HI>> This problem started a few days ago. When I turn on the computer, it does not show the logging page, instead a screen comes up saying that REAL TIME CLOCK batteries are low or ONBOARD BATTERY...


Hello,
Your PC should not crash from this issue. Your PC motherboard has a small (usually watch size) battery on it that provides power for the clock, and basic I/O settings, such as boot options, disk drives etc... The battery is pretty easy to replace, just open the case and you will see the battery held in a little socket. Make sure to turn PC off and properly ground yourself by using a static wrist band or leaning one arm over the power supply while taking the battery out. Take the battery and go to your local RadioShack, The Source, London Drugs etc.. and show them the battery. It should be a pretty common battery such as a CR2032 or CR2025 etc..
Once you replace the battery go into the BIOS by pressing F2, ESC, or DEL (which ever command shows on your screen for Bios Setup, System setup etc).. Change the clock to read the current time and exit, saving changes. You should not get this error for a long time as these batteries last much like a watch would.
If you don't change the battery, it won't crash your PC, but will eventually annoy you enough to replace it :)
Regards, Chris

I just purchased a Heritage Mint Ltd Timepiece Quartz Regulator wall clock but it chimes two hours slower than the actual time. Need to know how to correct it. There is a red push button on the back of...


I have the same clock. Here's what I did to re-set it after changing batteries: After replacing batteries, use the turn dial to set the correct time. Press the RED button 6 times, wait for it to go through that series of chimes, then press the button again to set the time.
Example: Press RED button 6 times. Wait for it to chime. Press RED button the correct number of times for the hour to be set. For 5:00, press the button 5 times, etc.
I lost the directions to my clock, and I am posting this from memory and also just had to re-set mine and it works OK now.
Hope this helps!

I got the clock from my daughter and have no manual. I keep setting the time, and it keeps changing to 2 hours earlier. I think I've pretty much figured out everything else, though this is NOT intuitive.


Hi, your clock radio is an atomic clock radio... no wait you don't need your lead underwear! it receives a signal from the atomic clock and sets the time to match it, after you set the time zone and put it on auto dst you will never have to set the time again!

ENVIRONMENTAL RECEPTION EFFECTS:


The Atomic Clock obtains the accurate time with wireless technology. Same as all wireless devices, the receiving ability may be affected by, but not limited to, the following circumstances:


  • Long transmitting distance.
  • Nearby mountains and valleys.
  • Among tall buildings.
  • Near railway, high voltage cable, etc.
  • Near freeway, airport, etc.
  • Near construction site.
  • Inside concrete buildings.
  • Near electrical appliances.
  • Near computers and televisions.
  • Bad weather locally or electrical storms between you and Colorado.
  • Inside moving vehicles.
  • Nearby metallic structures.

LOCATION PRECAUTIONS:


This clock receives a radio wave much like a TV or radio. Be sure to locate it near a window or some other location where reception is good. Avoid the following locations, which can interfere with proper reception.




Synchronization signal reception can be received in Continental USA only. In other areas, you can still use this clock by making time settings manually.


QUICKSTART

  1. Place your clock in a location with optimal signal marks on the LCD.
  2. It is recommended to put the clock near a window. Please move the clock to another location if difficulty in signal reception or unstable signal marks is encountered.

Installation
Simply plug the SkyScan clock radio into any household outlet.


Battery Back-up Operation
This clock radio is equipped with alarm time memory that can be powered with a 9-volt battery (not included).When normal household power is interrupted, or the AC cord is unplugged, the battery will power the clock to keep track of the time and set alarm. When the backup battery activates, the LCD backlight is off, however, the functions of alarm and radio still operate.


To Install the Battery
  1. Remove the battery cover at the bottom of the case.
  2. Connect a 9-volt battery to the connector plug.
  3. Insert the battery in the compartment and replace the cover.
Note: An Alkaline battery is recommended. Carbon Zinc and rechargeable (nickel cadmium) batteries not recommended.

Set the Time Zone Press the SET button in sequence until you see PST(Pacific Standard Time)blinking below the time digits on the LCD. Press UP or DOWN button to select your time zone.


Daylight Savings Time
Always slide the DST switch to ON position unless the clock is used in an area without Daylight Savings Time.
**Special attention to usage in Arizona and Indiana. **Arizona and parts of Indiana do not recognize Daylight Savings Time (DST). Turn the DST off if the clock is used in these areas.

Cheers!

Problem with Nikon Coolpix Digital Camera internal battery


Hi

This is a design glitch with these Nikons and many people are complaining about it. The clock battery is supposed to take a small charge from the main battery - enough to maintain the settings when the camera is not in use. However the clock battery that is used is not sufficiently strong enough to hold a charge for an adequate length of time.

As this is somewhat of a design flaw it is unlikely that a new clock battery will make any significant difference to the problem you are experiencing. Neither is it a user serviceable job and for these reasons I do not recommend that you try to replace the clock battery.

Nikon themselves say the following;

"The clock-calendar is powered by a separate rechargeable battery, which is charged as necessary when the main battery is installed. If the camera has been stored with the main battery removed for a long period of time, the clock may need to be reset.

Once the main battery has been reinserted, the clock battery will recharge in several hours, during which time the main battery should be left in the camera."

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

Clock not keeping correct time


The CMOS battery keeps the laptop configuration stored in the CMOS chip and the main battery has no effect on the CMOS.
If the date and time drift off, it indicates the CMOS battery is nearly flat and needs to be replaced.
If you had ticked the Daylight saving box in the Time Zone tab in Control Panel - Date and Time setting then the time would automatically adjust for Daylight saving.

How to set the time in the clock


My daughter got a Columbia digital watch for Christmas and lost the instructions. How can we set the time, etc.   Thanks!   Darwin

Default settings on startup


The Clock Battery When the main battery is installed or an AC adapter is connected, the clock battery will charge in about 10 hours. When fully charged, the clock battery can provide several days of backup power. The language-selection dialog will automatically be displayed when the clock battery is exhausted. This is from the manual- but they do not say it is replaceable.
