    DW 5600e Problem

    I've had this watch for 3 months shy of 2 years. When I turn on the light. It's hard to read the numbers. This just started to happen. Why?

    Update. When I turn on the light. The digital read out disappears. The screen goes blank. Battery? But less than 2 years use. The only feature I use is the light. I thought the battery is good for 3 years? I've heard the battery is good for 10 years? What gives?

    Ok .. It sounds to me like it needs a new battery. If you don't use the EL backlight too much, the battery may last 5 or 10 years. The more backlight use, the shorter the battery life. Thatís the reason many prefer solar watches. You may check on YouTube videos about DW-5600E battery change. Thereíre some! Also thereíre a couple of posts about this topic on the internet. Check it out. Good luck!
