    Question EL sort of works - DW-8140 Spinning G Model

    I've had the good fortune of winning two DW-8140's, true wrist tanks!

    The following pics are of the first one (mostly working, showing the Spinning G backlight):




    Both have their issues:
    - the first one works great, but is missing the gasket, and has minor strap issues.
    - the second has a better strap, some bezel issues, and the EL on it doesn't light up, but does the Spinning G routine.

    So, is the lighting part of the second one broken? What would cause this? Could it merely be a bad contact point? I think since the Spinning G part works, it's not a missing spring, but have no idea of the mechanism by which the EL works.

    Thanks!
    Neil

    Could just be the battery needs replacing. EL is normally the first sign.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Agreed! Try a new battery! Lovely models, I'm jealous been trying to win one for ages!

    Watches are frickin evil!
