Bought a nice Expedition awhile back and after a couple months I pushed a button to access some function and the watch froze up on me. The analog hands still worked but no digital, no alarm and no Indiglo functions. I returned it to the point of purchase where it was exchanged for a new one. Now, about 2 months later, this one has done the same thing. Everything's frozen except the analog hands. Timex supprt says send it in but if there isn't a quick easy fix I think I'd rather just return it to the store where I bought it. Anybody have any suggestions?
Pushing all the buttons at the same time you resets the digital functions. You'll have to reset the time and date, but it will all work again. I don't know why the watch freezes up, but pushing all the buttons at least resets it.
I like my watch and this quirk is an annoyance, but it's livable after finding this solution.

Press the "Mode." button three times (the "Mode" button is the one next to the lower left of the dial when facing it).The first time you press you'll see the ST, or stop watch function, the second time you'll see the AL, or alarm function, the third time you'll be back to the time of day function but the seconds will be flashing.
Change the flashing seconds digits to read 00 by pressing the "Start" button (the "Start" is the button next to the upper right of the dial when facing it).
-To advance from the flashing seconds' reading to the hour of the day's digit/digits you press the "Reset" button at the lower right of the dial,
-To advance from the flashing hour digit/digits to the minutes digit/digits you again press the "Reset" button,
-To advance from the flashing minutes digit/digits to the month's digit/digits you again press the "Reset" button,
-To advance from the flashing month's digit/digits
to the day of the month's digit/digits you press "Reset,"
To advance from the flashing day of the month's digit/digits to the day of the week's abbreviation you again press "Reset,"
-To advance from the flashing name of the week's abbreviation back to the seconds' of the minute you again press "Reset," and from there you can go through the cycle again.
While the hour of the day with its A[M] or P[M] designation, the minutes of the hour, the month of the year's number, the day of the month's number, or the abbreviation of the day of the week's name is flashing press the "Start" button once, repeatedly, or hold it down to advance the number or letters to their correct designations.
Once all designations are correct push "Mode" so that none of the numbers or letters are flashing. Your watch is now set.
if it is the Batman watch that has a secret screen that lights up when you pushed the bottom middle of the watch face this is what worked for me.I call that secret middle button the mode button. push and hold that secret button on the watch face until the hour side of the time starts to blink. let go when you see the hour blink and then you can keep pressing to change the hour. to change the minute I let it go back into sleep mode then press and hold the secret button on the watch face and when it starts to blink let go for half a second and then press down and hold that button again and a minute numbers should start blinking. when they start blinking let go and then push once for each minute. it seems once you start one of these cycles letting go for half a second and then pressing and holding the mode button works. you'll have to experiment with how long to let go and then push.
Ok, it took awhile to remember, but to reset the analog time or the day or anything else, first push the "mode" button which is at the 8:00 position on the side of the watch, 3 times. The first push will bring up the stopwatch, the 2nd push will change the alarm time, the 3rd push will highlight the seconds which on the watch face is at the 6:00 position. Release after the 3rd push and push the "reset" button which is located at the 4:00 position. It will start flashing the hour first. If that is what you need to change, then push the "start" button which is at the 2:00 position. Either keep pushing the start button to set the hour or hold the button in if you have more than a couple of hours to change. When that is done, if you need to change the minutes, push the "reset" button again and the minutes should be highlighted and do the same thing with the "start" button until you have the minutes set where you want. When you are done changing whichever thing needs to be set, including the alarm time, push the "mode" button and everything will stay set. This is for the Pop Art 693 AD watch which if you buy through ebay, it's an awesome watch with dual analog/digital time displays, etc. it comes with no instructions. If all else fails, go to the jewelry counter at a Walmart and hopefully the worker there can help. We found that once with a different watch. I hope this helps everyone!!

All watches are preprogrammed for all the functions, so, there is no possibility to make it glow for longer or continuously unless you press and hold the light button or just repeatedly push it again and again. Do not forget that prolonged use of light function will shorten watche's battery life significantly.
The nice thing about Timex is they have a 12 month warranty that covers just about everything. If you have had the watch longer.... Get the batteries checked. Battery life is typically about 2 years. If the battery is fine then you can try having the watch reset but in most cases the LCD board or circuit board is damaged the watch has to be replaced to have it function correctly.
