    First thing to look at is the battery. First indication of a dead battery or nearly dead is the light no longer works. And actually if anything else is wrong it is time for a new watch as Timex watches are not repairable.

I have a two year old timex indigo which the green light feature no longer works. The stem no longer presses down. Any suggestions will be appretiated.


Hello Pat Trevino,

My best suggestion is to send (or take) your watch
to your NEAREST TIMEX authorized service center.
(see Returns below: Contacts: address & phones)

The FIRST watch I ever bought for myself is the TIMEX Automatic... Still keeps good time after 51+ years
(certainly better than I do)...

Since then I have gathered a few more watches,
chronometers & chronographs.

How to remove stem on timex indiglo WR 30M ?


Insane as it seems, apparently the Indiglo wr30m watch stem does NOT have either a set screw or a release button. No vice needed though, just good fingernails. Pull it out one click to the 'set time' position and pull it out some more and it comes out.

Hello, I just bought a Timex Acqua with Indiglo


Depending on when you bought your Timex, you shouldn"t need a battery just yet, your Timex came with a good battery. Look under the stem (winder) for a small piece of plastic that is not allowing the stem to go all the way down, remove that piece of plastic and push the stem down and your Timex will start. Or if your Timex has buttons, look for a tab of plastic on the back cover, this tab of plastic is keeping the battery from (ground) a complete circuit remove this tab of plastic to start your Timex. Changeing the battery while fairly easy, you"d need jewelers screwdrivers and of course the new battery, Best Bet, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for the battery change.

The light was fading on my Indiglo Timex watch but it was still keeping good time, so I had a new battery installed by a Walmart employee. The light now works on the watch but the watch stopped keeping...


mcdevito75 here, Your Timex watch is most likely an Indiglo meaning light, The battery supplies power to to Quatz mechanism for time keeping and for the light. There is a very good possibility that 1 or 2 of the contacts between the battery and the Quatrz mechanism were lost during the new battery installation. While you can"t rule out that the Quartz mechanism and or the light may be wearing down, you still have to suspect the battery even a new battery, look for a small watch repair shop in your area and try another battery, let the jewler know of your watches problem so he / she can properly install the battery and ensure the contacts between the Quartz and the battery are being made.

After about two years, my indiglo night light function stopped working. The watch is still working, keeping time. Will changing the battery fix the indiglo problem?


Definitely, battery change will solve the Indiglo light problem. Many of wristwatches has separate battery for Indiglo function, but my advise is to change them both at once - will be cheaper for you.

Rate me, please.

There is no separate battery for the indiglo,maybe indiglo circuit is lose or defected already,just open the watch and check for lose connection.If happen the circuit is tight and still not working then replace the indiglo circuit.

Hope it may helps you;

Timex indiglo. Indiglo feature died.


The indiglo technology is time limited (it dims over the years with use) and cannot be repaired - have you had the watch a long time? if so, I'm afraid it's time to get a new one. Sorry!

Timex Expedition Indiglo light no longer works?


Replace the back cover with the arrow pointing directly at the stem. Everything should work correctly with the cover in that position.

Keeping time and indiglo light not working


check to make sure the button is making contact with the circuit board. It may need to be adjusted. Try and manually make contact with the copper contact. If it lights, then just adjust the tab.
