First of all... nice forum.
I've owned G-Shocks since the 90's. A few died, a few were lost. I've worn one for so long... no other watches are comfortable.
This is the first one I've killed. Months ago I had the battery replaced. Later, much later, noticed the alarm had stopped working.
I found this forum with Google, and the spring seemed to be the most likely culprit.
I opened the case, sure enough no spring. Heres where I may have goofed... out of curiosity I pulled the guts out... there was the spring laying inside.
Put it all back together... no power. Rinse wash repeat, tried different location for spring... it should touch the back cover, right?
All no go's.
My G is dead.
Before I send it off for repair... any suggestions? Did I fry it?
