SOURCE: 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!

Will a LG LED TV model 42LV3500 bought in Canada work in India


I'm sorry to inform you that the TV is not directly compatible with the power and color system available in India. The TV is only designed to work with 120V/60 Hz and NTSC color System. The power specification in India is 230V/50Hz. The color system is PAL.

However, you can use a Voltage converter and PAL to NTSC converter to make use of the TV in India.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

Converting 120v AC adapter to 220v AC adapter


I live in the Philippines, but I've got relatives in the US who send me gadgets as gifts. I've had the same problem with my laptop before but when I called HP call center, they said that as long as it says there input 100 - 240V, then it's ok to plug it in a 110 or 220 socket. Here in the PH, we have 220V sockets, but Americans use 110.

Anyway, your phone says it can only be plugged to a 120V socket (max) so that means, you have to use a transformer (that's what we call it here. a black box-like thing) to convert the volts from 220 to 110. If you plug your phone directly, it might explode.

I hope i answered your problem.

Clock runaway


You are right on, the clock is using the 50 hertz to keep time expecting it too be 60 hertz.

Different HZs problem (from 60Hz to 50Hz)


Hi,

Yes there are frequency converters available but most are relatively over rated (industrial) for your requirement such as MDS Power or VisiComm Industries. What you need is a Low Power Solid State Frequency Converters lower than a
Electrocon Frequency Converters. However, I expect this devices to be rather expensive.

A few other options you may want to consider:
1. Contact the store where you bought if from; swap with an International version (Model SL-1210 Mark II; same price as SL-1200 Mark II); dual voltage switchable on rear of unit: 120 volts/60 Hz (U.S.) or 220 volts/50 Hz (Europe). You hopefully just spend for the cost of shipping + a restocking fee;
2. Contact 3rd party Technics TT specialist like TopDJGear, Quality Electronics, Planet DJ or DJHardware
and inquire if they would supply you the part(s) that you need to convert the 1200 to a 1210; or
3. Offer a swap on eBay.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

SOny Clock IC492 looses time


Dont think this model clock accuracy depends upon the supply frequency.
1. I have ICF C 318 with the same specification but works accurately (1 sencond) in 50 Hz.
2. there are some amazone complaints even from US (wherein 60 Hz exists)

3. Dont think a clock designer will depend on supply frequency. (many time, this varies even in a very good power network)

JCR-160 clock radio Clock running slow


The clock works off the frequency (hertz). In US the electrical wave frequency is 60HZ/sec and in India and many other countries 50HZ/sec. Hence, the clock slows down about 6 seconds or so every minute.
