Casio Forester runs slow.

I just installed a new battery but it looses about 3 mins every 12 hrs. Is there a way to adjust for this loss of time? --Stuart Hakoun 845-736-4050 845-629-7789 (cell)

Same issue. I purchased it 4 months ago and suspected it began to run slow about one month ago. Thought it might be batteries, being on shelf for who knows how long. Replaced batteries (another hassle or adventure, depending on perspective). Still runs slow. Not sure of how many minutes per day, though noticeable over a few days. Not Happy!
My model is the FT-600W and this is the first find web searching.

    Same here, a couple minutes a day. I was going to replace the batteries, but it sounds from other's experience that that isn't the problem. And the fact that there's no mention of this model on Casio's website makes it impossible to find troubleshooting advice.

    Yet another note: I have found since I put it down on the desk that it hasn't lost a minute in 2 full weeks. Now then what to think?

    Get this: I have put it on the desk for 2 weeks and it hasn't lost a bit of time since. Don't know yet what that means, but is interesting.

    Tried to put it on again a while ago and still failed by running slow. I suppose I could try to put it on my belt and see if it doesn't like movement or whether it is my 'body'. Until then, I leave it on my nightstand and use it as a night clock, albeit an expensive one.

SOURCE: Tropby radio controlled watch, runs slow, even with new battery

Your watch is need to clean an replaced the old oil in gear shafting that is the common problem of a watch when the old oil is sticky already thats makes the gear moves slowly and your watch is always late . If ever your watch was already clean and replaced new oil and still working slowly then the problem is in the circuit board is near to run out its needs to replaced whole circuit board so its better again. I know this because im a technician in Rolex service center before. Feel free to ask whatever the result.

Hope it may help you;

SOURCE: Casio 4305 runs 5 minutes slow.

Adjusting the home positions:
Hold down a+b for about 5 secs. If the seconds hand is not at 12, the home position is "off". If this happens, press a to move the second hand in 1 sec steps until it reached 12 o'clock. Now press b to adjust the hour and minute hands. If not at 12, press a hands will move in 20 second steps until they are at 12. Press b, watch returns to timekeeping mode and should now show the correct time. (:

My casio 4305 watch is showing the wrong time and ive been through the instructions but its still 3 and half hrs fast

You need to reste youre watch.
you need te set the dail to 12 hour position.
Doing it by holding the a and b button together. wait about 5 second and the dials should shift to 12 o clock position.
If not use the B button to shift the secons hand, then a then b fot the minute hand, then a en then b button to shift the hour hand.
After placing all the hands on 12 you press b on time and yourewatch sjould then adjust to the right time.

What is the main internal assembly of the Casio forester watch called? Replacing the battery does not work.

mcdevito75 here, The Internal workings of all watches and clocks, Quartz and mechanical is called the movement. You may have a weak or even dead battery, even if the battery is new. If you"ve dropped your watch, got it water logged, you could have hurt the Quartz movement. It'll take special equiptment to check the Quartz movement to see if it"s burned out. I would try another battery or at least double check this batteries instalation in your watch. For more info, here is Casio"s contact number, 800-435-7732 9AM--5PM EST.

Use this page to download a copy of CASIO watch manuals in PDF format. To download a PDF file, enter the four-digit (or three-digit) module number marked on the back cover of your watch.

You will need a pdf reader on your pc, you will find all instructions in there.

If you don't have a pdf reader you can get one from
