Casio Wave Ceptor 2296 watch battery replacement

I had a jeweler replace my Casio watch battery, after which the screen just said "open" and none of the buttons would work. Another jeweler had no luck either. When I called Casio they told me that the watch has to be sent in every time the battery is replaced---------something about pressurization. I can't believe they would make a watch that costs $20-$30 just to get the battery replaced. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!

Casio is a little backwards with technology. I guess in order to make it water proof they have to "pressurize" it. As silly as it sounds, you have to bring the watch in to Casio or a Casio dealer to get it reset.

If it's a water proof watch or water resistant then yes it might use pressure instead of an O-Ring to seal the watch from letting water inside of it. And if thats the case the watch let water in like a sponge in the current state it is in. If i were you and the watch was that important to me, i would take and send it in. Watch battery's need replacing what every 5-8 years? Over that amount of time the price really isn't too steep.

I replaced the battery in my casio wave ceptor watch and the time and date displayed now is incorrect. How do I set the proper time, or will the watch access the satellite and set itself?


Hello Wifferdil38,

I believe that I've located a manual for your watch which will help you to re-set the time and date. Please click on the following link:

How iI open a casio 705 woman watch?


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
You will need:
  • A jeweler's screwdriver- Either flat head or Philips, depending on the model of watch.
    A cup or small box-This is to hold any screws.
  • How to change a Casio watch battery:
    1. Spread a cloth over your work area The cloth will help you avoid damaging the finish on your watch.
    2. If necessary, remove the watch band Removing the band gives you easier access to the back plate.
    3. Remove the back plate For some models this means using a screwdriver to gently pry it open, and others require removing screws. Keep small screws in a container to avoid losing them!
    4. Take note of the rubber seal Sometimes they need to be reinstalled in the same orientation. You might even want to use a marker to make a small "match mark" before removing it.
    5. Locate the battery It looks like a small metal button.
    6. Remove the battery You might need to loosen (not remove) a small screw and slide a latch out of the way. For other models, it's as simple as popping open a strap that is stretched across the cell.
    7. Install the new battery Make sure it's in the same orientation as the old one. They usually go in with the positive (+) side down.
    8. Perform a reset Do this by touching one tip of the tweezers to the AC contact, inside the watch, and the other tip to the back of the watch battery.
    9. Make sure the watch is working properly Carefully lift the watch to do this. Don't turn it over or the watch movement might fall out.
    10. Reassemble and seal the watch Perform steps one through four in reverse order to reassemble your watch.
    Best regards. Jewel

    Casio g-shock protection model blank face after new battery installed by a jeweler


    What kind of battery did they put in it?? G shocks are powered by a rechargeable solar battery!!! Should not have been replaced unless it was the same type of battery. I would be going back to jeweler and asking them to send your watch to Casio and they pay for the new solar battery. Let me know what happens.
