Have a new ULTRonic Global clock. Came in a box, well packed but apparently no setup instructions. Have been able to set the clock after much guess work. Temperature, Humidity and trend seem to work....

This is for Ultronic LCD clock/weather gadget.

keywords (from display)
Ultronic forecast week day humidity temperature trend comfort level
- DOWN = toggles F/C temp
- UP = toggles alarm
- MODE = selects date/time display
- hold down MODE to enter "set" mode for data currently displayed
- use momentary MODE to choose target item
- use UP/DOWN to change item

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.

I just purchased a Heritage Mint Ltd Timepiece Quartz Regulator wall clock but it chimes two hours slower than the actual time. Need to know how to correct it. There is a red push button on the back of...

I have the same clock. Here's what I did to re-set it after changing batteries: After replacing batteries, use the turn dial to set the correct time. Press the RED button 6 times, wait for it to go through that series of chimes, then press the button again to set the time.
Example: Press RED button 6 times. Wait for it to chime. Press RED button the correct number of times for the hour to be set. For 5:00, press the button 5 times, etc.
I lost the directions to my clock, and I am posting this from memory and also just had to re-set mine and it works OK now.
Hope this helps!

I have a quartz president wall clock, I changed the battery and set the time OK but the chime needs setting and I have no instructions as it is a very old clock

These are general quartz wall clock instructions as I dont know enough about what type/style of clock you have.
  • Open the access door to the dial and hands of the clock if required. Some battery-operated clock movements are sealed inside the clock case with a back panel that is screwed in place. To gain access to the hand set knob, remove the back panel screws using the appropriate tipped screwdriver.
  • Turn the minute hand (or turn the hand set knob at the rear of the movement if access is available) carefully counterclockwise or clockwise until the correct time is reached. Keep in mind that using the hand set from the rear would require turning the knob in a clockwise direction in order for the hands to turn counterclockwise.
  • Move the hour hand carefully with your fingers near the center of the hand to the hour that the clock is striking if the striking chime is not counting the correct hour. The hour hand is a friction fit hand and will move without engaging the minute hand.
  • Replace the back panel and tighten the screws with the screwdriver if removal of the back panel was necessary to access the hand set knob.
  • Close the front access door if required.

    I have a Sunbeam Westminster Quartz mantle clock I bought approx 17 yrs ago and after replacing the battery and setting the time again the clock stops after an hour or two. Any ideas of what the problem...

    mcdevito75 here, Even a so-called new battery doesn"t really mean it"s NEW!! NEW!! in other words your NEW! battery could have been laying in a store for months before you bought it. Thes ebatteries have a shelf life of a few months, about 1 year with use in a clock / watch.---- Try another battery, also the quartz mechanism could be starting to wear., also double check the battery is installed correctly.

    How to set the clock how do i no the battery good just got it

    If the watch is not running it's probably the battery. To set, pull the crown out and turn to adjust the time. Push the crown in to run the watch. If the watch is new the battery should be OK but take it back to the store if it doesn't run. If you bought it used take it to any watch shop for a battery replacement. Sears does it for about $8 or less.

    Set time on Touch Screen Thermo Clock

    Hi there,

    Just in case you didn't manage to set the time / date on your tocuh screen thermo clock, I'll try to help you from my experience (no available manual at the moment!).

    1. To set the time, touch the clock icon on the upper left corner;
    2. Keep touching the screen for longer than 5 seconds, on the hour area;
    3. Touch the hour area until you get what you want (if you prefer the 24 hour display style, touch repeatedly until you get the right hour without the AM / PM indicator next to it);
    4. Touch the clock icon again to start the clock;
    5. Repeat steps 1 to 4 to set up the minutes (the hour area will be replaced by the minutes area);
    6. To set the date, tocuh the calendar icon on the left hand side;
    7. Keep touching the screen for longer than 5 seconds, on the year area;
    8. Touch the year area until you get what you want;
    9. Touch the month area until you get what you want;
    10. Touch the day area until you get what you want;
    11. The screen will reverse to the time display after 5 seconds if no touch.
    12. The TEMP (temperature) area, if touched, is toggling between C and Fahrenheit degrees.

    P.S. I don't know if it is possible to set an earlier time / date, except touching. I mean, if 2009 is on the screen and you want 2007, you'll keep touching up to 2030 and then from 1901 up to 2007.

    Hope it helped.
