Did you check the batteries. That watch has one battery for the time, and two for the logo display. After you put new batteries in you also will have to probibly short-curcit the battery, it will tell you if you have to on the back inside case. If this dosn't work send to the company, they have a really good warrenty. Good Luck!!!

SOURCE: Watch is blank/not charging

I have the same problem. I am not sure, but I think that, over time, the battery gets weak and dosen't hold its charge without exposing it to sunlight for an extended period of time. I think it may be time to change the battery.

Change the capacitor. This is the thing accumulating the energy. As the ordinary batteries, it may go bust, so, all you have to do is to replace it. There is no such a name as power cell in Citizen EcoDrive watches - there are CAPACITOR. Capacitor absorbs the energy from the light sensitive panel(s) and dispenses it in the ordinary battery manner. Advertisements are saying that you will never have to change the battery - that's right, because there are no batteries at all. Instead of battery there are CAPACITOR, but nobody says it will last forever. Rate me, plz.

I have read the instructions for your watch and I found nothing in there that was helpful.

I am having a guess here but perhaps the memory is full (did you see the "Lo mem" warning?

Try downloading the memory to your computer if you can with a blank screen!

As a last resort, go to theri web site and find the "contact us " phone number and ask the maker.

Hi

Try resetting it - it worked for me. First, orient your watch face down (with the watch belt buckle opposite you), the new battery in and latched. Second, on the right side battery hold-down latch you will see a small metal circle (~1 mm diameter) with a black dot in the center. Take a small paper clip and touch this metal pad to the metal battery hold-down latch for about 1 second. This will reset the watch.
Rotate the tiny donut that clips over the battery so it touches the brass spring that is next to the battery, replace the back plate. you can use a small tool to carefully lift the metal contact back up off the contact plate. Also make sure the back of the case is on tight as this also plays a role the electro mechanics of this watch.

Let us know if you want to know something else accept the suggestion.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Can't locate sattelites on golf course


When you try to locate satellites it could take some minutes before the device find enough to calculate the location. Please give it some time. Also make sure the watch is charged.

When I plug in my s1 the watch just turns on instead of going to the charging screen. How do I get the charging screen?


I have had the same problem, but got round it by first powering off the watch, then waiting a minute or so. Then I attach the clip, having made sure I have the pins exactly aligned before I let them touch the contacts. Even so, a slight wriggle might be necessary to get them properly seated. I get it to work one time in three this way - what a daft bit of design!

From your description the solar cell charges the battery and keeps it topped up. I think the rechargeable battery is the problem because when the screen goes blank the battery level drops to low and the LCD blanks out which would explain the intermittent operation of the watch. I think it is worth getting it checked out with an estimate.

You need to contact Garmin and have them replace or repair the watch. If the watch is less than a year old, it will be under warranty. Older than a year it may be a repair or replace only situation, Garmin will have to determine that. It is not unusual for the forerunner series to have rechargeable batteries that die off.

The watch has been working fine and suddenly will


I would recommend having the charger checked for good electrical flow and I would also have the rechargeable battery inside the watch checked. Even capacitors need to be replaced every so often because they just get wore out. Also, be sure that you arent exposing your charger or watch to extreme temperatures as this will cause problems.


If you have trouble finding a shop that can do this you can contact Garmin support directly at:

On the solar charge watches, they use a chargeable Lithium battery. It is NOT an off the shelf regular battery! It is best to send the watch to the factory service rep in your area for a battery change.

In many of these models the battery is using solder contacts to the circuit board. The person changing the battery will require the original spec battery, and be equiped to do surface type soldering.

When working on this watch, the factory service will change the seals and do a pressure water resistance test. The regular corner watch service store is not equiped to do this type of testing.

Normaly, the battery in solar watches should last more than 5 years. Some are going past 10 years!
