Time Projector problem

For some reason my time projector only works part time. It worked fine for a few months but now is only on at random times. Is this a faulty unit? or is there a way to fix this?

The reason these projection displays have problems is usually caused by over expanded solder joints. This is caused by heating in the circuit,through prolonged use. This causes the metal in the solder joints to expand. This expansion will eventually cause the joint to loosen. The join because of the combination of expansion and vibration eventually loses contact with the circuit board connection.The problem is usually easily repaired by resoldering the cold solder joints. This type of problem occurs in all types of electronic devices. When this type of repair does not fix the problem, it is because during the process of becoming faulty it has taken it toll on other circuitry in the circuits of the leds. This is usually the power supply circuit for the leds. This will require the replacing the defective components, like transistors and ic's. This is usually best handled in the service centers. They will have all the service information and parts for the repairs. The customer support telephone number for Emerson is 1-800-898-9020 you can call them between the hours of 9am-5pm CT. Give them the make and model number of you Clock/Radio and ask them for assistance.I hope this information has help you understand the reason for the problem with your Clock/Radio. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day.

The clock says 13:01 AM!!! Tried everything in the directions none of the buttons do anything...

Switch button on bottom of clock from 24 to 12. Military time uses a 24 hour clock which means 1:00 PM becomes 1300. This doesn't answer "AM" as there is no am or pm for military time.

I have owned an Insignia clock radio model NS-CLVR01 for six months. Every few days the time will "freeze". I reset it and it works fine for a few days, then freezes again. Solution?

I had the same problem. Just random times of the day it would freeze. I followed every step in the manual. Did major fully day unplugged resets. Made sure the Voice Command was not on. Repeated many of these strategies in different order with advisement from Insignia tech. Problem persisted over course of a month no matter what I did. The best solution I found was battering it with my hammer until it was in 100 pieces. It doesnt freeze up anymore. My SONY alarm clock works great.

Time projection repeatedly either fails to turn on/off/lock

You have to change the internal battery. The type of battery is a CR2430. This battery has only a three year life span in ideal conditions. If you have had power outages or left the Clock/ Radio unplugged for long periods of time the battery life shortens. You can find the battery is most electronic stores and in large drugstores and supermarkets. Fry's electronics, Radio shack.You must unplug the radio from the plug and let the microprocessor discharge and reset itself. This will take about a hour. After you let it discharge, you can put the new battery in the Clock/Radio and check to see if the problem is fixed.If this does not fix the problem, you have a damaged microprocessor and will have to buy a new clock/radio. Emerson does not provide out warranty service for this product. I hope this information help you with your problem.
