Question about GE 7-4836 Clock Radio

1 Answer

Strange fixed display for GE 7-4612B clock radio

The clock cannot be set and only displays what appears to be:

1P:G8

The hook on the `G' isn't there but other than that this is how it looks.

It has worked well for a long time. It has no battery but has worked without it all this time.

Thanks for any ideas or solutions...

I have this same problem with my clock radio, same model #. I have a feeling that this may mean this clock will be on its way to the dumpster very soon.

How do I set the time on Timex T231 clock radio?


Setting The Time of T231
NOTE: The time can only be adjusted when the clock radio is in the OFF mode. If the radio is playing, press and hold the MODE/ALM RESET button until the display briefly shows 'OFF' and then reverts to the time.
1. If the display is flashing, press the HOUR / REV button to advance the display to the correct hour. If the display is not flashing press and hold the CLOCK button until the display begins to flash, then press the HOUR / REV button to advance the display to the correct hour. Observe the PM indicator to confirm that you have set the hour correctly. If the PM indicator is 'On' the hour on the display is PM. If the PM indicator does not appear the hour on the display is AM.
2. Press the MIN / FF button to advance the display to the correct minute.
3. When the correct time is flashing on the display press the CLOCK / PRESET button once more. The display stops flashing and the clock begins to run.

The alarms can be set to wake two people at different times, or to have a main alarm and a backup.

My Coby CRA108 starting doing this after 6 months of use. Although I described the display as 1P:C8 since there is no key to properly display the character (hybrid of a G & C). I've left it unplugged and changed the backup battery with hopes it would reset. No luck so far. Anyone have success???

I have a bose awrc1p radio display light changes


This could be the battery causing the display to act strangely. If the radio still works audio-wise, the following should fix the display: The older model wave radios have either a 9v or 3 AA batteries (accessible from the bottom). Remove any battery, and reset the system by unplugging the power cord for about 40 seconds. Plug it back in without the battery attached. If the problem goes away- replace the battery or batteries. (which is only there to hold the clock time, presets etc when not plugged in) BTW- you'll have to set the clock, alarm, presets etc after this procedure. If the problem doesn't go away, call Bose. I think they can repair this for $99 and/or offer a new one as a trade-in discounted.

Complicated GE clock radio/CD player


To set the time:
Hit the SET Wake/Time Button closest to the CD player until the clock face appears in the bottom left hand of the display.

Use the TRACK Rev Search Fwd Arrows to adjust the time.
Rev will decrease by minutes and Fwd will increase by minutes.

Hope this helps.
