Open Question

Lacrosse wrist watch xg55 light does not work

My xg55 does all functions except the light that illuminates the dial does not work. Is this a function of the battery needing replacement? The symbol for low battery does not display itself on the face of the watch

SOURCE: How do I set a LaCrosse WT-961 (B) watch?

This watch automatically sets itself. I you live in the eastern time zone, you just have to wait for the watch to receive the signal then it will set itself to the correct time & date. The signal is strongest at night between the hours of 10:00 pm & 2:00 am so it normally takes over night to set. Sometimes the weather interferes with the signal so I tell people to give them a couple of days to pick up. Also if you are having trouble receiving the signal try placing the watch by a window. If you do not live in the eastern time zone try these instructions:

Hold down the button for 2 seconds until the time zone abbreviation & zone flash the keep pressing the button until your correct time zone is displayed. Then wait about 8 seconds for the watch to return to normal display. Then you just have to wait until it picks up the signal & sets itself. I hope this helps.

U.S. Polo Watch (US8170 on back)trying to keep the light on

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.

I replaced my battery in my fossil blue watch and it still does not work

If your watch is equipped with an illuminated (pushbutton) dial, it may have two batteries as does mine. One is easy to access, the other that supplies power to the movement requires removing the works to replace it. They chose this arrangement because the illumination requires more often replacement than the one used for the movement.

I have a timex HRM. The indigo light just stopped working. I've had it for 3 weeks. There is a faint light on the edge, but it doesn't illuminate the face. Everything else works normal. Any ideas?

Check out if your watch has second battery for Indiglo function. It is quite common for Timex watches to have two batteries - one for movement and another for Indiglo.

I have replaced the battery, but it didn't work. I've tried to reset the watch, but it didn't work. What have I to do to reset the WV-57H after a battery replacement?

If your watch has any kind of illuminated dial or dial light, you may have found the battery for that instead of the one powering the watch itself. I have one similar and did that same thing only to find that the watch still wouldn't run.  The battery that powers the illumination is larger and in my watch, the battery for the watch portion is half the size and located below and to the side of the other cell.

I have a G-Shock watch. One with Atomic and Solar recharge. They say it is water proof but after I stuck my hand in water to clean my fish aquarium everytime I twist my arm the light comes on. This causes...

Wow, you are retarded. That's a function of the G Shock watches. I don't know who would actually use the auto light function, but its there. To turn off auto light, hold down your illuminate button for 2 or 3 seconds until you hear a beep. Holding down the light button toggles between auto light on and auto light off.
