Roger the Dodger

Suspense over and a huge thanks to Davey P.

Recommended Posts

Mate, you are more than welcome, I'm so glad it works perfectly (although as it's a Casio I'm not at all surprised)  :thumbsup: 

It's always great to give something back on here, and you've made a cracking job of bringing it back to life, well done that man :notworthy:

Wear it in health me old mucker  :rltrlt:

Nice one, Davey, and thanks for showing us those great pics of what is a rather nice Casio number, Roger. I just wondered, Rog @Roger the Dodger, could you just tell me how you flipped up the end of the clip in order to remove the battery in the watch. I have had problems with trying to prise up the end of the thin metal band that holds in the battery on so many digital watches, I would appreciate a heads-up on the knack of doing this.:)

I have had problems with trying to prise up the end of the thin metal band that holds in the battery on so many digital watches, I would appreciate a heads-up on the knack of doing this.:)

There are all sorts of different battery retainers, Honour, some more fiddly than others. With the simple screwed down ones, I hold the clip down with a piece of pegwood or similar while I undo the screw. This stops the clip springing up when the screw comes loose and firing it across the room. Some don't need the screw removed completely...you just loosen it slightly, then swing the clip to one side. Others don't even have a screw...just a spring clip holding the cell in place. With these, it's just a matter of carefully manoeuvering the cell out with your forceps and sliding a new one in under the clip.

The type that Davey's watch had (and this type seems prevalent with the CR xxxx lithium coin cells) has a metal loop that passes under a retaining nib/hook to hold it in place. To remove, apply a gentle pressure on the top of the cell to take the tension off the loop, and with a small screwdriver (or similar) unhook the loop from under the nib to release. Remove the old cell and replace with a new one, then apply gentle pressure on the clip and cell and the loop should click back under the nib/hook. If it doesn't, you might need to help it back into place with a screwdriver. Hope this helps.

In this pic, you can see the square loop on the right and the brownish coloured nib it hooks under in the recess beneath it.

This short video also shows how to release one of these cages, though I would still apply a gentle downwards pressure on the cage and cell when hooking and unhooking the loop, as it makes it easier to do.

To be honest, I think I'd rather have the Casio back than the Rolex anyway  :laughing2dw:

Not really my cup of tea that Casio, on paper, but I really like it and its come up a treat looking as new.

@Nigelp why are those monks feet so large?

When I was in the bank it was in a change function, I never liked going out to see customers as they complained too much about the changes we were bringing in or if there were teething problems. Ingrates, all of em. Now't more satisfying than closing branches and rolling out digital services to pensioners :whistle::shothead:

Due to the fact this is not in the Free Talk forum, I won't answer that.
