Setting up time in Nook Wi-Fi

Can anyone tell me how I can set my time with my Nook Wi-Fi. I have never registered my Nook and the first time I connected to wifi it set the time automatically. After several months the time is off by about 10 minutes so I want to readjust it.

Any ideas how?

Just reboot the Nook. That should set the time correctly.

That won't work. Mine has the same problem. I get the feeling you have to establish a WiFi connection again, maybe register then unregister.

Do you have firmware 1.4? For me setting the time this way only worked after I upgraded to 1.4.

If you have airplane mode on, turn it off...when it connects to a network the time will automatically update itself. Mine was on airplane mode for 3 months and the time was off by 10 minutes. I'd just reconnected it to a wifi network and the time adjusted itself.

I do have FW 1.4. Just turning the airplane mode off did not set my time. I did however follow geertm's advice and with the airplane mode off I rebooted the Nook and the time was adjusted automatically!
Thanks guys!

And were you connected to a WiFi network after you re-booted or not?

I do the same: Connect to WiFi, restart Nook and clock resets, go back to airplane mode.

I know this is an old thread, but thanks for the info. I had no idea I couldn't set to the correct time myself but had to turn on wi-fi.

The other night when the clock was running 8 minutes fast, I just couldn't understand why it only gives you the option of making it 12 or 24 hrs, keep daylight time on, but it wouldn't let me set the time!
