Atomic clocks are tricky. The clock defaults to PST.
Turn OFF the atomic time feature (The little radar icon will disappear) Make sure that you have clicked the DST/TZONE button on the back of the clock to YOUR timezone (a P,M,C,or E icon will appear on the front screen.) Then turn the atomic feature ON and hopefully - all is well!

to Change the Time Zone Press and hold the “-“ button for 3 seconds the letter P
will appear where the seconds are than press and release the “-“ button until
the correct letter for your time zone appears.The four time zones are P is Pacific, M is Mountain, C is Central and E
is Eastern Time zone.Press the SET
button to confirm or leave the setting to confirm and exit automatically.
Hold down Alarm Set for about 5 seconds until the time flashes, then just press the hour and minute buttons until the time you want is shown. Remember that the pm light WILL come on if you need the alarm set for the evening.
This is more of a Clarification than a solution. I've determined that the SS-5000 is not recognizing the changes to DST that happened in 2007.
From 1986 to 2006 this was the first Sunday in April to the last Sunday
in October, but starting in 2007, it is observed from the second Sunday
in March to the first Sunday in November, adding about a month to
daylight saving time.
So in March the clock is still trying to keep the "earler" time and in November it's trying to keep the 'later' time.
I'm contacting HomeMedics Support to see if there's a resolution.
Hey, OK so you know how when you plug the clock in it takes like 5 minutes to upload? Well wait till you have the time set the atomic thing stops flashing. Now when you get there press the button on the inside of the outside temperature thing. Not the c/f one. The red dot should flash on the front of the thing your holding. It should work after that. If not then make sure you don't have any computers or cell phones by it that messes with it. Hope this helps.
make sure your time is set and the atomic clock time is recieved, then leaving the rear cover off of the transmitter, push the "tx" button not the "c/f" that is just for centegrade or ferenhight. you will see the red light on the front of reciever flash in a few seconds. The temp should display on your clock screen. If not, did the red l.e.d. light on transmitter flash. If not, its not sending data to clock. I have to reset and hit transmit every time I replace batteries on transmitter. Had no problems for over 2 years of using outside. If your not getting a reading with transmitter sitting next to clock after hitting "tx" button you may have defective transmitter.
I had the some problem a few days ago when we had a power outage during the night. Try unplugging it, leave it unplugged for about 10-20 seconds, and replug it back in. Reset your time on the clock and it should work then.
