You may need to move the clock to a different location in order to receive the signal, and you may even need to place it outside overnight to find the signal. This link will take you to the instructions for a similar model:

Build your own tic toc clock


You can try google but yellow pages may be better.

Search your yellow pages for clock repair or watch repair. Not many left but they exist. These guys don't always show up on google.

It wont start i think it is over wound


There is no such thing as an "overwound" spring driven clock. Your clock needs to be serviced. More than likely the old lubrication inside is congealed and the mainspring is sticking to it's self. Or... their is so much dirt and grime in the gears power from the spring is not being transferred to the balance wheel or pendulum. You will need to take your clock to a clock repair for cleaning and lubricating.
You Might luck out by taking the back cover off, locating the balance wheel, and give it a slight turn... it might start and run for a while. However even if this does work I strongly advise having the movement cleaned. Balance wheel clocks will start themselves If they are in good order. DO NOT try to slapshod repair a mechanical clock by dumping more oil on the movement as you can cause even more problems in the future. And WD-40 is NOT to be used on clocks.

I overwound my old travel alarm clock. Is there anyway to fix this on my own? I'm pretty handy with jewelers tools...


to unwind the clock, you need to open the winding spring.

Open the back, and there should be a part to move and unwind it.

Be careful to put the pieces in reverse order when you take it apart, so it will go together correctly I only say this because I've had to fix sewing machines that were not put together correctly..
