SOURCE: daylight savings time

The SCR 120 is NOT an atomic radio clock. It keeps its time with an internal computer, and an intermal program sets DST, using the old dates for change. Unless the manufacturer provides a software fix, I doubt that there's any solution.

SOURCE: Daylight Savings Times Changed

We set the time zone to '7' , which is Hawaii time zone where there is no change for daylight savings. This came up because it changed automatically on this morning...and although we can change it back, then it won't change next week when it should. So we're hoping that by setting it to Hawaii it will be a regular clock, we will do the changing...but at least we won't be surprized as we were this AM.

How can I set the time zone?


The DST is only based on GMT.

When daylight saving time (summer time) begins
The following models employ the Automatic Daylight Saving Time/Summer Time adjustment. The DST indicator in the display appears in the display at the beginning of the daylight saving time (summer time), and disappears at the end of it. Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment is based on GMT (Greenwich Mean Time).
• Summer time begins at: 1:00 AM on the final Sunday of March.
• Standard time begins at: 2:00 AM on the final Sunday of October

To cancel the Automatic DST/ Summer Time adjustment and
to set DST display manually
The Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment can be cancelled.
Press and hold DST for more than 3 seconds while the clock is displayed.
A beep sounds, and "Aut t OFF" appears in the display to show that the Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment is cancelled. The display returns to the clock.
Notes
• The change timing of Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment employed by the unit (see above) is subjected to variation by circumstances and the law in each country/region. In such a case, cancel the Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment and
set DST display manually as necessary. The customer who lives in the country/region that has not introduced the daylight saving time (summer time) must cancel Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment before using the set.
• To activate the Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment again, press and hold DST for more than 3 seconds. A beep sounds, and "Aut t On" appears in the display to show that the Automatic DST/
Summer Time adjustment is activated. The display returns to the clock.
• To change the display to the daylight saving time (summer time) manually, see "To change the display to the daylight saving time (summer time) indication."

How do i set a radio controlled clock seth thomas hd 1688


  • Place your Seth Thomas atomic clock face-down on a table or desk and locate a series of buttons labeled "PST," "MST," "CST" and "EST" on the back of the clock. Press the appropriate button to set the time zone.

  • 2

    Turn your attention to the small lithium battery-powered digital clock display on the back of your clock. With the correct time zone set, the digital display should accurately reflect the current local time.

  • 3

    Locate the AA battery compartment on the back of your clock. Put two new AA batteries into your clock's battery compartment.

  • 4

    Set the "Mode" switch on the back of your Seth Thomas atomic clock to "Run." Wait for it to adjust to the correct time. The automatic time-adjustment process can take up to 45 minutes, but is usually completed much sooner.

    Make sure that the clock is set for the correct time zone and that the DST (Daylight Saving Time) function is ON. Also, although not mentioned in the manuals, these clocks will typically jump and hour ahead or behind when the batteries get weak. Replace your batteries if they are more than a year old.

    Correct Time Zone


    Using the Emerson CKD5809C manual (also with SmartSet(tm) ), try Zone 4. TIME ZONE button: "04".

    Zone 1: Atlantic Time
    Zone 2: Easter Time (Default)
    Zone 3: Central Time
    Zone 4: Mountain Time
    Zone 5: Pacific Time
    Zone 6: Yukon Time
    Zone 7: Hawaiian Time

    Reference:
    http://www.emersonelectronics.ca/emerson/en/category/list/694
    or
    http://www.emersonelectronics.ca/emerson/en/product/details/2361

    As for disabling the Daylight Saving Time (DST) time change I have some guesses to try (not having one of these radios in my hand) or just skip to #4 below.
    1. Manually setting the time and see if this disables the DST change.
    2. Is there a Zone setting other than above? Like maybe a Zone 0? And then manually set the time.
    3. Look at http://www.fixya.com/support/t236208-daylight_savings_time_adjustment for my solution there and try adjusting the DST Start to the same as DST End or DST Start and End with a month of 0 (if that is possible).
    4. Or for the really desperate, change the Zone to 5 during DST and back to 4 during standard time (no worst off than with no DST auto setting.) (After I wrote this, I found an Emerson reference to no DST areas, Saskatchewan in this case, in the CKS1850C manual http://www.emersonelectronics.ca/emerson/en/product/details/2383, pg 9, and this is their solution.)

    Turning daylight saving time OFF


    If DST is *already* set to "on" when you reset the time zone to Z-07 (Hawaii), my very recent experience is that the time *still gets adjusted back* by one hour.  Now that daylight savings time is over (at least according to the clock's pre-programmed and outdated schedule) I'm hoping that setting the time zone to Z-07 (Hawaii) will completely cancel the automatic time changes from now on.  Otherwise, I need to purchase another clock, and it won't be a Timex.

    You can't adjust the Daylight Savings Time. I called Timex and they confirmed this.
