How do you change the time from a 24hr clock to a 12hr clock. For example clock says 19:50 instead of 7:50 pm on a Brookstone 5-in-1 Sensor Clock.

Selecting 12- or 24- Hour Mode While in the Time screen, press or to select either 12- or 24-hour mode. If 12-hour mode is selected, PM displays for the afternoon/evening hours. AM does not display for the morning hours

How do you set the time? I figured out the alarm clock but can't find a way to set up the time.

Setting the Clock
1. Press and hold the HOUR button for 5 seconds (Fig. 5). The time will begin to flash
2. While the time is flashing, press the HOUR button until you reach the correct hour. Then press the
MINUTE button (Fig. 5) until you reach the correct minute.
NOTE: PM indicator will appear on the left side of the clock face for evening hours (Fig. 5). If the
PM indicator is not illuminated, the hour is set to AM. Be sure to set the time for the correct
12-hour period - AM (morning) or PM (evening).
NOTE: After 5 seconds, the time will stop flashing and it will be set.

Somehow the clock is displaying 24 hour time format. I want to get back to 12 hour format. How?

Push the mode button twice to enter the "set time" mode. Once the digital display is blinking, keep pushing "mode" until the PM display section in the upper left corner comes on. Once that happens you are back to the 12 hour clock. To set the clock, use the 1-4 buttons to set the hours and minutes.

Hope this helps.

It is a slow process, but by holding down the minute buttons, cycle past the 60 minutes and the hour will also change. Then you will need to be sure you have the AM/PM set if you want to use the alarm for the proper time.
I found our manual last night, and it is very annoying to have to spend so much time on such a minor issue. I blame designers.
good luck

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.

12 hour vs 24 hour read on clock

Push the "mode" button twice to enter the time change function. Once the display is blinking keep pushing the mode button until you see the "pm" icon on the LCD display. When that happens set the clock as you normally would using the 1-4 keys.

Remember to check if the 12 hour clock is set to AM or PM.

Good luck.

Savings time

This is more of a Clarification than a solution.
I've determined that the SS-5000 is not recognizing the changes to DST that happened in 2007.

From 1986 to 2006 this was the first Sunday in April to the last Sunday in October, but starting in 2007, it is observed from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November, adding about a month to daylight saving time.

So in March the clock is still trying to keep the "earler" time and in November it's trying to keep the 'later' time.

I'm contacting HomeMedics Support to see if there's a resolution.
