Casio Pathfinder PAG-50 battery replacement

Hi,

This problem is regarding CASIO Solar Triple Sensor Pathinfinder wrist watch (PAG-50).

A few months back, the battery in my watch died. It would charge when kept in the sun, but discharge in a few minutes. I took it to a Watch Station store and they said the battery is dead. They could not acquire the CTL1616 cell that the watch needs.

Last week I found the battery on eBay and replaced the dead battery as per the instructions at:

http://forums.watchuseek.com/showthread.php?p=296572

After replacing the battery, before closing the back of the watch, I looked at the display and it had the LCD segments ON. It showed 12:00 time and the seconds were ticking. The word 'charge' under the battery symbol was blinking and 'open' was displayed at the bottom of he display.

After closing the back, however, the display went blank. Even after keeping the watch under a light for hours, the battery won't charge even a little bit.

If I open up the back again, the LCD segments turn ON again, and all that I mentioned above happens. But when I replace the back, everything is blank again.

I wonder what the problem is. Is it really a dead battery? or something is causing the battery to drain - something like a short circuit. Should I just give it more time to charge?

Any pointers/insight would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

may be some dust inserted into the watch which prevents you to press the buttons .
another prob might be low battery. put your watch in sun in order to give some power to your solar battery

Casio PAG 40 I took it apart to replace bateries and a spring came out and I don't know where it goes. The 2 gold ones are in place.


It's probably the small spring which makes electrical contact between the watch aluminum back and the outer housing, presumably to provide an electrical ground connection to the outside triple sensor. I've attached a photo with the location indicated by the yellow circle and arrow. It goes in the little hole and will fall out if you're not careful.11_14_2012_6_41_27_pm.jpg

The word "LOW" always appearing


The word LOW means that the solar battery charger is not charging. This could be a defective charger or you're not out in the sun long enough to keep it charged.

Use the four numbers on the back of your watch and you will have a PDF version of your instruction manual.

Not very helpfull


Because it is not a documented problem for this watch in the user manual to be found at http://ftp.casio.co.jp/pub/world_manual/wat/en/qw2767.pdf

Are you sure you acctually have a Casio Protrek Tough Solar Ana-Digi PRG-60T unit or do you perhaps have some other model of Casio watch and have posted in the wrong place on the forum?

Analog hands not moving but digital part works fine.


A Benrus advance is not a Casio PRG-60T Tough Solar Protrek watch. You posted your query in the wrong place.
