    Protrek PRG60

    Hi all,

    I have a protrek PRG60, its 5 years old.
    I have had the battery replaced once when its one years old.
    Now I am having problem with it again.
    The issue with it is that whenever I press the illumination button, all the display goes out and the SAVE light starts blinking
    It will come back to life after a while and the battery indicator is always on H
    I wonder what the problem is.

    I'm located in Vancouver BC Canada, if its a battery related issue, does anyone know where should I send my watch to? Thanks

    Dennis

    My first guess would be the battery has lost its ability to hold enough charge or voltage to perform higher powered operations. The fact that you had a failed battery early on makes me also suspect the circuit might not be handling the battery charging properly.

    My guess is the dreaded CTL1616 battery & faulty module combo.


    According to my dealer friend, the earlier PRGs posted lots problem and many of those sold by him had to be replaced.However, models above PRG-70 or PRG-80 do not seems to have this problem anymore.This is based on my friend's experience.

    Cheers,

    I've had some work done here, and they are top notch:

    But for a battery change it's pretty straight forward, so you might want to just do it yourself.
    But if you arent confortable with doing the work, take it to them.

    Unfortunately I believe we can count you with two dead CTL1616 in this thread:

    thanks for the input guys
    I dont want to replace the battery by myself since I think they will replace the seal when they replace the battery too ?
    I guess I'll give the dealer a call
