Blank displayI have tried to reset this with no success Any ideas will be gratefully welcome


Have you considered that a dead battery might be the cause of this. They don't last longer than a year. I would not attempt to change the battery on your own if you would miss this watch if you broke it. I change batteries nearly everyday and the digital ones are by far the most difficult. If you did change the battery on your own already the reason it is not working is because you negated to short the battery. Digital watches sometimes need to be shorted after a battery replacement to turn back on take a pair of metal tweezers and put one end on the positive side of the battery. Look for a little hole with a contact on it that's either A/C or reset. Put the other end of the tweezers here. If that doesn't work a tiny spring feel out of the watch is not replaceable and you must therefore replace the watch if that is the case. Hope this helps.

Timex Rush Indiglo Watch: shorting the AC pad to the battery


If you take a jeweler's lupe near where the arrow is you will see the word "reset" in the plastic.
There is a deep hole in the plastic with contacts below. That is the reset, and that is why you must use very sharp pointed tweezers to make contact with the back of the battery.

I think if you do not have sharp tweezers, you can probably put a sewing pin down the hole, and then connect with a small screwdriver to the back of the battery..

I have a timex exped. that looses time i changed the battery twice can you give me some suggestions on fixing this problem ?


Generally speaking if a Timex needs more than a new battery (cell) it is new watch time. Anything else is either too expensive (more than a new watch) or can't be fixed. Make sure you have the cell in correctley, if there is a reset, reset the movement. This is often a matter of shorting out a small pad to ground with metal tweezers.

How di i change the batteries in my Casio Pathfinder 2782


  • Choose a quiet, well-lit room where you can replace the battery in your Casio Pathfinder watch. Prepare a table, desk or other clean, flat surface where you can perform your watch repair. Put down a soft cloth or piece of craft felt to protect the face of your Casio Pathfinder watch from being scratched during the battery installation process.

  • 2

    Set your Casio Pathfinder watch face-down on the soft cloth or craft felt. Use an optical-sized Philips screwdriver to remove the four screws that secure the watch back to the body of the watch. Set the screws aside, but don't lift the watch back.

  • 3

    Slide the watch back off of the body of the watch very slowly. There are three important springs held underneath the watch back; it is essential to remove the watch back slowly to avoid losing them.

  • 4

    Lift the three springs out of your Casio Pathfinder watch using a small pair of metal tweezers. Take note of the length and placement of the springs as you remove them. Set the springs aside with the other disassembled watch components.

  • 5

    Take the black rubber protective disk out of your Casio Pathfinder to reveal an identically-shaped white plastic disk. Remove the white plastic disk and set it and the black rubber disk aside. Use your metal tweezers, if necessary, to lift out the rubber and plastic disks.

  • 6

    Release the battery strap that holds the battery in place in your Casio Pathfinder watch by pushing the battery strap latch to the left. Remove the old battery from your Casio Pathfinder using a pair of small plastic tweezers.

  • 7

    Pick up your replacement watch battery with the small plastic tweezers and insert it into the battery compartment of your Casio Pathfinder watch. Replace the battery strap and push it gently with the tip of your plastic tweezers to snap the latch in place.

  • 8

    Touch the "-" and "AC" terminals on your Casio Pathfinder watch with the tips of your metal tweezers for at least two seconds. This helps ensure that your watch will work properly once reassembled.

  • 9

    Put your Casio Pathfinder back together to complete the new battery installation. Start by replacing the white plastic disk, followed by the protective black rubber disk. Use your small metal tweezers to replace the small watch springs in their correct locations. Replace the back cover of your Casio Pathfinder, insert the four screws and tighten them with your optical-sized Philips screwdriver.

    How to change battery


  • Spread the towel out on a flat surface.
  • Remove the watchband if necessary in order to access the back of the watch.
  • Unscrew the back protector from the watch using the correct size miniature screw driver. Place the screws in a small pile on the towel. Be careful not to drop them as they are difficult to find.
  • Remove the back plate by unscrewing the small screws. There is a tiny spring on the underneath of the back plate. It may be visible, or not. Make sure not to turn the watch upside down or the spring will dislodge.
  • Remove the rubber protector to find the battery.
  • Use sharp point tweezers to remove the clasp covering the battery. There is a small hole at one end of the clasp. Insert one end of the tweezers into the hole to spring the clasp loose.
  • Remove the old battery with tweezers.
  • Insert New Battery and Reassemble Watch
  • Pick up the new battery using regular tweezers and put it into place. Do not touch the battery with your fingers.
  • Replace the clasp over the top of the new battery.
  • Perform a reset by touching the AC contact with one part of the tweezers and the back of the battery with the other part. Hold for a few seconds. Lift the watch carefully and look up at the front to make sure the watch is working. Do not turn the watch over.
  • Replace the rubber cover.
  • Replace the back plate by screwing the small screws back into place.
  • Replace the back protector by screwing the small screws back into place.
  • Reattach the watch band to the watch face.

  • Feel a bit unnerved by this? Find a local jeweler. Best regards.

    How do you change the battery on an ebel watch


    Unscrew or pry off the case back. Remove the metal strap holding the battery in place. Sometimes you have to remove screw in the metal strap. Look on the battery for the type and order by that number. Put back in with fingers or plastic tweezers. Do not use metal tweezers as it will short the battery.

    I just replaced the battery on my polar watch and 'error' and the number 6 is on the screen. Nothing i do will unfreeze this or change it. Have already tried to take the battery out and put back in


    You probably need to "short out" the battery before you can set it.
    To do this you need to remove the caseback and apply a tweezers to the battery and the "AC".
    The AC is usually labeled and it looks like a little gold cricle near the battery in the watch. (I realize there may be more than one gold colored small circle in there, and if it's not labeled it will take trial and error.)
    With the tweezers, or paperclip would work, touch the AC and the battery at the same time and hold for a few seconds, then release and repeat once more. This should get your watch reset and ready for you to set.

    Changed dead batteries on PAG-40. Still one dead watch


    There is a very small sticker with very small red print just adjacent to the battery compartment. This little sticker states "once batteries are replaced, you need to touch AC with tweezers". I did it with metal tweezers and the watch display came to life. Good luck!
