2.0 out of 5 stars Great.... until the battery goes, 2 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Casio Men's Wave-Ceptor Combi Watch (Watch)
I like the watch and the radio controlled stuff was great... until the battery died after two years. Try getting it changed. Most shops will not touch it. I was quoted £25 and four weeks for a replacement battery (the watch has to go back to Casio apparently). Eventually I found somewhere that would try to change the battery but they warned me:
1. It might not work properly afterwards; because
2. There is some sort of internal reset button which Casio will not reveal.
They were right. It does not work properly. None of the buttons function and the time according to the digital read out is now stuck on a timer/stop watch. The time reads 8:12 instead of the actual current time of 4:27.
Great watch stupid system and I have just written off a perfectly serviceable watch because of it.

You shouldnt just ditch it because this has happened. I got my battery changed at Timson Ltd, the people who do shoe repairs. It cost 10 pounds and took 5 minutes. It sounds as if it just needs the internal reset, which is done by placing tweezers ocross 2 points. But, if you want to do it yourself given that you have written the watch off, undo the back and remove the battery for 5 minutes and that should work just as well. You also have to be careful that the small strips of metal under the buttons do not become unaligned. The Timson people had this problem and they had to take the back off again and poke them with a pin to make sure they were being depressed as they should. Your watch is not broken, take the back off and have a look.
