How to get casio sea-pathfinder working after replacing batteries

The "BATT" came on and I replaced the 4 batteries. On the back of the watch on the inside it says "After battery replacement contact AC with battery (s) using tweezers"

Please explain this to me.
Thank you

This certainly put me on the right track,but i found on my pathfinder mod 2271 that the four brass dots located down in the hole were unacessable with standard flat head tweezers so I inserted a small sewing needle and touched one of the brass dots while bridgeing the distance from the needle to the positive (+) surface of one of the four batteries with tweezer legs.

Got a sea pathfinder and just got it back after sending it away to get batteries replaced. Worked fine for a day or two but now none of the buttons work at all - it is still chugging along keeping the correct time but no buttons including the light works - is there a manual reset procedure without taking the back off?
Cheers

On my older pathfinder the AC arrow pointed to a hole in the white plastic shield below with 4 "brass" dots. Connecting these to one of the batteries in place restarted the watch.

Hi,
I have a old PAT-400 pathfinder and was trying to figure out how to get the watch working again after that battery replacement. Seen your post and noticed I had the AC text stamped into the internal plate. If you look at the circuit board above the text there should be two contacts. Use something to short them "tweezers". After that it reset and I'm happy again.

I just replace the battery for a casio watch 2315 but it still does not work


Hi, I just encountered the same problem today as I was changing the battery and I found the solution. First make sure when you are changing the battery that the watch stem is pulled out; then after the battery has been replaced, and before you put the gasket and back on you will need to "reset" or "hotwire" the battery ....you are going to likely need a magnifying glass to find a tiny ac symbol on the back of the watch (without the back cover replaced)...just next to the ac symbol is a tiny hole. Take a piece of wire, or in my case I used an unfolded paper clip, and put one end of the wire in the hole and the other end on the back of the battery (the +/positive side should be facing up). Leave the wire in contact with the ac/battery for 5 seconds, then remove. Next replace the rubber gasket, then the back and the screws. Lastly, push in the watch stem. Your watch should now work. I found out through considerable research that almost all digital watches will need that "hotwiring" step performed after the battery is replaced.

Buttons stopped working


Probably you changed battery youself. If that's right, then open watch again, take battery out and check it with tester if it is fully charged. If yes- put battery back in place and secure the contact. Now carefully check for AC sign on movement. When found- take fine tweezers and connectAC with battery+ for 3 seconds.
Watch should work now, but resetting is needed. Use your watch manual to reset all watch functions.
NOTE: Some movements require connect AC and+ twice. This should be written inside caseback or on battery cover.

Good luck.

Replaced battery, now no beep.


I have a Timex Digital Heart Rate Monitor 585 (product code T5C351F5)m, which has the same Short AC Pad and battery +ve message. There is an arrowhead pointing to the pad. It's a raised metal platform - a bit different to some of the Ironman's mentioned above. Here is a pic...6e1fe0e.jpg
