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.

We replaced the batteries on our SIO SCAN temp transmitter but it still will not register the outside temperature--what do I do?


Take the batteries out of the clock AND the temp transmitter. Wait about a minute, then replace the clock batteries. Wait another minute, then replace the transmitter batteries. Once the clock synchronizes with the satellite, you will need to set the time zone and whether you want DST on or off.

Atomic clock


There is a setting on the clock to turn on "DST"- daylight savings time feature. You have to push the set button on the back of the clock repeatedly until you see "DST" blinking. You should also see "OFF" blinking at that point indicating that the feature if turned off. If you now push "+" button on the back of the clock once it should show "ON" blinking instead of "OFF". Hope this helps.
