No sound.


Read the manual. The radio may have been set to some defaults, although the time was not correct. When you started setting the time, it is possible that you should have run through the whole setup. For example some radios have different ranges for the FM bands: there is a Japanese band that starts at 76 MHZ, and ends at 108 MHz; there is the standard FM band from 88 MHz to 108 MHz; and a school band (I can't remember its range).
For AM the gap between neighboring positions may be set at 9 kHz or 10 kHz depending on the location (region or continent).
I suggest you get the manual and see if there is an initial setup procedure, then follow it.

I have an Eton G3 recently purchased which has an operators manual, but does not contain any references to the layout of the buttons etc. I would like a link to find out the correct use of the radio


The buttons are marked and the use of most of them is self-evident.
The number keys are used to enter frequencies (direct tuning).
Lock locks the radio and prevent changes (trurning ON or OFF, changing frequency, any function change is blocked)
Sleep sets a timer.
+, - go up or down in frequency, or when you are setting time.
U/LSB is for toggling Upper or Lower Side Bands.
Auto Up and Auto Down are for the automatic tuning system (scanning the frequency spectrum)
AM is for switching to the AM (medium wave band)
AM/Meter band is for switching to the Short wave bands, and FM is for Frequency modulation band.
VOL + and - increase and decrease volume levels

Page/time: It has 700 memory locations to store frequencies. These are organized in pages (maybe up to 100 pages). You jump to next page with that button. Used also when setting time . Please read the instructions.

F1 to F7 are used to select the day for the alarm. F1 for Day 1, Sunday, F2 for Monday, etc) You can set an alarm for each day of the week.
Reset to reset configuration
TZ/Line in TZ set time zone, Line In if you wan to use the speaker of the radio as the output device for a signal from some other radio, or MP3 player
The tuning knob may also be used to change the displayed value while setting time (I can't remember exactly. You have the manual)
Erase erasing a stored frequency or a page (Check that)
Copy see above.

I have a Ford Focus C-Max Trend 2004 I cannot tune in the time and Date on Radio/CD 6000 don't have a instruction manual book for this can you please helop


The manuals can be found here, http://fordfcsd.wunderman.be/UK/Audio%20-%20Multimedia%20-%20Navigation/
Push the menu button to get to the time settings, go across to get to hours / mins. You can adjust these by turning the dial for both hours AND minute settings, otherwise when the power is turned off and on again it will reset the clock to the previous setting. After setting correct time continue to scroll to day/month/year and then press menu to set time and then go back to the main menu.

I bought my Midland WR-100 Weather Radio in 2008, from Walmart {Midwest City, OK}. They programmed it there, for Oklahoma County, and surounding Countys as well. It worked the 1st year, continuely as many...


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night, depending on the time of day you are reading this. From what you are requesting here, you want weather alerts for only for Oklahoma County? Here are the steps for doing this.

  1. If you need the S.A.M.E code for Oklahoma County, type this URL address into your URL box (http://www.weather.gov/nwr/CntyCov/nwrOK.htm).
  2. Scroll down and find your county name and the S.A.M.E code will be located right beside it.
  3. Obtain your Weather Radio and press the MENU button.
  4. Use the directional up or down buttons until you see the word "SAME SET" on your screen. Once this is seen, press SELECT.
  5. You will either see the words "SINGLE", "MULTIPLE", or "ANY" on your screen. When this is seen, press SELECT if you see "SINGLE". Use the directional up or down buttons (if "SINGLE" does not appear on your screen) until "SINGLE" is displayed on the screen. Once this is seen, press SELECT.
  6. You will see the words SAME 01 on your screen. Once this is seen, press SELECT.
  7. Using the directional up or down buttons, program the first number of the code in the blinking column. When finished, press the > (directional right) button as this will automatically save the number and advance you to the next column.
  8. Continue Step 7 until all numbers are programmed in the radio.
  9. When finished, press SELECT as this will store and automatically save your code.
  10. Press MENU to exit.
If you followed these steps correctly, your radio should now be programmed to respond to only one county. To set it to respond to multiple counties again, follow these steps, only this time instead of choosing "SINGLE" you will choose "MULTIPLE". The "alarm not stopping until it's turned off", is a normal function and should not be tampered with. Hope this will come in handy in the future, especially during Tornado Season, as you state is in the region known as "Tornado Alley". This radio will keep you notified, informed on what's happening weather-wise and could possibly save your life from Mother Nature's threats. Thank you for taking the time to request your problem, read and perform this solution. Thank you for choosing FixYa as your one-stop spot for finding solutions to your problems! Be safe this Tornado Season and have a good day, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time you are reading this.

Sangean h2o1 clock is flashing. The radio display doesn't flash - only the clock. I've reset the clock, changed the batteries, and generally played with the other settings. Can't figure out why the time...


Here's the thing: When you change the batteries, the radio thinks you need to reset the time, even though the time has been preserved and is correct even after you change the batteries. Here's what you do: Pretend you need to reset the time. With the radio off (recommended), press and hold the "Band" button with the "set" notation underneath it. The hour will flash. "Reset" the hour by using the tuning buttons, as you would if the radio were new, and then change it back to the correct hour. Press the "Band" button again and repeat the process for the flashing minute display. Press "Band" again to end the process. You will have successfully fooled the H201 into thinking that you have reset the time, and the time display will have stopped flashing. (This does not appear to work if you do not actually pretend to change the hour and minute and just keep pressing the "Band" button -- you have to go through the procedure as though you were actually changing the time.)

Changing Time Setting


It is not intuitive, but the way to set the time is as follows:
1) be ready with your reference time - like your wristwatch with a second hand
2) make sure the YB is OFF (important!!!)
3) press the TIME I/II key so that you see the YB display TIME I. This is IMPORTANT!
4) you will be entering the time in 24 hour format WITH a leading zero if necessary!!!
5) at about 3 seconds BEFORE your time mark, key in the time with the following keystrokes:

H,H,decimal point,M,M

6) IMMEDIATLY press the TIME I/II key !!! This is VERY important!!!
You get only about 1 second of time to press this key after you enter the unit minutes.
If you miss the window, it shows an error or reverts to the wrong time.

The only way to sync the seconds is to time it just right with your reference.

If you want to set Time II, FIRST set Time I, THEN press the TIME I/II key to get the
display to show TIME II. Then you can enter the TIME II time in 24 hour format, H,H,decimal point, M,M, then TIME I/II. You don't have to worry about syncing the seconds for TIME II - it is locked to TIME I.

F.Y.I. -- This time I am prepared - I put these instructions on a sticker behind the folding stand on the back of the YB so I don't have to search for the stupid manual again!
