It's just a minor annoyance, but the clock on my sansa stopped keeping time. It still says 1:12 pm, 5 hours after setting it at 1:00 pm, and when i listen to music it doesn't move at all. How can i fix this problem?

Depends the make and settings but to set mine I push the time button keeping it pushed with one hand then push the hour button with the other and that should make the hour numbers go. You have to do this till the time goes to where you want.Say it is now 3pm then go around to 2 pm. That sets it back one hour. It will take you to the am and keep going to the pm.
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.
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.
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.
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.
There are three buttons, let's call them 1, 2, and 3, from left to right.
Clock Time setting
A. 12 AM, PM or 24.00 h With the clock in the time readout mode, keep button (2) depressed for 4 seconds -12 AM, PM or 24.00 flashing. After pushing button (1), either a 12-hour (AM + PM) or a 24-hour setting program can be selected. If you only want to change the display mode, push button (3). The clock then returns to its normal timekeeping function.
B. Hours Push button (2) a second time - hour display flashes. Set hour by pushing button (1). After pushing button (3)*, the clock returns to the time readout mode with new hour setting.
C. Minutes Push button (2) once more - minute display flashes. Set minute by pushing button (1). Upon pushing button (3)*, the clock is started - accurate to within 1 second.
Stop watch function The stop watch can only be set in motion if the clock is in its normal timekeeping mode and not during setting operations. A. Push button (3) - 00:00 display appears; B. Push button (1) - stop watch is on; C. Push button (1) a second time - watch stops. (Additional times can be added by pushing button (1) again - stop watch keeps running. Push button (1) once more to stop timing.) D. Push button (2) - 00:00 display appears; E. Push button (3) - normal timekeeping mode.
If button (3) is pushed during operation A and B, the setting procedure must be restarted (push button (2)).
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.
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.
