    GWG-1000-1A9 “CHARGE” Issue

    I own both the 1A9 and RD-4A, GWG-1000. Both are stored adjacent to a window and are provided plenty of light. Today I noticed the 1A9 had the hour and minute hands at 12 and in the display “CHARGE” was blinking. The RD-4A was fine. I placed the watch in open sunlight and after a couple hours it was proving the time and date but were incorrect.

    My question is does this mean the battery is loosing its ability to hold a charge? I assume with the proper charge, the time and date will be corrected tonight as the watch spent about 8 hours in sunlight today.

    Thanks in advance for and information.

    If you cycle thru the modes until you come back to the time it should say the battery level L/M/H...if you have L there could be a possibility that you need to change the battery since it may not be holding a charge...

    According to your description, that would be my conclusion as well. Have you already tried leaving it on the sun for extended periods of time? Some people are reporting that they have had success with that.

    I know if it was me, I would not think about it much and just send it to Casio and have a new battery installed.

    It seems easy enough and not too expensive plus even if I could revive it, how long would such revival last and given that the replacement is easy and inexpensive, why take chances.

    Before you condemn the battery put the watch outside if you can rather than on a windowsill as I find that even though winter’s grip has past window glass seems to suck a lot of goodness out of sunlight at this time of year.

    I agree... I picked up a watch in the Caribbean and it has had a FULL charge ever since...now the other watches I have bought and sun bathed take multiple sessions outside in direct light (despite what the manual tells you)..to charge to FULL and stay FULL.

    I had the watch in the sun for a couple of days. It is now running fine and syncing up as usual. I would assume the battery might be at issue, although both watches continue to show M in the battery charge indicator. Not an issue to send it in for a new battery.

    Thanks for the input.
