GE 7-4853 clock radio "locked" or stuck when I plug it back in

I plugged my GE 7-4853 clock radio back in.  Now it is "locked" or stuck on 13:00 and any button combination I try has not worked.  Any recommendations?  Thanks.

    I am having the same problem with my GE alarm clock model 7-4853.

    We had a household power failure and when power was restored the clock had the error 13:HE displayed and will not reset. I have tried unplugging the unit, Pressing and holding down all the buttons and I replaced the backup 9 volt battery all to no avail.

    I just contacted customer service. I didn't have my receipt for this alarm clock, because it HAD been working fine. It's now stuck at 13:00, and it seems other people are having this problem. They told me at GE customer service that if it was purchased more than 1 year ago, they can't do anything about it because it's no longer being made and the parts are no longer available.
    So, I guess throw it away...I'd think GE would be a little more helpful in this area. Hopefully this won't happen to our home appliances. I won't buy from them again.

SOURCE: complicated GE clock radio/CD player

To set the time:
Hit the SET Wake/Time Button closest to the CD player until the clock face appears in the bottom left hand of the display.

Use the TRACK Rev Search Fwd Arrows to adjust the time.
Rev will decrease by minutes and Fwd will increase by minutes.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: FM/AM GE Digital clock radio model#7-4966 display bulb burned out

Geri, I recently had the same problem with my GE model 7-4966 clock radio. The radio manual states that there is a spare bulb included and stored on the underside of the battery compartment door on the bottom of the clock radio. To replace the bulb: 1. Twist the bulb bar handle on the underside of the radio to unlock and remove the holder. 2. Carefully pull the bulb out of the holder and replace with the spare bulb. 3. Place the holder back in place, twist the bar handle to the right to "lock" the bulb holder in position.
In case you can't find a spare bulb, the manual states "use only a GE259 or equivalent 6.3 volt, wedge base bulb. A clerk at Radio Shack told me she could get a replacement bulb.

My dewalt radio charges, but has no display and wont play anything at all


Try this if the display seems stuck on the same station: If you take off the front of the radio (don't forget 2 screws in back!) you will notice a set of black and red wires running from the 2 AA backup batteries to the digital display circuit board. The wires plug into the board with a little white plug. If you unplug this the display will fade to nothing. If you plug it back in it will display an unset digital clock format. This seems to reset the radio, after which it should work.

Emerson IC200BK smartset iPod radio - buttons seem to be stuck


You can try taking the battery out and let the microprocessor discharge it charge and unlatch the switch controls function. This should take about a hour to be safe. To do this take the plug about from the wall also. The battery may be bad and need replacing. You can test the battery by putting it back in after you test the radio and clock with the a/c plug only. After the radio and clock return to normal operation. Put the battery back in and see if it work properly and all the function work. If you are still having problems replace the battery. If this does not fix the problem, you will have to call Emerson customer support at this telephone number 1-800-898-9020. Give them the model number of you clock radio and tell them the problem you are having with the failure of the front panel buttons. They will be able to tell you if there is a fix or if you have to send it in for repair. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

My GE Clock Radio, Model No. C-403D


Probably a few years too late to be any good, but maybe someone else will have the same question. Your GE clock radio is from around 1964, a classic mid-century design with an "All-American-Five" tube radio set. There should be a round knob sticking out of the back panel, right behind the clock. Just twist it to set the time, pull and twist to set the alarm, IIRC. If the knob is missing, you can remove the back panel (unplug from the wall first! The back panel has a safety plug that disconnects the cord,) and you can easily see and twist the stub of the knob. You can download the schematics from the Radio Museum (http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/general_el_c403dc_403.html) but you have to be a member.

Where can i get circuit diagram of GE 7-4809


I doubt you'll be able to find a service manual for this. I would take it (if it means a lot to you) to a good repair center. They should be able to troubleshoot the problem even without a schematic.
