My 86742 batteries took a dump after many years so I ended up with the same problem. It took me about an hour to figure it out, but here is the solution:

1) Pull the batteries and replace them, or gently insert a straightened paper clip into the "reset" hole in the back of the clock. The clock will beep.

2) Press the "receive" button" so the clock sets itself. The default time zone will be "EA".

3) Press the "adjust" button untill the time zone is showing (rather than the day-of-the-week).

4) Press and HOLD the "set" button down untill the hours digits start to flash.

5) Now press the "set" button again six times. The time zone characters will flash.

6) Press the "adjust" button untill your time zone appears.

7) Press the "mode" button to return the clock to normal operation.

8) Press the "adjust" button to display the day-of-week.

Do you think they could have made it any MORE complicated?

I couldn't find your exact model, but here is a link to the manual for the Skyscan 86722. Hopefully the instructions for setting the time zone will be close enough to help solve your problem.

Is it a GPS or Vacuum cleaner ?

Not west coast. it is perhaps pointing to russia or japan.
depends on the model and firmware and of course the setting

Time zone setting on Medion atomic clock


Re: Median MD10954 time zone setting.
Press the MODE button but do not hold it in.
repeatedly pressing the MODE button will alternately display the DAY OF THE WEEK or the SECONDS next to the time.
With the DAY OF THE WEEK displayed, press and hold the UP button for up to 5 seconds. Each 5 second press of the UP button will move the time zone by one.
When finished, you may press the MODE once again to revert to SECONDS display.
Good luck,

Set the clock


The D3 is set automatically to West Coast (PST) Time. Only when you reset the D3 can you change the time. Hit the reset button and you'll start setting up the settings. It will bring you to the clock feature. Depending on where you are in the country you will need to hit the [+] button one click for each time zone east (i.e. East Coast (EST) is three clicks). Then you need to hit the "Summer Time" button becasue of Daylight Savings Time.
As for the Phone Book I don't use that feature so can't help you there

I recently had a problem similar to this when I went to Thailand. While in Thailand I changed my phone settings to not sync with the local towers so I could maintain a certain time. then when I returned home 30 days later, I forgot what I did to fix it. The solution was to go to Start, Settings, then scroll through More until you get to the Phone Settings Program. then choose F for clock and time zone. Change the setting from Automatic to Manual, or vice-versa if that will solve your problem. Then go to Start, Settings, More until you get to Regional Settings and make sure they are set how you want them. If that does not work, you need to contact your local provider for assistance on how they automatially set your time and date. Always remember to remove the battery and replace it to reset the phone just in case that helps. Good luck.
