Sharp Atomic Clock

Clock starts adjusting the time to the atomic standard and never stops until I pull out the battery. Then is advances to midnight and starts up correctly at the correct time.

    Thanks for your reply.

    If your clock is in a place where it cannot receive the sync sygnal it will not be able to sync up. Have you tried placing it in a window facing Bolder Colorado to see if it will work then?



    I have since noticed that when the clock loses sync it advances to 4:00, 8:00, or 12:00 and waits for the sync signal. Now the second hand has stopped moving and I suspect that it is stuck on the crystal and the clock has started working. My hypothesis is that the second hand was getting stuck and then freed itself but after that it would never go to the 12 o'clock position to wait for the sync signal. I plan to take the clock apart this weekend and see if I can bend the second hand so that it will not touch the crystal.

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.

The invicta 4048 is an atomic watch with 4 buttons only. I need to know how to set this watch. Previous experts have refered me to the standard Invicta instructions PDF. The atomic watch is not covered...


The Invicta Atomic 4048 is "discontinued", and Invicta is not very helpful. They do NOT offer an instruction manual for the 4048, because it's discontinued. You can call Invicta at 800-327-7682 then you have to ask for "Melvin" who only works until 1PM eastern time. OR you can do the following:
Hold down the 8 0'clock button until it flashes, select 12hour or 24hour preference, use the button at 4 o'clock to select your time zone (GMT) The watch should reset itself to your GMT time.

My casio 3054 Waveceptor atomic watch isn't adjusting to atomic time even thought I placed it by a west window at night.


It's depends on where you are. For instance, where there is no time signal radio station, your (radio-controlled) watch can't turn itself (adjusted to atomic time).

Hands won't sync up


It sounds like the time zone may be incorrect; check your manual to see if this can be the case. Also, these devices may wait until some time between midnight and 3 AM to synchronize with the 'atomic' standard. Make sure you have the watch near a window as this may aid reception depending on where you live.

I live in Eastern Time Zone. My atomic clock shows map of USA in top right hand corner and it is set in Western Time Zone. How do I reset to Eastern Time Zone? I have had atomic clock for several years. I...


The "mode" button is there to change the function of the + & - buttons.

If you press the mode button several times you will cycle through the various setting features of the clock.

Look for the one that sets the time zone and use the + or - buttons to select your zone.

Some experimentation may be required!

Casio WV58A-9AV Atomic Watch Signal Symbol


When the logo is not shown in the bottom corner, the watch hasn't got a signal yet. put your watch on a window sill, and hold the Forward buton until the watch says GET! Form there, the watch will either display ERROR, if it couldn't find a signal, or will have the latest and most accurate time. The watch is also probably set up for auto detect, which is best. To do auto detect, before going to bed, the watch will try to get a signal from 12 midnight, to 5 in the morning.

Setting atomic receiving mode


There are two three-bar displays on this watch.
The three in the top left will always show only one bar (or possibly no bars).  The top left indicates the level of charge in the battery and not the atomic receive function.
The three in the bottom right are related to receiving.  The atomic receive is controlled from settings.  With the time displayed, hold down the ADJUST button for several seconds.  Once the timezone name (e.g. LAX) starts flashing at the top, release the ADJUST button and press MODE once to get to the DST control. Press MODE again to get to the Atomic receive control.  Use the receive button to switch ON->OFF->ON... Press ADJUST twice to exit settings mode.

Atomic watch


You most likely don't have the Daylight Savings Time (DST) set to AUTO mode. Just hold the ADJUST button until the time starts blinking. Then hit MODE and DST will show on the top. Hit RECEIVE as needed until you see AUTO in the bottom. Then just hit ADJUST 2 more times and you're set.

These instructions are actually for my Casio G-Shock MTG-900 but I imagine they're very similar for most G-Shock atomic watches.
