Question about Timex T5K018 Ironman Triathlon 30 Lap Flix Watch

1 Answer

My son received a new Timex Ironman 30-lap watch as a gift but the screen has always been blank and we don't know how to turn it on. Does this mean we need a new battery, even though the watch has never been used?

It is possible that the battery is dead even if the watch is new. The watch may have sat on the store shelf for years draining down the battery before it was purchased.

Perhaps it didn't even come with a battery installed although that would be more unusual.

Occasionally a new watch will have its battery installed, but wrapped with a plastic strip or cover over the terminals to prevent it discharging while in the store.

Either way, you will have to remove the back cover to check. You can do this yourself or you can bring it to any jewellery store and have them do it. They don't usually charge any more than $10 parts and labour to change the battery in a watch.

Here are a few Youtube videos on how to replace the battery on similar watches and a review:

Good luck, hope this helps.

My Ironman has EE:EE on the display, The Chrono reads "Memory Full". Does this mean I need a new battery?


I doubt if your watch is faulty. If you read your instructions I would expect you to be able to empty the memory.

You can get instructions from the Timex web site "timex.com".

At the bottom of the screen click on "manuals/downloads", then on "product
manual download"

Enter your watch type in the search box and click on "search"

There are two ways to find the user manual for your Timex watch.

  1. Find your watch on the list below and click on the language link for your manual.


  2. Find the 3-digit module number located on the caseback of most Timex products and click on the corresponding language link for that number in the Module Table.

If you are still unable to locate your user manual, you may email Timex Customer Service or call us toll-free at 1-800-448-4639.

I want to know how to turn on the hourly chime on timex ironman 30 lap watch


I have a Timex Men's Classic Digital Silver-Tone Expansion Band Watch #T78587. To turn the chime on and off on this watch, I press the Start/Stop button on the top right once. This toggles the chime on and off. If you hear a single beep then you have turned it on. If you hear no beep you have turned it off. You can tell the chime setting by looking at the colon seperator between the hours and minutes. If it is flashing then the chime is on and if it is not flashing then the chime is off. This is not explained in my watch manual nor in any of the manuals I downloaded from Timex.com.

Eliminate half moon from dial of a Timex Ironman Triathlon watch


You need to hold down the Indiglo button for 4 seconds. The half moon means that night mode is activated, and it will tuirn itself off in 8 hours (which I'm sure you know by know, seeing how it's been 5 years).
