Casio battery change
« on: June 05, 2017, 11:52:06 AM »
I suppose,on paper,my Casio MRW-200H doesn't owe me much. After all,I got it in a trade for a Lansky Turnbox,but when it's original battery died,it would have costed me more to get the battery changed than to buy a new one!

Thinking I'd nothing to loose,I took it apart,and ordered a new battery off Amazon. For a couple of quid,I replaced the battery myself successfully.

A few weeks ago,after three or four years use,the battery died again. So for your delight,here's what the inside of the Casio looks like....

There is no beginning,or ending,and for this we are thankful,cos now is hard enough to understand!

I change them myself also.  One thing to note that on some timex and casio's, it is necessary to short out the plus side of the battery with a contact (usually labelled AC) once the battery is changed.  Sometimes it works ok without being shorted but not always.  I use a pin on the contact and tweezers from a victorinox knife to complete the short and it works well.  There is usually a label on the battery holder with an arrow towards the AC contact.

Most dead watches I find work well once again once a new battery is installed.  It seems that most people won't change them or get them changed once a watch dies.

I just bough a Casio as a work watch earlier this week. I'm going to be working construction and didn't want to beat up my Wenger, and Kmart had a good deal for it. So for $18, I am now a Casio owner. It seems well made enough. Looking forward to putting it through it's paces
