It could be a temporary, weather-related, problem, or it could be related to a number of other factors: new construction in your area, a new RF source (radio transmitter, cell tower, etc.) in your area, etc. Your watch contains a small radio receiver, and determining the exact cause for its failure to receive the WWVB signal is nearly impossible. About all you can do is try the watch at different locations in the home, and you may have to turn it to face in different directions. Mine, for instance, syncs best when hanging from a drawer and facing in an east-west direction.

DST was set in the wrong setting. Change it and it should correct itself overnight.

The easiest way to reset it would be to change it to Eastern time - that will give you the correct Central DST.

Press and hold the SET key for 5 seconds. Press set key repeatedly until TZ is displayed on the bottom. Use the "+" key to set the time zone. -8 is for Pacific Time Zone, it will display -8 PST in the display. Press set to go to the DST setting, and so on until you've cycled through the options.

Successful reception of the time-synchronization radio2_bing.gif signal is indicated by a radio waves icon to the right of seconds in the upper section of the display. After synchronization occurs, you can select your continental U.S. time zone (EST, CST, MST, or PST) by means of a switch on the back of the clock.

I keep the outside unit of our in/out set under a coffee can shaded under a bench; one could argue the aesthetics but shielding it from wind and sun is mandatory otherwise one can get record temps pretty often.
The outside units generally transmit to the receivers only every few minutes to keep battery consumption down so moving them won't necessary gie you an immediate change.

There are a few ways to do that. It depends on the connections the tv and the converter have.

1st way is to take a coax jumper from the box to the tv coax input. Coax meaning cable wire that screws on like the wire coming from the outside to the box.

2nd way is to use red yellow white tri-cable, or audio visual cables if the tv has them as inputs, the color of the ends is the same as on the input ports.

3rd way is to use a component cable. These are the 5 connectors bunch which have 3 video and 2 audio and go to the same colored component video in.

remove everything to get to the hands, remove the top hands only leaving the one, carefully apply crazy glue (tiniest sliver) to the hand where it meets the shaft. Adjust that hand for one minute after the current time. wait about 15 seconds between each hand. Apply the others remembering to set the others to the exact time. let it dry and you should be done.
