Re: S10Scan atomic clock model 87310 time is 4;pm...
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 theSETkey 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 theSETkey. 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 theSETkey 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.

You're not supposed to set the time -- it's supposed to synchronize with the US atomic clock broadcast automatically. Perhaps putting it in a different area of the house, or turning it to a different orientation will help it make the initial connection.
If it still won't, here are instructions from one of the LaCrosse models... use them or go to http://www.lacrossetechnology.com/clocks/atomic-digital/wall/
and find your particular clock, then download the instructions.
MANUAL TIME SETTING
In case the 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.
2. Set the desired hours by pressing and releasing the + key followed by pressing the SET key.
3. Now the minute digits will start flashing.
4. Set the desired minutes by pressing and releasing the + key . If the + key is held, the units will increase by 5.
5. Press and release the SET key to move to the "Year Setting".
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 next hour.
WWVB reception occurs daily at 12:00 am and 06:00 am. If the reception is not successful at 12:00 am, then the next reception takes place the next hour and so on until 06:00am, or until the reception is successful. If the reception is not successful at 06:00 am, then the next attempt will take place the next day at 12:00 am.
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.
CLOCK/CALENDAR SETTING Note: The date must be set in system programming (10-01). To set the system Time: 1. Press the Speaker key. 2. Dial 728. 3. Dial two digits for the hour (24 hour clock, 13 = 1:00 PM). 4. Dial two digits for the minutes (00~59). 5. Press Speaker to hang up.
This is more of a Clarification than a solution. I've determined that the SS-5000 is not recognizing the changes to DST that happened in 2007.
From 1986 to 2006 this was the first Sunday in April to the last Sunday
in October, but starting in 2007, it is observed from the second Sunday
in March to the first Sunday in November, adding about a month to
daylight saving time.
So in March the clock is still trying to keep the "earler" time and in November it's trying to keep the 'later' time.
I'm contacting HomeMedics Support to see if there's a resolution.
Each time you press the set button on the back it selects one of the items that you can set. For example if the "month" is selected by pressing the "set" button then press the "+" key to change it from 1->2->3->4 etc. Each time you press "+" key the month will go up by one. Stop when you reach the correct month. You can do the same for each item including the time zone and daylight savings time and whether you want your temperature to be in Celcius or Farenheit. Hope this helps...
