    I can't re-set the Timex T301B to the proper time zone even after trying all 7 zones. My clock doesn't seem to allow for DST in the Pacific NW. Please find a solution.

Press the SET button until you cycle through the alarms and the Colons on the time start to flash. use the right and left arrows from the CD buttons to adjust time; After time is set; press the SET button. Be careful to not fat finger and hit the CD button when pressing the SET buttons. That will turn on the AWFUL NAP timer. That's another headache.

Stop the Nap alarm Press NAP to start NAP flashing. Press and hold NAP to cancel the nap setting. If this does not work; try again. It seems to take me a time or 2 to get it to work.

I've just realized that it seems complicated because we are used to seeing the numbers flash to indicate that we can change them; however, with this clock, it does not work that way.

Also, you do not need to hold the SET button down.

To set the CLOCK ...

Press SET three (3) times ... it will display the wrong time and the colon will flash - just press the FF or RR to set the time and you can press and hold down FF or RR to move ahead or back faster. Then press SET to store the new time. And you are done!

To set the ALARMS ...

Press SET once ... it will display wake 1 time and just press the FF or RR to set the time. Press either CANCEL once or SET 3 times to exit.

Press SET twice ... it will display wake 2 time and just press the FF or RR to set the time. Press either CANCEL once or SET 2 times to exit.

Enjoy your clock!

LouToYou adds:
To set your clock back 1 hour you must click the time change (up or down buttons) 60 times -- which is one hour.
EXAMPLE: The clock does not change from 3:46 to 2:46 without you pressing the Minutes button 60 times after the time started flashing. The minutes will change the hour to the next lower hour after you have "deducted" a full 60 minutes. Or, the minutes will increase the hour to the next higher hour if you add 60 minutes to your pre-set time. You add or deduct minutes to change the pre-set hour.

From LouToYou regarding the Timex T301B clock/radio/alarm: I wrote an email to the Timex company and they wrote back saying:
We apologize but there is no patch available. Consumers must change clocks.

Due to newly enacted government regulations, effective this year you must change the time manually, since the calendar was programmed to change according to the time DST issued by the government, it will not recognize the change after 2007. Now the time must be changed 4 times.

Press & hold the time set button until the time flash, then release it and press the ff >> or << rev buttons.

So, manually hold down the Time Set button until the time flashes (this takes some time -- mess around with it). Then use the up and down arrows just above the Time Set button to set the the clock to the correct time. Be sure to have the correct time zone set first. Hey, it worked for me!!!

I found a solution to my Bose no feature for time adjustment: I wake up "earlier" one hour! This way, I am not in late for work for 1 hr! I wish they could have send the instructions with the machine...especially since they are not quite easy to replace financially speaking...

I want to know how to reset my clock in my 2005 Honda inspire car. the dash is all set out in Japanese.

Don't know your car but clock on a lot of cars is controlled by the other button near the odo reset - press and hold till clock flashes, these buttons are normally near speedo and rev counter normally ignition on engine off then sometimes your button turns left or right to adjust. Either that or search for images of your car and it's clock.

Hotpoint oven bs43

you need to send the full model number,most likely you have a bad clock assy.even though your clock might work it comes with the clock and a computer board all together.i never heard of resetting a timer,i do know that if you unplug or shut down the power from the fuse box for 5 to 10 minutes sometimes resets the computer just like a regular house computer, it sounds like your loosing power and i don't think resetting anything is gonna help you,also make sure you have 240 volts going to the oven,but if the fan and light are not working and no heat it sounds like you have a bad clock assy.if it's in good shape and depending on the age you might want to call someone in to check it for you,if it is the clock assy. it might not be avalable anymore but there are companies that can rebuild the clock assy. you have.good luck with your oven.

Easy one...93 Lincoln...need to know how to set the clock on the radio/cassette as well as the stations. Thanks in advance!

assuming this is the digital clock, you hit the clock button on the dash, followed by the reset button followed by the clock button. at this point, you should be able to hit the clock button to advance numbers, and the reset button to change the numbers you are setting. if its the analog clock, pull on the knob and turn it

Clock will not reset

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

Your owner's manual will you tell you what the icons in the display mean.

Many Emerson microwave owner's manuals are available for free download here.

Even though yours may not be there, there might be one close enough to help you .

Once you've done a reset and checked your manual, if you still need help, let us know.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
