No signal for Timex Atomic Wall Clock

  • Problem
  • Updated 3 months ago
I put batteries in a brand new 75322T clock and then let it sit for a couple days to pick up the signal. It never did. So I took the batteries out and tried again, same thing. I manually set the time, etc and set it aside to see if it would ever pick up a signal. It has not. I have tried several locations, no signal. I have two other clocks of the same model that show they are picking up a signal. What should I try next to get a signal?

Hello Susan,

You want to make sure you have the time zone set and the DST preference set to on if you observe daylight savings time. In the settings menu is where you will find these settings. There is also a setting to turn on the atomic signal. You want to make sure it is on. I have attached the instructions below. You want to have the back of the clock facing Colorado. It will help to put it by a window. The signal usually picks up better at night. I would recommend leaving it for 48 hours to see if it is able to obtain the signal.

Thank you for your reply. I had done everything you described above before contacting you. The funny thing is, right after I sent my question, it started receiving a signal. I put it back in the window again in hopes of it responding and it did. I had tried that several times and in different windows before that. I guess it just needed a longer time than normal to get online. Thanks for your help.
