How to set the time on an HD 1688 Quartz wall clock

When you put in a new battery, the hands advance to the hour and stop. It then waits to receive a radio signal and sets the time.
to do a manual set, insert the battery and hold down the M button until the correct time. Don't go past it or you will need to continue until it comes up again. There is no reverse.

The previous answers don't fit the HD-1688 Sheng Bang clock mechanism that I have.

We use a Samsom MDR 1688 for a conference venue. Usually we record our conferences and broadcast them. However, it seems to be problem getting the sound from the mixer into the computer we use for...

The AUX output is your best bet as it is independent of the main mix, so the main volume control won't affect the recording. You will need to turn up the AUX control for each channel you wish to record, and also make sure that the AUX master is up. Depending on the software/ hardware you are using to record, you should be able to set the main record level using the AUX master. Start by setting all the AUX controls to 12 o'clock and adjust from there.

    Anniversary train clock; clock does not work

    It's not the motor it's the unit in the middel that works the clock it self. I have the same problem. When the clock passes the hour it is supose to send a signal to start the motor. There are two tiny pices metal that are supose to contact each other on the hour and they break off easy.

    You have to replace the clock unit and reconect the two black wires.

    Try by passing it. The two black wires that come from the clock unit. Cut them and touch them together. Make sure the light sencer on the front is not covered.

    Good Luck
