Question about Cambridge Soundworks 88CD Clock Radio
My power was recently out for more than five days during the recent heat wave. After several days of no power, I borrowed a generator and plugged in my essentials, including my Cambridge 88CD clock radio. I was astonished that I didn't even have to reset the time or any of my settings, including my alarm settings. When my power came back on, I didn't take the time to move my bed and re-plug everything back in the way I had it before, so I just plugged the 88CD into an extension cord. Tonight I moved my bed and reconfigured the extension cords and such, and when I plugged the 88CD back in, it would not power up. I have tried moving it around to different plugs in the house, but no matter what I do, it won't power up. I'm thinking I blew a fuse, but the manual doesn't talk about fuses. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks SO much. Shannon

I don't believe you will find the Service Manuals generally available online. You would likely need to obtain these from a technician working in an authorized dealer location. If nonone has been able to respond to your request at this point I would recommend you contact Cambridge Soundworks directly to see if they can and are willing to provide.

A couple of possibilities- If there is no fuse holder on the rear of the box, it may not be user-replaceable but soldered onto an internal board. If it has blown, either there has been a component failure in the power supply that caused the fuse to fail or the supply is not starting up as it should, a problem caused by cheap capacitors in certain areas of the supply. Unless you have at least a multimeter, this is not a good choice as a DIY repair.
