    I bought watch in Guam, but ever since returning to the states in 2007, my watch doesn't receive the correct time. I depress the rec button but it only displays the wrong time. what should i do.

    Battery depleted, was too low to charge. Can't find battery specifed by Casio Manual Module No.2608: Casio battery specified is CTL-1616.

    I did not want to replace with on off brand battery.

    I too have the same issue with the backlight not working at all - whether pressing the button or in the dark by flicking/turning my wrist. The charge/battery indicator is on 'high'. I have replaced the battery once before.

    Thanks!

    The light does not work anymore. Sometimes it will flash but not enough to tell time in low light

    That is just not the case, for me. Have replaced battery and the light does not function. Jeweler did it. He says get a new watch.

Change the battery. This happened with mine along with the battery needing charging more frequently. In my opinion, Casio's assertions that you won't need to change the battery is pretty much of a joke. My jewler concurred.

After changing the battery I can now press the light switch button and the watch works normally.

I suggest you go to "Casio.com", click on "support" and then "contact us" and give them a call.

They should be able to sor tout your problem for you but if your watch is faulty, then I'm sure they will replace it for you.

From your description the solar cell charges the battery and keeps it topped up. I think the rechargeable battery is the problem because when the screen goes blank the battery level drops to low and the LCD blanks out which would explain the intermittent operation of the watch. I think it is worth getting it checked out with an estimate.

There are so many aplications use of the manual will be manditory.

Use the four numbers on the back of your watch and you will have a PDF version of your instruction manual.

I have a Casio Shock Risist watch (GW-500A) that says "charge" on the display, that is all it shows. Does it need a new battery or what?


this watch requires no battery. It uses solar cells. my watch did this as well. to make the watch functional again my advice is to not wear the watch for one day and place it near a window that gets a lot of sun.

Casio G-Shock GW-300 replacement bands


I have a Casio g-shock gw-330a and now find myself again replacing the band. So far, $60 on bands. They last me two or three years. To install the band, take the band and watch to a Jeweler. My local Sears does it for me. $5 for installation; $5 for purchase shipping; $20 for band. $30 every couple of years.
This cost disturbs me.
