You will need to try some combination of the set button and time button to change the time back to normal time. Try hold both the time and set button for a period of 5-10 seconds and see if this will cycle the time to normal. If not try hold the set button alone for 5-10 seconds and see if this works. If not try holding the time time button for 5-10 seconds and see if that works. If none of the fixes work. Call Emerson customer support at this telephone number 1-800-898-9020 between the hours of 9am-5pm CT. Tell them the make and model number of your Clock/Radio and ask them for assistance with your problem of resetting the time back to normal from military time. They will be able to help you. I hope this information helps you solve your problem.

Cloc gains time


well without the make and model number I can only answer generally , most clock radios use the power line to sync the time base (60 hertz=60 seconds = 1 minute=60 minutes=1 hour) , but they use a internal time base generator when running on battery back-up (that's not so accurate) , I had one some time back that a customer plugged into a switched outlet (unknown to them) in there room and it did exactly the same thing it gained about seven minutes every day , me id check the outlet its plugged into to see if its on all the time (a quick test 4 this is to remove battery back up ) clock will then flash to be reset if you come back later to see it when the power was shut off

How to set time


Most radios have a button for setting the time, button for hours and then one for minutes. Try checking the clock for buttons that have labels for these.

You often have to hold down one and press the other to change hours and minutes respectively.

Alternatively, if it only has two buttons. Holding one should start cycling through the hours and/or minutes.

If this doesn't help, please post a picture of the clock or the make and model of it.

Thanks!

My clock is gaining time that is it is gaining about 10 minuts a day. what do I need to do


well if that is an electronic clock this problem might be because of the fact that these clocks use electronic timing circuit which consists of capacitors and resistors which are used to maintain a constant current flow to the timing circuit and if this RC(resistor, Capacitor) combination has some issues the circuit will not function exactly it is meant for and you will either get gain or loss of minutes.

so it is best to see if you can figure it out or just switch the clock.

Can my alarm clock be changed to automatically change for the new day light savings times? I have one clock and I bought one just like mine for my mother.

After a power outage, my clock no longer has right time


You need to reset the microprocessor in the Clock/Radio. to do this you must unplug the Clock/ Radio and remove the battery. Let the Clock/Radio set for at least 1 hour to discharge the microprocessor. You can then reinsert the battery and plug in the Clock/Radio. The functions should return to normal. If you are still having a problem, try changing the battery (CR2430) and letting the Clock/Radio set unplugged for a longer period of time. If all this fails, you can call Emerson customer support at this telephone number 1-800-898-9020 between the hours of 7am-5pm CT and ask them for assistance. I hope this information help you with your problem.

Clock is losing time


This is a problem with either the a/c power or the Clock/Radio's internal timing crystal circuitry. The radio depends on the 60 cycle power source as the timing device. If this power is irregular or uneven in its delivery it can cause the timing circuits to lose or gain time. The Clock/Radio has a frequency tuned crystal that operates like the second hand on a clock. When the calibration for whatever reason is lost the crystal will not be able to perform the timing function correctly. The reason this does not happen in all Clock/Radios is that they usually have correction circuits. These circuits keep the crystal from drifting out of calibration during operation. Because of the low production cost of these Clock/Radios, the quality control is almost non existent. The components are variable and sometimes they do not stay within specifications. This problem is usually handled by quality control departments in the manufacturers facilities. They usually test a certain amount of the production run to make sure it meets specification. In higher priced electronics these test are on going during the production run. In lower cost electronics these tests for quality control are usually done before the production run. This is to choose the best and most reliable components for the price level of the product in production. What this means to you, is that the quality of the components and quality control of the production runs are based on cost efficiency to the manufacturer. This is the reason for these type of efficiency variables in the products. The customer support telephone number for Emerson is 1-800-898-9020 between the hours of 9am-5pm CT. Give them the make and model number of the Clock/Radio and ask them for assistance with your problem. I hope this information helps you under the problem and reason these problems can occur in the products. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day.
