I don't know what the problem is but the most common problem is a poor reception area. Yep, just like your tv used to have problems picking up that distant signal, so can your watch. The solution is the same for both problems. Get your watch into a better reception area. The signal is a relatively weak AM radio signal coming from Colorado Springs, Colorado. Find the least obstructed spot you can to place your watch, for example, if you live in Seattle, place the watch in a east facing window that doesn't have a building or mountain or some obstruction the radio waves will have trouble with and turm on the function in your watch that searches for the signal or if you don't know how to do that, leave it in the window over night. Other things like cloud cover and meteorlogical events can also affect the signal strength.
Alas, you may also have a watch problem for which I have no idea. Good luck, Michael, Watchmaker to the Stars!

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.

G Shock G-600 Reset


Dual batteries should be installed [+ to -][+ to -]. There may be a hard-to-read diagram that shows installation. You may have to take the watch to a jeweler to get things straightened out.

Battery Change on T-Touch


there usually is an AC contact point to reset digital watches. Touching the + and the ac point with a conductive wire usually resets the watch. Not sure about the spring- I'm not going to open my Tissot up unless I have to.
