Question about Proton Audio Players & Recorders
Selecting a Time Zone
1. Press the ATOMIC ON/OFF button (Fig. 3) to turn off the atomic time function.
To indicate you are at the off position, the atomic time icon (Fig. 2) will be removed from the display.
2. Toggle through the DST/TIME ZONE button (Fig. 3) until you reach your desired time zone. (P - Pacific Standard Time, M - Mountain Standard Time, C - Central Standard Time, E - Eastern Standard Time)
3. Once you have selected your time zone, press the ATOMIC ON/OFF button again to turn on the atomic time function. To indicate you are at the on position, the atomic time time icon will reappear with flashing antenna bands. (When the antenna bands appear flashing the unit is searching for the atomic time signal.)
4. If the atomic time icon disappears afterwards, the atomic time signal is not available at that moment. Try setting the unit in other locations. Remember to place the unit away from sources of interference such as mobile phones, appliances, TV etc.
5. The atomic time icon will appear on screen if the atomic time reception is successful. (The antenna bands will stop flashing when atomic time reception is successful.) The radio-controlled clock will have a daily synchronization at 1:00 am everyday. If previous attempts of reception were unsuccessful, the home receiver will attempt synchronization each hour until successful. Each reception cycle ranges from 2 - 10 minutes.
Manual Setting of Clock
1. Press the HOUR button (Fig 1) until you reach the correct hour.
2. Press the MIN button (Fig 1) until you reach the correct minute.
3. Press the BACKLIGHT HI/LOW/OFF button (Fig 3) to adjust the backlight intensity.
Note: A PM indicator will appear in the upper left hand corner of the LCD display during the PM hours. Be sure to set the time for the correct 12-hour period - AM (morning) or PM (evening).

The original is an incandescent 14V 30mA bulb. Hard to get. Much easier to substitute a Blue or Green 3V 30mA LED, in series with a 470ohm 1W carbon resistor, to reduce the 14V to 3V. The LED will last almost forever. Don't forget that an LED is polarity-sensitive, and must be connected appropriately Long-leg to RED, and Short-leg to BLACK.
