Timex Expedition digital watch problem

The indiglo button has become very hard to press. It takes a lot of pressure to get the glow on. What should I do to free this button like before.

Re: Timex Expedition digital watch problem

It would be better to know the age of the watch and some of the surrounding events of it's life before offering a suggestion. Is it worn all the time never taken off (shower, swimming, workouts, ?) is it older then 3 yrs old? If your answers to the 2 questions are YES, replacing it is likely what will happen, however if you feel you can manage it, the back can be removed and a small screwdriver (the kind you use for your glasses) can be inserted inside and then free what ever might be causing it to depress hard, if you see some sort of "goop" or object try your best to remove it without touching any of the mechanical parts, as this will only cause more damage. There are some Jewelry stores that change batteries that might have someone there that could just take a look, however ask what their skills are before leaving it, some places must send stuff away, and others can do a quick look without you even leaving it. Remember this is a busy time of year for the Jewelry retailer, they may not want to invest a lot of time if your not going to buy something, wait 3 or 4 weeks go in when they have NOTHING to do and you will likely get better service.

Timex Expedition Compass watch stops randomly.

Some watches have crowns that screw in after being pushed home, is this the case with yours? If it is then that could cause the problem described. (Turn crown clockwise).

I looked at one or two of the Expedition instructions (the are a lot) but couldn't find any mention of a screw in crown.

I suggest that you go to and at the bottom of the page is "manuals/downloads" select this and the "product manuals". Put your watch type in the search box to obtain your manual.

If you are still not able to solve the problem, the I suggest you take it back to a Timex dealer to sort it out.

There is no separate battery for the indiglo,maybe indiglo circuit is lose or defected already,just open the watch and check for lose connection.If happen the circuit is tight and still not working then replace the indiglo circuit.

Hope it may helps you;

While the time is displaying on watch press & hold the set/indiglo or top left button on watch. The seconds should start to flash.

Press the mode or bottom left button until the hour digits start to flash.

Press top right or start/stop button to advance the hour. Then press top left or set/indiglo button to exit set mode.
