SOURCE: atomic clock reception

I guess the battery has run out on you. change the battery and you are good to go. I got to warn you though, if you are skittish on taking a good risk, do not try to change the battery yourself. It is a little piece of complex machinery. I have the same problem a while ago. I decided to change the battery myself after the watch repairman tried to sell me a new watch. And you know what, I'm glad I did. My atomic watch is working fine again.

After replacing the transmitter batteries several times, I tried replacing the clock batteries. They must have been getting low. Once I put in new batteries in the clock it worked fine. Good Luck.

SOURCE: I have a skyscan atomic

This is a very common problem that is most frequently caused by the outdoor transmitter going bad. They are surprisingly delicate and don't like getting wet.

You can order replacement transmitters from http://skyscan.info/content/

They only cost $11 and that includes shipping and handling.

SOURCE: skyscan atomic clock receives time signal but is

You didn't tell us the model number but whatever it is, you should find instructions here:
Skyscan website
Our various 'atomic' clocks have either a menu that lets one select or a simple slide switch with US time zones from which to choose.

How do you set an atomic clock


You're not supposed to set the time -- it's supposed to synchronize with the US atomic clock broadcast automatically. Perhaps putting it in a different area of the house, or turning it to a different orientation will help it make the initial connection.
If it still won't, here are instructions from one of the LaCrosse models... use them or go to http://www.lacrossetechnology.com/clocks/atomic-digital/wall/
and find your particular clock, then download the instructions.
------------
MANUAL TIME SETTING
In case the atomic clock is not able to detect the WWVB-signal (disturbances, transmitting distance, etc.), the time can be manually set. The clock will then work as a normal Quartz clock. Note: In 12 hours mode the time will be displayed with an additional "PM" for the time from 12:00 noon until 11:59.
1. The hour digits will start flashing on LCD1.
2. Set the desired hours by pressing and releasing the + key followed by pressing the SET key.
3. Now the minute digits will start flashing.
4. Set the desired minutes by pressing and releasing the + key . If the + key is held, the units will increase by 5.
5. Press and release the SET key to move to the "Year Setting".
Note:
The unit will still try and receive the signal every day despite it being manually set. When it does receive the signal, it will change the manually set time into the received time. During reception attempts the WWVB tower icon will flash. If reception has been unsuccessful, then the WWVB tower icon will not appear but reception will still be attempted the next hour.
WWVB reception occurs daily at 12:00 am and 06:00 am. If the reception is not successful at 12:00 am, then the next reception takes place the next hour and so on until 06:00am, or until the reception is successful. If the reception is not successful at 06:00 am, then the next attempt will take place the next day at 12:00 am.
The other times WWVB reception takes place are upon setup and after manual time set exiting mode. Reception is generally not possible during daylight hours due to the interference of the sun.

Hello

The SkyScan ATOMIC Clock

With the Skyscan Atomic Clock, you have the most accurate timepiece within the continent. It can receive the time signal transmitted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), which is regulated by 3 atomic clocks and deviates less than 1 second within 3,000 years. The NIST broadcasts the time signal (WWVB, 60kHz) continuously from Fort Collins, Colorado. This signal can be received anywhere in the continental USA that long wave (AM) radio reception is possible with a portable radio. It is expected that the signal can cover a distance of over 2,000 miles from the transmitter. Therefore, your clock will receive the signal within the broadcast range anywhere an AM signal can be received; generally the signal cannot be picked up in massive metal and concrete structures unless near a window. In addition, some environmental effects (see next page) may affect the transmitting distance.

Atomic Clock by SkyScan model # 28600. Clock


It does that until it receives a signal. Leave it overnight and it will probably get one. Instructions for this clock are at skyscaninfo.com

This watch will set it's self in a 24 hour time frame. You need only set the time zone your in.

If it does not correct it's self change location in your house. It receives the signal at 0200 0400 and 0600 for the correction.

The transmitter is located in Fort Collins, Colorado. this station transmits the time codes2_bing.gif and is best received at night.

Hope this tip helps

Time setting


The clock will set itself at specific time set times, this is likely to be at 0200 0400 and 0600.

You will however be required to set the time zone, the switch is likely to be on the back.

INFO:
Atomic Time Synchronisation:
How does it work.
SHORT VERSION:
Radio set clocks and watches receive a 60-kilohertz, radio signal from the NIST the official timekeeper for the US and is located in Boulder, Colorado. Ft. Collins. they use atomic clocks and transmits this official time via high frequency short-wave and low frequency AM radio signals, satellite transmission, Internet, and via telephone.
