    Help! Swapped Cases and Broke My M5600

    So... I had a M5600, and a M5600BC. I took the module from the M5600 and put it in the M5600BC case and bracelet.
    All seemed well, but something must be off because the watch no longer charges.

    I probably have a few months before it runs dry, but I'm wondering if anyone knows what I did wrong. I'm not an expert at these things, but any tips or things to look for would be super-helpful. Thanks.

    Sure you didn't put it in the sun or light longer?

    The springs in front are physically attached to the module and should not have fallen off. How have you determined it no longer charges ?? I performed this mod on two of these and the swap went perfect. Is the module in the one with the problem sitting correctly in the case ?? :

    Thanks... yes, the gold spring are still attached the front. Two of them right.

    I left it on the window for two straight days. It dropped from H to M 4 days ago. It's still on M.

    I'll try a few more days. Thanks.

    Nice mod.

    What watches did you use?

    I own a GW5600J-1.

    Might be best to try charging the watch outside - the watch will charge quicker that way.

    Have a G-5600 which also refuses to charge a CTL battery. Hope your watch(es) sort themselves out....
