    cannot reset DST to the correct time...

  • Susan Johnson Mar 26, 2012

    To set the Dream Machine by Sony Model ICF-C414 ... just hold down the button marked "time" for 2 or 3 seconds, then the Time Zone will say 7.. but I just ignore that and press the time button to get to the day and month and press the button again for time... be sure to set it to am or pm... and just press the time button again it will beep twice and you're done... (be sure to double check Daylight savings time, there's a button for that..) The clock should set itself if the batteries and everything are good...

Press and hold down the clock button until it beeps. The first numbers to come up are the years last two digits, use the -+ buttons to adjust if necessary. Press the clock button once quickly and it brings up two more sets of numbers, these are the month and day. Adjust if necessary then press the clock button once quickly. The next thing that comes up is the time. It is now adjustable with the -+ buttons. The time doesn't flash or anything to tell you that you can set it but you can! Then press the clock button once more to save the time.

Do not allow more than 60 seconds to go by or you will have to start over.

    Thanks. Electrician changed circuit board / fuse box for the whole house today, and I returned home to find all the numbers blinking at "12:00". Yikes. Lost the manual yolks ago and have to set alarm for morning, but a real pain to have to subtract time-now from real-time future desired alarm time, then add those hours and minutes to 12:00 AM, and repeat process every day until I can set the clock to my wristwatch time. Two questions: (1) You said that after the date is set, one can set the time, and "the time doesn't flash or anything to tell you that you can set it but you can!" When I followed your directions, the numbers Did Flash, so I touched clock button once more, thinking I hadn't followed your suggestions, and the time did stop flashing; but then the + and - buttons did nothing, and the time was stuck at a non-flashing 12:00 AM. So I hit clock button again, pushed +until the time matched y watch, and then hit clock button again. Then all was well. It took longer than 60 seconds though, but sin I didn't start over again except to set time of day, maybe the month and day are no longer set correctly. (2) I didn't know before tonight the clock allowed you to set month and day and year; but why does it matter to me -- or matter to the clock's functions -- that the clock "knows" what the current date is? When the clock is set, the face plate doesn't read out the date, like my watch does. What am I failing to grasp?

    OMG - thank you, thank you, thank you. I use it as my alarm clock and somehow unplugged it and was pulling out my hair trying to figur out how to reset the time. Thank you for your simple, easy to follow instructions!

Hi!

DST is daylight saving time. When Daylight Savings Time changes take place in the spring and fall each year, there is no need to adjust the clock because the built-in calendar recognizes the dates and automatically makes the proper time adjustments.

For more details and how to adjust these settings see the manual from the link below--

THE SYSTEM IS CONNECTED DIRECTLY INTO THE RECEIVER THAN INTO THE MONITOR. AS FAR AS I KNOW IT IS NOT CONNECTED TO MY INTERNET.


one thing that you can do is turn on the auto login feature if the screen goes blank or the login session times out. I am not aware of any reason why the system would time out. The auto login setting will log you in in the event your screen goes blank.

Unplug the unit from ac power. Remove the battery. Wait a minute. Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds. (Yes, I know, nothing will happen visible). Replace battery. Plug unit back in. Now try the power button and see if the unit resets. Sometimes this helps when all else fails especially with a computer which has "hung up" like yours. Let me know if this worked!

My ipod is just playing without the sound carrying through to the speakers. I dont know how to make it work?


Verify there is nothing plugged into the headset port, including headsets, headphones, or adapters.
Original iPhone only: While on the Home screen, adjust the volume buttons. If you see the icon below, indicating that headphones are attached, there may be debris in the headset port:



To remove debris in the headset port, try connecting a pair of headphones to the headset port and then remove the headphones. Repeat this several times.
If you have paired with a Bluetooth headset that is nearby, either use the headset or turn Bluetooth off (choose Settings > General > Bluetooth).
If that doesn't work, try restarting the iPhone. Hold the Sleep/Wake button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the Sleep/Wake button to turn it back on.
If restarting the iPhone doesn't resolve the issue, try restoring the device.

Your radio should have come with a receiver of some sort for the radio signals to set itself. I had this same issue with my clock when the battery in the receiver died ... try replacing this too. It took me forever to figure out what it was because I had forgotten that it had its own radio receiver ... then once I remembered it existed, I had to find it, but replacing the battery fixed the problem. Hope that helps :-)
