I recently purchased a vintage DW5900 for my collection. When I received it I noticed that I could not adjust the time by depressing the adjust button. I figured something was not making contact in the case. So, I opened up the case to see if I could make an adjustment. Sure enough the contactor was out of alignment so I moved it into the correct position. However during this operation, what looks like s tiny spring fell out of the case. The problem is that I did not see where it came from. In addition the alarm and signal sounds are not working. Could these two issues be related? These G-Shocks are pretty tough and (although possible) I think it is unlikely that this feature is defective. I’ve replaced batteries before (in my GW300A-1V) and was careful to note where the springs came from. However, this one was so small I did not notice it until I was done make the adjustments.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
