Question about Jensen 200W AM/FM/CD Car Receiver - CD4610

1 Answer

Memory/settings non functional

The unit functions normally, except if I set the clock, or set radio station presets, the unit has no memory of them once it is turned off then on again. I have checked the wire connections and they all seem to be good. Is there something else that could be wrong with the unit?

I'm not sure if car radios have internal batteries, but that's what keeps preset memory on home radios. In any case, preset memory requires a small continous electric current, and if there is none coming into the radio then when you switch the car off it will reset. Hope you find something along that line

Instructions for jensen jcr-425 clock radio, how to set clock

To preset a channel on the JCR-425, you tune in the channel; press the "AL/MEM" button on top of the radio (at which time you will probably be switched to some other radio frequency, which is rather disconcerting), press the "Up" or "Down" button to select the desired preset channel number, press "Set" -- and only then are you returned to your desired radio station. If you want to preset several channels,
You might then think that the next time you turn on the radio that all you would have to do is press one of the 10 preset channel buttons on the front of the radio to visit one of your preset radio stations. You would be wrong. You must turn on the radio, then press the "AL/MEM" button on top of the radio. Only then can you access your preset radio stations.
You might also think that to turn on the radio you would press a button that says "Power." Wrong. You press a button that says "Radio." Well, okay. But you might think that to turn it off, you would just press the "Radio" button again. Wrong. If you have pressed the "AL/MEM" button to access your preprogrammed channels, pressing the "Radio" button simply takes you out of the "AL/MEM" function and back to the "FM" (or "AM") function, apparently taking you back to the last radio station you tuned in manually. To turn off the radio after accessing a preset channel, you must press "Radio" twice.

I have a new ESTR 200 that has been in a closet for a couple of years. Very little seems to function well. The presets will not hold if I turn the system off or if I turn to another function. Record...

I assume we're talking about the Element ESTR200...

A turntable will not work with this receiver unless the TT is already preamplified. No Phono Preamp in this unit.


From the manual...

Store a station
1. Press the FM/AM button on the front panel (or
the AM/FM button on the remote).
2. Select the station you want to store in memory
by the methods described above.
3. Press the MEMORY button on the remote
While "MEMORY" is glittering, press number
buttons on the remote for the station.

If the Memory indicator on the display turns off before you preset the station selection, Press Memory again.

Manual preset
1. Select the band wave by pressing FM/AM
2. Turn to a radio station(see "Manual tuning" on
page 8 in details).
3. Select a group (A- D) of preset stations. This
group will be displayed on the front panel.
For example: "A".
4. Press MEMORY on the remote control.
"MEMORY"will appear on the display.
5. While the word "MEM" appears, input your desired preset number (1-8 ) by using the numeric keys on the remote control to store the radio station. For example this number is "1", the station is stored as "A1".
A new setting can cover the former one.
This memory is kept before next reset.

Retrieving preset stations
1. Press FM/AM button on the front panel or the
remote control to select tuner mode.

2. Press A/B/C/D button on the front panel or the
remote control to select the group of preset stations that you require.

4. By the same way, you can select other stored

The remote control does not operate the unit.
-Another function is selected on the remote.
Press the correct function button.
-No batteries installed. Install the batteries before
using the remote.
Be sure "+" and "-" marks of each battery match the symbol on the inside of the remote battery compartment.

Pioneer DEH 225 car radio instructio booklet

Actually, there a re a bunch of hits when you Google it.

Here's the answer I found straight from Pioneer:

If your car CD player is a 2006 model or newer:
  • With the ignition on and radio OFF,
  • Press and hold the MULTI-CONTROL button for 2 seconds
  • Rotate MULTI-CONTROL button until display reads CLOCK.
  • Push MULTI-CONTROL button up or down to adjust hour and minutes.
  • Press ESCAPE or SOURCE button to exit

If your car CD player is newer than 2000 but older than 2006:

  • With the ignition on and radio OFF, press and hold the FUNCTION button, until the display pops up, then release the button.
  • (If you do not have a function button, use the AUDIO button instead).
  • Press the FUNCTION button again until the clock shows on the display.
  • Press the UP and DOWN buttons to adjust the hours.
  • Press the LEFT and RIGHT arrows to move to the minutes.
  • Press the UP and DOWN to adjust the minutes.
    When you've completed all the steps, just press the SOURCE button to exit

If your car CD player is 1999 or older:

  • With the ignition on and radio OFF,
  • While holding down the CLOCK button, press the number preset button to set the hour.
  • While holding down the CLOCK button, press the number 2 preset button to set the minutes.
  • Pressing the respective buttons consecutively or continuously will advance the hour and minute.
For further assistance please consult your user manual.

Here are some other answers from around the web:

Hold down the source button till the unit switches off. Press thefunction button until it says clock. Use the tuner/volume controls tochange the time. Left/right switches between hour and minute. Up/downchanges the actual numbers.The website I'm including has all the old manuals on it if this doesnot work for you. Problem is, you may not know your model # so willhave to click through the links till you see a pic of one that lookslike yours. Hope this helps. I'm stoked that my clock is finally right!

turn the radio OFF with the car ON
then its easy to set the clock.
Most folks try to figure it out with the radio on
and it cant be done with the radio on,

Turn it off. Hold down "func" or "function" until something happens.
Then press the arrow keys still something else happens. When you're done, press "func" or "function" till nothing happens. Turn it on.
