I ran into the same problem w/ my new Timex Expedition. I emailed their help desk and they said that the Expedition models do not have lap memory feature. You need an IronMan watch to get lap recall. Wish I knew that before getting this Expedition watch...

SOURCE: i want to know how
I have a Timex Men's Classic Digital Silver-Tone Expansion Band Watch #T78587. To turn the chime on and off on this watch, I press the Start/Stop button on the top right once. This toggles the chime on and off. If you hear a single beep then you have turned it on. If you hear no beep you have turned it off. You can tell the chime setting by looking at the colon seperator between the hours and minutes. If it is flashing then the chime is on and if it is not flashing then the chime is off. This is not explained in my watch manual nor in any of the manuals I downloaded from Timex.com.

While I was looking for pictures specific to resetting this watch, I came across your post and thought to reply. I recently replaced the batteries on my watch, which I have owned for nearly 7 years. It is an Ironman Triathlon 100 Lap watch. When I replaced the batteries this time, I forgot to reset, in essence reboot the system, by using a metal needle point tweezers to briefly connect the positive side of the battery to the "AC" pad on the small circuit board for at least 2 seconds. I remembered to do this with at all the other times I had replaced the battery and did not have any troubles after it. This time I forgot and now have the same issue you described. I am not sure where the "AC" pad is on the back of the module. But, it should be apparent if I did it correctly in the past.
Give that a try before sending it off to be repair and wasting time, money and trouble.

I had this problem. I simply flipped the metal plate on the back 180 degrees.
I noticed on the inside of the metal plate a pad about the size of the battery, and guessed from the other notes that this must perform some kind of insulating function. Furthermore, the writing on the outside of the metal plate was not oriented "up"... that is if I was holding the watch in front of me like I was reading it, the writing on the back plate was upside down. Both of these clues led me to believe that the plate had been re-installed wrong. Flipping it around fixed (restored) the beep.

This one is quite simple. Just remove the watch back with a watch case knife and flick out the old cell then carefully press in the new one (VERY carefully as the movement is made of plastic). fit the back exactly the way it came off (note the direction of the writing).
