Battery replacement for a G-shock.

I have a g-shock that died. I replaced the battery but got nothing. On the back of the case are the following numbers, 2163(in a box) followed by DW 9050... IN THE WATCH WERE THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS:( AFTER BATTERY REPLACEMENT, CONTACT AC WITH BATTERY+ USING TWEEZERS. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT THE CONTACT WITH AC MEANS. DO I HAVE TO REMOVE THE BATTERY AGAIN TO DO THIS?

    When you open the back there is a tiny spring that connects the watch to the back plate. The back plate contains the Piezo speaker for the alarm. If the spring is lost or not making contact with the back plate then your alarm will not sound.

The reset trick works with other Casio Alarm Chrono digital watches, such as my old Model W-720, as well. After the new lithium coil cell is installed and secured with the spring clip, the watch may show random segments in the LCD display or may simply be blank. Insert a sewing needle, paper clip, or blade of a small jeweler's screwdriver into the hole on the back of the movement stamped "AC" (All Clear) to momentarily connect the gold plated contact at the bottom of the hole to the stainless steel battery clip. The battery clip in most such Casio watches is connected to the "+" terminal of the coin cell. This will reset the CMOS chip and it should start up with the watch displaying 12:00 and the date at 1-1. Then, use the control buttons to set the time and date in the normal fashion.

It means you need to "short" the watch for it to strat back up.

Thanks guys, the two solutions above worked with a Casio TRT-500. I have to play with a few exposed contacts to get the right connection as the AC was not properly marked. Saved me the cost of a new watch!

Take a paper clip put one end of it into a hole labeled AC and the other end labeled ground (gnd or -) (not + as stated in your post). You need to externally complete the circuit before the watch display will turn on. Also watch how you install the back plate. It may only go in one direction (to complete circuits for some of the switches).
Good luck

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.

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 expedition compass battery replacement?


hi
i am not an expert in this particular case but i followed theses below steps . here are they.....

Unscrew the case back with a case back tool (aka Jaxa wrench) which engages
the notches in the case back. I'm assuming the watch has a screw back - if
it has notches it does. Pop out the old battery.

In some watches you have to
unscrew a clip but in most the battery pops right out. Examine movement for
evidence of battery leakage or other damage. Carefully clear away any crud
at the edge of the case - the tiniest metal shaving will short out the coil.
Install new battery of same type. Handle new battery with non-metal tweezers
or rubber gloves, never bare fingers. Inspect case back gasket or preferably
just replace it with new o-ring of same size. Gasket should be lubricated
with silicone grease. Reinstall case back using wrench. If you are
concerned with water resistance the watch needs to be tested in a pressure
test machine. I'm sure the pros have more tips but this should suffice for a
Timex where it would not be a big loss to damage or break the watch.

i hope you can successfully replace the battery
thank you

I had the battery in my Casio G Shock DW 6800 replaced. Since then none of the beeps or alarms have worked. Is there a reset button he didn't press?


There is a reset button inside your watch, but I don't think that is the problem. Most likely, there is a spring that makes contact to the watch and the back of your watch case, and it fell out by the person replacing your battery. I would definitely go back to the place where you had the battery installed, and have them take care of the problem buy ordering you a new spring or have them pay for you to send it to Casio.
