Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I need to know how to do a manual set so i can set the clock to the exact time i want. It keeps going around and setting to its own time. I am on NY EST

When you put in a new battery, the hands advance to the hour and stop. It then waits to receive a radio signal and sets the time.
to do a manual set, insert the battery and hold down the M button until the correct time. Don't go past it or you will need to continue until it comes up again. There is no reverse.
The previous answers don't fit the HD-1688 Sheng Bang clock mechanism that I have.

On the Sheng Bang HD-1688 make sure you remove the locking pin from the back. It keeps the gears from moving while in shipment. Insert a new battery. Set the timezone switch to Pacific, Mountain, Central, or Eastern. Set the daylight savings switch to "On" unless you're in a state that doesn't observe it (Arizona, Hawaii...) The second hand will sweep to the 12:00 position and the hour hand to the 4:00 position, and the minute hand to the 12:00 position (I think. It may sweep to the 4:00 position too. The instructions aren't clear on this point). Place the hour, minute and second hands onto the clock shaft in that configuration. Press the "REC" button for five seconds to force the mechanism to seek a radio signal. Make sure you're near a window for best reception. It may take an hour or more for the clock to find a good signal. This works best at night.
Here's the location of the full manual:

To set up your clock simply install one fresh AA, LR6 ALKALINE battery. Due to the nature of long wave radio signals it is normally not possible to receive a signal during the day so it is best to install the battery late in the evening. Select your time zone by pressing one of the four time zone buttons PT-Pacific Time, MT-Mountain Time, CT-Central Time, ET-Eastern Time. The time zone buttons may be pressed any time after installing the batteries. If multiple buttons are pressed the clock will set to the time zone selected last. If no time zone is selected the clock will default to Pacific Time. Another time zone can be selected during or after the clock has set itself. Your clock can only set itself to one of the four time zones stated above. For time zones outside of PT, MT, CT or ET you must manually set the time using the Manual Time set button on the back of the movement.
When the battery is installed the second hand will advance eight seconds (two seconds per step x four steps). The clock is now searching for a signal. For the initial setting it is recommended to stand the clock in an upright position near a window. Within five minutes the clock will either receive the WWVB signal and set itself to the exact time, or it will determine that the signal is not receivable at its current location and time of day. If a signal is not receivable it will fast-forward the hands to the 4, 8, or 12 o'clock position and search for WWVB each
hour until a signal is received. If the time is manually set the clock will continue to periodically search for a signal and automatically reset the hands when the signal is received.
Select a location to place your radio controlled clock where it will be at least six feet away from a TV, computer, air conditioner or other household electrical appliances. The optimal location is near a window. Windows facing Colorado providing the best signal. The WWVB time signal will easily penetrate Masonry and wood framed buildings. WWVB will penetrate almost every residential building and most steel buildings if they have adequate windows. It is not possible, however, for WWVB to penetrate most indoor shopping malls and rooms in the center of large office buildings that do not have windows. In buildings that WWVB cannot penetrate you may set the time using the manual time set button. When the clock is exposed to the WWVB signal it will automatically set the hands to the exact time.
