Sony ICF-CD855V clock radio no power

I'm trying to locate information on the power supply for the clock radio. The unit has no indication that there is power to the unit and I am trying to find a replacement supply or the power supply output specifications. The power supply plugs into the wall with a low voltage cable to the unit.

Transformer wire that connected to one of the AC terminals was broken. Soldered a jumper wire between the terminal and the transformer. The most difficult part was finding a tool to remove the 3 triangle headed screws from the power supply, ended up making my own tool.

Fm reception for weak stations poor. reception on car radio fine.

If there is no FM Antenna connection you can try to move the power cord to different positions and see if you get a better signal. If not then move the unit closer to a window or try various locations that might have better reception.

I need help setting the alarm on my radio controlled digital clock.

1- Turn over your Seth Thomas digital clock. Use your finger to remove the cover to the unit's battery compartment. Insert two AA-size alkaline batteries into the battery compartment and replace the cover. Certain Seth Thomas digital clock units will also have an optional alternate power source in the form of a standard AC power cable that plugs into a wall outlet in your home.

  • 2 Place your Seth Thomas solar-powered digital clock in front of a light source, such as on a window sill or beneath a lamp. The black strip on the top of the unit is the solar sensor, so as long as light is shining down on that strip, your clock will be powered on and ready to use. The sensor stores energy throughout the day so that it can work at night with no direct light contact on the sensor.

  • 3 Press the time zone button that indicates your current time zone. These buttons are located on the back of the unit. For example, if you are in the eastern time zone select the "EST" button. Turn the unit back over. It will now be displaying the correct time on its digital screen.

  • 4 Use the "Alarm" switch (if applicable) to enable and disable the clock's alarm. Press the "Alarm" button, followed by the "Hour" and "Minute" buttons, to set the appropriate alarm time based on your needs. Use the "Alarm HI LO" switch to set the volume for the alarm.

  • 5 Press the "Weather" button to tune your Seth Thomas digital clock to its built-in local weather radio station (if applicable). Certain Seth Thomas clocks have this radio weather functionality built in, while others don't. If yours does, the aforementioned "Weather" button will be located on the front of the unit.

    No 6V power via power adapter to Sony ICF-SW7600GR

    Could be a diode or a capacitor. Where are you located?

    How to set clock clok tcr368

    Setting the CLOK TCR368 is done by having the unit:
    Turned OFF - The power button is located at the top left face of the unit.
    Press and hold the CLOCK/DISPLAY/PLAY/PAUSE button for at least 4 seconds. (It is located to the right of the power button at the upper left corner of the unit.) Do not let go of the button.
    While holding down the CLOCK/DISPLAY/PLAY/PAUSE button, press the HOUR and MINUTE buttons to the correct time.
    Release thethe CLOCK/DISPLAY/PLAY/PAUSE button.

    The backup battery is to keep the clok circuit running in case of a power failure and can't be used to power the radio.

    With the unit OFF, press and hold the FUNCTION button (located between the ipod slot and the snooze button) for at least 2 seconds. The display will flash either 12 hour or 24 hour depending what mode it is in.
    Release the FUNCTION button and press it once to change the mode.
    Press again to cycle between the 12 hour and 24 hour mode.
    When the display indicates the mode you prefer, simply wait 2 seconds for the clock to go into that mode without pressing anything.

    300mA is marginal. On CD start unit draws a little over 400mA for about 1/2 second. At moderate CD audio levels the unit draws right at 300 and at full volume 400mA.
    Be certain of the polarity and voltage . On the unit I have the wire with the white stripe is negative. If you are using a non-regulated supply, the voltage could be higher than rated. I am using a 9.5 volt non-regulated supply and after input filtering I have 11.5 volts across the input cap, that is rated @16VDC
    A non-regulated 12VDC supply will probably exceed this 16VDC

    Measurements taken with Fluke 23 and Simpson 160
