Question about Timex Expedition 40141 Wristwatch

4 Answers

Timex Expedition, beeps very quietly and indiglo doesn't work.

Took my expedtion into Walmart and got the battery replaced cause the indiglo didn't light up. After I got it repaced, the indiglo still doesn't work and it didn't beep at all anymore. Noticed she didn't put the back on the same way it came off so I removed it and put it back on. Now the beep is so quiet i can barely hear it. Is there a contact not being made properly? Or is the watch ruined? Any way to fix the indiglo?

To clarify... Replace the cover with the arrow on the back pointing directly at the stem. The Indiglo backlight, alarms and chimes should all work when the back cover is in this position.

    Make sure the white disc is contacted by the single spring, not the double spring on the opposite side. On my watch this means that the arrow is pointing in the opposite direction, away from the crown button, due "west" on the clock face. I think this is illogical but that's how my indiglo works!

Make sure you put the sticker back on. I threw mine in the garbage and had to use a tape. Alarm wouldnt go off without the tape.

You went to WalMart, your first mistake. They know less about your watch than you do. They also use low quality batteries.

You placed the cover misaligned, turn to make match the arrow with the crown in the middle.

I have an old Timberland Indiglo watch in which I had the same problem. I folded up a paper towel for padding and I used two sets of pliers, one to hold one side of the watch while I used the other set of pliers to snap the back cover closed. It took two seconds to do.

mcdevito75 here, Your Timex watch is most likely an Indiglo meaning light, The battery supplies power to to Quatz mechanism for time keeping and for the light. There is a very good possibility that 1 or 2 of the contacts between the battery and the Quatrz mechanism were lost during the new battery installation. While you can"t rule out that the Quartz mechanism and or the light may be wearing down, you still have to suspect the battery even a new battery, look for a small watch repair shop in your area and try another battery, let the jewler know of your watches problem so he / she can properly install the battery and ensure the contacts between the Quartz and the battery are being made.

Display disappears when Indiglo is pressed


That means your watch has two batteries - one for the movement and another one for INDIGLO. It may have just one battery, but in this case INDIGLO is taking up too much power. Replace the battery and you will be sorted. Rate me, plz.

I have a timex HRM. The indigo light just stopped working. I've had it for 3 weeks. There is a faint light on the edge, but it doesn't illuminate the face. Everything else works normal. Any ideas?


Check out if your watch has second battery for Indiglo function. It is quite common for Timex watches to have two batteries - one for movement and another for Indiglo.

After about two years, my indiglo night light function stopped working. The watch is still working, keeping time. Will changing the battery fix the indiglo problem?


Definitely, battery change will solve the Indiglo light problem. Many of wristwatches has separate battery for Indiglo function, but my advise is to change them both at once - will be cheaper for you.

Rate me, please.
