    I have decided to unplug my RCA RP5420 and take it to classes for show and tell on what products not to buy, since the genius that designed the system to where you can never enjoy this clock unless it gets to wake you up even when you don't want to. Not recommended for college students.

If its anything like the RCA model I have, you have to simultaneously hit the alarm button for the alarm you want to turn off AND the off button, so both at the same time.

Set time on RCA dual clock radio with fashion wrap? RCR 8622


I love the form of your question, as I wanted to wing the sucker myself, but got online before I actually pulled an Office Space on it. I found nothing, but I DID actually figure it out. Not super intuitive though. To set the time: Hold down the memory key in the middle until the number flashes. Use the arrow up/down on the right to set hour. Press Memory key again, repeat with arrow keys to set minutes. Hit memory key again. Alarm: Press/hold the Alarm button until the Alarm 1 or 2 flashes and press the side you want, 1 or 2, to set. Arrow time up/down, then do minutes, press alarm 1 again, select alarm or tuner, press alarm 1 again. Now I need to see if it will work in the morning. I know the flipping time is set though! Good luck. If you wing it, please post photos! :D

Why is my alarm always onn


Alarms are designed to reset every day after you stop them so they'll wake you the next day without you having to do anything. Look for a setting on your clock radio that lets you turn the alarm completely off. You'll be able to tell when you've succeeded, because the indicator on the front panel that shows whether an alarm has been set will disappear. Don't forget to reverse the procedure and turn the alarm on when you want to awakened the next day.

How do i set the alarm on my ihome alarm dock?


Once the time is correct, users can move on to setting the alarm itself. Many iHome systems come with dual alarms allowing couples to set different times for each person or individuals to designate a weekday and weekend alarm. Each alarm has its own time, wake-to source, and frequency. The process of setting the alarm is the same for both options, the only difference is what button, either 1 or 2, users depress when setting it.

Once ready to set an alarm, users need to push and hold the button down, waiting for the alarm time to appear on the clock's display. From there, the up and down arrows or plus and minus buttons adjust the time backwards or forwards accordingly. Once that is complete, users select the frequency of the alarm by pressing the alarm button again and then opting for 7, 5, or 2, which correlates with all week, weekdays, and weekends respectively.

The final part to set is the wake source of the alarm. Users press alarm buttons one more time, and then use the same directional buttons to choose from iPhone and iPad on some models, radio, buzzer, or playlist. If users choose playlist, they must also setup a playlist within their Apple device titled iHome.

Because frequency is part of the alarm setting process, there is no need to turn on the iHome alarm manually as one would do with a normal alarm clock. However, users can check to see if the alarm is active by looking at the screen of the clock for the earliest alarm time, displayed on its lower part.
In the mornings, when the alarm sounds, users have two options: Snooze and disarm. The disarm process turns off the alarm until the next day in its frequency chain. Users disarm the alarm by pressing the power button. On the other hand, users must manually program the snooze button. Users do this by pressing and holding the snooze button and then toggling to the desired snooze time, generally between one and 29 minutes. Once this is set, users simply press the snooze button in the mornings to delay the replay of the alarm for that amount of time.

I can't figure out how to set the alarm and make sure that it's set. The instructions with the clock radio are not clear. Also not sure how to turn off the alarm when it buzzes in the morning.....Help!!


Hello Barb,

To set the alarm hold either alarm 1 or alarm 2 buttons down. While holding down the button adjust the hour by pressing the tune+ button. The bottom left of the display there will be a light letting you know if it is pm or am. While still pressing the alarm press tun- to select the minutes. If you want to wake with radio or a buzz keepholding the alarm button down and press the am/fm/aux button. Release the alarm button when done. To select an alarm just press the alarm botton you want once, a light on the right side of the display will turn on. To unselect press the same alarm button once and the light will turn off. To turn the buzzer off in the morning select power/al off button located at the top left of the unit.

To turn the ‘weekend cancel’ feature off you must press and hold the ‘weekend cancel’ button for about three seconds. Afterwards, the ‘weekend cancel’ display will start to flash. When it stops flashing (about three seconds later) release the button. To turn the feature back on, simply press the ‘weekend cancel’ button once again.

How to set alarm and how to turn it off so that it is not used.


To turn on alarm, switch the selector lever to "Wake" and adjust the time shown. Then, switch the lever back to "Lock" and push the "Wake Mode" button until you see the selector dot (located on the bottom right of the time display) change to either the music or bell symbol; depending on how you'd like to be awaken.

To cancel the alarm, simply hit the "Cancel" button once, then press the "Wake Mode" button until the selector dot disappears.
