When a Wall Display/CPU/DAKboard OS device has been powered off or disconnected from the internet for a length of time, the internal clock may gain, or lose time. When reconnected to the internet, the DAKboard device will automatically update the time. However, sometimes this update process is delayed and an "incorrect date/time" or "Your clock is behind" message will appear.
If your device is connected to the internet, leave it powered on for about 5-10 minutes to give it enough time to sync, then restart it by unplugging the power and plugging it back in.
If the time still does not update, you may be unable to access the time servers from your location due to a networking issue. If you are comfortable with accessing the command-line interface for the device and troubleshooting the network issue, please reach out to us for the basic steps to access the command line and then review the following testing instructions:
