    Dead DW-6600

    The oddest thing just happened to me. My DW-6600 just died. I had just opened the watch, to adjust the trimmer cap ever so slightly. I didn't even remove the module from the case. I removed the caseback and rubber cushion, adjusted the trimmer cap, and reassembled. The whole operation took all of 90 seconds. But when the watch was reassembled, it was totally dead. I tried pulling the battery and hitting the AC contact a few times, but no luck. I guess I'll leave the battery out of the watch for a few hours, and see if it will come back to life later in the day.

    That's a total bummer. Doesn't it sound like some sort of contact issue? I'm certainly no expert. I noticed that for the last little while, you were wearing the 6600 more than usual. I was going to ask if it was growing on you, and if you had developed a bit more of a fondness for it. For some reason, the 6600 has started to appeal to me quite a bit in the last few weeks. Let us know how things turn out. We're confident if anyone can figure it out, you can.

    That's strange cause there is an part that just comes out the battery strap and then put new battery as cr-1620 and then after new battery then touch ac on one screwdriver and other on battery and make sure two small screwdrivers are touching each other and then it should come back on life for the watch.

    The DW-6600 is now back in working order. Very odd. I had to disassemble the module, clean the contacts between the circuit board and LCD, and reassemble. I was rather dubious that this would make any difference, but the watch magically came right back to life.

    that's good and sometimes i'll take an watch totally apart then put it back together after clean it.

    Oops. I'd meant to comment on this. I took on the challenge of improving the accuracy of my DW-6600, just to force myself to wear the watch consistently for a couple weeks. Fiddling with that trimmer cap takes some time to get things sorted out.

    Anyways, The DW-6600 has definitely begun to grow on me. It certainly doesn't have the artistry of the DW-6900, but it is showing itself to be very functional. The size of the characters in the display is quite refreshing, and I'm totally digging the target time function. Very handy once you get used to it.

    It also helps that I've recently purchased a second DW-6600. This means that I can beat on my old one as much as I'd like, without worry of damaging it. It always seems more satisfying to me, for some reason, to wear a watch that I've scratched up a bit. There's no going back once the watch has gotten its dings, so I can feel free to wear it whenever I like.

    Overall, I'm quite pleased with this watch. It's a great every day beater. If I can finally get the timekeeping issues down to acceptable levels, it will see a lot of wrist time in the future.
