Can CD40110 start counting from 1

I have a small assignment to made a century clock (which include year, month, day, hour, minute, second) without using micro-controller. I decide using CD40110 to driving common cathode 7-seg LED directly instead of using 2 separate IC ( 1 counter such as 74LS90 and 1 driver such as 74247). I have some problems when deadling with year-month-day. I attach my pic of schematic circuit for month only below.


How can I start counting from 1 instead of 0 in CD40110? I've tried to connect my logic reset to clock-up so when it reset, It will have a pulse to clock to display 1 directly but it's fail.

If CD40110 can't do it, do you guys recommend more feasible solutions? Thank you.

Does that mean this is school work?
Not really, I'm 19 and trying to dive into digital electronic and I find this project in a course online. So I try to stimutale one clock myself

Your schematic is one of the cleanest Proteus schematics I've seen. It would be better if you printed in black and white and so we don't have to look at that grid and that awful background.
Oh, thank you for recommendation, I'm totally new and has much things to learn. I will print it next time

That would be a typical age for someone to enter college.
I mean I expect that It will run like: 11 -> 12 -> 1 -> 2 .... (instead of 12 -> 0 -> 1 ...)
Unfortunately, the counter you selected doesn't have preset capability.

You'll have to use a different counter and use a BCD to 7 segment decoder to drive the display.

Here's a synchronous 1-12 counter I designed using JK flip flops.

The hex to 7 segment decoder was done with logic gates. As was the binary to BCD converter.

Since TTL is harder to get these days, you could also use CD4510, CD4029, or any other presettable up counter. The former are both up/down counters.

Thank you so much for your help, I completed the clock
Congrats. Care to post a schematic?

If you're interested in learning how to design synchronous counters using flip flops, as in post #8, I can help you. The hex to 7 segment converter I used can be implemented with a ROM; that's how the commercial parts were implemented. I chose to use logic just for the practice. I breadboarded something similar in the late 70's when I was a technician. The binary to BCD converter is a common school problem that uses the double dabble algorithm.

The logic simulator I use is free.
EDIT: insert 'I' above.
