The singing bird clock not working right.
Question edited to what I think you meant to say :>D
Change the battery for a new one. check that the hands of the clock have have enough clearance to pass each other. It sounds like they are clashing at 1:05. Press the hour hand on and then the minute hand. If they are metal, you can bend them a fraction. If it still does it, send it back.

I have an instant digital scale capacity 1000 grams. I cannot get it to calibrate. Is there a reset button or goes can I fix this. Putting new batteries in now to wait answer.
Question moved from Cars and Trucks to Scales.
Home scales are not capable of being calibrated. They are done in the factory to a fairly strict standard. Only commercial scales are capable of recalibrations and that has to be done by a technician, stamped and certified by certificate.
The closest is a 'Tare' which guarantees zero. Normally, press on, and momentarily press On again.
Unless you have a certified weight, you have nothing to calibrate against. Even a pound of butter or 2 pounds of sugar, is an approximation. You would need an old scale shop keepers weight with the lead filled hole in the bottom, with the numbered, certified stamp impressed into the lead.

Sterling & Noble wall clock minute hand has fallen off. How can I put it back on?
Unless the clock is an older traditional 'clockwork' mechanism most clocks have a sealed unit as a mechanism so you shouldn't damage anything.
Some clocks can be dismantled from the back, usually with small screws or spring clips. You remove the clock face and mechanism as One piece. Once removed, the hands are usually a push fit so should pull out. The Second hand, then minute hand and the hour hand nearest the clock face.
If you need to replace the mechanism they are held on with a small nut on the face of the clock. These mechanisms are usually quite cheap to buy and easy to fit.
