Model: Automatic Setting Analog Clock
All or some of the symptoms may be present.
Clock hands stopped and not set to correct time.
Clock hands remain at 12:00 position.
May result when initiating a Hand Alignment Check or Manual Signal Test.
The button on the back of the clock has two purposes, to initiate a Manual Signal Test or Hand Alignment Check.
Manual Signal Test: to be performed after a clock has been set to the correct time. To initiate a signal test, press and immediately release the button once. The clock begins to beep once per indicating it’s communicating with the Transmitter and continues to beep for one minute. Once the minute lapses, the clock goes silent. You can continue this process as needed during troubleshooting.
Hand Alignment Check: to be performed after new batteries are installed. Once the batteries are installed, press and hold the button for at least three seconds. The second, minute and hour hands begin to rotate clockwise and stop at 12:00. If the hands do not stop at 12:00 the hands are out of alignment, the clock may need to be replaced.
Perform a clock reset.
Remove its batteries.
Place a paper clip, pocket knife blade or another metal item across the two battery contacts located on the outside of the battery holder at the 9 Volt Battery style connector for a few seconds. This discharges any residual current from the clock mechanism and provide a fresh initialization for the clock.
Stretch the battery contact tabs in the battery holder out. When the batteries are re-inserted, the tabs apply more pressure to the battery contacts.
Reinsert the batteries or new batteries if expired (typical battery life is 4 to 5 years).
The second hand begins advancing one second and pausing as the clock searches for the channel and frequency (signal) the Transmitter is broadcasting at.
Once it receives a signal, it rapidly spins the second hand to 12:00 and stops. Next, the hour and minute hands advance toward the correct time, the hands pause for approximately five seconds at a displayed hand position of either 4, 8 or 12 o'clock (whichever of these positions falls just before the actual time). The minute and hour hand begin to advance to the proper hour, minute and second hand is last to the proper second.
