Hi, how long do you keep it under the light for?
Have a look at page 2 on this pdf file from the citizen website for more info on charging times.

Bought jr3090-58L in nov 05. won't charge. watch is dead. what do I do next. It has spent more time in the window than on my wrist.


It sounds like you have had trouble with this from day one, the problem is the solar cells are not charging the battery, or the rechargeable battery is defective. I recommend returning the watch if warranty is still in place.

I have an eco-drive watch. Model EW8XXX/EP4XXX/Cal.No. B023. Is this watch still available & what is the cost?


The manual can be found at http://www.manualslib.com/manual/710956/Citizen-Quartz-Ctz-B8025.html?page=3#manual.
The instructions require studying them close, because after the watch looses power for a long time, under the sun the second hand will move in a special sequence to signal it (1) needs the time to be set, and (2) the internal battery is or is not fully charged. Please read Note(2) of the manual.

My echodrive second hand skips 2 seconds the skips 1 second 2 tim


For sure you know EcoDrive watches are powered by light and all advertisements says: you will never have to change the battery. That's right - you will never have to change the battery, because there is no battery as we know. In your watch you have CAPACITOR, and it is the cell (sort of battery), recharging itself from the light consuming plate underneath the dial. Capacitor is not timeless, so, you have to replace it anyway. Find your nearest watch repair shop and ask for replacement.

What is the proper battery placement or orientation for eco-drive


The Citizen Eco Drive watches use special recharchable batteries.
I started collecting a couple of watches and I noticed sometimes a jeweler replaces them with an ordinary battery. The watch will work and at the same time it will try to recharge this one until it explodes! In newer models they made it harder to use the non-rechargable ones by adding a special connector or clip to the rechargable battery types. If you look into the place where the battery goes, you will see a shiny spot where the metal clip needs to touch. If not sure, find the link to tech docs below.
Okay, if you say your battery goes bad, did you store your watch in a drawer as many people do? It may have lost the charge over time. First thing to try is to leave it on the window sill so the dial is in the sun. It will start ticking, but please leave it out there for 3 days to a week. The seconds hand will tick irregularly in steps of one and two seconds, to show you it wants you to readjust the time, as it knows it has lost time. Adjust the time and it should run smoothly.
The seconds hand should run in single second steps, if it takes steps regularly, but every 3 seconds or so, it tries to tell you that its power level is going down. It will be able to continue for one or two days, but you should get it into the sun more often.
Charging the battery under a lamp is possible, however this heats up the watch and this may reduce battery life.
If you need to know more about the Eco Drive, look for detail tech manuals for all types here: http://www.citizenwatch.com/downloads/tech/tech.htm
Those are great watches as long as you remember it needs light to charge.
