Question about La Crosse Radio Controlled Atomic Clock
Every day when I have time, I have to change my La CrosseWT-3161 that I bought at Cost Co with instructions on back of box, ahead an hour because it keeps readjusting itself. I figure haven't adjusted the Radio Broadcast to the new Daylight Savings time like in the upper end Mercedes who are having the same issue currently. Is there a fix or do you live with the problem for several more weeks?
It may be a manufacturing defect. I'm an electronics tech in S. Florida and all the LaCrosse clocks (WT-3126) in our new building read an hour earlier than is correct. Complaints to the factory resulted in new clocks being sent to replace the originals...sounds like a manufacturing problem to me because the new ones (WT-3122) work fine.

Alarm Clock Radio
1) Plug clock in before making any adjustments.
2) If using on East Coast- Do nothing! Time and date are set to EST- Daylight Savings time is 'On". Clock is ready to use.
3) If using in time zones other than EST. Hold the clock with LCD facing you. Lean clock back and find small button on bottom right marked P-M-C-E. Hold for 2+ sec. LCD will blink the time zone. Press button again until LCD blinks the correct time zone, CST, MNT, PACIFIC.
4) Daylight Savings time- Default is always on. If you are in a zone that does not recognize daylight savings time. Hold the clock facing you, lean clock back and on bottom left is a small button marked D. Hold 2+ seconds and the LCD will blink ON. Press again and LCD will blink OFF. Daylight savings time is now OFF.
5) If power goes out, clock will retain time and alarm will sound if in the ON position.
6) Replace batteries once every year...!
7) If clock looses time or date:
a. Hold Volume +, and Tuner + at same time for 3 seconds
b. Clock face will blink year
c. Turn outer ring of alarm to set Year
d. Press Tuner + once, turn outer ring to set Month
e. Press Tuner + once, set Day
f. Press Tuner +, set Hour
g. Press Tuner +, set Min.
h. Press Tuner + to save all settings.
You must go through all set points to have them remain in memory. (have to run thru all a - h, can't set just Day or Hour/Min, etc. without starting with Year)
