Try setting all three alarms to the current time and then slide the switch back to the locked position. You should see the correct time displayed. It works on mine.

How do i set the alarm on my ihome alarm dock?


Once the time is correct, users can move on to setting the alarm itself. Many iHome systems come with dual alarms allowing couples to set different times for each person or individuals to designate a weekday and weekend alarm. Each alarm has its own time, wake-to source, and frequency. The process of setting the alarm is the same for both options, the only difference is what button, either 1 or 2, users depress when setting it.

Once ready to set an alarm, users need to push and hold the button down, waiting for the alarm time to appear on the clock's display. From there, the up and down arrows or plus and minus buttons adjust the time backwards or forwards accordingly. Once that is complete, users select the frequency of the alarm by pressing the alarm button again and then opting for 7, 5, or 2, which correlates with all week, weekdays, and weekends respectively.

The final part to set is the wake source of the alarm. Users press alarm buttons one more time, and then use the same directional buttons to choose from iPhone and iPad on some models, radio, buzzer, or playlist. If users choose playlist, they must also setup a playlist within their Apple device titled iHome.

Because frequency is part of the alarm setting process, there is no need to turn on the iHome alarm manually as one would do with a normal alarm clock. However, users can check to see if the alarm is active by looking at the screen of the clock for the earliest alarm time, displayed on its lower part.
In the mornings, when the alarm sounds, users have two options: Snooze and disarm. The disarm process turns off the alarm until the next day in its frequency chain. Users disarm the alarm by pressing the power button. On the other hand, users must manually program the snooze button. Users do this by pressing and holding the snooze button and then toggling to the desired snooze time, generally between one and 29 minutes. Once this is set, users simply press the snooze button in the mornings to delay the replay of the alarm for that amount of time.

How to set presets on nelsonic clock radio nlc 618


To set this alarm first ensure that when you press the Mode button several times the FM/AM radio does not turn on . If the FM or AM radio does turn on or the lcd displays "AU" press the Power button that is next to the Mode button 1 time (pressing the Power button toggles you between 2 settings). You should now be able to press the Mode button at least 3 times without the FM/AM Radio turning on.

Next you press and hold the Alarm 1 or Alarm 2 button and (while continuing to hold down one of the Alarm buttons) press the Hour or Min buttons to set the time of whichever alarm button you are holding down.

When you have the alarm time set you can release the Alarm 1 or Alarm 2 button and press the same button (do not hold the button down this time) to cycle between the types of alarms you can use. You will see the blue circle indicator move between Buzz and Radio when pressing the buttons (Blue circle on left side is for Alarm 1 and blue circle on right side is for Alarm 2). There is a third option as well but I'm not sure what the alarms will do if you set them to it because the blue circle indicator disappears entirely after cycling to Buzz and then Radio.

Hope that helps!

How do i set my alarm and when do i know it is on or off....keeps coming on and i dont know how to shut off the alarm...thank you


This clock radio features a dual alarm system, with two separate alarms that can be operated independently. The alarms can be set to wake two people at different times, or to have a main alarm and a backup. One alarm features your choice of radio stations as an alarm wake sound, while the second features a buzzer wake sound. You can set the radio alarm, the buzzer alarm, or both alarms.
Setting Radio Alarm
1. Press the "Alarm Set" Button. The display will flash and the Radio Alarm Indicator will appear. If you do not begin setting the time within ten seconds of pressing the it, the display will stop flashing andd you will need to press the "alarm Set Button again. 2. While the display flashes, press the "Tuning/Set" Buttons to set the wake time. Hold a button for a few seconds to advance the time rapidly. Be sure to set the correct AM/PM time, as shown by the PM Indicator. 3. After setting the radio alarm time, you will need to select the station to wake up to. First, press the "AM/FM" Button to select a radio frequency. Next, select a station using the "Radio Preset Buttons". Rotate the Volume Thumbwheel to set a wake sound volume level. 4. After setting the radio alarm wake time and sound, you will need to select your 7-5-2 setting. The 7-5-2 setting lets you set the alarm for a full week, weekdays only, or the weekend. Before setting the alarm, be sure that the correct date is set. 5. After you have set the radio alarm wake time, wake sound, and 7-5-2 setting, press the "Alarm Set" Button twice so that the display shows the standard, non-flashing display.
Setting Buzzer Alarm
1. Press the "Alarm Set" Button twice. The display will flash and the Buzzer Alarm Indicator will appear. 2. While the display flashes, press the "Tuning/Set" Buttons to set the wake time, as described above. 3. After setting the buzzer wake time, use the "Date/7-5-2" Button to select the buzzer. 4. After you have set the buzzer wake time and 7-5-2 setting, press the "Alarm Set" Button once so that the display shows the standard, non- flashing display.
Activating the Alarms
1. To activate the radio alarm, press the "Radio Alarm" Button so that the Radio Alarm Indicator appears on the display. As long as this indicator appears, the alarm will sound at the set time and days. 2. To activate the buzzer alarm, press the "Buzzer Alarm" Button so that the Buzzer Alarm Indicator appears on the display. As long as this indicator appears, the alarm will sound at the set time and days. 3. When the alarm sounds, press the " Off/Reset" Button to turn off the alarm while still maintaining the programmed 7-5-2 alarm settings. To turn off an alarm and cancel its 7-5-2 settings, press its "Alarm Button" so that its Alarm Indicator no longer appears on the display. 4. To activate the snooze feature, press the "Snooze/Night-Light" Bar when the alarm sounds. The alarm will shut off for approximately nine minutes before sounding again. The feature can be repeated several times during the one-hour snooze cycle. 5. If it is not turned off, the alarm will sound for an hour before stopping. As long as an Alarm Indicator appears on the display, the alarm will sound at the set time, according to the 7-5-2 settings.

My alarm clock does not distinguish between AM and PM. it simply does not turn on the sign for either, so i cant tell if my alarms are set for am or pm...kind of important.


Sounds like a display problem where the indicator isn't working. This might be a bad connection or it could be the display itself or the driving electronics. In any case, it would probably cost you more than the clock radio's worth to have it repaired (assuming you find someone who'd take it for repair in the first place!).

Here's a "solution", though. Set your alarm for a time only a couple of minutes later than the current time and wait around. Depending on whether or not the alarm sounds, you'll know if it's set for AM or PM. At least you'll be able to keep using it until you decide to replace it.

I cant find the manual so I dont remember how to set the weekday alarm. Also can you show a picture of what the display should look like when the alarm is set? Or describe it? Thank you.


Press the Alarm button. The weekday alarm symbol will appear. Then press and hold the Alarm button for 2 seconds to enter the set mode (the hour will blink). Use the up/down buttons to choose the hour for the alarm (note the A.M./P.M. if in 12 hour mode). Press Alarm again and the minute will blink. Again use the up/down arrows to set the desired time. Press Alarm once more to exit the set mode.

To activate or deactivate the alarm, press the Alarm button until the weekday alarm icon appears. Then use the up/down arrows to activate or deactivate the alarm. When the alarm is set and active, the time will show. If the alarm has been deactivated, then dashes will appear instead of the time.

The single alarm is set and checked similarly.

I hope this helps.

(I suspect that the weekday alarm icon continues to display when the alarm is active.)
