Hi guys, was wondering if anybody encountered this.

So I changed the battery on the Sea Touch, and I noticed I have the "wrench symbol" in my LCD displayed on the bottom as you can see.

I checked the manual and its says its error code for internal malfunction.:-s

I'm guessing there is some sort of system alert when the back is opened for service.
All my functions on the watch is working as it should, no change or malfunction IMO.

So is there possibly a procedure to do a full reset on this watch to try clear this trouble code that has now appeared due to a battery change?

Thanks in advance.
Dave.

Did you change the battery yourself? If so, you'll need to send it to a service centre to have it recalibrated. Only a handful of watchmakers are trained in the niche Tactile range, as it requires specialist training for each movement.

Hi Sean, yes I did change the battery myself.
I didn't read anywhere that battery changes must be done through Tissot service. :(
I was assuming that there must be some sort of full reset procedure like many other watches.

Thanks for your reply.

This should have been explained by the retailer when you purchased, and it's also in your warranty booklet (along with the list of service centres).

Unfortunately you've also voided any manufacturers warranty by opening it up, so will likely be charged for any future work.

this is a quartz watch with stepper motor for the dials, :think: no precision movements in here buddy and I cracked how to reset the computer to get rid of the spanner fault code.:-!

OK,
1.So Put the watch into sleep mode as per the manual.
(activate touch screen, touch centre till OPT appears, middle button once and the shows 24h or 12h, touch centre twice to show SLEEP then leave a few seconds and LCD goes blank and both hands go to the 12 o'Clock position)
2.once in sleep mode hold the 2 o'Clock position button for 6 seconds then touch the 6 o'Clock or Dive position on the face of the watch,
3.the digital display should show something like 06G316, if not repeat step 2.
4.then use 2 o'Clock position button to cycle through all the different message codes until you are back at the first one.
5.finally use the 3 o'Clock position button to come out of sleep mode and hey presto done spanner gone.

Thats very interesting. I've always thought there might be a solution to do a DIY reset. :-!
But I no longer have the watch to try but I'm sure somebody can surely benefit from this procedure.

Can anybody here try this and confirm that this method does in fact reset and remove the tool icon from the display after changing ones battery.

Big thanks to Troyconabeer. ;-)
Cheers,
Dave.

Great work on this!!

Now, has anyone removed the solid pins holding the strap to the case and replaced them with standard springbars?

Which bars did you use as I've read some will interfere with the compass due to the magnets in the watch

I've had one for about a month. When I first bought it, there were two things I didn't like about the watch. The first was the issue if you replaced the battery yourself, with the error code, but now that has been taken care of. The second thing I don't like, is how the rubber strap attaches to the case. It uses a pin/collar system, instead of a standard springbar. This week, I'm going to remove the strap to see if a regular strap and springbar will work. If so, it makes me love this watch even more.

Just a quick note of thanks to Troyconabeer for this bit of programming magic. Followed these steps after a battery change error - presto, reset to full working order!

I would like to thank troyconabeer as well. I purchased a Sea Touch that needed a battery replacement, and it worked perfectly! So, THANKS again!

This reset worked for me too. I called the Govberg Watch service center and they just said "send it in". I bought the watch for an extreme freedive course during which it performed perfectly. It was cool to see that I dove to 66' and returned to the surface in 48 seconds.

When the battery gets low, most functions temporarily stop working. It does this to conserve the battery for time and date. I hope this helps.
