Re: dvd clock

I see that this is a 50Hz unit from the United Kingdom.. I first thought that this was an issue as I have seen before. Inside the unit is a small clock or oscillator. The adjustment or the asociated componets are most liklk at fault. The Microprocessor could also be at fault. This adjustment cannot be done without a frequency counter or an ocilliscope. If the unit is less then a month or so i would say take it back to the store or take the unit intp a repair shop and get it fixed under warranty. Good Luck Ps Please dont forget to rate this thread.

This is stupid but I lost my manual and can't figure out how to change the time on my Philips DVP3050v

I assume you wish to set the VCR (model DVP3050) clock. This is easy, just follow these instructions:

  1. Press VCR, then press DISC/VCR MENU so MENU appears. If the clock has never been set, the CLOCK SET menu may appear when you press DISC/VCR MENU. If so, follow the instructions from step 3 on this page.
  2. Press \/ or /\ to select CLOCK SET.Then, press >.
  3. While the MONTH space is flashing, press \/ or /\ until the month appears.Then, press >.
  4. While the DAY space is flashing, press \/ or /\ until the day appears.Then, press >.
  5. While the YEAR space is flashing, press \/ or /\ until the year appears.Then, press >. The day of the week will appear automatically.
  6. While the HOUR space is flashing, press \/ or /\ until the hour appears.Then, press >.
  7. While the MINUTE space is flashing, press \/ or /\ until the minute appears.Then, press >.
  8. While the AM or PM space is flashing, press \/ or /\ to point to AM or PM. Your selection will flash on the screen in the AM/PM space.
  9. Press CLEAR/RESET or > to start the clock.
And you can now have an online manual, click here. (Adobe pdf required) Directions on page 22.

Set clock on sd-kv550-su

Hi there,

There are two ways to set the clock on your machine, firstly by using the 'auto clock' feature and also a manual setup, if the auto setup doesn't work then you will need to setup your machine manually. the 'auto clock' feature will atempt set itself up and will take approx 4 mins for the machine to adjust itself. There is also a daylight saving setting which you can either have set to on or off. The auto and manual steps that I have added below have been taken from the user manual for your your Toshiba SD-V295 pages 24 - 26.

Hope this helps,


Auto Clock Adjustment

4. Wait at least three minutes and press POWER.
5. Press CALL DISPLAY to check the clock setting on the on screen display.
6. If the clock is not set, check the antenna
condition. The AUTO CLOCK may not function properly if the reception condition
is not good.

How do I set the time on my Pioneer RT500?


Please follow the instructions given below... =)

Setting the clock

The clock is set to the correct time automatically, but it
can also be set manually. The clock can be set for

• Turn ON the TV and set it to the video input mode.
• Select “CLOCK” from “SYSTEM SETUP”. For the
procedure, see steps 1 to 3 in “Using the SETUP

2 Press  or  to select the desired menu and
press ENTER.
The submenu screen of the selected menu will appear.
3 Press  or  to select the desired submenu and
press ENTER.
The screen for the selected submenu will appear.

CLOCK (manually)
You can manually set the date, year and present time
with the remote control.
Ex.: Setting the clock to “10:20AM” October, 30th, 2004.
1 Select “CLOCK” and press ENTER.
01/01/04 12:00AM

10/30/04 10:200AM
4 Repeat steps 2 and 3 to set the date, year and
present time, and press ENTER. The SETUP MENU
will close.
This completes clock time setting.
You can automatically set the clock by turning “ON” the
AUTO CLOCK function.
When you want to set the auto clock function to “OFF”,
select “AUTO CLOCK”, press ENTER and select “OFF”
from the list.

Auto clock setting
You must connect the antenna or cable before connecting
the AC cord to the power source.
Wait 30 minutes with the power turned off, after the
antenna or cable is connected, for the auto clock
feature to activate.
After the clock is set automatically, you may have to set
the time zone and daylight saving time. (See page 26.)
Press STANDBY/ON to turn on the DVD/VCR after the
auto clock operation completed.
• When shipped from the factory, the “AUTO CLOCK”
option is set to “ON” position.
• If you turn the DVD/VCR on during auto clock
setting, the clock is not set.
• After a power failure or disconnection of the power
plug, the clock setting will be lost. In this case, wait
30 minutes before turning the DVD/VCR on.
• With cable box connection, if the auto clock setting
is unsuccessful, select the PBS channel carrying
the XDS information, then turn the DVD/VCR off.
After 30 minutes, turn the DVD/VCR on.
• If the clock is not set automatically, set the clock

In the rare event that you live within the broadcast range
of two stations in two different time zones, the DVD/VCR
may recognize the wrong station for the auto clock set.
To correct the situation:
Select “STANDARD TIME” and select the time zone from
the list below.
Selectable time zones and correction times
ATLANTIC: GMT – 4 hours
(GMT: Greenwich Mean Time)
EASTERN: GMT – 5 hours
CENTRAL: GMT – 6 hours
MOUNTAIN: GMT – 7 hours
PACIFIC: GMT – 8 hours
ALASKA: GMT – 9 hours
HAWAII: GMT – 10 hours
• When shipped from the factory, the “TIME ZONE” is
set to “AUTOMATIC”.
• After making the auto clock setting, in some cases
the clock may display another time zone. You can
correct the clock by selecting your time zone
setting above.
• When the clock is not set or you set the clock
manually, the time zone setting is not available.
You can set the clock to daylight saving time automatically
or manually.
To select daylight saving time, select “DAYLIGHT
SAVING TIME” and select “ON”, while to cancel the
daylight saving time, select “OFF”.
ON: For manual setting (forward 1 hour)
OFF: For manual setting (back 1 hour)
AUTOMATIC: For automatic setting (read XDS in
the signal)
• When you want to set daylight saving time, on the
first Sunday in April you set it to “ON”, and on the
last Sunday in October you set it to “OFF”.
• When shipped from the factory, the “DAYLIGHT
SAVING TIME” option is set to “AUTOMATIC”.
• When the clock is not set, the daylight saving time
setting is not available.
• When there is no daylight saving time in your area,
always select “OFF”.

Clock is faster than should be

I have the same problem. Don't try using the auto clock update from antenna/cable either, that always sets it way off, if it even works at all I just keep setting it back manually. But now my unit has more major problems. It won't record anymore, its time to buy a better box.
