    How can I do a factory reset on a Model 2178 (W-732H)?

    Hi

    How do I do a Factory Reset for my Model 2178 / W-732H G-Shock Casio watch (which is a few year old now).

    I put a new battery in recently. The problem I am trying to fix is that the Countdown Alarm timer no long bleeps AT ALL. This is true irrespective of whether the auto-repeat timer is set On or Off. And whether or not the Progress Beeper (on same menu) is set on or off.

    Strangely, the watch still beeps every time I hit the MODE button....

    Many thanks

    J


    P.S. What I need the watch to do is bleep just once every (say) 30 seconds so that I can use it to count my stretch exercises.
    And if I can't get my old watch to work - can you recommend any modern ones that have this function?

    The fact that you're getting sound should mean that you have the alarm spring in place.

    I can only suggest that you try the a/c reset procedure like on g shock modules...

    you'll have to access the module like you did to change the battery; there's normally a hole marked a/c somewhere on the back of the modules and you're supposed to short it/link it with a pair of tweezers with the back of the battery when you put in a new battery. This resets the module to factory state...
