I bought a travel alarm clock by Westclox. Have had it 6 months or so. I threw out the instructions, of course. It has a trouch screen that displays the time, alarm, date, and temperature. The only thing I can change by touching the screen is the temperature from C to F. How do I change the time and alarm?
After selecting either TIME, DATE, or ALARM at the top of the screen, use the stylus to touch and hold the large time display. Hold it there for about 5 seconds and the clock will beep and the time display will start flashing. Then you can touch either the hours or minutes and it will increase by either 1 hour or 1 minute accordingly. When the DATE is selected, it shows the year in the large display. Again, holding the stylus on the year diaply for about 5 seconds will enter into the chqange mode. IN all cases, to exit the change mode simply select one of the other selections across the top: TIME, DATE, ALARM.

Travel alarm clocks can have varying
instructions, depending on the type of clock you are using. Here are
some tips for use that will apply to any alarm clock.
Travel alarm clocks will need to
have some sort of power source. Depending on the type of alarm clock,
it might be battery-powered or it might have a cord that needs to be
plugged in. Battery-powered alarm clocks can take mini watch batteries,
AAA batteries or sometimes AA batteries. Travel alarm clocks, because of
their tiny size, usually have the small batteries that need to be
bought from a watch store or a dollar store. Before you leave, make sure
you have a working power source and can turn it on.
Changing the time
After you reach your final
destination, power the alarm clock on. Now you'll need to set the time
and date correctly. Check a watch, cell phone or television to get the
exact time and locate the buttons or dials on your alarm clock. On some,
there will be a "time" or an "hour" button you need to press and hold
to activate the alarm time change. While you are holding it down, turn
the dial, press the hour button or press the (+) button until you notice
a time change. On others, simply pressing the hour or minute button
will let you change the time shown.
The AM/PM option is critical in
setting your alarm clock correctly. Make sure the LCD display on your
clock has a light beside the correct AM or PM setting, or look for the
letters AM or PM on the display. If you get this wrong, the alarm won't
go off in the morning!
Setting alarm time
To set the alarm time, look for a
button or a switch that says alarm. If there is a switch, move it to
the alarm setting. If it is a button, you'll need to hold it down until
the time starts flashing, signaling time to change the hours and minutes
to the desired alarm time, or hold it down while you press the hours
and minutes buttons to reach the alarm time you want.
Turn alarm on
Now double-check that your
regular and alarm times are correct by switching the switch back and
forth again, or by pressing the alarm/time buttons long enough to read
the time set. There should be a picture of a bell somewhere on your LCD
display showing that the alarm is set to "on." If there isn't, look for
the on/off alarm button and move it to the correct position.
The last step is finding the
alarm wake-up option. Not all travel alarm clocks have this option, but
if yours does there will be a switch or button that lets you choose to
wake up by a buzzer, the radio, a CD, or another device.
According to the product manual, press the 'ALARM ON/OFF' button on the back of the clock until the bell symbol and 'Zz' disappear from the display screen. These symbols are between the hour and minute digiits, above the colon ( : ).
If you would like to see the instructions, they are in .jpg format:
I bought one of these for $3.00. I found it in the clearance sale aisle at my local Wal-Mart. The instructions refer to it as being an "Automobile Clock."
In the instructions, "M" refers to the "Mode" button, "S" refers to the "Set" button, and "D" refers to the "Date" button. These are the instructions that came my KATEC #38 travel alarm clock:
1. In normal mode, there will show hour, minute, second and week. Push "D" to show date and push "S" to show alarm-time.
2. Adjust alarm-time: Push "M" two times to enter into alarm mode. Push "S" to choose hour and minute. Push "D" to adjust the right time. Finally, push "M" to return.
3. Adjust real time: Push "M" three times to enter into adjust time mode. Push "S" to choose second, minute, hour, day, week, and month in order. Push "D" to adjust correspondence number for right volume. Finally, push "M" to return to norm-al mode.
4. Sport Function: Push "M" for one time into sport watch function mode. The beginning state is show as 0:00:00. Push "D" to enter into recording time. Push "D" again to stop. Push "S" to return to the beginning mode 0:00:00.
5. Adjust ON/OFF alarm mode. In normal state, push "S" and "D". You can choose alarm on or off. When alarm operates, the alarm symbol will be displayed on.
While holding down the snooze bar that says "ALARM" on it, hold down either of the "HOUR" button to set the hour when the alarm should go off or hold down the "MINUTE" button to adjust the minutes for when the alarm should go off. Switch the "ALARM" to "ON" when done.
