The light keeps coming on when I move my wrist and draining the battery.

Sounds like the auto-light is on.

Hold down the light button (the one on the band with the G on it) until it beeps to toggle the mode.

My Casio Gw-300 G- Shock watch face intermittently goes blank altogether. Immediately prior, the solar battery shows a full charge, (in addition, the back-light battery is less than a year old). When the...

From your description the solar cell charges the battery and keeps it topped up. I think the rechargeable battery is the problem because when the screen goes blank the battery level drops to low and the LCD blanks out which would explain the intermittent operation of the watch. I think it is worth getting it checked out with an estimate.

My watch is solar powered and keeps flashing low....

Is your watch covered for most of the time that it is being worn?( by sleeves perhaps?).

There must be a lower limit of exposure time required to keep the battery charged (so that it can run overnight), perhaps this requirement is not being met.

On the solar charge watches, they use a chargeable Lithium battery. It is NOT an off the shelf regular battery! It is best to send the watch to the factory service rep in your area for a battery change.

In many of these models the battery is using solder contacts to the circuit board. The person changing the battery will require the original spec battery, and be equiped to do surface type soldering.

When working on this watch, the factory service will change the seals and do a pressure water resistance test. The regular corner watch service store is not equiped to do this type of testing.

Normaly, the battery in solar watches should last more than 5 years. Some are going past 10 years!

sounds like it might not be getting enough sunlight. If it has the solar cell in it tape it to the inside of your window for a weekend. If it doesn't charge up the battery enough to make that bar quit flashing then you may need to have the battery changed.
