SOURCE: Changed battery in Movado. Is there a way to reset?

No, there isn't any buttons you are missing.
My first advie is to test battery for full power. If it is, then clean all contacts in battery hatch.
If it still do not work, the gear train can be jammed or the integrated circuit faulty and repairs can be undertaken by skilled watchmaker only.

SOURCE: Suunto watch keeps resetting itself. Changed

You wouldnt think a whole lot could go wrong with a Suunto battery change. If they had trouble getting the coin access back off and unscrewed the case then the button contacts might be out of line causing your problem. You might also check to be sure that they put the right battery in and that there are no pry marks as sometimes there are problems getting the battery out. If any excessive pressure was placed on the circuit board and it cracked it will need to be replaced.

Changed the batteries and now the main screen doesn't show anything. I even did the reset button in the back and changed the batteries again. The sensor works (LED Light blinks). How do I fix this


You said you pushed the reset button a couple of times...is it the one you have to press with a paper clip? you have to hold that button in for five seconds for the reset to take...not sure if you held it in or not...here's two links for the 2-page manual if that doesn't take care of it...

After I changed a battery on R0614ZM TERNER watch, the display went berzerck and then blank altogether. Any ideas at all?


Some watches have a "reset" button or combination of buttons that must be pushed to clear all the electronic registries on the watch's little computer after you replace the battery. You might try taking off the watch back and seeing if your watch has this requirement. Even then, it's not always a perfect solution. Last week, I replaced the battery in a watch that had been dead for some time. The watch appeared to come alive again when I put the new battery in, but when I pushed the reset pin (on this movement, it was on the watch movement itself, next to the battery), the entire watch went dead. Nothing I did would wake it up. I removed the battery, waited 30 seconds, then re-inserted the battery. Problem solved; the watch powered up, and I was able to set the time and access all functions again.
On some digital watches from the 1980s, after replacing the batteries, you were supposed to push and hold all the external buttons for a few seconds to reset the watch. I don't think manufacturers still make watches that respond to this, but it is easier to try than taking off the back and re-installing the battery.

Hello ,,, I changed the battery in my Timex Indiglo and now just the light is working but not the minute hand or time hands. How do I fix this I have tried two batteries already?


Inside the battery compartment, you will see the battery is held down by a clip. Carefully remove the clip and eject the battery. Insert the new battery and replace the clip. If the battery clamp indicates you should do so, quickly press the reset button twice. Then reattach the back of the watch. If the watch display remains off after replacing the battery, press all buttons at the same time to reset the display.

I had the battery changed in my watch at a watch repair store. Ever since then my watch won't connect with the time signal and reset itself to the current date and time.


I had a similar problem with my Casio watch when I changed the battery. I put it to one side and used another one and eventually it re-set itself (it took some days I think, although I wasn't watching it too closely.

I suggest a lot of patient waiting!

I have the FOSSIL GRIMM fs-4154 250611. I have managed to get the back off and lose the battery. But before that a jeweler had tried to fix it and said it was damaged. When I brought it in, however, it was...


I changed the battery in my Fossil Grimm FS-4154 just yesterday. It takes a CR2016 coin cell. There is no need to reset the watch as long as the battery is installed in one fluid motion: if all the LCD segments turn on (88:88), just press the MODE button and the watch will reset. If it shows random junk instead, remove the battery and try again. The hardest part was getting the back plate back on; that required 2 vise-grips locking pliers, a pair of regular pliers, and a disturbing amount of force.

Read carefully about Radio-controled time keeping and other related chapters.
If after performing all the required operations your watch still does not work properly, you have some kind of fault in the Integrated Circuitboard and will need to seek for watchmakers help- probably an IC replacement.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Invicta Ocean Ghost Chrono Model# 2636


Did you recently have a battery changed. A lot of times on chronos when the battery is changed the battery has to be short circuited to the AC. Which is done by taking tweezers. & touching the positive part of the battery to the part of the watch marked AC. Then try to pull the crown all the way out to time setting position press the top rt button & the second should move keep moving until it lines up with zero. If you haven't had the battery changed try what I told you to do with the crown & the top right button.
