Just picked up a new 'old stock' MTG-1200-1AJF. It's a very nice watch but it doesn't work currently! The seller said it was sitting in a drawer for a few years and was never worn.
The warranty card says it was purchased in 2015 so i'm guessing the CTL920F Rechargeable battery went bad from sitting.
Read the 5040JA Manual and found it was on level 3 (Dead) with all hands stopped at 12 o'clock. Let the watch sit in the sun to charge for a few hours but had no luck. Tried every button in the sun as if it were in sleep mode but nothing. Today I gave Casio NJ a call and they want me to send it in for service - It's out of warranty so not sure how much they would charge to repair.
Has anyone had issues with their MTG-1200-1AJF Not charging or bad solar battery from sitting in darkness for years? I got the watch for $100 after a refund so i believe a repair is worth it since these are $280-$400 right now.
