Some weeks ago I purchased a GW-6900 on eBay. It was in "used" condition". I opened the package and it looked great. All functions seemed to perform great.
Not that great.
I have discovered that the display is always ON and the watch is always fully operational. Even when the POWER SAVING MODE is active. Even after many hours remaining in total darkness.
I thought that maybe the solar area didn't detect any light, but it does: When I activate the "Full auto EL" function and do the wrist thing in a sunny area, the EL DOES NOT turn on. If I do the wrist thing in a dark area, the EL does turn on.
But my biggest fear is that probably the watch is UNABLE TO CHARGE. It was on MEDIUM when I received it. After several days of exposing it all day to direct sunlight (no window glass, sunny day) is still on MEDIUM.
What's happening? Any advice will be welcome.
I own several 6900's, but I was very excited because it was my first solar-atomic. I purchased it as a self gift for my 40 birthday. I am very disappointed because this is the second solar Casio I own with serious issues. The other one had the "Recovering blues" thing and ended totally dead. :(
Let's hope I have better luck with this one.
Thanx for reading and thanks in advance for helpin,
