When you put in a new battery, the hands advance to the hour and stop. It then waits to receive a radio signal and sets the time.
to do a manual set, insert the battery and hold down the M button until the correct time. Don't go past it or you will need to continue until it comes up again. There is no reverse.

The previous answers don't fit the HD-1688 Sheng Bang clock mechanism that I have.

On the Sheng Bang HD-1688 make sure you remove the locking pin from the back. It keeps the gears from moving while in shipment. Insert a new battery. Set the timezone switch to Pacific, Mountain, Central, or Eastern. Set the daylight savings switch to "On" unless you're in a state that doesn't observe it (Arizona, Hawaii...) The second hand will sweep to the 12:00 position and the hour hand to the 4:00 position, and the minute hand to the 12:00 position (I think. It may sweep to the 4:00 position too. The instructions aren't clear on this point). Place the hour, minute and second hands onto the clock shaft in that configuration. Press the "REC" button for five seconds to force the mechanism to seek a radio signal. Make sure you're near a window for best reception. It may take an hour or more for the clock to find a good signal. This works best at night.

Anon, replace battery with a good strong AA Energizer or Duracell Alkaline not a cheap battery, make sure battery contact point in clock are clean and no corrosion. If this does correct the problem, the clock mechanism is probably just wearing out from age which is normal unless it is digital. Read through the links and learn how some time mechanisms can be made to work properly again. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

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.

    I have a quartz president wall clock, I changed the battery and set the time OK but the chime needs setting and I have no instructions as it is a very old clock


    These are general quartz wall clock instructions as I dont know enough about what type/style of clock you have.
  • Open the access door to the dial and hands of the clock if required. Some battery-operated clock movements are sealed inside the clock case with a back panel that is screwed in place. To gain access to the hand set knob, remove the back panel screws using the appropriate tipped screwdriver.
  • Turn the minute hand (or turn the hand set knob at the rear of the movement if access is available) carefully counterclockwise or clockwise until the correct time is reached. Keep in mind that using the hand set from the rear would require turning the knob in a clockwise direction in order for the hands to turn counterclockwise.
  • Move the hour hand carefully with your fingers near the center of the hand to the hour that the clock is striking if the striking chime is not counting the correct hour. The hour hand is a friction fit hand and will move without engaging the minute hand.
  • Replace the back panel and tighten the screws with the screwdriver if removal of the back panel was necessary to access the hand set knob.
  • Close the front access door if required.

    Quartz president wall clock, I need to set the chime


    I have a pendulum wall clock from the president collection. If yours is the same or similar, the following may help:
    *Look at the back for a slide switch labled "start" at the top and "set" at the bottom and move it to "set"
    *Look for for small push buttons. They represent the hours and minutes. Push each in turn, the number of pushes to represent the time, ie, for 09:45, ignore the first(0), push the second 9 times(9)-push the third 4 times(4)- push the 4th 5 times(5). When done, push the slide switch back to "start".
    If yours is the same as mine - a wall hung pendulum clock with Westminster chimes, made around 1988. I would be happy to scan and send a copy of the instructions.
