    Dw-5600e fails drop test

    DAMN. I just did a little drop test with my 5600 E.....it failed the test....miserably. I stood at the top of my staircase, help the watch by the strap, and released it. It landed directly flush on its face, (just like in the drop test video on the casio website) and when I picked it up I knew something was wrong. No beeping when I hit the buttons, switched to 24hr mode, scrambled the year and everything else. I played around with it for a minute trying to get it back in order and the screen went dead. BOO!!! So much for the 10 meter drop resist.

    WOW! That's NOT good. I wonder WHY your watch failed?

    Probably an anomaly. Anything is possible really. My g shocks are the only watches I have that I would remotely risk doing that to and expect them to survive. Still though that's too bad about the failure.

    If it's a brand new watch I would send it back for an exchange for another brand new DW5600E.

    No it's not new but it was my favorite watch. Those tough test videos on the Casio site got me all excited and I figured I should let the little fella have some fun. So....I dropped him. And now.....I've lost him. I am about to perform an autopsy to see if I can tell what happened. I will let you know the results. If you have a 5600E of your own...now would be a good time to get him out and tell him how much you love him.

    I wonder what would happen if you removed the battery, put it back in, and then did an AC reset. Give that a shot before completely disassembling/junking the watch.
