Resetting sound I had the battery changed in my Timex Ironman 30 Lap watch yesterday. I set the beep and chime sounds back to 'On'. This morning my alarm did not sound and when I use the timer the sound does not work. How can I get my sound back?

    I just had my battery replaced on my casio watch yesterday and i like to have it beep on the hour and also to set the alarm when I go to my break at work.
    Well since having this replaced it no longer beeps. Just wondering if it could be the battery or a bad connection...any answers?

Could the jeweler have inadvertently damaged the beeper in the watch when he changed the battery? I'd tell hime the problem, ask him to restore the sound and see what he says ("oops" is a bad sign).

Beep and chime will not work


I think there would have been a minute spring coming from the back of the watch module to the backplate of the watch - this spring carried a vibration / beep which echoed off the backplate. Chances are you have damaged this spring during battery change - as i did with my gShock. Basically it's nackered!

Timex Sleek stopped beeping when I replaced the battery


This is a common problem when non watch educated people are changing battries themselves.
The answer is simple: While changing battery and handling the watch you did lost the coil spring. It is so small, you will never notice that the something was dropped.
Coilspring is the connector to the sound membrane of the watch, transfering microprocessor signals to audible membrane.
If it's lost, there is no connection between watch movement and audio membrane.
I suggest that you did change batteries yourself previously and had the same outcome (no sound). Next time you gonna change the battery - make sure you do not turn the watch upside down and if you do - check the movement with eyeglass and make sure all the loose fitted bits are in place.
To get your both watches fixed visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask for coilspring to be fitted.

Rate me, please.

I want to know how to turn on the hourly chime on timex ironman 30 lap watch


I have a Timex Men's Classic Digital Silver-Tone Expansion Band Watch #T78587. To turn the chime on and off on this watch, I press the Start/Stop button on the top right once. This toggles the chime on and off. If you hear a single beep then you have turned it on. If you hear no beep you have turned it off. You can tell the chime setting by looking at the colon seperator between the hours and minutes. If it is flashing then the chime is on and if it is not flashing then the chime is off. This is not explained in my watch manual nor in any of the manuals I downloaded from Timex.com.
