Customer Question

i have replaced the battery on my eh-23ga watched & it is dead no led etc i checked voltage to make sure battery is good & have 3.45 volts & have the plus side up
JA: I throw away my watch whenever it stops moving. Some people love fixing timepieces. Differences like that make the world go round I guess - maybe that's clockwork too. Please tell me everything you can so the Clock Technician can help you best.
Customer: I already did above!
JA: Sorry about that. I must have missed it. Could you tell me again?
Customer: I put in a new battery that I checked to make sure was good - I am positive I have put the battery in correctly - My watch is a EH-23-GA model - what else can be wrong?
JA: Is there anything else the Clock Technician should be aware of?
Customer: Its an accurate Radio Controlled Time and Data watch water resistant up to 100 feet - what else would he need to know?
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Clock Technician about your situation and then connect you two.

Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

That's a shame. It's something that might be corrected, though.

1. a watch-size battery is sometimes defective. ?Try another battery?

2. did any part fall out when you took out the old battery? some watches regrettably do have a little jigger of metal inside with the battery, that can fall out, rendering the watch inoperative when it is not put back in correctly. I had a case like that once.

3. if the watch is not new, it may be reluctant to re-start after stopping. (Not that a watch with an LED display is likely to have this problem.) Leave it on a shelf for a few days, take it and give it a tap, it might possibly come to life again.

After which, it will have to be taken to a watchmaker's shop to be opened, examined, cleaned perhaps, and hopefully restored to operating condition.

Note: if the battery you replaced the old battery with was not an exact replacement, that could be a problem too.
