Question about RCA RP5610 Clock Radio

Turning off "NAP" feature

I can't turn off the "NAP" feature on my RP5610.... I always end up randomly pressing buttons for 10 minutes to get it to shut off.... Fully aggrevating me.... I never intend to set "NAP" but if you hit snooze the "NAP" button is close enough to be bumped when you are still half asleep...

There is no manual available for download or I would have just looked it up myself.... My manual of course found it's way to the trash during Spring cleaning....

Please help?

Thanks so so much

    I have the same problem...but my "Nap" feature turns on when ever I have to set the alarm clock. I do not want it to but it just turns on. You are supposed to hold down on the "Nap" button until it turns off but this only works about half the time.

    I can't turn off my Nap feature either, even by following the instructions in the manual.

    I'm also having the same problem as the second poster now, where when I press the button to set the alarm time, it turns on the Nap... and I can't turn it off!

    My workaround is to set the Nap to 10 minutes and then hit the Off button when the alarm sounds. REALLY frustrating!

    Same thing here, when I go to set or check my alarm, half the time the "nap" will come on, and I have to hit it about a dozen times before it shuts off. This thing is a peice of garbage.

    Yep, same problem here. My model number is RP4803B, but looks the exact same and **** just as bad. Go to set the alarm time without even pushing the nap button the stupid thing turns it on and you stuck waiting 10 mins to turn it off. Looking that people are having the same problem a hammer will solve my problem. Going back to simple standard alarm clock with no CD or dual alarms. They never break or mess up. Thumbs down to RCA for not having a solution and not having an on-line manual.

You have to "double-click" the "NAP" button. And on the second "click," hold it down until the "NAP" light goes off.
That worked for me three times in a row, at least.

I am not sure how to set the time interval in the nap mode. It starts at 2 hours, and I can't change it.


Ok, this is the way it works, and I keep my clock radio for this feature alone. It is a 2 hour "count down" timer. It is set in 15 minute intervals. Supposed you wanted to take a 1/2 hour nap. Press the button but don't let go. As you hold your finger down the timer will start at 2 hours (2.0) and it will then go to 1.45, etc. When you get to a 1/2 hour let go and it will start counting down. If, in the process, you make a mistake, press the blue button and don't let go. Hold it down until it erases the setting and removes the NAP text from the front display. Release button. Start holding down the button again. Once again, the display will go to two hours, continue to press button, it will start counting back in 15 minute increments. Again, when it gets to 1/2 hour, quickly let the button go. As the clock counts down, you cannot see how much time is left on the clock. Press the button, quickly let go again. It will display how much of the 1/2 is left. When the clock counts down to zero, either the alarm will sound or the radio will start playing depending on what you set the alarm to do. Press the off button, that's it... (0:

I am using my mother's Elgin 3400E travel alarm


On my Elgin alarm clock, you just push the nap button and it will add 15 minute increments for a nap. I haven't figured out how to turn it off if I change my mind or wake up earlier than I set it.

Good Morning. I was given this alarm clock which is driving me crazy cause i cant figure out what to do. I tried researching the internet for a manual, but failed. It is a RCA CD Clock dual wake Radio....


Following are the instructions for the RP5610 which looks very similar to the 4801A (that I also have). The only difference in the instructions is that the 4801A doesn't have a clock icon, just press the SET button until the center colon dots are flashing, Press the rewind or fast forward arrows on the circle next to it to set the time. Set the alarms by pressing the set button until bell 1 or 2 is displayed. Nap is also set with the set button - not sure how to stop it yet.

To set the clock:
  1. Press the SET button until the clock icon is displayed (circle with hands at 10 and 2)
  2. Press |<< REV or >>| FWD to set the time.
  3. AM or PM icon will show besides the time.

Press the SET button until you cycle through the alarms and the Colons on the time start to flash. use the right and left arrows from the CD buttons to adjust time; After time is set; press the SET button. Be careful to not fat finger and hit the CD button when pressing the SET buttons. That will turn on the AWFUL NAP timer. That's another headache.

. Stop the Nap alarm Press NAP to start NAP flashing. Press and hold NAP to cancel the nap setting. If this does not work; try again. It seems to take me a time or 2 to get it to work.
