Re: Hour and second hands on my Casio Wave Ceptor watch...

They ususally say leave it alone for about 3-4 minutes and it goes back to time keeping mode. Or - you have "turned it off" a feature to conserve the battery while it sits in you drawer.

Manuals can be downloaded from Casio at

Cannot get time to set correctly. Hands off ~45min Wave Ceptor atomic watch set on home city CHI. Time is off an hr on screen and hands are off about 45min. Cannot get it set correctly.

You should be able to set your "home"city to give you the correct time but if it is an hour out, then it may be giving DST when it shouldn't (or conversely not giving DST when it should).

You can also se the hand to agree with the digital clock. The instructions are too long to write here but if you haven't go the instructions, you can get them by going to the Casio web site.

Enter "", select "support", then watches, accept the termd snd then select "watch manual archive".

Read the required number off the back of your watch and enter it into the search box. Click on "search" to obtain your instructions.

Casio Wave Captor Watch wont set to correct time.

You need to manually adjust or set the hands to the home position as they are not where the watch thinks they should be. This can happen when you bring your watch close to a strong magnetic field. Look in the manual to do this. Afterwards your watch should set to the correct time.

Cant get Casio 4303 to enter receive mode

and go to the section "Adjusting the Home Position"

This is a "calibration" procedure to get the motor of the analog movement back to the home position of 12:00. This worked for me, after replacing the battery.

Note that in this procedure the hour hand does not move separately, but moves with the minute hand. So to get the hour hand to move, you have to let the minute hand spin a number of times until you get the hour hand up to twelve o'clock.
