Hi Ken,
Some watches require even pressure all the way around the back at the same time to get it to pop on! You will need to have this done at a jewelry store or watch repair shop. Thank you! Lisa

Resetting timex ironman triathlon 30 lap FLIX after changing battery


this is the most important and confusing part in my opinion. On the white sticker the directions read: "after battery insertion, short pads to reset". this should look something like an oval with a line cutting it in half (vertically). It is not on the battery but next to it. You will need the paper clip here to hold down the right most side (at somewhat of an angle). this should do it! you'll know if your digital faces flashes numbers at you and may even light up. Make sure you hold down long enough.

6. Once you have the numbers flashing, you are good to go. Put the back of your watch back on, taking note of which screw goes where. Then, set your watch accordingly and you have just changed your watch! Ta-da!

Follow these steps and you should be good. Good luck to all!

How do I replace the battery, in a Casio G-Shock G-2300 9V watch?


Your watch is a solar powered watch and normally you don't need battery change .Nevertheless,if (as it is an old Casio model),you are convinced that battery is the cause of your problems,then replace.
1) You have to be absolutely sure that you are able to carry out the procedure.
2) IMPORTANT!! Pse note that the specific battery IS NOT an ordinary battery as it is rechargeable.DO NOT TRY TO REPLACE WITH AN ORDINARY ONE.RISK OF EXPLOSION on your wrist.+total damage of the watch.New battery has to be exactly the same with the old one (ID.code).Can be ordered on E-Bay,I suppose.
3)TOOLS:Watchmakers screw drivers + philips small size screw driver (for backcover screws) + watchmaker tweezers + 2 finger rubber gloves.
Turn the watch upside down and carefully remove the four screws (try not to loose them).Remove the strap if needed.Gently remove the back cover.Pay attention as there must be 1 or 2 tiny springs embeded on the mechanism.Keep them in place and try not to loose them.You have to remove the plastic cover (pay extreme caution to the spring/s) in order to have access to the battery.Unlatch and remove (if needed) the battery holder ( if can be removed-remember the position to put it back correctly).Take out the battery and check for possible leaks.Check the battery compartment cleaness.DO NOT TOUCH WITH BARE FINGERTIPS THE CONTACTS OF THE BATTERY COMPARTMENT.DO NOT TOUCH THE NEW BATTERY ON BOTH SIDES WITH BARE FINGERTIPS.Use the finger gloves.Put the new battery in place (do not force) and secure back the battery lamina holder.There is a AC(All clear-reset) contact on the mechanism.Using the tweezers touch one end on this contact and the other to the metallic body of the mechanism.Lift the watch very carefully(as it is,upside down-without disturbing spring/s) and check if display is activated.By paying much caution put back the plastic cover correctly in position PAYING CAUTION TO THE SPRING/S. Clean up the back cover,gasket,and gasket furrow from dirt as good as possible.Check the gasket condition.Replace if needed.Apply a little amount of special gasket silicon compound all around the gasket,both sides.Put the gasket in place.Put back gently the back cover and screws in position.MAKE SURE TO POSITION THE BACK COVER CORRECTLY(in place and not upside down).Press it gently when in correct position before you screw.CHECK ALL AROUND FOR CORRECT CONTACT. DO NOT SCREW TOO TIGHT,DO NOT FORCE.Screw with fingertips until you meet resistance.
I hope this will help.
BRegards

Gucci 1100l watch battery replace


The back cover does not screw off. You'll need to pry it open where the narrow slots are next to the watch bands. See video J2KkDFXEEJ4 on youtube for how to do it.

You don't need that special tool, I used a pick hook tool from Harbor Freight #66836 to open it up and it worked fine.

To replace the battery, there are two very tiny flat head slotted screws that you need to loosen (don't need to remove them) to remove the battery hold down (carefully note how it goes in, the two sides of the hold down are different), then you can pop the battery out and replace it. It uses an AG1 or SR621SW or 364 battery, not the 379 battery someone mentioned above.

If the battery leaked you can use a q-tip dipped in white vinegar to clean the battery crud off, then use other side of q-tip dipped in iso alcohol to clean that up, then dry it with another q-tip.

To put the battery hold down back, first put the side that is U-shaped in first, then slip the other side under its screw. Tighten that one down, then tighten the other side down. Put cover back on and off you go!

I used the Harbor Freight #38896 magnifier (without the built in lights, used a better light) and it worked great. Those screws are really tiny and they are hard to see. You'll need a very, very small precision screwdriver for them.

Needs batteries lionel collectable train watch need user guide and battery size


The Lionel Collectable Train Watch has 3 batteries in it. Two are for the whistle and one for the watch. All of them are V377 or 377 disk batteries. Gently pop off the back cover as most watches come off the same way. The battery by itself toward the middle is the train timepiece watch battery and is installed with the + side up toward you. The two batteries toward the edge are the whistle batteries, and you have to be very careful in changing them. Thee us a rotating contact that is plastic coated, over the batteries. NOTE: THE BATTERIES ARE NOT BOTH IN THE SAME DIRECTION. ONE IS UP AND ONE IS DOWN. (LOOK VERY CAREFULLY FOR A + AND - SIGN ON RIGHT NEXT TO EACH BATTERY.) For this reason, it is recommended to only change ONE battery at a time, so you will not get them mixed up. Gently spin the contact one direction, and one of the batteries will be clear and come out. Change that battery. Now rotate the contact back to the original position over both batteries, and continue rotating in that direction until the second battery is clear and can be removed. Change that battery. Now you can confirm that you still have one battery up and one down. Rotate the contact back to its original position, centering it on each battery. This contact has a layer of plastic material covering it on top so that it will not contact the watch case. If this plastic coating is damaged, it can damage the watch. If it is damaged, you might put a small piece of tape over the contact, to prevent other damage. NOTE that close to the edge of the watch is a very, very small spring sticking up. Make sure that spring is still vertical, as it is very delicate and can be damaged easily. That spring as well as the metal arm sticking up are part of the speaker circuit and must be in their place when the cover is replaced, as the speaker is in the cover. Now gently replace the cover until it snaps down. You will see the train moving around the dial and you can push the button and hear the whistle. Incorrect changing of these batteries by persons in jewelers departments of stores like Walmart and Target, have damaged more of these watches than you would like to believe. Hope this helps. (By the way, I do not have a brochure for the watch at this time.)

I changed the battery in my timex expedition watch, and now the alarm doesn't sound. The watch is set for Beep ON, but it never beeps.


Same thing happened to me, took watch to watch shop, they changed the battery and the chimes stopped working. Simple fix, the faceplate was put back on wrong. Unscrew the face plate and turn it upside down (or right side up depending on your POV) the circle on the inside of the faceplate will line up with the springs inside the watch and the chimes will start working again. If you have a pair of eyeglasses screw drivers, like I did, you can do this yourself.

How do I replace the batteries on my Casio Pathfinder PAG40B-2V watch?


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • Choose a quiet, well-lit room where you can replace the battery in your Casio Pathfinder watch. Prepare a table, desk or other clean, flat surface where you can perform your watch repair. Put down a soft cloth or piece of craft felt to protect the face of your Casio Pathfinder watch from being scratched during the battery installation process.

  • 2

    Set your Casio Pathfinder watch face-down on the soft cloth or craft felt. Use an optical-sized Philips screwdriver to remove the four screws that secure the watch back to the body of the watch. Set the screws aside, but don't lift the watch back.

  • 3

    Slide the watch back off of the body of the watch very slowly. There are three important springs held underneath the watch back; it is essential to remove the watch back slowly to avoid losing them.

  • 4

    Lift the three springs out of your Casio Pathfinder watch using a small pair of metal tweezers. Take note of the length and placement of the springs as you remove them. Set the springs aside with the other disassembled watch components.

  • 5

    Take the black rubber protective disk out of your Casio Pathfinder to reveal an identically-shaped white plastic disk. Remove the white plastic disk and set it and the black rubber disk aside. Use your metal tweezers, if necessary, to lift out the rubber and plastic disks.

  • 6

    Release the battery strap that holds the battery in place in your Casio Pathfinder watch by pushing the battery strap latch to the left. Remove the old battery from your Casio Pathfinder using a pair of small plastic tweezers.

  • 7

    Pick up your replacement watch battery with the small plastic tweezers and insert it into the battery compartment of your Casio Pathfinder watch. Replace the battery strap and push it gently with the tip of your plastic tweezers to snap the latch in place.

  • 8

    Touch the "-" and "AC" terminals on your Casio Pathfinder watch with the tips of your metal tweezers for at least two seconds. This helps ensure that your watch will work properly once reassembled.

  • 9

    Put your Casio Pathfinder back together to complete the new battery installation. Start by replacing the white plastic disk, followed by the protective black rubber disk. Use your small metal tweezers to replace the small watch springs in their correct locations. Replace the back cover of your Casio Pathfinder, insert the four screws and tighten them with your optical-sized Philips screwdriver.


  • Best regards. Jewel

    Can't See Display Timex Ironman Triathlon


    I have an Ironman also and I agree it is harder to replace the battery than you think. There are electrical contact surfaces inside that have miniscule tolerances in terms of the spacing they have for clearance. You are expected to press on these things with tweezers to reset the battery (as discussed elsewhere on the web), but if they get bent down, they will short out the circuit (a permanently blank display), or the might be out of alignment (a reset every time you press one of the control buttons on the outide of the watch). If you think this has happened to you, open the case (again) you can use a small tool to carefully lift the metal contact back up off the contact plate. Also make sure the back of the case is on tight as this also plays a role the electromechanics of this watch.

    Other than that, I admit I really like the Ironman, so easy to use and set.

    Good Luck
