Hi.

The back plate of most watches is unscrewed by clasping it with a special tools and rotating anti-clockwise. In absence of the special tool a common pair of tweezers will do the job. Once the tweezers tips stick into the marks in the backplate circular panel all you have to do to remove the plate is rotating counterclockwise.

Once the back plate is off, extreme care must be taken with the rubber seal, running around the edge of the case opening. This is very delicate, and damaging or kinking the seal may result in the watch loosing its water proof capacity. For this reason battery replacement is better done at the shop.

My Abacus Fossil AU4005 110504 wont charge any more,wen i put it on the charger nothing happen,it does not light up any more,do i need a new battery and where do i get it?


I had the same problem but easy fix.
first make sure you put the watch on charger for a few hours first-- the problem is not the battery not taking charge it is the watch that is not turning on probably.
After a few hours on the charger, remove the four screws on the back cover-- WARNING- remove cover carefully. there are two thin copper wires attached to the cover to the charing coil. set the cover aside. remove battery back (unplug tiny connector). WAIT a10 minutes-- this is to discharge any remaining charge that may be held by capacitor in the watch. plug the battery back in. Voila! working now. This is my way of resetting the watch to factory setting. Isn't it almost always work when you remove power to electronic device to reset it?

How do I remove the back cover of a Fossil JR-8096 (Big Tic) wristwatch?


when you look at the back are there three small rectangular indents evenly spaced on the edge on the back? If so you'll need a special tool for opening waterproof watches. the tool adjusts to fit the three indents then press down as you turn counterclockwise. you can find the tool on amazon.com or your local jewelry store. make sure the gasket is in place and not damaged before screwing the back on.

here is a link to the tool

I've got the back cover off....how do you remove the inner cover to get to the battery?


If there are screws holding the contact - just unscrew them. If there are no screws - contact legs are clipped and you have to undo them by bending them off the hooks. Rate me, plz.

How do I change the battery in my Timex Iron Man Triathlon? I removed the 4 screws in the back but cannot remove the cover because of the overlap of the wrist band.


You will need to remove the wrist first before the cover will come out.Else pull the wrist out and allow it to leave a gap and then you can move the cover out.

REMOVE BACK COVER


If caseback is without grooves, it is snap on caseback and you have to insert openers blade under the lip and pry up. Lip is the tiny gap between the case and caseback.
If you have groves in caseback, it is screwdown caseback and you will need special opening tool. Insert the blades in to the grooves and unscrew the caseback.
You can find this tool on eBay.

Rate, please.
