Question about Audio Players & Recorders
The Centrios Atomic Desk Clock has the 4 time zones shown for North America & at the moment, it is set to Pacific time zone. I have tried every combination on the back of the clock to change the time zone to Eastern - but have failed to do so. The Cetrios clock has a diplay for time,day,date year & temperature & you can change the time via satelite. I have set the clock to a different time than currant one, & bypushing receive button on the back, the time will correct itself - but to Pacific time. Therefore, the clock is 3 hours behind us.Adjustments on the back are from left to right-mode,set,adjust,receive & snooze(clock can also be used for an alarm clock.On the back of the clock is the namr - CENTRIOS & the cat No.is631-6006. THe description says it is a desktop clock with indoor thermometer. Clock is made in china for ORBYX electronics. It says that CENTRIOS is a trademark of ORBYX ELECTRONICS. Many thanks in advance for looking at problem. Fred Borgman
Here is how you adjust the time zone:
1.) push MODE till "AL" appears after the minute.
2.) tap "SET" (tap means push but do not hold) and time zone will advance.
3.) THE TRICK: The Time Zone can only be set in the Alarm Mode. Make sure you so not push and hold "SET" until the hour flashes as you would to set the alarm time. You just go into Alarm Mode and tap "SET" to advance the Time Zone by one zone per tap. When the Time Zone is where you want it, tap MODE to return to the clock and set the correct time.

I found a PDF manual for this clock at:
You can't turn DST on/off, but you can set the time manually. Silly for a "self-setting" clock, no?

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.
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.
Locate the AA battery compartment on the back of your clock. Put two new AA batteries into your clock's battery compartment.
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.
