Question about Watches

1 Answer

The control device for a "flying UFO" toy stopped working, so I removed the three wafer batteries inside and replaced them with three others which are the same size, but diffferent numbers. Still won't work. Do I need to get new batteries with the exact same numbers? Thanks!

Probably. It doesnt matter the size of the batteries. It depends on the type of battery.

I am replacing the battery for a Casio #3011. Inside the back plate of the watch there is a note. "After battery replacement, contact AC with battery( ) using tweezers." What does that mean...


Hi,

it is a tricky way but it can be done...
remove the clockworks completely (that's including the plastic casing) from
its housing
separate the plastic frame from the clock
remove the little screw you spoke about earlier
look at the edges of the big battery clip holder, they latch to the clock
housing at three locations,
pry-off the cover plate...Presto battery can be removed. Before you
reassemble in reverse order make sure that the pushbuttons in the housing
can move freely, lube with light oil if necessay or remove them completely
to remove sweat and dirth

I bought edifice casio watch and when i use while washing hand the water goes inside at the first moment ???


unless it is waterproof you should remove electronics before going near water....
even water proof and water resistant electronics can get hairline fractures that will allow water to seap in.

once wet it will stop working.
BUT - - if you dry it thoroughly and replace batteries (if they also got wet) it can work again but you must be sure all water is dried before returning power to machine

as an example, a CRT tv i owned years ago was submerged in water for a while... of course it no longer worked.
but after three days of having a fan blow air over it it was completely dry and again worked

WARNING: only works for CRT tvs the flat screen tvs likely will allow water to seep into the screen so while you think it is dry it is still wet in the screen

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.

    Fossil Explorer watch BQ9381. It has 3 batteries. 2 are held with small screws and can easily be replaced. But the other one, how do you remove it?


    This watch is relatively simple to work on, though you have a total of nine (9) screws, three (3) batteries of two different types, a spring-pin in the wristband, and an o-ring seal to contend with. Nonetheless, you should be able to do this in half an hour with the following tools: Fine tweezers, preferably curved tip; these tweezers should be able to draw blood if you poke yourself lightly with them. Miniature (jewlery) screwdriver set, with tips no wider than the thickness of a dime. Clean toothbrush. Mouse pad for a work surface (optional but highly recommended). READ ALL OF THESE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE DOING ANYTHING. If you feel you are not up to the task, take it to a jeweler or reputable watch retailer (NOT WALMART!!!)1. Disconnect the 12 o'clock half of the wristband from the clasp. Remove the pin, and re-install it into the clasp so you don't lose it, or simply set it aside if you're afraid of it launching.2. Remove the four Philips-head screws from the caseback. Lift off the caseback and check the o-ring seal. If it starts to come off, remove it and set it aside.
    3. There are three batteries in this watch: two (2) 392 silver oxides (they may also say 41, 192, or 384) run the analog movement and are held in place by two (2) Philips-head screws each, and one (1) 364 (it probably says 621) silver oxide running the digital circuit. It is best to replace all three at once to get the maximum life out of each battery per change to minimize damage to the seal by unnecessarily opening the watch several times.
    4. Using a pair of tweezers, carefully remove the self-adhesive insulators that cover the two larger 392 batteries; set them aside adhesive side up where they won't get in the way. Then remove the two Philips-head screws from each battery clip. After removing the first one, the second will likely get "stuck" in the clip as the contact pushes it upward at an angle, engaging it with the threads. Don't worry about that, but do be careful not to lose either the screw or the clip. Repeat for the second 392 battery.
    5. Remove the one slotted-head screw from the 364 battery clip. You may need tweezers to remove the screw, clip, and battery from the battery recess. DO NOT TRY TO DROP OR SHAKE THESE OUT.
    6. At this time, you may want to clean the perimeter of the watch opening where the o-ring seal will be replaced. Use a toothbrush and try to scrub away any dirt. Don't brush across the open PCB of the watch as you will get dirt inside it that way. Gently work your way around the outside.
    7. Installation is reverse of removal. Remember, there is ONE of the smaller 364 batteries down in the recess, and there are TWO of the larger batteries on top.
    8. When you have ensured that all five battery screws have been properly replaced, and the self adhesive plastic insulators have been positioned properly and are sticking to the clips on the 392 batteries clips, hold the o-ring seal between your fingers only tight enough that you can pull it through your fingertips with little effort. Wipe the entire o-ring seal in this manner for several rotations.
    9. Gently stretch the o-ring around the perimeter of the opening. Use tweezers to position it, then hold it down on one edge and work the tweezers between the inside of the o-ring seal and the outside perimeter of the opening so that it guides it into place. It may try to "roll" out of position; keep running the tweezers around the perimeter until the "roll" works itself out and the o-ring seal stays seated nicely in position on its own.
    10. Replace the caseback, ensuring that the orientation is correct: the top of the text will be in the 12 o'clock position, which is where the band that was disconnected from the clasp is. The crown knob will be facing left with the watch face-down while the text is legible.
    11. Re-connect the band to the clasp. Insert the pin into the end of the band, then insert one end of the pin into the clasp. Angle the other end in and if your band hasn't twisted around too much, you may need to use your tweezers to compress the pin into place. Rotate the pin and band until both ends find their hole.
    12. I did mine in about 15 minutes, and no additional work was needed to "restart" the watch although the time needed to be set, obviously. Your results may vary. The digital portion was not dead when I replaced its battery. I am not responsible for lost or damaged watch components. I'm just a guy on the internet.

    Seiko Stop Watch S149 Stop watch has new batteries in and they are put in correctly but nothing shows up on the screen. The paper feeder works so it is getting power.


    If you go to "www.sportscounters.com/seiko-s149-stopwatch-printer-all-in-one" you will see a telephone number, try calling them for advice.

    (This problem is fairly common after replacing batteries, so I suspect that there is a procedure for resetting the timer.)

    The Seiko s149 will not display anything on the screen.


    We had to change the internal battery on ours today. There are 4 screws on the back of the case and 3 inside the AA battery compartment. Careful pulling the front and back apart as there are some wires that attach between the two. Two of the three screws need to be removed to get the CR2430 battery out to replace it. We now have the watch screen...just need to remember how to operate it...need a new users manual.

    I have a Radio controlled watch manaufactured by Crane & Viceroy. I need to fit a new battery.I have bought a new battery and would like to have a go at fitting it as I have never done this before....


    I haven't seen this watch but I suspect the thin metal peice is the battery retainer. If so look carefully to see if it clips over the module at provably several points. If so gently prise them up to release the retainer. Wipe off new battery and install the correct way up. Replace retainer ensure it is correctly clipped in at all points. Set about recalibration process. If it doesn't have clips perhaps it has screws. If so remove them etc. Pleae rate this solution.
