If you space at civilization Fantasy Con best now, you have an iHome clock radio in her room. It looks choose this:


The iHome clock radio is really popular through hotels everywhere the world. It functions an iphone dock (with the now-obsolete 30-pin connector) and also easy-to-use controls v instructions published right top top the top. Unfortunately, among the points that is NOT covered by this instructions is just how to adjust the time. Very few people, consisting of hotel staff, know how to change the time setup on this clock, which method that — specifically in the days and also weeks adhering to a adjust to or indigenous Daylight save Time — the time shown is incorrect and it is frustratingly daunting to adjust it.

You are watching: How to set clock on ihome

I have determined how to do it, and I’m going come share it v you now.

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


You’ll check out a horizontal bar of plastic through a knurled knob at the right finish (it’s just to the left of the white wires in the picture above). This knob is actually a thumbscrew. Twist it counterclockwise to unfasten it.


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

If your clock has actually a DST switch, it has three positions: AUTO, OFF, and also +1. The AUTO place is claimed to choose the suitable Daylight save Time setup automatically. (But if the were working, we wouldn’t be here.) The +1 setup advances the clock by one hour. (In mine case, that adjusted it indigenous being off by one hour come being turn off by 2 hours.) and the OFF setup gives up on the whole idea and also lets you set the time yourself.

To adjust the time, press and also hold the CLOCK ADJ button until the clock beeps and the time display screen blinks, then rotate the right-hand key on the optimal of the clock to adjust the time backward or forward. When you have the correct time, push the CLOCK ADJ button repeatedly until the moment is displayed again. You’re done!

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

Please link to this internet page using the indigenous iHome, clock, radio, and hotel in the attach so that civilization can discover it and adjust the time on their hotel clocks. Future hotel guests will say thanks to you.
