Re: Need to set time
These clocks uses the same family of IC's.
There should be a button labeled 'time' or 'time set'.
Push and hold this button, then press a button labeled 'H' or Hour, you should see the hour advance. In some models, if you press the button long enough, the advance rate will become faster. Press the button labeled 'M' or minutes and the same procedure applies.
After that release the 'Time' button

The T1251B has a small Phillips set screw at the top back of the unit that needs to be removed, and once removed, the top panel can be removed to reveal the button that allows you to set the clock time. A classic case of overengineering a simple clock function.
I've noticed that manually setting the clock forward or back by any number of minutes, results in the same time offset being displayed after unplugging - plugging back in. So, if it's 9pm and you set if 5 minutes fast (9:05pm). Then unplug it and plug it back in 30 minutes later (9:30pm), the clock will maintain your setting of 5 minutes ahead of the actual time (9:35).
I like to set my clocks 5 minutes fast, just to make me always think I'm running a bit late (sure, maybe I'm a bit crazy). But this "sticky" manual setting is kind of a nice feature in my opinion. I'm wondering if it's not intentional?
Anyway, just manually set it back to the real time, and it sho
I just found my manual for the Sharper Image SI785 CD/Radio Alarm Clock with Sound Soother. Had misplaced it for quite a while. Am not saavy enough to know how to post it online, but if anyone needs one, just email back your address and I'll be happy to send it. I remember how frustrating it has been trying to program/reprogram one without it. Looking forward now to knowing how to use this thing :)
UNPLUG!!! Wait 15 seconds. Plug in again, CLOCK will flash 12am.
Press "set" button ONCE.
Press Double Back Arrows |<< to go backward from Midnight
Press Double Forward Arrows |>> to go forward from Midnight
(Either press-hold the Double Arrows for quick minute-scroll or repeat-press Double Arrow for a slower minute-by-minute change.)
