I took the battery out to put in a new one. Would someone please help me reset the clock. It has 4 buttons on the back with time zone letters under the buttons. It automatically reset to 12:00 and stopped. thanks ,p.price
Figure out where yu are north south west east zones on your map from where yu are , then pull battery again it should stop at for eight or twelve push time zone then set in a window facing your zone it should automatically pick it up shortly in awhile
sw i think it may stop at four also but then wait

The SkyScan ATOMIC Clock With the Skyscan Atomic Clock, you have the most accurate timepiece within the continent. It can receive the time signal transmitted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), which is regulated by 3 atomic clocks and deviates less than 1 second within 3,000 years. The NIST broadcasts the time signal (WWVB, 60kHz) continuously from Fort Collins, Colorado. This signal can be received anywhere in the continental USA that long wave (AM) radio reception is possible with a portable radio. It is expected that the signal can cover a distance of over 2,000 miles from the transmitter. Therefore, your clock will receive the signal within the broadcast range anywhere an AM signal can be received; generally the signal cannot be picked up in massive metal and concrete structures unless near a window. In addition, some environmental effects (see next page) may affect the transmitting distance.
take the batteries out and leave them out for at least a minute. when you put the (new) battereis back in be sure that you have the correct time zone pushed and if there is a DST button or switch make sure that is pushed/set as well. place the clock with its back facing colorado and leave it overnight, it should reset itself ok.
taking the batterys out and leaving them out for 60 seconds or more will in effect reset the clock. Put the new batteries in and wait for the skyscan to detect the outside temperature (if this unit has a outside sender). after this show on the screen push the button that corresponds to your time zone. You can now set the clock with the push buttons or take the clock to a wall that faceing? ( you don't say where you are located), the WMV signalyou need to set the clockto is coming from Colorado USA ( if your in the us) so make sure the back of the clock is facing toward colorado. let the clock sit overnight as the best signal will be recieved when its dark and especially in the very early morning, just before sunrise. this should automatically set the clock for you. good luck
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.
Hi Time zone setting Language Setting The weekdays can be displayed in LCD1 with the pre-set languages: US English, French and Spanish. 1. Set the desired language for the weekday display in LCD 2 by use of the+key. 2. Press theSETkey to enter the mode“Manual Time Setting”.
Manual Time Setting In case the Skyscan Atomic Clock is not able to detect the WWVB-signal (disturbances, transmitting distance, etc.), the time can be manually set. The clock will then work as a normal Quartz clock. Note: In 12 hours mode the time will be displayed with an additional“PM”for the time from 12:00 noon until 11:59. 1. The hour digits will start flashing on LCD1. Set the desired hours by pressing the+key followed by pressing theSETkey. 2. Now the minute digits will start flashing. Set the desired minutes by pressing the+key . If the + key is held, the units will increase by 5. 3. Press theSETkey to move to the“Year Setting”. Note: The unit will still try and receive the signal every day despite it being manually set. When it does receive the signal, it will change the manually set time into the received time. During reception attempts the WWVB tower icon will flash. If reception has been unsuccessful, then the WWVB tower icon will not appear but reception will still be attempted the following hour. WWVB time reception takes place from 12:00 am through 6:00 am each day (attempts WWVB reception every full hour within this time frame). When the time signal is received for example at 1:00 am, the Skyscan Atomic Clock will not attempt to receive the WWVB signal for the remaining hours until 6:00 am. Therefore, the next signal attempt will take place between 12:00 am and 6:00 am the next day. The other times WWVB reception takes place, are upon setup and after manual time set exiting mode. Reception is generally not possible during daylight hours due to the interference of the sun.
