    Secret functions of a G Shock?

    Are there any functions you can access on your G Shock that aren't in the instructions? You know, pressing a random sequence of buttons, or a combination of buttons to give a test screen, or something else unexpected or exciting?

    Yes, like the fix for my Watch that the bungler on the phone at Casio in Dover NJ service didn't know.
    No doubt there are some pearls out there.

    Re: Secret functions of a G Shock?

    Here are the test modes I've identified so far on my Casios.

    G-Shock Test Modes

    Note: Tested on G-Shock GW-2310-1 and GW-M850-1

    Press and hold the following simultaneously:

    Top Left, Top Right & Bottom Left - Tilt sensor test (shows TLT)
    Time display area shows blank when not tilted, 8888 when tilted
    Press Bottom Right to escape

    Top Left, Top Right & Bottom Right- Solar cell test (shows SLR)
    Time display area shows blank when exposed to light, 8888 when there is insufficient light
    Press Bottom Right to escape

    Bottom Left, Bottom Right & Top Left - Display test (and module version)
    Press Bottom Right to scroll through various screens and escape

    Bottom Left, Bottom Right & Top Right - Time sync hardware test
    Shows radio-controlled transmitter countries/frequencies, etc.
    Press Bottom Right to scroll through various screens
    Press Bottom Left to escape


    Pathfinder/Protrek Test Modes


    Note: Tested on Pathfinder PAW-2000-1

    Press and hold the following in sequence:

    ADJUST+MODE+ALTI - Display test mode
    Press ALTI to scroll through various screens and escape

    ADJUST+MODE+COMP - Tilt sensor test mode (shows TLT)

    Display Test
    To enter test modes, press and hold Upper Left, Lower Left and Lower Right until HOD is displayed.
    Press Upper Right to show the first display pattern.
    Press Lower Right to show the remaining display patterns (one of which shows all display elements in use simultaneously), the module number, some unfamiliar code (004) and exit.
