Question about Watches

Open Question

I have a Casio 4757 WVQ-142U watch and the user guide instructions do not seem to be correct. The picture shown is different but does have buttons a,b,c as shown in manual. But the functions do not exactly match. I am having difficulty setting time, the second hand is 5 secs out of sync

I have got the same problem & have wasted hours trying to solve this (no it is not just you!).

I contacted Casio & they told me that the watch needs to be returned to them so they can reset it. According to them there is a reset button inside the back of the watch.....

What a nonsense! Why don't they say this in the owners manual & save everyone the time/hassle!

I guess I'll be exploring this option tonight!

SOURCE: I have a Casio Wave

I sympathize, it took me ages to work this out - I had the same problem having had the battery replaced in my watch which only lasted 18 months...the irony was that my previous watch was still working & set to the correct, time date etc!

The following instructions are for the Casio Wave Ceptor 4757 WVQ-142E, the official Casio instructions are available at the following:

http://www2.casio.co.jp/manual_pdf/wat/en/pdf_search.php?MODULE=4757

For the extra information Casio neglect to tell you in the manual, read the following:

First, the watch needs resetting. To do this you need a watchmaker's screwdriver, remove the back (4 screws - obviously, you do this at your own risk), remove the thin plastic cover to reveal the battery.

On my watch on the battery cover it says to reset the watch, get a pair of tweezers & connect the battery back to the negative (marked -) plate for about 2 seconds, thus forming a circuit.

The watch stops, the screen goes blank for about 30 seconds, replace the plastic cover , back & screws.

Wait until the watch has picked up the correct time signal, the digital part will show the correct local time, the analogue screen won't at this stage.

Set the watch to the desired time zone that you require or HS (Home Setting).

Then press button "C" (bottom left) to scroll through until "HS" is displayed on the screen, then press button B (top right) for about 5 seconds until it flashes "OO" in the screen, then press the A (top left) button down & to reset the analogue time (so all 3 hands are pointing up) to 12 O'clock, it has to be set to 12 so the watch will recalibrate itself, if it is not set to 12 O'clock, it won't work! - sadly Casio don't tell you this bit in the manual....& of course this is really obvious to us mere mortals!

Now that you have aching hands & repetitive strain injury, press the B button (top left) to exit the (watch) hand setting mode & the watch will now wind the hands by itself to the correct analogue time, (or in theory it will, it took three attempts to set my watch).

Yes, for the record Mr Casio, if you hand a watch to someone & tell them to set it to the correct time, they will set it to the current local time (assuming that it is not 12 O'clock) & as opposed to 12 O'clock by default!

This is not rocket science, if your company is able to make & market a radio controlled watch which is in theory accurate to one second in a million years because it is controlled by the Rugby atomic clock, you'd think that the instruction department could write some decent instructions!

Hopefully this solved the problem!

Actually this is a simple procedure for a watchmaker or a person that changes alot of batteries, you don't need to send it anywhere, for the price of postage you can get someone to reset your watch, It is not actually a button but a spot on the circuit board that is shorted with tweezers to the positive side of the battery. This procedure is usually done when you install a new battery.

Casio wave ceptor wvq 202hdu ibver


I don't have wvq 202hdu but I have a waveceptor that had the same problem. After not being able to find a solution online, I went back and started playing with it and I figured it out on my wva-430a. Hopefully my instruction helps:

The problem is that the daylight saving time is set to ON (or maybe OFF) whereas it has to be set on Automatic (A). To change that on my wva-430a, I held the "Adjust/Display" button for three seconds. It showed "US 60" for me. Then I used the "Mode/Select" button to go to the next screen which shows CHI for Chicago (Central Time). Here you have to choose the city that corresponds to your time zone. Again by pressing "Mode/Select" it took me to the next screen which was the daylight saving option. The choices were ON/OF/A that could be cycled by pressing "Receiving/Set+" button. Set it to "A" for automatic. Then press Adjust/Display to see the last option for 12H/24H setting. Press Adjust/Display one more time to go out of the settings menu. Your watch should adjust itself immediately.
