IKEA Ribba Word Clock
John,I am using the one with the RTC Ic and crystal, I built two of them and both are inaccurate. Do you have a later version and if so could you supply me the link.Will it fit in the same space?RegardsJim
JohnMy clock is gaining about 10 minutes in two days, any ideas?Maybe the crystal is faultyRegardsJim
HiI am unsure if you understood my issue. The fourth tube from the left displays a capital P at all times which makes the display impossible to read and set.(I have attached a photo of a sketch to better explain the issue).I did not understand what you meant by "could be a problem from the IC connect dock"Could you let me know it you will send the chip with the latest software and a replacement tube if that is the issue.As i said I am impressed with the kit if only i can resolve these issues.Kind regards
The clock kit was easy to construct with a quality pcb and all components. I have however an issue with one of the tubes (the fourth from the left displays a capital "P" when turned on and therefore the only time it is correct is when an 8 is needed.I have swapped the IC's to no avail, and I suspect the tube is faulty or a program problem.Also the chip supplied was programmed with the original data and does not have the ability to change the date, temperature or hour modes.a couple of questions;Can the full stops be disabled except in the temperature modeWhat do the "PP" letters represent in the temperature mode and the two "-" in the alarm mode.If this can be resolved I will order another kit for a friendRegardsJim
