Got my wife's salt water damaged timex heart rate monitor watch here. Opened it up, and one corner of the screen looks a bit faded and there's white corrosion mess. Can I dip in metho to clean away residue...


Do not use any chemicals. They will damage your watch. The only thing you can use is ZIPPO, RONSON e.t.c. lighter fluid, but do not dip any watch parts in it. You have to use cotton swabs. Dip the swab in lighter fluid and then clean the parts. Do not use a lot of pressure. Change the swabs constantly and blow off excess of lighter fluid all the time. It will take a while, but this is the best solution. When part is clean enough, use dry cotton swabs to clean off the oily residue. Rate me, plz.

Start buttons don't work after battery change Adidas Sports Timer


You will have to open your watch, because the contacts or contact springs are not stiff enough, so, you need to make them stiffer.
Do as follows:
1) Open your watch caseback
2) Extract the movement (carefully and using tweezers), do not touch dial with fingers,
3)Take small brush and lighter fluid (ZIPPO) and clean all pushbuttons in case from inside and out pushing them rapidly, then use dust blower to dry the fluid out,
4)On the movement you will see contacts corresponding to each pushbutton on the case. Use needle or sharp metal pin to clean (scrape) off any visible residue from these contacts till they are shiny.
5)Pull all contacts on movement sligtly outwards using tweezers but be careful not to brake. This will make them stiffer.
6)Reassemble the watch and the problem should be sorted.

WHERE CAN I GET A RESERVOIR FOR MY CARTIER LIGHTER


The reservoir tank can be the bane of existence for a Cartier lighter owner. Unlike most butane lighters which have gas tanks integral to the lighter, Cartier utilizes a user removable tank. Cartier only warrants the tank for two years. I've also seen tanks that say 12 months. New Cartiers come with one spare tank. I've seen spare tanks come up on eBay from time to time, for $30 - $50. If not, picking up a beat-up Cartier on the cheap just to remove and use its tank is an idea. Cartier does not sell spare parts of any kind (other than flints), so if your lighter needs a new tank they will probably insist you get a complete maintenance service, which can cost up to $300.

Pocketwatch runs fast


Such a fast gaining usually is caused by dirty or magnetized hairspring, resulting in uneven coil amplitude (some of the coil rows are sticking together or touching each other). This causes the watch to run unbelievably fast.
To get the watch properly fixed you need to give to the watchmaker.
Alternetively; you can fix it yourself, but it will not last long.
For this you will need:
Case opener,
Dust blower (resin ball with nozzle),
Lighter fluid (ZIPPO),
Dropper (like one in eyedrops package).
Do as follows:
Open watch caseback,
Check for the fastest moving part in watch movement and you will see the hairspring fitted on it (pulsing outwards and inwards very fast).
Fill the VERY CLEAN dropper with lighter fluid.
Put ONE drop of lighter fluid on hairspring (DO NOT TOUCH IT),
Wait for a 10 seconds,
Dry out the lighter fluid with dust blower by vigorously squeezing it and pointing the nozzle on to hairspring from approx. 2-3 inches away.
Lay the watch on the table (dial down) and cover it with a clean, dustless cup. Leave for 15 minutes.
Fit the caseback on and enjoy your watch again.

No, this is not a battery issue. Anyway you will have to open your watch, because the contacts or contact springs are not stiff enough, so, you need to make them stiffer.

The setup button doesnt seem to do anything


There is nothing to do with battery. You have dirty setting button or oxidized plate contact or weak pushbutton spring. To fix that you have to dismantle your watch.
Take the movement out and clean the pushbutton in case from both sides with tiny brush and lighter fluid (Zippo). Dry out with dust blower. Get small steel pin and clean (scrape) coresponding contact on plate clean of any visible residue. Use dust blower again. Strengthten coresponding contact spring by slightly pulling it outwards. Reassemble watch.

Good luck
