Sharper Image S1785 Clock Settings

Bill, how do change the clock back from 24 to a 12 hour? You fixed the alarm so well - now I need help on switching back from the 24 hour clock.

Thanks,

Ed

    Somehow the setting changed to display 24 hour format instead of regular 12 hour format. How can I get it back to showing "regular" times instead of "military" time? This thing is so not-user-friendly!

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. --

Need manual for Travel Companion Model S1500 Alarm Clock


Travel alarm clocks can have varying instructions, depending on the type of clock you are using. Here are some tips for use that will apply to any alarm clock.

  1. Power source
    • Travel alarm clocks will need to have some sort of power source. Depending on the type of alarm clock, it might be battery-powered or it might have a cord that needs to be plugged in. Battery-powered alarm clocks can take mini watch batteries, AAA batteries or sometimes AA batteries. Travel alarm clocks, because of their tiny size, usually have the small batteries that need to be bought from a watch store or a dollar store. Before you leave, make sure you have a working power source and can turn it on.
    Changing the time
    • After you reach your final destination, power the alarm clock on. Now you'll need to set the time and date correctly. Check a watch, cell phone or television to get the exact time and locate the buttons or dials on your alarm clock. On some, there will be a "time" or an "hour" button you need to press and hold to activate the alarm time change. While you are holding it down, turn the dial, press the hour button or press the (+) button until you notice a time change. On others, simply pressing the hour or minute button will let you change the time shown.
    Setting AM/PM
    • The AM/PM option is critical in setting your alarm clock correctly. Make sure the LCD display on your clock has a light beside the correct AM or PM setting, or look for the letters AM or PM on the display. If you get this wrong, the alarm won't go off in the morning!
    Setting alarm time
    • To set the alarm time, look for a button or a switch that says alarm. If there is a switch, move it to the alarm setting. If it is a button, you'll need to hold it down until the time starts flashing, signaling time to change the hours and minutes to the desired alarm time, or hold it down while you press the hours and minutes buttons to reach the alarm time you want.
    Turn alarm on
    • Now double-check that your regular and alarm times are correct by switching the switch back and forth again, or by pressing the alarm/time buttons long enough to read the time set. There should be a picture of a bell somewhere on your LCD display showing that the alarm is set to "on." If there isn't, look for the on/off alarm button and move it to the correct position.
    Music options
    • The last step is finding the alarm wake-up option. Not all travel alarm clocks have this option, but if yours does there will be a switch or button that lets you choose to wake up by a buzzer, the radio, a CD, or another device.

Can not get the clock or alarm off the 24 hour clock!!! very annoying!!




  1. Try pressing the "MODE" button until the time setting flashes.
  2. Now press the "2" button (right under the screen) and simply advance the clock past 24:00 and the clock will enter 12 hour mode again.


  • Now the time and alarm will be in regular 12 hour time as well automatically.
  • If for some reason it is not then just reset the alarm by
  1. Pressing "MODE" until the alarm time and icon flashes on the screen.
  2. Press "1" to decrease and "2" to increase hours.
  3. Press "3" to decrease and "4" to increase
  4. Press "5" to select the alarm volume.
  5. Press ALM "OFF/ON" to activate/deactivate the alarm.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I need a manual for the Timex T229B clock radio. I can't even figure out how to turn off the alarm. Please tell me how I can find one - preferably free. Thanks, Patty.


I can't find the Timex T229B on the Timex support site. However, the T228B may be similar. To turn off the alarm completely, there is a switch on the left side that must be set to Off. The switch is labeled Alarm on one side and Radio on the other. In between are 4 positions - from front to back, Radio, Buzz, Off and On. When in the Off position the alarm indicator symbol will not be lit at the top left of the display (it looks a bit like a bell). The dimmer switch is in front of this Alarm/Radio switch on this side of the clock.

To turn off the alarm and reset it for the next day, press the Alarm Set/Reset button to the right of the hour and minute buttons. The Snooze button is the large button to the left of the hour and minute buttons.

Timex alarm clock and clock radio manuals are available here: http://www.timexaudio.com/product_manuals.asp .

I hope this helps.

My clock jumps an hour ahead, how do I fix it?


Make sure that you have the clock set for the correct time zone, and that the DST feature is switched ON. If those settings are correct, try replacing the batteries. Weak batteries frequently cause an atomic clock to "jump" one hour in either direction.

I hope this helps.

Daylight savings time changes at wrong date on my brookstone 'smartset' alarm clock. (It changes at the old date, of course - so it is wrong 4 times a year...)


The DST schedule is hardwired into the older clocks and cannot be modified to run on the new schedule. If the clock has a DST switch, you can can turn it OFF and reset the clock only twice a year. On my old "ATOMIC" clock, I've set the DST function OFF, and I use the time zone switch for my adjustments. Sorry, but your only other choice is a new clock.
