Radio of Durabrand Clock Radio WA-211C plays every hour on the ho
This radio is, I believe a few years old and has recently been given to me. However, even when alarm is not set, it still comes on on the hour for a few seconds, this happens through the night and keeps waking me up! Have I not set the radio properly? Your help would be appreciated, as the item is obviously out of guarantee now.

Thank you very much for your reply; I think I may have solved the problem by changing the Time settings to 24 Hour, rather than a.m. / p/m. I did this yesterday evening and the radio didn't come on every hour for a few seconds as it had been doing so I'm hoping this solves the problem, although there doesn't seem to be a logical reason why it should! I haven't yet tried setting the alarm function, so I can't be 100% certain that the problem has gone but I am hopeful.
On the basis that I had tried everything else, this seemed to be the only (last) possibility available; once again thank you very much for your reply - I don't know whether this solution is helpful to you.

You must try to reset the microprocessor in the Clock/Radio. To do this you must unplug the Clock/Radio from the A/C power source.Then remove the Internal battery(CR2430). Let the Clock/Radio set without a power source for about 3 hours. This will discharge the microprocessor and reset it. After you have discharged the microprocessor,you can reinstall the internal battery. Connect the Clock/Radio to the A/C power source. The Clock/Radio's Functions should have returned to normal function. If the Clock/Radio did not return to normal function, you must replace the internal battery and again let the microprocessor discharge. After the microprocessor has discharged,put in the new internal battery and reconnect the Clock/Radio to the A/C power source. The Clock/Radio should have returned to normal function. If you are still having problem with the functions of the Clock/Radio, You will have to call Emerson Customer Support. The telephone number for the Emerson customer support is 1-800-909-1240. you can call them between the hours of 8am-4:30pm CT. Give them the make and model number of the Clock/Radio and ask them for assistance. I hope this information help you with your problems with the Clock/Radio. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day!
Problem was solved. When clock was plugged in after a few more days, it finally stopped flickering and reported an incorrect time and day. Low battery was now blinking! Checked calendar and found all memory was lost. Purchased and installed a new battery and this time when clock was plugged in it correctly set itself! Fixed.
Believe it or not, Radio Shack carries quite a few replacement antennas.. whether they have one for your specific radio or not I'm not sure, but they're worth a try. If you can bring your old antenna with you to make sure the mounting is the same, might save you a return trip.
