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.

    That should have read backplate, but you get the gist.

Timex expedition compass, alarm does not sound since battery replacement.


You will find an arrow head on the outside back of your watch where all the printing is. When you put this lid back on, this arrow needs to be aligned with a notch on the inside edge where the cover goes on. As you are looking at the watch from the back with the cover off this notch is in a northwesterly direction. If you doubt it then just hold the back on without popping it in all the way and hit your mode button to make sure that you hear the beeps again. If you do, then you've found the right spot...

Lost the beep on my timex watch alarm


Try taking the back off and orientating it the other way (i.e. turn top for bottom). You don't have to screw it down to see if this will work. As soon as the back clicks in you will be able to hear beeps as you press the buttons

I recently had my battery changed on a timex expedition adventure tech altimeter watch, now the chime doesn't work and the alarm doesn't beep. Please help. Thank you.


You can attempt to have the circuit board reset if it has an "AC". This may or may not fix the problem. Usually when a sound board goes out you have to replace the whole circuit board or movement.

No beep, no alarm, no sound at all after battery replacement and after resetting the watch. The watch is the Expedition.


I think you put case back wrong way ,, or a small spring which connect caseback with watch movement feil during battery change that also ma be a issue.

Beep and chime will not work


I think there would have been a minute spring coming from the back of the watch module to the backplate of the watch - this spring carried a vibration / beep which echoed off the backplate. Chances are you have damaged this spring during battery change - as i did with my gShock. Basically it's nackered!

You probably lost SPRING COIL while changing battery. It connects movement to sound membrane. See watchmaker to sort this.

No sound


This solution worked for me but I also had to bend the little copper tab upward so that it made good contact with the plastic pad stuck to the inside of the back of the watch
