Thanks for answering, when I put the clock for automatic it will be fine for a couple of hoursAnn in Arlington said:Neither my O2 or PW (latest model) have a setting for 'automatic' and I don't remember if they change on their own or if I have to do it. I feel like I have to do it, so I guess I'm not much help.
Maybe the problem is that we are currently in Daylight Time and not Standard time?
Unless I've completely misunderstood the question -- it's still quite early, so that's a definite possibility.
(The page to adjust the time is under settings, device options, device time -- but you probably already know that.)
Hmmm .... that is weird.amyberta said:Thanks for answering, when I put the clock for automatic it will be fine for a couple of hours
and it goes back to four hours ahead so I have to change it manually. I've never had that happen before. This is a kindle that was replaced from my other oasis 3.
My computer does have the right time. I guess I'll just have to keep it to manually set the time.Ann in Arlington said:Hmmm .... that is weird.
I wonder if the problem could be external .... like an issue with your wifi router that it doesn't know where it is or something. I assume your other computers/tablets keep time o.k.?
Sorry I can't be more help.
I have no such setting on my Oasis (not current model but the one before). BUT, I also only have WiFi, no 3G/4G. I'm guessing that's the difference.amyberta said:I go to settings , device options and then device time. I then have the choice to set it automatically or not.
Well that explains my confusion - I can't ever remember having to change the time manually, even on the ones that don't have an 'automatic' option. (My Voyage and my Kindle Touch do have that option). Almost all the Kindles I've ever had have had 3g as well as wi-fi.barryem said:If I remember correctly Wifi Kindles don't adjust for daylight savings and 3G or 4G Kindles do. I have both but neither are at hand at the moment. Do you have a 3G Kindle or a Wifi Kindle?
I don't know if it is still true, but previously having the "wrong" time set, even if you hid the time on your book screens, would cause newly downloaded books to go to the end of your lists even when sorted by recent. Quite a few people thought they weren't receiving new downloads because they weren't showing up at the top of their home page lists. Correcting the time corrected the problem.LDB said:I'm a watch wearer so I don't really care if my Kindle has the correct time or not or any time for that matter. Even so, is there some reason I haven't thought of as to why the Kindle needs to know the correct time or is it just for convenience for those who don't wear a watch?
