Cant replace XG-55 battery

I can not figure out how to remove the back of my XG-55 case to replace the battery. I have removed the four screws without trouble, but the case does not come off nor offer a spot for prying it off

altitude changes depending on pressure; because you are along ocean, you experience it more than usual.
M problem is that temperature remains higher than normal one (30°C), can you solve it ?

Looking at pictures of the watch , you will need to remove one side of the strap by undoing the screws on the side of the strap.
once you have removed one side of the strap unscrew the four screws on the case back of the watch.
then you will be able to lift the case back of the watch , it has a rubber seal on it which you need to carefull not to break.
Good luck and be carefull.

How do you replace the battery in a ironman triathlon sleek digital watch


Thank you for contacting FIxYa.
Turn your Timex Ironman face down and remove the four screws holding the back cover in place.
  • Remove the back case cover by gently prying it up with your screwdriver. Be careful to avoid disrupting any electrical contacts with the tip of your screwdriver.
  • Remove the interior sticker that covers the battery by lifting it up with the tip of your screwdriver. It should come off relatively easily. At this point the small circular battery should be visible in the compartment.
  • Lift up the small metal clip (battery strap) that covers the battery using the tip of your screwdriver.
  • Remove the battery from its housing and replace it with your new battery (available at any electronics store or online). Reassemble the watch in the same way you to took it apart.

    How to change battery on a swatch skin watch


    1. Place the watch in case holder. Place the watch in the case holder, if you have one. If you do not, place it on a soft cloth.
    2. Check for room to work. Check to see if there is room to attach the adjustable case wrench and rotate it 360 degrees. If not remove watch band.
    3. Remove case back. Fit the adjustable case wrench into the slots on the case back. Tighten it down until it is snug. Be careful not to slip with this tool as it can scratch the case back of your watch. Work slowly. When it is unscrewed gently pry up the case back taking great care not to damage the internal gasket. If the gasket gets damaged it will need to be replaced with the battery to retain water resistance.
    4. Remove battery. The battery will be held in place by some type of retention device. It will need to be removed. Some clips will be removed by using tweezers. Some clips may be moved using a screw driver, and some simply bend out of the way slightly. Remember how it was removed as it must be put back in place exactly for the circuit to be completed after battery change. If the clip is removed, place it and any screws in a paper cup to prevent loss. Remember how the battery was seated, plus (positive) side up or down etc. it needs to be replaced correctly to work.
    5. Test battery. Using the battery tester check the battery. If it is dead move to next step, if it is not take the watch to a jewelers for inspection.
    6. Clean and inspect battery box. Inspect the battery box the battery came out of. If there is corrosion take it to jewelers for inspection. If there is light dust it may be cleaned with a clean soft cloth.
    7. Buy battery. Use the numbers on the battery and buy a new one. Occasionally the number will be obsolete and you will be referenced to a replacement battery in the battery charts. This is the time to also replace the gasket if you need to. Check with a watch maker or jeweler, or the watch company to buy a replacement. We cannot stress enough how important this gasket is to a water resistant watch, without its integrity your fine watch may no longer be resistant.
    8. Replace battery. Using the plastic tweezers if you have them, or fingers wearing cotton gloves, replace the battery. Never use bare fingers as finger oils may corrode or short out the new battery. Carefully replace the retention device as it was remove.
    9. Replace case back. Make sure that the gasket is in place, and not pinched or caught in the case back when you set it in place. Screw down the case back using your fingers until it is tight and needs the case wrench. Attach case wrench as before and tighten down the case back.
    10. Reset and clean watch. Using the appropriate method reset the watch. Use the polishing cloth to clean off any dirt and finger prints.
    OR...take to your local jeweler/watchmaker who has the appropiate tools and let them do it for you!!!! :)

    How to replace a battery on a ebel watch?


    The most water resistant watches will have a screwed down case back and crown for maximum water resistance, both of which are backed by internal gaskets. These are the types this articlde will concentrate on. To change the battery in a water resistant watch you will need:
    • Adjustable case tool
    • Case holder ' + google_ads[0].line1 + '
      ' + google_ads[0].line2 + ' ' + google_ads[0].line3 + '

      ' + google_ads[0].visible_url + '' + ' Ads by Google'; } else if (google_ads.length > 1) { s += 'Ads by Google

      ' + google_ads[i].line2 + ' ' + google_ads[i].line3 + '
      ' + google_ads[i].visible_url + '
      '; } s += ''; } document.write(s); return; } google_ad_client = 'pub-8735055091446807'; google_ad_channel = '5953492595'; google_ad_output = 'js'; google_max_num_ads = '2'; google_ad_type = 'text_html'; //google_image_size = '468x55'; google_feedback = 'off'; // --> google_protectAndRun("render_ads.js::google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad);

    Lacrosse xg 55 - Do I need to replace the battery? When I use the light nothing displays is this a battery issue? How do I change it if it is the problem?


    Take your watch to your nearest watch shop and ask them to do it for you.

    You can get into difficulty replacing batteries and it is not worth the risk for
    the small cost saving in doing it yourself.

    Changed battery now it won't come on


    Try shorting the battery case to the watch chassis (using a pair of tweezers perhaps).

    This seems to be a standard instruction and I think this resets the watch.

    The battery of my XG-55 is down. I tried with several watch repair labs, but they told me that after changing the battery, the watch doesn't start again. Any advice?


    When you change the battery on this watch you have to short the circuit board. You need a fine pair of tweezers and you need to look on the circuit board for an arrow or bare spot, put 1 end of the tweezers on that place on the circuit board and the other on the battery at the same time. that should do the trick if the battery was installed correctly and the battery is good.

    For Casio F-91W how do I replace battery? I see 4


    Most of these resin-case F-series Casio sport watches use a fairly large lithium coin cell battery. Once the four screws holding the watch back are removed, you should be able to just pop off the stainless steel spring clip that holds the cell in place and pull it out, without having to remove any more screws. Be careful when replacing the clip, because it is asymmetrical and goes in only one way. Also be careful not to lose the tiny spring contact that connects the watch movement to the piezoelectric sound element glued to the watch back. If you lose the spring, the watch will still run, but the alarm won't sound anymore.
