Mcdevito75 here, It"s possible the NEW battery in your watch is weak from an extended shelf life, I'd return to the place the battery was installed and ask. Also you can go over your watches functions again as the watch has to be re-set once the battery is changed.

This is second Timex Ironman 30 that the 'glass' (think they've both actually been plastic!)-- cover has clouded over and now can't read the watch. It is actually like it is etched into the cover. What...


Buff the cover by getting a rotary hobby tool and some buffing compound. It will remove the etching to some extent , it will not be crystal clear but it will be much clearer than cloudy opaque.

I have a Timex Ironman 30-Lap Mid watch with a dead battery. I purchased a CR 2016 battery as stated on the back cover of the watch. How do I change the battery?


This one is quite simple. Just remove the watch back with a watch case knife and flick out the old cell then carefully press in the new one (VERY carefully as the movement is made of plastic). fit the back exactly the way it came off (note the direction of the writing).

The plastic piece that keeps the battery in place is broken.(F16059/4) is the watch


mcdevito75 here, This is a piece of plastic is used betwen the battery and the back cover of the watch as without the plastic there is a small gap between the battery and the back cover, meaning the battery could come loose in the watch even with the back cover on the watch, replace this plastic piece with some carefully folded Scotch Tape, cut and shape the Scotch tape to Approx. the same size and thicknesss of this piece of plastic or just by sight thick enough to keep the battery in place in the watch with the back cover on.

How do you unlatch the battery of a timex ironman watch. I have the back open now


You will need to look for any screws holding down a plate over the battery. Sometimes these only need to be loosened and sometimes they have to be removed. Sometimes the plate can be lifter slightly and the battery slide out from underneath. I hope this helps you. Best luck

No sound


If you lost the spring, I can't help. But repairs like this SHOULD be done carefully on a mat or table to help contain parts. My Timex watch made no sound after I changed the battery. I was unsure what the internal plastic sheet meant when it set something like short to reset. BUT, as shown elsewhere on this FixYa site, simply turning the back cover 180 degrees restored the sound, and the watch works great again!

Timex Sleek stopped beeping when I replaced the battery


This is a common problem when non watch educated people are changing battries themselves.
The answer is simple: While changing battery and handling the watch you did lost the coil spring. It is so small, you will never notice that the something was dropped.
Coilspring is the connector to the sound membrane of the watch, transfering microprocessor signals to audible membrane.
If it's lost, there is no connection between watch movement and audio membrane.
I suggest that you did change batteries yourself previously and had the same outcome (no sound). Next time you gonna change the battery - make sure you do not turn the watch upside down and if you do - check the movement with eyeglass and make sure all the loose fitted bits are in place.
To get your both watches fixed visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask for coilspring to be fitted.

Rate me, please.

This is a problem concerning Forerunner 50 Garmin. No more sound alarms works, since I've changed the battery a few weeks ago : - woken up alarm ; - interval alarms (INTTMR) T1 and T2 - interval alarms...


1) You have lost the connector spring wich transmits the sound signal to the tweeter positioned inside back cover. In this case you have to look for watchmakers help.
2) You may misplaced the gasket in watch and the spring is not touching the caseback through the protrusion. In this case open the caseback, realign the gasket properly and reassemble the watch. Make sur thet the spring is touching the caseback inside watch.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Resetting sound


Could the jeweler have inadvertently damaged the beeper in the watch when he changed the battery? I'd tell hime the problem, ask him to restore the sound and see what he says ("oops" is a bad sign).
