it took three attempts to set my watch).

Yes, for the record Mr Casio, if you hand a watch to someone & tell them to set it to the correct time, they will set it to the current local time (assuming that it is not 12 O'clock) & as opposed to 12 O'clock by default!

This is not rocket science, if your company is able to make & market a radio controlled watch which is in theory accurate to one second in a million years because it is controlled by the Rugby atomic clock, you'd think that the instruction department could write some decent instructions!

Hopefully this solved the problem!

How di i change the batteries in my Casio Pathfinder 2782


  • Choose a quiet, well-lit room where you can replace the battery in your Casio Pathfinder watch. Prepare a table, desk or other clean, flat surface where you can perform your watch repair. Put down a soft cloth or piece of craft felt to protect the face of your Casio Pathfinder watch from being scratched during the battery installation process.

  • 2

    Set your Casio Pathfinder watch face-down on the soft cloth or craft felt. Use an optical-sized Philips screwdriver to remove the four screws that secure the watch back to the body of the watch. Set the screws aside, but don't lift the watch back.

  • 3

    Slide the watch back off of the body of the watch very slowly. There are three important springs held underneath the watch back; it is essential to remove the watch back slowly to avoid losing them.

  • 4

    Lift the three springs out of your Casio Pathfinder watch using a small pair of metal tweezers. Take note of the length and placement of the springs as you remove them. Set the springs aside with the other disassembled watch components.

  • 5

    Take the black rubber protective disk out of your Casio Pathfinder to reveal an identically-shaped white plastic disk. Remove the white plastic disk and set it and the black rubber disk aside. Use your metal tweezers, if necessary, to lift out the rubber and plastic disks.

  • 6

    Release the battery strap that holds the battery in place in your Casio Pathfinder watch by pushing the battery strap latch to the left. Remove the old battery from your Casio Pathfinder using a pair of small plastic tweezers.

  • 7

    Pick up your replacement watch battery with the small plastic tweezers and insert it into the battery compartment of your Casio Pathfinder watch. Replace the battery strap and push it gently with the tip of your plastic tweezers to snap the latch in place.

  • 8

    Touch the "-" and "AC" terminals on your Casio Pathfinder watch with the tips of your metal tweezers for at least two seconds. This helps ensure that your watch will work properly once reassembled.

  • 9

    Put your Casio Pathfinder back together to complete the new battery installation. Start by replacing the white plastic disk, followed by the protective black rubber disk. Use your small metal tweezers to replace the small watch springs in their correct locations. Replace the back cover of your Casio Pathfinder, insert the four screws and tighten them with your optical-sized Philips screwdriver.

    Hour and second hands on my Casio Wave Ceptor watch appear to have frozen


    They ususally say leave it alone for about 3-4 minutes and it goes back to time keeping mode. Or - you have "turned it off" a feature to conserve the battery while it sits in you drawer.

    Casio Altimeter watch, no instructions


    I was just gifted an old casio pathfinder model 1675 with the manual.

    when inserting a new battery.....step #4

    AC (AC CLEAR) touch the AC contact and the battery +(positive) side with metal tweezers for about two seconds.
    Contacting the AC (all clear)is necessary when a new battery is installed to clear the previous memory to avoid erratic display..
    I am going to get a new battery for it soon I want to play with it....and figure out how navigate through the functions.

    oh yah......the pictures are extremly small but the AC contact point is apparently marked? inside the case obviously next to the battery close enough for the needle nose tweezers to reach each contact. I havent unscrewed my case yet, I want to have everything I need at hand like the battery before I dive into this thing. I dont mean to dumb it down, I was trying to keep it simple as the manual is 55 pages and a little confusing. I hope this helps the battery problem. I will try to delve into the reset problem from the other post..each function appears to have a reset option ......maybe crack the case open and try the new battery all clear thing with tweezers...maybe this would reboot so to speak the entire watch , being mine does not work and have only had it in hand for two hours I am pretty clueless, I was looking for how much the watch costs...i didnt relize it was a fairly old model, the new ones with the compass look very cool. anyhow goodluck
