Contact the manufacturer to see what battery they recommend. They should be able to tell you which they used originally.

mcdevito75 here, Double check the battery install, make sure all contacts are clean, with the watch open see all buttons depress and are hitting points on the movement. When done, presss the mode button and display should come up.

As you might have already found, their web site does not offer any facilities to download instructions but they do say " If you have questions about this or any other item in our stores, please call us at Toll Free 888-846-3388".

Give them a try, you never know, you might speak to someone who is familiar with the detailed operation of your watch.

I presume you mean that the battery won't seat properly. Sometimes this can be tricky to avoid damaging something in the watch. I use a bi-nocular microscope to really see what is happening. If I were working on it I would double check to see if you really had the right battery. Then I would see if there are screws to be removed that are holding down the battery clamp. Insert the battery and replace the battery clamp. Also make sure that the battery is not installed upside down. I hope this help. Please let me know how you make out.

It does not have a bulb or LED.
The whole display is a EL backlight.
Mine was out and it turned out to be a broken miniature coil on the PCB inside the watch.
