Giriş

Although the Ecodrive watches made by Citizen contain a rechargeable battery, after a long period of usage the battery is no longer able to hold a charge. When that occurs, it would be less expensive to replace the battery instead of buying a new watch. This guide demonstrates how to properly perform a battery replacement on a Citizen Ecodrive watch.

    Are all the capacitors the same? How do I know which is correct for my watch model?

How about citizen c605? How to open for replace capacitor?cheers

Citizen alex - Yanıt

Before doing any repairs it might be a good idea to do these:

1. Place the watch to bright sunshine for one full day the dial facing straight to the sun.

2. After the sun treatment pull the knop fully out and keep it that way for 30 seconds (or more).

3. Press the knop back in and wait for 10 seconds.

4. If the watch now works normally, you saved the battery price and your fixing work…

5. If not, you unfortunately have to do as instructed here.

Good luck!

Does the Capacitor of an Eco-drive watch has a tendency to leak?

citizen ph - Yanıt

No Generally speaking electrolitic capacitors dry out from old age but these just lose their ability to hold a charge…. no leaking

Jeff Kohlmann -

Where can I get an adjustable wrench like the one in the picture?

Timothy Zorn - Yanıt

$16 watch tool kit on Amazon. http://a.co/icRAsX9

Jon Christensen -

Harbor Freight has an inexpensive one, Jules Borel, Cas-Ker Co., Esslinger, TwinCity and McCaw are a few companies that have watch related material and supplies…..

C. Hunt -

Harbour Freight only about 6 dollars

Can you explain/show how to fit the Citizen capacitor battery MT516F [295-7600 ] into a Citizen Eco-Drive Normandie Swarovski Crystals Womens Stainless Steel Case and Bracelet Black Watch MODEL NO EW9780-57E. the capacity battery has two contacts on the battery - one short and one long?

Leighton Cook - Yanıt

Easier to install than I had imagined just make sure you line up the little gold tab with the barely visible slot in the battery compartment. A magnifying glass helps. Also, this battery is so tiny that a tweezer is just about useless. Pick up the battery with a small piece of Scotch tape and guide into position.

Works perfectly now..

Leighton Cook -

So how do you get the capacitor out from under the retaining clip on a 8651M calibre movement??

Jonathan Gingerich - Yanıt

Clip must be removed first. I slid mine to remove

Jeff Kohlmann -

Hello! How would the capacitor in my watch? Citizen Model : gn-0-s-9

FABIAN MARIN - Yanıt

Look in Amazon

Jeff Kohlmann -

My Eco Drive was totally different. The back snaps off but first you need to remove the band. You need the correct tool to pop of the cover. The battery had an extremely small clip on top which took some time putting back on the battery. The back did not snap back on by hand, I used a tool designed specifically for that that. Also, there was an extremely small coil spring in the watch center which is not attached… it will pop out. The ends are two different sizes so be sure it goes back correctly. All my tools were purchased at Amazon.

Jeff Kohlmann - Yanıt

Would this be the same procedure for the stiletto G820-T001696 TA / 2N0600?

Brady Blackmon - Yanıt

Thanks for posting this … I figured this had to be a relatively easy thing to do (e.g., you’re basically replacing a coin-cell “capacitor” instead of a traditional watch battery) but I was amazed at how many online comments I read suggesting that this procedure was somehow “too difficult,” or “not worth it” for Eco-drive watches. My guess is that the only thing that would make it “not worth it,” is if, e.g., the watch is damaged, and/or the movement components too badly in need of internal cleaning/maintenance to make replacing the capacitor worth the effort.

josephine_66 - Yanıt

Hi josephine,

It seems like this is just a standard coin cell battery with a small bit attached. They can be found for around $20-30 usd on amazon. Just make sure to get the one that is compatible with your model. I found these three, hopefully one of them could work for you.

How do you change capacitor on a citizen aw1530-65e?

Regards

Zeusbooster - Yanıt

Hi, not completely sure about what I’m gonna say, but first remove the bracelet, to access the inner ring, then open it by following step 2 (I don’t have one to check that opening is the same though), then follow the steps which should be roughly the same for changing the capacitor.

hopes this help

Cajuteq - Yanıt

Thanks a lot! I used a digital caliper, instead of the adjustable wrench. My batterie held charge for 13 years. It is amazing. :-)

How can I remove the bottom cap of my watch womens zitizen eco

rodriguezlaurae - Yanıt

The item being replaced is a battery. The watches also have a capacitor in parallel with the battery which can drive the watch for some time while the battery is replaced. I suspect the capacitor also helps avoid pulling high (tiny high) current pulses from the battery as the hands are driven.

Hola quisiera saber cómo puedo encargar la batería de mi reloj, ustedes la venden ? Patricia Arcati

Super Anleitung, vielen Dank. Nach einer Viertelstunde war der Akku getauscht und das von einem, der zum ersten Mal in seinem Leben eine Uhr geöffnet hat.

Where can i buy a Stem and Crown for exactly this Watch ?

Franz Weber

fkwandco@sbcglobal.net

Franz Weber - Yanıt

the case/model number is located on the outside of the back, this will dictate all that is needed for the stem and crown, it tells the movement number

and the case number, color too, Jules Borel,Cas-Ker Co., TwinCity and McCaw are a few companies that supply watch material……

C. Hunt -

for the Eco-Drive E760 which is the correct battery to buy?

SimoneGallina - Yanıt

the number will be located or the existing battery/capacitor…..different makers may have different numbers for the same cell…..
