How to remove the metalbattery support from casio data bank watch

The battery is held in place by a metal cover that has no screws to remove it. If I try to pry it off, from the sides, I'm concerned I may damage the support.
How do I get the battery cover off?

The cover is removed by prying, - there should be a small notch on the back, just be careful!

Had a new battery fitted but now cannot set time. B and D buttons do not operate. How do I fix it


It may be that the watch needs to be cleared after fitting the battery.Open the back of the watch and you should see a very small hole marked AC, using metal tweezers or similar, connect the AC to the metal side of the watch, this may clear the system and you should be able to set the time.
Regards,
JB.

How do I change the WATCH battery?


With very small and flat bladed screw driver you pry the back cover off and the battery will be right there. Remove and replace.

Some watches have little screws to hold the plate in place and you work on those instead to do the deed.

How to change battery watche


Remove the back cover of the watch. You probably do not need a special tool to do this. The battery is likely right on top, held by a metal clip. Note the "polarity" and orientation of the battery, i.e., which end is up (take a picture, if necessary). Carefully remove the battery by gently prying up the clip that holds it in place. The battery type is engraved on it, and you will need to get a replacement of the same type or an exact equivalent. You could purchase one on-line or from Radio Shack.

With the replacement battery in hand, insert it back into its cutout within the watch mechanism, again gently prying up the clip. Make sure it's oriented the same as the original battery. Replace the watch back -- you may need to press down to make it click into place.

How do I replace the battery, in a Casio G-Shock G-2300 9V watch?


Your watch is a solar powered watch and normally you don't need battery change .Nevertheless,if (as it is an old Casio model),you are convinced that battery is the cause of your problems,then replace.
1) You have to be absolutely sure that you are able to carry out the procedure.
2) IMPORTANT!! Pse note that the specific battery IS NOT an ordinary battery as it is rechargeable.DO NOT TRY TO REPLACE WITH AN ORDINARY ONE.RISK OF EXPLOSION on your wrist.+total damage of the watch.New battery has to be exactly the same with the old one (ID.code).Can be ordered on E-Bay,I suppose.
3)TOOLS:Watchmakers screw drivers + philips small size screw driver (for backcover screws) + watchmaker tweezers + 2 finger rubber gloves.
Turn the watch upside down and carefully remove the four screws (try not to loose them).Remove the strap if needed.Gently remove the back cover.Pay attention as there must be 1 or 2 tiny springs embeded on the mechanism.Keep them in place and try not to loose them.You have to remove the plastic cover (pay extreme caution to the spring/s) in order to have access to the battery.Unlatch and remove (if needed) the battery holder ( if can be removed-remember the position to put it back correctly).Take out the battery and check for possible leaks.Check the battery compartment cleaness.DO NOT TOUCH WITH BARE FINGERTIPS THE CONTACTS OF THE BATTERY COMPARTMENT.DO NOT TOUCH THE NEW BATTERY ON BOTH SIDES WITH BARE FINGERTIPS.Use the finger gloves.Put the new battery in place (do not force) and secure back the battery lamina holder.There is a AC(All clear-reset) contact on the mechanism.Using the tweezers touch one end on this contact and the other to the metallic body of the mechanism.Lift the watch very carefully(as it is,upside down-without disturbing spring/s) and check if display is activated.By paying much caution put back the plastic cover correctly in position PAYING CAUTION TO THE SPRING/S. Clean up the back cover,gasket,and gasket furrow from dirt as good as possible.Check the gasket condition.Replace if needed.Apply a little amount of special gasket silicon compound all around the gasket,both sides.Put the gasket in place.Put back gently the back cover and screws in position.MAKE SURE TO POSITION THE BACK COVER CORRECTLY(in place and not upside down).Press it gently when in correct position before you screw.CHECK ALL AROUND FOR CORRECT CONTACT. DO NOT SCREW TOO TIGHT,DO NOT FORCE.Screw with fingertips until you meet resistance.
I hope this will help.
BRegards

Where i can replace the battery of my Casio watch,.Casio hunting timer AMW 705


The battery of my Casio 1846 W-71 was dead, so I tried to replace the battery by myself.

First, you need to get a hand on a CR2016 3-volts battery. It could cost you 5$ or 10$, but I got 5 of them for 1.50$ at an electronics discount store...

Get a precision screwdriver, remove the 4 screws. Be careful when you remove the cover, there's a tiny spring. Remember where it is, then remove it. Remove the watch from the shell.

Using a flat mini screwdriver, remove the cover that holds the battery. You'll need to unclip all 4 corners. There are centers to unclip too, not sure if there was 2 or 4 of them.

Remove the battery, place the new one. Clip the battery cover back, and put the watch back in the shell.

I closed the cover. The watch was showing time, buttons were working, but no sound at all. Looked on the Internet, and read that you need to short circuit it.

Look carefully, there is a label "AC" near a small hole. (Inside the hole you'll see the gray spike of a welding). Just touch something metal inside the hole (e.g. the welding spike) and then touch the positive (top) side of the battery. Put the cover back in place, press a button and listen for the beep.

Screw the cover back in place.

I recently changed the battery on my casio 437 watch and now it won't turn on


There is a 437 stamped into the back of the case for one of the two versions (437 and 438) of Casio WR watches, with the 437 being the kind with raised rubbery number buttons. The model no. for the 437, also on the back case is CA-53W, useful for ordering parts (see below). These instructions are for the 437 but should be useful in many cases for other Casio watches, with numbers other than 437 or 438 on the back of the case. For example, the resetting process described in step 5 below appears to be common to many if not all Casio watches. There is no manual on the casio.com website for many watches, including the 437 and 438. There are no instructions for changing the watch battery in the manual for the 437 or 438 either, nor for many if not all Casio watches. If there is a 438 stamped on the back of the case, the chip is the same as on the 437. The buttons on the face of the 438 watch are flat plastic rather than raised and rubbery. The two buttons near the top serve the same function on the 438 watch as the right side buttons on the 437. The left top button on the 438 corresponds to the top right side of case nonindented button on the 437. The right top button on the 438 corresponds to the bottom right side of case lower indented button on the 437. Save time and money by replacing the battery yourself If you send your Casio watch off to have the battery replaced, it will likely cost you about $30 USD. Many jewelers will routinely send a Casio watch off for battery replacement rather than replace the battery themselves, so these instructions may help save you from delays and expense if you do it yourself. Likewise, jewelers may find these instructions useful for satisfying customers by replacing the battery on the spot rather than having to send the watch off to Casio. Materials needed a. 5/64" Phillips head screwdriver (A set of different size screwdrivers in a small black plastic case, including the 5/64" was bought for $1 USD at a local Dollar Tree store in the USA.) b. Watch battery identically numbered to the dead battery on the watch (2016 on 437 case back number) c. Metal tweezers to reset the watch d. Sil glyde gel grease or any other grease, to maintain water resistance f. Toothpick or similar to spread grease in O ring slot g. Ziplock plastic bag or bowl to hold the 4 small screws so they don't get lost Instructions on replacing the battery and resetting the watch 1. Take off 4 back screws, using the 5/64" Phillips head screwdriver. One screw was balky and needed to have the screwdriver handle attached to a vise grip pliars, with the watch held in the other hand and rotated. Putting the screwdriver handle in a vise would also work to stabilize the screwdriver, while turning the watch held in one hand. Set the 4 small screws aside in a ziplock bag or bowl. 2. Remove the red cellophane cover on the battery, held by two tabs cut into the cellophane fitting into a slot on the metal hold down battery strap atop the battery. 3. With a fingernail or toothpick (nothing metal), slide the battery to the side, out from under the metal hold down strap atop the battery. 4. Insert new battery with fingers/fingernails, sliding it into place from the side. The side, with the battery number showing (2016 on 437 case back number) faces outward, just as on the removed battery before it came out. The watch will continue to appear dead, with nothing showing on the display until the electronics are reset in step 5. 5. Reset the electronics by using a pair of metal tweezers to simultaneously touch with metal, the outward facing side of the battery, and the brass terminal in an indentation in the plastic about 4 o'clock and about 1/8" outside the battery diameter. To aid in orientation, there is a barely visible small AC (presumably meaning "all clear") pressed into the metal near the battery and the indented brass terminal at about 4 o'clock. It may be necessary to tilt the watch in the light so the light strikes the AC so it becomes visible. Verify the display is working. Resetting the time will be in step 11. 6. Reinsert the red cellophane cover removed in step 2. It may be necessary to slide a knife or similar between the strap holding the battery down, and the battery, to make room for the two cellophane tabs to be inserted in a small air space between the strap and the battery. (When installed, the cellophane tabs do not prevent current from flowing between the top of the battery and the battery hold down strap.) If you use a knife or other metallic object to open up the strap to battery space to allow entrance of the cellophane tabs, take care not to short the battery against metal parts of the watch other than the hold down strap. Quickly glance to see make sure the display is still working after the cellophane is back in place. If display not working, repeat steps 2, 5 and 6 (remove cellophane, reset watch, reinstall cellophane). 7. Remove the rectangular O ring from the case back removed in step 1, or the case, and coat it with Sil Glyde silicone gel grease or similar, to retain water resistance. White grease or any grease should also work. Set the coated O ring on the inside of the metal case back removed in step 1. The O ring will eventually mate back with the O ring slot in the plastic case. 8. Using a toothpick or similar, coat the rectangular O ring slot in the plastic case with the same grease used to coat the O ring in the metal case back, to provide extra water resistance. Grease is nonconductive, so there should be no damage from shorting if some of the grease gets inside the watch. 9. Wipe hands clean and wash hands and/or use plastic gloves to avoid putting too much grease on the outside of the watch. 10. Replace case back removed in step 1. Screw in the 4 removed screws with your 5/64" Phillips head screwdriver.

    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.

    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.

    How to change battery in Casio wave ceptor4305


    If there is no any screws holding that 'metal strap' then carefully check both ends of it. You will notice that the ends (or one end) are snaped over the little plastic hooks. Take pointed tweezers and push that end outwards (away from battery) and the contact (metal strap) will pop out.
    After battery replacement, just push the contact back into place till it fixes.
    If there are screws holding the contact, just undo them.
    Be quick when replacing battery- you have 2 or 3 minutes to do that, otherwise all data will be lost and you will need to reset watch completely.
