Mcdevito75 here, If you replaced the battery yourself you may have moved the quatrz movement and mis-aligned the buttons the thier contact spot on the quartz movement. You"ll have to open the back nd check by pushing gently on each button 1 at a time to make sure each button is makeing contact at the right spot on the quartz movement, also even if the battery is new it can still be weak or dead as they have a shelf life, also you may need the exact battery number Casio recommends, a small watch repair shop in your area can advise. The 2 buttons you need to set your watch are MODE and SET. --------- Press and maybe hold in the MODE button, 2--3 seconds, MODE button usually on the right side of watch caseing, see the display flashing, now press set to set each function, (hour, minute etc.) press MODE after ecah function is set, (hour, minute etc.) once everything is set, press MODE again to see steady display.

Why would a tissot t-touch need an overhaul to replace a dead battery


These babies are notorious for going down the tubes with a battery change. I bet if you get it back it won't work with a new battery. Twice I have replaced batteries and the watch didn't work when I finished. One of them was my own watch, I think $450 is about half the price of a new watch and that is sad. Cool watch just not very long life

Omega Seamaster 300M won't resart after replacing the battery ,which is an Eveready Energizer #395.I have replaced the battery once before,and there was no problem.What I can tell you is when I at


The loss of the stem is probably what caused the watch to stop.
The only remedy is to remove the back cover and identify whether a press-stud or screw held it in place.
A press-stud should allow the stem to be simplt pushed back in - although it may need some help by pushing if it's stiff.
A screw would likely have loosened, unscrew slightly, reinsert the stem and then screw down firmly.
It is unlikely that any parts were lost and if you are not comfortable opening the case, refer to a watch maker (rather than a jeweller) who will do it for you and also assess whether any damage had occurred to start the problem off.

Hi i just bought a "the cannon" watch from west 49 and i don't know how to get the watch to actually start. i set the time on it but it won't start ticking. i'm wondering if it's...


Hi alec,

I see that you cannon watch is not ticking even after you have set the time.

Well after you set the time you push the knob back in once the time is set right then the watch should start ticking that instant.

If the watch is not ticking at all then it is either a damaged watch or the watch sold to you may not have batteries on it.

can you give me a model and info regarding the watch maybe we can get information or a manual about the watch for further checking before considering it to be broken.

Also if you can try calling or going back to where you purchased the watch maybe they give you details on why it will not click since you just bought it I believe they will assist you if it may need replacing.

I hope that this helps.

Have a nice day,

Just change the battery on my Nike Anvil WC0020 watch and the alarm won't sound for the timer as well as the two alarm settings.


If you changed battery yourself, you've lost the tiny spring without noticing it. Carefully check around the place where you changed the battery. The spring itself is very, very tiny, so, be as concentrated as much as you can. That spring (coilspring named by watchmakers) transmits the signal from watch movement to the watch back cover where the sound membrane is located. In case if you find it, open the watch and insert that spring with the bent out end first in to the desired hole in watch movement (should be named COIL SPRING). After that re-assemble watch and the sound should work.

My battery is running dead . Can I have it replaced ?


Yes, the battery for this watch can be replaced. Timex estimates that the battery should last 2-3 years, but that assumes an "average" use of the Indiglo backlight. If you never use the backlight or audible alarms, your batteries would have lasted longer; heavy use of both would have run the battery down more quickly.
If you want to replace the watch battery yourself, you'll need a very fine philips or flathead screwdriver, the new battery, and a bit of patience. It would also be helpful to have a pair of tweezers, but that's not absolutely necessary. If you carefully look on the back of your watch, Timex usually lists the battery type so that you can buy a replacement battery without first opening the watch. If you can't figure out what the numbers mean, take it to a jewelry counter at Target or Walmart, and they should be able to help you decipher it. I don't know which battery this specific watch takes, but many Timex watches use a #1620 or #2016 3v battery. Look for a number like that on your watch back.
To open up the back of the watch, open the strap so that you have good access to the back. If you have a steel band, you might need to slip out one of the adjustment pins to separate the band into halves. Yes, you might be able to take the back off without this step, but it makes it a lot easier.
Place the watch face down onto a soft surface. I like to use a dark towel, so that if I drop one one of the tiny screws you'll be dealing with in a minute, they won't bounce and you can easily find them again.
Use your screwdriver to loose the back of the watch, one screw at a time. I find it very helpful to loosen a screw, then use the tweezers to pick it up out of the hole. These guys are tough to grab with your fingers! Put the screw in a safe place, then carefully remove the back of the watch. A little black neoprene gasket may be stuck to the back or be floating around--don't lose that!
You should be able to see where the battery is kept. On most Timex watches, there's a metal shield covering the watch and completing the power circuit. Using your screwdriver, gently pry the tabs of this shield away from the watch movement, one tab at a time. Try very hard not to snap off any of the little plastic anchors. On a Casio watch I recently serviced, I had to remove the movement from the watch to get at these little tabs; I don't remember ever having to do that with a Timex.
Once the shield is loose or removed, the battery should slide right out. Replace the battery, and gently snap down the metal shield. Turn the watch over to check whether it's working again. If it's not, you may have to push a little "reset" pin on the watch movement to clear the registries. The back of the metal shield usually has instructions on where that little pin is located. If the watch is already working, you won't need to do this.
Closing up the watch is the reverse of what you did to get it open. Make sure the neoprene gasket is back in place--that's what's keeping sweat and water out of the watch--and carefully set the cover back in place. Tighten the screws in an "X" pattern--i.e., top left, then bottom right, then bottom left, then top right. I get all the screws loosely screwed in before tightening them down in earnest. This watch has a plastic case, so you want to tighten the screws snugly, but not over-tighten them so that they strip out the screw hole.

Replace battery for PULSAR Y911. how ro start it?


To restart the watch, you have to short the battery with a pin that sits under a sticker on the back of the watch. The sticker is supposed to explain that. You can usually do it with a pair of sharp scissors or tweezers. Without "jumpstarting" the watch, just installing a new battery won't start the watch. (I don't know why.)
