Do you need to do it with flip-flops?
Can you use a one-shot? A simple 555 circuit can do the trick for you.

Hi guys,is there anyway I could get time delay using D Flip flops?I've tried googling it but all I get is info. on 555 IC timers.
What sort of time delay do you want (1mS, 1 min...)?

You can use a transistor in series with the motor and put a RC circuit on the base. Or you can use a cmos 555 timer in the one shot (monostable) mode and an AND gate which will drive the transistor base.

I need to build a simple delay off timer. When the input is triggered (pulse only) the output must go high and stay high for a period of say 1 hour or 4 hours or selectable. When the input is triggered again, the output timing is restarted.

555s can be very fickle when used in timer mode, they are very prone to false triggering when near any source of interference. I think you will end up tearing your hair out when used in the presence of an electrically noisy motor. You can buy timed off relays with variable timers. Also as Banjo suggested, a cheap micro (...)

You may want to describe the intended circuit operation more clearly. To my opinion it's hard to understand either from the circuits or your description.
Generally, introducing a delay in the said range involves capacitors of about 1000 uF. It can be implemented more easily with active parts, either timer circuits with 555 or transistors (...)

This is the basic 555 monostable circuit. One problem is charge stuck in C1. If you close the switch for several seconds, open the switch and then close it again quick

You want a loud buzzer, well you can get a cheap piezo that'll produce 100db's, which is annoyingly loud, getting that from your own circuit requires complexity.

Sorry for being so unclear.
The fan is mains (220V) operated, and the toggle switch is part of the mains power, switching the lights on-off.
The delay off electronics is 12 V operated, and gets its power from the permanent phase and zero lines.
The coupling between the low V and the high V circuits is made with relays.

If you can put your circuitry inside the amplifier box, you can use a 555 timer to make the time delay for the relay closing. For the resistor, just put it from the capacitor output to ground.

I need a timing circuit with the said output below. You may say this is an ordinary monostable circuit. But this is probably not, the circuit will only change its output after a certain period of time after the user triggers the circuit.
Another difference is that the output is dependent on the users trigger, after the trigger is released (OFF)

You can use a 555 timer to implement the delay.
In the astable circuit, disconnect the DISCH pin, and make sure your button shorts the timing cap to ground when not pressed. Once you press the button, it should open its contact and the timing cycle will begin. Once the time has expired, the output will turn on and stay on (...)

A 555 timer IC might do the job. It's one of the most popular and easy-to-use chips.
You would arrange it to trigger when it detects a drop in volt level.
The output goes high for 15 seconds, whether the switch is closed again quickly, or remains open.
The length of time delay is set by the 150 kOhm resistor and 100 (...)
