Re: I have lost the back cover of my watch. Had a new...
Alot of times the company will help you with this problem, get ahold of them first. If you have no luck there, fined yourself a reputable watchmaker who probibly will be able to fit one on for you. You are lucky it is a round back,any other would probibly be near imposible to fit. If you still have problems let me know . I have been a watchmaker for 24 years, my father was a watchmaker for 50, and my grandfather was a watchmaker for 50., between what I have gathered in 24 years and my family, I should be able to help. Good Luck!!

If you experience no sound (alarm) from your watch after battery replacement, that means the coil spring fell out of watch while the battery has been replaced. Coil spring is transmitting vibrations from watch movement to the sound membrane at the back cover of watch, and if it is lost, there is no physical body to transmit signal, thus no sound. Coil spring itself is quite tiny and can be easily lost without even noticing it, mostly because it is not soldered to the watch movement or sound membrane and as soon as the opened watch is turned over, the coil spring fells out. If you are not able to find the coil spring in/around the place where the battery change took place, there is no other solution but to visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask to fit new one. In case if you are lucky enough to find the coil spring, fit it back in to appropriate hole in watch movement inserting out-bent end into movement. In most watches coil spring holes are marked: C.SPRING/COIL SPRING/ C.S or similar. Hope it helps.
The battery of my Casio 1846 W-71 was dead, so I tried to replace the battery by myself.
First, you need to get a hand on a CR2016 3-volts battery. It could cost you 5$ or 10$, but I got 5 of them for 1.50$ at an electronics discount store...
Get a precision screwdriver, remove the 4 screws. Be careful when you remove the cover, there's a tiny spring. Remember where it is, then remove it. Remove the watch from the shell.
Using a flat mini screwdriver, remove the cover that holds the battery. You'll need to unclip all 4 corners. There are centers to unclip too, not sure if there was 2 or 4 of them.
Remove the battery, place the new one. Clip the battery cover back, and put the watch back in the shell.
I closed the cover. The watch was showing time, buttons were working, but no sound at all. Looked on the Internet, and read that you need to short circuit it.
Look carefully, there is a label "AC" near a small hole. (Inside the hole you'll see the gray spike of a welding). Just touch something metal inside the hole (e.g. the welding spike) and then touch the positive (top) side of the battery. Put the cover back in place, press a button and listen for the beep.
mcdevito75 here, Hello Traudl, I see what you mean by not seeing or haveing that little tab on the back cover to pry off the back. I'm not an expert but do know a little about watches. Look again for this tab on the back cover, use a magnifier glass available at all Dollar stores to see this tab. Of course you may be right and there isn"t a tab, in that case look carefully between the back cover and the case of the watch for a cutout, it should be somewhere between the back cover and cvase of the watch, it"s very easy to miss this is why I suggest the magnifier glass. If by chance the back cover has square holes going around it"s circumference, then you would need a special tool to unscrew this back cover, I don"t think so though. If all this fails then your best bet is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area for a new battery. Hope I've helped.
Your watch case back (battery cover) actually lost it shape some how that's why it's not closing, it's need alignment,
which take lots of time try expert watchmaker hope you get it fix.
even thought it fix some time it's lost capability to keep your watch save from water.
hope this info help
If your databank is like mine (DB-35H), there is a TINY spring in a really unusual spot that you probably didn't notice that fell out. Laying the watch face down and with the back off, there is a little tiny hole in the back towards one of the corners. (sorry, already put my watch back together and didn't notice which corner.) There is a tiny (1/16" x 1/4") spring that sits upright in that hole. It must make a contact with the metal cover. I replaced my battery and when I did, a spring fell out. I looked all over the internet, then wrote Casio, who said they didn't have access to the information about where the spring went. (Doh!) I got a used DB-35H from my brother and was going to swap the innards when I noticed the spring on his. Put my spring back and it beeps! If you've lost the spring, don't know if you can fake it with tinfoil or not, but it really is a TINY spring. Good luck.
