Update your clock
Our early clocks with Raspberry Pi's need to be updated manually.
Remove the SD card from the Raspberry Pi (see image below and video here if needed, the SD card is on the bottom of the green board.)
  1. 1.
    Use a computer that has a micro SD Card reader (or have a micro SD card reader you can use with the computer.)
  2. 2.
    Install the program BalenaEtcher on your computer. Download the program here.
  3. 3.
    Download one of the files under "Clock Update Downloads" below to the computer. (Please note these are large files over 2GB)
  4. 4.
    Using BalenaEtcher, write the file to the micro SD Card
  5. 5.
    Open up the back of the clock
  6. 6.
    Return the SD card to its slot (see image below and video here if needed)
  7. 7.
    Check that the display now reads “7 years, 1xx days...”
