Mcdevito75 Here, The battery could be loose makeing a weak connection or the LCD screen could be going bad, Have a small watch repair shop in your area check it out. If you can do so yourself be very carefull as too much pressure on the battery (PRESSING) could destroy the LCD face of the watch, also if the display (FACE) of your Casio ever goes black, even if display returns, the LCD is going bad.

The altimeter on my Timex Helix reads LO and can't be changed. I changed the battery -- anything else I can try?


Timex Helix ABT.
This watch calculates altitude by measuring air pressure and relating that value to the international standard atmosphere. 1013.25 mb = 0 metres.
The Timex ABT does not display negative altitude values. So if the measured air pressure is greater than 1013.25 mb and the altimeter is reset (select altimeter, pull out the crown 1 click and press and hold the lower left button) the watch will display LO. You can experiment with this. Wait till the barometer reads 1013 or 1012 and reset the altimeter. The watch will display zero or maybe 5 metres. Or wait till the pressure goes up to, say, 1022 and reset the altimeter. The watch will read LO again. If this happens alot, you probably live fairly close to sea level. What you can do to trick the watch is use a vacuum cleaner to raise the perceived altitude of the watch then calibrate the altimeter (pull out and rotate the crown) and change the altimeter reading to, say, 200 metres. It wont read LO then. Keep an eye on it and the atmospheric pressure. If the pressure starts to rise then adjust the altimeter accordingly. Remember this watch is designed to measure proper altitudes where the air pressure isnt likely to be as high as 1013.25. If you are mooching around near sea level the naturally changing air pressure will often make the watch read LO.
If you live up in Montana at 1500 metres (ISA standard pressure about 840 mb) all the time then the watch will always read a positive value and you can calibrate it from reference to a map or road sign etc. The atmospheric pressure will unlikely reach as high as 1013 up there and the watch wont read LO.

Digital display on my NEW casio baby g is too faint for me to see


Hi,

I fix watches as a hobby, and I had a few that corrected this by replacing the battery. If that does not work then the quartz movement probably got wet. you would have to pop the case open remove the movement and clean it gently with a q-tip. You will also be able to see if the issue is with the plastic case that can probably be faded from wear or moisture. The plastic case can be cleaned with a q-tip with alcohol. Be careful not to get any liquids, magnets or dirt near the movement. I hope this helps! Marcelo

MTG 900 SAYING "CHARGE" AND I'VE BEEN PUTTING


I am assuming you are reading the battery charge correctly. If so you need a new rechargable battery. Special battery so it is a little expensive. Make sure the person knows it is a "rechargable battery" you want. A regular battery will not work properly or recharge.

I have a Duo 1025 for women. The watch doesn't seem to detect the chest strap transmitter. It was working alright when I bought it and tried using it a few times. But now the watch is not giving a...


Make sure the battery is placed underneath the small copper clip (positive lead) inside, else the circuit isn't complete. It's pretty easy to clothes the battery casing with it above the lead and not even notice it.
