Centrios Atomic Desk Clock/Temperature

The Centrios Atomic Desk Clock has the 4 time zones shown for North America & at the moment, it is set to Pacific time zone. I have tried every combination on the back of the clock to change the time zone to Eastern - but have failed to do so. The Cetrios clock has a diplay for time,day,date year & temperature & you can change the time via satelite. I have set the clock to a different time than currant one, & bypushing receive button on the back, the time will correct itself - but to Pacific time. Therefore, the clock is 3 hours behind us.Adjustments on the back are from left to right-mode,set,adjust,receive & snooze(clock can also be used for an alarm clock.On the back of the clock is the namr - CENTRIOS & the cat No.is631-6006. THe description says it is a desktop clock with indoor thermometer. Clock is made in china for ORBYX electronics. It says that CENTRIOS is a trademark of ORBYX ELECTRONICS. Many thanks in advance for looking at problem. Fred Borgman

    I have followed the instructions in the booklet and still can not get the time on the indoor clock set to stay on DST, we live in Alberta, and are on DST, but when I set the clock to DST, it stays for about half an hour and then decides to jump ahead either two or three hours. What am I doing wrong?

    My e-mail is loisrichards1@shaw.ca or phone (403)948-7731. We have had the clock for two years now, all I did was change the batteries on both the clock and the temperature transmitter, I have all the rest of the settings done, it's just the time setting that I'm having a problem with. Thanks

Here is how you adjust the time zone:
1.) push MODE till "AL" appears after the minute.
2.) tap "SET" (tap means push but do not hold) and time zone will advance.

3.) THE TRICK: The Time Zone can only be set in the Alarm Mode. Make sure you so not push and hold "SET" until the hour flashes as you would to set the alarm time. You just go into Alarm Mode and tap "SET" to advance the Time Zone by one zone per tap. When the Time Zone is where you want it, tap MODE to return to the clock and set the correct time.

I found a PDF manual for this clock at:

http://www.orbyxelectronics.com/manuals.asp

You can't turn DST on/off, but you can set the time manually. Silly for a "self-setting" clock, no?

I have a centrios clock that has an alarm, tells the time and temperature. I need the manual for it


So you worked out you need to specify a make :-)

Try these instructions or post to this forum. If you provide a model number for the clock which should be underneath it or at the back, I will try to find the specific model. They seem to make a few models. Post as a comment to this posting rather than starting a new one. Thanks

How do i set a radio controlled clock seth thomas hd 1688


  • Place your Seth Thomas atomic clock face-down on a table or desk and locate a series of buttons labeled "PST," "MST," "CST" and "EST" on the back of the clock. Press the appropriate button to set the time zone.

  • 2

    Turn your attention to the small lithium battery-powered digital clock display on the back of your clock. With the correct time zone set, the digital display should accurately reflect the current local time.

  • 3

    Locate the AA battery compartment on the back of your clock. Put two new AA batteries into your clock's battery compartment.

  • 4

    Set the "Mode" switch on the back of your Seth Thomas atomic clock to "Run." Wait for it to adjust to the correct time. The automatic time-adjustment process can take up to 45 minutes, but is usually completed much sooner.

    Want to set the clock


    Each time you press the set button on the back it selects one of the items that you can set. For example if the "month" is selected by pressing the "set" button then press the "+" key to change it from 1->2->3->4 etc. Each time you press "+" key the month will go up by one. Stop when you reach the correct month. You can do the same for each item including the time zone and daylight savings time and whether you want your temperature to be in Celcius or Farenheit. Hope this helps...
