    I replaced the batteries, and it went to 00:00, and for two days has not changed. It used to reset itself around 1 or 2 A.M. But now it does nothing. What do I do now?

Skyscan atomic clock problem


Look carefully at the back of your clock for a reset button. The temp may have encountered a problem and stopped working. Also, be sure the battery is fresh. Hope this helps.

Hello

The SkyScan ATOMIC Clock

With the Skyscan Atomic Clock, you have the most accurate timepiece within the continent. It can receive the time signal transmitted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), which is regulated by 3 atomic clocks and deviates less than 1 second within 3,000 years. The NIST broadcasts the time signal (WWVB, 60kHz) continuously from Fort Collins, Colorado. This signal can be received anywhere in the continental USA that long wave (AM) radio reception is possible with a portable radio. It is expected that the signal can cover a distance of over 2,000 miles from the transmitter. Therefore, your clock will receive the signal within the broadcast range anywhere an AM signal can be received; generally the signal cannot be picked up in massive metal and concrete structures unless near a window. In addition, some environmental effects (see next page) may affect the transmitting distance.

I cannot get my SkyScan Atomic Clock to sync with Colorado.I have replaced the batteries and I have waited since Nov 6th and it stil hasn't happened. My Clock is model 87315. Please help


I have the same model. Make sure you have good batteries and move the clock away from any electrical equipment. Since WWVB broadcasts at a frequency of 60kHz, this could be a harmonic of 60 Hz.

If all else fails, remove the batteries, take the clock outside and reinstall the batteries. If you do this at night you should pick up a signal..

I just had to move my clock out of the computer room and it picked up the signal at noon.

Good luck

Our Skyscan atomic wall clock will not stay at the correct time since we had the daylight savings time. I replaced the battery because each day at noon it would randomly reset it self to the old time (1...


take the batteries out and leave them out for at least a minute. when you put the (new) battereis back in be sure that you have the correct time zone pushed and if there is a DST button or switch make sure that is pushed/set as well. place the clock with its back facing colorado and leave it overnight, it should reset itself ok.

I am having trouble setting my skyscan atomic clock i took the battiers out and need to reset the whole clock.The modle number is 88900-8901


taking the batterys out and leaving them out for 60 seconds or more will in effect reset the clock. Put the new batteries in and wait for the skyscan to detect the outside temperature (if this unit has a outside sender). after this show on the screen push the button that corresponds to your time zone. You can now set the clock with the push buttons or take the clock to a wall that faceing? ( you don't say where you are located), the WMV signalyou need to set the clockto is coming from Colorado USA ( if your in the us) so make sure the back of the clock is facing toward colorado. let the clock sit overnight as the best signal will be recieved when its dark and especially in the very early morning, just before sunrise. this should automatically set the clock for you. good luck

The outside temp sender won't work. We put new batteries in it, but it does not send a signal. It will not put an outside temp on the clock.


Simple, the instructions state that when changing the batteries on the outside temp. sensor, you must also change the batteries on the main clock unit. I had same problem when I changed the sensor batteries until I pulled the batteries from the clock and it reset fine. ( Sensor batteries first, then clock batteries. ) The clock will reset to atomic time overnight so don't worry if it doesn't read correctly at first.

S10Scan atomic clock model 87310 time is 4;pm should be 10:am


Hi

Time zone setting
Language Setting
The weekdays can be displayed in LCD1 with the pre-set languages: US English, French and Spanish.
1. Set the desired language for the weekday display in LCD 2 by use of the + key.
2. Press the SET key to enter the mode “Manual Time Setting”.
Manual Time Setting
In case the Skyscan Atomic Clock is not able to detect the WWVB-signal (disturbances, transmitting distance, etc.), the time can be manually set. The clock will then work as a normal Quartz clock.
Note:
In 12 hours mode the time will be displayed with an additional “PM” for the time from 12:00 noon until 11:59.
1. The hour digits will start flashing on LCD1. Set the desired hours by pressing the +key followed by pressing the SET key.
2. Now the minute digits will start flashing. Set the desired minutes by pressing the +key . If the + key is held, the units will increase by 5.
3. Press the SET key to move to the “Year Setting”.
Note:
The unit will still try and receive the signal every day despite it being manually set. When it does receive the signal, it will change the manually set time into the received time. During reception attempts the WWVB tower icon will flash. If reception has been unsuccessful, then the WWVB tower icon will not appear but reception will still be attempted the following hour.
WWVB time reception takes place from 12:00 am through 6:00 am each day (attempts WWVB reception every full hour within this time frame). When the time signal is received for example at 1:00 am, the Skyscan Atomic Clock will not attempt to receive the WWVB signal for the remaining hours until 6:00 am. Therefore, the next signal attempt will take place between 12:00 am and 6:00 am the next day. The other times WWVB reception takes place, are upon setup and after manual time set exiting mode. Reception is generally not possible during daylight hours due to the interference of the sun.

Thank you
