How can i get water out between 2 glasses on casio pro trek 2894
Bad one having water inside your Protrek or any watch for that matter-mechanical or electronic.
It means one of your seals has failed most likely the back one.
Look carefully at the back seal, if you squeeze the back plate, and the main case between your thumb and index finger you may notice a slight movement (use x10 magnification) That microscopic gap is enough to flood your watch and the deeper you use it the bigger the flood. The problem is the case, it is made of cheap nasty plastic and over time it deforms and the rubber seal contracts. Any slight over tightening of the screws, pulls the plastic thread out and stops the back plate making a good seal between the back plate and the rubber seal in the groove of the main case. For the price one would be excused for expecting that these Casio watches had a better quality case, even better a screw on back plate (like a proper 100m depth watch) rather than the individual 4 screws at each corner and a prayer. There are ways of fixing the screw threads but it never lasts....
To get the moisture out, just remove the backplate and discard the batteries. The sooner this is done the better the chances of success. Leave the watch open, face down in a warm place, preferably loosely covered by a glass bowl to stop dirt getting inside. After few hours check if the water is gone. If on inspection of all the contacts they do not exhibit any rust or white chalky deposits. Replace the new batteries and reset the watch by shortening the reset pins. If all seems ok and you have a proper display and all funtions works. You may purchase a new seal from Casio or simply clean the existing one with a little blu-tak to remove the dirt and run A LITTLE!! bead of vaseline along the rubber top to aid the seal.
I will not use the watch under water anymore and chances are that it will be downhill for the watch from now on, sorry.
I hope this helps

My watch Casio buttons has stopped working, what is the problem.
What Casio model is it?
Do you still have a bright display?
Have you tried removing the battery to reset it?
In some Casio watches like the Protrek range the back light button fails to activate the display light. This is sometimes caused because the earth flange that completes the circuit when pressed has bended to far or snapped and fails to complete the circuit.
More info about the watch may help find a solution. mean time change the battery it may start working again. Good luck
