I just bought gold defender frogman and I just realise it later tonight that the watch didn't beep when I change mode.
After I try the alarm and all the normal function I am now sure that my module is 'mute'.
I try to read the manual and nothing stated that the watch can be muted.
Did I just bought a faulty module?

Charge level is full and I didn't notice any mute function on the dial like my G5500.

I can't see any mention of a mute feature in the manual. It could be the spring, though as atomicsolar says, it's unlikely anyone's needed to take the back off. Try pressing and holding the bottom-right button to see if the alarm works. If it doesn't, it sounds like the alarm spring is either missing or not making good contact.

Why? Doesn't it use a rechargeable battery to store the power? Rechargeable batteries loose their power over time and store less and less power, so after a period they must be changed...
I'm probably mistaken, but I didn't think that model had been around long enough to need a new solar battery.

It must be a contact problem...i had the same issue with my gl-100 and i fixed it by accident when i opened it to change the battery...maybe it needs a reset (short)...

Wiyono, where did you buy it? Surely you can get your money back, right? :think:

@ Mansrow,

Did you lose your spring too, Mansrow guy? Were you muted? :)

Thanks for the responses :thanks and I know my description or responses will sound funny :-d as english is not my first language.

Gold Defender is GW-200GM-9.

I bought it new as an old stock from a hardware store. Don't think they have a return policy but they have a full 1 year warranty though.

I will go to the service center tommorrow, hopefully the problem only comes from a missing spring. I guess at a time (they are from 2002) the dealer change the capacitor and loose the spring in the process :oops:.

Hopefully this frog will not need animal rescue organization :).

I don't think that the Gold Defender uses a spring for the speaker. It looks a like simple contact. It's possible that the speaker is no good.

The rubber pad could have been put on wrong, so the holes in it aren't lined up with the contact/s.

I hope it's easily repairable because the service center in my country is famous for they 'lack of spare part' in servicing.
