I have problems with my small Matsui clock radio. When I bought it two years
ago I lived just an hour from where I live now and it worked nicely.
Now I'm staying at university residences and I have terrible reception,
while someone in the next building has no problems with the same radio.
I can't get many of the stations that are supposed to be available, but
even the ones I do, what happens is, even if I manage to find a
position of the antenna where it is clear enough, after a while it's
gone again, so I keep fiddling around with the antenna all day. Some
seem to become nice and clear when I put my hand over a certain part of
the radio, or next to it, depending on the station. That's obviously
not a feasible solution. So I wondered what it is about my hand, if
there's something I can replace it with.

Hold CLOCK SET button down, press HOURS and MINUTES until you get the right time, release CLOCK SET button. This radio alarm unhelpful calls the ON/OFF button "STANDBY"! To turn it on, press the STANDBY button so the standby light is on!
Successful reception of the time-synchronization radio signal is indicated by a radio waves icon to the right of seconds in the upper section of the display. After synchronization occurs, you can select your continental U.S. time zone (EST, CST, MST, or PST) by means of a switch on the back of the clock.
You may have a problem with the lithium battery. They have a three year shelf life and sometimes power surges or outages will reduce the life of the battery. You can try replacing the battery and see if the clock returns to normal operation.The battery type is a CR2430. This battery is sold at most electronic stores and some large drugstores and supermarkets. Fry's Electronics and Radio Shack carry them. If this does not fix the problem you may want to contact Emerson customer support at this telephone number 1-800-898-9020. Give them the model number of your clock radio and the problem you are having with the clock. I hope this information help you with your Problem.
Hi Time zone setting Language Setting The weekdays can be displayed in LCD1 with the pre-set languages: US English, French and Spanish. 1. Set the desired language for the weekday display in LCD 2 by use of the+key. 2. Press theSETkey to enter the mode“Manual Time Setting”.
Manual Time Setting In case the Skyscan Atomic Clock is not able to detect the WWVB-signal (disturbances, transmitting distance, etc.), the time can be manually set. The clock will then work as a normal Quartz clock. Note: In 12 hours mode the time will be displayed with an additional“PM”for the time from 12:00 noon until 11:59. 1. The hour digits will start flashing on LCD1. Set the desired hours by pressing the+key followed by pressing theSETkey. 2. Now the minute digits will start flashing. Set the desired minutes by pressing the+key . If the + key is held, the units will increase by 5. 3. Press theSETkey to move to the“Year Setting”. Note: The unit will still try and receive the signal every day despite it being manually set. When it does receive the signal, it will change the manually set time into the received time. During reception attempts the WWVB tower icon will flash. If reception has been unsuccessful, then the WWVB tower icon will not appear but reception will still be attempted the following hour. WWVB time reception takes place from 12:00 am through 6:00 am each day (attempts WWVB reception every full hour within this time frame). When the time signal is received for example at 1:00 am, the Skyscan Atomic Clock will not attempt to receive the WWVB signal for the remaining hours until 6:00 am. Therefore, the next signal attempt will take place between 12:00 am and 6:00 am the next day. The other times WWVB reception takes place, are upon setup and after manual time set exiting mode. Reception is generally not possible during daylight hours due to the interference of the sun.
I had such a pb.
IC 103 CX7961 stopt to oscillate after ~30s ...
so the plls ref was out
I changed it without results
In fact the plastic trimmer C138 (4-20pf) was bad???( insulation?)
Since changing (10 years ago) : no problem
