My seiko s149 with built in printer went blank the other day.

The S149 has 2 sets of batteries

1) 4 X AA for the printer
2) a round "button battery inside the unit for the clock.

Open up the unit, you will see that it takes either a 2450 or a 2032 depending on the model.

If is is a modular battery holder like this, buy from Amazon. If not, you need a Seiko watch shop or Jeweler. ..

Just got a new Seiko watch but the date won't change automatically

Main cause would be that the date gear teeth have been stripped. This is done by setting the date whilst the hands are trying to change the date themselves (between 10pm and 2am). Always adjust the date with the hands around 6.0clock. You will need to return your watch to where you bought it for repair I'm afraid.

How to charge a Seiko Kinetic with an electric toothbrush charger

This is the Sonicare "Advance" model charger. Other chargers will work, but many do not open with screws, they instead are welded or glued shut and must be shattered to get open. I use the Advance charger for my toothbrush and to charge my watches. This model has 2 very simple screws. And the inside is arranged such that a watch fits logically over the flux. Photo 2 shows the bottom of the charger. Photo 3 shows the same charger with the screws removed and the bottom plate removed. In every model of charger there should be a rectangular section and a circular section. The circular section holds the electromagnetic flux generator. That is what will generate the power to charge your watch. In most Seiko Kinetics the Generating Coils lays beneath the 8 o'clock marker on the watch. You would like to have that 8 o'clock marker pointed toward the 9 o'clock spot on the Circle. (See Photo 5) On other chargers and with other watches simply rotate the watch around stopping ever 10 degrees or so for 10-15 seconds, until the watch starts to tick in 2 or 1 second intervals. It may take several days to charge your Kinetic if it was fully discharged. I hope this is helpful
