    Changing time on Nook?

      hi..

       

      i'm trying to figure out how to change the time in my nook. I've already set it to my time-zone, i.e. Karachi,Islamabad but the time that it gives is still inaccurate. Any idea how to change the time itself?

            You can't change the time.

             

            You set your time zone and then hook it up to the internet (wi-fi) and it checks GMT and does the math.  There's no way to set it yourself.

             

            It's pretty good at keeping time once you get it right.  Mine hasn't been on wi-fi since July and it's still accurate.

                Not true.  I've got the latest software update available, have had the Nook connected via WiFi (and it is connected via wifi right now), and the time is still wrong.  It may work for you, but I've got the same problem as the OP.  I'm on Mountain time, and that's what my nook is set to, but it literally alternates between being one hour behind or one hour ahead.  All day yesterday, it was one hour ahead, but ever since this morning, it's been one hour behind.  Go figure.  We need to have the option to change it manually.

                Hi!

                I have the same problem. The nook doesn't show the correct time. There is +6 hour and 45 minutes difference between the correct and the showed time. When I connect to the WIFI sometimes it change the time but after that the differences is - 6h45m. It's ridiculous....

                Do you have any idea what should i do?

                    Did you double-check your timezone settings? (Settings->Time->Select time zone -- note that there's an option to display global time zones.)

                        Yes, I do. But it doesn't matter. If I change the time zone, the hours change on the nook but the 6h45m difference is still there. The strange thing is that if I connect to the wifi the difference is -6h45m and I get off from the wifi the difference goes back to +6h45m.

                            Where are you that you are seeing such a large difference?  I wouldn't be surprised if the Nook has problems with time zones outside the the Americas, since its target audience is the USA. Likely never tested on time zones beyond the Americas.
