    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.

Switch on akai58022 tower speaker, it worked when I got it today and now it wont even switch on


what do you have it plugged-into for power ? it uses the 8-pin Apple Lightning dock connector. If you are using a USB adapter for that, then be aware that a USB-port will only let you draw 500mA or 1/2 an Amp of power....more than that will cause failures and damage to the USB port and the Hub even.

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.

My ipod is just playing without the sound carrying through to the speakers. I dont know how to make it work?


Verify there is nothing plugged into the headset port, including headsets, headphones, or adapters.
Original iPhone only: While on the Home screen, adjust the volume buttons. If you see the icon below, indicating that headphones are attached, there may be debris in the headset port:



To remove debris in the headset port, try connecting a pair of headphones to the headset port and then remove the headphones. Repeat this several times.
If you have paired with a Bluetooth headset that is nearby, either use the headset or turn Bluetooth off (choose Settings > General > Bluetooth).
If that doesn't work, try restarting the iPhone. Hold the Sleep/Wake button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the Sleep/Wake button to turn it back on.
If restarting the iPhone doesn't resolve the issue, try restoring the device.

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 :-)
