SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Timex Rush Indiglo Watch: shorting the AC pad to the battery

If you take a jeweler's lupe near where the arrow is you will see the word "reset" in the plastic.
There is a deep hole in the plastic with contacts below. That is the reset, and that is why you must use very sharp pointed tweezers to make contact with the back of the battery.

I think if you do not have sharp tweezers, you can probably put a sewing pin down the hole, and then connect with a small screwdriver to the back of the battery..

I just replaced the battery on my Timex WR100 watch, but can't seem to reset it correctly. There is a sticker on the original battery "AFTER BATTERY INSERTION SHORT AC PAD AND BATTERY (+) TO...


It sounds like you're not far off. Peel the sticker back a little, and see if there is a small contact point (usually yellow metal) - this should be marked 'AC'. Short this to the + for 3 seconds, then repeat for good measure. If that doesn't sort it, try taking the battery out, wait about 30 seconds then put it back in and reset if necessary. If there's still no display, obtain a known working battery and try again.
If you still have no display, it's time to give up and admit it's dead.... unless you've been using a plastic coated paper clip.

Good luck.

CHanging battery on timex expedition, cover says


If you don't have the proper tools I recommend that you not do this yourself. You could scratch the case or damage the movement if you don't know what you're doing. If it's a water resistant watch the gasket also needs to be replaced once it is opened. DO NOT reuse a gasket! For about $8 any watch or jewelry2_bing.gif store can change the battery and renew the gasket for you.

How can I reset the "short AC pad and battery (+) on timex expedition


You know where AC pads are right? If you don't know, look at the sticker. there is an arrow on the sticker. An arrow points out 11'oclock.
After insert the bettery, you just touch the golden pads with metal screw. that is how to short AC pads.

After replacing a battery in a timex ironman with data link, they tell you to short the ac pad and the vss pad. Were are those points located?


You will find them on the module itself.
So after replacing the battery look on the PCB (printed circuit board) for the letters"AC" and "VSS". Adjacent to these markings there should be little contact points (probably gold or silver looking in colour)
Use a paper clip or similar and bridge (short) these two points simultaneously. Please rate my solution.
