Will Your Gadgets Turn Their Clocks Back in November?

It’s Time Again For Another Time Change

Clock clip art   Last year (2007) was the first time in 20 years that new days were established for changing to Daylight Saving Time and back to Standard Time. Chances are you survived last year’s changes and discovered how many of your gadgets that were set to adjust automatically didn't because they were programmed for the wrong date. The problem is unless your device was upgraded to use the new dates your clocks will not change automatically on November 2nd at 2:00 AM.

 What's The Problem?
In the days of analog time keeping devices it wasn't a big deal to move the hour hand once around the dial. Today the average household has at least 5-10 devices with digital clocks; everything from computers to VCRs to thermostats.
Compounding the problem is the fact that many devices have been programmed to automatically reset the time on the day the time change normally takes place. Not only will the clock not be changed on the correct day but will change automatically again on the wrong day. Be sure to check the time again on the old dates to make sure the time doesn't get automatically changed.

Using Retrevo to Set Your Clocks

Although some of your gadgets can get time updates over the airwaves or cable most will require manual setting. Retrevo can find the exact page in the user manual for most consumer electronics products like digital cameras, camcorders and VCRs. From any page on Retrevo.com you can enter the product name and model along with a phrase like “set time, change time, set clock, or change clock.”

Here are some examples on Retrevo:

Sony Camcorder : Sony DVD 505 set time

Panasonic DVR : Panasonic DMR ES25 set clock

Sony Bravia TV : sony bravia xbr 40 set clock

Cell Phone Clocks

Most cell phones synchronize their time to a central service and should receive the correct time on the correct day. If not, you may have to set the time manually.

For the Motorola v551:
