SOURCE: Casio Wave Captor Watch wont set to correct time.

You need to manually adjust or set the hands to the home position as they are not where the watch thinks they should be. This can happen when you bring your watch close to a strong magnetic field. Look in the manual to do this. Afterwards your watch should set to the correct time.

SOURCE: atomic watch

You most likely don't have the Daylight Savings Time (DST) set to AUTO mode. Just hold the ADJUST button until the time starts blinking. Then hit MODE and DST will show on the top. Hit RECEIVE as needed until you see AUTO in the bottom. Then just hit ADJUST 2 more times and you're set.

These instructions are actually for my Casio G-Shock MTG-900 but I imagine they're very similar for most G-Shock atomic watches.

SOURCE: Casio WV58A-9AV Atomic Watch Signal Symbol

When the logo is not shown in the bottom corner, the watch hasn't got a signal yet. put your watch on a window sill, and hold the Forward buton until the watch says GET! Form there, the watch will either display ERROR, if it couldn't find a signal, or will have the latest and most accurate time. The watch is also probably set up for auto detect, which is best. To do auto detect, before going to bed, the watch will try to get a signal from 12 midnight, to 5 in the morning.

My atomic watch is 5 minutes slow, do not know how to change the time to the correct setting


I would suspect that your watch is not picking up the radio signal to reset itself to the correct time. There are several reasons for this - the battery might be very low, or you are in a poor reception area, or you are just too far from the transmitter, or the hands need realigning. If the watch claims to pick up multiple transmitters, then be sure that it is set to the correct one. Try taking off the watch at night and placing it face-up on a window sill to give it the best chance of a signal.
I can't offer anything other than general advice as you do not give the make/model of your timepiece. Some radio-controlled watches have a facility to realign (or 'zero') the hands - again, can't be specific without more information.

I need instruction for a lifemax ladies watch


For Lifemax watch instructions, go to http://www.rnib.org.uk/shop/Pages/Category.aspx?Category=talking_watches
and select the model of Lifemax watch for which you require instructions.
When that product page opens, scroll down to find 'product instructions'. Click on that to open the instructions in a Word document (you will need to have MS Word or the free OpenOffice suite to read it)

Will not recieve atomic time.My other casio atomic


This watch will set it's self in a 24 hour time frame. You need only set the time zone your in.

If it does not correct it's self change location in your house. It receives the signal at 0200 0400 and 0600 for the correction.

The transmitter is located in Fort Collins, Colorado. this station transmits the time codes2_bing.gif and is best received at night.

Hope this tip helps

I have several of the both watches and clocks and love them.

My Stauer Atomic won't stay connected to time signal


These watches only need to see a signal several times a day, not necessarily continuously.

If it keeps good time, don't worry about it.

How do you set the hands? The digital time is correct...


You do need to take it to the jewery watch repair.If you go to the flea mkt there are alot of vendor that would do it while you shop and the price is very cheap.They have the tools to remove the hands of the watch.You cant do it yourself because some are attach with pressure and if you tighten too hard the hands will not move or they will fall out...

Casio 4305 battery change problem


You don't say whether it has the minutes right and the hour wrong or if both are wrong. If it's just that the hour is wrong, you need to set the time zone.

Atomic clocks and watches have a "zero" position. Your manual should tell you how to "zero" the watch and what the time should be when it is zeroed. Each manufacturer is different. I have one that points to 3:00 and one that points to 12:00. If you zero your watch and it doesn't point to the right position, you will need to remove the movement from the case and manually move the hands to the zero position.

Been there, done that.

The user guide is wrong


I have a Theorema Parago Automatic through not wearing it regularly it sometimes stops. Winding it wouldn't solve the problem and I couldn't find a solution either on the Theorema site or online so through a series of self help efforts the following is the solution for this watch 1 Set the watch to the correct time date day etc. 2 Wind the watch using the side winder for about 40 revolutions in clockwise rotation 3 Hold the watch in your right and strike it firmly into the stiff palm of your left hand. This gives the winding mechanism a shark shock and kicks it back into life.The watch then works away without a problem.
