Casio watch problem

Daylight savings time changes causes watch to be 1 hour ahead. When I reset it - I loose the signal. I've followed the manual,even had others do same. When daylight savings time first changed last week my watch was 2-5 minutes behind. Is the battery needing to be replaced? Had watch for about 2 years.

Thanks

    Its a Casio 3747 wave ceptor. The 2-5 minute problem resolved after the third time I reset it. Biggest problem is the daylight savings time making my watch an hour ahead!

Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Offhand, I would say yes to the battery replacement. Though watches are not within my immediate field. This would be based on your post "2-5 minutes behind". As to the "lost signal" after a reset, may I request that you post back the specific model number pls.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Thanks for commenting back.

    After the reset, have you tried performing again the "Current Time Setting"? This include:


    • setting again your Home City;

    • depending on your location, you may need to manually adjust the initial time.
    Am not sure if you have specifically the manual for your 3747, but pls try and download this reference manual http://ftp.casio.co.jp/pub/world_manual/... It may be different and offer you more insights.

    Cheers.

My Citizen Skyhawk analog UTC hour hand is alway 1 hour ahead of the UTC digital hour. I've tried reset and the hour/min hand alignment process without success. Any ideas other than sending in the watch...


You've gotta go to the set setting, one click out on the knob and cycle through all the timezones using the B button (the lower one) to change all the settings to OF (for winter) or ON (for summer time). According to their website FAQ, they can't determine when daylight savings time goes into effect for all the different time zones so there is no automatic changeover from SMT to normal and back again. Disappointing, I know. I just spent half an hour going through their website looking for some master switchover as well.

How do i change the hour? Only goes 6:40 and 5:40. cannot go back to 4:30 or ahead 24 hours.


I think you are changing from DST (daylight saving time) to local mean time.

Presumeably your problem is that the watch is not telling you the local time.

As the watch is radio controlled you can only change the time by choosing the location setting, so that the watch knows where you are.

Press the "mode" button to select the location abreviation and use other buttons to change to your local city.

When you have set the location, press the mode button to return to normal operation.

Cannot change from 24 hour to 12 hour also did not change to daylight savings time


To change from 24 hour to 12 hour, you hold down the "Mode" button until it switches from 24 hour to 12 hour or vice versa. To change the time zone, you hold down the "Set" button until the time zone that you set it in flashes (like "LAX" on my watch). Then you press the "Receive/Start/Stop" button to choose the specified time zone you want. To set for daylight savings time ("DST" on the watch), after holding the "Set" button and having the time zone flash, you could press the "Mode" button. It will give you a few options for the daylight savings time (Auto, On, or Off). I chose the "On" option, which immediately changed for daylight savings time. If you manually want to change the time, you could hold down the "Set" button and keep pressing the "Mode" button until the time starts flashing on your watch, then pressing the "Receive/Start/Stop" button until you change it to the time that you want. You could also set the watch to beep or chime after pressing the set button if you wanted to know that piece. You hold down the "Set" button when you are done to get it to stop flashing. These instructions worked for my Timex T5G341 Universal Radio Control Watch. I hope this helps.

Cannot changer from 24 hour to 12 hour


You could change between 12 and 24 hour by pressing the "Mode" button and the "Receive/Start/Stop" button at the same time. I still cannot figure out how to reset for Daylight Savings Time, though.
