Question about Home
I have TWO different quartz wall clocks (just simple round ones, about a foot or so in diameter), and they both worked fine for years. Now, I've got them both in my new classroom (I'm a teacher and I've just moved to South Carolina from Nashville, TN), and BOTH are acting flaky. They both seem to run fast, but not exactly the same, and it seems to vary. Any tips on how to fix this? (Obviously, I've tried replacing batteries, but this doesn't work.) I'd appreciate any help!
On the front of one, it says ''Ingraham USA'' with Takame USA on the little box on the back where you put the single AA battery; the other is just says ''China'' (in addition to ''Quartz'') on the front, and something about ''unadjusted'' and ''Made in China'' on the little box on the back where you put the battery.
I don't think either one was extraordinarily expensive, but one (the China one) has sentimental value and I'd love to get it fixed!
Thanks in advance...

alarm clocks works on frequency and not only on voltage.if it is original 110v 60htz and you trying with 220v 50htz supply then it wont work correctly

I wish I had a solution... I'm in the exact same situation. I put in new batteries, and all I get is a faint reading of gibberish from the LCD screen, and that's it. I've tried following the instructions, but I can't set the time in the LCD clock, since it's unreadable, and almost completely gone. Seththomas.com has a web page indicating that "they will be back with info", but no support or FAQ pages. Disappointing... I have three of these clocks, and they are all behaving the same way.
