SOURCE: I have a wacky wake up timex alarm clock and can't

You press and hold down the time set button...once the time starts to flash you use the "fwd" or "rev" buttons to change the time to what you want it set to. The alarm is set the same way...just press and hold the alarm set button until the time flashes. :)

SOURCE: silicon scientific atomic projection clock did no ...

I have one of these, and look for the manual on the 'Net every time DST changes, and eventually figure it out. Here's how: (1) Hold down the ALM/SET button until you get past the alarm setting and you see 24H or 12H. (2) Step through the settings by pushing the ALM/SET button, changing each as desired by pressing the +/CYCLE button. Eventually you'll wind up with the time zone indication flashing (it's really tiny, and appears just below the time indication). Press the +/CYCLE until you get to the desired time zone. (3) After the screen quits flashing, press the -/DST button to get the desired setting. I hope this helps, and that I can find this post again next time change!

How to set time on GPS watch


From your comment I have no idea what watch you have! The more infromation you provide, the likelier it is we will have a solution. However, in general, watches cannot tell if you live in a spot on the globe that uses daylight savings time. You have to enter that information. Go into your settings and see if you can turn on Daylight Savings. The watch should set the time automatically at some point, occasionally takes some time. Only a part of the world uses daylight savings, invented by Ben Franklin to save energy(coal oil) just like today!

Clock is 2 hours ahead of actual cst time


If you have an atomic clock/watch that is not showing the right time, you could have one or two separate problems. First, the clock may not be set for the correct time zone. Second, the clock may have a manual switch to adjust the time for daylight savings time. Each of these problems can make your clock display the incorrect hour of the time, especially after you change the batteries and your clock "forgets" some or all of its prior settings.
Check the back of your clock to see if there is a button or switch to set the correct time zone. If your clock appears to be set to your time zone, change the switch to another time zone and see whether the clock moves forward/backward to adjust. Once it has finished adjusting to the new time zone, adjust the clock back to your time zone to see whether it will now correctly reset to display the time.
I have seen atomic clocks that have manual adjustments for these settings as well as ones that adjust automatically other than the time zone. If you provide the manufacturer and model number of your clock, we should be able to provide more detailed instructions.

Dpfellside@hotmail.co.ukwhat is actually meant by daylight saving time. my Citizen watch always indicates this setting is off (I am in U.K.)


Daylight savings time is primarily an USA thing. We set our clocks ahead every Spring in March and hour and back an hour in the fall. The idea was invented by Ben Franklin centuries ago to save energy and it is still done with the same idea in mind. Read elsewhere to see how it saves energy, debatable. Not all part of the country observe DST. Just turn it off and you should be fine. You may need to correct the time.

I have a Westclox, Calander Model 70026. I have set the clock several times to the correct time,(with the time zone at the proper setting) but, after a day or so, the hour reading, reverts back...


It's most likely because of Daylight Saving Time. Your clock receives a signal through the air once a day from the actual atomic clock, much like a cell phone receives the time from your cell phone service provider, and it automatically resets itself to the exact time each time it receives this signal. Remember that the middle of the year (the second Sunday in March until the first Sunday in November in the US) is Daylight Saving Time for much of the United States. The clock has an option that allows you to set whether you are observing Daylight Saving Time or not. If this is set to "off", the time will be one hour behind until Daylight Saving Time ends (November 7th). Make sure this is set properly, and your problem will be solved.

Casio wave ceptor wvq 202hdu ibver


I don't have wvq 202hdu but I have a waveceptor that had the same problem. After not being able to find a solution online, I went back and started playing with it and I figured it out on my wva-430a. Hopefully my instruction helps:

The problem is that the daylight saving time is set to ON (or maybe OFF) whereas it has to be set on Automatic (A). To change that on my wva-430a, I held the "Adjust/Display" button for three seconds. It showed "US 60" for me. Then I used the "Mode/Select" button to go to the next screen which shows CHI for Chicago (Central Time). Here you have to choose the city that corresponds to your time zone. Again by pressing "Mode/Select" it took me to the next screen which was the daylight saving option. The choices were ON/OF/A that could be cycled by pressing "Receiving/Set+" button. Set it to "A" for automatic. Then press Adjust/Display to see the last option for 12H/24H setting. Press Adjust/Display one more time to go out of the settings menu. Your watch should adjust itself immediately.
