20 Most Recent La Crosse Radio Controlled Atomic Clock - Page 7 Questions & Answers


The best solution to all these Zenith clock radio problems is to just throw the damn thing out and go to WalMart and buy the cheapest " anything but a Zenith" that they have.

There are many LaCrosse atomic clocks. Which model do you have? Support for most is available here: http://www.lacrossetechnology.com/support/home.php . Use the drop down menu to select the model.

For the analog clocks, there is a manual set button on the back of the clock. Press the button and wait for the clock to advance to the correct time. Then make sure the correct time zone button has been pushed. Then make sure the clock is in a location where it can hear the signal overnight. (For best results stand the clock upright in a window.)

For WT-2165U travel alarm, press and hold Set to enter the setting function. Then select the time zone (with + or -) then press and release Set. Set the DST setting to on or off as needed, then press and release Set again. The next setting option is the snooze alarm duration. Press and release Set again to change the hour manually (+ to increase). Press and release Set again to set the Minutes. Correct the date (year, month, day, day of week) similarly. Then set the display to 12 or 24 hour time. Press and release Set to finish and exit the set functions.

For some of the digital clocks you can set the time manually by pressing and holding Set. First set the time display mode (12/24), then press and release Set again. Then set the hours, followed by Set and then the minutes. Continue through other menu options or just do not press any buttons for several (30) seconds.

On the digital clocks, the item being changed will flash.

To avoid interference with the signal reception, 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.

I hope this helps.

When the battery is installed the second hand will advance eight seconds (2 seconds per step x 4 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.

You don't set the time. You set the Time Zone and it sets itself.

What model is YOUR clock?

This site lists several models of La Crosse wall clocks with downloadable instructions.

The Time Zone may not be set correctly.

Your particular clock probably has an identifiable control for selecting the time zone you're in.

Remove the battery and replace with a new one. Just because.
Depress the tab on the back of the clock mechanism firmly (it pushes in a button beneath it) 22 times. While you're pressing the tab, the hands will begin to rotate. They will stop at 12 , 4 or 8 o'clock.

Place the clock in a window where it will be able to receive the radio signal.

Next morning the clock should have re-set to U.S. Pacific time. Press the on the clock mechanism that corresponds to your time zone and you should now have the correct time again.

Mine does the same thing. I contacted the manufacturer and they told me there's nothing I can do to fix it. They suggested I return it if it's under warranty (which it isn't). With no warranty they said there is no way to repair it.

The clock must be perfectly level - check that with a spirit level. If you don't have one then a wire with a weight attached should do.
When you swing the pendulum for the first time try to swing it at it's normal movement angle, if it's too high or too low the mechanism will not be able to sync with the quartz and the clock will not work.

The clock actually receives the radio signal on it's own, you don't need to transmit the time to the clock on your own.
