Question about RCA RP5420 Clock Radio

1 Answer

RCA Clock radio RP5420B time setting

Solution does not work - the time remains at 12:00 no matter what. It is a POS, the way it was designed and programmed. There should be a manual override inherent to any product. Did the polling satellite get shot down by the Russians?

Do you think I'll ever buy another product of this type and brand?

    I set my No. 2 alarm. When I switched back to the time display, the time had changed to the No. 2 alarm time. After unplugging and replugging, changing out the batteries several time, the time has switched to 12:00 (flashing) but it continues to keep time from 12:00 on and flashing. I won't buy another Thomson/RCA product again either. This is the second product I bought from them this year that has malfunctioned - within warranty period - and as I discovered with the first product their customer support is of no use, you don't get the same product back once you've sent in the defect and this radio manual does not supply a web site or 800 number to contact for support. Goodbye Thomson/RCA!

Move alarm switch to the far right, then plug in. You will notice a clock icon to the far right.

How do i set the time on this product


Press the Clock Set button on the top of the clock radio. Press either the forward or reverse (skip) buttons to change the time. Press and hold the button to get the time to change faster. Make sure the AM/PM indicator is correct for the current time. Then press Clock Set or wait 5 seconds without pressing a key to exit the time set mode.

You set the alarm time similarly after pressing Wake Time. Make sure the Wake Mode is set to alarm, radio or CD.

The manual for the clock is available at the RCA site: http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/search/?km=RP5605 .

I hope this helps.

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.

Need operating instructions for RCA clock radio Mod. 5430


The instruction manual will not help you, because it doesn't address this problem head on.  You're having this problem because the time changed, and the clock has an automatic setting.    As long as the batteries are in the clock and it's plugged up, it automatically computes the time. I just discovered the solution.  Unplug the clock, take out the batteries and WAIT about an hour.  Plug it back up, and the time will flash, allowing you to change the time.  You do this with the button on the top back which says wake up 1 and wake up 2.  Push that button all the way to the right to the setting that looks like a little clock, then press the forward button on the top of the clock to set the correct time.  Then put your batteries in and you're good to go!  (til the time changes again:)  Good luck!

RCA RP5420B 2Band AM/FM Clock Radio


At the top of the clock, there is four positions for the slider. The first is shown as a key, which I assume is the automatic time setting mode. The second is Wake 1, the third is Wake 2 and all the way to the right is a manual time setting mode. If you slide it all the way to the right, you can set the time, then either keep it in that mode or return it back to automatic mode. Either way, you now have the correct time displayed.

RCA RP5420 clock radio will not auto set time. Please help


Bob, My auto-set worked fine. I'd suggest setting the time manually (by sliding the top-rear slider all the way to the right and using the '<<rev' and 'fwd>>' buttons) if you are still having problems.
