Question about Timex Expedition 40141 Wristwatch

1 Answer

Indiglo backlight works, but beep/chimes doesn't

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.

Alarm does not sound


Thank you for the member's advise that...Replace the back cover with the arrow on the back point directly at the stem. The Indiglo backlight, Alarms and Chimes should all work when all the back cover is in the correct position.
If it's at the wrong position of cover it'll not work correctly because the speaker or buzzer of your watch must be attached on the correct case back. Just try to fix it right!

Beep and chime will not work


I think there would have been a minute spring coming from the back of the watch module to the backplate of the watch - this spring carried a vibration / beep which echoed off the backplate. Chances are you have damaged this spring during battery change - as i did with my gShock. Basically it's nackered!

Timex Indiglo WR 30M


to turn off hourly chime on the times wr 30m, simply press (in any mode, i just use the regular clock mode) the start/stop button (top right hand button) once (for about half a second).
  if you don't hear anything, you've turned off the hourly chime!  if you hear two short beeps, you've turned on the hourly chime.    turning the chime off/on is cyclic.  if you press once and hear nothing, it's off.  if you press again, you'll hear two beeps and the hourly chime is now on.    a lot of times that button hits my wrist (i wear it on my left hand) by accident, and that's how the chime turns on and off.  i hope this helps someone.

Timex Expedition Indiglo light no longer works?


Replace the back cover with the arrow pointing directly at the stem. Everything should work correctly with the cover in that position.

Timex Expedition, beeps very quietly and indiglo doesn't work.


To clarify... Replace the cover with the arrow on the back pointing directly at the stem. The Indiglo backlight, alarms and chimes should all work when the back cover is in this position.

I had my battery replaced in my Casio G Shock DW -6800. Since then the beeps and alarms are not working. Is there some sort of reset button he forgot to press?


There are two internal springs that contact the back cover of the watch through an insulator. The alarm nor chime will work if they were not put into their proper locations or were omitted during reassembly.
