Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

My clock has been set manually. Yet, it has twice set itself back one hour twice in the course of last week. Meanwhile, I have the timer set for a 4-day recording. I do I set the timer off so I can re-set the clock and which television station do I use in my area to set it to Auto (I live in West Palm Beach, FL 33412)? I have a GoVideo DV2130.

Hi,

To my understanding:

  • the timer you are concerned is on the GoVideo DV2130;
  • you need a TV station in your area to reference an automatic update of the clock (Auto Setup to instantly set the time and search for channels);
  • you are programming the GoVideo DV2130 to do a 4day recording.
A few ideas to address your concern:
  • On the very first time that the unit was setup, it will automatically search for the TV channels and a TV channel that it can use as a reference for the clock. Since you posted that you have to manually correct/set the clock indicates that there are no TV stations within your area that serves as some sort of "beacon" to update or be reference for the auto correction of the GoVideo's internal clock;
  • A possible way of providing a workaround is with the use of a UPS (uninterrupted power supply) similar to the ones used by PCs. The idea is even in the event of a power failure/interruption, the GoVideo wold not loose power and therefore the clock would continue;
  • seek the services of a qualified professional to partially modify the timer circuitry of the GoVideo and attach a back-up rechargeable battery;
  • the only reset I am aware of is by pressing and holding the FF & REW keys on the front panel for five seconds, power OFF and then ON again. This will perform a reset to factory default settings. It will also erase any programming and user settings/configurations. In effect you will have to perform the AUTO setup all over again.
Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Problem #1. On model #DT300 the instructions under Set Time of Day # 3 does not change the day. The only place I can get the day/s to change is under the programming. What is wrong with it. I have...


Thank you for very clear question, and timer identification.
1) I don't have repair for defective timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#DT300
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/DT300-series-manual.pdf

2) Choose DT300 format
#3 says to press-and-hold CLOCK button until display shows 24H or 12H
Then release CLOCK button.
Next press HOUR button to select either 12H or 24H
This lets you choose am-pm format -or- choose military-time format where 11pm is 23

3) Set current time
Press-and-hold CLOCK button throughout whole current time setting.
Do not release CLOCK button until current time settings are finished.
Next, press HOUR button, and then MINUTE button, and then DAYS button until current hour, minute and day display.
Then release CLOCK button.
If this step does not work, then timer has gone bad.
Replace with locally available Utilitec 155671 from Lowes or Westek TE06WHB from Target
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59377

4) How to set DT300 timer program for full week of operation.
Each program requires you to set program 1 ON time and program 1 OFF time
Be careful to avoid program conflicts and overlaps so timer works as expected.

For program 1 ON time, you press PROGRAM button until 1 and ON display.
Release Program button.
Then select hour, minute and days. In this case you want all days of week, so you keep pressing DAYs button until whole week displays: Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa Su

Then you set program 1 OFF time, you press PROGRAM button again until 1 and OFF display.
Release Program button.
Then select hour, minute and days. In this case you want all days of week, so you keep pressing DAYs button until whole week displays: Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa Su

If you set ON time for all days of week, and OFF time for Tu Tuesday, then timer will not work correctly.

5) Read manual and add a comment for additional help

My Taco Time Clock 265 Analog is not working. I overloaded the circuits last week and the GFI outlet 'died'. I have replaced that outlet, but the time clock is not operating. Help, I long for immediate hot...


Yes it should be easy to replace.
The manual appears on following link:
http://www.taco-hvac.com/uploads/FileLibrary/102-067A.pdf

'Analog' timer has dial face that rotates as time passes, the 'digital' timer has programming buttons.

The manual seems very straightforward.
Turn power off, connect wires, set timer.

Of course what seems simple to experts who do wiring each day, may not seem simple to person asking question. So add a comment with specific detailed question if you need help.

Have GE digital timer 15117. Can't figure out how to make the display show AM/PM so I can set it correctly. Clock hour/min just cycles through 12 hours without noting AM or PM setting. Can't program...


GE 15117 manual
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/GE-15117-Manual.pdf

You might try a new AA battery.
Some guy wrote in this week and said he bought 6 timers and all the batteries were bad except 1.

Some timers, like Woods TD1300, and others have the 12 hour or 24 hour option.
You press and hold Time button to choose 12 hour or 24 hour
But GE 15117 manual says nothing about this option.

GE 15117 timer is same timer as Woods 59403
Several folks have written in past couple weeks about the Woods 59403 timer skipping over functions.
The best I can guess is your timer is malfunctioning like the other people's timers.

Woods 59403 manual is identical to GE manual, and says nothing about 12 hour 24 hour option either
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Woods-59403.pdf

I test timers for programming and wiring difficulties.
Yesterday 3 timers arrived here, and 1 didn't work.
I took it apart and tested the electronics, and something went bad.
When these timers don't work, you get your money back or throw them away.

How to program a woods TD1000 indoor timer


Here's how to set Woods TD1000 timer

This is older timer with backup battery. Plug in timer to see if battery will work. Display shows when battery is charged. No display, then timer is no good.

TD-1000 timer has 8 on-off functions per 24-hour day ...newer timers each offer 7 day function with choices of each-day, week-day, or week-end programming. The wider choices with newer timers may explain why TD1000 instructions are hard to find

Timer has 5 buttons + reset:
TIME MODE PROG HOUR MIN

Set time
Press and hold TIME > use Hour to set hour, Min to set minute
Release Time button ... correct time should show

Program: Capacity for 8 on-off times per day
Press PROG to set first ON time
ON and number 1 are displayed on left
Use hour and minute button to set ON time

Press PROG to confirm
Now, OFF and number 1 are displayed
Use hour and min key to set OFF time

Press PROG to confirm

When 8 programs are set, Press MODE key.
Choose Manual OFF. Manual ON, Auto ON, Auto Off

To use programs, select Auto ON

DST daylight savings time has to be done manually.
Press HOUR MIN button simultaneously > timer set up one hour
Repeat again and timer goes back one hour

Do not plug timer into extension cord > must be plugged into wall

Need a manual for drayton tempus 3 heating control


I've ended up with a Drayton Tempus 3 when I bought my house, and I think this is how it works. It allows you to set 2 Timers (I'll call them timer 1 and timer 2) so that you can control Hot Water or Heating On/Off times twice a day. The unit has 6 buttons - 2 for Adjustment, 2 for Hot Water and 2 for Heating. The 2 Adjustment buttons allow you adjust the Clock Time, or allow you to adjust Timer 1 and/or Timer 2. NOTE: Timer 1 is the time refered to on the Heating / Hot Water Select buttons if you press "Once". If you select "Twice" on these the both Timer 1 and Timer 2 are taken into account. For example if you want Hot Water to come on Once between 8pm -10pm, but you want Heating to come on Twice between 6am - 7am, and 8pm -10pm, you have to do the following: Set Timer 1 to 8pm - 10pm, and set Timer 2 to 6am -7pm. Then select Once for Hot Water, and select Twice for Heating. Hope this helps.

set the hour.
4. Press Set/Demo. The minute indicator on the clock should start blinking.
5. Use the "Track/Tuner Forward" and "Track/Tune Backward" keys to
