Question about GE RP4842 Clock Radio

2 Answers

Alarm I don't have the instruction manual for this radio.Intermittently the alarm goes off - and I simply want to know, how to disable (have it in non alarm mode).The radio works fine, it is just the alarm going off, when I don't want it to. There is a "set" panel on the top/side, with a four positon slide switch - key icon;time;wake1;wake2. There are also wake1 button;wake2 button;cancel button in another cluster on the top. I would appreciate info on how to set the alarm, so it doesn't go off. Thanks.

Re: alarm

While on key push cancel (alarm dots blink) then push wake 1 or wake 2 (which ever one you pushed the light for it should disappear)

I can't make the radio come on when Alarm is set? How do you make the radio come on?

I presume you are talking about a bedside radio alarm.

when you set the alarm this will turn off the radio and the radio will only come on when the alarm goes off or you disable the alarm.

you can get some models where you can select Radio only or alarm only, hope this helps

How to turn off alarm on GE radio Model 7-4853c

The manual says to "DISABLE THE ALARM PERMANENTLY" you should:

"Press and hold WAKE 1 or WAKE 2 until the green indicator disappears."

I did this and the light indicator to the right of the clock digital readout went out after a few seconds. I won't know until tomorrow if the alarm is permanently disabled.

I purchased an RCA Radio/CD player, with the manual showing the numbers RP5605 and RP5605R on it. However, I cannot set the clock, alarm, etc. because everything in the manual's instructions is NOT in

To use the worry-free backup battery, get a 9V battery. Then look for the battery compartment on the bottom of the unit. Press the tab with your thumb and then lift the cover out and away. Plug in the battery and then replace the cover.

Press Wake Time once and use the forward/reverse buttons to set the alarm time. Then press Wake Mode repeatedly to toggle between the options of wake to radio, wake to CD, or wake to alarm. (Note the radio must be tuned to your desired station and a CD needs to be in the player for these to work).

The Smart Snooze means that pressing Snooze, forward, reverse, play or stop will turn off the alarm temporarily. (Pressing Off will prevent the alarm from sounding again today.)

The English version of the manual for the RP5605 clock radio is available here: .

I hope this helps.

How do I disable the alarm on Bose AWR1-1W? Thanks

To cancell the alarm mode is described in it user manual [page 21]. It is very difficult to type thos symbols here by this window. Just follow the manual. It says, press alarm mode button either on its control panel or on the remote control until the display shows 'no alarm mode' indications. If you don't have the manual send your email address to me by FixYa. I'll send a copy of it to you by return mail. OK.
