Remove the battery and replace with a new one. Just because.
Depress the tab on the back of the clock mechanism firmly (it pushes in a button beneath it) 22 times. While you're pressing the tab, the hands will begin to rotate. They will stop at 12 , 4 or 8 o'clock.

Place the clock in a window where it will be able to receive the radio signal.

Next morning the clock should have re-set to U.S. Pacific time. Press the on the clock mechanism that corresponds to your time zone and you should now have the correct time again.

How do I set my pod 535 watch after I have changed the batteries


Just tried this procedure to replace a watch battery in a POD 535 and did not work...my version of the watch might be different, all I am saying is it did not work with my watch.
The procedure that worked with my watch
When you have replaced the battery reset the watch by placing a small screw driver across the two recessed contact next to the lower battery clip. The digital display will reset and you will see four zero's flashing...if not press the winder button once, or reset the watch again. This process is to get all the hands at twelve O clock position...press and hold the top right hand button and the hands will start revolving...you can let go of the button once the hand are moving. Pressing the top button again will stop the hands and a short press will move the hands in small increments. Once the hands get close to 12 press then press the button once and then press the same button in short pulses to align all the hands on the 12 position. Wait a short time and the watch will find the time signal and both the digital display and hands will be aligned and showing the correct time.

The date and time are changing by themselves


I had the problem with locking on chrono function. Then I decide to replace battery, after replacement watches become crazy, hands were moving all the time, it was impossible to stop it. I remove the battery and leave watches on the table for 5-6 days, then install the battery again. No problem any more, all functions are available. May be you have the same kind of problem. Good luck!

Will the analog (hands) stop working on a Wave Ceptor when the battery is low/dead? Digital feature still works fine....watch about 4 years old


Yes, definitely analogue part will stop, because it takes more power to move gears and hands. Replace battery and you'll be OK. Rate me, plz.

RELACED WATCH BATTERY BUT WATCH STILL STOPS


The best place to take is a jewelery store or some place that can repair watches/replace batteries that has a cyclonic quartz watch tester b2164de.jpg A cyclonic can detect if there is a pulse (the electrical signal that makes the hands move) even if the hands don't move. It can also spin the gears/hands to unstick the gears if some debris is holding them up. If there is no signal the coil or something inside the watch may have been nicked or something else is wrong with the watch and may have to go to a watchmaker/repairer or replaced.

I heard a loud pop, then the vehicle wont move in any gear.It then grinds when I try to put it in park.


It sounds like you broke a Constant Velocity joint (CV Joint). The pop was probably the joint breaking. When you put it in gear it's just spinning. Think of one of your hands as the transmission. Hold a pencil that would be the CV Joint(s) and axle, and use the other hand to hold the other end of the pencil. That's the front hub (part that makes the wheel turn). So you have ...hand, pencil...hand = trans, axle... wheel. If you hold the pencil firmly with both hands, and spin the pencil with one, both hands still move.

If the pencil breaks...the one not spinning does nothing.

So...The transmission is trying to make the van go, but the cv joint is broken, so the wheels aren't spinning. When you put the van in park, the transmission doesn't know the vans not moving. Therefore it's making the same noise as if you put the van in park while driving. If you must start the van and put it in gear to see if the driver's or passenger's axle is just spinning. Shut the van off, wait a minute for the axle shaft to stop spinning, and then put it in park.

Guess Watch's stop watch is broken?


it's not broken.

let's call the top stopwatch button "a" and the bottom stopwatch button "b." eg, for normal stop watch function press "a" to start timing, press "a" to stop timing, and press "b" to reset.

to reset: press button "a" and "b" simultaneously and release (an easy way to do this is press and hold down "b" then press "a" and release both). this will send both hands spinning. next press "a" intermittently until the second-hand is back to it's desired reset location. then, likewise, press "b" intermittently until the minute hand is zeroed. now with both hands at the correct reset location, again press and release "a" and "b" simultaneously to save these resets and return the watch to normal function mode.

Hands on lacrosse atomic clock won't stop spinning.


remove everything to get to the hands, remove the top hands only leaving the one, carefully apply crazy glue (tiniest sliver) to the hand where it meets the shaft. Adjust that hand for one minute after the current time. wait about 15 seconds between each hand. Apply the others remembering to set the others to the exact time. let it dry and you should be done.

How to set time on my National Geographic Dakota Atomic Watch?


For the national geographic radio controled watch.
The easiest way to rest this watch is to remove the battery.
Once replaced the watch will flash set to 12. Push and hold the upper button till the hands spin. Press this button again to stop the hands. Tapping the upper button will make the hands move forword 1 sec. Set all the hands to 12. becareful, if you pass 12 you will have to go around again. to start the hands spinning again press and hold the upper button untill the hands move. Once all the hands are at 12, press the lower button and the screen should flas LON for london. Set the city code using the upper button to your area. press the lower button hard to confirm the information. The watch should set itself to the correct time. If it starts running from 12, place it on the window sill for the night so that it can get a signal.
