Question about Casio Watches

I am replacing the battery for a Casio #3011. Inside the back plate of the watch there is a note. "After battery replacement, contact AC with battery( ) using tweezers." What does that mean (procedure)? Thanks--Gil

If you look at the circuit board above the text there should be two contacts. Use something to short them "tweezers". After that it should reset and work again.

Hi,

it is a tricky way but it can be done...
remove the clockworks completely (that's including the plastic casing) from
its housing
separate the plastic frame from the clock
remove the little screw you spoke about earlier
look at the edges of the big battery clip holder, they latch to the clock
housing at three locations,
pry-off the cover plate...Presto battery can be removed. Before you
reassemble in reverse order make sure that the pushbuttons in the housing
can move freely, lube with light oil if necessay or remove them completely
to remove sweat and dirth

How do I replace the batteries on my Casio Pathfinder PAG40B-2V watch?


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • 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 iI open a casio 705 woman watch?


    Thank you for contacting FixYa.
    You will need:
  • A jeweler's screwdriver- Either flat head or Philips, depending on the model of watch.
    A cup or small box-This is to hold any screws.
  • How to change a Casio watch battery:
    1. Spread a cloth over your work area The cloth will help you avoid damaging the finish on your watch.
    2. If necessary, remove the watch band Removing the band gives you easier access to the back plate.
    3. Remove the back plate For some models this means using a screwdriver to gently pry it open, and others require removing screws. Keep small screws in a container to avoid losing them!
    4. Take note of the rubber seal Sometimes they need to be reinstalled in the same orientation. You might even want to use a marker to make a small "match mark" before removing it.
    5. Locate the battery It looks like a small metal button.
    6. Remove the battery You might need to loosen (not remove) a small screw and slide a latch out of the way. For other models, it's as simple as popping open a strap that is stretched across the cell.
    7. Install the new battery Make sure it's in the same orientation as the old one. They usually go in with the positive (+) side down.
    8. Perform a reset Do this by touching one tip of the tweezers to the AC contact, inside the watch, and the other tip to the back of the watch battery.
    9. Make sure the watch is working properly Carefully lift the watch to do this. Don't turn it over or the watch movement might fall out.
    10. Reassemble and seal the watch Perform steps one through four in reverse order to reassemble your watch.
    Best regards. Jewel

    Battery Replacement


    Do not lay the tweezers across any contacts as you may damage the watch.
    First you need to examine your watch movement and find an AC point (contact). Use an eyeglass, as the writings can be very tiny.
    When found, touch an AC point with one arm of tweezers and battery+ with another arm simultaneously.
    Some watches needs to do that twice, so, to be sure, do that twice.
    If you are not comfortable with tweezers, you can use a thin wire, connecting one end of the wire to AC point and another to battery+.
    Each shortcut should last for 3 seconds.

    Do not forget to rate, please.

    Buttons stopped working


    Probably you changed battery youself. If that's right, then open watch again, take battery out and check it with tester if it is fully charged. If yes- put battery back in place and secure the contact. Now carefully check for AC sign on movement. When found- take fine tweezers and connectAC with battery+ for 3 seconds.
    Watch should work now, but resetting is needed. Use your watch manual to reset all watch functions.
    NOTE: Some movements require connect AC and+ twice. This should be written inside caseback or on battery cover.

    Good luck.

    Please help me to replace battery on my casio F-91W


    This reset trick works with other Casio Alarm Chrono digital watches, such as my old Model W-720, similar to your F91-W. After the new lithium coil cell is installed and secured with the spring clip, the watch may show random segments in the LCD display or may simply be blank. Insert a sewing needle, paper clip, or blade of a small jeweler's screwdriver into the hole on the back of the movement stamped "AC" (All Clear) to momentarily connect the gold plated contact at the bottom of the hole to the stainless steel battery clip. The battery clip in most such Casio watches is connected to the "+" terminal of the coin cell. This will reset the CMOS chip and it should start up with the watch displaying 12:00 and the date at 1-1. Then, use the control buttons to set the time and date in the normal fashion.

    I have a similar model.  The electronics sometimes needs to be reset after the battery is changes.  Get a magnifying glass and look closely at the stainless frame around the battery.  There is a small AC mark and a triangle which points toward a small gold contact down in an adjacent hole.  This contact must be shorted momentarily to the + side of the battery to reset the display.  You can bend a metal paper clip to make the connection.  You may have to try several times before it resets. It should reset to 12:00 and start running.

    CASIO SPF40 battery replacement


    "AC" means All Clear. This terminal should be marked somehow. Use a magnifying glass to get a good look at what you are working on. My Casio had an arrow pointing to four copper leads. I used a paper clip to connect the AC terminal (I just picked one of the four) to the + side (usually the "up" side) for a couple seconds and my Casio Sea Pathfinder model 2273 powered right up. See the following link for more guidance.
