Does flat panel display’s clock show the incorrect time?

Current time setting can be checked by pressing “confirm” button (showing information) of remote control.

If digital broadcasting signal is received via RF (radio frequency) antenna terminal at the rear of TV and clock mode is configured to “auto”, the clock shows the time from currently viewed broadcasting station’s embedded signal.

If external device (e.g. set-top box) is connected to TV, you can set the clock manually by selecting “user settings”.

If the power is cut off after setting the time (blackout , disconnecting the power cord or turning off the switch of the power bar), the current clock setting gets cancelled and will need to be reset.

If the clock displays incorrect time, scheduled recording will be carried out based on this incorrect data and the auto on/off feature will also not operate.
