Question about Casio Wave Ceptor WV57HA-1AV Wrist Watch

1 Answer

Can't receive atomic signal

I have a Casio Waveceptor, WVQ560SGA7AV, and cannot get it to receive a signal from the atomic clock. I am familiar with the common problems in this regard, since I have 3 other Casio atomic watches, as well as 2 atomic wall clocks. I've had these others for as long as 4 years, and have never had a problem receiving a signal anywhere in my house. In fact, I keep my 3 other watches in a bag in the closet when not in use, and they all reset automatically while in there.

I just got this new one, however, and have tried all around my house, outside my house, at night and in the daytime. It will not receive when I try to do it manually, or by itself at night. I bought the watch new a few days ago, and it was running, but 10 seconds slow. I had no problem resetting it for my time zone and DST, but it is still 10 seconds slow. I have a chiming Seiko atomic wall clock, and all my other watches' second hands hit the 12 at exactly the same time the Seiko begins striking the hour.

This is a truly beautiful watch, and I really want to keep it. Any suggestions?

My Waveceptor time is not being updated by a radio signal. It appears that I am not receiving the radio signal. I have tried outside but still no reception. Ideas?

Probably the battery is running low. That way the radio signal reception maybe too weak. You can try to manually receive the signal.
Download the manual from the link below (the module number is on the back of the watch).

What does the red circle mean on a CASIO WV200A watch?

The red circle is the strength of the receiving signal for time calibration! The 3 sectors are to measure the strength of signal! 3 is max strength and 0 is no strength!

My casio 3054 Waveceptor atomic watch isn't adjusting to atomic time even thought I placed it by a west window at night.

It's depends on where you are. For instance, where there is no time signal radio station, your (radio-controlled) watch can't turn itself (adjusted to atomic time).

Will not recieve atomic time.My other casio atomic

This watch will set it's self in a 24 hour time frame. You need only set the time zone your in.

If it does not correct it's self change location in your house. It receives the signal at 0200 0400 and 0600 for the correction.

The transmitter is located in Fort Collins, Colorado. this station transmits the time codes2_bing.gif and is best received at night.

Hope this tip helps


I have several of the both watches and clocks and love them.

Casio WV300da ( #3023) won't get atomic time

The manual mode rarely works, because you have to be awake to do it and most of the time the best signals are from 1am to 3am in the morning.
