    Dead DW9000?! New guts?

    My beloved DW 9000 in olive is officially dead. I've neglected the poor thing and not replaced it's battery for years. Pulled it out of a drawer and sadly, the module has expired. Can I pop in the guts from another model such as the DW 9052? Anyone ever try it? Did try a couple of battery replacement with no results.

    Sorry. No pix

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    What do you mean about expired mate, have you done a reset after new battery fitted?

    What do you mean died? Did you replace the battery and do a AC reset?

    Yes the 9052 module is the same as the 9000 module and it will swap over. The trouble is that the cost of the replacement module(ether by buying a used and beat up 9052 or a new one) costs about the same as buying a NOS 9000 or simply buying a new 9052 to wear.

    Reset? I thought I've tried everything short of standing on my head waiting for the stars to align. What does a reset involve. Sorry for the silly question and thank you for the response already.

    Will a link to a thread with a LOT of pix help?

    Not the same module, but the concept of the AC reset -- find the correct contact and briefly connect it to the battery to reset the watch -- works across all Casio models.

    Thanks folks. Gave it a solid go with 2 new batteries and the end realy is one dead watch. Mind you, I had to use a paper clip.

    Paper clip, tweezers, anything metal works as long as you're making a solid electrical connection between "the spot" and "the battery."

    The problem I had yesterday was with finding WHICH contact to short on my SPF-40 -- there was one contact in a small recess nearest the "AC" stamped into the metal, and that didn't seem to do anything in several tries. There were also two contacts in a nearby oval recess, and a total of FOUR contacts in a small square recess in the vicinity, and I was hoping I wasn't going to short the wrong contact -- but one of the four in that square did the trick and the module read "12:00.00."

    Since the AC reset points aren't always clearly labelled, I'd keep poking around in there with the paperclip and trying anything that looked like it MIGHT be the AC reset, but maybe you've already tried that. A module shouldn't just "die" unless it's been abused or unless the old battery leaked all over the place.

    AC is marked as the top R small copper circle above the battery. Tried everything. Nada. Looks like I have to accept it may be a goner. Damn.
    Thanks everyone. Really do appreciate all the help.
