Question about Casio E-DataBank DBCW1501 Wrist Watch

Casio DBCW150-1 Databank watch (battery change)

I have a Casio DBCW150-1 Databank watch that is getting close to needing a battery change. I don't know why Casio stopped making these, they are great watches. My problem is that I have tried changing batteries in these (regular databank watches) before and they never worked afterwards. Something about grounding the batteries to reboot the watch. I was wondering if this watch was similar to those, and if so, can you give me any pointers on the proper way to accomplish this battery change. Normally I would throw it away and buy a new one, but I can't find one anywhere, since they have been out of production for quite a few years. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thank-you
Steve

    Just did this to my Casio 2296. (DBCW150) Take a twist-tie off a loaf of bread, or some such thing. Strip both ends of the wire clean. Take the back off the watch with a 00 Phillips screwdriver. Do NOT turn the watch body over, or one of the three tiny springs might fall out. (They touch contact areas on the back plate.) Just leave it flat on your work surface. Find the hole in the plastic marked "A". You'll see a teeny contact on a circuit board at the bottom of the hole. The entire oddly-shaped metal plate on the back of the plastic piece inside is the "-", or ground, contact. (Somewhere on that plate is a circle with the "-" mark inside.) With your clean-ended wire, touch one end to the "A" contact in the plastic hole and the other end to the "-" metal plate. Hold that for 2 seconds. It is now rebooted and ready to use. Put the back plate back on.

I got the battery changed in my Casio E-Databank EDB6101C and now the sound doesn't work. Does anyone know how to turn the sound back on?


When you open the case there are two very small springs that may be lost if you are not carefull.
One of it is used to make electric contact with the piezo speaker in the back plate.
Replace it and the sound wil return.
Good luck.

I think it said in the manual that you had to use metal tweezers to reset the thing. Check the manual again under the changing battery section.
