Clock format The clock gives the time in 24 hour mode. The LCD readout has an "AM" and "PM", but no instructions on how to change the mode from 24 hour to 12 hour AM and PM. What do I have to do to change to 12 hour mode? Thanks.

    I have the same problem. The clock shows the time in 24 mode and I would like it to be in 12 hour mode. No instructions are given in the owners manual or any other manual received when purchased. Hope to find a resolution.

24 hour mode is all there is. Time to learn military time.

This is stupid but I lost my manual and can't figure out how to change the time on my Philips DVP3050v


I assume you wish to set the VCR (model DVP3050) clock. This is easy, just follow these instructions:

  1. Press VCR, then press DISC/VCR MENU so MENU appears. If the clock has never been set, the CLOCK SET menu may appear when you press DISC/VCR MENU. If so, follow the instructions from step 3 on this page.
  2. Press \/ or /\ to select CLOCK SET.Then, press >.
  3. While the MONTH space is flashing, press \/ or /\ until the month appears.Then, press >.
  4. While the DAY space is flashing, press \/ or /\ until the day appears.Then, press >.
  5. While the YEAR space is flashing, press \/ or /\ until the year appears.Then, press >. The day of the week will appear automatically.
  6. While the HOUR space is flashing, press \/ or /\ until the hour appears.Then, press >.
  7. While the MINUTE space is flashing, press \/ or /\ until the minute appears.Then, press >.
  8. While the AM or PM space is flashing, press \/ or /\ to point to AM or PM. Your selection will flash on the screen in the AM/PM space.
  9. Press CLEAR/RESET or > to start the clock.

How to set the clock on vcr/dvd.


Make sure the antenna//cable TV connections are correct. Channels are set. If this unit is connected to a cable/satellite box, select the local PBS station on them to set the clock automatically.

There's an Auto Clock Setting. "This Unit can set the time and date automatically by reffering to a PBS station.". But I never had to do that, I just went to Setup and it already knew what the date and time was.

"Note: The clock may set itself automatically after you connect the antenna/cable signal and plug in the power cord. Only the analog PBS channel signal is effective for auto clock setting. The unit receives the clock data at 12:00 A.M./P.M. from the PBS channel when the power is off.

1 Press [SETUP] and use the up and down arrows to select "General Setting", then press OK.
"General Setting" menu will appear.

2. Use up and down arrows to select "Clock" then press OK.
"Clock" menu will appear.

3. Use up and down arrows to select "Auto Clock Setting", then press OK.

4. Use up and down arrows to select "Auto" then press OK.

5 Press SETUP to exit.

6. Press STANDBY-ON to turn off the unit.
This unit will search for the time only when the power is off. Leave it off for several minutes to give this unit time to set the clock.

If the unit chooses an incorrect PBS channel, set the PBS channel manually by following the steps below:

1. Select "Manual" at step 4, then press OK.
2. Use [the number buttons] or up and down arrows to enter your PBS channel number, then press OK.
3. Press SETUP and turn off the unit.

If this doesn't work, let me know and I'll type up the instructions for what to do if you need to actually set the clock manually.

You can automatically set the clock by turning “ON” the
AUTO CLOCK function.
When you want to set the auto clock function to “OFF”,
select “AUTO CLOCK”, press ENTER and select “OFF”
from the list.

Auto clock setting
Preparation:
You must connect the antenna or cable before connecting
the AC cord to the power source.
Wait 30 minutes with the power turned off, after the
antenna or cable is connected, for the auto clock
feature to activate.
After the clock is set automatically, you may have to set
the time zone and daylight saving time. (See page 26.)
Press STANDBY/ON to turn on the DVD/VCR after the
auto clock operation completed.
• When shipped from the factory, the “AUTO CLOCK”
option is set to “ON” position.
• If you turn the DVD/VCR on during auto clock
setting, the clock is not set.
• After a power failure or disconnection of the power
plug, the clock setting will be lost. In this case, wait
30 minutes before turning the DVD/VCR on.
• With cable box connection, if the auto clock setting
is unsuccessful, select the PBS channel carrying
the XDS information, then turn the DVD/VCR off.
After 30 minutes, turn the DVD/VCR on.
• If the clock is not set automatically, set the clock
manually.


STANDARD TIME (Time zone)
In the rare event that you live within the broadcast range
of two stations in two different time zones, the DVD/VCR
may recognize the wrong station for the auto clock set.
To correct the situation:
Select “STANDARD TIME” and select the time zone from
the list below.
Selectable time zones and correction times
ATLANTIC: GMT – 4 hours
(GMT: Greenwich Mean Time)
EASTERN: GMT – 5 hours
CENTRAL: GMT – 6 hours
MOUNTAIN: GMT – 7 hours
PACIFIC: GMT – 8 hours
ALASKA: GMT – 9 hours
HAWAII: GMT – 10 hours
AUTOMATIC: AUTO SET
Note
• When shipped from the factory, the “TIME ZONE” is
set to “AUTOMATIC”.
• After making the auto clock setting, in some cases
the clock may display another time zone. You can
correct the clock by selecting your time zone
setting above.
• When the clock is not set or you set the clock
manually, the time zone setting is not available.

or manually.
To select daylight saving time, select “DAYLIGHT
SAVING TIME” and select “ON”, while to cancel the
daylight saving time, select “OFF”.

OFF: For manual setting (back 1 hour)
AUTOMATIC: For automatic setting (read XDS in
the signal)

• When you want to set daylight saving time, on the
first Sunday in April you set it to “ON”, and on the
last Sunday in October you set it to “OFF”.
• When shipped from the factory, the “DAYLIGHT
SAVING TIME” option is set to “AUTOMATIC”.
• When the clock is not set, the daylight saving time
setting is not available.
• When there is no daylight saving time in your area,
always select “OFF”.

Can't change the clock time


Best Solution posted Nov 6, 2008, by Guest -- worked for me. Wondering what the DST is? -- Daylight Savings Time. There will be a button at the bottom right in the date OFF. Apparently the TV Guide programing does not work that well, especially with the new Digital boxes now need to receive over the air TV and the TV Guide programing never worked with Satellite TV. Wil this feature ever be up dated? I doubt it. It would be nice to have the digital box and your dvr cycled together.
