Question about Boston Acoustics Recepter Clock Radio
This results in the battery not being pushed into the compartment far enough to engage, which means no battery backup. Pushing on the compartment cover engages the battery, but who's got the time to sit there pushing that thing in all the time in case of power failure?
I had the same problem with my wife's vibrator. I was taking business trips almost every week for 6 months. She was going through those D batteries so much that we were buying them in bulk from Costco. Anyway - from constantly changing the batteries we weakened the spring-lock mechanism on the screw-top. Being her favorite toy, I so didnt want to disappoint her. It had such sentimental value as we purchased this on our 1st date at the local flea market as a gag. It appeared almost-new so what the heck. Anyway - try rubbing the connectors with a little tin foil from time to time to keep them clean. Every once in awhile some baby oil leaks into the chamber and causes it to short-out. Any suggestions on that?

Hi first of all why isnt the cover closing? check for correct size of battary (its on the unit, maybe inside the compartment : A, AA ,D.....) check inside the compartment if there is anything that disturbes if its just the little tongue of a lock that is broken then you can take a strong tape and just shove the battries in and put the tape on good luck

1* Remove unit and all packing materials from the carton. You should save packing
materials in case unit needs to be returned for service. If you do not wish to save the
materials, please dispose of them properly.
2* Place the unit on a stable, level surface, close to an AC outlet, out of direct sunlight,
and away from sources of dust, dirt, heat, water, moisture, vibration, or magnetic fields.
3* After installing the batteries (see below) and reading the Maintenance notes, plug the
AC cord into an outlet.
"Sure Alarm" Battery Backup Installation
It is strongly recommended that 2 "AA" batteries be installed into the unit, as directed below,
in order to activate this product's "Sure Alarm" Battery Backup feature. (The model should
come with two batteries already installed.) In the event that the AC power cord is disconnected
or a power failure or other interruption occurs, the "Sure Alarm" Battery Backup will maintain
clock and alarm settings for the life of the battery, ensuring that the alarm (buzzer only) will
sound at the set time. During any interruptions the time and alarm settings will be saved
and automatically restored when AC power is again active.
1* Gently turn the unit over and remove the battery
2. Install 2 "AA" batteries (alkaline is recommended for
longer life), while making sure that the + and - ends
match up with those inside the battery compartment.
3* Slide the battery compartment door back on, making
sure the door locks into place, and gently return the
unit to its upright position.

o Bose radio uses a standard nine-volt battery that serves as a backup for the memory and alarm when it's unplugged or when the power is off. It will power these functions for up to three days. Using the radio without the battery won't damage it, but the memory won't be backed up. The battery does not provide enough power for normal operation, including the lighted display.
To install a battery, turn the radio over. Push on the arrow on the battery chamber cover and move it aside. Match the terminals on the battery with their opposites inside the chamber, and push the battery securely into place. Close the cover and return the radio to an upright position.
Connect the power cord to the jack on the back of the radio. The flat side of the connector must line up with the flat side of the jack. Since the power cord contains the FM antenna, uncoil the cord for the best reception. Plug the power cord into a standard electrical outlet.
An FM cable connector is on the back of the radio. Contact your cable company for help in setting up your connection. When you set it up, be sure to use a splitter that separates the FM signal from the TV signal so that the TV signal won't be transmitted to your radio.
If your remote is slotted on the back, press the tip of a pen into the opening and push the battery chamber cover to the side. If there's no slot, push the tab to one side with your finger and open the chamber cover. Use only a lithium battery size CR 2032 or DL 2032. Place the battery into the chamber with the plus sign face-up. Push the chamber cover closed and it will lock.
