Re: backligh

Here is the link to the user manual; They do not mention any backlight feature in the manual - looking at other similar models, they describe the procedure in the manual - you just have to press the snooze button to turn it on or off. might be worth a try. reading reviews of the clock there is supposed to be a blue backlight feature - try pressing display when in radio or cd mode and you should get a menu of display options - i imagine one of these will allow you to select backlight on/off If none of the above works then try contacting them directly (numbers are in the manual) check this link if you want more info as they are recently bought out) Hope this helps :)

Water damage

Deja Vu. I did exactly the same thing with my 1st generation Wave Radio in 1995. Like all electronics not made for scuba work, if you don't open the case and start blasting it with a hairdryer in the first few minutes of getting it wet your main circuit board is toast. When you turn it on does it make a rhythmic electronic death rattle sound? If yes, corrosion has destroyed the circuitry.
I don't know if the Bose of today is the same Bose Culture as when I fried mine but mine was 2 months past warranty. I took it to my local repair shop who told me they'd have to replace the main circuit board. Very discouraging but they told me Bose was very responsive to lovers of the product and if I wrote them a letter they might take pity on me. I wrote a letter extolling my love for the product (It was all true. I'd been looking for something non-jarring to wake up to for months before I bought this thing). No BS. I sent the letter and about a month later they sent me a letter with instructions for returning it to the factory and an RMA number. They replaced the main cicruit board for free and returned it to me. It worked flawlessly until 2009.
It's worth a try, but I mean it, send an Old School snail mail not an email. It makes a difference. Good luck and sorry. It's an expensive piece of equipment.

No instruction manual with item

Hi Ann This is a relatively new product so its not surprising you're struggling to find info online. I'd suggest contacting Hitachi cust services anyway:
Also, go along to Dixons because they do sell this item and just state that you bought one from there but there was no user manual. They can copy one for you there.

I called iHome today and was told you can buy the circuit board with dock for $13.50 from:
SDI Technology
135 Essex Ave.
Avenl, NJ 07001

You must pay by money order. It is $13.50 which includes shipping. Include a separate piece of paper with name and shipping address, model number and service number of product from tag.

Correct Time Zone

Using the Emerson CKD5809C manual (also with SmartSet(tm) ), try Zone 4. TIME ZONE button: "04".

Zone 1: Atlantic Time
Zone 2: Easter Time (Default)
Zone 3: Central Time
Zone 4: Mountain Time
Zone 5: Pacific Time
Zone 6: Yukon Time
Zone 7: Hawaiian Time


As for disabling the Daylight Saving Time (DST) time change I have some guesses to try (not having one of these radios in my hand) or just skip to #4 below.
1. Manually setting the time and see if this disables the DST change.
2. Is there a Zone setting other than above? Like maybe a Zone 0? And then manually set the time.
3. Look at for my solution there and try adjusting the DST Start to the same as DST End or DST Start and End with a month of 0 (if that is possible).
4. Or for the really desperate, change the Zone to 5 during DST and back to 4 during standard time (no worst off than with no DST auto setting.) (After I wrote this, I found an Emerson reference to no DST areas, Saskatchewan in this case, in the CKS1850C manual, pg 9, and this is their solution.)
