Re:Lenovo Smart Clock CD-4N341Y - 24h time format

2020-11-30, 13:55 PM

Hi 

I purchased two of these items, and am disappointed about not having a 24h clock , I do appreciate that an upgrade is coming but I will return both within the next two weeks if there is no solution.

 

Is there no way of forcing a firmware upgrade or procedure for a manual upgrade of this device.

 

 

TM

Another one here, same issue, different country. In the US they seem to have the latest firmware and generally less problem with 12h format.
Looks like there weren't selling it outside the US, as I've seen customer comments dating back to 2018 so they were selling it there since then, or whoever bought it outside the US and had an issue returned it without inquiring here, understandable if bought at the original price.
The boom in comments seems to be be due to black friday sales, let's hope being so many people thinking about returning the device helps to speed the solution.

Same, might return it. Surely ANY alarm clock you can buy these days has 24 hour clock mode. What a fail to not include it as an option. 

 

I thought there would be a way to control the clock display so it can be nice and dim at night, the slider seems to do nothing. It does dim, but not enough for me and the slider seems to make no difference. 

 

How do you update the firmware, anyone know?

There is no way to force the update, but it will come, just wait for it.

@jamescl131 For me the screen brightness dim when I ask the assistant to turn off the lights in my room, maybe just ask it to turn of the lights work to dim the screen ? I looks like asking for lights work for the light at the back too.

Same here. I can't use the 24hour Format and my weather is stuck on (!) which, ironically, makes this the dumbest clock I ever owned since I can't really use it in the way I thought. 

 

Even more irritating is that my clock has been manufactured in September 2020 with the old .3 firmware. A friend of mine got one manufactured in August 2020 and has the new .6 Firmware right away. Which means you can't even be sure by looking at the manufacturing date which firmware you get. 

Quite frankly it's a huge failure on lenovos side to not being able to upgrade the firmware manually.

Hey everyone, mine is already updated in Spain.
The weather status icon is working and the time format appears as an option right at the end of the device options, just before the device info (firmware version and such).
New fw version 1.44.1.1.6

Hey Ala, thanks so much, device is already updated and weather status icon and 24hour format is working. You must have been convincing in that conversation ;)
Props to Lenovo and Google for the swift solution.
