Casio 2688 Wave Ceptor - No Display

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).

Any ideas?

Thanks!

    After shaking the watch very hard, the watch powered on. The display buttons are not working correctly, but the unit now shows "charging". Suspect that the unit just needs to charge for a while.

    When the face goes blank I put it in the window for a few days to charge. It never gets to a full charge, then I wear it and it works for 2 days and then goes blank again. Any suggestions?

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!

Oh, one additional thing about my CASIO 'WAVE CEPTOR' watch: After I got (finally) the manual and set up the watch, it set the DIGITAL display to the correct time & date, but the ANALOG display re-set...


You can align the analogue time with the digital time by pressing the mode button until you reach the hand setting position (HS) and then press one of the right hand buttons to change the hand position.

(Check out this with the instructions- it is all there!)

Lost the manual. Son reset watch. I've reset the


go to www.casio.co.uk go to support(methinks??) click on watches and put in the model number (the one you posted) and download the PDF manual relating to your watch (you will need adobe reader free download to read PDFs), this will be the full manual, once you figure it out DST will have to be on, as its summertime of course. ( i bought a wave ceptor for a fiver because the guy who had it didnt know how to recalibrate it after a battery change), a quick gander at the online manual put it right, there shouldnt be a problem setting it up again, good luck
