Replaced battery, now no beep.

Just replaced battery in Timex Expedition Indiglo Digital Watch, but now I notice the beeper doesn't work at all. My guess (which may be wrong) is that I need to reset the watch. Label inside watch says "after battery insertion, short AC pad and battery (+) to reset. Can't find the AC pad. Help!!

    Did you ever find out why the beep wasn't working after you replaced the battery? I'm now having the same problem.

    I have the same watch as wombatk - I've tried linking the back of the battery (+ive with the bit of metal that sticks up, but no luck. The battery is OK (bought new, replaced in a shop - worked fine for a couple of weeks and then died right after a run). Anyone have any other tips?

    No beep after new battery. I notices the case back was upside down. Removed screws and turned the case back rights side up. Beep returned.

    One of the posts below mentions putting the back cover on upside down and getting the beep back after flipping it over. This worked for me. The word "Expedition" should be at the "top" of the watch both front and back.

I have a Timex Digital Heart Rate Monitor 585 (product code T5C351F5)m, which has the same Short AC Pad and battery +ve message. There is an arrowhead pointing to the pad. It's a raised metal platform - a bit different to some of the Ironman's mentioned above. Here is a pic...Replaced battery, now no beep. - 6e1fe0e.jpg

How to reset the "Short Reset Pad/VDD(+)" on a Timex Ironman . First, orient your watch face down (with the watch belt buckle opposite you), the new battery in and latched. Second, on the right side battery hold-down latch you will see a small metal circle (~1 mm diameter) with a black dot in the center. Take a small paper clip and touch this metal pad to the metal battery hold-down latch for about 1 second. This will reset the watch.

I didn't need to short the AC pad after replacing the battery. Everything worked except the beep. I noticed I put the back on upside down. When I replaced the back up side up, the beep returned.

I was helped by postings here so I thought I would help in return. I had trouble with my Timex data link, the screen went completely blank a couple weeks after battery replacement (at shop). So I opened it up and without any markings I was blind so searched online for help.
The photos show the opened watch, straps removed, top is top. Note the screwdriver at top of image. I shorted the +ve back of the battery to the Metal plate at the top of case to the left of the cylindrical component, indicated by the screwdriver head. This seems to have done the trick. Note: the sticker on the batt. has been removed since the factory so I can't really vouch for where it points.
Other notes: the woman at the watch repair damaged my waterproof seal so it leaked. I cut out the damaged section and it's actually too short now. I have tried to compensate for this by adding a small amt. of silicone from my plumbers tool box to the entire seal and especially the area of the gap.
I love this watch, I loved and totally wore out my first Datalink and this is my second or third, it is getting old now but I think they may have stopped making them, no way to replace it. The first one was purchased in the 90's It attaches to my computer by usb cable and you can tweak it from the computer. They would prob. use bluetooth now.
thanks

Turn it over, take the back off, you'll see a small metal 'peg' sticking out to the right of the battery, take a paper clip and touch the peg and battery at the same time.
then, put the sticker back on the batter, or a small piece of scotch tape

Took me a while to figure this out so perhaps this will save someone the hassle : I had to put back that sticker that was on top of the battery in order for the beep to start working again. There seem to be two gold colored springs that make contact with the back plate of the watch where the beeper (piezo) is mounted (circled in blue in photo). So make sure these springs are making contact with the backplate and put that damned sticker back on the battery ! (I had to fish my out of the garbage, that is why it is bent) Replaced battery, now no beep. - f570ac88-3d02-453d-8d56-93ffd4d839d5.jpg

I replaced the battery in my Timex Expedition watch and while it shows time now, the beeper no longer beeps. I've heard that you have to ''short out'' something when you replace the battery on a watch. ??


The peizo beeper is usually attached to the watch back, but not in the center. It is usually off to one side, and there is a spring that sticks out of the watch that is supposed to make contact with the watch back (not where the peizo is though.) So when you put the back on the watch, you have to make sure to turn the back so that it is in the proper original placement for the contacts to be made. You can sometimes see some wear where the contacts were originally made. Good luck...

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


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.
