Maybe you have defective crack board! or lost contact at the board! or clean all tact switches.

I can't get the alarm and zz function off. I tried pushing adjust, but nothing happens. I do not need the alarm function on this clock ever.

Sans any model number... manufacturer

I can only surmise

You have yet to move the primary "MODE CONTROL" switch into the "TIME SET" or the "ALARM SET"...

Look closely... there is probably some clever little slide that
is presently setting comfortably at "RUN" or "LOCK"...

Go on ... give it a try.

Just leave the "SLEEP" button alone
(otherwise you will have to take a mandatory nap)...!!


add the make & model and I'll give it a sincere attempt.

How do I set the alarm so it will activate on weekdays. It only works for Saturday and Sunday. Thanks


Sure Alarm battery Back-Up System

This SmartSet® Clock Radio includes a Sure Alarm battery back-up circuit that can

wake you up even if the power is 'Off'at the selected wake up time. If your power

is 'Off'at the selected wake up time the clock display will be off and the radio will

not operate, but a separate mini-buzzer will turn 'On'automatically to wake you up,

even if you had selected the "Wake to Radio"option.

The Sure Alarm will sound for 30 seconds and then shut off automatically.

To stop the Sure Alarm buzzer immediately, press the RADIO ON/OFF button.

Pressing the SNOOZE button has no effect during Sure Alarm operation.

Note: In order to maximize the life of the built in lithium battery, please be sure

to set the ALARM 1 and ALARM 2 switches to the "OFF"position if the radio

will be disconnected from the AC outlet for more than a few hours. This will
prevent the Sure Alarm from turning 'On'unnecessarily.

1.) Depress and hold either the ALARM 1 or ALARM 2 setting button.

The display will change from the correct time
to the Alarm 1 or Alarm 2 wake up time.

2.) While holding the ALARM 1 or ALARM 2 setting button, depress either the

SET + or - button to move the display ahead or back to your desired wake up

3.) When the desired wake up time appears on the display, release the SET + or

- buttons.

Note: Be sure that you have set the wake up time correctly by observing

the AM indicator. If the AM indicator is 'On'the wake up time is "AM". If the
AM indicator is 'Off', the wake up time is "PM".

4.) When the desired wake up time (AM or PM) appears on the display, release
the ALARM 1 or ALARM 2 setting buttons

What is the function of the sleep button on the TruTech TCR1276 Clock Radio. The alarm clock already has a snooze button.

The sleep button sets the radio to play for a set length of time and then turn off. Thus you can fall asleep with the radio on and not have to remember to turn it off. It works when the clock's Auto/On/Off switch is set to Auto or Off. The default is 59 minutes before it turns off. You can adjust the time until it turns off by holding the sleep button and the hour (lengthen the sleep time) or minute (shorten the time until it goes to sleep) button. The longest duration is 1 hour and 59 minutes until shut off.

I hope this helps. You can find the manual for the clock radio at: . Search for the TCR1276.

Alarm doesn't work

I finally figured it out. I was setting the alarm for p.m., which isn't labeled such, instead of a.m., which is labeled. For example, the alarm might read "8:00", but that actually means 8:00 p.m.

Snooze alarm

Like everyone else here I have accidentally hit the NAP button and couldn't turn it off. This morning at 2am I accidentally hit it with my husband in bed. I decided one and for all to guide this out. By flashlight and my cell phone i Googled a solution. I came across many, none of which worked. I resorted to trying methods that were posted for other models of this brand of clocks. The solution that I found that worked was to hold down the back part of the NAP button until the seat the time displayed and the nap light off. By back part of the button I mean hold down the tiny section closest to the rear of the clock. I got this solution from instructions for model RP3721A clock. It took me 17 minutes.That's just 3 minutes before the alarm would have gone off.

How do you set the wake up? So the radio turns on automatically? each morning

I did not find my manual, but this worked for me. Set the clock to be a 24 hour clock by pressing and holding the Memory/Clock Adj button. The display will show 24h or 12h. Use the fast forward button to change from 12h to 24h. Press the Memory/Clock Adj button again and use the fast or reverse forward buttons to change the time to read, for example, 13:00 instead of 1:00 if the time is 1pm. Press the Memory/Clock Adj button again to set the minutes.When you are done setting the time, press and hold the Timer/Sleep button. Either a time or "0:00" will appear in the display with the word "TIMER" flashing above it. Quickly press and hold the Memory/Clock Adj button until the first digit in the time starts flashing. Set the hour that you wish the alarm to sound using the fast or reverse forward buttons, just like you do for setting the time. Press the Memory/Clock Adj button again to set the minutes, and one more time to finish. The word "TIMER" will stop flashing and go solid, and the display will return to the time of day. When the alarm sounds, you can hit Snooze which will give you 5 more minutes, or you can turn the Clock Radio off. Pressing the Timer/Sleep button again will turn off the timer (alarm) and pressing and holding it again after that will turn it back on.
