if just time is off by one to three hour(s) , you need to ck your time zone settings , if the day is off by one day you need to wait 24hrs keeping watch in a good view of the sky (not locked in a metal box) it should auto correct itself to proper day when it receives the radio signal for two time cycles (24hrs)
Resetting: 1. Remove batteries from both the outdoor transmitter and the Temperature station. 2. Wait at least 30 seconds and then repeat the procedures specified in Setting up (above). Note: Always wait at least 30 seconds after removing the batteries before reinserting, otherwise start up and transmission problems may occur. Also, remember when insertting, that both units have to reset and to always reinsert the batteries to the transmitter first
Insert the batteries into the clock and verify that the clock's display is functioning.
Set the correct time-zone and Daylight Saving Time (DST) switches. The switches are on the back of the clock. Select EST if you are in Eastern Standard Time, CST if you are in Central Standard Time, MST if you are in Mountain Standard Time, or PST if you are in Pacific Standard Time. The DST selector should be set to "off" or "on" depending on the laws of your state.
Wait 15 minutes. The clock should synchronize automatically.
Set the clock manually using the buttons on the back panel if the clock does not catch the radio signal within the first 15 minutes. Push the correct button to advance the month/day/year on the calendar; use the MODE button to set the hour and minute.
The clock should adjust itself within 48 hours to match the atomic signal. Verify that the clock is receiving the signal by checking the front display. You should see the image of a tower with circular lines at its top.
You don't. Just make sure that the rear switches are set for the correct time zone, and that the DST switch is set to the ON position (unless you're in an area that does not use Daylight Saving Time). Make sure that your batteries are fresh, and situate the clock so that the front (or back) is facing roughly in the direction of Ft. Collins, Colorado. Give it a couple of hours to find and sync with the time signal, and it will set itself.
Make sure that the clock is set for the correct time zone and that the DST (Daylight Saving Time) function is ON. Also, although not mentioned in the manuals, these clocks will typically jump and hour ahead or behind when the batteries get weak. Replace your batteries if they are more than a year old.
The EXSV10 Atomic Talking Watch by On-Time sets itself to the official time standard of the United States government, maintaining split second accuracy. It can also literally "tell" you the time. It talks! The On-Time talking atomic watch also has daily alarm capability, and can be set to announce the time every hour.
Use the four numbers on the back of your watch and you will have a PDF version of your instruction manual.
This is more of a Clarification than a solution. I've determined that the SS-5000 is not recognizing the changes to DST that happened in 2007.
From 1986 to 2006 this was the first Sunday in April to the last Sunday
in October, but starting in 2007, it is observed from the second Sunday
in March to the first Sunday in November, adding about a month to
daylight saving time.
So in March the clock is still trying to keep the "earler" time and in November it's trying to keep the 'later' time.
I'm contacting HomeMedics Support to see if there's a resolution.
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.
