Question about Clock Radios

Open Question

Sharper Image SI321 -  I cannot get clock to function after changing the battery. I'm getting power (charges my iPod) and the display light goes on, but there is no actual numbers displayed and none of the buttons work ... set, radio, soother. Is there an internal reset button?  Thanks, Phil

    The second si321 we pruchased is not anything like the first unit we purchased. Second unit does not hold the time or alarm time-unit keeps returning to 12:00 am. The display flashed low battery and after changing out the 9v battery, the unit had to be reset for time/alarm etc (odd considering the bottom of the unit states the 9v battery is for clock backup) even with the unit still plugged in to the wall. Now there are no display numbers - only the blue back light - no sounds,etc

Johnny, push "mode" once. The alarm symbol blinks. It is also displaying the alarm mode. Pushing "display" changes the alarm source. Bill

SOURCE: Bose radio display doesn't show at all

I just posted a similar problem and did 2 more minutes of research on this site to figure it out. Hold down the 'cd mode' and press the on/off button. This turns the display on or off.

SOURCE: Magnavox CD Player Clock Radio not working

This Clock/Radio/CD player has had component failure problems. The unit is probably not worth repairing. The reason is the parts and repair information is probably very limited. The cost of the repair with parts and labor will be expensive. This repair would probably cost you more than just buying a new Clock/Radio/CD player. I hope this information helps you with your problem. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day!

Fried, not destroyed

The old Sharper Image went bankrupt several years ago. The new Sharper Image does not provide support for old Sharper Image products. You might be able to find a similar product available from the new Sharper Image.

I have the S1721 Travel Soother Radio Alarm Clock. It has stopped & a radio technician said it can't be fixed. It is THE best radio on the planet because it has a radio timer. I cannot find anything...

I came home and found a weird display showing 12 00 and ______f. Nothing worked, even when I unplugged it and took the batteries out. (I really, really like this clock radio so I wanted to find a solution).

I looked for a "reset" button and found one in the back inside the battery case (you have to remove the battery case cover). I took a pin and pressed it into the reset slot. I had to do this several times, turning it on/off and pressing several buttons and plugging, unplugging the clock/radio. It cycled through several times, then slowly the functions started to return, almost one function at a time. After several cycles of this, it turned itself back on and started working again!

Need 12 hour setting instead of 24 hour

I owned mine for years. This seems to happen when the power goes out. Push the mode button twice to get into the time set section. Once you are there, just keep pushing the mode button until the "pm" notification shows up on the digital display in the upper left corner. Once you get that use the 1-4 keys to set the clock. Good luck.

No sound from radio or CD

First, do you have a cord to plug it in? Make sure it's plugged in. Then turn the unit upside down. Inside the battery department is a "reset" slot. Insert the tip of an unbent paperclip into the opening to reset the unit, display and memory..

Press the power button located on the lower half of the unit and adjust the volume switch located on the lower left of the unit. Sharper Image is out of business. The licensing has been bought by another company. Their customer service number is 877-714-7444. They are not servicing older units but may be able to offer some assistance. The number for spare parts is 888-856-6781.

Sharper Image S1785 Clock Settings

When setting-up the time (by pushing the "mode" button), the alarm time set comes up first, followed by the time set.
When setting the proper hour in this mode, simply continue through the military "24 hour" cycle and the second cycle of 24 hours will be in the 12 hour format.
Continue through and finish the mode set-up function and your up and running. --

12 hour vs 24 hour read on clock

Push the "mode" button twice to enter the time change function. Once the display is blinking keep pushing the mode button until you see the "pm" icon on the LCD display. When that happens set the clock as you normally would using the 1-4 keys.

Remember to check if the 12 hour clock is set to AM or PM.

Good luck.

Buttons not working.....

In the battery compartment is a small button marked "reset". Push this in after the batteries are installed and the buttons should work. You will have to reset everything.
