You cannot change the light. It is an electro-luminescence layer behind the display. It is something like a large LED. They are designed to not be very bright to save battery life. I have a number of Casio watches. They are all not very bright. Also the non silver background type watches tend to be much darker than the silver background with black symbols.

You can change the backlight on a casio wristwatch by holding the Light button, but only if it has an LED light in the side of the screen such as yours does. There is Light Blue, Red, Pink, Blue, Green LEDs in the side of the screen and you can change between them. There is also an option that flashes between all the LEDs when you press the button.

My casio protrek 2500t watch is in power saving mode but even after keeping in dark for hours between 10pm and 6 am the display does not go off.Please help.


I own the same PRW-2500-1A (all black).Check if under the hours reading, PS appears.If yes,power saving function is activated.
Normally, Power Saving Function is enabled automatically (if activated) if the watch stays in complete dark for sometime.If after a couple of hours in the dark the watch comes suddenly under bright light,the display goes on immediately.Hour interval (10pm-6am) has nothing to do with Power Saver.
Try the following:
a)Deactivate and reactivate (or vice versa) the PS.
b)Leave the watch in the dark for a couple of hours .Then,still in the dark,try,using a very low power light (just that you can,barely read) to check if display is blank.If not you may have a problem with the light sensor found at the bottom of the display.Will be a very rare case but you have to take the watch to a CASIO authorized service.

How do brighten the dial so I can see the time in the dark. The watch was in direct sunlight 3 days & I still cannot see thedial in the dark!


At one time luminescent dials were made with Radium Luminous paint with a half-life of 1600 years so the "glow" didn't go away soon. And getting enough of the material to cause it to glow sufficiently was dangerous to the wearer. Since then Tritium mixed with zinc sulfide was substituted. Please see: http://wornandwound.com/2013/08/23/seeing-in-the-dark-luminescence-in-watches/

Later, non-radioactive materials were used. Unfortunately, all these materials decay and are less efficient. If you have a small flashlight you can hold it to the face of the watch and it will then get brighter...for a while. But, soon it will fade again. Holding the watch under a light for a long time won't help. The reason is that the material can't hold a "charge" and the excited materials have lost much of their ability to luminesce.

Can't see the time in the dark


The dials will need to be exposed to light in order for them to be visible at night.

Armitron All-Sport Watch Instructions By Brian Walker eHow Contributor 9 Found This Helpful The Armitron All-Sport is a unisex style of watch made by Armitron that features a digital readout and four buttons around the outer dial for adjusting various aspects of the watch. It can set alarms, keeps the time as well as the date, and has a built-in backlight. Accessing and adjusting these various settings is a fairly simple process.

Setting Date, Time and Alarm
  • To enter the date and time setting mode, press and hold the "mode" button, located on the top-left of the watch. Continue holding this button until the display begins to flash. This first display is the alarm setting, should you choose to set an alarm to go off. If you'd like to set the alarm, use the "alarm" button on the bottom-right of the watch to advance the hours to the desired one. Then press the mode button again; this will cycle through the minutes and seconds of the alarm to allow you to set those as well. Once you have set the alarm, you can press the "date" button at the top-right of the watch to proceed to the regular time setting. These numbers, which will now be flashing, also are adjusted by pressing the alarm button to change them. Pressing the date button again will now cycle through the hours, minutes, seconds and the date. As you continue to press the date button, the All-Sport will continuously cycle through these options; don't worry if you forget to set one, you can simply press the date button a few times until you get back to the setting you need to change. Once the alarm, time and date have all been set, you can press the mode button one more time to exit to the normal watch mode that will display the date and time.
Using Chime and Alarm
  • The Armitron All-Sport features both an alarm and an hourly chime. The alarm function will cause the watch to continuously beep at the selected time until you turn it off by pressing a button. The chime will cause the watch to beep once every hour. You can turn both these features on and off by pressing and holding the alarm button and while holding it pressing the date button. The first time you do this, the chime will turn on and a small house symbol will be displayed on the watch face. Performing this button-pressing sequence again will turn on the alarm, which in turn displays a small clock icon on the watch face. Each successive pressing of this button sequence will alternate between the chime and the alarm, turning them either on or off.
Backlight
  • The All-Sport also features a built-in backlight to help you view the watch in dark conditions. This light can be activated by pressing the "light" button on the bottom-left of the watch. Pressing this button is the only way to activate the light, and doing so will only cause the watch to illuminate for a few seconds at a time.

I left my watch in the dark for a along period of time. The indicator shows low / I have been placing my watch on direct ligth so can charge for the last 4 days . Do i need to replace the battery CTL1616


If you left your watch in direct sunlight, there should be just 6-8 hours enough to recharge it. If there was no direct sunlight, it may take up to a week to revoke your watch. This corresponds only to watches powered by light. The energy cell in those watches is called capacitor, not battery. If you are not sure what type of cell your watch has, leave it for a few days more in bright lightened place and then see if it works. If it does not - replace the capacitor (or battery if your watch isn't powered by light). Rate me, plz.

Need bulb to illuminate face


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.
