I guess the battery has run out on you. change the battery and you are good to go. I got to warn you though, if you are skittish on taking a good risk, do not try to change the battery yourself. It is a little piece of complex machinery. I have the same problem a while ago. I decided to change the battery myself after the watch repairman tried to sell me a new watch. And you know what, I'm glad I did. My atomic watch is working fine again.

The atomic clock did not reset to daylight savings time. How di I reset it?


Depending on which country you are in (the UK won't reset for a couple of weeks yet), your clock will automatically reset when it receives the adjusted time signal. If your clock is not receiving the signal, try moving it near a window and away from any electrical interference, or it is possible that your battery is getting low and has not got enough power to receive the signal.

Manual for SkyScan atomic clock -model 86742 I need to know how to change the clock to eastern time.


Hello

The SkyScan ATOMIC Clock

With the Skyscan Atomic Clock, you have the most accurate timepiece within the continent. It can receive the time signal transmitted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), which is regulated by 3 atomic clocks and deviates less than 1 second within 3,000 years. The NIST broadcasts the time signal (WWVB, 60kHz) continuously from Fort Collins, Colorado. This signal can be received anywhere in the continental USA that long wave (AM) radio reception is possible with a portable radio. It is expected that the signal can cover a distance of over 2,000 miles from the transmitter. Therefore, your clock will receive the signal within the broadcast range anywhere an AM signal can be received; generally the signal cannot be picked up in massive metal and concrete structures unless near a window. In addition, some environmental effects (see next page) may affect the transmitting distance.

After changing batteries in both the outside sensor and the inside clock I no longer receive a reading for outside temp.


I have a thermometer with an outside sensor. It's necessary to remove both batteries, wait a few minutes, then replace batteries - sensor first. It may take a few minutes for the inside clock to pick up the signal. If it doesn't, try again with new batteries.

Cant fix the time zone


Successful reception of the time-synchronization radio signal is indicated by a radio waves icon to the right of seconds in the upper section of the display. After synchronization occurs, you can select your continental U.S. time zone (EST, CST, MST, or PST) by means of a switch on the back of the clock.

I just changed the batteries on my Skyscan Anavoo U Model 87700 clock and it has the wrong date and time. I even tried different batteries and it still will not work.

The best reception is at night and may take a few days to sink up.

Set the time on my skyscan atomic clock mo 8672


The clock will set itself at specific time set times, this is likely to be at 0200 0400 and 0600.
You will however be required to set the time zone, the switch is likely to be on the back.
INFO:
Atomic Time Synchronisation:
How does it work.
SHORT VERSION:
Radio set clocks and watches receive a 60-kilohertz, radio signal from the NIST the official timekeeper for the US and is located in Boulder, Colorado. Ft. Collins. they use atomic clocks and transmits this official time via high frequency short-wave and low frequency AM radio signals, satellite transmission, Internet, and via telephone.

Skyscan atomic clock receives time signal but is displaying GMT rather than EST.. how do I get it to display EST?


You didn't tell us the model number but whatever it is, you should find instructions here:
Skyscan website
Our various 'atomic' clocks have either a menu that lets one select or a simple slide switch with US time zones from which to choose.

S10Scan atomic clock model 87310 time is 4;pm should be 10:am


Hi

Time zone setting
Language Setting
The weekdays can be displayed in LCD1 with the pre-set languages: US English, French and Spanish.
1. Set the desired language for the weekday display in LCD 2 by use of the + key.
2. Press the SET key to enter the mode “Manual Time Setting”.
Manual Time Setting
In case the Skyscan Atomic Clock is not able to detect the WWVB-signal (disturbances, transmitting distance, etc.), the time can be manually set. The clock will then work as a normal Quartz clock.
Note:
In 12 hours mode the time will be displayed with an additional “PM” for the time from 12:00 noon until 11:59.
1. The hour digits will start flashing on LCD1. Set the desired hours by pressing the +key followed by pressing the SET key.
2. Now the minute digits will start flashing. Set the desired minutes by pressing the +key . If the + key is held, the units will increase by 5.
3. Press the SET key to move to the “Year Setting”.
Note:
The unit will still try and receive the signal every day despite it being manually set. When it does receive the signal, it will change the manually set time into the received time. During reception attempts the WWVB tower icon will flash. If reception has been unsuccessful, then the WWVB tower icon will not appear but reception will still be attempted the following hour.
WWVB time reception takes place from 12:00 am through 6:00 am each day (attempts WWVB reception every full hour within this time frame). When the time signal is received for example at 1:00 am, the Skyscan Atomic Clock will not attempt to receive the WWVB signal for the remaining hours until 6:00 am. Therefore, the next signal attempt will take place between 12:00 am and 6:00 am the next day. The other times WWVB reception takes place, are upon setup and after manual time set exiting mode. Reception is generally not possible during daylight hours due to the interference of the sun.
