    Thanks, I did check all and they seem free, the watch was working fine then just froze. Resetting works fine but unless I can get back to 2000AD I can't use it for anything other than the time (if I reset at midnight. I'll have another prod around - any idea how the contacts with the back face work since the discs are isolated from each other and the case (or if this has anything to do with the problem. The springs are ok.

Indeed the buttons (pushers or pusher contacts) may have been jammed internally. The are a small piece of metal which is pushed my a cylindrcal rod (which you are pushing the outer part of it into the pusher contact).

Sometimes the pusher contact may have come out of alignment. or did you change the battery yourself? did you a/c it properly? (metal tweezer from the a/c with the battery)?

Hope this helps or sheds so light on your situation

How do you "unfreeze" a champion c9 wrist watch?


I am having the same problem. The battery is fine, the seconds are ticking away, but none of the side buttons work. The light doesn't come on and nothing happens with any of the others either. The only thing that did work was pressing all four of the buttons simultaneously, which seemed to totally reset the watch. The problem is it reset but didn't fix the buttons. So now I can't even see the correct time anymore.

Set time on MSP74810W


Instructions for setting an MSP74810W watch.

Press the "Mode." button three times (the "Mode" button is the one next to the lower left of the dial when facing it).The first time you press you'll see the ST, or stop watch function, the second time you'll see the AL, or alarm function, the third time you'll be back to the time of day function but the seconds will be flashing.

Change the flashing seconds digits to read 00 by pressing the "Start" button (the "Start" is the button next to the upper right of the dial when facing it).

-To advance from the flashing seconds' reading to the hour of the day's digit/digits you press the "Reset" button at the lower right of the dial,
-To advance from the flashing hour digit/digits to the minutes digit/digits you again press the "Reset" button,
-To advance from the flashing minutes digit/digits to the month's digit/digits you again press the "Reset" button,
-To advance from the flashing month's digit/digits
to the day of the month's digit/digits you press "Reset,"
To advance from the flashing day of the month's digit/digits to the day of the week's abbreviation you again press "Reset,"
-To advance from the flashing name of the week's abbreviation back to the seconds' of the minute you again press "Reset," and from there you can go through the cycle again.

While the hour of the day with its A[M] or P[M] designation, the minutes of the hour, the month of the year's number, the day of the month's number, or the abbreviation of the day of the week's name is flashing press the "Start" button once, repeatedly, or hold it down to advance the number or letters to their correct designations.

Once all designations are correct push "Mode" so that none of the numbers or letters are flashing. Your watch is now set.

Please clarify use of the 3 smaller dials and how the hands to each are set and reset


The small bottom dial is seconds counter and there is no option to set or reset it as it is part of the main gear train - it just counts the seconds. Top right dial is 1/10 seconds counter and runs only when the chronograph function is engaged. One full circle indicates 1 second. Top left dial is 30 minutes counter and runs only when the chronograph function is engaged. One full circle indicates 30 minutes, two circles = 1 hour. The big centre seconds hand is actually Chronograph hand and runs only when the chrono function is engaged. So, the chronograph hand and two top dials works all together when chrono function is engaged. To start chrono: push upper button once. To stop chrono: push upper button again (once). To return all hands to zero: push lower button once. There is another option: if you already stopped chrono by pushing upper button, but want to continue counting without returning hands to zero, push the upper button once more and the counting will start from the point where it stopped. You can repeat this as many as you wish - it will count on and on, till you will stop it and reset to zero. Fine tuning of chrono hands can be made by pulling the crown half way out and while leaving in this position pushing and holding one of the push buttons (which one - depends on movement caliber). Watch has an tachymeter function as well (big inner ring). Learn how to use it by browsing through my Tips and Tricks- it is explained there. Rate me, please.

Reset button has no impact on S120 - no functions available other than time of day


The S120 is now a fairly old watch. When the function buttons and heart rate cease to function this is generally an indicator that the battery needs to be replaced. The buttons themselves can also become worn out or weak of function, in either case you have a couple of options.

1) send in to a Polar Authorized Service center: This is very important, do not take to a normal watch shop. You need the watch properly resealed and handled correctly as well as you may need parts such as a button return spring they will not have. Plus there is a 90day warranty on Polar's repair. You will also need to send in your chest strap just to make sure that is still functioning properly. Battery repair about $15-, new buttons another $10ish, and a chest strap if needs replacing about $25 or $30-. $50-$60 total if everything needs work, but this is just an estimate.

2) buy a new watch unit. The RS100 (the current replacement) is about $100- and is easier to use with a better chest strap.

Pulled out the stop watch button on my daytona before it was prewound and the whole watch has ceased HELP


The stop watch buttons don't pull out. There are 2 pushbuttons. The upper one starts and stops the timing function and the lower button resets the timing function. The crown has three positions: 1st position is for winding, 2nd for date setting and 3d for time setting. Once things are set wind the watch in position one and it should run. If it does not take it to a watchmaker. You don't want to fool around with such a valuable watch.

Hi there i have bought a second hand tag heuer carrera tachymeter,i dont have a user manual,but cant seem to get the chronograph functions to work ?


Great watch! Operation should be pretty straight forward. The top button starts the chrono and stops it. The bottom button resets it. To calibrate the sweep arm into the right position pull the crown out to the first or second set position and press the start button until the sweep arm is in the start position you desire. This is typically 12:00 or 0.
If your chrono is not working then have the battery checked. If the battery has been recently replaced then make sure the watch doesn't need to be cleared.
I recommend you take this to a watch maker/technician who will be familiar with the service requirements of this model including resealing and pressure testing the watch to be sure it is sealed to its marked water resistance specifications.

Thanks!
