Question about Casio Watches

Open Question

I have a GW-1701D-1AV solar powered watch. The watch is only about 6 months old and is constantly turning it self off and resting itself. I have turned the power saver off which does not make this stop. I recharge the watch in full sun every day and it still cuts out for short periods and rests itself. If i replace the battry will this fix the problem or is it another problem.

With most watches, use an Exacto knife to compress the pin to remove it. Replacing the pin is more difficult.

Hi gregbrands,

If your watch is several years old, I would recommend sending it back to Casio for service and battery replacement. Contrary to what you may hear about solar-powered watches, the rechargeable batteries do not always last for 10-20 years. I've seen some go out in 2-3 years. This is a shorter lifespan than most standard lithium watch batteries.

You may have an authorized Casio service center near you also. If not, contact Casio at the following numbers:

For Repair support in USA at 1-800-706-2534 during regular business hours (currently Monday-Friday 9:00a.m. - 5:00pm EST, Saturday / Sunday 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.) For Technical support in USA at 1-800-435-7732 during regular business hours (currently Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. - 8:00pm EST for all products, Saturday / Sunday 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m)

The cost of your watch well justifies this kind of service, plus, they will assure it remains waterproof up to its specifications.

Let me know if I can help further.

Thanks, Bill

On the solar charge watches, they use a chargeable Lithium battery. It is NOT an off the shelf regular battery! It is best to send the watch to the factory service rep in your area for a battery change.

In many of these models the battery is using solder contacts to the circuit board. The person changing the battery will require the original spec battery, and be equiped to do surface type soldering.

When working on this watch, the factory service will change the seals and do a pressure water resistance test. The regular corner watch service store is not equiped to do this type of testing.

Normaly, the battery in solar watches should last more than 5 years. Some are going past 10 years!

Try taping it to the inside of your window for a couple days and see if that makes it charge up enough to act right. You might also want to make sure that you don't have the "auto light" on. If the light turns on when you tilt the watch to a 45 degree angle then press the light button for 2 seconds to shut that off. If that doesn't work for you then you are probably going to have to have the battery changed.
