    Isuues with DW5600 side light

    Well, I've had this watch in my possesion since 1988. I probally changed the battery 10years ago. The watch works like a charm, but the only issue I have, is the side light. It doesn't have enough power to illuminate the face of the watch in the dark. I think it allways had this issue.

    Anyone here have the same issue with the side light?

    I had an old non- G-shock Casio many years ago that had a mini bulb. It stopped lighting up but the digits were strong on the display so I knew it wasn't the battery. Chances are, your problem is just the battery so maybe a new battery change will do it. If it is the bulb, I don't know that Casio can replace it but you could always source a module and replace the whole thing perhaps.

    the mini bulb is weak regardless of battery level when compared to EL
    but it was the best thing that happens to wrist watch at that time
    i happened not to mind the mini bulb on the vintage ones, they are weak and i need a good stare to read the time, but then it also reminds me that i am wearing a vintage G-Shock

    if you want something better for viewing, you can always move up to G-Shock with EL.
