BASIC WATCH BATTERY CHANGE
Get a replacement battery for your watch. Some watches have the battery information stamped on the back plate. If yours doesn't, you'll have to wait until you've removed the old battery to see what kind of replacement watch battery you'll need.
Lay your watch face down on a non-scratching, non-skid surface. It may help to clamp the watch to the surface.
Remove the back from the watch. You might be able to pry it off with your fingernail, but you'll probably need a stiff, thin tool like a knife or screwdriver. You can also buy watch repair kits, which have the perfect tools for the job. Check the watch back for a small notch to insert your tool, but not all watches have these.
Remove the battery from the watch once the back is off. You might need to tip the watch over to let the battery fall out.
Insert the new watch battery into the proper space, first double-checking its size against the old battery to make sure it will fit. Press lightly into place.
Replace the back on your watch. Make sure you press firmly to get the back seated snugly.
If this doesnt work, then take to a local jeweler/watchmaker who is equipped with the right tools to assist you.
How old is the watch? The buttons could have a build up of dirt around the buttons and that will keep them from working! If thats the case you can take a pin or a very thin screwdriver and run it around the botton to unclog the build up...or you can also take it to a reputable watch repair shop and they can disassemble the watch and remove the buttons and clean it really well.
Its also possible that the watch wasnt assembled correctly when it was closed after the battery change as well. Some movements have a small metal flap that the buttons push against to work the functions. If the flaps get moved then the button might be pushed in and stuck since the flap doesnt push the button back out...OR...there is a tiny little c-clip that holds the button in place and if thats removed then the button might not push back out or could come out of the case all together!
So...check around the button for a build up of dirt first, try removing the dirt with a pin or small screwdriver. If the button comes out then put it in a plastic bag along with the watch so you dont get any moisture inside and take it to a reputable watch repair shop! :-)
Buy a set of precision srewdrivers. Remove back(4 screws),take your 1 mm flat screwdriver and push straight down at the end of the hold down strap at the inside end. KEEP IT TIGHT IN THE NYLON CATCH! The hold down is hooked on the bottom of it. It will release and you will be able to lift that end and replace the battery. Then just push it back to hook it,VOILA! R.J.S.
Try fully draining the battery and recharging it fully. If that does not work chances are the battery is going bad. How old is the dvd player ? If its still under warranty you might be able to get a replacement.
