Hi All,

I am a new member.

I resently found my Tomy Wrist Bowling watch I bought new in the last 70s from a sport goods store in Myrtle Beach SC when I was a kid on vacation with my Parents.

It is not working, so I bought (2) new replacements batteries (Nuon 357) to replace the batteries I removed (EPX76). After I replaced the batteries, the watch is still not working.

I did see the forum TIP of putting the watch in a ziplock bag for a month with silicon gel packs.

Any other ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

HI.
I would open up and check contacts on board. Usually the negative side is corroded first. Open it and post a few high res pics here and we can take a look.

Not working at all,is often better than not working as it should!
And what John describes,falls on the former!:cool:
