    I have tried unplugging the radio for many hours, taking out the batteries and still it flashes the wrong time. What do I do now?

    I have the same problem. I think it's a reception issue. I also cannot receive any AM stations in my apartment due to the metal in the windows.

Slide the switch with a lock, wake 1, wake 2 and clock to the clock position. Using the backwards and forwards buttons get time to the correct time. When correct time is reached, slide the switch to the lock position. Time will now be set.

How do I set time zone? S/N: 502 16764PH.


Setting The Time, The First Time IMPORTANT: The first time you connect your new SmartSet clock radio to the AC outlet the internal computer will automatically set the time correctly for the Eastern Time Zone, which is the initial default setting. The display will scan for a few seconds and then show the correct Day and Time in the Eastern zone. If you live in the Eastern Time zone, there's nothing else to do. Your clock is set correctly and running. If you do not live in the Eastern Time zone you must change the default zone display to your own zone. You only do this one time and the SmartSet will remember the new default zone setting and will always return to that setting after a power interruption. There are 7 time zones programmed into your SmartSet clock radio as follows: ZONE 1 - Atlantic Time ZONE 2 - Eastern Time (Default Setting) ZONE 3 - Central Time ZONE 4 - Mountain Time ZONE 5 - Pacific Time ZONE 6 - Yukon Time ZONE 7 To c h a n g e t h e d e f a u l t t i m e z o n e d i s p l a y, depress the TIME ZONE button.

How do I change the time on my TIMEX T307S clock?


Hello
To adjust time follow this.

Auto-Set Time and Date Settings

This model is equipped with the Auto-Set feature, meaning that the time and date have been programmed at the factory

and will already be set when you first plug the model in. Auto-Set will automatically adjust the time and date settings for

daylight-saving time and leap years. Auto-Set is programmed for Eastern Standard Time; if you do not live in this time zone,

you can easily switch the setting to one of six other time zones.

1. To change your time zone setting, press and hold the 8 Time Zone Button. The current Auto-Set Time Zone in the

lower-right-hand corner of the display will flash for approximately ten seconds, after which the display will revert to the

standard clock display.

2. While the Auto-Set Time Zone is flashing, press the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to select your time zone.

The display will show each zone's current time setting. There are seven zones to choose from:

Auto-Set Time Zones

Z-01 Atlantic Standard Time

Z-02 Eastern Standard Time

Z-03 Central Standard Time

Z-04 Mountain Standard Time

Z-05 Pacific Standard Time

Z-06 Alaskan Standard Time

Z-07 Hawaiian Standard Time

3. Find your time zone, then press the 4 Enter Button or wait about ten seconds for the clock to beep twice and the

setting to lock into place.

Manual Time and Date Settings

1. To change your time setting, press and hold the J Time Set Button so that the clock display begins flashing.

2. While the display flashes, press the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to set the time. Hold a button for a few

seconds to set the time rapidly. Be sure to set the correct AM/PM time, shown by the PM Indicator.

3. After setting the time, press the 4 Enter Button or wait about ten seconds for the clock to beep twice and the setting

to lock into place.

4. To change the calendar, press and hold the 9 Date/7-5-2 Button until the display shows the flashing year.

5. Press the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to set the current year. When you have selected the year, press the

4 Enter Button, then use the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to set the month/day.
6. After you have set the date, press the 4 Enter Button or wait for the display to beep twice and lock into place.

How do you manually reset a Lacrosse Atomic Clock. Ours is always 4 hours behind and has not caught up. We already changed the batteries.


There are many LaCrosse atomic clocks. Which model do you have? Support for most is available here: http://www.lacrossetechnology.com/support/home.php . Use the drop down menu to select the model.

For the analog clocks, there is a manual set button on the back of the clock. Press the button and wait for the clock to advance to the correct time. Then make sure the correct time zone button has been pushed. Then make sure the clock is in a location where it can hear the signal overnight. (For best results stand the clock upright in a window.)

For WT-2165U travel alarm, press and hold Set to enter the setting function. Then select the time zone (with + or -) then press and release Set. Set the DST setting to on or off as needed, then press and release Set again. The next setting option is the snooze alarm duration. Press and release Set again to change the hour manually (+ to increase). Press and release Set again to set the Minutes. Correct the date (year, month, day, day of week) similarly. Then set the display to 12 or 24 hour time. Press and release Set to finish and exit the set functions.

For some of the digital clocks you can set the time manually by pressing and holding Set. First set the time display mode (12/24), then press and release Set again. Then set the hours, followed by Set and then the minutes. Continue through other menu options or just do not press any buttons for several (30) seconds.

On the digital clocks, the item being changed will flash.

To avoid interference with the signal reception, place your radio controlled clock where it will be at least six feet away from a TV, computer, air conditioner or other household electrical appliances. The optimal location is near a window. Windows facing Colorado providing the best signal.

I hope this helps.

On the back of the clock - left hand side if you've laid it down on it's face - is a row of switches. You need to start the time set-up with the clock having been unplugged so there's no time set in the memory5.gif.
Now, to those switches: The first (from the left) is DST = Daylight Savings Time - right now you'de set this to "ON."
The second switch is Time Zone: PST, MST, CST, EST (Pacific, Mountain, Central, Eastern). Set the switch to the time zone you are in.
The third is just the brightness.

Now, to set the time itself:
1 - Turn the clock face back up to where you can see it.
2 - LOOK AT THE CLOCK - LOL! This is an atomically set clock - you shouldn't need to set the time. The atomic clock bounces off of satellites all around the world. There is literally little to no "dead zones" for the clock, so you should never have to set your clock - just set it up like I state at the beginning.

Good Luck!

Here is how you adjust the time zone:
1.) push MODE till "AL" appears after the minute.
2.) tap "SET" (tap means push but do not hold) and time zone will advance.

3.) THE TRICK: The Time Zone can only be set in the Alarm Mode. Make sure you so not push and hold "SET" until the hour flashes as you would to set the alarm time. You just go into Alarm Mode and tap "SET" to advance the Time Zone by one zone per tap. When the Time Zone is where you want it, tap MODE to return to the clock and set the correct time.
