That sounds the same as car battery will do when it has a cell going bad. It's possible the battery has a defective segment, and will show a full charge for a while. It just doesn't have the capacity or amperage to run the watch properly. It could just need a reset on the Service Center equipment...or it could be a defective battery, even after only three years.

Casio pathfinder battery operated watch keeps blanking out display?


Your watch is solar powered, so I think it isn't charged lately. At a low charge, the watch goes into saving mode by switching off the display (while keeping the time, date, etc.). To charge the watch leave it in a brightly lit spot for a day or two. That should be enough to make the watch function as normal again.

From your description the solar cell charges the battery and keeps it topped up. I think the rechargeable battery is the problem because when the screen goes blank the battery level drops to low and the LCD blanks out which would explain the intermittent operation of the watch. I think it is worth getting it checked out with an estimate.

G-Shock Atomic Solar watch - ERR in atomic time keeping


The watch will set itself at specific time set times, this is likely to be at 0200 0400 and 0600.
You will however be required to set the time zone, the switch is likely to be on the back.

I have a Casio Shock Risist watch (GW-500A) that says "charge" on the display, that is all it shows. Does it need a new battery or what?


this watch requires no battery. It uses solar cells. my watch did this as well. to make the watch functional again my advice is to not wear the watch for one day and place it near a window that gets a lot of sun.

Blank screen


if this is the same as my watch, it's solar powered and when it gets TOO LOW< it will blank out and begin to charge .  Stick it in direct sunlight for a day if you can.  You can also stick it under a regualr lamp, but it will never get fully charged, but it should be enough to operate at least.  The battery meter is the top middle dial on the face.

sounds like it might not be getting enough sunlight. If it has the solar cell in it tape it to the inside of your window for a weekend. If it doesn't charge up the battery enough to make that bar quit flashing then you may need to have the battery changed.
