Sharp Atomic Clock Model Number SPC 374T

We recently switched to day light savings time and our clock is still reading standard time. We are set for eastern standard time which is correct. We changed the batteries today and saw the time on the clock reset itself to the correct time but it is still off 1 hour. We are wondering if this could be due to the preprogrammed DST module that is in the clock? The DST indicator is not lit up indicating that perhaps this is the case. Any suggestions?

    I have the same problem. After daylight savings, my clock was reading an hour behind. I tried to reset it, but now it seems broken. No hands move and the time just stays at 12:00.

    We live in AZ, so we don't "spring ahead" or "fall back". After reseting the clock for another reason, it now reads DST - (one hour ahead of AZ time.)



    How can we change the time zone?

    I have the Sharp 373 and the same problem about setting the time zone. There is no button in back for this at all.  I thought I had it set correctly and then it changed to Pacific Time and we are in Central Time Zone. It registers at DST too which is incorrect.  I don't think  was a manual that came with this clock and I cannot find anything on the WEB.  Can anyone help?

    In order to set the correct time zone, the SPC 373 must be manually reset - push a small pin into the reset hole and depress the small button switch on the clock's circuit card. Be careful! The clock will let you reset the time zone at this point before you set the time.

I had the same problem last year and called the number on the back of the clock 718-610-2717 - it was busy forever - finally I got through and they gave me another number to call - I did get the problem fixed I just can't remember how exactly to fix it again. I think I had to manually reset...I have been trying the original number again - but it has been busy for the 4 days I have been trying. I will keep trying...

Daylight Saving Time Changes for SmartSet Clock/Radios


Dear Emerson SmartSet® Clock/Clock Radio Owner:
Your Emerson SmartSet® Clock or Clock Radio includes Emerson’s patentedAuto Time Setting System that
automatically sets the clock to the correct year, month, date, day and time, the first time that you plug it in, and
after every power interruption. It also includes a built-in long life lithium battery that can maintain the time and
alarm settings for up to 5 years, or even longer.
As an added benefit we have programmed the internal SmartSet® computer to automatically adjust for Standard/
Daylight Saving Time changes through the year 2097. TheDaylight Saving Time information programmed into
all SmartSet® models was based on the United States Uniform TimeAct of 1966, which formalized theDaylight
Saving Time period that we observe today. CurrentlyDaylight Saving Time begins on the first Sunday in April
and ends on the last Sunday in October.
The new Energy Bill that was signed into law by President Bush in August 2005 includes a provision to
extend Daylight Saving Time. Beginning in 2007 Daylight Saving Time will begin on the second Sunday in
March and end on the first Sunday in November.
Of course this is a situation that is beyond the control of Emerson, or any other company that produces
devices with an automaticDaylight Saving Time adjustment feature. For example most computers, PDA’s, and
many other devices also have automatic DST adjustments. Manufacturers of these devices must now begin to
make adjustments to the automatic DST software to agree with the new DST timing for 2007.
Beginning in 2007 the current automatic DST default settings in this device would no longer be correct. It
would then be necessary for you to manually adjust the TIME ZONE setting 4 times each year as follows:
1.) On the second Sunday in March you would have to set your clock to the next lower number time zone.
For example if you lived in the Eastern Time zone (Zone 02) you would then change your clock to Zone
1 to move it ahead by one hour.
2.) On the first Sunday in April, this clock will automatically advance by one hour. You must then set the
clock back to your correct time zone. For example if you lived in the Eastern Time zone you would set
your clock back to Zone 02.
3.) On the last Sunday in October you would again set your clock to the next lower numbered time zone.
4.) On the first Sunday in November you would again set your clock back to your correct time zone.
Instructions for changing the Time Zone setting are found in the Owner’s Manual.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause due to circumstances that are beyond our control.

How do I change from military to 12 hour format on the time display of the Sharp Atomic Weather Station SPC1003


Resetting: 1. Remove batteries from both the outdoor transmitter and the Temperature station. 2. Wait at least 30 seconds and then repeat the procedures specified in Setting up (above). Note: Always wait at least 30 seconds after removing the batteries before reinserting, otherwise start up and transmission problems may occur. Also, remember when insertting, that both units have to reset and to always reinsert the batteries to the transmitter first

Instructions
    • 1 Insert the batteries into the clock and verify that the clock's display is functioning.
    • 2 Set the correct time-zone and Daylight Saving Time (DST) switches. The switches are on the back of the clock. Select EST if you are in Eastern Standard Time, CST if you are in Central Standard Time, MST if you are in Mountain Standard Time, or PST if you are in Pacific Standard Time. The DST selector should be set to "off" or "on" depending on the laws of your state.
    • 3 Wait 15 minutes. The clock should synchronize automatically.
    • 4 Set the clock manually using the buttons on the back panel if the clock does not catch the radio signal within the first 15 minutes. Push the correct button to advance the month/day/year on the calendar; use the MODE button to set the hour and minute.
    • 5 The clock should adjust itself within 48 hours to match the atomic signal. Verify that the clock is receiving the signal by checking the front display. You should see the image of a tower with circular lines at its top.

How do I change the time on my TIMEX T307S clock?


Hello
To adjust time follow this.

Auto-Set Time and Date Settings

This model is equipped with the Auto-Set feature, meaning that the time and date have been programmed at the factory

and will already be set when you first plug the model in. Auto-Set will automatically adjust the time and date settings for

daylight-saving time and leap years. Auto-Set is programmed for Eastern Standard Time; if you do not live in this time zone,

you can easily switch the setting to one of six other time zones.

1. To change your time zone setting, press and hold the 8 Time Zone Button. The current Auto-Set Time Zone in the

lower-right-hand corner of the display will flash for approximately ten seconds, after which the display will revert to the

standard clock display.

2. While the Auto-Set Time Zone is flashing, press the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to select your time zone.

The display will show each zone's current time setting. There are seven zones to choose from:

Auto-Set Time Zones

Z-01 Atlantic Standard Time

Z-02 Eastern Standard Time

Z-03 Central Standard Time

Z-04 Mountain Standard Time

Z-05 Pacific Standard Time

Z-06 Alaskan Standard Time

Z-07 Hawaiian Standard Time

3. Find your time zone, then press the 4 Enter Button or wait about ten seconds for the clock to beep twice and the

setting to lock into place.

Manual Time and Date Settings

1. To change your time setting, press and hold the J Time Set Button so that the clock display begins flashing.

2. While the display flashes, press the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to set the time. Hold a button for a few

seconds to set the time rapidly. Be sure to set the correct AM/PM time, shown by the PM Indicator.

3. After setting the time, press the 4 Enter Button or wait about ten seconds for the clock to beep twice and the setting

to lock into place.

4. To change the calendar, press and hold the 9 Date/7-5-2 Button until the display shows the flashing year.

5. Press the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to set the current year. When you have selected the year, press the

4 Enter Button, then use the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to set the month/day.
6. After you have set the date, press the 4 Enter Button or wait for the display to beep twice and lock into place.

I have a Westclox, Calander Model 70026. I have set the clock several times to the correct time,(with the time zone at the proper setting) but, after a day or so, the hour reading, reverts back...


It's most likely because of Daylight Saving Time. Your clock receives a signal through the air once a day from the actual atomic clock, much like a cell phone receives the time from your cell phone service provider, and it automatically resets itself to the exact time each time it receives this signal. Remember that the middle of the year (the second Sunday in March until the first Sunday in November in the US) is Daylight Saving Time for much of the United States. The clock has an option that allows you to set whether you are observing Daylight Saving Time or not. If this is set to "off", the time will be one hour behind until Daylight Saving Time ends (November 7th). Make sure this is set properly, and your problem will be solved.

How do you set the alarm for pacific standard time on the emerson


Here is the procedure for setting the time zones for your Clock/Radio. Setting The Time, The First Time IMPORTANT: The first time you connect your new SmartSet® clock radio to the AC outlet the internal computer will automatically set the time correctly for the Eastern Time Zone, which is the initial default setting. The display will scan for a few seconds and then show the correct Day and Time in the Eastern zone. If you live in the Eastern Time zone, there?s nothing else to do. Your clock is set correctly and running. If you do not live in the Eastern Time zone you must change the default zone display to your own zone. You only do this one time and the SmartSet® will remember the new default zone setting and will always return to that setting after a power interruption. There are 7 time zones programmed into your SmartSet® clock radio as follows: ZONE 1 ? Atlantic Time ZONE 2 ? Eastern Time (Default Setting) ZONE 3 ? Central Time ZONE 4 ? Mountain Time ZONE 5 ? Pacific Time ZONE 6 ? Yukon Time ZONE 7 ? Hawaiian Time To change the default time zone display, depress the Time Zone button. The number ?02? will appear on the display indicating that the default zone is ZONE 2, Eastern Time I will give you the web link for the owners manual so you can find any other information you might need for your Clock/Radio. (http://www.emersonradio.com/owners/iPod%20Series/iC200_042007.pdf) copy this web address and paste it in the address bard of your browser and it will take you to a pdf copy of the owners manual. I hope this information help you with your problem.

Daylight savings time again


Appparently the problem could be with your location, or just that there may be a delay before time correction until the old date - check again the link to amazon i posted before - there are a couple of new reviews that discusss the daylight saving issue, also - The US clock says; "I have a radio controlled clock that receives NIST time. Will the new rules affect me? Your radio controlled clock should automatically implement the new DST rules. The WWVB broadcast contains information that tells your clock whether DST or ST is currently in effect. NIST always sends this information to agree with the current DST rules, so your clock should change automatically on the day of the change, just as it has in previous years. If the time is wrong after the DST change, make sure that your clock has recently received the time signal. Many radio controlled clocks have a synchronization indicator that will tell you if your clock has recently synchronized. If the clock isn't receiving the signal, click here for some tips on improving reception. If it has received the signal recently, check to make sure that the clock's time zone setting is set properly. Also, if you live in an area where DST is not observed (Arizona, for example), you need to disable the automatic DST function on your clock. I have a non-radio controlled clock that used to automatically correct itself for DST. Will it still work? The only way to find out is to wait and see, or to contact the manufacturer of the clock. There are a large number of non-radio controlled clocks, marketed under names like "AUTOSET" or "SMARTSET" that have internal firmware that automatically changes the time by one hour on the transition days to and from DST. These clocks do not connect to a NIST time service, and some of them will no longer work properly due to the DST rule change. For example, clocks manufactured prior to the rule change will probably not switch to DST in March, but will wait until April in accordance with the old rule. If you have a clock like this that fails due to the new rules, your only recourse is to adjust the clock manually, or to contact the manufacturer and ask for an upgrade or a replacement. If you need to contact manufacturer check http://www.emersonscott.com/ezsetamclocr.html Hope this helps:)
