    Casio ToughSolar

    I have had a casio ToughSolar for 8 monhts now I only wear it once and a while. Last night around 7:30 EST the digital area of the box was blank. It should not have gone into saver mode because it was getting plenty of light. and batter charge says HI.

    So I reset the Digital array to the Location time Date and when I pressed to enter it the watch reset to 4 hours and thirty minutes behind, I double checked and it was set for NYC and daylight savings was on. times was correct, date correct but is still remained 4 and 30 minutes behind. Now I cant get ti to correct.

    Anyone ever ran into this problem?

    Is this an ana-digi watch, and you're saying the hands are 4:30 behind the digital display? If this is the case, you may have to adjust the home position of the hands.

    What model is your watch?

    I have a couple AQS800 models with the same module. Did you try the Adjusting Home Positions procedure on page E-42 of the manual?

    I am not sure how it happened but we did have a system of thunderstorms go through an about the time I noticed the analog screen went blank we had a lightening strike that killed the power and out automatic generator kicked in.

    Has anyone ever heard of Lightening causing a watch to lose its analog screen and cause the Home position to go haywire?

    It's probably possible -- static electricity has (occasionally) been known to cause all-digital G's to reset to 12:00.00 AM, Jan 1 but it's not a very common occurrence.
