Question about Zenith Z250B Clock Radio

Open Question

Y2K7 BUG (DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME)

My Zenith Z250 changes to and from DST on the wrong dates. Is there a way to change the date it changes? If not, is there a way to turn DST off completely so I can change it manually? The problem is when it does it automatically on the wrong date, it does so unexpectedly, and therefore does not get me up at the corret time on the day it changes. If it could be turned off, at least I would be expecting a time change on that day and react accordingly.

If you tip your clock over you will see three little buttons under. They are each labeled. Press/hold the one that says "clock" until your display blinks. Use the forward/back buttons on face of clock to re-set time, then press the little "clock" button underneath it again to keep the time you just set. It probably will beep.
When Congress's ideal day comes, re-set it the same way. Sorry, but all this will do is keep you from having to look at the wrong time for a few weeks straight.

We have 2 DZS400 digital tork timers. unfortumately when DST days were changed we have not been able to use the automated dst transition and must manually change the clocks twice each year. is there a way...


DZS400 product descriptor shows DST, and many other programming options:
1) This might help or not:
You can modify DST start & end times > Press MODE until dSt shows > Press MONTH, DATE, DAY to modify start times, and then press ENTER. (or press DEL and ENTER to delete) > Press MONTH, DAY, DATE to modify end times, and the press ENTER > press MODE to return to AUTO.

2) According to DZS400 product descriptor "The controller has 365 day holiday capabilities with 24 single dates" ... if above solution doesn't work, the 24 single dates might provide enough days to fill in programming gaps in the DST. Your manual should have programming steps.

Daylight savings time changes at wrong date on my brookstone 'smartset' alarm clock. (It changes at the old date, of course - so it is wrong 4 times a year...)


The DST schedule is hardwired into the older clocks and cannot be modified to run on the new schedule. If the clock has a DST switch, you can can turn it OFF and reset the clock only twice a year. On my old "ATOMIC" clock, I've set the DST function OFF, and I use the time zone switch for my adjustments. Sorry, but your only other choice is a new clock.

How do I disable the Daylight Savings Time function? the dates for DST have changed and the alarm is still set to the old date changes.


See the comments under Petewete. There is no way to disable it on the T301B model. Changing time zones doesn't help because all 7 zones observe DST, or at least they did before 2005. (Now Hawaii Zone 7 does not). I know because I tested all zones. The workaround is complicated: before each time change, pretend it is the old DST date (1st Sunday in April or last Sunday in October) by resetting your date. My spouse says to fix the problem by hitting the snooze button with a 20-pound sledge hammer.

I have 2 clocks (model 40009,40010)that have inaccurate time


I read the manual which said to depress the alarm button. That wasn't the right button but I found that depressing the button next to it, the DST button, that that fixed the problem.
Thanks.

Zenith Redi_set clock radio Z230S


Describe your problem: Depress MONTH/DATE and ALARM1 for 3 seconds and display will show DST 'start' month,week,and date.
Display will show 4F 4.1, alternately flashing

4F = April First week. 4.1 = April 1.That is the old dates for change. What we want to do is to change to the new dates. Once it is done, it will change in the new dates as it did on the
old dates..

Hold down the MONTH/DATE button for 5 seconds, and while pressing the - or down button3 times, until the display shows '3'F2.
3 is month F2 is the week.
=March 2nd week.
You have successfully change the March changeover.

Now for the November change.
Depress and hold MONTH/DATE and ALARM2 after 3 second the display will show DST 'end' month,week, and date.
First digit will be 10 =month. second digit will be L=Last week, and date, will flash alternately.
While holding down the MONTH/DATE press the + or UP button once the display will show 11 (November) and F (first week) and 1 as date alternately flashing.
You have successfully set it for the next 100 years

Need to change the time


You weren't precise if the change was due to Daylight Savings Time or just a general need to change the time so I'm giving you the complete set of instructions for changing the time

Setting the Time
Note: Use 24 hour and 60 minute format when setting the time.
For example: 2:00 pm = 14:00.
1. To make changes to your clock’s time setting, you must first put the clock into Program mode. See
section Accessing Program Mode to Update Calendar, Time and DST for instructions. When the
display flashes P1 dAtE, press the ◄ left button until P2 CL oc appears, then press the ● right
button.
2. Press the ◄ left button to choose 12-hour AM/PM display or 24-hour military time, then press the ●
right button.
3. Press the ◄ left button until the correct hour appears, then press the ● right button.
4. Press the ◄ left button until the correct minutes appear, then press the ● right button.
5. When the display flashes the correct time, press the ● right button.
6. The display flashes P2 CL oc again. To make changes to the DST start date or DST end date, press
the ◄ left button one time until P3 BDLE appears in the display and continue to How to Set the
Begin Date for DST. Otherwise, press the ◄ left button several times until END appears, and select
the ● right button to save your updated settings.
How to Disable DST
To disable Daylight Saving Time, set the DST beginning date equal to the ending date (i.e., DST begin
date = 08-03-09; DST end date = 08-03-09).
See next for details regarding setting the DST begin date and end date. Typically, clocks operating in
Arizona, Hawaii and Puerto Rico do not observe DST, and disabling the DST function typically applies to
those areas only.
By default, and unless otherwise modified, DST takes effect on the first Sunday in April and ends on the
last Sunday in October (this was the United States standard through 2006).
How to Set the Begin Date for DST
Note that in 2007 the standard for DST changes to a different start date and end date. The steps below
correct the change in the new start date for DST. The new start date and end date need only be changed
once, since the clock’s rolling calendar function auto-calculates the start date and end date for DST every
year thereafter.
Note that if the begin date for DST has passed, in addition to modifying the begin date (and end date),
you will also need to modify the time.
1. When the display flashes P1 dAtE (see earlier section Accessing Program Mode to Update
Calendar, Time and DST for instruction), press the ◄ left button until P3 bdLt appears, then press
the ● right button.
2. Press the ◄ left button until the correct year appears, then press the ● right button.
3. Press the ◄ left button until the correct month appears, then press the ● right button.
4. Press the ◄ left button until the correct date appears, then press the ● right button.
5. When the display flashes the correct year, month and date, press the ● right button.
6. When the display flashes P3 bdLt, press the ◄ left button once to select next menu option, P4
EdLt, which provides a way to set the end date of the Daylight Saving period.
Setting Daylight Savings Time for model PIX-10/15/21

How to Set the End Date for DST
Note that in 2007 the standard for DST changes to a different start date and end date. The steps below
correct the change in the new end date for DST. The new start date and end date need only be changed
once, since the clock’s rolling calendar function auto-calculates the start date and end date for DST every
year thereafter.
1. When the display flashes P4 EdLt (see conclusion of previous section How to Set the Begin Date
for DST for instruction), press the ● right button.
2. Press the ◄ left button until the correct year appears, then press the ● right button.
3. Press the ◄ left button until the correct month appears, then press the ● right button.
4. Press the ◄ left button until the correct date appears, then press the ● right button.
5. When the display flashes the correct year, month and date, press the ● right button.
6. The display flashes P4 EdLt again. Press the ◄ left button several times until END appears, and
select the ● right button to save your updated settings.
Note: To disable the Daylight Saving Setting, set the beginning and ending date to the same date.

Daylight Savings Times Changed


Directions for Resetting the Daylight Savings Time (DST) Start & End Dates on the Emerson Research Smartset Dual Alarm Clock Radio (cks5055s):
  • This should work for all Smartsets, but I cannot make the guarantee (and no, I don't have any other directions, sorry)!
  • Adjusting the DST Start Date on an Emerson Research Smartset:
    1. Depress & hold the MONTH/DATE and the ALARM1 buttons (at the same time). After 3 seconds the display will show the DST 'start' month, week, and date. It should be alternately showing "4 F" (April and first week week) and "4. 1".
    2. While still holding the MONT/DATE and the ALARM1 buttons, press the DOWN (or "-") button 3 times, until the display is showing "3" (March) and the week as "F2". It should alternately flash "3 F2" and "3. 11".
    3. After this is set, the clock should "automatically" reset itself
  • Adjusting the DST End Date on an Emerson Research Smartset:
    1. Depress & hold the MONTH/DATE and the ALARM2 buttons (at the same time). After 3 seconds the display will show the DST 'end' month, week, and date. It should be alternately showing "10 L" (October and last week week) and "10. 28".
    2. While still holding the MONT/DATE and the ALARM1 buttons, press the UP (or "+") button 1 time, until the display is showing "11" (November) and the week as "F". It should alternately flash "11 F" and "11. 4".
    3. After this is set, the clock should "automatically" reset itself
One thing to note, if you ever have to change the lithium backup battery for the Smartset clocks, it will revert back to it's factory defaults and you'll have to go through his all over again.
