THE ALARM BEEP IS SET TO ONE VOLUME MODE ONLY THE RADIO VOLUME IS THE ONLY ONE YOU CAN CONTROL UNLESS YOU HAVE A HIGH AND LOW SWITCH THEN JUST SWITCH TO LOW.

How do I change radio volume on the alarm?


This clock is supposed to have an automatically "increasing" volume feature (starts off low, gets louder over a minute or so).

If not sufficient, look on the top right side of the clock, there should be an up/down volume control. It is a black oval-shaped button with a picture of a sound speaker in the middle. Push it upward to increase volume and downward to decrease volume. Unfortunately, you have to have a flashlight or light on to see it because none of the controls are illuminated.

I recently purchased a Canon PIXMA MX410 printer and was wondering if there was a way to turn the volume down when faxing? It is so loud. Thankyou.


Machine Settings

This section describes the items you can set or change in the Fax settings or Device settings menu available by pressing the Menu button.

For details on setting or changing, refer to the on-screen manual: Advanced Guide.


Sound control


Adjusts the volume of the audible tones, such as the keypad tone generated when pressing the buttons on the Operation Panel, the alarm emitted when there is an error, the offhook alarm that sounds when the handset is off hook, and the line monitor.


  • Sound control

    Selects the volume.

    • Keypad volume

      Selects the beep volume when pressing the buttons on the Operation Panel.

    • Alarm volume

      Selects the alarm volume.

    • Line monitor volume

      Selects the line monitor volume.

    • Offhook alarm

      Selects the alarm volume when the phone receiver is not put on the hook properly.

    How do I adjust the volume on the alarm feature of the LG Quantum phone


    The alarm plays at the same volume the ringer is set at, put it on loud before bed if it doesn't wake you up. Weirdly you can even set the phone to silent after making it loud, that way wont wake you if you get a text/email during the night.

    How do i adjust the tone and volume of the board. its a Super L II Plus. Somehow I turned it off with the picture at the top. After turning it back on the only tone I can get is a sharp loud tone. I...


    If this is really a SL II Plus there is no adjustment to volume.

    The picture on the menu isn't a volume control. It turns on/off the alarm (beep).

    The tones are sent by the controller at one volume, different tones indicate what the operator is doing at the tome.

    Turning on digitizer = 4 beep tones
    Selecting ponts = 1 beep tone

    Wake up with the radio is always set to level 19... I would like to set my radio alarm with a lower volume... my centrios is a Speed to Sound CENTRIOS IPOD/IPHONE CLOCK RADIO I will return this


    We also have this problem. Found this info in the product's Q&A on the website: http://answers.thesource.ca/answers/9026/product/1218694/centrios-centrios-ipod-iphone-clock-radio-white-questions-answers/questions.htm

    "Ok. there is a way that you can LOWER the wakeup radio volume. turn on the radio (forget about the alarm right now) and go to the station that you want. when you get to the station, you should be able to press the 'skip/fast forward' button on the remote. when you do this, number 5 should show up beside the station #. When you do this, it lowers the overall volume of every volume level, so now level 19 is equal to volume level 9/10, which for me is loud enough to wake me, but not give me a heart attack! so, now when the alarm goes of, the volume is a lot lower. BUT if you want to wake up to your ipod, this method will NOT work, it will still be up at level 19. so when you turn on your ipod, it will be really LOUD. again, this only works with the radio."

    Also if you are waking to ipod and not radio this was in the reviews:
    "Fooled with it for a bit and discovered that you have to turn down the volume of the iPod first before putting it on the dock. We've tried it a few times just to make sure and it worked every time!!"

    Still not a perfect solution, but a great improvement. Hope this helps someone.

    My Sakar Darth Vader helmet clock radio did not come with instructions. How do you get it to talk and not just play the radio?


    When you set the alarm, turn the volume button on the front counter-clockwise (volume down) until it clicks. Darth will then wake you with one of three extremely LOUD, over-modulated soundbites or the electronic "beep-beep-beep" alarm . You can select the different soundbites/alarm with the "SELE-AL" button on the back. The only problem is, you can't tell which one you've selected until the alarm goes off. Cheap design.

    LOUD SOUND WHEN SENDING FAX


    There are 4 volume controls to access them press MENU.

    You should see “MACHINE SETTING?” if not use the SET arrows to scroll through the different menus, stop when you see “MACHINE SETTING?” Now press the SET button.

    Now use the up & down arrows to get to
    Buzzer Volume = that the machine beeps
    SET
    Key volume = the tone that sounds when you press keys on the control pad
    SET
    Alarm volume = the alarm if something happens.
    SET
    Line volume = sets the level you hear at the fax is actively transferring a fax.

    If you want to change any of the settings, press the up or down arrows to the level you like best and press SET if you don’t what to change that item just press SET. When you have adjusted all levels the way you want them press STOP and the levels will be remembered.

    The most annoying sound to most people in the Line Volume. I have known people that like it as quiet as posable in thier work, but the problem is if you turn down the ALARM you won’t know when there is a problem. Many people like a little line volume so that they hear when they dial into a busy phone line, or if someone picks up the shared voice line.

    How to set alarm and ring with radio?


    Hi gidgid.
    This is direct from manual mailed to me from Oregon Scientific re my own contrast problem.
    1. Press [ALARM] to switch to display the alarm setting.
    2. Select ALARM 1 or ALARM 2 using [ALARM].
    3. Press and hold [ALARM] for two seconds.
    4. Use VOLUME [ + ] / [ - ] to enter the hours.
    5. Press [ALARM].
    6. Use VOLUME [ + ] / [ - ] to enter the minutes.
    7. Press [ALARM].
    8. Use VOLUME [ + ] / [ - ] to select ALARM or RADIO. If
    ALARM is selected, a two-minute crescendo alarm will be
    emitted at the set time when the alarm is active. If RADIO is
    chosen, the radio will be turned on for two hours at the set time
    instead.
    9. If RADIO is chosen, use [STATION] to choose the radio
    station and press [AM / FM] to select AM or FM.
    10. Press [ALARM].
    11.Use VOLUME [ + ] / [ - ] to set the volume of the wake up radio.
    12. Press [ALARM] to exit.
    Note: If there is no battery for the radio, there is no operation for
    step 9 ~ 11.
