Remove and reinsert battery.If no result,proceed as follows:
Use a watch tweezer with sharp endings.Remove watch back cover.You will see somewhere on the watch chassis "AC" engraved.There is a hole with contact at the bottom next to "AC".Gently,put one leg of the tweezer touching this contact and the other leg touching the chassis,instantly.Check the display.If no result,try again.This short-circuit/ground will activated the internal circuit and the watch will start working.If you do not have tweezer,you can use 2 watch repairer screw drivers,as well.

Yep, those suckers are tight all right.

The digital display on my Fossil JR-7747 has gone blank. No difference even with new battery. Is there any way to get a replacement works for this model as I really like its simple lines and appearance.

I just replace the battey on a g shock dw 9050 and i cant set the time i shows the time but at the top it flashes TYO

Did you ground the battery? If not you need to open up the watch and find the ground and take a tweezer and touch the top of the battery and the ground.You should be able to move on from there, if not are your buttons making contact with the movement?
