Casio Wave Ceptor #3054

I cannot get RC timekeeping to work, it is set to on. I see it trying, I get full #3 signal strength, but always get error message. I know when & where to do this as I also have an older model which still works & gets auto time set just fine.....I just bought the watch & the last time it was auto set was May 26. and nothing since......

    I bought this watch today. The user interface is next to useless, thanks to an idiotic design. The person who wrote the manual is probably struggling with English also. I am going to return the watch at the first opportunity.

    The automatic time signal does not work.

    It is a piece of junk.

    I have a Casio Wave Ceptor 3054 or WV-59A and it appears it is not receiving the atomic signal and recalibrating. I have set it in a window over night on 2 occasions to see if that would help and it did not. I called Casio and was told that it doesn't recalibrate and that I should wait another week to see if it hasn't done so by then. The last time it calibrated was 4 days ago.

    My watch hasn't sync'd with the atomic clock in over a month. It used to sync with no problems every night. Occasionally, it would go for a few days w/o syncing, but then resume as normal.

    But now it's been more than a month... Did the atomic clock die? ;-)

I have the same watch and thought I had the same problem. Casio's website actually DOES have the downloadable manual for this watch in their Support section, though it's kind of burried in their "Watch Manual Archives" section. Try to copy this address into your browser: http://world.casio.com/wat/download/en/manual/ FYI, the manual number you'll need to search for is shown in a rectangle on the back of the watch. In my case it was # 3054. When I downloaded the manual and read it, I learned how to confirm auto-updating is activated, and how to do manual updating. In my case, I was trying it from too far inside my house with a weak signal. When I set all of the settings as described and placed the watch in the window with 12:00 pointing outside as shown in their diagrams, the manual update feature worked like a champ. I also learned about a couple of other neat features hidden in the watch. Too bad the manual didn't come with the watch when I bought it; it would have saved me lots of frustration. Hope this helps you!

Mine is the WV-59A/3054, for which Casio's support site lacks the specific owner's manual. I downloaded the module 3140 manual (the buttons are in a different position and the signal strenght display differs, but it works the same way) to get started.

WWV, which is the radio signal that is used when your home time zone is in the Western hemisphere, provides the digital clock signal that is used to reset the watch. That signal isn't continuous, so it's best to set the watch manually first (to match the home time zone), so it will do its nightly synchronizations at times when WWV is transmitting that signal. Mine usually synchronizes at 00:04 each morning.

I have no answer to the 15 second error. The propagation delay from the WWV transmitter at Fort Collins, CO to anywhere on the globe would be far less than that.

My Casio wave ceptor EQW-M100D has started to show the wrong time, it started with a couple of minutes slow but this has now esculated to 12 minutes slow. This normally happens when the watch is left off...


Instruction book page E-23. To turn auto receive on or off. In Timekeeping mode press D (Lower right) to display last Signal screen. It should say GET at the bottom and show the last time it updated. (Or ERR) Hold down A until the receiving indicator and current auto receive setting (ON or OFF) start to flash. Press D to toggle auto receive on. A again to end.
If you tried to make it receive manually this will be turned off. If the GET screen said ERR then it did not update and auto receive would still be off. I had to do the manual thing about 20 times before it updated. A upper left C lower left D lower right A upper right (light)

Nothing you can do. Where you work (middle east) there is no time signal radio station for your (radio controlled) wave ceptor watch.

In the instuction booklet at page 8 it shows a picture of the watch face in timekeeping mode and in the picture the face shows the day and date. My face is showing the digital time here. How do I show the day and date,or the timekeeping mode?

My Casio Wave Ceptor 3054 has started resetting to 12:00, 1/1/05 at random times. Why?


My Wave Ceptor also reset to 01/01/05 four days ago. I've had it for more than a year and this is the first time it's happened. It hasn't reset with automatic updates and I can't get it to manually update.

Can we take casio wave ceptor watch's calibrations signal in istanbul?


http://world.casio.com/wat/download/en/manual/

Use the four numbers on the back of your watch and you will have a PDF version of your instruction manual.

The signal for calibration is transmitted from Colorado and works only in US.

Hope this tip helps.

Casio Wave ceptor


Check to see if the watch is set up to get its time from another country. You may find that the fault started with a battery change or an all reset of the watch. The default location for many of these models is for North America or Asia. In some models the location is not active until it is set. In different parts of the world, they are using different time set protocols. There are some technical reasons for this.

Check the instructions about setting the time zone for the watch. Pay particular attention to the time zone setting, location setting, and that the feature is turned on in the first place.
