SOURCE: watch battery replacement

I used a modification of the vise solution. I put a plastic bottle screw cap on either side of the watch (bottle side in) and tightened the vise. I heard a satisfying "pop" and I am on my way. Fred

SOURCE: REMOVE BACK COVER

If caseback is without grooves, it is snap on caseback and you have to insert openers blade under the lip and pry up. Lip is the tiny gap between the case and caseback.
If you have groves in caseback, it is screwdown caseback and you will need special opening tool. Insert the blades in to the grooves and unscrew the caseback.
You can find this tool on eBay.

Rate, please.

I cannot replace the back of a timex 1854 watch. I replaced the battery but the back won't click on


I used a four inch "C" clamp and a large washer about diameter of back, to get my Timex back snapped back on. Place the watch face side down on a flat surface cushioning the crystal with soft rubbery material like shelf liner or anti skid material used under rugs (the kind used to also line tool chest drawers - black). Place the washer between the watch back plate and the "C" clamp screw plate. Align the back plate of the Timex as evenly on watch as possible while gradually tightening the "C" clamp. Keep turning down the "C" clamp ever so slowly until you hear the plate snap back on.

My Timex Indeglo watch does not have any means of opening the watch so I can replace the battery. It kept perfect time when it ran, but now it does not run at all. Is it supposed to be a disposable watch...


  • If you don't already know what size battery you need, you can find this information on the back plate of your watch. Once you have your replacement battery, you will need to open the back of the watch to gain access to the battery compartment. Depending on the watch, the back plate will either screw off or be attached by a few small screws. If attached with screws, you will need a set of precision screwdrivers such as a jewelry or eyeglass kit.

    Inside the battery compartment, you will see the battery is held down by a clip. Carefully remove the clip and eject the battery. Insert the new battery and replace the clip. If the battery clamp indicates you should do so, quickly press the reset button twice. Then reattach the back of the watch. If the watch display remains off after replacing the battery, press all buttons at the same time to reset the display.

    I have a timex ironman watch that I bought about 5 years ago and I need to change the battery and I need to know how to get the back off


    If there is a small indentation on the back plate, insert a very small screwdriver to pry the plate off. Then you'll find your battery.

    If your backplate has 3 indentations, then you'll need a special tool, which sets into all 3 indentations and unscrews the back.

    My suggestions to you is to bring it to any jewelers, even department staore jewelers and they have everything there, they'll even change the battery at no extra costs.

    Hello, I just bought a Timex Acqua with Indiglo


    Depending on when you bought your Timex, you shouldn"t need a battery just yet, your Timex came with a good battery. Look under the stem (winder) for a small piece of plastic that is not allowing the stem to go all the way down, remove that piece of plastic and push the stem down and your Timex will start. Or if your Timex has buttons, look for a tab of plastic on the back cover, this tab of plastic is keeping the battery from (ground) a complete circuit remove this tab of plastic to start your Timex. Changeing the battery while fairly easy, you"d need jewelers screwdrivers and of course the new battery, Best Bet, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for the battery change.

    How do you unlatch the battery of a timex ironman watch. I have the back open now


    You will need to look for any screws holding down a plate over the battery. Sometimes these only need to be loosened and sometimes they have to be removed. Sometimes the plate can be lifter slightly and the battery slide out from underneath. I hope this helps you. Best luck

    No sound


    If you lost the spring, I can't help. But repairs like this SHOULD be done carefully on a mat or table to help contain parts. My Timex watch made no sound after I changed the battery. I was unsure what the internal plastic sheet meant when it set something like short to reset. BUT, as shown elsewhere on this FixYa site, simply turning the back cover 180 degrees restored the sound, and the watch works great again!

    Timex Sleek stopped beeping when I replaced the battery


    This is a common problem when non watch educated people are changing battries themselves.
    The answer is simple: While changing battery and handling the watch you did lost the coil spring. It is so small, you will never notice that the something was dropped.
    Coilspring is the connector to the sound membrane of the watch, transfering microprocessor signals to audible membrane.
    If it's lost, there is no connection between watch movement and audio membrane.
    I suggest that you did change batteries yourself previously and had the same outcome (no sound). Next time you gonna change the battery - make sure you do not turn the watch upside down and if you do - check the movement with eyeglass and make sure all the loose fitted bits are in place.
    To get your both watches fixed visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask for coilspring to be fitted.

    Rate me, please.
