That's a "REALLY TRICKY BIZ MAN !!", opening the watches is nerve racking to say the least. Just out of curiosity, was your watch a "waterproof watch" by chance? They have these intricate rubber gaskets, so small I can't think of anything to compare them to & when you go to change the battery, even when a pro does it at the store, it does not always work!(I got a free new watch when my $6 replacement battery messed up the timer, and couldn't be fixed properly !! Felt sorry for the clerk, & HAPPY for me !).

I don't men to insult you in any way, but are you 100% sure you have "ALL" the pieces, and they arer all in the right place? Of course the other obvious thing is to just go to Walmart, or some lower end jeweler, and ask for some advice, help, or even "Ya got any great deals on a watch man? "
Good Luck To You !

The indiglo technology is time limited (it dims over the years with use) and cannot be repaired - have you had the watch a long time? if so, I'm afraid it's time to get a new one. Sorry!

New batterys can go bad, that is why they have a warranty. Replace the battery

There is no separate battery for the indiglo,maybe indiglo circuit is lose or defected already,just open the watch and check for lose connection.If happen the circuit is tight and still not working then replace the indiglo circuit.

Hope it may helps you;
