    Keep it in the direct sunlight a while longer, it may take 8 hours to get it up again. It's been sleeping a long time, try giving it some coffee also.

    Where there are signs of life, there is hope. Give it a good couple of days of direct sunlight - I have the feeling that some sunshine will bring it right back.

    As TikTox said, keep charging it -- these solar watches take a lot more time to charge than most people think!

    Charging in direct sunlight can take a couple of days to get from "almost dead" to "full," and because glass blocks a lot of that solar energy, charging through a window seems to take (on average) five times longer. The G-2310 is one of Casio's earliest solar models, and they didn't even put "charging charts" in the manuals then: G2310-1V - G-Shock - G-Shock, Mens, Tough, Water Resistant, Analog, Digital, Watches | CASIO America, Inc.

    Here's the chart from another earlier model, the MTG-900, to give you an idea how long yours might take to fully charge:

    buttons ain't operate because the battery is still low, so the g is still in recovery mode, will work when it has enough juice -

    The ML2016 can take forever to recharge. During this season and depending where you live, it can take several weeks.

    +1 on what Cal said. That one, from what I have read, is slow to recharge.
