Clock setting not saving

I have just bought this camera but I cannot seem to get the clock to save. Every time i turn the camera on it asks me to set the clock. Sometimes the clock even resets when the camera is turned on. I am certain I am following the instructions correctly in setting the clock. This problem is very annoying as i do not want to have to return camera. I would be very grateful for any solutions somebody can give me...

This link will give you the user instruction manual for your camera; Page 19 describes the clock setting procedure - first check that you are doing everything as described, especially the "press menu button 2 times after finishing the setting" If you still have no luck, then unfortunately there is a problem with the internal clock/settings battery/cell, which should normally charge from the main battery enough for 3 months - on this camera, the internal battery is not a user replaceable item, but your warranty should allow you to get it replaced free. Sorry if bad news, hope it helps :)

How do i reset the 24-hour time to 12-hour time on a Brookstone alarm clock

Dozens of models to choose from. All questions on Fixya need 'make model (what it is)' as the first 3 words.

Here are some guesses. The 'control cover' is where you put the back-up battery.

To change the 12/24 hour time format, open the CONTROL COMPARTMENT COVER on the bottom of the clock and adjust the 12/24 TIME FORMAT switch to the desired format .

Setting time with your JVC VIDEO CAM.

Sometimes we are lazy enough to read our users manual, we want it easy and quicky. For this reason this is common issue to JVC camera users find hard on setting their camera's clock and calendar. Setting is easy but saving your setting is tricky. So set your camera's date and time the usual way and make sure to switch off your camera first completely and remove power(battery or ac adapter) to have your setting save. Next time it will not ask you to set again until internal clock battery expires.

Changing time from daylight savings on my TIMELINK plug in house clock model 88141

To change the time on your TIMELINK plug-in clock model 88141 for daylight savings, follow these steps:
  1. Locate the "Time Set" button on the top or side of the clock.

FFCM1155US manual clock set instructions do not work. Pressed Clock button. Pressed in time. Pressed START. When I press start the display goes black. Tried pressing clock button again but time doesn’t...

Is your oven in power save mode? Does oP-4 scroll across the display? The power save mode turns off the time of day clock display according to page 17 of the user manual. If power save is turned on to turn it off press the clock/options 4 times (if op-4 appears in the display then press clock/options 4 more times to turn off power save mode. Then you should be able to set the time of day clock by pressing clock/options ONCE enter the time and press start. Hope this helps.

I can not set the clock on my i river reader it keeps going back an hour after i set it help please

Do you have your PC set to automatically adjust for daylight savings? If so, try turning that off and setting your clock forward one hour manually. Although it seems that this would cause your clock to be one hour behind if the setting software isn't adjusting the clock setting for savings time.

Sharp Atomic Clock Daylight Savings

I have misplaced the manual for my sharp Atomic clock, need to reset the time zone and shut off the alarm. How can I obtain a new manual?
Mar 10, 2008 • Baby Gear

Turning daylight saving time OFF

If DST is *already* set to "on" when you reset the time zone to Z-07 (Hawaii), my very recent experience is that the time *still gets adjusted back* by one hour.  Now that daylight savings time is over (at least according to the clock's pre-programmed and outdated schedule) I'm hoping that setting the time zone to Z-07 (Hawaii) will completely cancel the automatic time changes from now on.  Otherwise, I need to purchase another clock, and it won't be a Timex.
