Question about Philips AJ3225 Clock Radio

1 Answer

Time lag. Hi, The clock tends to slow down by say 5 minutes every hour or two. If I set my time along with my Titan time piece and the watch the previous night, the next day morning when I look at the time on my radio clock, it is almost half an hour late or behind the real time. Please advice.

Unfortunately, this is an innate problem with this device. Philips has a newer lineup of AJL models that operate on an atomic clock - real-time.

IMPORTANT! To adjust the clock and alarm times accurately, always make sure
you press the up-up or down buttons separately and not simultaneously.

How do I adjust the clock when it's running slow?


If your cuckoo runs too fast or slow, the best way to correct this problem is to set your cuckoo to an accurate watch or clock. After 24 hours, record how many minutes your cuckoo is running too fast or slow. Then adjust the bob up or down the pendulum stick to change the pendulms effective length. You'll need to take an educated guess as to the distance. Reset the cuckoo minute hand time to your watch or clock again. Repeat this process every 24 hours, recording the results, and readjusting the bob until you are within 3 minutes of the correct time. Then, switch from recording every day to recording every week. Use the same process described, recording the time difference, adjusting the bob up or down every week, until the cuckoo is accurate within approximately 3 minutes per week. Remember, mechanical cuckoo clocks are not as accurate as quartz or electric clocks! A three minute error per week is not bad. Maybe you can do better. What you are attempting to do is to obtain is the best timekeeping possible from your cuckoo clock. Afterwards, you will still need to sychronize the cuckoo (coo coo) clock minute hand to an accurate clock or watch, each week or as desired.

How do I set the clock in the radio?


Typically, you have to hold down a "Time" or "Clock" button, then press either a fast or slow button and hold it until the display reads the correct time. Some models have hour and minute buttons instead of fast or slow, and a few have a slide switch that you move to the clock adjust position (it would also have an alarm set position) before the hour/minute or fast/slow buttons are enabled. Some clocks reset to 12:00 AM if you hold Clock, Fast and Slow all at the same time. You'll just have to experiment a bit to find out what works on yours.

How to set time, hours and minutes


Of course it depends on the brand and model of clock you have, but most digital alarm clocks will have a Time Set button, a Minute button, and an Hour button. Usually, you will need to press and hold down the Time Set button and use the Hour and Minute buttons to change the time. Sometimes there are no Hour and Minute buttons, so you would use the Up and Down buttons to change the time while holding the Time Set button.

How do you set the time? I figured out the alarm clock but can't find a way to set up the time.

MINUTE button (Fig. 5) until you reach the correct minute.
NOTE: PM indicator will appear on the left side of the clock face for evening hours (Fig. 5). If the
PM indicator is not illuminated, the hour is set to AM. Be sure to set the time for the correct
12-hour period - AM (morning) or PM (evening).
NOTE: After 5 seconds, the time will stop flashing and it will be set.
