The battery of my XG-55 is down. I tried with several watch repair labs, but they told me that after changing the battery, the watch doesn't start again. Any advice?

When you change the battery on this watch you have to short the circuit board. You need a fine pair of tweezers and you need to look on the circuit board for an arrow or bare spot, put 1 end of the tweezers on that place on the circuit board and the other on the battery at the same time. that should do the trick if the battery was installed correctly and the battery is good.

Is watch dead or is battery dead


If your numbers dim when you push any button, it's probably a battery. If your numbers are off or very faint same problem, battery. Those watches take a 1.50 V cell because of the light, and multi functions. Any decent jewelry store should be able to have you in and out in 10 minutes or sooner.

Good luck, gabe.

Just had a new battery installed in a fila wind master watch. the hr, min and sec hands are spinning and it goes through the start cycle. not able to stop this. also need instructions on how to set time....


Hi, According to your problem first make sure that the battery that you have changed is OK, or try another battery. Your watch need a factory reset. If normal factory reseting doesn't solve your problem then you have to repair the machine.

Hi my xg-55 froze up, how do I fix it


You will need to take this watch in to a local Certified Master Horologist. It will have to be opened and reset from the inside by shorting the appropriate contacts on the movement. It may also require a battery to operate properly, if it has not been replaced in the past 1-2 years.

If you wear this watch in the water, you need to have it pressure tested to ensure its resistance after the procedure. This is properly done with a pressure testing machine that usually is found at Horologist / Watchmaker shops only.

Lacrosse xg 55 - Do I need to replace the battery? When I use the light nothing displays is this a battery issue? How do I change it if it is the problem?


Take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for
the small cost saving in doing it yourself.

Changed battery now it won't come on


Try shorting the battery case to the watch chassis (using a pair of tweezers perhaps).

This seems to be a standard instruction and I think this resets the watch.

I lost my paperwork on where to send my watch for repairs. It needs a new crystal, can you help me? Thanks, Billy


What kind of watch is it? Is it under warrenty? If not, look in your phone book for a watchrepair NOT a jeweler, and most carry alot of crystals ( if it's round) in stock or can order it for you. If you can't find one let me know.

Battery Change on T-Touch


there usually is an AC contact point to reset digital watches. Touching the + and the ac point with a conductive wire usually resets the watch. Not sure about the spring- I'm not going to open my Tissot up unless I have to.
