Replaced battery in lorus digital watch, now the alarm won't work

It seemed fairly straight forward, the watch battery had been dead for ages and I finally got round to replacing. It was a case of unscrewing the back cover then unscrewing a plate that held the battery in place, swapping the battery for a new one, then putting the plate back on. I shorted the ac terminal with the positive side of the battery and then put the back cover on again, only to find the alarm beep wasn't working. The alrm test and also when using the stopwatch it would normally beep when pressing the buttons but it doesn't make a sound.

I tried shorting the ac terminal again, this time I kept it shorted for about a minute, and it did work, the time reset, but there was still no sound.

Installed battery in lorus musical watch and nothing.


mcdevito75 here, A quartz mechanism can go bad just like a light bulb, depending on the watches age, wear etc. If your watch was stored for a period of time with a dead battery in it, that dead battery could hve leaked, ruining the mechanism. If your watch worked fine and the battery just went dead, make sure the battery contacts inside the watch are clean, use a Q-tip dipped in Alcohol and gently clean the battery contacts, press the button for the music part of your Lorus and make sure those contacts are clean and are meeting once the button is pressed, this you can see with the back cover off the watch. Makes sure the battery is installed correctly, and that the new battery number is the same as the old battery number. 364 and 371 are popular batteries for Lorus musical watches, even though your new battery is new, it can still be dead, who knows how long it was on the store shelf?? also, double check as some Lorus Musical watches have 2 batteries, 1 battery would be rather large ans sitting just under it"s hold down bracket see, as soon as you remove the back cover, if so, that battery must also be replaced. I have an old Mickey Lorus musical useing a 397 battery just 1 but my Lorus is burnt out. If all this fails, I would look for a small watch repair shop in your area and have them look at the watch for you.

My gold Mickey mouse Lorus watch was opened a part damaged by the person replacing the battery. This is not a digital watch, but has nthe mouse with hands and a second wheel at bottom.


You are probably going to have to look for an identical watch for parts.You might try this site:
http://www.esslinger.com/watchparts.aspx?gclid=COCr3t2F9KUCFcIKKgodgiARnA which is parts for watches. I'd have a look on ebay as well for a watch that is not working. Of course it does depend on the part you are looking for. I am also wondering if the inner parts for another Lorus mickey moue watch might fit, but maybe you don;t wish to change it out from the original.
