    Need Info on DW-5700 G-shock

    New Member, referred from another board when I had a question about My old G-shock.

    Thanks in advance.

    I've got an old DW-5700 that has had several batteries replaced, yet never had the seals replaced. I'm in no condition to dive with it, and the shop wants $40 just to open the back. I've already bought a pin vise to remove the back, and figured it out after a strugle.

    The watch still works, but the buttons are getting harder to push.

    Is it worth getting watch fixed, or should I buy a new G-shock?

    Also, I've got a Casio ATC-1200 which hasn't worked in several years. Took it to Wally World to have battery replaced, and they put the case on backwards, which resulted in water inside the case. They sent it off to TimeMasters who "fixed" it - yet 30 days later it was dead again. Wally World claimed the extent of their liablity was to send it to TimeMasters, who claimed it was working when it left their shop (it was) but the battery is supposed to last years.

    It's been sitting in my desk drawer for several years since replacing the battery didn't solve the problem.

    Any suggestions?

    if you have take the movement out and put it back in, make sure the button's metal flap is not stuck, you can get a small screw driver and press on the metal flap, make sure that the movement sits right as well

    Hi Fleacab,

    Welcome to our little G-Shock Forum,

    It sounds indeed like the metal pins are under/over (depends on what side you look) the pins of the buttons. It is very easy to resolve this problem. Take a small screwdriver when you have opened the case, and carefully force the metal pins to slip under the buttons, where they belong. If you have a real vintage DW-5700 model, it's best to let your watch serviced at a Casio service centre.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Sjors:

    I need info on the other watch! It's a G-shock Triple Sensor that hasn't worked in several years. I paid over $100 for it at Costco, and I haven't worn it since the 2nd time the battery went out. TimeMasters refuses to fix it under warranty since the original damage was caused by Wal-Mart's negligence. Wal-mart refuses to replace the watch since they didn't sell it to me.

    Basically I'm SOL unless someone can think up another alternative.

    Thanks,

    Fleataxi
