Question about Dakota 2786-6 Wristwatch
One needs specific equpment to be able to trouble shoot this kind of watch. Most of the time, the problem will be related to dirt, dust, oxidation, and occasionally, battery corrosion. It can also be a cracked solder connection. If you are getting a display, then the problem will be with a push button switch. This could possibly be cleaned with electronic contact cleaner, just let it dry thoroughly after cleaning it.
To verify radio control, one actually needs at least an ocilloscope, that usually only a repair facility would have. However, there is a procedure for solution for setting the time from another Fixya expert, and here it is:

When changing time zones, your watch must be manually set for the new time zone you will be entering. This watch is not designed to adjust for new time zones automatically. Instructions for changing time zones can be changed using the directions found on pages 2-4 in your instruction manual. When changing to and from DST, your watch should automatically adjust for this difference with the next 24 hours after the change. If your watch has not adjusted, you may be in an area that is not receiving signal. Check if your watch has received signal by using the directions found on page 1 of your instruction manual. If your watch has received signal in the past and no longer is receiving signal, your watch may need to be serviced or exchanged. Please contact Dakota Watch Company Customer Service by email at email@example.com, or by phone at 1-888-459-0404. ******************************** Good luck, and hope this helps.

Hello. The radio control only sets the watch once each day so wait a full 24 hours after you put in the new battery and it should reset. J.
