Hands rotate endlessly onatomic clock wt 3143


If you have not talked to La Cross and if you continue to have the problem, most likely it may be a signal problem. I had a similar
problem with an earlier model and found that it only worked on
the west facing wall as the signal is coming from WWVB which is the NISTtime signal radio station near Fort Collins, Colorado. Get a fresh battery, reset the clock, put it in a west facing window and leave it overnight. If it doesn't work, contact La Cross as above post.

If the router has "N" value it should run a good distance away, even to the neighbors home. If "G" 30 Feet to 50 feet max.
40 Feet is difficult if passing through thick walls or steel buildings. If it is not an "N" router, then you need that or an Extender system. See TigerDirect for hardware replaements.

Hot to set tide clock


Hello


To set up your clock simply install one fresh AA, LR6 ALKALINE battery. Due to the nature of long wave radio signals it is normally not possible to receive a signal during the day so it is best to install the battery late in the evening. Select your time zone by pressing one of the four time zone buttons PT-Pacific Time, MT-Mountain Time, CT-Central Time, ET-Eastern Time. The time zone buttons may be pressed any time after installing the batteries. If multiple buttons are pressed the clock will set to the time zone selected last. If no time zone is selected the clock will default to Pacific Time. Another time zone can be selected during or after the clock has set itself. Your clock can only set itself to one of the four time zones stated above. For time zones outside of PT, MT, CT or ET you must manually set the time using the Manual Time set button on the back of the movement.
When the battery is installed the second hand will advance eight seconds (two seconds per step x four steps). The clock is now searching for a signal. For the initial setting it is recommended to stand the clock in an upright position near a window. Within five minutes the clock will either receive the WWVB signal and set itself to the exact time, or it will determine that the signal is not receivable at its current location and time of day. If a signal is not receivable it will fast-forward the hands to the 4, 8, or 12 o'clock position and search for WWVB each

hour until a signal is received. If the time is manually set the clock will continue to periodically search for a signal and automatically reset the hands when the signal is received.
Select a location to place your radio controlled clock where it will be at least six feet away from a TV, computer, air conditioner or other household electrical appliances. The optimal location is near a window. Windows facing Colorado providing the best signal. The WWVB time signal will easily penetrate Masonry and wood framed buildings. WWVB will penetrate almost every residential building and most steel buildings if they have adequate windows. It is not possible, however, for WWVB to penetrate most indoor shopping malls and rooms in the center of large office buildings that do not have windows. In buildings that WWVB cannot penetrate you may set the time using the manual time set button. When the clock is exposed to the WWVB signal it will automatically set the hands to the exact time.

Since DST started I cannot get my radio controlled clock to reset to the actual time. I replaced the battery and now the clock will set itself four hours from the time it stopped, then stop again. i have...


take the batteries back out and leave them out for at least 2 minutes. next put the batteries back in and put the clock near a wall or window so that the back of the clock faces colorado (where the WMV transmitter is),. It will most likely take all night for it to set properly, just after you put in the battery make sure that you have set your time zone on the back of the clock and if there is DST button press that too. just be patient, it will set itself. worse comes to worse you can set it by hand, but kind of defeats the purpose of having an "atomic clock". by the way the reason they call it "atomic" is becausee WMV's clock is tracking the decay of the Seisum atom, or some such bs.

Is there a way to vent a basement bathroom without cutting into the cement foundation


What is in the room above the basement bathroom?
And how large is the diameter of the vent pipe you need to run?
Do you have a maximum number of elbows, and runs of feet maximum you can't exceed?

Is the Frame wall above the foundation, accessible by going up thru the ceiling of the bathroom, and the elbowing over and into the outrside frame wall at that point?-- and then up a ways, and then out thru the outside wall?

Another possibility would be: How far to a window, or vent already in the basement?-- Could you run the piping there, and then out?

How thick is the concrete wall?-- Is it reinforced Concrete-- or just Masonry Block wall? A block wall is not as hard to get thru--

I know I asked a lot of questions-- but maybe it helps you think thru your options?

Le4t me know if I can help further.

I have an extension in my house where the bricks are flaking and crumbling. its not rising damp as the bricks are very dry. the worst affected areas are just under the window sills. Please help Vladimir


Check all round the window and ensure a good seal with the brick and sill [use silicon sealant at the joint between the window frame and the brick & sill and brick] and that the sill has a drip bar [ridge or channel under the sill running sideways at the furthest away from the wall] If not put one on the underside. Almost anything will do [sounds silly but an elastic band will do temporary or even a line of the silicon] so long as it collects the drips from the sill. also ensure that the sill slopes downward & away from the wall
How old is the extension ?? I ask because if it is 50+ yrs you may have lime mortar which lets the bricks breath and if this has been re-pointed later with non- lime mortar [i.e. portland cement mortar] any water which gets in above will not escape out through the lime mortar below.
Secondly, if this is a north or east facing wall getting little sun and if the bricks were originally not good, frost & freezing will cause the flaking.
Bricks - has the wall been built with facings or commons. commons will spoil [flaking] sooner.
Do your bricks have a frog. That is a hollow in the middle [& looks a bit like a cake which has sunk in the middle] The frog should be facing down otherwise water will collect You can only check this by taking a brick out [applies mainly to modern bricks ]

88900 Atomic Clock does not read time and temperature.


Batteries must come out of both the temperature sensor (transmitter) and base (clock and temperature display). Leave out for about 4 minutes. Replace the batteries in the temperature sensor FIRST and set it about 5 - 10 feet away from the base. Replace the batteries in the base and leave them both set without touching any buttons for at least 15 minutes (usually only takes 5 minutes or so). The temperature should start to display. You can set the clock manually to the correct time and have it get the updates via radio in the evening or night. Should work after all this just fine. (have done it alot of times this way over the years)

Good luck.

Skyscan 34202 Projection


I doubt there is a way to change that, but it's also not clear which way it's supposed to go anyway.  Mine projects "right side up" if you are facing the same direction as the clock is facing - that is imagine you are looking away from the face of the clock.  It is upside down if you are looking at the clock's readout.  One way to solve the problem would be for you to turn the wheel of the projector to make it face the opposite wall.  It will then be right side up.
