You're not supposed to set the time -- it's supposed to synchronize with the US atomic clock broadcast automatically. Perhaps putting it in a different area of the house, or turning it to a different orientation will help it make the initial connection.
If it still won't, here are instructions from one of the LaCrosse models... use them or go to http://www.lacrossetechnology.com/clocks/atomic-digital/wall/
and find your particular clock, then download the instructions.
------------
MANUAL TIME SETTING
In case the atomic clock is not able to detect the WWVB-signal (disturbances, transmitting distance, etc.), the time can be manually set. The clock will then work as a normal Quartz clock. Note: In 12 hours mode the time will be displayed with an additional "PM" for the time from 12:00 noon until 11:59.
1. The hour digits will start flashing on LCD1.
2. Set the desired hours by pressing and releasing the + key followed by pressing the SET key.
3. Now the minute digits will start flashing.
4. Set the desired minutes by pressing and releasing the + key . If the + key is held, the units will increase by 5.
5. Press and release the SET key to move to the "Year Setting".
Note:
The unit will still try and receive the signal every day despite it being manually set. When it does receive the signal, it will change the manually set time into the received time. During reception attempts the WWVB tower icon will flash. If reception has been unsuccessful, then the WWVB tower icon will not appear but reception will still be attempted the next hour.
WWVB reception occurs daily at 12:00 am and 06:00 am. If the reception is not successful at 12:00 am, then the next reception takes place the next hour and so on until 06:00am, or until the reception is successful. If the reception is not successful at 06:00 am, then the next attempt will take place the next day at 12:00 am.
The other times WWVB reception takes place are upon setup and after manual time set exiting mode. Reception is generally not possible during daylight hours due to the interference of the sun.

I need to change the atomic clock from military time to standard 12-hour format...can't find original manual...have owned the Radio Shack clock for 5 years.


Hit the set button until the number 24 shows up instead of the time. Hit the "+" button once, and it will switch from 24-hour to 12-hour display. Hit the set button to cycle through the rest of the settings.

Need instructions on 'programming' my Sharp SPC900 Atomic Clock. It has lost sync with the satellite and didn't automatically catch up with DST.


I don't know about your atomic sync problem. But here is how you can set the time zone:

Push the Time button once. This will change the Month/Day window to Alarm 1. Push the up button until the desired time zone is reached. Push the Time button twice more to return back to Month/Day display.

Every atomic clock in my house shows a different time!


They all receive the same signal, but it sounds like you're in an area where the signal can't get through. Check to see if your clocks have an icon that indicates signal reception (most do). If your clocks cannot lock onto the signal you may need to place them outside for a few minutes every few months.

Resetting the atomic clock to the correct time zone, and outside temp to work.


For the Sharp SPC374T Atomic Clock - Time Zone setting- Press the 'Time' button once, the time zone will show where 'Day' usually is, use the Up or Down buttong to adjust.

For the outdoor Thermo, credit to my neighbor for this one. Remove battery from main unit, wait 2-3 minutes. Reload batteries. Once you get a reading from the outdoor sensor, hit the reset on the main unit. You will have to reset the time zone as described above, but this worked for me after 10 months of no outside temp showing up!

Good luck,
Doc
