This should help. When the hourglass symbol stays on, press and hold down the start button for at least 15 seconds. The screen should clear and then you can navigate back to the correct opening screen and select music, videos, photos etc. as you require.

Can you maually adjust the hour hand on the la crosse WT-3161BL IT'S SLIGHTY OFF

Unfortunately the only way I know of synchronizing the hands is to remove the glass. I am assuming your clock has a plastic glass which is held in by 3 knibs which protrude into the case.
Examine the edge of the glass and locate one of the knibs, with a small screwdriver gently but firmly push this knib in and pull the glass up to release it. Once out you can position all the hands at exactly 12 o'clock by pushing them gently (don't take them off). Replace the glass and your done!

Washing machine won't drain. What does the hour glass symbol mean. It is defined in the owner's manual

From <!-943087853!1669102353!1442424460210&from_osc=&homeid=2217>: "The hour glass is displayed to let you know the washer's timer is counting down. This is normal, and does not require service."

Copier is locked up with hour glass symbol on screen

Hi info77200,

Unfortunately the hour glass symbol remaining on the screen is indicative of a firmware failure.
Unless you're a real wizard and know how to reload the firmware, you'll need the support of an onsite engineer.

Hourglass Shape

If there is a hour glass shape to the image but convergence is normal, there are 2 possibilities. You either have a pincushion correction problem or if the hour glass seems to be moving, it will be an open filter capacitor in the power supply.

Unless you are electronically inclined troubleshooting this issue will require a factory trained service technician. You can expect to spend $300-$400 to fix this.

The screen flickers into hour-glass figure.

It's the tube going out. You need to replace it. If you want to stay with CRT monitors, you should be able to pickup a used one for around $10.00 on Craigslist.
