    What happens exactly, does it completely lose the time where you have to reset it at start up or does it lose hours or minutes? And you say it's plugged in?

If the clock is losing hours but the minutes are correct, then make sure you have the time zone set correctly. If you have to reset the time and date at start up, them the C-mos battery is shot and needs replacing. The C-mos is under the battery. It's in a yellow pouch with two wires leading to a connector. In order to get to the connector you will need to remove the keyboard. You can get a new one at Bestbuy or possibly Radio Shack.

My GE Clock radio doesn't keep time. Radio is working. Have I pressed a wrong button ??


There are basically three types of electronic clock.
Quite old-fashioned are those that use the frequency of the mains electricity it is plugged into as a means of approximately keeping time. For practical purposes this type is more accurate than most mechanical types but may lose or gain a little and need adjusting from time-to-time.
If this type becomes unreliable there is nothing the user can do about it and an engineer would be needed or perhaps the garbage or recycling would be a better place.

The second type is the now very common quartz type where the clock circuitry keeps time by being triggered by a very accurate quartz crystal oscillator.
These types are generally so accurate it is worth providing battery back-up in case of power failure as well as preserving alarm and reminder settings.
If this type becomes inaccurate it indicates a problem with the circuitry and again recycling is probably the most practical option, though accumulated damp and dust inside can affect the delicate circuitry which might be restored to accuracy after a thorough internal clean.
I once had similar trouble with my clock radio which was caused in this instance by me forgetting how to operate it correctly. Spending a half-hour playing around with it refreshed my memory so in future I will remember when I have set the alarm to return the display to the clock.

The third type of clock is the radio controlled type that is set and keeps time by receiving a radio signal from a national atomic clock. They can do strange or unusual things if the signal is not being received properly or the clock is faulty but there is usually a function for setting the time manually though in my limited experience these aren't clocks for everyone and they aren't suitable for every location.
Good luck!

How do I set the time zone? It run out of battery so when I changed it, the time zone is pacific and I need to change it to mountain time.


To change the time zone, open the control compartment cover on the bottom of the clock. Locate the "Time Zone" switch and set it to the appropriate time zone for your area. Six time zones are programmed into your clock, "A" for Atlantic, "E" for Eastern, "C" for Central, "M" for Mountain, "P" for Pacific and "H" for Hawaiian. Once you've chosen the correct time zone for your Brookstone digital desk clock, you must select whether you want the clock to operate using the 12-hour or 24-hour format. The clock is set to the 12-hour format by default. If you'd like to change the setting to the 24-hour format, locate the "Time Format" switch on the bottom of the clock and flip it to "24-hour".
You can also decide whether to turn your clock's automatic Daylight Savings Time feature on or off. If you turn the feature on, your clock will automatically move forward by one hour at 2:00 a.m. on the first Sunday in March and fall back by one hour at 2:00 a.m. on the first Sunday in November. To choose your preference, locate the "DST" switch on the bottom of the clock and flip it to "Autoicon1.png" or "Off".

My computer time and date keeps resetting itself to a different time. I'm connected to the internet but that is all. Why does it do this?


the clock microchip inside you motherboard is run by a small lithium battery model # CR2032 ( the size of a small coin) this is embeded in the motherboard, this can be replaced with a new one by removing the PC's cover and looking for it on the motherboard .....once replaced the clock can be re-set to the current time....once the machine displays the Desktop screen....

When I change batteries I loose date/time etc.


There isn't another battery built into it. From what I undersatnd once you have placed batteries into the camera or connected the AC adaptor into the camera for 2 hours the camera will retain the date/time settings for 6 hours.

If they haven't been in the camera for two hours and you remove them the camera will loose the settings. If they have been in the camera for over two hours the camera will keep the settings for 6 hours. This leads me to think that a capacitor on the board inside the camera charges up for two hours and then slowly discharges over 6. Hope this helps.

Setting a Citizen Chronograph watch


assuming the battery isn't dead (IF IT IS DON'T TAKE THE BACK OFF, YOU WILL LOSE THE SPRING THAT MAKES THE ALARM SOUND) the button on the bottom right click it until the function selector is pointed to time, then pull the button out, then the top two buttons i believe change the hour hands. before setting the time you will need to zero this watch out, or calibrate it or the date will not change in synch with the time at midnight.

my battery is dead and i am a truck driver and am therefore having a difficult time (no pun intended) finding a place i can get parked to have my battery changed. please believe me when i tell you that you will lose this spring, a jeweler lost mine once and it took months to order a new one

After a power outage, my clock no longer has right time


You need to reset the microprocessor in the Clock/Radio. to do this you must unplug the Clock/ Radio and remove the battery. Let the Clock/Radio set for at least 1 hour to discharge the microprocessor. You can then reinsert the battery and plug in the Clock/Radio. The functions should return to normal. If you are still having a problem, try changing the battery (CR2430) and letting the Clock/Radio set unplugged for a longer period of time. If all this fails, you can call Emerson customer support at this telephone number 1-800-898-9020 between the hours of 7am-5pm CT and ask them for assistance. I hope this information help you with your problem.
