    Help!!! My G Shock Rangeman had shut down and its blank

    Guys. I need Help! My G shock rangeman shut down and there is nothing displayed at all. I tried to press the buttons and nothing came on. I last wore it in December 2015 for a 5 day holiday to Indonesia. It showed power as medium. What should I do?

    It needs sunshine for a few days. Not indirect sunshine, direct sunshine to charge the battery from zero to high.

    This is the 1st report of a 9400 goin to sleep at work I've
    ever read of.
    As recommended, give him some "Ole Sol" and he'll be
    back to work. Do you wear this watch under a cuff?

    Never go on holiday with a solar G-shock at medium, it would take several days to fully charge the watch if the weather is bad.

    The problem with the 'Power Reading Meter' is that it is not a fine instrument ... in that your 'M' reading could be borderline & just as easily

    be at the high end of the 'L' power level. As previously mentioned, CHARGE IT.

    AND, when next you store it, make sure it's fully charged before you put it away.

    Thanks for the advice guys!

    I shone a torchlight at it and the words CHG appears. I think that it ran out of battery and it is charging now. I will move it to a bright area now. I seldom wear my G Shock, and I only wear it if I go for adventurous holidays or when I go do outdoor activities.

    Since the battery is almost completely discharged, it's going to take quite a while to bring it back to "fully charged." From the other charts on page 2 of the manual at: http://support.casio.com/storage/en/...009/qw3410.pdf

    Casio estimates that it's going to take 18 hours of DIRECT (outdoor) sunlight just to get to "H" and another 5 hours to become fully charged. (If you take it out of the sun as soon as it shows "H" on the display, it may drop to "M" the next time you use the watch's illumination.)

    Those same estimates show that it's going to take 108 hours of "sunlight through a window" or 215 hours of "cloudy daylight through a window" to become fully charged, but the good news is that once it's fully charged it doesn't take a lot of light to keep it that way.

    Now I am thinking that the better G Shock will be those that uses a battery.
