I have lost the instructions for this thermometer/clock. Acurite 00592W. When I changed the batteries I was unable to reset the time zone to EST. The default is PST.
Can you help?

Re: Can't set time zone

Try pressing and holding the -CF for three seconds then press it again. The P (Pacific Time) appears, press it again and the M (Mountain time) appears, etc.

Clock is 2 hours ahead of actual cst time

If you have an atomic clock/watch that is not showing the right time, you could have one or two separate problems. First, the clock may not be set for the correct time zone. Second, the clock may have a manual switch to adjust the time for daylight savings time. Each of these problems can make your clock display the incorrect hour of the time, especially after you change the batteries and your clock "forgets" some or all of its prior settings.
Check the back of your clock to see if there is a button or switch to set the correct time zone. If your clock appears to be set to your time zone, change the switch to another time zone and see whether the clock moves forward/backward to adjust. Once it has finished adjusting to the new time zone, adjust the clock back to your time zone to see whether it will now correctly reset to display the time.
I have seen atomic clocks that have manual adjustments for these settings as well as ones that adjust automatically other than the time zone. If you provide the manufacturer and model number of your clock, we should be able to provide more detailed instructions.

How do change the date on my citizen divers watch


Hope this will helped you fixing the time of your Citezen divers watch. Just foolow the instruction below.

Change your Citizen watch's time zone without actually moving the clock hands. On the digital display, change the city that displays on the watch, which sets the time to the different time zone. The Citizen also has a calendar, timer, chronograph and LED lights. Since it is an Eco Drive watch, it is solar powered so you never have to replace the batteries unless its backup power source dies.
Difficulty: Easy Instructions

  1. Pull the setting knob (crown) out one "tick" for setting mode.

  2. Set the mode hand to "WT-S."

  3. Pull the crown out one more "tick."

  4. Press the top button on the right side of the watch for the city setting mode.

  5. Press the lower button on the right side to "SET" the city.

  6. Turn the crown to select a different city, which changes the time zone.

  7. Push the crown all the way back in to finish setting the time.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Silicon scientific atomic projection clock did no reset for daylight saving. Help

I have one of these, and look for the manual on the 'Net every time DST changes, and eventually figure it out. Here's how: (1) Hold down the ALM/SET button until you get past the alarm setting and you see 24H or 12H. (2) Step through the settings by pushing the ALM/SET button, changing each as desired by pressing the +/CYCLE button. Eventually you'll wind up with the time zone indication flashing (it's really tiny, and appears just below the time indication). Press the +/CYCLE until you get to the desired time zone. (3) After the screen quits flashing, press the -/DST button to get the desired setting. I hope this helps, and that I can find this post again next time change!

I live in Eastern Time Zone. My atomic clock shows map of USA in top right hand corner and it is set in Western Time Zone. How do I reset to Eastern Time Zone? I have had atomic clock for several years. I...

The "mode" button is there to change the function of the + & - buttons.

If you press the mode button several times you will cycle through the various setting features of the clock.

Look for the one that sets the time zone and use the + or - buttons to select your zone.

Some experimentation may be required!

Setting the time

Dear Sir,

It appears that the watch was malfunctioning which I thought was due to a change of battery being required.
(It was running slow and giving the wrong time - so my mother told me)

I subsequently found instructions for the watch on an internet site, changed the battery and the watch is still failing to set to the U.K. time zone therefore, I deduce that it is a failure in the watch rather than the need for a new battery or ranything I have or have not done.

Please delete my question from your system

Thank you.
