    HELP NEEDED! SPRING IN DW6600

    Hi all. I'm finishing restoration of my father's beloved DW6600 and have hit a snag. After replacing the bezel, installing a new strap, polishing the back case, and polishing some scratches out of the face, I turned my attention to the the interior/replacing the battery. Prior to reading over the some of the excellent walkthroughs here on the site I went so far as to dissassemble the battery portion from the board portion by accident, not realizing the battery simply clipped in. During this I dislodged a silver spring. It is about twice the length of the other copper colored alarm spring? I have looked through the tutorials and have seen an M model that had a similar spring, but the location is clearly different. Can someone point me to a photo of where this thing goes so I can get it back in place? Thanks so much for the help!

    It seems that the DW-6600 doesn't have a piezo speaker glued to the back plate but it's on the module (black piece with the white dot).

    The piezo speaker is that H14S glued on the back plate, that makes contact with the spring next to the battery.

    Hmm, I didn't see photo with the H14S when I read this thread, maybe David added it later ?

    Anyway, can someone tell what is the black piece on the module if it's not the speaker ? I've seen this kind of speaker in some electronic stuffs.

    LUW is right. And AFAIK there is only one spring inside the 6600.

    Maybe David can make a test to see if it beeps without the caseback ?

    I've seen this small "black box" in a couple of vintage G-shock, not sure what is was for.

    Re: HELP NEEDED! SPRING IN DW6600

    If i remember correctly it´s a small capacitor. A part like that is omnipresent in nearly all G-Shock Modules i know. I think i remember somebody mentioning it was there to store the energy for the EL film.
    and no. a DW-6600 will not beep without the Caseback.

    No, a capacitor looks different, it looks more like a tiny speaker to me, maybe it's used for alarm or some chimes that the piezo speaker can't do ?
