Hi faulkquarter

I take it that the clock displayed with this problem if not a 22717 model. The one I have sighted is a digital clock. Generally, you need to hold down the "time" button and also press the "hours" and "mins" buttons at the same time to set the time. If this is not how your clock appears, please give me the button names and I can write a method of changing the time for you.

regards
Graeme

Wesclox 22717 reset problem

Searched the web but couldn't find the answer either. I was about to throw the clock away when my 10 year old son came by and said "press hard". So that's the answer! I used a pen to press the time button then hit the hour and minute and it did the reset. Good luck.

Can not change time zone on sharper image model lm521 projection clock


I got to liking the Sharper Image LM521 Digital Clock so much that I finally took the time to figure out how to manually set it-it was that or toss it! The instructions are as follows:
NOTE!!!
AFTER installing fresh batteries, or removing and reinstalling the batteries:
Successively pressing the "SET" button results in steps 1.) to 11.) below, each of which describes the particular/specific LM521 clock function you you can manually set.
HOWEVER, pressing the "SET" button after the clock had been previous set and running, will start the manual clock settings from step "2.)," "SET Offset Hours..." To start from step 1.), remove and reinstall the batteries.

Sharper Image LM521 Digital Clock

PROGRAM/MANUAL SETTING MODE
After inserting the batteries:
The whole LCD screen lights up showing the different settings, etc.
After several seconds, the LCD screen clears and displays:
A flashing antenna
Upper left hand side of the LCD display. USA Time Zone Map
Middle right side of the LCD display (if necessary, to see, remove and reinsert batteries).
WAIT FOR AUTO TIME SET
A flashing antenna
> This indicates the clock is trying to auto set the time according to the WWVB radio/satellite time signal. Set on windowsill for best chance of success.
If it can't detect the signal, mannual setting is required, starting with the time zone.
> Manually set time ONLY if you are absolutely certain the WWVB signal cannot be found. Otherwise any manual time setting will be auto set to the WWVB time when its signal is detected, which may be many hours later.

SET USA Time Zone
1.) Press "SET" -- US time zone
> press "MODE" repeatedly until the desired time zone is reached.
5 = Eastern standard time (default setting)
6 = Central standard time
7 = Mountain standard time
8 = Pacific standard time
9 = Alaskan standard time

SET Offset Hours to Compensate for Satellite Signal
2.) After step 1.) above, press "SET"
A flashing "-7h" (minus 7 hours, default) and flashing USA Time Zone map appear.
This default setting worked just fine in New Mexico, MST, and may also work for your time zone as well.
> Press "MODE" to set from "-0" to "-12h" (minus 0 to 12 hours).
> Set to "-0h" if the satellite time signal set your clock to the correct time for the US time zone you live in.
> Set from "-1h" to "-12" to offset the time set by the satellite signal in case it does not match the time in your time zone. (E.g., 3pm -1h = 2pm.)
> NOTE: The default setting is -7h. If the satellite signal resets the time, say to 9pm, the time displayed will be 2pm (9pm-7h)--but if it should display 5pm instead to match your time zone, then set offset to -4h. Hence, the need to correctly set the offset hours if the -7h default value does not work for you.

SET Daylight Savings Time (DST)
3.) Press "SET" -- DST (Daylight Savings Time)
> Press "MODE" to set ON/OFF

SET Time
4.) Press "SET" (5no = seconds)
"5no" displays, plus flashing bars for seconds (not minutes as it falsely seems).
> Press "MODE" to set from 0 to 60 seconds
5.) Press "SET" (set hours)
> hour bars flash > press "MODE" to set hours
6.) Press "SET" (set minutes)
> minute bars flash > press "MODE" to set minutes

SET Date
7.) Press "SET"
> press "MODE" set year
8.) Press "SET"
> press "MODE" set month
9.) Press "SET"
> press "MODE" set day
SET Week Day
10.) Press "SET"
> press "MODE" set week day, Mom through Sun (Mo is default)

SET Standard (12) / Military (24) Time
11.) Press "SET"
> Press "MODE" set 12/24

CEILING DISPLAY:

SET/ROTATE Ceiling Projected Time/Temp Position
12.) Repeatedly press button with four tiny arrows pointing opposite each other (rightside of "DSPL" button) until the Time/Temperature display on the ceiling is oriented how you want it.

SET Ceiling Projection Brightness, or turn off
13.) Pressing button with sun symbol (leftside of "DSPL" button) cycles ceiling display from off, to brightness levels 1, 2, and 3.

SELECT between Ceiling Projected Time, Temp or Both
14.) Pressing "DISPL" repeatedly cycles between M0 (time), M1 (temperature), M2 (time & temperature auto switch every second or so).

How do you get the clock to operate on a battery only (uses a 9V). I insert the battery, then unplug the clock. The display is dark. But when I plug it back in, it is on the right time. If there was a...


They're just used to retain memory. That's all. Once power comes on, the time should be correct. Now if the power went out and there was no battery on the clock, when the power comes back on it goes straight to flashing 1200.

Set clock, date, alarm on SI686 CD/ Radio / Alarm Clock with Sound Soother


Can you clarify what you need help with? To SET THE CLOCK push the "Mode" button twice. (The current time setting flashes on the display) Once it is flashing, Decrease the hours by pressing "1" Increase hours by pressing "2" Decrease minutes by pressing "3" and increase minutes by pressing "4". If no additional buttons are pressed the time will reset in about 10 seconds and the display will stop blinking.

TO SET THE DATE press the "mode" button 4 times. The current date setting will flash on the display. Decrease the date by pressing 3. Increase the date by pressing 4.

Decrease months by pressing 1. Increase the months by pressing 2. The date will reset in about 10 seconds when you stop pushing the buttons.

TO SET THE ALARM Press the "mode "button once. The display will begin to flash. Change the hours by pressing either 1 (increase) or 2 (decrease). To change the minutes, press 3 or 4. 3 decreases the minutes and 4 increases the minutes. Once you have the time reset, leave the unit alone for about 10 seconds. the display will stop blinking indicating the time has been reset.

TO ACTIVATE THE ALARM push the round button on the far right. You will see the alarm icon come on or off on the LCD display on the right side. Be sure you have set the AM or PM time correctly on the alarm time. It helps to recheck this now as I have made this mistake several times.

If you get stuck on military time and want the 12 hour clock the answer is posted on this site, as well.

Hope this helps.

Somehow the clock is displaying 24 hour time format. I want to get back to 12 hour format. How?


Push the mode button twice to enter the "set time" mode. Once the digital display is blinking, keep pushing "mode" until the PM display section in the upper left corner comes on. Once that happens you are back to the 12 hour clock. To set the clock, use the 1-4 buttons to set the hours and minutes.

Hope this helps.

The time display won't stop flashing


Q: Why does the time on my clock flash?
A: A flashing display is an indication of low battery power. We recommend using fresh alkaline batteries. We do NOT recommend using rechargeable batteries or heavy duty batteries in any of our digital products. They are not designed for this type of use and may cause the unit to perform as a defective unit or not at all. They will also cause the display to flash 100% of the time.

Westclox Travel Alarm


After selecting either TIME, DATE, or ALARM at the top of the screen, use the stylus to touch and hold the large time display. Hold it there for about 5 seconds and the clock will beep and the time display will start flashing. Then you can touch either the hours or minutes and it will increase by either 1 hour or 1 minute accordingly. When the DATE is selected, it shows the year in the large display. Again, holding the stylus on the year diaply for about 5 seconds will enter into the chqange mode. IN all cases, to exit the change mode simply select one of the other selections across the top: TIME, DATE, ALARM.
