Question about Casio Wave Ceptor WV57HA-1AV Wrist Watch
Thirteen days ago, my Casio digital Wave Ceptor watch reset itself to January 1, 2005 and I am unable to change it back as I don't have the instructions anymore. It is also not showing the "recieve" signal (aka the little satellite pic on the bottom right corner). I live in Toledo, Ohio. A friend said her atomic watch also was not working. Why can't I get my watch to display the correct time and date? I have a module N0. 3053 and without worning the watch reseted it self to Jan. 01, 2005. When I try to adjust it I receve on the lower segment RC! (what does it mean?). And then I receive ERR. Impossible to make it working again. Any solution please?.
My Casio wave ceptor keep resetting itself like this when the bottom right (D button) is pressed. I need to make sure I reset the city code or before trying to receive as it defaults to Tokyo. Press & hold the top left (A button) and date changes to city code. Scrole through codes using right bottons.
Hope this helps.

My Casio Wave Captor does the same thing, maybe once about every six months. While annoying, it's no big deal and easily fixed.
Here's the link for the Casio user manuals. While the appearance of your watch might be different, the 3723 model has the buttons in the same place as the 58-8 model that I have. Just go to the timekeeping section and see how to set the year, date, and time manually. Once that's done, the watch should correct itself overnight. http://waveceptor.casio.com/support/manual/

I have two of these watches. The fault occurs entirely randomly - day or night, when I'm wearing them or not, inside or outside. They both recently went for more than a month without misbehaving, then they both reset themselves three times within one morning. Resetting (press button A, etc.) is a chore I could do without. I bought an ACCTIM watch, no problems so far,, but it's big and ugly.
As soon as I had posted the above (June 20), I wrote to Casio's UK Head Office (I had to use a government website to find out their postal address) and related my tale of woe. No reply yet. Next stop, Which?

I also have had this Casio Waveceptor 3053 module resetting to Jan1st. 2005 problem. Casio themselves will not acknowledge that there is a problem & don't want to know despite loads of users reporting exactly the same thing. Mine even used to reset randomly when left on a windowsill overnight to sync. up, even after fitting a new battery. The only thing you can do is throw it in the bin & never buy another, I'm afraid.

The problem is poor design of the buttons. If you press the bottom right button, it sometimes resets instead of doing what it should do.
You can't cure the design fault, but you can avoid accidentally pushing the button while it is on your wrist. My cure it to take a craft knife and trim the button down so that it is nearly flush with the watch case. Do the final touches with an emery board (you can get these for nail care).
Take great care not to trim the wach case or to trim the button too far.
These waches are available very cheap, so the Casio is obviously aware that there is a problem that makes the watch difficult to sell. They continue to deny that there is a problem.
