How to fix sea pathfinder tough solar SPS-201
If this is the SPS-201 the band is attached so a surfer/sportsman will not have it come off easily. there are stainless steel clasps around the pins and you may have to pry the clasps off and replace the pins which probably can be found at kmart cheap. Bought this watch from thrift for $4 dead. Took battery out checked at .5 volts enough to charge on mini charger. After a short charge replaced and so far it operates fine. Suspect that if discharged too far, from perhaps placing in a drawarer for a while the watch solar charger has trouble detecting + and - poles and charge from my mini charger is just enough to get it going again. I have done this with other batteries. I will have to replace the band retaing pins but that is just about it. Good luck. Suggest when taking apart draw on paper the orientation of band parts and back and tape parts to a piece of paper so as not to lose before reassembly.
