Not picking up signal

After the time change I realized my Oregon Atomic clock model # RMR606HGPA is no longer receiving a radio signal. I've unpluged it and taken out the batteries and I still have to set the time manualy, is there a way to make it set automaticly instead of manualy?

Are you getting a signal? The disp Ay should show that it is picking up radio time signal on the display. If not, reposition to a totally different location. If still no signal, receiver must be off. May be warranty issue.

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.

I got a new Sangean clock radio R22. Te atomic clock doesn't pick up the time and I can't get it to set manually either. It reads ony L 0 on the right side. I have the part that receives set in a window....


I just had the same problem which you find posted here on FixYa.com. The problem solved itself overnight for me. I left the RCR-22 unit plugged in and searching for the signal when I woke up the next morning the time was set and the Atomic signal indicator was solid instead of flashing. It has kept perfect time since then. My only issue is that setting the alarm clock-radio is complicated.

My oregon scientific indoor outdoor weather station with atomic clock just stopped picking up the outdoor readings, it won't switch to that channel any longer. tried removing and reinstalling the battery,...


I had the same problem, Since the outside temp wouldn't read, I figured it was the outside unit batteries. Went through half a dozen AAA batteries and wouldn't read. It was the indoor unit. Had the same bats I installed 3 years ago. DUH! Replaced the AAA, and all was well. When the inside batteries die out, it has just enough juice to read indoor temp, but not enought to sense exterior signal.

Oregon Scientific Model 323a--Atomic clock...the atomic clock keeps setting itself to one hour behind what time it actually is in my time zone...I mannually re-set the clock to the correct time...but when...


Make sure that the clock is set for the correct time zone and that the DST (Daylight Saving Time) function is ON. Also, although not mentioned in the manuals, these clocks will typically jump and hour ahead or behind when the batteries get weak. Replace your batteries if they are more than a year old.

How do i make the atomic clock work on my wireless thermometer?


The main clock need to be located close to a window.

Although the signals often pass through the walls of a house, they can also be blocked by the metal in the walls.

Also if the clock is located close to your tv or computer, the signal may be blocked.

Good Luck!

I have a radio Shack Atomic Wall Clock 63-1438 and the time didn't change on Oct 31, 2009. Should it automatically change of do I have to reset the clock?


Most atomic clocks simply receive the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) time signal. They do not all allow for daylight savings time changes as not all areas use it.

You will have to adjust manually.

Changing the time


you can go to http://www2.oregonscientific.com/assets/manuals2/bar338pa.pdf to see or print the user's manual.

If you don't want to get the manual, here's what you do to fix it. . . . .
*note: you need to do this anytime you change the batteries.

1) open the battery cover
2) on the left side you'll see 3 little buttons labeled a)zone, b)C/F c)reset
3) push the reset
4)push the zone button until your time zone is highlighted on the front display
5) look at the front display & if you see a blinking "radio signal" icon at upper left of time numerals
don't do anything else. The time, date, etc. will automatically synchronize your clock with the US Atomic Clock. This could take up to 10 minutes. As long as the "radio signal" icon is blinking, it's working on it. When the icon doesnt' blink, it's set. Cool, huh?
6) if the area you live in can't receive the signal from the Atomic Clock, instead of a blinking "radio signal", you'll see just a bare antennae. Since you probably set your clock manually, that's what it shows now before you do anything.
7) after you push reset & set the time zone do NOT touch any other buttons to set anything!!! (I know it's difficult to leave things alone, but just sit on your hands). Pushing the "clock" button or the up & down arrows will stop the radio signal & change to manual functions. Look at the signal icon mentioned in 5) and 6) above. If you only have the bare antennae icon. . . . . go ahead & set the time/date yourself. You have no signal.

Enjoy your clock!

Atomic clock reception


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.
