Question about La Crosse Radio Controlled Atomic Clock

1 Answer

Resetting to daylight savings time.

My Lacrosse Atomic clock never resets itself to daylight savings time.
So I remove the battery, press the MT button for a while, let go, and the hands start spinning, stopping either at 12, at 4 or at 8. I repeat taking out the battery, wait a while, put the battery back in, press the MT button for 15 seconds, and sometimes it will reset itself then.
I bought the clock to avoid these actions. Any solutions?

The clock is searching for a strong enough radio signal from NIST station WWVB. When it can't lock on it, it gives up, moves the dial four hours, and goes to sleep to wait for better reception. Put the clock in a window facing towards Boulder, CO, overnight. (Radio propagation is better after dark.)

How do I reset my Atomic clock?


Hello Ruth Anderson,

Atomic clocks... the whole point is they are self aware
(where their hands are... by virtue of sensors on the dial)
and can self adjust...
by virtue of UNIVERSAL TIME BROADCAST.

Depending on the MAKE & MODEL, There are a couple of pieces of DATA needed from the owner

- Time zone (relative global zone from GMT)
- Daylight Savings (yes/no)

Some USA national clocks only show "PT, MT, CT & ET"
For Pacific through Eastern time zones... My point being...

Without make & model I cannot exactly tell you how to input (& save) your geographic data.

Hopefully with the information I have provided you can de-cypher it yourself...

You MOST LIKELY need to run through this "SET-UP"
EVERY TIME you change a battery.

Hope this helps!

How do I change from military to 12 hour format on the time display of the Sharp Atomic Weather Station SPC1003


Resetting: 1. Remove batteries from both the outdoor transmitter and the Temperature station. 2. Wait at least 30 seconds and then repeat the procedures specified in Setting up (above). Note: Always wait at least 30 seconds after removing the batteries before reinserting, otherwise start up and transmission problems may occur. Also, remember when insertting, that both units have to reset and to always reinsert the batteries to the transmitter first

Instructions
    • 1 Insert the batteries into the clock and verify that the clock's display is functioning.
    • 2 Set the correct time-zone and Daylight Saving Time (DST) switches. The switches are on the back of the clock. Select EST if you are in Eastern Standard Time, CST if you are in Central Standard Time, MST if you are in Mountain Standard Time, or PST if you are in Pacific Standard Time. The DST selector should be set to "off" or "on" depending on the laws of your state.
    • 3 Wait 15 minutes. The clock should synchronize automatically.
    • 4 Set the clock manually using the buttons on the back panel if the clock does not catch the radio signal within the first 15 minutes. Push the correct button to advance the month/day/year on the calendar; use the MODE button to set the hour and minute.
    • 5 The clock should adjust itself within 48 hours to match the atomic signal. Verify that the clock is receiving the signal by checking the front display. You should see the image of a tower with circular lines at its top.

I lost the instructions for the talking Reizen atomic clock and both of them are now an hour off. How do I reset the time?


You need to change the 'Zone' settings on both; the signal from Boulder, CO can't tell where you are, you have to make the correction locally and then they will track the signal accurately as long as they can receive it.

take the batteries out and leave them out for at least a minute. when you put the (new) battereis back in be sure that you have the correct time zone pushed and if there is a DST button or switch make sure that is pushed/set as well. place the clock with its back facing colorado and leave it overnight, it should reset itself ok.

Make sure that the clock is set for the correct time zone and that the DST (Daylight Saving Time) function is ON. Also, although not mentioned in the manuals, these clocks will typically jump and hour ahead or behind when the batteries get weak. Replace your batteries if they are more than a year old.

Atomic Clock Daylight Savings


Your clock may need to receive a signal indicating the time change. You can try moving it to another room, or outside to see if it reads the signal. Mine didn't, so I removed the battery and reset the clock. It wasn't obvious how to do that and I didn't save the owner's manual but upon close inspection there was a tiny black button (that looks like where you would lift a cover for a battery) and pressing it allowed me to adjust to the correct time. It is a "Sharp" bought at Target a couple of years ago.
