Re: Time and Temperature Projection problem

Mine's done this before as well.

I usually have to unplug the power from the back of it for a second and plug it back in. I've found no reason why this happens though.

Make sure you have the backup batteries in it when you unplug it.

My Hammacher Schlemmer Projection Alarm Clock and Weather Monitor will not project the outside temp. It only projects the inside temp. How do I change? Also, can't change the time zone.

No solution but to return it...very annoying product but yet I like the projected display, very sharp and bright. The replacement was much better, it loses connection with outside transmitter often..but occasionally we see the outside temp

Can not change time zone on sharper image model lm521 projection clock

I got to liking the Sharper Image LM521 Digital Clock so much that I finally took the time to figure out how to manually set it-it was that or toss it! The instructions are as follows:
AFTER installing fresh batteries, or removing and reinstalling the batteries:
Successively pressing the "SET" button results in steps 1.) to 11.) below, each of which describes the particular/specific LM521 clock function you you can manually set.
HOWEVER, pressing the "SET" button after the clock had been previous set and running, will start the manual clock settings from step "2.)," "SET Offset Hours..." To start from step 1.), remove and reinstall the batteries.

Sharper Image LM521 Digital Clock

After inserting the batteries:
The whole LCD screen lights up showing the different settings, etc.
After several seconds, the LCD screen clears and displays:
A flashing antenna
Upper left hand side of the LCD display. USA Time Zone Map
Middle right side of the LCD display (if necessary, to see, remove and reinsert batteries).
A flashing antenna
> This indicates the clock is trying to auto set the time according to the WWVB radio/satellite time signal. Set on windowsill for best chance of success.
If it can't detect the signal, mannual setting is required, starting with the time zone.
> Manually set time ONLY if you are absolutely certain the WWVB signal cannot be found. Otherwise any manual time setting will be auto set to the WWVB time when its signal is detected, which may be many hours later.

SET USA Time Zone
1.) Press "SET" -- US time zone
> press "MODE" repeatedly until the desired time zone is reached.
5 = Eastern standard time (default setting)
6 = Central standard time
7 = Mountain standard time
8 = Pacific standard time
9 = Alaskan standard time

SET Offset Hours to Compensate for Satellite Signal
2.) After step 1.) above, press "SET"
A flashing "-7h" (minus 7 hours, default) and flashing USA Time Zone map appear.
This default setting worked just fine in New Mexico, MST, and may also work for your time zone as well.
> Press "MODE" to set from "-0" to "-12h" (minus 0 to 12 hours).
> Set to "-0h" if the satellite time signal set your clock to the correct time for the US time zone you live in.
> Set from "-1h" to "-12" to offset the time set by the satellite signal in case it does not match the time in your time zone. (E.g., 3pm -1h = 2pm.)
> NOTE: The default setting is -7h. If the satellite signal resets the time, say to 9pm, the time displayed will be 2pm (9pm-7h)--but if it should display 5pm instead to match your time zone, then set offset to -4h. Hence, the need to correctly set the offset hours if the -7h default value does not work for you.

SET Daylight Savings Time (DST)
3.) Press "SET" -- DST (Daylight Savings Time)
> Press "MODE" to set ON/OFF

SET Time
4.) Press "SET" (5no = seconds)
"5no" displays, plus flashing bars for seconds (not minutes as it falsely seems).
> Press "MODE" to set from 0 to 60 seconds
5.) Press "SET" (set hours)
> hour bars flash > press "MODE" to set hours
6.) Press "SET" (set minutes)
> minute bars flash > press "MODE" to set minutes

SET Date
7.) Press "SET"
> press "MODE" set year
8.) Press "SET"
> press "MODE" set month
9.) Press "SET"
> press "MODE" set day
SET Week Day
10.) Press "SET"
> press "MODE" set week day, Mom through Sun (Mo is default)

SET Standard (12) / Military (24) Time
11.) Press "SET"
> Press "MODE" set 12/24


SET/ROTATE Ceiling Projected Time/Temp Position
12.) Repeatedly press button with four tiny arrows pointing opposite each other (rightside of "DSPL" button) until the Time/Temperature display on the ceiling is oriented how you want it.

SET Ceiling Projection Brightness, or turn off
13.) Pressing button with sun symbol (leftside of "DSPL" button) cycles ceiling display from off, to brightness levels 1, 2, and 3.

SELECT between Ceiling Projected Time, Temp or Both
14.) Pressing "DISPL" repeatedly cycles between M0 (time), M1 (temperature), M2 (time & temperature auto switch every second or so).

Remote signal not received by Shift 3 projection alarm clock

1) Does the remote have batteries? See other posts that describe how to do this (4 screws in back need to be removed). Temperature should be displayed in small window of the sending unit if it's working.
2) Hold Channel button for 3 seconds until it beeps - the unit then searches for a signal.

Shift 3 projection alarm clock cannot connect with the remote

Did you put two AAA batteries in the remote? Use a small phillips to take the cover off of it. Then hold channel on the main unit for three seconds to synch it with the remote.
