Question about RCA RP5430 Clock Radio

Open Question

Graduwake feature It says in the manual that the clock comes equipped with a graduwake feature in which the radio will come on at the set time, start out very quietly, and work its way up to the volume I have it set on. When I read this I was very pleased as this sounds like an excellent feature that would make getting up less stressful and more enjoyable. However, upon getting up, the radio was already at the volume I had it set to. I thought to myself, "maybe I just slept through the quiet portion." I then set the alarm to one minute after the current time, just to listen while I was awake for the ascending volume. To no avail, though, as it sounded just as loud the whole time. Am I doing something wrong? Do I have to set the feature myself?

In order to download you need to register. It's free. I haven't used this site but I do download from a few other tech sites that require registration. It's never led to any problems (spam emails, etc.) but you should scan anything you download from any site for viruses just to be safe.

SOURCE: setting time and alarm clock for timex nature sounds clock

Hold the time set key in until the time flashes. Now let it go and use the tuning forward and back keys to set the time. I had the same problem because I continued to hold the timeSet button down while trying to adjust it. If you do, the forward/back keys have no effect.

SOURCE: I need an instruction manual for my RCA Clock

There are three buttons under the heading "Dual Wake", WK1, Cancel, WK2. The WK buttons refer to the two wake time settings you can have. Press Cancel and then WKx. That will turn off the alarm. If you press WKx more than once, it will cycle through small symbols on the bottom of the screen with the number x in front of them. First symbol means it will have a sound alarm for alarm x, second symbol means it will have a radio alarm and the third symbol means it will play the CD to alarm. You set the time for alarm with the slide switch at the back of the unit, selecting WK1 for alarm 1 and WK2 for alarm 2. You can have both alarms active at once, or either one singly.

When the radio comes on at the set time, it starts very soft then blares enough to wake the dead. Certainly don't need an alarm clock with this thing.


THis is probably a 'feature'. Quiet start, so as not to startle you, increasing to make sure you wake. Try waiting for it to get loud and then adjust the volume that you require.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE TIME


    • 1

      Refer to the section of your owner's manual that addresses the car radio. Each car radio is different in the way you set the clock. If you've installed a car radio other than the one that was manufactured with the car, consult the manual for that radio.

    • 2

      Know that if this is the first time you're setting the clock or are setting the clock after installing a new battery in your car, you have to set the hour and the minute of time. Often, you set the clock with either the radio station up or down arrows. On some car stereos, you use the CD track selector buttons for setting the clock.

    • 3

      Using either the CD or radio selector buttons, set the hour first. Push the button labeled "Set" or "Clock" and then set the minute with the same procedure. When setting the minute, some manufacturers allow you to move through in increments of five by pressing and holding the button. If the time of day were 2:49 p.m., for example, you would push the button 13 times, including nine times to display :45, then four additional times incremented by one to display :49. Push the "Set" button or the "Clock" button.

    • 4

      Determine whether your car stereo is equipped to automatically change when Daylight Saving Time begins and ends. If it hasn't changed at 2 a.m. of the time-changing date, you know it isn't equipped for this. In that case, set the hour either forward or backward and the appropriate time of the year.

    • 5

      If you can't figure out how to set the clock on your car stereo, wait until noon on any given day, disconnect your car battery and reconnect it.

Since the time change I can't reset my clock. It


If your clock radio is more than two years years old it will be operating on the old changeover schedule, and there's no way that you can change the schedule. What you can do though, is turn the DST switch (if so equipped) to the OFF position and change the time manually. If yours is an "atomic" clock you can force the change by setting the clock to a different time zone. (I have an atomic clock that's set up on the old schedule. DST is OFF, and I change the zone between the Central and Eastern time zones.)

My Emerson clock radio was manufactured in 2001. Model #CKS2000N; S/N10339233BA. Need to set clock for DST. I do not have a "month" year button - only a "time" year button. Can you help? Thank you


For this model Clock radio you will have to call Emerson Customer support at this telephone number.1-800-909-1240 between the hours of 8am-4:30pm CT. Tell them the make and model number of your Clock/Radio and ask them for assistance. You will probably be told that,your Clock/Radio has no updating feature. This is because at that time there was no need for such a feature. The best way to get the new features is to buy a new Clock/Radio. Thank you for using FixYA and have a nice day.

1. Turn the radio on

2. Press and hold in the on/off-volume-clock control

3. While holding the on/off-volume-clock button in, press the left(-) side of the "TUNE" button to advance the hours and the right (+) side to advance the minutes.

Note: The clock displays 12-hour time with no A.M. /P.M. indications

These instructions come from the Electronic Sound Systems manual that I have with my van. Hope this helps.

How to set time/alarm GE Auto Clock Set Radio Model 7-4892A


What I have found with my alarm clock like this one is that you CANNOT be soft on it. When setting the time, hold down the F or R button extra hard. I know that seems odd, but it works!
