I have bought my mum a national trust singing bird clock for christmas and it makes a different chime every hour and she wanted to see what each one did, but it has messed up the sequence of the birds and we have now lost the instructios, do you know how to sort it, i know its a quite random questin. thanks x
I don't know if this will work with your clock, but on a version of the singing bird clock sold 10+ years ago, the sequence could get out of sync (when the batteries were low or had been replaced. I would have to wait until the hour of came up for a bird I could easily identify - an owl at noon for instance - then push a button on the back of the clock to play all the songs until the "hoo hoo hoo" came up.
HI there, you could try moving the hands to the hour of one of the birds that you know, then push the re-set button on the back until you get to this sound. Leave it for an hour to check that it is all working well, then change the time. Otherwise, take out the batteries, set time to 12.50, put batteries back in, then set time to correct time. Good luck.

So, on a table it would work if you pushed the button. Hang it on the wall it wont. Are you covering a sensor? Maybe try putting it on the table and placing an object like a book behind it to simulate a wall. See if it still works when you push the button. If it doesn't work with this test you may be covering a sensor. If you have to re-route a light sensor it may be a weekend project.
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.
The hand has a center bushing with the square hole in it.Remove the hand and use a pair of pliers on the bushing in the minute hand then re-clock or rotate the bushing back on the quarter hour then replaced it back on the clock.
Hope this tip provides some workable ideas for this repair.

Automatic Night-Time Silencing Option Grandfather Clocks will offer a night time shutoff option. There are 3 options on this lever. 1) "Night On" - This will keep the chime striking 24 hours 2) "Night Off" - This position will turn off the chiming between 10:15PM and 7:00AM 3) "Strike" - This position will allow the movement to strike the hour without the Westminster melody if the other Westminster melody lever is turned to Silent.
If you hold down the Alarm/Select button then press the Mode button you will see that all the arrows pointing to the MTWTFSS will go away if you press the Mode button again. When the arrows turn off the hourly chime goes away.
