I believe that if you HOLD DOWN the "clock" button and press "seek" for minutes and "tune" for hours you should be able to reset your clock. Remember that if you press the + "seek" you will increase the minutes and if you press the - "seek" you will decrease the minutes. The same for "tune". The left will decrease and the right will increase hours. If this doesn't work, there is something wrong with the contacts behind these buttons, or some other problem.
Good luck.

Buick century radio issue

Could be a security issue. When an GM OEM radio is removed and then reinstalled, it usually requires a code to re-enable it. Details about the code should be in your owners manual, and if it was set when the car was new and you do not have the code, a dealer may be able to help to reset it.

I have a 1989 Tbird with 'only' 6,700 miles. Completely new car, but radio will not play. The station (example: 98.9) displays all the time, (no clock/time displays). With scan button, the radio continues...

Over time the capacitors in the radio start to brake down. You might have to just take it out of the car and see how it looks inside of the radio. You might find the same one on ebay to keep the care stock. Good luck.

Here you can download user manual in pdf format
From page 107 on Manual:

"Clock operation:

The clock is on in the display regardless of
what mode, media, or function the radio is in
as long as the ignition is in ACC or ON.
Clock set
To adjust the clock, press the knob
for longer than 1.5 seconds. A beep signals
entry into the clock adjustment mode and
CL appears in the display. The hours will be
blinking. Rotate the knob to adjust
the hours to the desired level.
Press the knob a second time and
the minutes will start to blink. Rotate the
knob to adjust the minutes to the
desired level.
After 10 seconds, the radio or CD display
will reappear. Once the clock is set to the
desired level, press the knob repeatedly
until the radio or CD display reappears."
