You can Set the Clock in this way:
1. Press the HOUR button until you reach the correct hour.
2. Press the MIN button until you reach the correct minute.
3. Press the HI/LOW button to choose between high and low clock brightness.
Note: An LED light (PM indicator) will appear in the upper left hand corner of the clock face during the PM hours. Be sure to set the time for the correct 12-hour period - AM (morning) or PM (evening).

I hope I helped.

Hi elph37,

Try opening it from the bottom, and removing the internal PCB's. The Buttons will be situated against the roof of the cover. Just remove and clean each button individually. There might be grime keeping the button stuck, or it has shifted to an off center position.. Anyhow, this procedure should fix the issue.

Kind Regards

Hmmm well yes it indeed indicates that this must not be done, as if it is it will often ruin the unit, as i suspect it has in your case, indeed it is now a paperweight, sorry. The battery removal removes the memory setup contents and once removed it "Forgets" all the settings.
