    need help!!

    i have a few g shocks. need help from any kind soul.

    i. dw9800 wademan - one of the operating buttons is gone. anyone know where to get the replacement button?

    ii. dw8300 - went for a swim n sea water seeping in. maybe because of worn off gaskets or loose caps. the watch could not be operated anymore. so i wonder if i could get a replacement 'engine' for this watch.

    I think it shares the same module as the DW-290 available on ebay for $38 uncertain whether it will fit in the DW-8300 I'm sure someone else will know well worth getting this classic repaired.

    Hi Kueh,

    Well, I might know much about G-Shock's, but I don't know all answers. The button of the Wademan is a difficult one. Maybe the DW-9000 series watches have the same shaped of buttons, but I'm not sure.

    For the DW-8300 I think Kevin gave the right advice. It sharesd the same module of the DW-290 (not a G-Shock model). The module number is 1288. It is used in more Casio models. Maybe it is also still available at your national Casio service, but new modules are pricey.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Malay, and it's suggesting going to a shopping centre in a place called Kuantan next. I don't speak it, but I'm an administrator on a chat server with a Malaysian community.
