Slide the Wake 1/Wake2/Clock switch to the Clock position. Then press the forward button to advance the clock by the needed amount of time. Then slide the switch back to the side with the key icon.

If you set the DST switch to ON, you can move the time zone switch to one time zone further east for a few weeks until the DST change in the program takes effect. Then move the time zone switch back to your current time zone. (Repeat this in the fall to correct for the later change in DST again). The exact length of time between when DST starts and ends versus when the clock will change the program will depend on when the clock was manufactured. Clocks built after July 2006 should have the correct DST programs. Clocks from earlier have a much shorter period of DST (April through Oct).

I hope this helps.

How do I set my clock back an hour? It is the wrong time. My daughter set it ahead not realizing that it would change itself for daylight saving time.


Most digital clocks do not have the ability to move backwards. It is simply a matter of moving the clock hours forward 23 hours and you will be right back where you want to be. I hope this helps.

This clock is an automatic set clock and it is 15 minutes ahead in each timezone and is not able to be reset by us


Press and hold the "Alarm Set" button for five to seven seconds and the year will begin to blink when the clock is ready for adjustment. .

Set the year by pressing the right-arrow, "Up" or "+" button, depending on your model of clock.

Set the month, day, hour and minute. Press the "Alarm Set" or "DST" button to cycle through each field, and use the "Up," "+" or right-arrow button to adjust the values within each field.

Press the "Alarm Set" or "DST" button after setting the date and time to store the information into your clock's memory.

Press alarm 2 to change from Celsius to Fahrenheit.

Press alarm 1 to change from 24 hr time to 12 hr time.

My clock went back one hour on Sunday 10/25, need to get it to move ahead one hour.


The clock program for Daylight savings Time is programmed for the old "third Sunday in October" changeover. The new changeover is the first Sunday in November. The program probably cannot be updated. If there is no button or setting to disable automatic change to Daylight Savings Time you can set the time manually and then change it manually to Daylight Savings on November 1 for the time to be correct.

Setting my clock,model88000/86601


For any Equity clock, press and hold down the Alarm Set button. First the year will flash, if you don't care about the year, press the Alarm Set button again, if you do care about the year, press the arrow button (it could be an UP/DOWN arrow or a side arrow which is usually used to change from Centrigrade to Fahrenheit).
Basically, you begin by pressing and holding the Alarm Set button, then you use the arrow buttons, then again press Alarm Set to go to the next thing you want to set. If you wait too long, it will not set it, so begin again. I do this all the time, esp when DST occurs as the clock, when manufactured did not have the rules for the new DST time.

Change time zone


To change the time zone press and hold the time zone button until the number after the Z in the display flases and then release the button (number will still be flashing) and then press the same buttoon and you will see the Z number change to the zone you need. The zones are printed on the top of the clock under the top lid that pops up. My problem is we are in daylight savings time and I cannot get the Eastern Time zone to let me "spring ahead one hour" for daylight saving time!

Need operating instructions for RCA clock radio Mod. 5430


The instruction manual will not help you, because it doesn't address this problem head on.  You're having this problem because the time changed, and the clock has an automatic setting.    As long as the batteries are in the clock and it's plugged up, it automatically computes the time. I just discovered the solution.  Unplug the clock, take out the batteries and WAIT about an hour.  Plug it back up, and the time will flash, allowing you to change the time.  You do this with the button on the top back which says wake up 1 and wake up 2.  Push that button all the way to the right to the setting that looks like a little clock, then press the forward button on the top of the clock to set the correct time.  Then put your batteries in and you're good to go!  (til the time changes again:)  Good luck!
