Re: replaced battery - won't switch modes!
It could be that you need to short out the watch , or it could be that you moved the movement up a little so that the buttons do not hit the metal prong that hits the movement. To short out the watch, take a pair of tweezers and put one tong on the positive of the battery, and put the other tong on a place on the movement marked "AC", or "+". Hold there for a few seconds,that will do the trick. If the movement has come up on the casing, Take a thin screwdriver and push the prong towards the movement and away from the button on all buttons around the casing. You should feelm the movement drop a little, then proceed to put the back on. If you still have problems, PLEASE let me know, I will be glad to assist you further. Good Luck!!

Turn your Timex Ironman face down and remove the four screws holding the back cover in place.
Remove the back case cover by gently prying it up with your screwdriver. Be careful to avoid disrupting any electrical contacts with the tip of your screwdriver.
Remove the interior sticker that covers the battery by lifting it up with the tip of your screwdriver. It should come off relatively easily. At this point the small circular battery should be visible in the compartment.
Lift up the small metal clip (battery strap) that covers the battery using the tip of your screwdriver.
Remove the battery from its housing and replace it with your new battery (available at any electronics store or online). Reassemble the watch in the same way you to took it apart.
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.
