Clock face does not show DST. When clock is set to correct time, it turns back one hour at midnight.


DST start and stop was changed a few years back. If you clock has embedded code with the old start and stop, the only way to fix it is to turn off automatic DST. Not sure what clock you are using however it appears to picking up the current GMT time. Another cause is if you have a time zone setting, CST, EST, PST etc.

Cannot get my atomic clock to reset to proper time


Make sure that it has fresh batteries, set it for the correct time zone, set the DST switch to ON (unless your time zone does not use DST), then place the clock on a solid surface, outside if possible, so that the face of the clock is pointed roughly towards Fort Collins, Colorado. It should reset in a couple of hours - or less.

How do I set my skyscan atomic clock


You don't. Just make sure that the rear switches are set for the correct time zone, and that the DST switch is set to the ON position (unless you're in an area that does not use Daylight Saving Time). Make sure that your batteries are fresh, and situate the clock so that the front (or back) is facing roughly in the direction of Ft. Collins, Colorado. Give it a couple of hours to find and sync with the time signal, and it will set itself.

Have a sky scan atomic clock model 86715. it does not adjust when we have the time change. What can I do to correct the time.


If this model has a DST switch on the back, make sure that it's turned ON. If there's no DST switch you can force a manual change by changing the time zone setting, but you'll need to do that twice a year. Also note that if the clock is more than two years old, turning the DST switch ON will make the clock conform to the old DST changeover dates.

The time changed my clock did not


It did not catch the signal from the transmitter. Try re-locating it near a window, higher elevation. Also try changing the batteries if they are weak. Is it set for DST? If not, then it wouldn't change.

Atomic clock


There is a setting on the clock to turn on "DST"- daylight savings time feature. You have to push the set button on the back of the clock repeatedly until you see "DST" blinking. You should also see "OFF" blinking at that point indicating that the feature if turned off. If you now push "+" button on the back of the clock once it should show "ON" blinking instead of "OFF". Hope this helps.
