Slide the switch with a lock, wake 1, wake 2 and clock to the clock position. Using the backwards and forwards buttons get time to the correct time. When correct time is reached, slide the switch to the lock position. Time will now be set.

My clock is constantly blinking and won't go on the right time. I unplugged it and plugged it again, it just keeps blinking.


Hello
Check the bckup batteries in the clock first. If they are weak, backup function will not work properly, and the display will blink after a mains power failure.

Auto Clock Set

You do not have to set the clock time as a

built-in automatic time set system is

equipped in this clock powered by 3V (2

X AA batteries, included). All you have to

do is to plug this clock for power and

current time will be shown automatically.

However, the batteries can also be

exhausted and we recommend that you
replace the batteries every 2-3 years

Before You Plug for Power

1. Setting Time Zone

You may slide the TIME ZONE selector at

the back of the unit to Eastern (EST),

Central (CST), Mountain (MST) or Pacific

(PST) (refer to the maps on the right).

2. Daylight Saving

You can slide the DST switch at the back

of the unit to turn on/ off in areas

observing/ not observing such time

change.

WARNING: Please avoid playing with

these buttons after entering the
Clock/Alarm set mode.

Setting Clock

1. Slide the switch /WAKE1/WAKE2/

on the top of the unit to clock position.

2. Press REV or FWD to set the clock

time. The time decrements or increments

will follow by a faster rate when you press

and hold the buttons. The ":" between

hour and minute time flashes when you

are setting the time. AM or PM icon will

also beside the time.

3. Slide the switch /WAKE1/WAKE2/

on the top of the unit to position
when finished.
OK.

Brookstone smart set alarm clock. It is about 20minutes ahead


I've noticed that manually setting the clock forward or back by any number of minutes, results in the same time offset being displayed after unplugging - plugging back in. So, if it's 9pm and you set if 5 minutes fast (9:05pm). Then unplug it and plug it back in 30 minutes later (9:30pm), the clock will maintain your setting of 5 minutes ahead of the actual time (9:35).

I like to set my clocks 5 minutes fast, just to make me always think I'm running a bit late (sure, maybe I'm a bit crazy). But this "sticky" manual setting is kind of a nice feature in my opinion. I'm wondering if it's not intentional?

Anyway, just manually set it back to the real time, and it sho

At the top of the clock, there is four positions for the slider. The first is shown as a key, which I assume is the automatic time setting mode. The second is Wake 1, the third is Wake 2 and all the way to the right is a manual time setting mode. If you slide it all the way to the right, you can set the time, then either keep it in that mode or return it back to automatic mode. Either way, you now have the correct time displayed.

Equity 44100 clock radio problem


Hold the Alarm Set button down for about 5-7 seconds. The year will flash. Skip the year and date by pressing Alarm Set a couple times until the time is displayed. Use the Up and Down to change, then press Alarm Set one more time to save it. This clock is ****, by the way. I run into them in hotels and it makes me nuts as well. Very non-intuitive.

On the time lost issue...there is a button battery (CR2032) in a compartment underneath. That battery keeps the internal time so when the clock is plugged in, it "instantly" sets the time. Problem is, if the internal time is set wrong, then it instantly sets the wrong display time when it it plugged in. See procedure above to correct that.

On the back of the clock - left hand side if you've laid it down on it's face - is a row of switches. You need to start the time set-up with the clock having been unplugged so there's no time set in the memory5.gif.
Now, to those switches: The first (from the left) is DST = Daylight Savings Time - right now you'de set this to "ON."
The second switch is Time Zone: PST, MST, CST, EST (Pacific, Mountain, Central, Eastern). Set the switch to the time zone you are in.
The third is just the brightness.

Now, to set the time itself:
1 - Turn the clock face back up to where you can see it.
2 - LOOK AT THE CLOCK - LOL! This is an atomically set clock - you shouldn't need to set the time. The atomic clock bounces off of satellites all around the world. There is literally little to no "dead zones" for the clock, so you should never have to set your clock - just set it up like I state at the beginning.

Good Luck!
