I received watch for x mas and Sat 4/2 it stopped wound it and it stopped again 4/4 is it not getting enough light or do I have a bigger issue. Thanks


Eco-drive watches do not need winding or batteries, so if you are winding it to make it work, then it is not a true Eco-drive watch.

Has stopped completly


Being an Eco drive watch it needs light to make it work. Place under a light source for a few hours an see if this works. If not it will need a new power cell, which is like a rechargeable battery for them. It will need to be purchased from citizen or suitable watch maker

I put a new battery in a citizen navihawk thunderbird watch. How do i progam it now?


an Eco-drive does not have a battery, it has a rechargeable power cell that is charged by light through the face of the watch. If you have replaced this cell you may have damaged the watch. If the cell was not soldered in, replace it and put it under a fluorescent light for a little while (several hours) and it should start working.

Eco-drive watch stop working, after it was in jewelry box for over a year.


First, be sure that the stem is fully pressed in. Pulling out the stem to set the watch stops the action.
The Eco-Drive is still a battery watch. It just has a solar/light powered recharge system built in. The battery will run down after a year of no light. Place the Eco-Drive in bright sunlight for a couple of days in order to recharge the built-in battery. You may recharge the watch in fluorescent light as well, it just takes longer.

My watch stopped working. It's been in a jewelry box for a few months, no exposure to light. What do I do?


Eco-drive watch should work for 1 year out of light. Take it out of the drawer and place in light, and check that the pin on the side is pushed in all the way.

Eco-drives need to be exposed to light every day. To learn how to recharge your watch, you truly need to go to the following Citizen link:

I have a Citizen Eco drive waterproof wrist watch with four buttons and no ''winder'' can I get instructions for this watch


The eco drive means that it charges the battery using artificial light or sunlight, there is no need to wind as the battery never runs out of charge providing you keep it in light.

Works fine when under the light but stops when I wear it.


Your capacitor will needs to be replaced. This usually has to be done about every 5-8 years.

New watch that wont charge


Usually this happens if the watch capacitor (same like battery with the only difference to store energy converted from light) is faulty and can't recharge itself to the needed voltage.
I would not recommend to try to do anything to the watch without aproppriate knowledge as Eco-Drive watches are quite complicated.
The best solution-- Find out your nearest watch repair shop and ask for a new capacitor replacement. Do not panic yet as this is no big deal and can be done quite quickly.
Of course, there can be something else wrong with the watch, but I hope this is capacitor as this usually is the most common with new Eco-Drives.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Condensation in crystal of eco watch


If there is water in the watch, it's going to quit working sooner or later. If sooner, then the watch (at least the back) will have to be opened anyway. If later, then there will likely be some rust that could cause the watch to never work again.

In the meantime, I'd advise putting the watch near some dry heat -- like a radiant room heater, or maybe a hair dryer. Don't "burn it up" trying to dry out the water. You don't want the crystal to melt, etc.

Water in a watch is bad. The best solution would be to have it repaired now.

I hope this helps!

CharlieJ
