Hello Gerald,

You will need to set the time and date manually. The steps are as follows:

To adjust the currently selected (flashing) item, press and release the “UP ARROW “ or

“DOWN ARROW “ buttons (press and HOLD to fast adjust

To save your adjustments, press and release the “GEAR WRENCH ” button again to adjust

the next preference. The preference set order is as follows:

LANGUAGE (English, French)

TIME ZONE (EST, CST, MST, PST, AKT, HAT, NST, AST)

AUTO DST CHANGE (YES, NO)*

WEATHER TICKER SPEED (SLOW, MEDIUM, FAST)

CLOCK HOUR

CLOCK MINUTE

CALENDAR MONTH

CALENDAR DATE

CALENDAR YEAR

TEMPERATURE UNITS (°F or °C)

WIND SPEED UNITS (mph, km/h, knots)

RAINFALL UNITS (inches or mm)

PRESSURE UNITS (inHg or hPa)

*If you live in an area that observes Daylight Saving Time, DST should be set

to YES, even if it is not currently Daylight Saving Time.

You will automatically exit SET MODE if no buttons are pressed for 20 seconds.

Enter setup mode at any time by pressing the “ GEAR WRENCH” button.

If this does not correct the date and time for you, please let us know. Thank you. Enjoy your day!

Hello Gerald,



The following instructions should help resolve any issuesyou are having with your display.

To do a factory reset: (THIS WILL CLEAR ALL OF YOUR HISTORY AND YOUR SETTINGS)

Please verify that you are using a name brand (Rayovac or Energizer) standardalkaline batteries in the display unit. We do not recommend using anything thatis heavy duty, rechargeable, store brand or Lithium inside of the display.

- Remove all power, AC adapter and batteries, from the display unit.
- Press and hold down the pin hole reset button, located in the batterycompartment, for 20 seconds.
- Plug back into AC power and insert recommended batteries.
- Press and hold down the pin hole reset button for an additional 20seconds.
- Verify that the unit has powered on and once connection has been made,attempt to set time and date.

Then try to press the gear wrench button to get the settings to come up. Thank you. Have a great day!
