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


The iHome clock radio is an extremely popular v hotels anywhere the world. It features an iphone dock (with the now-obsolete 30-pin connector) and easy-to-use controls through instructions published 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 exactly how to adjust the time setup on this clock, which way that — especially in the days and weeks complying with a readjust to or from Daylight to save Time — the time shown is incorrect and it is frustratingly difficult to change it.

You are watching: How to change time on ihome

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

Turn the clock radio around and also look in ~ the back:


You’ll watch a horizontal bar of plastic v a knurled knob at the right finish (it’s just to the left that the white wires in the photograph above). This knob is in reality a thumbscrew. Twist it counterclockwise come unfasten it.


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

If her clock has a DST switch, it has three positions: AUTO, OFF, and also +1. The AUTO position is an alleged to pick the suitable Daylight savings Time setup automatically. (But if the were working, we wouldn’t be here.) The +1 setup advances the clock through one hour. (In my case, that changed it indigenous being off by one hour to being off by 2 hours.) and also the OFF setting gives increase on the totality idea and lets you collection the time yourself.

To change the time, press and also hold the CLOCK ADJ switch until the clock beeps and the time display screen blinks, then rotate the right-hand disc on the peak of the clock to change the time backward or forward. When you have the exactly time, press the CLOCK ADJ button repeatedly until the time is displayed again. You’re done!

To replace the horizontal bar, hook it into the feet at the left end, swing it ago into place, and refasten the thumbscrew.

Please link to this web page making use of the indigenous iHome, clock, radio, and also hotel in the connect so that world can discover it and adjust the time on their hotel clocks. Future hotel guest will give thanks to you.
