This solution worked for me but I also had to bend the little copper tab upward so that it made good contact with the plastic pad stuck to the inside of the back of the watch

I have a similar Expedition watch, and I had the same problem today. I found that the watch back was installed 180-degrees off. I rotated the back 180-degrees and the beep is back now. (The piezo-whatever beeper is located in the watch back, and the little copper "tab" needs to touch it for the beeper to work).

I have turned my sound off on my watch and the alarm sound but when I am working out my watch beeps at every heart rate, its annoying I know there is a way to have no sound, I had it that way before but...

Assuming that your limits are set correctly, this is a job for a Polar Authorized service center.

There is most likely a problem with the computer, depending on the age of the watch this will be taken care of under warranty. The link above explains the process.

If you replaced the battery yourself (never recommended) some contaminant could have gotten into the electronics, or the seal is no longer working allowing moisture into the unit. These are highly sensitive electronics and should only be handled through the service centers. The work they do is covered with a warranty and they replace seals and vaccuum pressure the watch to make water tight again, as well as run a diagnostic on the computer.

In the mean time if you don't want to send in you can set the Heart Rate limits - both low and high well above your actual limits and that will stop the beeping, as the beeping while you are working out is an out of limit/ zone alarm.

Lost the beep on my timex watch alarm

Try taking the back off and orientating it the other way (i.e. turn top for bottom). You don't have to screw it down to see if this will work. As soon as the back clicks in you will be able to hear beeps as you press the buttons

No alarm, chime, or beep battery is hew, all displays are working, just no sound.

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

Hope this tip helps

My diesel watch gets reset everyday dz-7044110703

I have the exact same problem. The watch was working fine up until I had the battery replaced. I went to another watch repair shop (couldn't go to the same one as I had moved to another town) and the chap there explained that with Diesel watches, when the batteries are replaced a small button inside the mechanism must be pressed to reset the settings, if this isn't done then the annoying problem, inflicting our watches, will occur.
My watch worked fine after, for a few days, then it began to reset again; casting doubt on the watch repair man's explanation. I'll go back to see the chap when I have the time, prob next week and keep you chaps posted on anything new.

Timex IndiGlo Ironman Triathlon - bell stopped working

You have lost the coilspring wich connects the watch mechanics with the speaker integrated in watch caseback. This is why you do not hear any sound but still can see the icon.
Check the area where you made the battery replacement very carefully- you may find that tiny spring. Use the magnet if necessary.
If you can not find it, go to the nearest watchmakers shop and ask to supply the new coilspring.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Resetting sound

Could the jeweler have inadvertently damaged the beeper in the watch when he changed the battery? I'd tell hime the problem, ask him to restore the sound and see what he says ("oops" is a bad sign).
