20 Most Recent SkyScan 86709 Atomic Wall Clock Questions & Answers

I just changed the batteries yesterday. It was hard to open the battery compartment with bare hands/finders. I used flat screw driver to poke into the notch in the center of the transmitter. Or you can try poke into any **** around the compartment. It works!

I just fooled around with the settings on the back of the clock and now I think I have it. It may or may not work.

When was the last time it was serviced? The movement probably needs a good cleaning and/or oiling.

Simple, the instructions state that when changing the batteries on the outside temp. sensor, you must also change the batteries on the main clock unit. I had same problem when I changed the sensor batteries until I pulled the batteries from the clock and it reset fine. ( Sensor batteries first, then clock batteries. ) The clock will reset to atomic time overnight so don't worry if it doesn't read correctly at first.

I don't know about your atomic sync problem. But here is how you can set the time zone:

Push the Time button once. This will change the Month/Day window to Alarm 1. Push the up button until the desired time zone is reached. Push the Time button twice more to return back to Month/Day display.

Depending on which country you are in (the UK won't reset for a couple of weeks yet), your clock will automatically reset when it receives the adjusted time signal. If your clock is not receiving the signal, try moving it near a window and away from any electrical interference, or it is possible that your battery is getting low and has not got enough power to receive the signal.

Try temporarily locating it in a different location until it picks up a signal, usually around a window.

There should be a button labeled "C/F" to change the temperature. I don't own that brand, so I'm not sure if it's on the transmitter or on the receiver unit. Here is a link to the owners manual:
