Re: 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.

Re: snooze alarm

According to the manual, you have to "hold the nap button" until the nap indicator turns off. This seems to work "sometimes". The only certain fix I have found is to unplug, remove the batteries and so reset everything.

I am using my mother's Elgin 3400E travel alarm

On my Elgin alarm clock, you just push the nap button and it will add 15 minute increments for a nap. I haven't figured out how to turn it off if I change my mind or wake up earlier than I set it.

This is the most stupid clock radio ever.

Turning off the Nap = just hold nap for like 3-5 seconds
Turning off the alarm = Hit cancel and then the mode flashes for 3 seconds.. touch mode and then you'll see there is 'no mode' selected showing the alarm is now off. Hit mode to turn it back for the next normal alarm scheduled time.

Manual RCA RP3710A

For the snooze, hold down the snooze button (should display the length of time for snoozing) and hit the time/tune buttons up or down to increase or decrease the snooze time.

For the nap time, press nap and the nap indicator should start blinking. Again, hit the time/tune buttons up or down to increase or decrease the name time in 10 minute increments up to 2 hours.

Turning off "NAP" feature

You have to "double-click" the "NAP" button. And on the second "click," hold it down until the "NAP" light goes off.
That worked for me three times in a row, at least.

JUST HOLD THE NAP BUTTON UNTIL IT NO LONGER IS BLINKING NAP, dont return it, its very good at waking you up in the morning, and is basically a good alarm clock, it just has a different way of turning nap 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.
