SOURCE: I can't get my atomic wall clock to set on daylite La cross wall

The easiest way to reset it would be to change it to Eastern time - that will give you the correct Central DST.

SOURCE: Second hand has stopped working.

Hello
Just setup the clock once again by replacing the battery and check. If this also does not help you, the the press fitting of the second is loose. you have to open it to make it pressed firm.


To set up your clock simply install one fresh AA, LR6 ALKALINE battery. Due to the nature of long wave radio signals it is normally not possible to receive a signal during the day so it is best to install the battery late in the evening. Select your time zone by pressing one of the four time zone buttons PT-Pacific Time, MT-Mountain Time, CT-Central Time, ET-Eastern Time. The time zone buttons may be pressed any time after installing the batteries. If multiple buttons are pressed the clock will set to the time zone selected last. If no time zone is selected the clock will default to Pacific Time. Another time zone can be selected during or after the clock has set itself. Your clock can only set itself to one of the four time zones stated above. For time zones outside of PT, MT, CT or ET you must manually set the time using the Manual Time set button on the back of the movement.
When the battery is installed the second hand will advance eight seconds (two seconds per step x four steps). The clock is now searching for a signal. For the initial setting it is recommended to stand the clock in an upright position near a window. Within five minutes the clock will either receive the WWVB signal and set itself to the exact time, or it will determine that the signal is not receivable at its current location and time of day. If a signal is not receivable it will fast-forward the hands to the 4, 8, or 12 o'clock position and search for WWVB each

hour until a signal is received. If the time is manually set the clock will continue to periodically search for a signal and automatically reset the hands when the signal is received.
Select a location to 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. The WWVB time signal will easily penetrate Masonry and wood framed buildings. WWVB will penetrate almost every residential building and most steel buildings if they have adequate windows. It is not possible, however, for WWVB to penetrate most indoor shopping malls and rooms in the center of large office buildings that do not have windows. In buildings that WWVB cannot penetrate you may set the time using the manual time set button. When the clock is exposed to the WWVB signal it will automatically set the hands to the exact time.
OK.

... I'm not familliar with your particular clock, but, I'm assuming you may have a;
BATTery operated, wall-hanging, 'self-syncronizing' clock with 'hands' on it.
These are often marketed as 'Atomic' Clocks that 'keep perfect time - all the time'.
Generally these work by 'accuratizing' the Minute-hand as it approaches the 'top-of-the-hour' position (e.g. the 60th. or the zero- minute marker at '12'. They often achieve this by either 'double-Clocking' or 'half-clocking' (doublespeed or halfspeeding) the electric pulse that makes the 'SECONDs' hand advance to it's next mark. These 'SynCHRONO-ize' to a low-frequency Amplitude-Modulated (AM) radio-wave signal, (perhaps near 430Khz?) emminating from a source near "The Atomic Clock" out in Colorado (I believe).

One that I used to have hanging had recommended something like the following:

-manually adjust the time (via the small grey wheel near the BATTery, but set it about 7 to 12 minutes 'early' or before the actual correct time, (preferably at about 10 min. before an Hour).
-then remove the one " double A" . . .
... battery (for about 30sec.) and reinstall battery.
-then hang it up, and watch for the second-hand to do its 'Double-clocking' (for part of it's revolutions ) as the Minute-hand apprpaches th '12'. {note; it may take ~2 or 3 hour-cycles for the minute-hand 'to catch-up on all it's "Lost" minutes}.
(then, hopefully, your model will stay 'synchonized' there, for that 'Hour's' setting, and accept It (DST Hour value) with accuratizing Minutes. (and not go crazey over the next few days trying to get back to "Real TIME"). /mm

How can I set the time?


Once you select the time zone and whether you are observing DST, the clock sets automatically. That's the point of having an atomic clock.

I have a WT-8005U digital wall clock. Bought 5/27/14. It will advance the hour by 2 hours or will advance the day by a day. What do I do to keep this from happening?


I do not have the same clock, but I assume the atomic receiver is the same. I found my clock went berserk if it was anywhere near anything else electronic. I had it on a dresser that was sharing space with my wireless printer. Once I relocated the printer, the clock went back to normal. You may have a different issue, but maybe check that nothing is around that would cause interference.

Radio controlled Barolo Clock with hands keeps resetting an hour behind.


It sounds like it is receiving a DST signal instead of an MSF signal or vice versa depending on your country, they are one hour apart.
Unless this clock has a choice of signal settings the best way is to gently remove and reset the hour hand to the correct hour.

By moving the clock back one hour you changed from DST to standard time, not as you stated. Some clocks require you to rotate the hands clockwise to set the time back. Your clock may have been damaged beyond repair.

take the batteries back out and leave them out for at least 2 minutes. next put the batteries back in and put the clock near a wall or window so that the back of the clock faces colorado (where the WMV transmitter is),. It will most likely take all night for it to set properly, just after you put in the battery make sure that you have set your time zone on the back of the clock and if there is DST button press that too. just be patient, it will set itself. worse comes to worse you can set it by hand, but kind of defeats the purpose of having an "atomic clock". by the way the reason they call it "atomic" is becausee WMV's clock is tracking the decay of the Seisum atom, or some such bs.

Cannot get my atomic clock to reset to proper time


Make sure that it has fresh batteries, set it for the correct time zone, set the DST switch to ON (unless your time zone does not use DST), then place the clock on a solid surface, outside if possible, so that the face of the clock is pointed roughly towards Fort Collins, Colorado. It should reset in a couple of hours - or less.

Have a sky scan atomic clock model 86715. it does not adjust when we have the time change. What can I do to correct the time.


If this model has a DST switch on the back, make sure that it's turned ON. If there's no DST switch you can force a manual change by changing the time zone setting, but you'll need to do that twice a year. Also note that if the clock is more than two years old, turning the DST switch ON will make the clock conform to the old DST changeover dates.

Need instructions on 'programming' my Sharp SPC900 Atomic Clock. It has lost sync with the satellite and didn't automatically catch up with DST.


I don't know about your atomic sync problem. But here is how you can set the time zone:

Push the Time button once. This will change the Month/Day window to Alarm 1. Push the up button until the desired time zone is reached. Push the Time button twice more to return back to Month/Day display.
