Performing Watch Battery Replacement

There are different types of watches worn, from the simple, casual designs to the large, Swiss-made pieces of art for the elite. Regardless of the type, they all need routine care and maintenance to keep them running and looking good. One of the best long-term investments you can make in a watch is in battery replacement.

When it comes to watch battery replacement, the first step is to test the battery and ensure that it is the source of the problem. There are numerous watch and battery testers available that will allow you to test watch movement while it is closed.

Once you have determined that the battery is the problem, open the case. As you are proceeding with this process, confirm what kind of battery you have and the correct size replacement you will need. Take a note of the current battery number before you remove it. This will be helpful in case the batter slips out of the case and gets lost. For some batteries, you may need to reset the movement before they can function again.

When you have finished changing the battery, replace the back on the watch before putting it on again.

You have to know that analog time "follows" digital time.Any hour/minutes correction on the display has direct effect on time/minutes hands.Some times, mostly after battery replacement,hands might have declination.That is why there is a function so called "Hands home position adjustment".Using this function you can align both hands to 12/00 position.If there is any declination (I think is your case) you can correct.Try to enable this function by pressing for 4-5 sec the upper left button(A) until "HAND SET" appears.If hands are not aligned exactly to 12/00 position, you must correct by pressing the lower right button (D) for forward movement or the upper right button (B) for backward movement.In fact, minutes hand is aligned,hour hand follows.When both hands are set to 12/00 (home position) press button A again.Time Mode returns to the display.Normally hands will now show exactly according to digital (display) time.I hope this will help.

I take mine to a watch dealer to get the right, freshest battery from someone with the right tools to install it. Peace of mind.

take it to a jeweler and they will send it to casio to remove a link. The clip may have movable anchoring points . You need a pin to push in the pins inside the link on both sides. then move the link and re anchor the band under the clip.

The red circle is the strength of the receiving signal for time calibration! The 3 sectors are to measure the strength of signal! 3 is max strength and 0 is no strength!

Shortcut battery with AC contact. AC can be found on the sides of watch movement(very tiny). You have to use pointed tweezers: one end on battery+, another on AC contact for three secs.

The Casio wave scepter watches often got put on sale because the booklet was thick and the sales staff inside their steel shell stores could never prove how it worked. I bought 3 from Sears at a low price.
Ok, I am in northern ontario, and I set the watch around a non metal tube or box - like a paper towel roll or small pop bottle and set it on a south or west facing window ledge. Works best on a top floor. Position the watch so the 12 is pointing to Fort collins.
My casio at this distance doesn't pick up the radio signal until sometime between midnight and 6 am. It has a setting that reveals if it did sync and reset the time, and will show at what time it sync'ed.
casio watch manuals are available online. As long as you have set what time zone you are in, it will set the time.

Read the manual that came with the watch.
The battery could be too low. Try it in complete darkness (closet) and see if there is any glow at all.
Make sure you are pressing the correct button.

I have a number of these Casio and Citizen watches. This watch does not use GPS for the time keeping. It uses a land based broadcast time signal. There is public information about where the signals come from for your area. The technical breakdown of the time code signal is public access information.

The instruction manual of the watch has the information about when your watch should automatically receive the time signal, and how to set up the watch. Many of the manuals also included a map showing the time signal coverage, and includes the time of day information to show when the signal is strongest.

Make sure the watch settings are for your time zone. This is important. If the main time zone is not for your area it will be trying to receive the signal at the wrong frequency at the wrong time of day. There are areas where the signal may not be able to be received. You can get the mapping for this from the service that the watch has been set to use.

In North America the auto time receive is supposed to take place between midnight 00:00 to 04:00. In the eastern part of North America the reception is poor compared to central and western part of North America. Check the instruction manual for your watch for details.

Below is the spec listing of your watch.

That is a strange question. Usually you set a watch to the current time and date. Use the manual. With the module number in hand, you can visit the Casio world website to download the manual for the module of your watch.

Try this:-

First set the watch to 24 hour format rather than 12 hour format.

If you are in the US or Canada the signal is coming from Fort-Collins, Colorado. If you are too far or there are atmospheric perturbations along the way, at the times the watch is in automatic receive , the watch may not receive a strong enough signal to synchronize itself with the atomic clock signal. The watch is not always able to do so.
Read the manual where it is suggested that you put the watch on a window sill, the dial facing outward with 12 at the bottom. Do not move the watch when it is trying to receive a signal. If you have a signal strength meter, orient the watch so that the signal is as high as possible.

I think you have the wrong time zone selected. Some zones are 30 min. off the rest. just in case

Instruction book page E-23. To turn auto receive on or off. In Timekeeping mode press D (Lower right) to display last Signal screen. It should say GET at the bottom and show the last time it updated. (Or ERR) Hold down A until the receiving indicator and current auto receive setting (ON or OFF) start to flash. Press D to toggle auto receive on. A again to end.
If you tried to make it receive manually this will be turned off. If the GET screen said ERR then it did not update and auto receive would still be off. I had to do the manual thing about 20 times before it updated. A upper left C lower left D lower right A upper right (light)
