If you space at human being Fantasy Con ideal now, you have actually an iHome clock radio in your room. That looks prefer this:


The iHome clock radio is really popular v hotels almost everywhere the world. It functions an iphone phone dock (with the now-obsolete 30-pin connector) and also easy-to-use controls v instructions printed right top top the top. Unfortunately, among the things that is NOT spanned by this instructions is just how to change the time. Very few people, including hotel staff, know just how to readjust the time setting on this clock, which method that — especially in the days and also weeks adhering to a adjust to or native Daylight to save Time — the time displayed is incorrect and it is frustratingly challenging to change it.

I have established how to perform it, and I’m going to share it with you now.

Turn the clock radio around and also look at the back:


You’ll watch a horizontal bar of plastic with a knurled knob at the right end (it’s just to the left the the white wires in the picture above). This knob is actually a thumbscrew. Twisted it counterclockwise to unfasten it.


When you have actually unfastened the thumbscrew, the entirety horizontal bar comes off (it hooks in in ~ the left end), revealing buttons labeling TIME ZONE and CLOCK ADJ and also (on some models) a switch labeled DST.

If her clock has a DST switch, it has actually three positions: AUTO, OFF, and also +1. The AUTO position is claimed to choose the suitable Daylight save Time setup automatically. (But if the were working, us wouldn’t be here.) The +1 setting advances the clock through one hour. (In my case, that readjusted it native being turn off by one hour come being off by two hours.) and the OFF setting gives increase on the entirety idea and lets you collection the time yourself.

To adjust the time, press and also hold the CLOCK ADJ button until the clock beeps and also the time display blinks, then revolve the right-hand key on the optimal of the clock to readjust the time backward or forward. As soon as you have the exactly time, push the CLOCK ADJ switch repeatedly until the moment is presented again. You’re done!

To replace the horizontal bar, hook it right into the hole at the left end, swing it earlier into place, and refasten the thumbscrew.

Please attach to this net page utilizing the native iHome, clock, radio, and hotel in the connect so that human being can uncover it and adjust the time on your hotel clocks. Future hotel guests will give thanks to you.
