Question about La Crosse Radio Controlled Atomic Clock

Open Question

Clock has not changed back to standard time

We have never had a problem with this clock before. It has always changed within 24 hours of the time change. This fall (5 days ago) it did not change and still has not changed. We are in the central time zone near San Antonio, TX.

SOURCE: After replacing the batteries in

Hello
After replacing the batteries do the following to set the time.


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.
OK.

Ethan Allen mantle clock chimes incorrectly on the hour how can I fix it. It is a wind clock


The next time it chimes multiple times turn the hour hand clockwise until it is pointing at the number of times it gonged. Next take off the dial nut off (make sure to put it in a plastic bag because they can be hard to replace) and turn the minute hand until it chimes signaling 15 minutes after. Now put the minute hand back on pointing to 3 o'clock and replace your dial nut and you are all set.

Battery operated George Nelson Ball clock running slow


Probable cause is low battery voltage, maybe the battery was not fresh or was of too low quality. For such a nice clock, extra cost in getting an Energizer Ultimate Lithium or VARTA Professional Lithium cell is justified and the AA sized battery with 3000 mAh will work for many years. Otherwise, use Alkaline batteries and don't forget to check the expiration date always. Check http://www.batteryshowdown.com/results-lo.html to get some ideas on what to buy and what to expect.

I have ajanta quartz wall clock model odc120. Its not running in time. Kindly let me know how to adjust the time on this clock


First change the batteries.
Then on the back panel you will see a lot of buttons. Push the slider button from normal to time. Then after pressing the mode button you can sequentially change the time date etc. Same way for setting up alarm...push the slider to alarm and set. After you have finished put slider switch to normal.

My Kadio Digital clock which runs on dry cells becomes slow by 1 minute every 2 days? Any way to fix?


I am having the same problem. My clock is running slow too.

I did purchase few years back another chinese clock. It was running fast.

So I guess, it is one of those trade/hallmark of "Made in China". Cheap price and cheap quality.

So viewers I would suggest dont waste your money in chinese products.
