Replace the battery, the solar part doesn't mean it charges from the sun it has to do with the movement of the arms (I'm not %100 what that means) I just know it doesn't charge by the sun or any other light source.
stick the mtg900 in a window sill for a day and that should charge it completely. If that does not work that means you will need a new capacitor. It might be easier at that point to buy a new or pre owned on ebay . they go for like 60 dollars or so. even though they are solar they still need a battery to store the electricity needed to run the watch. A capacitor will need to be replaced from every 5 to 10 years.
I couldn't find your model on thier web site but this range appears to have solar panels to charge the battery. Place your watch in bright sunlight or under a lamp (not a hot one) to charge the battery.
From your description the solar cell charges the battery and keeps it topped up. I think the rechargeable battery is the problem because when the screen goes blank the battery level drops to low and the LCD blanks out which would explain the intermittent operation of the watch. I think it is worth getting it checked out with an estimate.
Is it SOLAR?
I have a Casio Pathfinder, SOLAR, ATOMIC! They have a permanent battery!!!
It must be exposed to the sun occasionally to charge.
If yours has nothing on the display, try putting it out in the sun for a day. Put it in a window, sitting on a window sill. Depending on how little charge it has, it may take as long as three days to charge.
Otherwise, the alternative is calling Casio, getting an RMA and sending it to them for a battery replacement.
if this is the same as my watch, it's solar powered and when it gets TOO LOW< it will blank out and begin to charge . Stick it in direct sunlight for a day if you can. You can also stick it under a regualr lamp, but it will never get fully charged, but it should be enough to operate at least. The battery meter is the top middle dial on the face.
