Make sure your new battery is not flat and on full power. Sometimes batteries are not fully charged as they discharge over the time and as they are stocked in large quantities, some of them get discharged even they are sold as brand new.
When replacing battery in your watch, make sure you keep the right polarity. Plus and minus must match appropriate contacts. After replacement connect AC and plus side of the battery at once for 2-3 seconds - this will reactivate watch and you will need to set the watch manually.
If you did all this and your watch don't work at all, there is some fault in watch mechanics and you have to look for watchmakers help.

Changing batteries on a Casio G-Shock Cockpit watch


yes. wrong battery possibly...
395/399 = SR927SW/SR927W

The 395 is a lower power output but same voltage (1.5v). The power spike of shorting might have caused a spike in the watch electronics.. make sure they are right polarity too. These batteries are not high current items, but maintain their voltage over the 5+ year lifespan. The S and SW are basically interchangable except for the higher amerage output.

Those batteries are compatible. The reset isn't working right. You may need to send the watch in, or take it to a repair shop that is familiar with that watch. You can probably find one in any large mall...

How di i change the batteries in my Casio Pathfinder 2782


  • 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.

    I have a Casio GW 9050, label on Battery clip says ''After battery replacemetn contact AC with Battery + using tweezers''. I've read here before that you need to use a paper clip or tweezers to ground the...


    First of all, the battery goes in with the writing on top so you can read it when it is in the watch. By trial and error, I happened to use the second hole at the bottom left. To orient yourself, look at the watch, and just turn it over face down. There is one hole at the 6pm position and another one at about 7 pm, use the 7 pm one. I pressed down with one end of the tweezer and touched the battery with the other end. This reset the watch, and then I used the normal buttons (mode/adjust) to set the time and date.

    Battery Replacement


    Do not lay the tweezers across any contacts as you may damage the watch.
    First you need to examine your watch movement and find an AC point (contact). Use an eyeglass, as the writings can be very tiny.
    When found, touch an AC point with one arm of tweezers and battery+ with another arm simultaneously.
    Some watches needs to do that twice, so, to be sure, do that twice.
    If you are not comfortable with tweezers, you can use a thin wire, connecting one end of the wire to AC point and another to battery+.
    Each shortcut should last for 3 seconds.

    Do not forget to rate, please.

    Battery replacement for a G-shock.


    The reset trick works with other Casio Alarm Chrono digital watches, such as my old Model W-720, as well. After the new lithium coil cell is installed and secured with the spring clip, the watch may show random segments in the LCD display or may simply be blank. Insert a sewing needle, paper clip, or blade of a small jeweler's screwdriver into the hole on the back of the movement stamped "AC" (All Clear) to momentarily connect the gold plated contact at the bottom of the hole to the stainless steel battery clip. The battery clip in most such Casio watches is connected to the "+" terminal of the coin cell. This will reset the CMOS chip and it should start up with the watch displaying 12:00 and the date at 1-1. Then, use the control buttons to set the time and date in the normal fashion.

    How to get casio sea-pathfinder working after replacing batteries


    This certainly put me on the right track,but i found on my pathfinder mod 2271 that the four brass dots located down in the hole were unacessable with standard flat head tweezers so I inserted a small sewing needle and touched one of the brass dots while bridgeing the distance from the needle to the positive (+) surface of one of the four batteries with tweezer legs.

    Casio Altimeter watch, no instructions


    I was just gifted an old casio pathfinder model 1675 with the manual.

    when inserting a new battery.....step #4

    AC (AC CLEAR) touch the AC contact and the battery +(positive) side with metal tweezers for about two seconds.
    Contacting the AC (all clear)is necessary when a new battery is installed to clear the previous memory to avoid erratic display..
    I am going to get a new battery for it soon I want to play with it....and figure out how navigate through the functions.

    oh yah......the pictures are extremly small but the AC contact point is apparently marked? inside the case obviously next to the battery close enough for the needle nose tweezers to reach each contact. I havent unscrewed my case yet, I want to have everything I need at hand like the battery before I dive into this thing. I dont mean to dumb it down, I was trying to keep it simple as the manual is 55 pages and a little confusing. I hope this helps the battery problem. I will try to delve into the reset problem from the other post..each function appears to have a reset option ......maybe crack the case open and try the new battery all clear thing with tweezers...maybe this would reboot so to speak the entire watch , being mine does not work and have only had it in hand for two hours I am pretty clueless, I was looking for how much the watch costs...i didnt relize it was a fairly old model, the new ones with the compass look very cool. anyhow goodluck
