Display does not show complete numbers and radio plays without the radio being turned on

It has worked fine until a few days ago. You can now hear the radio playing softly even when the radio switch is not turned to on. The second problem is that the display where the time shows up shows a random pattern and does not display any complete numbers. It seems like it is trying to display the numbers but parts of them are missing. Any suggestions on what could be causing this? Both problems started at the same time.

Our Ferguson FRG-CR100D DAB Alarm Clock Radio has lost its digital display - it just shows 16 illuminated blank oblongs in the display panel. It doesn't respond to pressing any buttons, e.g. DAB/Clock,...

I experienced a similar problem some time ago. I thought I was responsible for the problem because I run the radio of a dual voltage shaver socket and accidentally switched the socket output to 110v. From that point on the radio did excactly what you described. I perservered in trying to find out why but to no avail so I abandoned it. Some months later out of curiosity I plugged it, switched it on and it worked perfectly.
Try leaving it unplugged for a few days (which by this time will have already passed). It may just recover like mine did.

After a few months, the CD player stopped working. It doesn't spin, and it shows "no" in the clock display

Each CD Player has a potentiometer to adjust the laser assembly alignment. The T609t CD player has a tiny pot of 2000 Ohms (2K) about 1/8 x 1/8 of an inch on a tiny printed circuit board right under the laser assembly. I tried adjusting its value with no success. The wiper was not making contact with the carbon layer below it. I removed it and soldered in 2 wires of 6 inches to work out of the box. I attached at the end of the 2 wires a small printed circuit board of 1/2 x1/2 inch to solder a new pot of 1000 Ohms in series with 50 Ohms resistor. I started increasing the pot value until about 700 Ohms and immediately the Player showed 01 on the display and started to play IL DIVO songs. Obviously after each new setting of the pot I had to repeat the same routine: Power off, power on, hit Play, see No CD message on the display until I found the right initial value on the pot. I still had to tweek it up toward 750 Ohms because it was skipping a bit of song number 8. It is working fine now.
I taped my mod, tucked it in the box and closed the whole thing until the next time it will go out of alignment.
The pot I am using is bigger (3/8x3/8x1/4) it takes 44 turns of 180 deg to sweep it from 0 to 1000 Ohms. The old pot is swept from 0 to 2000 Ohms in one turn of 120 deg. The 50 Ohms resistor was for safety in case I hit 0 Ohms on the pot. I kept it in the mod in case I want to hook a scope.

Emerson Research Clock w/Projection Display Not Working

You will need to reset the microprocessor in the Clock/Radio. To do this you must unplug the Clock/Radio and remove the internal battery. Let the Clock/Radio set for at least 1 hour and then put the battery back in and plug in the Clock/Radio. The functions should return to normal. If not, replace the battery (CR2430) and leave the Clock/Radio unplug for a period of hours. Then put in the new battery and and plug in the Clock/Radio to see if the functions have returned to normal. If not you may have a more serious problem with the microprocessor. You can call the Emerson customer support at this telephone number 1-800-898-9020 between the hours of 7am-5pm 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 problem.

Spilled iced tea in clock radio/CD player

Sounds like there's still a real mess inside and it's either shorting out circuits or insulating the button contacts with the sugary residues. Best bet is take it to a repair shop since it will have to be opened up, fully dried and cleaned. You can try drying it out yourself if you're confident opening up stuff or just let it sit by a warm air vent a few days. What kind of functions or buttons are not working? Can it play audio/ set the time/ change from AM to FM....?

Projection display

I had the some problem a few days ago when we had a power outage during the night. Try unplugging it, leave it unplugged for about 10-20 seconds, and replug it back in. Reset your time on the clock and it should work then.
