There is a loose connection for the display near where you pushed on it to get ti working again. It would either need to be replaced or opened up and fixed by someone with knowledge of electronics.

How can I set the time zone?


The DST is only based on GMT.

When daylight saving time (summer time) begins
The following models employ the Automatic Daylight Saving Time/Summer Time adjustment. The DST indicator in the display appears in the display at the beginning of the daylight saving time (summer time), and disappears at the end of it. Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment is based on GMT (Greenwich Mean Time).
• Summer time begins at: 1:00 AM on the final Sunday of March.
• Standard time begins at: 2:00 AM on the final Sunday of October

To cancel the Automatic DST/ Summer Time adjustment and
to set DST display manually
The Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment can be cancelled.
Press and hold DST for more than 3 seconds while the clock is displayed.
A beep sounds, and "Aut t OFF" appears in the display to show that the Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment is cancelled. The display returns to the clock.
Notes
• The change timing of Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment employed by the unit (see above) is subjected to variation by circumstances and the law in each country/region. In such a case, cancel the Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment and
set DST display manually as necessary. The customer who lives in the country/region that has not introduced the daylight saving time (summer time) must cancel Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment before using the set.
• To activate the Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment again, press and hold DST for more than 3 seconds. A beep sounds, and "Aut t On" appears in the display to show that the Automatic DST/
Summer Time adjustment is activated. The display returns to the clock.
• To change the display to the daylight saving time (summer time) manually, see "To change the display to the daylight saving time (summer time) indication."

Why doesnt my wave radio screen light up when the lights in theroom are on ?


That doesn't make sense does it? A few things first.... how bright are the lights in the room? Is the display of the WAVE facing the lights? The radio has a photo sensor that detects light, but for it to be effective, it has to "see" the light. It could be that you have a bad photo sensor, but I would try a few things first. 1. Make sure the light in the room is sufficiently bright. 2. Make sure the display is pointed in the direction of the light. 3. Make sure nothing is covering the photo sensor (like a piece of tape or something.... maybe a previous owner wanted to "turn off" the light". 4. If none of the above get you going, shine a flashlight at the photo sensor (a bright one). This should turn on the display. If this works (and nothing else did), that just means you ain't getting enough light to the sensor under your normal conditions and you will need to correct that underlying problem first,

Good luck!

How do i replace burned out lightbulb in my in my cambridge soundworks cd - 740 clock radio ?


I believe the problem is either a faulty light sensor the unit has to dim the display when the lights dim since it was designed for bedroom use with alrms and snooze button. or it is simply a failure in the circuit that drives the LCDs. Mine has been dim for a long time but I can still see just enough to adjust the sound settings. I tune and set stations by sound. so the display has not been an issue since we do not use it for a clock or alarm. I doubt there is a fix for the dim display.

The lcd display has become very dim on my sony dreammachine icf-c218 how do i brighten it up?


There is no adjustment on this model. Mine was too dim and the only way I was able to make the display brighter was by removing the front lens. I then used a nail and a knife to scratch and cut (from inside) the rectangular area of the lens in front of the display. It looked nice afterwards. If you need it dimmer, I would recommend putting a small shaded sheet behind the lens like the ones used for tinting car windows instead.

How do I set the time.It keeps jumping back to alarm time.Thanks


You can try downloading the owners manual from Sony's site. It looks to me like it may be a bit tricky without the instructions.
Give this a try.

Timex t439s clock display light out


The display on my clock is red as well. I found it that way when I came home from work today. It had lost all of its settings as well. I put everything back to the way it was supposed to be but I can't get the color to change. I guess something just quit.
