    Weird sound coming from the Illuminator of my new G-7900-3

    Just got my new G7900-3 in the mail today and everything is fine except that the illuminator makes a buzzing sound when i turn on the light.
    Is that normal for this watch??

    Please let me know

    Mine also does the same thing and it's a G7900-7. So it may be normal. I had been meaning to ask a similar question.

    Normal. I think the manual may even mention it.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Yes, it's perfectly normal. It's the power going to the EL, probably the noise of the ELs capacitor discharging or something like that.

    The only thing you have to worry about is if you see an increase in mosquitoes around you.

    Is it a bug or a feature ?

    If you get more mosquitoes around you, it's a bug. If you get less mosquitoes around you, it's a feature.

    i mean you dont hear it so loud if your on the streets or so but when your in a quite room you will hear it a little. its just unusual that you hear the illuminator when you turn it on. its not that of a big deal
