    Unless someone went inside solar G and deliberately messed with it, chances of it returning to world of functioning are very very high.

    Most popular way to mess things up along with breaking contacts/small plastic notch, loosing o-ring and little springs.

    Re: Will it rise again??

    So a quick update.....

    The watch just arrived, and after a quick check under the hood it turns out there's no battery!

    However, a few seconds blast under my strong lamp shows the module and solar panel to be working.

    The gasket is good too.

    One odd thing though - The module doesn't display anything if the battery clip is closed! If it's open and I hold it to the light it works, weird!!

    Oh, I also lost the alarm spring like an idiot . I thought I had my finger over it, doh! Spring bar spring here I come!

    The bezel was out of stock with Casio UK so they've ordered from Tokyo, they already delivered the new straps and bezel studs.

    **On the bezel studs - Are they easy to get into the bezel, and are they literally push in and leave, or do they have to be locked into place at all?**

    So I'll order a new CTL 1616 today, hopefully it won't be long until it's all together.

    Not all dead watches are miracles. Some are dead. Good thing you did not found regular cell inside.
    I had Citizen "serviced" instead of new rechargeable cell they put regular and claimed charging not working....
    For sure it did not.

    the studs just push in and lock in place, no fuss, no muss.

    with the battery clasp, try popping a CR1616 in and close it. if it works, your good to go...then take it out.

    When you close the hatch it is probably touching some aspect of the bottom (neg side) and shorting out. Try a small bit of tissue wadded in the battery chamber and see if it works. Don't forget the AC reset
