Question about Timex Expedition 40141 Wristwatch
Replaced batter and beep/chimes stopped working
back cover IS correctly placed -- it is rectangle so it can only on correctly or upside down, inside is a offset circular pad that puts extra pressure on the battery. if the cover is on wrong (upside-down) then the pad doesn't line up with the batter. trust me, the cover is on correctly.
any other ideas for getting the beep/chimes to work again?
There should be a RESET switch right beside the battery slot. It is usually either the 2 pins that allow the battery cover to hinge up or down, or a metallic strip right beside the hinge. You will see the word RESET underneath the metal strip with a small round metal piece right below it. You need to take a small jewelers screwdriver and push the metal strip down to make contact with the small round metal piece. This will reset everything back to working order. You can then go ahead and set the time, date, etc. Sometimes it is necessary to reseat the battery and do the RESET one or two extra times but it should reset. If after all these steps you still can't get your chimes to work you may have to get your watch looked at.
