Which model Oregon Scientific do you have? There are a couple that you need to set the time zone with a switch on the back of the unit. For the BAR388HGA-BK, you press and hold Mode for 2 seconds until it goes into the setting mode. Then you can use the up/down arrows to cycle through the Time Zone options. (1 is Pacific, 4 is Mountain). Press Mode again to confirm the setting and advance to the next item to change. You will leave the Set mode if you do not press a button for several seconds. If you just press and release the Mode button, then you can set the time display option.
A number of Oregon Scientific product manuals are available here: Technical Support , http://www.oregonscientific.com/us/en/service/support . Scroll down and see the drop-down menu on the right.
A time zone is section of the country that adjusts for daylight savings time. The United States is composed of four time zones - Eastern,
Central, Mountain, and Pacific. Each county is assigned to one of the
four time zones. See the attached map to see which time zone you are in. Then you must set up your clock to match that time zone.
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 following is from a manual I found online. Step 1. and 2. worked to solve the same problem you're having for my sister-in-law. Hope it works for you too--good luck! JLC SETTING THE CLOCK AND CALENDAR CLOCK MANUALLY 1. Press and hold [MODE] button for 2 seconds. 2. Using the [UP]/[DOWN] button to scroll through the 4 U.S. time-zones (Pacific, Mountain, Central or Eastern) or non-U.S. cities. Press [MODE] to confirm. 3. If non-U.S. city is selected, the world time city will be flashing. Use [UP]/[DOWN] to select the city (for city names abbreviation, please refer to the section “Selecting the World Time”). Press [MODE] to confirm. 4. Repeat the same procedures to set the hours, minutes, year, month, day, language of day-of-week and hourly-chime on/off by using [UP]/[DOWN] button.
-Make sure clock is in radio sync mode. This is in the manual so won't repeat here. -Press & release SELECT. Clock time numbers should flash -Press & hold SELECT. It should enter clock settings mode -Bottom of screen next to moon phase you should see the current time zone. PST after reset -UP & DOWN will move through time zones. -Press & release SELECT when done. -Each time SELECT is pressed will move to a new setting like 12/24 hour etc. -Press SELECT until clock numbers stop blinking or leave it alone to return to normal mode -This should also work on the other Oregon Scientific Starck models.
The radio may not be able to get a strong enough or clear enough signal to process (night is best away from TV, computers and radios). To regain "control" of the clock, take the battery out, wait 30 seconds and then reinstall it. This will reset the clock. You can then manually set the clock.
Press SET for a few seconds until the hour starts flashing in the display. Then press the ADJUST button to set the hour. Press SET to move to the different functions (Hour -> Minutes -> Seconds-> Month -> Date -> Year) each time using the ADJUST button to correct the setting. Finally press MODE to exit the setting mode.
If the time zone is incorrect for your area (default is PST), press MODE to enter the Alarm Time Mode; then press SET to flip through the time zones; then press MODE again to exit.
The little "reset" is for use if the LCD display doesn't come on when the battery is changed. It doesn't affect any of the clock settings per se.
