Press "+" once,

My clock has been on for months. But the time is now 2 minutes different from my cable tv time. Also 3 minutes different then news Chanel's time. I just changed it to match the cable.

My SkyScan atomic clock model# 86715 does not show the signal


I have the same model. Make sure you have good batteries and move the clock away from any electrical equipment. Since WWVB broadcasts at a frequency of 60kHz, this could be a harmonic of 60 Hz.

If all else fails, remove the batteries, take the clock outside and reinstall the batteries. If you do this at night you should pick up a signal..

I just had to move my clock out of the computer room and it picked up the signal at noon.

Good luck

Atomic Clock by SkyScan model # 28600. Clock


It does that until it receives a signal. Leave it overnight and it will probably get one. Instructions for this clock are at skyscaninfo.com

The outside temp sender won't work. We put new batteries in it, but it does not send a signal. It will not put an outside temp on the clock.


Simple, the instructions state that when changing the batteries on the outside temp. sensor, you must also change the batteries on the main clock unit. I had same problem when I changed the sensor batteries until I pulled the batteries from the clock and it reset fine. ( Sensor batteries first, then clock batteries. ) The clock will reset to atomic time overnight so don't worry if it doesn't read correctly at first.
