    Pathfinder PAG40 battery replacement

    Hello forum

    Brand new member here. I have a Pathfinder PAG40 that the batteries are finally going in (almost 4 years!). Not willing to spend the $70 Casio service wants to change the batteries. I have the back off and thanks to the how to I can remove and replace the batteries but how do I reset the ac with 4 batteries. I do not see one AC point to touch to the back of the batteries. Is it the one marked circle point on the silver plate or is it the little gold dots? Don't really want to experiment. Also does anyone have a name brand for the USA of a silicone for the gasket? Thanks for any and all help

    Bob

    That's strange how they labled it. I would suspect is the gold dot on the right of the picture.

    Greetings Schwinnbob.
    I used this site which one of our moderators, Sjors, pointed me to:
    http://watch-coo.com/battery/casio/casio.html

    This owner changes the battery on his Protreks too.

    http://watch-coo.com/battery/casio/prt700-2334.html
    http://watch-coo.com/battery/casio/prt40-1471.html

    For all these watches it looks like the gold dot. Is is possble for more close up pictures of the watch opened? The pic you posted is good, but there is something in the top left hand corner I am curios about.

    I hope this site helped.

    P.S Did you used to have a Schwinn bicycle?

    Hi Guys!

    Thanks for the replys. I have replaced the picture on my initial post with hopefully a better one. With this better picture if anyone has more info it would be greatly appreciated. The watch changing site was great but could not find any that had 4 batteries like mine. Once the AC point is identified it should be a piece of cake.

    Yes, did use to collect Schwinn bikes and of course had one has a kid. As a matter of fact, still have the same bike from my childhood - 1968 Rams Horn Fastback. Had to give up the collecting though as bikes take up a huge amount of room. Have moved on to Aurora Postage Stamp N Scale Trains.

    Thanks!
    Bob

    Re: Pathfinder PAG40 battery replacement

    Hi Bob,

    I have literally today picked up a PRG-40 in the post that needs 4 new batteries :\

    As soon as I've got some of the right size I will get the case open and see what's going on in there, should be just a few days :)

    In the mean time if you find out yourself do let me know in this thread,

    Cheers, Alex

    Hi Guys:

    After looking at it more closely, I decided to plunge in. On the back in the metal the arrow is pointing towards the group of 4 gold buttons and on the back in the plastic between the metal and buttons has the AC molded in by the bigger button. I took that to mean the bigger button is the AC. Just finished changing the batteries and touching that button to the back of all 4 batteries with tweezers and it is all good. Reset and everything looks good.

    Thanks again for all the input! Now I need to get a G-shock since reading all these posts has me wanting one.

    Ah, I think I see what you mean.

    The larger of the four gold contacts together with the other end of the tweezers on one of the batteries seems to reset it for me.

    Managed to pick up 20 AG7 cells on ebay for 2.49 inc. del right now so in theory I have enough cells for 5 battery changes for what would cost me a new watch twice over if Casio serviced it!

    I can't get over this watch - 6 volts and huge, what a beast it is.

    Bob does your bezel rotate and in which direction? Mine doesn't, that's the next thing I have to investigate :)

    Hi Alex:

    I wasn't sure if I needed to touch all 4 batteries and didn't check after doing one but I would tend to agree that you only need to touch one. My bezel only turns counter clockwise. I also got my batteries on ebay 10 for $6 shipped and now we know how to do it so it is a great thing.

    Re: Pathfinder PAG40 battery replacement

    Hi Schwinnbob etc.

    I appreciate you or anyone can share exact step to contact AC with battery (+) using tweezers after battery replacement. I has been trying to contact AC with battery (+) using tweezers but don't have good news so far. I purchased 5 renata 1.5 V battery from ebay. I have the same watch (Casio Pathfinder 2271 PAG-40) as the picture posted above.

    Thanks for help in advance.
    Robert
