Question about Teac SRL50 Clock Radio

1 Answer

Intermittant failure LED display of my TEAC SR-L50 Clock Radio

Each digit on display is made up of 7 lights.
One of the digits has an intermittant problem with the top and bottom horizontal light.
It appears to be associated with humidity. All through winter it behaves fine, but as soon as the humidity increases in summer I lose those two lights.
It is the secong digit that is faulty and being a clock radio it means you cant tell what hour it is.
I would like to know whether it is a faulty part, bad connection or just a ideosyncracy of larger LED displays.

Hi,

Offhand, the failure of the 2 segments would seem to be intermittent (granted affected by humidity). Technically, I would suspect a case of cold solder. They could be replaced or if you know somebody who could solder, then it is a matter of re-heating the joints and adding a dab of soldering lead.

Check and replace the main digital board. It is faulty. In most cases main board replacement might be followed by a firmware update too. If you wish to get more details visit the site linked here.

How to set the name plate on the brookstone electronic name plate


1) use a pin to press and hold "reset" to clear the display
2) press and hold "S" to get a blinking underline
for each letter, press the "C" triangle until you see the letter you want, then press the "E" square to enter that letter and advance to the next letter. when done, just wait for it to timeout.

I'm unsure how to display things more than 16 letters.

It looks like your problem might be an easy fix, at least. If the gear train between the motor and clock got stripped, you'd be in a bit more trouble. If the motor just isn't spinning, remove it from the side of the clock housing. There are 2 screws (or nuts) holding it in place. When you get it off, the cover for the motor will also be off. Apply some 3 in 1 oil, or perhaps just a tiny bit of penetrating oil, and give it a spin. From what I've read, it should do just fine. A lot of people use wd40, but I understand that can gum up over time.

This is a "at your own risk" type of repair, but as long as you unplug it before dismantling the radio, I think you'll be fine.

Your radio should have come with a receiver of some sort for the radio signals to set itself. I had this same issue with my clock when the battery in the receiver died ... try replacing this too. It took me forever to figure out what it was because I had forgotten that it had its own radio receiver ... then once I remembered it existed, I had to find it, but replacing the battery fixed the problem. Hope that helps :-)

If there is an RCA output (red & white), you can get an RCA to 3.5mm mini jack adapter at a store like Radio-Shack in the US or the Source in Canada.
