The easiest way to reset it would be to change it to Eastern time - that will give you the correct Central DST.

SOURCE: How do you manually reset a Lacrosse Atomic Clock.

There are many LaCrosse atomic clocks. Which model do you have? Support for most is available here: http://www.lacrossetechnology.com/support/home.php . Use the drop down menu to select the model.

For the analog clocks, there is a manual set button on the back of the clock. Press the button and wait for the clock to advance to the correct time. Then make sure the correct time zone button has been pushed. Then make sure the clock is in a location where it can hear the signal overnight. (For best results stand the clock upright in a window.)

For WT-2165U travel alarm, press and hold Set to enter the setting function. Then select the time zone (with + or -) then press and release Set. Set the DST setting to on or off as needed, then press and release Set again. The next setting option is the snooze alarm duration. Press and release Set again to change the hour manually (+ to increase). Press and release Set again to set the Minutes. Correct the date (year, month, day, day of week) similarly. Then set the display to 12 or 24 hour time. Press and release Set to finish and exit the set functions.

For some of the digital clocks you can set the time manually by pressing and holding Set. First set the time display mode (12/24), then press and release Set again. Then set the hours, followed by Set and then the minutes. Continue through other menu options or just do not press any buttons for several (30) seconds.

On the digital clocks, the item being changed will flash.

To avoid interference with the signal reception, place your radio controlled clock where it will be at least six feet away from a TV, computer, air conditioner or other household electrical appliances. The optimal location is near a window. Windows facing Colorado providing the best signal.

I hope this helps.

How do I change from military to 12 hour format on the time display of the Sharp Atomic Weather Station SPC1003


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

Instructions
    • 1 Insert the batteries into the clock and verify that the clock's display is functioning.
    • 2 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.
    • 3 Wait 15 minutes. The clock should synchronize automatically.
    • 4 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.
    • 5 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.

How do I set my lacrosse clock ws8055u


Press and hold Set (the top button on the right hand side of the clock) for 2+ seconds to enter the Programming mode. If the unit hasn't been set before "-5EST" should start flashing. Press + (the second button from the top) until the correct time zone is displayed. Press Set to save the setting and advance to the next program option. Again use the + button to set DST on or off. Press Set again to save and advance to the language choice (for the displayed day of the week). Press + to go through the choices and then press Set. Repeat the above steps to set the hour (if the clock didn't get the correct time from the WWVB radio). Note: PM will be displayed for the afternoon hours. There is no indicator for AM hours. Press Set again to save and advance to the Minute setting. Pressing Set again will bring the unit to set the Year, then advance to Month, then Date. The next press of the Set button will advance to setting the day of the week. The next items to set are the 12/24 hour time display and the units for the temperature.

If you press Snooze, on the top of the clock, or do not press a button within 15 seconds, the clock will exit the Programming Mode. LaCrosse has the manual for the WS-8055U on the product page: http://lacrossetechnology.com/8055/ . The direct link to the manual is http://lacrossetechnology.com/8055/manual.pdf . Make sure to replace the 2 AA batteries and position the clock where the radio signal is strong if the clock doesn't maintain the correct time.

I hope this helps.

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.

Hold down the "buzzer", "radio" or "sound" buttons until you hear a beep and one of those words is blinking. then, use the arrow keys to go up and down by minute and only by minute (which means you are going to have to wait awhile if you want to change the time to many hours ahead or behind). When you get to the time you want, press enter.
