I have just received my new Casio MTG-930DU-8VER G-Shock Watch. This the second one I've owned as I lost my previous one while working on my car last year, I missed i so much I brought it again.
I have a few issues with the new one and hopefully somebody can tell me whether I have brought a dud or do I need to be patient.
The watch came early this morning, on opening the box and taking the watch out the screen was completely dead. After a hour on the window seal in dull light the watch finally came to life but many of the functions do not work and the watch will not move off time keeping mode although I have been able to manually set the watch up the light will not work and I can not get it to do a manual receive.
It is obvious that the battery was completely flat on arrival and needed to be charged up (which it has been doing in dull light for around 4 /5 hours now) but surly the functions should still work.
Could someone please tell me if this is normal for this type of watch until the battery has more charge or whether it is fault and I need to seek a replacement. I never had this trouble with my last watch. It worked straight out the box and when the battery got low I would just place it by the window and within a couple of hours it was back on wrist with no issues.
