Thanks for contacting FixYa
DId you do the battery replacement yourself or have a store do it for you?
Unless it is done by Timex, or a qualified Timex retailer, it will NOT be waterproof anymore as the seal has been destroyed.
You can try to see if Timex can still repair by going to this link

Best regards. Jewel

Why does my Wave Ceptor WVA-105H work sporadically after getting wet?

Try a new battery. When water got in there it may have shorted the battery and drained it. It may work for a short time and then die. Also put the watch on you car dashboard in the sun to bake it instead of the oven unless you have an electric oven. For electric oven use a thermometer to get temp of 140 F then turn the oven off and put the watch in for an hour.

How do I recharge Strong Idea G-Force?

Contact Bulova customer service, if that is in fact the maker of this watch brand. I've never heard of it before, neither have I run into a watch that needed to be recharged. What about a battery? Is it solar? kinetic? Did you receive an instruction manual? I would research these obvious problems first, then start thinking about other issues like perhaps your particular watch is malfunctioning and needs to be sent back. If your computer can read it but the screen is blank then it is not an energy problem, it is a hardware problem, which would have to be taken up with the manufacturer.

My Puma watch screen went blank?bought it April of 2010 at nike store in chicago? model 910192001? How do I solve this problem. I know its under warranty

If it had been sitting on display for long time the battery might need replacement. I'd take advantage of the warranty and have them replace the whole watch.

My son's pathfinder watch's screen went blank. Just dead battery? Thought it was solar powered. Thanks.

They do have a battery to tide them over the times when there is no light shining on them.

Consult the maker about replacing the battery, it should last for years.

The instructions may give you an indication of how long they should last. Otherwise contact them.

Go to to obtain a contact number or email address.

How can i replace the battery on a Breitling

I suggest that you got to "" and after getting past the pretty pictures you click on "maintenance centers" and find the one nearest you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving.

One fairly frequent cry for help is because the owner can't get the back on again. Also since watches frequently include gaskets to keep water out, difficulty can be experienced in fitting the back and maintaining the seal.
