Dear Friends,
After the Battery on a DW-5600 is dead i try to Change the CR-2016 Cell and the Modul don't Work again.
I dont know if i make a Mistake to took the AC Kontakt on wrong Kontaks or at the inner Plate where the LCD is there are two golden Springs and there are a Third Hole for a Spring or not ?
Here is a Photo of the LCD Backside with the Two Springs:

There's only two springs meant to be there, and both of yours are in place, so I doubt that's the problem. Go ahead and reassemble the module. When you replaced the battery, did you do an AC reset? There's a contact on the module labeled AC (stands for all clear) just below the outer metal piece that comprises the button contacts. Reinstall the battery and clip it in. Take a pair of thin metal tweezers or a similarly shaped bent paper clip and touch the AC contact and the battery for a couple of seconds. The module should hopefully start back up again.

Yes i did it so, but nothing happens.
How many seconds must the AC Kontakt ?

The foto appearently shows the module with the PCB missing.
Why did you disassemble the module that far?
The only thing to remove for a battery exchange is the metal battery clip. :think:

Anyhow, search in this very forum for module 5600 and look if somebody shows pictures with disassembled 5600E modules (maybe for polarizer change). :)

There was no need to take out the entire module, just the battery cover. I hope you removed the module carefully.

First:
Is the battery you put in a good quality and working battery? Check this first. Many no-name batteries are duds right out of the package.

Second:
It looks the display is not making contact with the module circuit board properly and electrical signal is not getting to display. Check things are properly lined up especially those two straight "rubbber" parts in the picture you provided.

Count me in as also being mystified as to why the OP took out the module and then disassembled it... :-s A battery change is meant to be a simple task! As d2mac pointed out, just the battery clip needs to be untethered to access the cell and swap it out.

Hopefully, haumti is good with these kinds of tasks and can reassemble the module faithfully, without compromising it. Then, place it back inside the casing.

I've found most modern CASIO's rarely need AC reset. Older ones can be stubborn. I recently bought an old G-Shock MRG where the battery insertion didn't revive the display at first. Even AC reset didn't work right away. I removed the battery, then re-inserted it again. I then performed the AC reset a couple of times and the display revived. I have a feeling that there is some kind of capacitor on board the module that can need more time to clear and charge... also, since the module does have memory, sometimes it may require a few attempts to clear so that the data inside is free of corruption.

Also, once the reset is done and time displays properly, chances are 99.9% the module will be fine going forward.

Good luck haumti...
