SOURCE: new battery inserted.digital part of watch shows

First, take the back off the watch and make sure that the movement is inserted correctly. When buttons dont come back out it is usually the movement in the case wrong or the back is put back on wrong. If it is a pop off back then you want to be sure the dimples in the back are over the stem and crown and buttons so they move freely. Also, be sure that any springs that were in place are still in place.

Now i dont know what brand or model of watch this is but most digital analogs have a stem and crown to set the analog. Pull out the stem to the first position and set the time.

For specific instructions please leave the brand and model.
Thanks!

I looked up the web site for Timex and called the Customer Service line. The technician there helped me set the time and other features over the phone.

Hi john30x,

You have to calibrate the compass.
1. Press the upper right button (switching to compass mode)
2. Press and hold upper left button. The "CALL" will appear on the display. You are in compass calibrating mode.
3. Rotate the watch horizontally (around his vertical axis) slowly, so to be sure that he point the North at least 2 times.
4. Now press the upper left button again to input the
declination (this is the angle between the magnetic and real pole). It is different for the area around the world, that you want to explore.
5. Switch between the positions of the cipher by pressing bottom left.
6. Change the cipher by pressing bottom right.
7.
Switch between the active position by pressing bottom left. Now you have to enter East or West declination
8. If you are ready press the upper left. "END" of calibration will appear on the screen

Once you calibrate and set the declination you can use the the compass by pressing upper right button. As the compass is very sensitive It is good idea to calibrate it on a field, far away of metal objects and electromagnetic fields (cables, ect.). You need to calibrate the compass each time you want to use it by different surrounding.

Remember the compass function of your watch need much more energy than the watch itself. Don`t worry to change the battery when dead. The water resistance remains good even after. Very robust and accurate device. I hope that should help.

Seiko 5m43 fails run after cell replacement


Hi, Look on page 11 of your manual for the proper procedure to restart watch after a battery change, or complete discharge of capacitor system. If you don't have the manual, Try this link:
http://www.seikowatches.com/support/ib/index.html

Take the four-digit module number from the back of the watch, enter it, and download a PDF of your watch setting-instructions/manual.
I hope this helps you. Thanks, Bill

I think that the battery needs replacing.

Take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for the small cost saving in doing it yourself.

There seem to be three possibilities
(1) the battery is not taking charge

(2) the generator is not charging the battery

(3) you need to swing it for much longer (one maker said swing their watch several hundred times!.

I suggest your try the easiest first i.e. No. 3.

If this does not improve things, go to your nearest dealer and discuss your problem with him.

If you need a service center, you can find out where one is by going to their web site (seiko.com) and click on "support".

You have to change battery. 3 years was a quite long service time for one battery. After replacement your watch will work as brand new. Rate me, plz.

Cmpass (COM)
The integrated compass tells you the direction (e.g.SSW for south­southwest) as well as the number of degrees. To determine a direc­tion,hold the watch horizontally with the 12 o'clock position poin­ting in thedirection you want to know.
General information about the compass
The compass always points to the magnetic north pole.Maps are always drawn in alignment with the geographic north pole (verticallyupwards at 90 ). The declination angle denotes the deviation between themagnetic north pole and the geographic north pole. This deviation depends onwhere you are located. To obtain exact results, the declination angle must beentered into the compass.Remember to change the angle when travelling abroad.Within the UKthere is no need to change the angle because deviati­ons are only slight.Overleaf you will find a table showing the declination angles for a number ofcities around the world.A fault has occurred if the display shows"ERR" while taking a direction or calibrating the compass. Thecompass must be re-calibrated (refer to section after next) .
