No you cant sorry, and even opening it will void the warranty so you would not want to do this.
You received a faulty clock sorry but it will be covered under the warranty, so it will be replaced under this at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

I was going to send it back anyway but thought there was something simple I could try (I am not gadget savvy) and often ai am told of a simple trick that works.

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
Not for this issue, its the timing component so they will test this and replace the main board. There is no simple trick for this problem, its actually a major fault for it.
Let me know if you need anything else please.
