Question about Polar F6 Wrist Watch

Connection Problem between the LCD screen and PC board

I have a Polar F6 wrist watch. Recently it died and I went to replace the battery but I seperated the LCD screen from the PC board. When I snaped everything back together and properly replaced the battery everything looked fine. All LCD segments lit up until I pressed the "OK" button. When the "OK" button was depressed it appeared that the elastometer connection on the rear of the LCD was not seated correctly with the traces on the PC board because the information displayed was unreadable. I have tryed a couple of time to correct this but ended up with the same results. Does anybody have any suggestions?? Thanks Tony

    I have the same problem but don't see where taping will correct it. I haven't actually put the tape on but I'm holding it and pushing it together and see no change in the screen. What am I doing wrong?

Sometimes you can solve this sort of problem by sticking a couple of small pieces of tape on the front side of the lcd screen in places where they wont be visible on the outside - they will push the screen back onto its connections - there is quite possibly a small piece or seal that is now missing that would have done this job before. If you want to conatct polar directly for help go to this link - you can get a user manual and all the contact details for service etc. http://www.polarusa.com/Products/fseries/f6.asp?cat=consumer My advice would be to send it to them to get it fixed - replacing a battery on its own is rarely all that needs to be done to a watch when the battery runs out - it is a convenient service interval as seals need replacing, parts need checking or lubricating or cleaning etc. Hope this helps :)

Two problems with my Polar F6: 1. There is some fade on in the bottom right of my watch. That occured before my battery was replaced. 2. After my battery was replaced the heart rate has been off by 30-60...

Yes, it is a problem with the installation of the battery. If you did not send the watch into an authorized service center then you should do so this time. It is very easy to damage the circuit boards in the watch if not done properly, plus there is a service warranty when going through the service centers. The fade was most likely from the battery dying, but could also have been from a degraded seal and moisture issues.

I also have "how to" function related info in my tips and tricks page.

I cant see the information on the LCD screen of the polar F6 2007. Is blury and not clear. Can I replace just the screen, where I can buy the secreen?

the only way to replace parts with a a Polar is to send into an authorized polar service center. There is a link on my tips and tricks page.

Generally when the screen is blurry, that is because of condensation in the watch, not the screen being bad. This will still need to be sent in as it means the seal in no longer good. But if that is the case it is less expensive a fix than replacement screen.

Watch stopped working, replaced battery still doesn't work?

The only solution is too send into a Polar Authorized Service Center. Regular watch shops are not equipped to diagnose and/ or fix problems with Polar watches, or most other Heart Rate watches for that matter.

What battery do I need for Polar F6?

Always look at the numbers on the old battery first and replace with the same. If you don't have the old battery then I would check with a local business that sells that watch. Sometimes you might find the battery number engraved on the case back. Hope this helps you,.good luck.
