Casio wave ceptor repair


Recommended Posts

Evening all,

Recently I've replaced the battery in said watch, went out all good, next day customer came back and the battery was dead, so I put another new battery in and now the LCD display is FUBAR.

Also I think said customer is trying to have me over as one of the fixing screws are now threaded and won't screw in, but I know this to be fine when it went out.

My question is could someone recommend somewhere to send this for repair, as the quotes he's given me are I believe somewhat inflated,

Many thanks in advance and any help/ contacts would be greatly appreiciated

I thought the wave cepter range where solar powered? They don't have batteries if that's the case, but capacitors.......... If you did put a battery in that's why it failed. Another reason for quick battery failure on a radio Wave watch is if you didn't A/C reset it? Although again. It's been a while since I did one of these so can't remember if it has an A/C terminal.

I think it's about half and half between solar and more "traditional" battery on wave range. Definitely follow lees advise on the a/c though. Unfortunately if it is broken, the only place that can repair it ( if you can't replace it.) Is casio. Not the best situation to find yourself with Xmas coming up. Good luck.

Thanks for all the replys,

Yes it did have a battery and I did do the ac reset, I just put it down to a duff battery, as I'm sure you all have the odd one, but on removing the back that's when I realised he'd been in it as one of the screws just fell out.

 

Not to worry, I'll let him get it repaired and see what It comes back as,

 

Really appreiciate your time and replys,

Craig
