    2 month old G Shock GW 7900B Is Locked Up: Buttons Won't Work

    The watch will tell time, but the buttons won't do anything...nor will the light button.

    Caseback has never been off.

    Is there a master reset or trick to fix it? The manual has nothing really.

    has the bezel been off? The reason i ask is maybe one of the buttons are getting stuck down. I've seen this asked here before and the only time I could replicate the issue with my GW7900 was when holding a button down.

    The buttons go back in the bezel in a specific way and it is easy for one to be held down by the bezel.

    there is a A/C reset that you can do, but you have to take the caseback off for it.

    find the A/C contact and short with the +ve side of the battery. The watch will reset.

    you can try that first and see if its going to fix your problem

    As has been mentioned, this issue has happened before on this model. Can't find the thread though.

    The main point is that your watch is only 2 months old - you shouldn't need to fart about with it at all by taking the back off and trying an AC reset. Indeed, that would invalidate the warranty. Take it back to where you bought it & get a new one. By the way, don't know where you are based, but in the UK, consumer legislation makes it the retailers problem, don't let them fob you off with a 'we have to send it back to Casio' - they don't!
    Never argue with an idiot - they'll only bring you down to their level and win from experience...

    I've seen this same problem, with the GW7900B-1.. Try charging it if it's on Low

    Speaking of, what does the battery indicator show? H M L? If on L a lot of features get locked out.

    Don't some models have a reset mode by holding down 3 or 4 of the buttons for a few seconds - presumably slightly different to the a/c reset, but I seem to remember seeing it mentioned here somewhere.
