I am not sure what you are looking for. The TimeCode in PrE is SMPT, so hours:minutes:seconds:frames. Those number will appear in the Project's Preview Monitor.
Somehow, I think that you might be talking about something else?
I am working in Premiere - is there a way I can change the TimeCode - it was working just fine in hours, minutes, seconds and then it changed. I apologize for my ignorance - what is the Preview Monitor - is this where I edit the video clips?
I figured it out! I kept searching and found one of your previous answers to someone - somehow my project was reset to frames - so I switched it back to 30 fps drop-frame timecode - and it worked. Is 30 fps drop-frame timecode a correct format?

Check this out and, if necessary, I will post some screenshots.
From your prior post, I believe you are working with Premiere Elements 11.
In the Expert workspace, go to Edit Menu/Project Settings/General and look to the field for Display Format. What does it say?
If you are set up for NTSC, the choices typically will be
30 fps Drop-Frame Timecode
30 fps Non-Drop-Frame Timecode
If you are set up for PAL, the choices typically will be
25 fps Timecode
Do you see Frames as the setting? If so, switch out of it.
Please let us know the results. If the response did not target your question, then please supply more details, and we will think about this some more.

I did see your last post with news of problem solved until after I had posted.
Congratulations on your troubleshooting. Good job.
Glad that things are now working, as you need them to.
Should you have any issues, please do not hesitate to ask.
Good luck, and happy editing.
Short cut for next time: Ctrl+Click on the timecode area to toggle display between frames and timecode..

That is a great shortcut that I had not run into previously. It works great.
Thanks for sharing that time saver.
