Clock setting not saving

I have just bought this camera but I cannot seem to get the clock to save. Every time i turn the camera on it asks me to set the clock. Sometimes the clock even resets when the camera is turned on. I am certain I am following the instructions correctly in setting the clock. This problem is very annoying as i do not want to have to return camera. I would be very grateful for any solutions somebody can give me...

This link will give you the user instruction manual for your camera; http://www2.panasonic.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/vProdSupportModel?displayTab=R&surfModel=DMC-FX8K&modelNo=DMC-FX8K&storeId=15001&catalogId=11017&itemId=94211&displayServiceCenter=false# Page 19 describes the clock setting procedure - first check that you are doing everything as described, especially the "press menu button 2 times after finishing the setting" If you still have no luck, then unfortunately there is a problem with the internal clock/settings battery/cell, which should normally charge from the main battery enough for 3 months - on this camera, the internal battery is not a user replaceable item, but your warranty should allow you to get it replaced free. Sorry if bad news, hope it helps :)

1) Plug clock in before making any adjustments.


2) If using on East Coast- Do nothing! Time and date are set to EST- Daylight Savings time is 'On". Clock is ready to use.


3) If using in time zones other than EST. Hold the clock with LCD facing you. Lean clock back and find small button on bottom right marked P-M-C-E. Hold for 2+ sec. LCD will blink the time zone. Press button again until LCD blinks the correct time zone, CST, MNT, PACIFIC.


4) Daylight Savings time- Default is always on. If you are in a zone that does not recognize daylight savings time. Hold the clock facing you, lean clock back and on bottom left is a small button marked D. Hold 2+ seconds and the LCD will blink ON. Press again and LCD will blink OFF. Daylight savings time is now OFF.


5) If power goes out, clock will retain time and alarm will sound if in the ON position.


6) Replace batteries once every year...!


7) If clock looses time or date:


a. Hold Volume +, and Tuner + at same time for 3 seconds

b. Clock face will blink year

c. Turn outer ring of alarm to set Year

d. Press Tuner + once, turn outer ring to set Month

e. Press Tuner + once, set Day

f. Press Tuner +, set Hour

g. Press Tuner +, set Min.

h. Press Tuner + to save all settings.


You must go through all set points to have them remain in memory. (have to run thru all a - h, can't set just Day or Hour/Min, etc. without starting with Year)

Tip

Setting time with your JVC VIDEO CAM.


Sometimes we are lazy enough to read our users manual, we want it easy and quicky. For this reason this is common issue to JVC camera users find hard on setting their camera's clock and calendar. Setting is easy but saving your setting is tricky. So set your camera's date and time the usual way and make sure to switch off your camera first completely and remove power(battery or ac adapter) to have your setting save. Next time it will not ask you to set again until internal clock battery expires.

I can not set the clock on my i river reader it keeps going back an hour after i set it help please


Do you have your PC set to automatically adjust for daylight savings? If so, try turning that off and setting your clock forward one hour manually. Although it seems that this would cause your clock to be one hour behind if the setting software isn't adjusting the clock setting for savings time.

You can automatically set the clock by turning “ON” the

When you want to set the auto clock function to “OFF”,

from the list.

Auto clock setting
Preparation:
You must connect the antenna or cable before connecting
the AC cord to the power source.
Wait 30 minutes with the power turned off, after the
antenna or cable is connected, for the auto clock
feature to activate.
After the clock is set automatically, you may have to set
the time zone and daylight saving time. (See page 26.)
Press STANDBY/ON to turn on the DVD/VCR after the
auto clock operation completed.
• When shipped from the factory, the “AUTO CLOCK”
option is set to “ON” position.
• If you turn the DVD/VCR on during auto clock
setting, the clock is not set.

is unsuccessful, select the PBS channel carrying
the XDS information, then turn the DVD/VCR off.
After 30 minutes, turn the DVD/VCR on.
• If the clock is not set automatically, set the clock
manually.


STANDARD TIME (Time zone)
In the rare event that you live within the broadcast range
of two stations in two different time zones, the DVD/VCR
may recognize the wrong station for the auto clock set.
To correct the situation:
Select “STANDARD TIME” and select the time zone from
the list below.
Selectable time zones and correction times
ATLANTIC: GMT – 4 hours
(GMT: Greenwich Mean Time)
EASTERN: GMT – 5 hours
CENTRAL: GMT – 6 hours

the clock may display another time zone. You can
correct the clock by selecting your time zone

manually, the time zone setting is not available.

SAVING TIME” and select “ON”, while to cancel the
daylight saving time, select “OFF”.

first Sunday in April you set it to “ON”, and on the
last Sunday in October you set it to “OFF”.
• When shipped from the factory, the “DAYLIGHT
SAVING TIME” option is set to “AUTOMATIC”.
• When the clock is not set, the daylight saving time
setting is not available.
• When there is no daylight saving time in your area,
always select “OFF”.

There is a solution for this already. You can reprogram the clock to use the new DST settings.

Sharp Atomic Clock Daylight Savings


I have misplaced the manual for my sharp Atomic clock, need to reset the time zone and shut off the alarm. How can I obtain a new manual?

Turning daylight saving time OFF


If DST is *already* set to "on" when you reset the time zone to Z-07 (Hawaii), my very recent experience is that the time *still gets adjusted back* by one hour.  Now that daylight savings time is over (at least according to the clock's pre-programmed and outdated schedule) I'm hoping that setting the time zone to Z-07 (Hawaii) will completely cancel the automatic time changes from now on.  Otherwise, I need to purchase another clock, and it won't be a Timex.
