Tip & How-To about Sony ICF-C273 Clock Radio

How to set the time and date (you have to do them both together)

To set the time and date (you have to do them both together):

  • First press and hold the 'CLOCK' button until it beeps then let go.
  • You will then be required to select the year by scrolling up or down with the 'TIME SET' rocker switch on the right hand side.
  • Once you have the right time, press the 'ENTER' button, to the right of the rocker switch once.
  • You will then be required to select the the month. Do this by once again using the 'TIME SET' rocker switch and then pressing 'ENTER'.
  • You will need to repeat this to select the date (day).
  • You then use this same process to select the time, starting with the hour and then the minute.
  • After you have finnished selecting the minute, press the 'ENTER' button once and then the set time, with the day in the top left corner will be shown. You do not need to press anything else. Your clock is now set.
REMEMBER to press the 'ENTER' button after selecting each thing to move you on to the next thing to set.

TIP; Beside the 'CLOCK' button there is a button which says 'D.S.T SUMMER T'. This is the button which automatically switches your clock from british summer time to winter time and back again. It means that you do not need to reset your clock every time. Make sure that it is in the right setting when you set the clock otherwise it could get confusing. You will know if it is on british summer time because a small sun with a clock face appears in the top right corner of the screen.

Good Luck x

how do you set the time on a Zenith Z1233ba


March 5, 2015.
I'm selling these Zenith Z1233BA Clock Radios
on ebay. I have sold about 10 without any problems, but someone just ask if I know where the get the instructions. I could not find the manual online.
Here are some of the basic.
To set the time set the lock button on the bottom to off, press the clock button, the clock will flash then use the set buttons on top to change the time. Use the <> to change the time, when the time is set press and hold the enter button until you hear a beep. You have to cycle through all the minutes to get to the next hour. Do the same to set the zone. And to set the Date select the CAL button and do the same as setting the time. Put it back on lock when the time, date and zone are set.

To set the Alarm press the Alarm Set button then use the set buttons on top change the Alarm time. Use the <> to change the Alarm time, when the Alarm time is set press and hold enter until you hear a beep. Press the Alarm On/Off button to select radio or buzzer for the alarm or alarm off. To set the PRESETS tune the radio to the station you want to be a PRESET, then press and hold a PRESET button until you hear a beep.

How do I change the time on my TIMEX T307S clock?


Hello
To adjust time follow this.

Auto-Set Time and Date Settings

This model is equipped with the Auto-Set feature, meaning that the time and date have been programmed at the factory

and will already be set when you first plug the model in. Auto-Set will automatically adjust the time and date settings for

daylight-saving time and leap years. Auto-Set is programmed for Eastern Standard Time; if you do not live in this time zone,

you can easily switch the setting to one of six other time zones.

1. To change your time zone setting, press and hold the 8 Time Zone Button. The current Auto-Set Time Zone in the

lower-right-hand corner of the display will flash for approximately ten seconds, after which the display will revert to the

standard clock display.

2. While the Auto-Set Time Zone is flashing, press the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to select your time zone.

The display will show each zone's current time setting. There are seven zones to choose from:

Auto-Set Time Zones

Z-01 Atlantic Standard Time

Z-02 Eastern Standard Time

Z-03 Central Standard Time

Z-04 Mountain Standard Time

Z-05 Pacific Standard Time

Z-06 Alaskan Standard Time

Z-07 Hawaiian Standard Time

3. Find your time zone, then press the 4 Enter Button or wait about ten seconds for the clock to beep twice and the

setting to lock into place.

Manual Time and Date Settings

1. To change your time setting, press and hold the J Time Set Button so that the clock display begins flashing.

2. While the display flashes, press the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to set the time. Hold a button for a few

seconds to set the time rapidly. Be sure to set the correct AM/PM time, shown by the PM Indicator.

3. After setting the time, press the 4 Enter Button or wait about ten seconds for the clock to beep twice and the setting

to lock into place.

4. To change the calendar, press and hold the 9 Date/7-5-2 Button until the display shows the flashing year.

5. Press the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to set the current year. When you have selected the year, press the

4 Enter Button, then use the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to set the month/day.
6. After you have set the date, press the 4 Enter Button or wait for the display to beep twice and lock into place.
