    Old Casio. ID and repair suggestions

    A friend is trying to get his Casio repaired.

    What is this one?

    Any idea who could repair it?



    Any thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?

    The model number appears on the back of most Casio watches. In this case, your friend's watch appears to be a AMW-320H. What's wrong with the watch? If it's just dead, a new battery might sort it out. Casio's movements tend to be pretty stout, long lasting pieces and a new battery is often enough to get them running again.

    As jrp316 said, it really depends on what's wrong with it. If it "only" needs a new battery, springbars and a new strap, most watch repair shops can handle that -- or a lot of "do-it-yourself" types can do it with the information in the Articles and Tutorials section of this forum! (A new band, battery, and one springbar will cost about $14 and $5 in shipping: Casio AMW320D-1BV Parts and Accessories

    If the crystal is cracked or scratched, it can still be repaired, but if your friend isn't a do it yourself-er, the total repair costs might be higher than just buying a new version of the same model.

    Both pushers are on the same side, so like already said above, it's a current model of AMW320. Here's a video tutorial on battery change of the exact same watch. Pretty straight forward and no harm for a cheap watch like this, I say just do it yourself. It's 22mm for lug width, which you can find plenty of generic replacement bands and spring bars.

    Unfortunately, many Casios don't magically spring back to life just because a new battery is installed.

    Who put the battery in, and did they perform an "AC reset?" Ignore the title of this link; it applies to most Casio models and not just G-Shocks: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f43/how...ock-19704.html

    (A few hundred perfectly good watches probably go into the trash every year because Casio doesn't cover this in the owner's manual. They mention it in a somewhat cryptic sticker on the back of the battery latch inside the watch, but a lot of people don't "get it" or don't bother.)

    And again, I'm asking "when they put the new battery in, did they do an AC reset while the back of the watch was off?"

    JUST putting in a new battery does not ensure that the watch will start working again -- sometimes it needs the AC reset procedure to bring the watch back to life. (The procedure itself is stupidly simple: take a short piece of wire or a paper clip and connect the newly installed battery to an electrical contact inside the watch for a second or two, then remove the wire. That quick "jump" resets the module and often gets the watch running again.)

    It's analogous to shocking a newly transplanted human heart to get it started. Just because the doctors put a new heart INTO the person's chest, that doesn't mean that it starts back up on its own.

    "I sent it to Casio they changed the battery and then told me it was no longer waterproof because they didn't have the o rings for that watch anymore but they also put in the note that they don't understand why it won't run and they mailed it back to me"
