Question about Oregon Scientific RM318PA Clock Radio

1 Answer

Clock lost 2 hours...

I came nastily close to oversleeping today! My RM318PA was telling me it was 0522 when it was 0722....and I have no idea why. The clock was exactly 2 hours slow, has never done this before, but it worried me as I depend on the clock to get me up
As it automatically adjusts to daylight saving etc, I have assumed this clock was infallable, but maybe not. Any gurus out there with any explanation for me?

    I missed my appointment this morning. During the night the clock reset itself backwards 3 hours. I live in EST. I am thinking this is because the clock self-adjusts to PST. How do you teach the clock that you are in EST? No description how to do so in the manual. I read through it carefully. Is the clock only reliable for those who live in PST?

It is probably picking up the wrong signal or your time zone is set wrong. Take out all of the batteries/ power connection etc. then leave it for a few minutes. Then put everything back in and see what it does. It should automatically reset to the right time. If not then try setting manually.

Mine faded away in two years, just out of the seller warranty! What a shame. I suspect they are investing in planned "destruction". I buogh a new LaCrosse (which as far as I can tell from the Weather stations) they have best technical quality and durability
