Blank face on 2688

My 2688 is about 3 months old now. No problems except occasionally, the face will go blank but comes back after pressing one of the keys. This morning it was blank and I cannot get the display to come back. The word 'charge' is the only thing showing. I have it by a window with sunlight coming in. Any ideas?

My Casio Pathfinder 3070 (B) suddenly went blank and all I see now is a tiny "C" flashing. I put my watch under a light source for several hours but still the same. Can someone help me?

The flashing C indicates the battery level is at 4. (1 is the ideal, and 5 is dead) The manual says that it could take 46 hours under fluorescent light to charge to the next fully functional level. 1-5 hours in varying degrees of sunlight.
My watch was blank and flashing C this morning, but has come back with no help from me, except for random button pushing.

Your battery may indeed be dead. Watches sometimes sit on store shelves for months and even years before you get them. If you have a stuck button it may be the light button and may have prematurely drained your battery. Either way a watchmaker would be able to determine the problem.

From your description the solar cell charges the battery and keeps it topped up. I think the rechargeable battery is the problem because when the screen goes blank the battery level drops to low and the LCD blanks out which would explain the intermittent operation of the watch. I think it is worth getting it checked out with an estimate.

Pulsar NX14 Digital Display gone blank

Do not panic yet - all you need is the battery replacement.
Don't mind that the watch is less than a year old - it may laid in sellers store for a year or so and as the watches are not refitted with the brand new battery at the selling point, they may have underpwered battery much more quicker than you expected
Find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for battery replacement. Your watch will tick as brand new and will last much longer then before.

Do not forget to rate, please.

When I press light buttopn in the middle the display goes blank

This sounds like a simple battery replacement. Depending on how low the battery is usually pressing the light button and the display goes dim or blank is a good indicator of this. Takes a CR1616 battery and be careful of the spring inside and make sure the seal is in the correct position. You will need to touch the AC button and the back of the battery with a pair tweezers for a couple of seconds to reset the watch. Put the case back on and set the watch thru the functions.

Casio 2688 Wave Ceptor - No Display

On the solar charge watches, they use a chargeable Lithium battery. It is NOT an off the shelf regular battery! It is best to send the watch to the factory service rep in your area for a battery change.

In many of these models the battery is using solder contacts to the circuit board. The person changing the battery will require the original spec battery, and be equiped to do surface type soldering.

When working on this watch, the factory service will change the seals and do a pressure water resistance test. The regular corner watch service store is not equiped to do this type of testing.

Normaly, the battery in solar watches should last more than 5 years. Some are going past 10 years!
