After replacing battery all display came up OK except the hour

The default time zone is Eastern Time (EST, also GMT-5). There are 25 Time Zones
to choose from. The selection will cycle from GMT-5 (EST) to GMT-12, then
GMT+12 to GMT +1, then GMT, then GMT-1 to GMT –5 (EST).
1. Hold down the TIME ZONE button for 2 seconds or until a time zone
abbreviation and “ZONE” flash in the LCD.
2. Repeatedly press and release the TIME ZONE button until the
appropriate Time Zone is displayed.
3. Wait 8 seconds for the automatic time-out to exit the time zone
selection mode.
Through the WWVB signals, the watch automatically adjusts for Daylight
Saving Time. The default (factory) setting is Daylight Saving Time On and
12-hour Time mode. To change this mode:
1. Press and hold the TIME ZONE button for 4 seconds
2. “DST ON” and “12h” will be displayed in the time LCD.
3. Press and release the TIME ZONE button to select the desired mode.
4. The four selections are:
DST On, 12-h
DST Off, 12-h
DST On, 24-h
DST Off, 24-h
5. Wait 8 seconds for the automatic time-out to exit the DST On/Off,
12/24-hour time selection mode.
NOTE: At this point your watch will begin searching for the WWVB signal.
This will always occur after entering the DST On/Off, 12/24 time mode setting.
You can manually enter the WWVB signal search mode by pressing and
holding the TIME ZONE button for 4 seconds. This will bring up the DST
On/Off, 12/24-hour time mode selection. You now can either select the DST
On/Off, 12/24-hour time mode you wish to be in, or wait 8 seconds for the
automatic time-out to return to the time display and begin searching for the


Problem: No WWVB signal (indicated by the absence of the WWVB tower icon).
Solution: 1) Check the selected Time Zone. If it is set between GMT+1 and GMT
+12. The WWVB signal will not be received because the watch is
programmed not to search when outside of the range of the WWVB signal.
Change the Time Zone to one of the time zone of the U.S and the watch
will again search for the WWVB signal overnight.
2) Move watch 10 feet (3 meters) away from any interfering sources, i.e.
electrical appliances (refrigerators, TV’s, computers), metal surfaces or
3) To help with overnight reception, place watch in a window with the
band inline with the general direction of Ft. Collins, Colorado.
4) There are a few places the signal is very weak (Los Angeles area, Some
parts of Florida and New York City). Since the watch has a much smaller
receiver than our other clocks, it is possible no reception can be made.
Please inform La Crosse Technology in this case.
Problem: The hour or minute is incorrect, even though the tower icon is on
(indicating a successful reception of the WWVB time signal the previous
night) and it is set to the proper time zone.
Solution: 1) Electrical interference caused the time signal to be improperly received.
Be sure the watch is at least ten feet from any source of electrical activity
(television, computer). Overnight it should correct itself.
2) You may need to perform a manual

How do I set a LaCrosse WT-961 (B) watch?

This watch automatically sets itself. I you live in the eastern time zone, you just have to wait for the watch to receive the signal then it will set itself to the correct time & date. The signal is strongest at night between the hours of 10:00 pm & 2:00 am so it normally takes over night to set. Sometimes the weather interferes with the signal so I tell people to give them a couple of days to pick up. Also if you are having trouble receiving the signal try placing the watch by a window. If you do not live in the eastern time zone try these instructions:

Hold down the button for 2 seconds until the time zone abbreviation & zone flash the keep pressing the button until your correct time zone is displayed. Then wait about 8 seconds for the watch to return to normal display. Then you just have to wait until it picks up the signal & sets itself. I hope this helps.
