Hi bcaligaris

Whilst Fidoliedo is techincally correct, you can try another method. If you have a wooden bench or bench with a lip?

Place the back of the watch on it and gently 'snap' a corner in whilst holding the other 3 with parts of your fingers. Rotate your hands to the other corner and try again until it 'snaps' securely. if this doesn't work then you will need to seek out a watchmaker for a casepress to purchase (or as them if they'll do it - a fee may apply)

You will need a special tool to pop it back on. Any other way will result in the crystal breaking.

My g shock ga 100 keeps resetting itself back to 12:00 and the analog doesn't stay synced to the digital i have had a new battery fitted and it still doesn't work any suggestions ??


Hi,
Did you take your Casio to a pro or it was just a normal battery replacement service?.

I am asking because if a pro did it seems he forgot to reset your Casio watch when battery was replaced.
This is a must when you change battery on a Casio digital watch.

Take it again and ask for a complete reset, if they know what they are doing they will do as you ask without questioning.

Putting the back of my watch on after changing the battery


Hi Ken,
Some watches require even pressure all the way around the back at the same time to get it to pop on! You will need to have this done at a jewelry store or watch repair shop. Thank you! Lisa

I have a pocket watch i bought in paris but the battery ranout and i cant get the back off to get the battery out. what should i do?


Hi Josh, I do apologize for the inconvenience.Please try the below steps which should be helpful for you to remove the back of the watch and also replace the battery.
  1. Flip over your pocket watch. Remove the back of your watch. The back of watches are either screwed on by four small Phillips head screws (unscrew them) or the watch has a press inserted back (slide a thin knife blade under the edge of the back of the watch and pry it off).
    (OR)
    Find the small groove on the back of the watch right above the hinge,place the tip of the screwdriver (the small kind used for the screws in glasses) into the groove and gently pry off the back of the watch.
  2. Remove the circular watch battery out of the back of the watch.
  3. Take the battery to any department store or watch store and purchase a new replacement battery.
  4. Insert the new battery into the back of the watch.
  5. Screw on or push on the back of the watch. Set the watch to the correct time.
The above should be of help for you to have the battery on the pocket watch replaced and have the watch working once again.Best wishes for your effort and thank you for your time and patience.

How do I replace the batteries on my Casio Pathfinder PAG40B-2V watch?


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • Choose a quiet, well-lit room where you can replace the battery in your Casio Pathfinder watch. Prepare a table, desk or other clean, flat surface where you can perform your watch repair. Put down a soft cloth or piece of craft felt to protect the face of your Casio Pathfinder watch from being scratched during the battery installation process.

  • 2

    Set your Casio Pathfinder watch face-down on the soft cloth or craft felt. Use an optical-sized Philips screwdriver to remove the four screws that secure the watch back to the body of the watch. Set the screws aside, but don't lift the watch back.

  • 3

    Slide the watch back off of the body of the watch very slowly. There are three important springs held underneath the watch back; it is essential to remove the watch back slowly to avoid losing them.

  • 4

    Lift the three springs out of your Casio Pathfinder watch using a small pair of metal tweezers. Take note of the length and placement of the springs as you remove them. Set the springs aside with the other disassembled watch components.

  • 5

    Take the black rubber protective disk out of your Casio Pathfinder to reveal an identically-shaped white plastic disk. Remove the white plastic disk and set it and the black rubber disk aside. Use your metal tweezers, if necessary, to lift out the rubber and plastic disks.

  • 6

    Release the battery strap that holds the battery in place in your Casio Pathfinder watch by pushing the battery strap latch to the left. Remove the old battery from your Casio Pathfinder using a pair of small plastic tweezers.

  • 7

    Pick up your replacement watch battery with the small plastic tweezers and insert it into the battery compartment of your Casio Pathfinder watch. Replace the battery strap and push it gently with the tip of your plastic tweezers to snap the latch in place.

  • 8

    Touch the "-" and "AC" terminals on your Casio Pathfinder watch with the tips of your metal tweezers for at least two seconds. This helps ensure that your watch will work properly once reassembled.

  • 9

    Put your Casio Pathfinder back together to complete the new battery installation. Start by replacing the white plastic disk, followed by the protective black rubber disk. Use your small metal tweezers to replace the small watch springs in their correct locations. Replace the back cover of your Casio Pathfinder, insert the four screws and tighten them with your optical-sized Philips screwdriver.


  • Best regards. Jewel

    How to open the back of Kenneth Cole KC3434 watch to change the battery?


    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.

    Best regards.

    Cannot get the back on my timex indiglo after replacing battery


    Take it to a watch shop.

    Don't try too hard to get it back on yourself as there is a risk that the back may become distorted.

    Time display does not stay on,I have to push light button


    This can occur for many reaons. There could be a movement problem. But it can also be the battery is running slow. If the battery was replaced recently it could be that it needs to be resett. When the battery is replaced on most digital watches the battery and the AC of the watch need to be shorted.

    How can i remove back cover of mens reaction


    As a certified watch repair tech. I would not recomend changing your own battery. If you can get the back off there is a big chance that you will have difficulty getting the back back on. These watches are meant to be water resistance up to whatever level. When the case is open the seal is broken and needs to be either replaced or silicone needs to be added. This insures that your watch stays water reisitant and now that it is sealed the battery can have a longer life expectancy.
