Casio Fisherman (PAS400B) watch replacement clip for spring pins

Our son smacked his new Casio Pathfinder watch on a wall and managed to dislodge and loose a metal clip that retains one of the watch band pins. The watch shows no ill effects except the missing metal clip.

Despite a week of on and off internet searching and a trip to the local jeweler I've had no luck.

Where can I get a replacement? The band spring pins are 23mm long.

Mcdevito75 here, I'm surprised a jeweler couldn"t help. Here is Casio"s contact number, speak with them, TIP, get a spring bar 1/2 MM smaller and larger than what you measured. Contact Casio at 800-435-7732 9AM-----5 PM EST. hope this helps.

Replace battery on Casio DB-36-1AV


Open the back (4 screws). Careful with the rubber seal and spring inside. Use a pin to pry the battery clip away from the bottom of the battery. You need to pry the bottom out and up. When the clip releases, the battery is easy to remove/replace.

How di i change the batteries in my Casio Pathfinder 2782


  • Choose a quiet, well-lit room where you can replace the battery in your Casio Pathfinder watch. Prepare a table, desk or other clean, flat surface where you can perform your watch repair. Put down a soft cloth or piece of craft felt to protect the face of your Casio Pathfinder watch from being scratched during the battery installation process.

  • 2

    Set your Casio Pathfinder watch face-down on the soft cloth or craft felt. Use an optical-sized Philips screwdriver to remove the four screws that secure the watch back to the body of the watch. Set the screws aside, but don't lift the watch back.

  • 3

    Slide the watch back off of the body of the watch very slowly. There are three important springs held underneath the watch back; it is essential to remove the watch back slowly to avoid losing them.

  • 4

    Lift the three springs out of your Casio Pathfinder watch using a small pair of metal tweezers. Take note of the length and placement of the springs as you remove them. Set the springs aside with the other disassembled watch components.

  • 5

    Take the black rubber protective disk out of your Casio Pathfinder to reveal an identically-shaped white plastic disk. Remove the white plastic disk and set it and the black rubber disk aside. Use your metal tweezers, if necessary, to lift out the rubber and plastic disks.

  • 6

    Release the battery strap that holds the battery in place in your Casio Pathfinder watch by pushing the battery strap latch to the left. Remove the old battery from your Casio Pathfinder using a pair of small plastic tweezers.

  • 7

    Pick up your replacement watch battery with the small plastic tweezers and insert it into the battery compartment of your Casio Pathfinder watch. Replace the battery strap and push it gently with the tip of your plastic tweezers to snap the latch in place.

  • 8

    Touch the "-" and "AC" terminals on your Casio Pathfinder watch with the tips of your metal tweezers for at least two seconds. This helps ensure that your watch will work properly once reassembled.

  • 9

    Put your Casio Pathfinder back together to complete the new battery installation. Start by replacing the white plastic disk, followed by the protective black rubber disk. Use your small metal tweezers to replace the small watch springs in their correct locations. Replace the back cover of your Casio Pathfinder, insert the four screws and tighten them with your optical-sized Philips screwdriver.

    Replacing watch band on pathfinder pas410. can't get pins out to replace band.


    Watchmakers use special tool to release spring bars, but it is possible to release them in home conditions. Place your watch on flat surface face down. Using pocket knife insert the blade between band and the watch lug where the spring bar (pin) end is and using lever action push spring bar end inwards. This should release the band from the watch. If all this does not work, then your watch band is attached with friction fitted pins and you will need watchmakers help, as without special pin removing tool it is not possible to remove friction fitted pins.

    Rate me, plz.

    Pin on the watchband is protruding


    No need to buy a new watchband friend, you need a new pin. The spring inside the pin has lost its elasticity ... you won't spend a fortune ....

    Casio SPF70 Spring Pins


    The best way is to take a look on ebay. The only downside is: you have to buy a whole lot (I mean - you can not buy just a two or three springpins). Go to ebay, choose jewellery and watches and then watch parts and tools or accesories.
    The other way is to try to find on internet jewellery and watch part supplyers in your coutry and contact them. They usually selling springpins in packs of 10.
    Before you buy any of them, you need to measure the distance between watch case lugs in milimeters. The size between lugs is the exact size for the springpins to order.
    If you are not happy with that, then you have to try to continue to visit more jewellers till you find the right ones.

    Don't forget to rate, please.

    Casio SPF 40 beeper not working after battery change


    There is this little spring which fits in one of the small holes in the watch. When I tested my watch without the spring, there was no beep. With the spring in place the sound worked nice again. So (IMO) apparently the little spring is used as contact between the watch en the "speaker" placed at the back of the watch.

    Casio illuminator, w-94h


    There is a tiny spring that must make contact with the back cover plate when you screw it back on. If the spring is missing, the piezoelectric buzzer will not work. The tiny spring is located toward the upper right in this photo of a Casio W-94H watch, directly underneath the "C" in CASIO that is etched in the metal. Note that the word CASIO is upside down in the picture, so if you can't see the picture for some reason, the hole for the tiny spring would be directly above the "C" in CASIO.
