Question about Casio Wave Ceptor WV57HA-1AV Wrist Watch
My son's Casio G-Shock 2688 Wave Ceptor watch is 2 months old. This morning the watch display went completely blank. He says he has seen this before, but hitting the light button normally corrected the situation. The only part of the display that seems to be working is the BATTERY ring (and it looks full).
The model 2688 is a solar watch which charges the battery. You should lay the watch(face up) in bright sunlight and that will re-charge the battery. If the watch receives no sunlight, the face and numbers will go blank.

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!
