My Illuminator 10 year battery (Khaki) is 6 months old, and got all messed up last Friday.

The day and date cannot be coordinated: either right date, wrong day, or right right day, wrong date.

Thanks.
The issue with the day-date is the format or that you can't set it up to work properly?
Aleksandr Kamennyi
Aleksandr Kamennyi Tech Expert & Writer
It shows either wrong day and correct date, or vica versa.

Casio's system makes it much more complicated than it needs to be, so I'm not surprised you're having a problem like this, sir.
