Question about Sony RDR-GX300 DVD Recorder

Open Question

It seems that the calendar days have been mixed up. It thinks today's Saturday when it's Tuesday. I set the date and time on the setup but can't check the initial setup date and time.

SOURCE: Initial Set up image

I am having this same problem. It seemed to clear up on its own at first, but it has since returned. It seems to occur most often after the TV has been on for a couple of hours. I contacted Sony Tech cupport and they recommend having the set serviced. I haven't yet, since it seemed to "fix itself," but now that the issue has resurfaced I'm likely to take it in unless someone has a suggestion as to what is causing it, and how to resolve it.

SOURCE: Help, I PSP stuck on initial setup screen

Your X button may be bad. The X button is the button that confirms these changes. If you press X and nothing happens, it may be broken.

Try removing the battery and putting it back in. If this does not help, chances are, your X button is no longer functional.

You can send the PSP back to Sony to have it fixed, they charge like $89 or you can send it to a company like the following which charges around $30 to fix something like that:

How make the hour(time )setting


Both the time and the date are set via the winding stem. To set the date, pull out the stem to the first "click" and than turn it and watch as the numbers change. To set the time, pull out to the second "click" and then turn to set the time. Some watches have a screw-down stem crown. If yours does, simply unscrew it by rotating in a counter-clockwise direction until it releases and pops out slightly.

If your watch has a day calendar function it is important to not attempt to set the hour or change the date if the current reading is between 10 PM and 2 AM. If you do, there may be some damage to the advance function responsible for moving the calendar.

The easiest way to set the time and day is to advance the date to the day before the current one. Then pull out the stem and advance the hours until the date clicks over. That is midnight and as long as the current time isn't between 10 PM and 2 AM, you're good to go.

The day inscription is two days late, monday, watch says saturday


So to change the Day and Date of your Watch, slowly pull the Stem out... (Do note that if you have a Waterproof Watch, you'll need to unscrew the Stem counter-clockwise, which is towards you, until it unlocks, then you can pull the Stem out!) But this is where you need to go slow. If you pull it out slowly you should hear one snap. (It stops on the first notch) If you pull the Stem out all the way, it snaps twice and ends up on the second notch. (See picture below) The second notch, or all the way out, is where the Stem needs to be to set the Time.
day-changed.gif But the first notch, or first snap, is the secret and the key to setting the Day and Date! In the first notch position, you'll see that if you spin the Crown one way, it will change the Day. Spin it in the opposite direction and it changes the Date!
Do keep in mind that you may have to spin the Day and Date a couple rotations because it most likely will alternate between English and Spanish. Just pick the correct Language for you and it's done! When the Day and Date are set, push the Stem in all the way and enjoy your Watch!
If you still have the problem with your Watch changing Dates at Noon instead of Midnight, that just means you're on the wrong 12 hr cycle. (It's set for Twelve at Night instead of Twelve at Noon) All you need to do is pull the Stem all the way out, (second notch) and Spin the Minute and Hour hands ahead 12 hours. If it's Twelve O'Clock, spin it ahead until it's Twelve O'Clock again. Doing that will put the Watch on the correct 12 hour cycle.

How does its year calendar work?


The day at a glance calendar system used in this Orient watch, has been used in a number of watches over the past 40 years, perhaps most famously in the Wittnauer "2000" watch (which Orient actually made for Wittnauer under contract). Orient itself has used this system in a number of different styles of watches. Note that the daily date window is separate from the day of the week / month at a glance system; the date window is driven in traditional fashion by the movement.

The day/month at a glance system is based on a single disc inside the watch that is manually advanced by the user. If you look at the top of the watch, where the months are listed, you'll see little two-digit numbers. These represent different years--"04" refers to 2004, "11" to 2011, etc. To get the right days of the week at the bottom of the dial, you move the appropriate year under the current month. That will line up the days of the week--Monday, Tuesday, etc.--with their correct dates. You may see the same year repeated more than once on the upper part of the dial because the calendar has a specific pattern that can be replicated.

On older watches using this same system, the top pusher was used to adjust the date window, and a separate winding knob controlled movement of the year/monthly calendar disc. On this specific watch, which I have not handled in person, I cannot see a separate crown to adjust the date, and so I am guessing that you would pull out the set stem part-way to engage the disk setting mode. This would make sense because unlike the date window, where the date is always advanced, the year must move both backwards and forwards to align with all the months in a given year--you'll see that January and October are in the same place on the dial, for example.


If you're interested, here's an example of a vintage Orient that uses this same system for its calendar. Note how the monthly calendar and year/month alignment are flipped from the watch you asked about. Please note that I have no connection with this web site, make no endorsement as to the price being asked for this watch--but it has a nice picture of a classic Orient:

http://forums.watchuseek.com/f30/$128-all-steel-orient-perpetual-calendar-xl-case-vintage-watch-526811.html

On a final note, you'll see a number of people refer to these as "perpetual calendar" watches. That's not accurate. The year / days of the week disc holds about 20 years of calendar information. After that, the disc is no longer accurate, though you can easily keep aligning the monthly calendar just be referring to a printed calendar and adjusting it that way. For a period of time (not sure if they still do it), Orient would accept older watches with this system and change out the old year/day wheel with a new one that went further into the future.

I plugged in my Emerson Smartset Clock Radio (model CKS2005) and the date is off by a couple. Today is August 4, Thursday, and it states August 7, Saturday. How do I change the date? The date button is...


You have to run the clock back. Press Time/Date and then press up or down after you run it 24 hours the date will change, and the date will move day to day.

Date setting on Citizen 0510 chronograph


Try this method. Set the date until it reads a couple of days in the past and then set the correct time. Of course do not touch your date or time settings between the hours of 9PM-1AM. Wait until the next day, then move the hour hand forward until you reach the current date with the correct time.
