Casio Telememo 30 I need to change my battery again. I did this once before and seem to remember having to short the watch using a hole in the movement inside the casing. I can't find a source for that...


There are plenty of watches around where you can find writing Shortcut battery and AC. Some writings explain how many times you have to shortcut and for how long as well. Make sure you read exactly what it says and do exactly what it says. Shortcut is needed to restore all watch settings and to make all functions work properly. Shortcut must be done right after replacing watch battery, before any settings. Please note - if you are not quick enough with battery replacement, all previous data from watch memory will be lost. Usual max time for battery replacement is 3 minutes. So, when you decide to replace battery, do it as fast as you can, just make sure do not damage the watch in a rush. When the new battery is in place and in right position, get an eyeglass or magnifying glass and carefully examine watch movement all way around. You should find brass/silver coloured contact with letters AC next to it or even on it. This is exact point for shortcut. Take fine pointed tweezers and touch with one pointed end battery's + and with another end AC contact and hold for 3 seconds. If writing in the watch says Shortcut twice, then do it twice for 3 seconds. When shortcut is done, your watch is ready for use and you can set the desired time, date, month and so on.Hope this will help for everyone who want's to save few quid on watch repairer charges.There are plenty of watches around where you can find writing Shortcut battery and AC.

I am a Jeweler and in Nov. I changed a Movado battery whick I have done for 13 years with out a problem. The customer claims that the stem doesn't work. I had set the time and it was hard to turn. Now...


mcdevito75 here, You don"t really have to be an authorized Movado dealer or repair center to service Movado watches, specially if Movado doesn"t have a warrantee on that particular watch. Also you say the stem was hard to turn, sounds like this particular Movado watch mechanism was starting to fail. The long and short is, you replaced the battery, set the watch and all was well when the customer recieved the watch back also, a Quartz mechanism could give out at anytime, just as a light bulb can. Have the customer come back with the watch if possible, place a drop of oil on the stem, try a replacement battery. Always ley your customers know what you find, and get a history of the watch from the customer before work, Age of watch, how it"s worn and stored etc. this way your covering yourself for any watch liability. You can offer this customer the mentioned re- service or a refund just to keep the customer happy.

I have a pocket watch i bought in paris but the battery ranout and i cant get the back off to get the battery out. what should i do?


Hi Josh, I do apologize for the inconvenience.Please try the below steps which should be helpful for you to remove the back of the watch and also replace the battery.
  1. Flip over your pocket watch. Remove the back of your watch. The back of watches are either screwed on by four small Phillips head screws (unscrew them) or the watch has a press inserted back (slide a thin knife blade under the edge of the back of the watch and pry it off).
    (OR)
    Find the small groove on the back of the watch right above the hinge,place the tip of the screwdriver (the small kind used for the screws in glasses) into the groove and gently pry off the back of the watch.
  2. Remove the circular watch battery out of the back of the watch.
  3. Take the battery to any department store or watch store and purchase a new replacement battery.
  4. Insert the new battery into the back of the watch.
  5. Screw on or push on the back of the watch. Set the watch to the correct time.
The above should be of help for you to have the battery on the pocket watch replaced and have the watch working once again.Best wishes for your effort and thank you for your time and patience.

My diesel watch gets reset everyday dz-7044110703


I have the exact same problem. The watch was working fine up until I had the battery replaced. I went to another watch repair shop (couldn't go to the same one as I had moved to another town) and the chap there explained that with Diesel watches, when the batteries are replaced a small button inside the mechanism must be pressed to reset the settings, if this isn't done then the annoying problem, inflicting our watches, will occur.
My watch worked fine after, for a few days, then it began to reset again; casting doubt on the watch repair man's explanation. I'll go back to see the chap when I have the time, prob next week and keep you chaps posted on anything new.
