SOURCE: I had a stem replaced in my Citizen ECO drive mens watch.

Nothing is right here. First of all you have to go back to that watch repair shop and ask for receipt for what was done. Stem itself cost about $3-$5 and the rest is charged for quality workmanship. Yoy must get full description of work done. Watchmaking trade rules are very strict and if there were any other faults than the faulty (broken) stem, they shuld inform you ASAP and explain all the job and extra money involved.
And the most important - no decent watchmaker can return watch to the customer without properly checking it's timekeeping, functions, e.t.c., so, the only one to blame is the company who did repairs.
Copy receipt, write an email and contact Citizen directly, explaining everything to the smallest detail. They shuld give you full support and even return the money if you are lucky enough.

How to a recharge a citizen eco drive silhouette ladies watch..model number sy2030-54E?


Do you mean, you haven't been wearing that watch but to put it in the drawer for a long time?
If so, to recharge the battery, just put your watch outside or anywhere it can catch the sun ray or day light. After few hours or about a day, the battery has been re-charged and your watch will work.
If it still doesn't work after doing that, buy a new watch. Don't bother to repair the watch or to replace the Eco-Drive battery, because of the cost.

Wath stopped


Eco-Drive powered watches can be finicky. They need a LOT of sun to initially charge the power cell, and then some strong light each day to maintain them charged. Put the watch in the window for a few days to see if it comes to life, if it does not the power cell may need replacement. Some of the earlier Eco-Drives used a capacitor that does not like to be run down from not being exposed to enough light, and will fail sooner than the newer power cells.

How to replaced a eco drive battery


The ECO series of Citizen's do not require battery replacement, as they are solar powered. If the watch stops due to a long period of non-use, there is a procedure in the manual as well as the Citizen website on how to get it running again. You will have to expose it to light for several hours (but not with lots of heat such as a car dash) to get it running. If you continue to have trouble, you may have a problem with the watch. I bought my wife a ladies ECO drive about 8 years ago and bought one for myself about 2 years ago and have not had a bit of problems with either. They are extremely good watches and it is nice not to have to worry about "when will the battery die?"

Citizen Eco Drive


The Citizen Eco Drive watches use special recharchable batteries.
I started collecting a couple of watches and I noticed sometimes a jeweler replaces them with an ordinary battery. The watch will work and at the same time it will try to recharge this one until it explodes! In newer models they made it harder to use the non-rechargable ones by adding a special connector or clip to the rechargable battery types.
Okay,you stored your watch in a drawer as many people do? It may have lost the charge over time. First thing to try is to leave it on the window sill so the dial is in the sun. It will start ticking, but please leave it out there for 3 days to a week. The seconds hand will tick irregularly in steps of one and two seconds, to show you it wants you to readjust the time, as it knows it has lost time. Adjust the time and it should run smoothly.
The seconds hand should run in single second steps, if it takes steps regularly, but every 3 seconds or so, it tries to tell you that its power level is going down. It will be able to continue for one or two days, but you should get it into the sun more often.
Charging the battery under a lamp is possible, however this heats up the watch and this may reduce battery life.
If you need to know more about the Eco Drive, look for detail tech manuals for all types here: http://www.citizenwatch.com/downloads/tech/tech.htm
Those are great watches as long as you remember it needs light to charge. Be sure to ask the watch repair man if he knows the eco drive uses special battery, if not sure, find another watch repair man before he kills your watch ;)

Constant watch problem


The Citizen Eco Drive watches use special recharchable batteries. Not all watch repair man understand this. If you are unlucky they tried to replace the battery with an ordinary one. Replaced crystal could be 2 things, logical is the timing quartz crystal was replaced by swapping out most of the electronics, second is they talked about the glass being replaced - I do not expect so. Call or email Citizen and explain; keep the watch handy so you can read them the numbers from the back.

Okay, if you say your battery goes bad, or watch does not run okay? It may have lost the charge over time. First thing to try is to leave it on the window sill so the dial is in the sun.

Charging the battery under a lamp is possible, however this heats up the watch and this may reduce battery life. As long as the watch keeps running I believe it should keep good time. It is quartz anyway. If this is not the case, and a good sunbath does not help, the mechanism could be running heavy, possibly due to overheating the watch; no help there...

A "non" fully charged watch will sometimes "jump" seconds rather than indicate one second intervals. Charging these small solar panel watches takes forever, in BRIGHT sun. Have you tried leaving it outside, in the sunlight, for at least 12 hours?

Restarting my Citizen Promaster Eco Divers 200 Watch


Since it's eco-drive you can just wear it for a few hours and it should self-wind. The problem is that when it sits still for more than a few days it winds down. It gets its power from the natural movement of your wrist as you walk around.

Once it starts ticking again you'll just have to set the time correctly.
