SOURCE: Changing the time

you can go to http://www2.oregonscientific.com/assets/manuals2/bar338pa.pdf to see or print the user's manual.

If you don't want to get the manual, here's what you do to fix it. . . . .
*note: you need to do this anytime you change the batteries.

1) open the battery cover
2) on the left side you'll see 3 little buttons labeled a)zone, b)C/F c)reset
3) push the reset
4)push the zone button until your time zone is highlighted on the front display
5) look at the front display & if you see a blinking "radio signal" icon at upper left of time numerals
don't do anything else. The time, date, etc. will automatically synchronize your clock with the US Atomic Clock. This could take up to 10 minutes. As long as the "radio signal" icon is blinking, it's working on it. When the icon doesnt' blink, it's set. Cool, huh?
6) if the area you live in can't receive the signal from the Atomic Clock, instead of a blinking "radio signal", you'll see just a bare antennae. Since you probably set your clock manually, that's what it shows now before you do anything.
7) after you push reset & set the time zone do NOT touch any other buttons to set anything!!! (I know it's difficult to leave things alone, but just sit on your hands). Pushing the "clock" button or the up & down arrows will stop the radio signal & change to manual functions. Look at the signal icon mentioned in 5) and 6) above. If you only have the bare antennae icon. . . . . go ahead & set the time/date yourself. You have no signal.

Enjoy your clock!

Make sure the day is displayed instead of seconds, then homd down the + button for 5 seconds. Every 5 seconds should advance it on zone. Had same problem and just got done resetting mine this way.

Make sure that the clock is set for the correct time zone and that the DST (Daylight Saving Time) function is ON. Also, although not mentioned in the manuals, these clocks will typically jump and hour ahead or behind when the batteries get weak. Replace your batteries if they are more than a year old.

Should be 4 buttons, 2 on left and 2 on right. Press bottom left 3 times and hour offset digit will be displayed. Press and hold top left until hour offset digit starts to flash. Press either top or bottom right to adjust offset hour to correspond with your time zone. Eastern -5, central -6, mountain -7, pacific -8. These are negative numbers, not positive. Then press top left button once, then press bottom left button to return to time display.

Sentry self setting atomic clock lost the instructions


Select The Time Zone - For Sentry Self-setting Atomic Clock (ATC - 10)
The default time zone is Pacific zone.
1. In the normal time mode, press the MODE key to enter the alarm time mode.
2. Press the SET key to change the time zone.
each press of the SET key will move the time zone back one hour
P= Pacific M=Mountain C=Central E=Eastern
3. Press MODE key when correct Time Zone is highlighted.

I think the Instructions may tell you to use the ADJUST key instead of the SET key.
ADJUST key does not work for TIME ZONE change, SET key works.
This will set your clock to your chosen Time Zone for normal time.
Instructions for the ATC20 are located at the following url

Atomic clock is 2 hoursfast


You need to reset it to YOUR time zone. The default on this model is Pacific Coast time so you must be in the Central Time Zone (2 hours ahead of Central). Instruction manual should show you how to reset.
