If you reference page 43 of the manual it tells you how to set the clock. I would first proceed to follow the steps and do the auto channel setup and then the auto clock setup.

Clock keeps working plus 1 hour Lexibook RP200GB set the time but every night it resets to 1 hour ahead can't find user manual please help


Hope this helps I had same irratating problem
1. The RP200 is designed to automatically synchronize its calendar clock once it is brought within a range of 1500km of the Frankfurt DCF77 radio signal. When the RP200 is brought within this range, its auto-control mechanism will override all manual settings.
2. The clock automatically starts scanning the RF 433MHz signal after new batteries are inserted in the main unit. When receiving the RF 433MHz radio signal, the Radio Tower symbol starts to blink. A complete reception generally takes about 10 minutes, depending on the strength of the radio signal.
3. When the reception is complete, the Radio Tower symbol will stop blinking and remain solid
4. For an optimal reception, place the clock away from metal objects and electrical appliances (i.e. television, computer, monitor, etc) to minimize interference.
Notes:
• The unit will receive the RCC signals every day at 2am.
• The RCC signal can also be triggered by holding the key for 2
seconds in time mode.
• When the unit is searching or receiving the RCC signal (which lasts
about 5 minutes), none of the keys is working except the key.
• Press and hold the key for 2 seconds if you wish to stop to the
RCC signal search.
If the RP200 is brought outside the range of the Frankfurt DCF77 radio signal or if the signal is interfered, please set the time and date manually according to the instructions below. If the unit is located within the radio-controlled range, you may want to customize some of the clock settings.
Note: When no key is pressed for more than one minute, the unit returns to time mode (time, date and temperature display
World Time Clock
This function allows you to adjust the clock to a time zone. It is
particularly useful for travelers. Set the clock to the city you are located in, or to a city in the same time zone.
1. In time mode, press [MODE] twice to select the world time clock.
2. Press the key to select the city in which you are located.
3. Press to adjust the summer saving time function.
4. Press and hold [SET] to set the world time as the local time. When the local time is the same as the world time, the icon flashes.

I am trying to check my timing for a 1989 f-150 with a 351w with fuel injection. i have an induction timing gun but i dont know what part of the computer i am supposed to disconnect . There is no vacumm...


First clean the balancer and find the timing mark, mark it clearly with a chalk ,or crayon, or liquid paper, 10 degrees BTDC. Get the engine warm, now remove the timing connector ( Its a little gray plastic connector near the distributor, its 2 pins) disconnect that , then start the engine and set the timing. Tighten the distributor, Check it again, if ok, turn eng off and reconnect the timing connector. you are done.

How to set the clock on vcr/dvd.


Make sure the antenna//cable TV connections are correct. Channels are set. If this unit is connected to a cable/satellite box, select the local PBS station on them to set the clock automatically.

There's an Auto Clock Setting. "This Unit can set the time and date automatically by reffering to a PBS station.". But I never had to do that, I just went to Setup and it already knew what the date and time was.

"Note: The clock may set itself automatically after you connect the antenna/cable signal and plug in the power cord. Only the analog PBS channel signal is effective for auto clock setting. The unit receives the clock data at 12:00 A.M./P.M. from the PBS channel when the power is off.

1 Press [SETUP] and use the up and down arrows to select "General Setting", then press OK.
"General Setting" menu will appear.

2. Use up and down arrows to select "Clock" then press OK.
"Clock" menu will appear.

3. Use up and down arrows to select "Auto Clock Setting", then press OK.

4. Use up and down arrows to select "Auto" then press OK.

5 Press SETUP to exit.

6. Press STANDBY-ON to turn off the unit.
This unit will search for the time only when the power is off. Leave it off for several minutes to give this unit time to set the clock.

If the unit chooses an incorrect PBS channel, set the PBS channel manually by following the steps below:

1. Select "Manual" at step 4, then press OK.
2. Use [the number buttons] or up and down arrows to enter your PBS channel number, then press OK.
3. Press SETUP and turn off the unit.

If this doesn't work, let me know and I'll type up the instructions for what to do if you need to actually set the clock manually.

from the list.

Auto clock setting
Preparation:
You must connect the antenna or cable before connecting
the AC cord to the power source.
Wait 30 minutes with the power turned off, after the
antenna or cable is connected, for the auto clock
feature to activate.
After the clock is set automatically, you may have to set
the time zone and daylight saving time. (See page 26.)
Press STANDBY/ON to turn on the DVD/VCR after the
auto clock operation completed.
• When shipped from the factory, the “AUTO CLOCK”
option is set to “ON” position.
• If you turn the DVD/VCR on during auto clock
setting, the clock is not set.

is unsuccessful, select the PBS channel carrying
the XDS information, then turn the DVD/VCR off.
After 30 minutes, turn the DVD/VCR on.
• If the clock is not set automatically, set the clock

STANDARD TIME (Time zone)
In the rare event that you live within the broadcast range
of two stations in two different time zones, the DVD/VCR
may recognize the wrong station for the auto clock set.
To correct the situation:
Select “STANDARD TIME” and select the time zone from
the list below.
Selectable time zones and correction times
ATLANTIC: GMT – 4 hours
(GMT: Greenwich Mean Time)
EASTERN: GMT – 5 hours

set to “AUTOMATIC”.
• After making the auto clock setting, in some cases
the clock may display another time zone. You can
correct the clock by selecting your time zone
setting above.
• When the clock is not set or you set the clock
manually, the time zone setting is not available.

SAVING TIME” and select “ON”, while to cancel the
daylight saving time, select “OFF”.
ON: For manual setting (forward 1 hour)
OFF: For manual setting (back 1 hour)

first Sunday in April you set it to “ON”, and on the
last Sunday in October you set it to “OFF”.
• When shipped from the factory, the “DAYLIGHT
SAVING TIME” option is set to “AUTOMATIC”.
• When the clock is not set, the daylight saving time
setting is not available.
• When there is no daylight saving time in your area,
always select “OFF”.

Can't change the clock time


Best Solution posted Nov 6, 2008, by Guest -- worked for me. Wondering what the DST is? -- Daylight Savings Time. There will be a button at the bottom right in the date OFF. Apparently the TV Guide programing does not work that well, especially with the new Digital boxes now need to receive over the air TV and the TV Guide programing never worked with Satellite TV. Wil this feature ever be up dated? I doubt it. It would be nice to have the digital box and your dvr cycled together.

Error U99 disc stuck in machine


Neat Things

I have also discovered a number of special things you can do using special key presses. These have not been documented in any of the user manuals. As an aside, one time I was trying to manually set the clock. There is an automatic clock setting mechanism, but it's never correct. Even if it is, if the program you are recording starts 1 second early, it looks like it started at "8:59 pm" instead of "9:00 pm". The way I set the clock is 30 seconds before the top of the minute (At exactly 30 seconds after 9:00, my clock goes to 9:01). This way, you will have a ±30-second window at the top of the hour to get the time-stamp correct. At any rate, I was trying to set the clock manually, but that function was "grayed out". I tried the "Reinitialize Settings", but that didn't help. I tried to change the TV-Guide settings, but that didn't help either. I tried to switch between cable and TV, but that didn't help (and somehow even that became grayed out). I called Panasonic Tech Support. I was told that my system RAM had gotten corrupted and I had to send the unit in for service! This made no sense to me. I asked her if there wasn't a way to clear the RAM back to some starting point. I was told there wasn't, and please send the unit in for service. Well, as it turns out, there IS a way to do that! (See Commands) Another time, I (somehow?) managed to make the DVD Drive tray "Lock". If I tried to eject a DVD, it would display "LOCK" and refuse to open. At least this time, when I called tech support, I was told what to do - but it really should have been in the manual.

Commands

To toggle the disk eject from "LOCK" to "UNLOCK": With the unit ON, press and hold "Power" and "Stop" for 5 seconds.

To eject a disk if the unit won't operate (U99, etc.): With the unit OFF, press and hold "Power", "Stop" and "Channel Up" for 5 seconds.

To initialize ALL parameters to factory defaults: With the unit OFF, press "Skip Rev" ( |<< ) and "Time Slip" and "Open/Close" for 5 seconds.

To enter "Service Mode": With power off, press "Stop" and "Time Slip" and "Open/Close" for 5 seconds. "SERVICEMODE 00" is displayed.

What follows are the more useful commands you can perform. You use the remote to key in a 2 number value. You can usually return back to the "Service Mode" by entering "00". If you get stuck, hold the power key for 10-12 seconds or until the unit shuts off. Try to avoid unplugging the unit while in service mode. In fact, because losing power while writing to either the hard disk or a DVD-R or DVD-RAM can lose everything, I use a small "UPS" (Battery backed-up Power Source) to power my units. This way, if the AC Mains go out, I don't damage anything…

Oh, and DO NOT experiment with any number combinations that aren't documented here. If you do, you may wish you hadn't…

00 = Return to Service mode start.

02 = Display Firmware Versions. The display will show the following for 3 seconds each:

1. DVD Region Code (should be Region 1 for USA)

2. Main Firmware Version (0950DL, or something like that)

3. Timer firmware Version (0110DC, or something like that)

4. DVD Drive firmware version (J125, or something like that)

5. ROM checksum (I think) - It should be all zeroes.

The ROM checksum will remain. You can get back to Service Mode with 00.

41 = The number of hours the laser in the DVD drive has been active.

51 = All display segments are turned on. Use 00 to exit.

61 = Date the unit was manufactured. YYYYMMDD

To exit Service Mode, hold the power key for 10-12 seconds until the unit shuts off.

DMT-E95 can not set time


Two options.
Select Auto - You will need to plug in a coaxial standard TV antenna for the auto clock function to receive an atomic clock pulse. After a few seconds (sometimes minutes) it will display the correct time. Once the time is displayed you can disconnect the TV antenna if you want.
Or, select Manual then OK or Enter - Then use your arrow keys on the remote to set the time.

I would always recommend auto mode. If you don't have a TV antenna you can poke a miniature screwdriver in the coax socket just to get a clock signal.

Instruction manuals are available online, if you Google you'll find one.

Set Clock Greyed out


I have the same problem - clock set is grayed out. Called Panasonic tech support .. this is the solution I was given. It works, but too bad the root problem can't be fixed (bug ridden unit).
Solution is to "reset" the unit - then go back into the menu system and set the clock. How to reset the unit (don't worry - anything on the HD stays intact):
1) go to DVD mode
2) remove any DVD in player & close tray
3) on front panel, behind door - press & hold BOTH channel up & down keys for 5-10 secdons -- until you see a message that the system is rebooting
4) wait till it reboots, go back in the menu and set the time.
