Replace the CMOS battery with a new one, and get yourself an un-interruptable power supply to handle the power outages.

Power interruption and now my plug,n go seems to be frozen. Cannot set time or clear anything. Screen reads 9.80 or something close


I had a similar problem with my Bosch wall oven after a recent power outage-restart-outage-restart cycle that lasted only about thirty seconds altogether. The difference would be in that while I could reset all the things like day, date, time, etc., the oven would arbitrarily go off on its own and make up the day, time, date, year, etc., with no apparent correspondance to reality. Here's what I did: I completely shut down the oven at its outside breaker (you will need to do whatever it takes to remove the power from the 'plug-n-go'). I waited five or ten minutes before turning the power back on and resetting the various items. Two days have passed and there have been no more mind-of-its-own excursions into another time zone. Problem solved, unless/until another power outage cycle comes along. Hope this helps, or at least gives you an idea about where to start.

Wall scoreboard clock model #0028 not working after outlet blew


Remove several screws around perimeter of clock. Open up clock and find small (quarter -sized) battery. Remove this battery - it may be hot glued in place but you need to remove this. You don't have to replace it just remove it. Apparently this battery is used when you have a power outage to retain date / time, but when it goes dead it won't allow the clock to operate. So just remove it and put the clock back together and all should be fine except you will have to reset the date etcetera when you have a power outage.

Does anyone know how to reset the "change Oil soon" sensor, and the "check tire pressure" sensor on a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix GT?


Turn the key ahead to run mode, without cranking and push gas pedal to floor and back up 3 times within 5 sec, this should reset the oil change light. as for the tire pressure light there are a couple of procedures, but ensure first that the pressures are all above 28 psi, and are the same. however, without the use of a tpms tool to communicate with the tire monitor sensors it may not reset. did you have any tires changed over, or rotated? if so the use of the tpms tool is much easier to reset the light. Probably better off bringing to a tire or mechanical shop that deals with it regularly. It is actually not that difficult, but the tool will allow you to tell if a sensor is faulty, or has a weak battery, etc.. hope this helps

How do i reset my cordless phone after a power outage


Most cordless phones can be simply reset by taking it out of the base and removing the battery. Put it back in after a minute. Note that you may lose your contacts on your phone when you reset it using this procedure.

Date resets back to 2001 after being powered off


Try changing the time and date in the BIOS and then save the changes and exit. Then turn the computer off.

Wait a few minutes then turn the computer back on and if the date resets back to 2001 then that means the battery on the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced cause that means the BIOS isn't keeping information in memory.

The battery you would need is a cr2032 battery. Here is an enlarged image of the battery Im talking about:

Date & Time loss with Exilim EX-S600


Good Morning :


Hope that you are wellJ

This is the response from Casio:

"The date and time will reset and the setting will need to be readjusted. The camera does not have a separate battery for the clock. The date and time will reset whenever the camera is not supplied power by the battery and USB cradle for about 24 hours."

Sounds a bit messy to me.

If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.

And, remember; always include the type of Operating System and the type of computer you own, when you submit your questions. It simply makes for much faster solutions.

Have a wonderful morning.

Wrong date on the radio.


RESETTING THE CLOCK AFTER A TOTAL MEMORY LOSS

If you do not change the built in lithium battery within a reasonable period of time after you see the ‘flashing’ LOW BATT. warning indicator, the lithium battery may become exhausted and will no longer be able to supply back up power to the SmartSet internal computer.

If the unit is disconnected from the AC outlet after the battery is exhausted, or if a power interruption occurs, the SmartSet memory will be lost and the clock will need to be reset when the power is restored. Be sure to install a fresh lithium battery before you reset the clock, otherwise the clock will need to be reset each time the power is interrupted.

If the lithium battery is exhausted and you experience an interruption in the AC power supply, the clock will reset itself to its initial default setting when the power is restored.

The initial default setting is “12:00 AM, Saturday, January 1
(1 1), 2005”.

If you notice that the time on your SmartSet clock radio is completely incorrect, and the day indicator is also wrong, press the MONTH/DATE button to see the date. If the date display is showing “1 1” (January 1 ), you probably experienced
a total memory loss. To reset the clock after a total memory loss, proceed as follows:

1.) Install a new CR2430 lithium battery in the battery compartment.

2.) Connect the radio to your AC outlet and let the clock set itself.

3.) Depress the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons together. The display will change from ‘time’ to ‘year’. While holding the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons, press the UP button to
set the display to the correct year, then release the buttons.

4.) Depress the MONTH/DATE button. The display will change from ‘time’ to 'month/date’ (mm/dd). While holding the MONTH/DATE button, press the UP button to set the display
to the correct month and date. The Day indicator will change automatically as you adjust the month/date settings. When the correct month and date appear on the display, release the buttons.

5.) Depress the TIME button and the UP button to set the display to the correct time. Be sure to confirm that you have set the time correctly to ‘AM’ or ‘PM’ by observing the AM indicator.

6.) After you set the time, reconfirm that the Day, and Month/Date displays are still correct. Make final adjustments if necessary.

The SmartSet clock memory is now reset and the new lithium battery will maintain it for the next 5 to 8 years, depending on the number and duration of the power outages you experience.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
After resetting the clock, don’t forget to reset your wake up times, and alarm mode settings, and sleep timer settings as well.
