Re: side button not working properly
Yes there is self solution,if you have WD 40 put it to the not working button . If you don't have WD 40 you can use also any kind of lubricating oil,take a needle soak it to oil,then put it to the button.Keep pushing the buon so the oil will penetrate down to the spring..

Unless its some model I've never seen all timex watches have four side buttons. Some are really indented, almost hidden, and need to be pushed using a pen cap or something similar. The buttons are evenly spaced two on each side and can look like just hard plastic that will not move but they will if pressed right.
Press the center button marked "T". The watch should beep once;- Touch the center of the touch-sensitive face until 24H Cm appears in the digital LCD display; - Press and hold the center button marked "T" for approx. 5 seconds. The watch will beep once and then again a second time, after 5 seconds have passed. The digital LCD display should now read SYNCHRO; - Press the upper button marked "+" to move the minute hand until it is positioned exactly at 12:00; - Press the lower button marked "-" to move the hour hand until it is also positioned exactly at 12:00; - When both hands are aligned together and pointing directly at 12:00, press the center button marked "T" to save your settings. - Your watch is now synchronized, so no expensive repair work is required!
usually when the watch still works but you cannot make or change any settings and you do not see any reaction or change when you push a button, then it means that one of the buttons is stuck (as if permanently pushed) and the watch will not react to any button until the stuck button is released. Inside the watch there are metal fingers (contact blades) that the buttons actually push, and sometimes one of these finger blades can get stuck even though the button has returned outward. try (with tweasers) to pull on each button to see if it will move outward and allow the watch to start functioning again. If not, then the watch must be opened,and with a fine pin-like probe, each metal finger blade must be tested for proper movement and position. Also, when a battery is replaced, occasionally the housing is not seated correctly when the "movement" is replaced in the housing (if it was removed in the first place), when the cover is back in place, if there is a plastic or metal bezel ring, maybe the ring is not seated correctly. goodluck, Macgivor
Hope you've already got it figured out, but if not... you have to give it a good pull on the back of the link bracelet. Hold it with your fingers on the edges (sides) of the links and give a strong pull just to the side of the round button on the underside of the watch bracelet. One side comes off before the other, so if it doesn't click open, try the other side of the round button. It'll open half way, then do the same thing on the other side. You won't hurt it :) Beautiful watch. Mary
Yes it would seem unlikely that the dial would cause this problem. It is more likely to be the seal if the pusher seems hard to depress. Watches should be serviced every two to three years at which time pusher seals are usually replaced. Recommend you take it to a watchmaker for a service to maintain the watch properly.
1 There should be four buttons: mode, reset, start and light. Find the mode button and press it three times until it is in the set time mode.
2 Find the reset button, which usually is located on the bottom right side of the watch face, and hold it until the time starts blinking.
3 Press the start button to change minutes.
4 Press the reset button again to switch to hours.You will know it worked when the hour starts blinking instead of the minutes.
5 Press the start button to change the hour. The watch can handle two modes: standard and military. As you press start, the hour will change from AM to PM, noted by an "A" or a "P" in the top right. When you get through 24 hours, the watch will change to military time and an "H" will be displayed instead of "A" or "P." Keep pressing start to go through another 24-hour cycle and it will revert back to standard time.
you need to calibrate it.
go to the '24h Cm' screen [T button, then touch centre screen few times]
hold down T button for 5secs
use + button to bring minute hand to 12 o clock position
use - button to bring hour hand to the same place
press centre of screen and it's done!
if your hands aren't straight when you use the compass try this to sync the hands.
1. Press and hold the middle button to enter T-Touch mode. 2. Press the centre area on the face twice to display 24hr/12hr 3. Press and hold the middle button to enter T-Touch mode untill screen says sync.The hands will face 1200.
4. Press either the upper (East) or lower (West) button to adjust the compass hands. They should both face 1200. 5. Press the middle button to get back to 'regular' compass mode. Note that your offset setting will still show in the digital area.
