Question about SkyScan 86742 Digital Atomic Wall Clock

Open Question

How do I set the atomic clock? What do the numbers represent at "date" and "day" other than the obvious "8/23" and "Sun"? I can set the time, day and date but after several hours they go to pm rather than am as it should be and the day and date will be off by one day.

SOURCE: S10Scan atomic clock model 87310 time is 4;pm should be 10:am

Hi

Time zone setting
Language Setting
The weekdays can be displayed in LCD1 with the pre-set languages: US English, French and Spanish.
1. Set the desired language for the weekday display in LCD 2 by use of the + key.
2. Press the SET key to enter the mode “Manual Time Setting”.
Manual Time Setting
In case the Skyscan Atomic Clock is not able to detect the WWVB-signal (disturbances, transmitting distance, etc.), the time can be manually set. The clock will then work as a normal Quartz clock.
Note:
In 12 hours mode the time will be displayed with an additional “PM” for the time from 12:00 noon until 11:59.
1. The hour digits will start flashing on LCD1. Set the desired hours by pressing the +key followed by pressing the SET key.
2. Now the minute digits will start flashing. Set the desired minutes by pressing the +key . If the + key is held, the units will increase by 5.
3. Press the SET key to move to the “Year Setting”.
Note:
The unit will still try and receive the signal every day despite it being manually set. When it does receive the signal, it will change the manually set time into the received time. During reception attempts the WWVB tower icon will flash. If reception has been unsuccessful, then the WWVB tower icon will not appear but reception will still be attempted the following hour.
WWVB time reception takes place from 12:00 am through 6:00 am each day (attempts WWVB reception every full hour within this time frame). When the time signal is received for example at 1:00 am, the Skyscan Atomic Clock will not attempt to receive the WWVB signal for the remaining hours until 6:00 am. Therefore, the next signal attempt will take place between 12:00 am and 6:00 am the next day. The other times WWVB reception takes place, are upon setup and after manual time set exiting mode. Reception is generally not possible during daylight hours due to the interference of the sun.

Thank you

It does that until it receives a signal. Leave it overnight and it will probably get one. Instructions for this clock are at skyscaninfo.com

Module 3070 - PAW1300 > AM / PM problem apparently. Everything works except day and date 12 hours behind. EX: In HNL (Honolulu) on Monday morning, September 6 watch gives correct time, but shows SUN...


Hi, Obviously you need to roll the time 12 hours ahead. If the watch doesn't receive the Atomic signal properly at first, go to page three of your manual, and try doing it manually following the detailed procedures there.

If you don't have the manual, get it here:
http://world.casio.com/wat/download/en/manual/

Take the four-digit (3070) module number from the back of the watch, enter it, and download a PDF of your watch setting-instructions/manual.
I hope this helps you. Thanks, Bill

I can't reset my Atomic Traveling Alarm Clock C17DD2090(WIC#6930


First, make sure you have new batteries in it. Then you have two choices:

Hold down the 3rd button -- the antenna button -- until the little antenna sign displayed on the right starts blinking and "broadcasting"...and then wait for the clock to set itself.

When that doesn't work (LOL), try this:
Hold down the "Set" button until each of the various fields start blinking. Then press the up button (3rd one) or the down button (4th one) to adjust each field to the desired number, etc. At least, that's what my office technician did to set mine. Good luck.

Want to set the clock


Each time you press the set button on the back it selects one of the items that you can set. For example if the "month" is selected by pressing the "set" button then press the "+" key to change it from 1->2->3->4 etc. Each time you press "+" key the month will go up by one. Stop when you reach the correct month. You can do the same for each item including the time zone and daylight savings time and whether you want your temperature to be in Celcius or Farenheit. Hope this helps...
