Re: Can not set the clock

Setting the clock as addressed in the user manual is incorrect. It states to use the "Function" button to access clock settings. Actually, you have to turn the unit off, and then hold the "On/Off" button until you see the clock begin to flash signaling that it's awaiting your input. You can use the arrow buttons now. Hope this helps. Don't forget to vote please.:)

Re: Can not set the clock

Here's what I had to do.
- turn off radio
- press and hold SOURCE (SRC) button (top left of radio - the on/off button) for a few seconds then release when the hour starts blinking
- use the up/down buttons to change the hour
- use the left/right buttons to switch to change minutes
- use the up/down buttons to change the minutes
- press SRC button again to turn on radio - you're done!

Re: Can not set the clock

Bradley, you suggestion makes a lot of sense. The clock has been a source of frustration for my husband and I as we have not been able to set the clock. Have not tried it as yet, but I am happy that this seems plausible. Thanks a million!!!

Yesterday I installed the Pioneer DEH-2050MPG in an old Beetle I just bought, and had the same problem. The instructions were completely useless; Ignore them.

Here's how to set the time...

1. Hold the source button down until clock starts flashing.
2. Use arrow buttons to set time.
3. Press source again to save.

That's what worked for me.

Time change!

Yes, the instructions in the manual are wrong.
Just follow the Best Solution here and you'll be able to set the time.

In my case, all I had to do was turn off the radio by holding the SRC for a few seconds. Then I just pressed SRC again and voila, the hour on the clock display started blinking and it was a simple matter to just use the arrow keys to set the hour and minute.

I didn't have to press the SRC and function at the same time.

But if it wasn't for the posting here, I wouldn't have been able to figure it out because I assumed that the manual was correct!

So sometimes the manual can be wrong!!

The last posting was wrong! Just because you can't figure it out doesn't mean you have to throw the radio out. This car radio is great!! and I can even connect my iPOD to it.

Thanks FixYa!

Time setting

Make sure unit is off by pressing and holding the 'Source' button. Wait 3 seconds, and then press and hold the 'Source' button. Do Not Release the button! A display reading "Initial" will show. Then use the arrow buttons surrounding the 'Source' to set clock. The 'Function' button isn't involved, dispite what the manuel states.

Can't set the clock

Directions say to turn power off, press and hold the "multi-control" key until language shows. Turn the dial to select the option to change. Use the "multi-control" key left or right to select the part of the clock to change, move the key up or down to change the time.

Select another option to save changes.

From the Pioneer Electronics website; How do I set the clock on my single CD player? For most Pioneer single CD players, you can set the clock using the following steps: 1.Press and hold the SOURCE button until the unit shuts off. 2.Press and hold SOURCE again until the clock appears. With some models you will press and hold the FUNCTION or AUDIO button instead of the SOURCE button. 3.Press the left or right arrow to select the segment of time you wish to adjust. 4.Press the up or down arrows to increase or decrease the numbers in the blinking segment. 5.Once the clock is set correctly, press the SOURCE button to exit.
