SOURCE: My digital alarm clock is fast

I'm not on this field of expertise but I could try giving you some tips. These cloks work by dividing the natural oscilations of a quartz cristal in the corresponding way to form "1 second". A quartz cristal like the one in your clock will oscilate at about 14080236 times per second. Your clock uses a specialised chip in order to count these oscilations and know they form "1 second". However, the problem is the following. These clocks doesn't compensate for frequency variation over the mains power line. You should always look firts at it's power ratings and determine if it requires 50Hz or 60Hz. Even if you use an adaptor to raise/lower the tension from 110 to 220 v or viceversa, this woun't correct the problem as the adaptor will leave the frequency unchanged. Unfortunately in order to make the required adjustments you woun't need a resistor or capacitor, but a whole bunch of them in order to make a frequency divider-convertor that's stable enough to give your clock a fixed time reference. One more thing, not all components have exactly the parameters noted on them. There's another thing called Tolerance. A 1Kilo Ohm resistor with 10% tolerance (most comon tolerance) can have any value with +/- 10% of it's noted parameters, and in this example, could have any value between 900 ohm - 1100 ohm. These clocks will need components with a very strict tolerance in order to have an acurate time reference. Note that they aren't atomic clocks, they simply use a larger chip that includes most of the clock, time reference, frequency analyser and divider. An atomic clock doesn't use quartz cristals, instead it relies on the natural oscilations of the very precise Cesium izotope atom. The rest of the atomic clock is made up in a similar way as usual clocks (more fixed and small tolerance of course :) ).

SOURCE: Breitling problem

This usually occur when the hairspring is disturbed ( some grease, dust particle, etc). Can be magnetized as well.
You need to find your nearest watch repairer and ask to overhaul your watch. After that it will run like new.

If the timer goes too fast you have to replace it.

SOURCE: power light on front of computer is flashing - quick blinks

Most desktops require you to hold the off or power button down for at least 5 seconds, or more, before it will actually turn of the power. If you don't you won't get the desktop to turn off properly and when you try to turn it on again, you will get a message to the effect that the PC was not properly turned off last time, and it will give you the option to turn it on in Safe Mode, Safe with DOS prompt, or Safe with networking or ... finally, normal mode. If all you did was not turn the power off holding the button for a minimum of 5 seconds, then turning it on normaly is okay to do.

SOURCE: two clocks are set at 6am one clock gains 30

Compute the difference in clock-speeds, namely 90 seconds per hour.
Convert the units of time: 30 minutes becomes 180 seconds.
So, divide 180 by 90 to get '2', namely 2 hours after the 6 o'clock "start" time, which makes it 8 PM.

P.S. There is at least one error in the above solution. If you truly understand the solution, make the necessary correction, and submit the corrected "homework" to your teacher.

Cloc gains time

well without the make and model number I can only answer generally , most clock radios use the power line to sync the time base (60 hertz=60 seconds = 1 minute=60 minutes=1 hour) , but they use a internal time base generator when running on battery back-up (that's not so accurate) , I had one some time back that a customer plugged into a switched outlet (unknown to them) in there room and it did exactly the same thing it gained about seven minutes every day , me id check the outlet its plugged into to see if its on all the time (a quick test 4 this is to remove battery back up ) clock will then flash to be reset if you come back later to see it when the power was shut off

On hipstreet maestro projection clock should dots be continually flashing?

When you say flashing I assume you are referring to the twin dots : between the Hours and the Minuets. If they flash every second that is normal, regardless of any type of digital clock.

Can you replace a danfoss TP9 with a honeywell ST699

I believe the TP9 is a programmable thermostat.

While it appears the ST699 is a timer that connects to a thermostat.

So yes, they both control 230Volt boiler-and-pump. But there are differences.
Google search each item and include .pdf in search parameter to find product manual for each, and then compare wiring differences.

I have a used JVC FS-B70 with no remote. How do I set the time on the clock?

To set the clock go to the link below page 9 will tell you how to set clock.

On the remote control ONLY:


The hour digits start flashing on the display.

2 Press UP or DOWN to adjust

the hour, then press CLOCK/


The minute digits start flashing.

• When you press and hold UP or

DOWN, the hour digit changes


3 Press UP or DOWN to adjust the

minute, then press CLOCK/TIMER.

The built-in clock starts.

• When you unplug the power cord or if a power failure occurs

The clock is reset to "AM 12:00" right away. If this happens, set

the clock again.

• The clock may gain or lose 1 to 2 minutes per month
If this happens, reset the clock.

The flashing dots cannot be turned off they flash on all of Miele's products with similar displays. Do they really bother you?

Replacing Honeywell heating progrmmer

yep the wires will hook up to the same designations, just write down what color was connected where. You will need to set the thermostat up for your particular situation...gas, electric, heat pump, ect. The installation maunel is very clear on this aspect so you should not have a problem.

Set the clock on my RP4801A clock/radio

Following are the instructions for the RP5610 which looks very similar to the 4801A (that I also have). The only difference in the instructions is that the 4801A doesn't have a clock icon, just press the SET button until the center colon dots are flashing, Press the rewind or fast forward arrows on the circle next to it to set the time. Set the alarms by pressing the set button until bell 1 or 2 is displayed. Nap is also set with the set button - not sure how to stop it yet.

To set the clock:
  1. Press the SET button until the clock icon is displayed (circle with hands at 10 and 2)
  2. Press |<< REV or >>| FWD to set the time.
  3. AM or PM icon will show besides the time.

How do you set the wake up? So the radio turns on automatically? each morning

I did not find my manual, but this worked for me. Set the clock to be a 24 hour clock by pressing and holding the Memory/Clock Adj button. The display will show 24h or 12h. Use the fast forward button to change from 12h to 24h. Press the Memory/Clock Adj button again and use the fast or reverse forward buttons to change the time to read, for example, 13:00 instead of 1:00 if the time is 1pm. Press the Memory/Clock Adj button again to set the minutes.When you are done setting the time, press and hold the Timer/Sleep button. Either a time or "0:00" will appear in the display with the word "TIMER" flashing above it. Quickly press and hold the Memory/Clock Adj button until the first digit in the time starts flashing. Set the hour that you wish the alarm to sound using the fast or reverse forward buttons, just like you do for setting the time. Press the Memory/Clock Adj button again to set the minutes, and one more time to finish. The word "TIMER" will stop flashing and go solid, and the display will return to the time of day. When the alarm sounds, you can hit Snooze which will give you 5 more minutes, or you can turn the Clock Radio off. Pressing the Timer/Sleep button again will turn off the timer (alarm) and pressing and holding it again after that will turn it back on.
