    I just got two of these for my daughters for Christmas and have the exact same problem. It says in the manual to make sure the power is off when you dock the iPod but every time you turn the docking station off it resets time and date. It's plugged into AC power and also has battery back-up.

    I just bought this for my daughter for Christmas and we can't figure out how to keep the time displaying. We plan to return to the store and asks the "Geek Squad" for help.

    We have the same problem. Is this a design feature?

    I have the same problem. I got around it by not turning off the the power button, but changing the source button before and after I dock the Ipod. However, I don't know if this will ruin my Ipod. So far, it hasn't.

I found this solution by reading some reviews. A reviewer said it was caused by a weak backup battery that powers the display. He said to change the lithium backup battery of the main unit with the backup battery in the remote. I tried it and now it works. I can turn the unit on and off and it doesn't reset my memory. But this hasn't solved my problem with setting the alarm.

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.

I can't set the time, the alarm time, or do anything of that sort


AHAH! I had this problem also, so i tried google and it led me here. Luckily, I kept trying and figured it out so I will share my knowledge with you although you may have found it out already...
First, make sure the radio and ipod are off and it's in clock display mode.
Then, click and hold "alm set" while clicking the left "timer set" arrow to set the hour of your alarm and the right "timer set" arrow to set minutes for your alarm.
Then click "alm on/off" to turn it on and off.
