Question about RCA RP5420 Clock Radio
Had my 5430 dual-alarm model about 7 months. For past two months, one by one, some of the LED elements of the numbers have stopped illuminating. (It's a challenge to figure out what time it is!) Also, for BOTH alarms the "radio alarm" indicator does not light up anymore. Seems like every couple days a different LED goes dead.
SOURCE: RCA RP3721 Alarm won't shut off
To turn alarm off completely, press WAKE1 and WAKE2 until the bell-shaped indicators go off.
As for resetting the alarm (buzzer), press SET WAKE/CLOCK untill SET and WAKE! light. Press left- or right+ arrow to set time. Press WAKE1 until bell-shaped indicator comes on.

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!

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.

Look at the display. Look for a number 1 or a number 2 to determine which alarm is on. If you see a number 1, push the 1 button on the top right side of the alarm clock until the number light goes off (1 or 2 times, depending on whether it is set to beep or radio alarm). When the number is not lit up, the alarm is off.
