Question about Emerson CKA1000 Clock Radio

1 Answer

The display show's only time

When powered up, it asks for zone.  When selected, the display shows only bars.

From a previously discussed problem, ( it would always drop back to ask for zone)  I changed C554 with a 2200mf cap. Now only bars are displayed and they vary from one to if it's not receiving an rf signal....could that be the problem?  Or is it something else?

It is not getting a signal from WWVB, You might have pulled off the antenna wires when you replaced the cap.

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. The number "2" will appear on the display indicating that the default zone is ZONE 2, Eastern Time. Hold theTIMEZONE button and then press either the or buttons your own time zone appears on the display, then release the buttons. The clock display will change to the correct time in the time zone you selected . The clock will always return to the correct time in the zone you selected after every power interruption.

Toro Visiion Sprinkler Controller Troubleshooting

There are two Toro timer manuals posted:
Copy following links, for ez word search for each manual:

The timer can be reset to factory defaults by 'clearing program memory' following steps in manual.
Warranty period is 1 year protection against defects in workmanship, which is standard for timers from Woods to Intermatic to GE etc.

If the display is not working, and zone does not show, then that implies internal defect, or lack of power. Resetting timer might repair problem.
The timer has electro-magnetic relays, and not an internal solenoid.
The timer turns ON or turns OFF electric power to the water valves.
Water valves have solenoids that open and close when power from timer arrives at each zone.
The solenoid can make the sound you describe, but the timer relays with make small click sound as the electromagnetic relay opens and closes.

In addition to resetting timer to factory defaults, and then reprogramming you might try changing wires to different terminals.

Also the timer works on 24Volt AC transformer that plugs into outlet. It is possible to get display errors on timers when voltage is incorrect, or outlet and transformer are not connected well. Test outlet with circuit analyzer. Change outlet because outdoor outlets get corroded. Clean blades on transformer plug.

Power surge and other events can damage timers. Nearby lightning strike. Power outage causes surge when power resumes.

There is 24-hour backup battery, but the battery does not appear to be replaceable type and instead is rechargeable or capacitor type backup. So the battery is probably not the problem

How do i match the digi time with the hand time?

Some Renato anidigis are world timers tracking second times and time zones. On my Vulcan World timer for example, pressing the crown allows you to select and set a second city and time zone for the digital display while the analog dial continues to show the primary local time you entered when you did the initial setup. If you want both displays to show the same time, simply set the same city for both displays. To set the secondary digital display on mine, after pressing the crown, CITY would blink, and I would choose the same city and time zone again rather than let the indicator rest on a different one at random.

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

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.

IPhone sync with Outlook Calendar - Appointment time put on iPhone 1 hr later.

This solution pertains only to the one hour time difference people notice upon syncing to MS outlook.

In iPhone, there are two areas where you have an option to change your time settings.

1. When you go to 'settings', then to 'general', you can set up time and date, and also 12-24 hour format. Please note that changing the time here DOES NOT correct the problem, despite iPhone displaying correct date, time and time zone. Many people in this thread have stated that the problem persisted despite them setting appropriate time zone.

2. When you go to 'settings', then to 'mail, contacts and calendars' row (NOT the 'General' row) - you get an option to change your time zone at the very bottom of all the choices. You will see that wrong time zone is selected here - likely cause of the problem. Correct this choice and the one hour discrepancy between appointments in outlook and iPhone disappears.

Additional problem solutions - in the solution No. 2, if you set 'Time Zome Support' to 'ON', then all your appointments in the calendar will be displayed in the time zone of your HOME address. In other words, for example, if you are a person in central time zone, your appointments will be displayed ALWAYS in central time zone format - they will NOT change automatically when you travel from central time zone to eastern time zone. On the other hand, if you set the time zone support to 'OFF', then all your outlook appointment display times will change and adjust according to any time zone you travel to - This is often an inconvenience since most of us would like to remember our appointments as they were made in our home time zone, regardless of what time zone we traveled to.

Please note that the above solution pertains to only display of appoint times in outlook - This solution does NOT relate to the time displayed by iPhone and how that displayed time adjusts when you travel to different time zone away from your home time zone. This second issue is addressed below -

You can get your iPhone to display the current time in two ways -

1. Either always show the time in your home time zone, regardless of where you are (i.e., a person from Texas central time zone can set up to see the time always in central time, even if he/she travels to another time zone). This display setup is good for people who always think of time in their home time zone and then do mental conversions to reach at the local time zone time.

2. On the other hand, you can get iPhone to do this for you and change displayed clock time automatically to the local time zone that you have traveled to, away from your home time zone. Please note that enabling this capability in iPhone has no bearing on how the appointments are displayed in MS outlook.

Go to 'Settings'. Go to 'General' tab. then click on 'date and time'. Pick the 'set automatically' option to 'ON'. Now, the iPhone will automatically adjust displayed time to show the current time in which ever time zone you travel to.

If you set the 'set automatically' option to 'OFF', then you can select your home time zone. Then, the iPhone will always display time in your home city time zone and will NOT change even if you travel to a different time zone.

So, in summary, there are two places you need to adjust the time zones in iPhone - to do two separate tasks, first task of displaying appointments always in your home time zone upon syncing with outlook thereby avoiding the one hour skip; Second task of getting iPhone to display either your home time zone clock, or getting it to adjust current time to reflect the time in new time zone you travel to.

Hope this helps.
