Question about Casio G-Shock G7000D-8V Wrist Watch

Open Question

My G-7000D watch will not hold a charge, so if it is out of the light, then it "sleeps" and is not useful as a watch. I need to find a new battery, I assume?

SOURCE: You didn't have GW510A (limited edition) Assume this is similar?

It's a common problem, now that the earlier Tough Solar watches are getting on in years. Plus, there was apparently a bad production run by the battery manufacturer (Matsushita/Panasonic), so there's a certain subpopulation of G-Shocks that are seeing premature failure.

Replacement is easy. You'll need a jeweler's screwdriver set, ideally some plastic tweezers (though a toothpick will do), some metal tweezers for one of the final steps (but not for handling the battery), and if you're smart some latex gloves to keep everything pristine. Get a little tube of silicone grease, too (and ONLY silicone). Careful with it, though-- it's impossible to wash off of clothing, etc.

It's all proceed-at-your-own-risk, of course, but good instructions are posted at http://forums.watchuseek.com/showthread.php?t=41076

Mind the little springs, and note which one came from where.

Altogether, it's an easy job. Good luck!

My Citizen echo drive does not hold a charge.It is 9-Months Old .


Place the watch in direct sunlight of sunrise or sunset for a few weeks and also bright light but not hot light. Wear as usual in direct sunlight as the occasion allows. Once these kind of batteries are discharged, they need quite some time to recharge. Wearing a new solar watch most of the time indoors with bright light only, is normally not enough but once the battery reaches full charge, the extra bright light conditions can be relaxed.

My rolex watch stops while i am sleeping


Your Rolex is automatic?
This means it "recharges" while moving it. If you remove from your arm before going to sleep, then it does not "recharge".
But this is something your Rolex should not do it can by default hold the charge for more than one night.
A good watch repair service can handle this issue.

It says rom fail on my lodown 2 and i was wondering if anyone knew how to reset the watch?


Here some tips to deal with a Nixon Lodown:
1) Sleeping mood (display is off, all buttons lead to the same reaction: display shows time for some secs and then turns off again. This mode is for battery energy saving, switch it on and off by holding (c.a. 2 secs) the light button.
2) ROM FAIL: it happens that the lodown shows ROM FAIL and constantly restarts. It happened on my watch while I tried to change time zones. Here is what to do about it: Bring it to a professional watch repair store and get the battery replaced. The watch restarts automatically and works perfectly fine again. DON'T send it to Nixon, they will charge you for shipping, battery replacement, the new battery etc. Although it should be covered by the guarantee. Just get a new battery, it cost me 16 USD and the watch is good again, waterproof and works perfectly. Nixon authorized repair centers will charge you extra for pressure testing. I had this on my second Lodown, after I had it two weeks only...
3) Watch freezes: All digits are on at the same time, none of the buttons brings a reaction. I had this problem on my first lodown. Just get a new battery, that solves the problem. But again DON'T use authorized Nixon repair centers, it costed me almost 45 USD, just to get a new battery. Although the watch was only 1 year old and guarantee should have covered this case.
In general the Nixon Lodown is a good watch, looks good, has all features you need, as long as it works. The problem with the watch is, the above problems occur pretty often. I have my second Lodown now and I am very disappointed with the Nixon customer service. Although clearly guarantee cases, they will charge you for every single problem you have with the watch. My advice, bring the watch to a regular watchmaker.
After all, I don't understand why the Nixon Lodown manual does not mention all the above issues. The manual is completely useless, very poor from Nixon. You have to dig online to solve any issues on the watch. In summary: The Nixon Lodown watch is good, Nixon customer service and guarantee is a joke. ROM FAIL and freeze is solved with replacing the battery.

Stem is broken watch cannot be wound


Hi,

An Eco-Drive does not need to be wound. It has a rechargeable battery in it that is recharged by light hitting the dial of the watch.

All Eco-Drives have to be allowed to get light on them to recharge the battery. If they are put in a drawer or covered all the time by shirt sleeves then the battery will drain and they will not work.

If the battery is completely drained then the battery will not be any good and will need replacing by a qualified watchmaker.

Try setting your watch under a light or in a sunny spot with the light shining on the dial. If in the sun light it should take a few hours to charge the battery. If under a light it can take more than 18 hours to fully charge the battery.

But if the charging does not hold then the battery is no longer good and requires replacement by a qualified watchmaker.

Hope this helps,

Ken

My MTG900 says, "Charge" on the screen...I got it last Christmas, does this mean I need a new battery?


CHARGE means you have to charge the watch. It depends on what type of movement you have. If it's solar powered, you need to leave your watch under the light to charge it. If it is battery powered - you haqve to buy the new battery and fit it. Rate me,plz.

I'm looking for a replacement stainless steel watch strap part number S961DB for my Casio G-shock 7000D. I've been told by a NZ Casio agent that there is no replacement strap. This is an expensive watch...


You can try calling Casio derectly 1-800-836-8580 If that doesn't work your out of luck unless someone has one they don't need. What is wrong with the one you have? sometimes the band can be repaired. Also some watch people or jewelers who can take a band alot like yours and cut it to fit the watch. Let me know what happens, maybe I can help you.

Change the battery. This happened with mine along with the battery needing charging more frequently. In my opinion, Casio's assertions that you won't need to change the battery is pretty much of a joke. My jewler concurred.

After changing the battery I can now press the light switch button and the watch works normally.
