How do i set the alarm on a t231


Setting The Alarm Time of T231
This Timex clock radio has dual alarms that can be set and used independently. The initial default alarm settings are 6:00 AM for Alarm 1 and 7:00 AM for Alarm 2. The procedure for
setting both alarms is the same.
NOTE: The alarm times can only be adjusted when the clock radio is in the OFF mode. If the radio is playing, press and hold the MODE/ALM RESET button until the display briefly shows
'OFF' and then reverts to the time.
1. Press and hold the ALM 1 button until the Alarm 1 time and the Alarm 1 Buzzer indicator begin flashing in the display, then release the button.
2. Press the HOUR / REV button to advance the display to the desired wake-up hour. Observe the PM indicator to confirm that you have set the wake-up hour correctly. If the PM indicator is
'On' the wake-up hour on the display is PM. If the PM indicator does not appear the wake-up hour on the display is AM.
3. Press the MIN / FF button to advance the display to the correct wake-up minute, and then release the button.
4. Press the ALM 1 button once more to confirm the wake-up time setting or after 10 seconds the display will stop flashing and the new wake-up time will be entered automatically. The
display will return to the correct time of day but the Buzzer indicator will remain 'on' in the display indicating that the Alarm 1 is now set to wake you to the buzzer.
5. To change the alarm mode from buzzer to radio, or to cancel the alarm, press the ALM 1 button again. Press the ALM 1 button once more to select the Radio alarm. Press the ALM 1 button once more to cancel the alarm function. The alarm indicators disappear and the display returns to the correct time.
6. Follow the same procedure to set the Alarm 2 wake-up time.

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.

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.

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.

Alarm keeps going off


Alarm will sound if the temperature of the freezer rises to unsafe levels. An indicator light will flash and continue to flash until the temperature reaches a safe level. The buzzer will also sound and will continue for 48 hours unless a safe condition exists.

Ozaki imini (cute)


This is easy, hold down "mode" until the alarm time flashes, then press "mode" again, it will cycle through a menu, there is an "on" option to turn on the ipod at a certain time, you select "on" then press mode again, it will cycle to the next menu, set the time you want the ipod to turn on, press menu again, then you can select the "ipod off" time, I keep that option off as I want the ipod to stay on until I turn it off. Now you have set the ipod to turn on at whatever time you want. Turn off that terrible buzzer alarm. The confusing thing is the imini has to different alarm modes, not one alarm mode with two alarm sound options like most everything else.

Turn the alarm off


Just push the button marked radio, sound or buzzer on the front right side of the face or panel - when you see radio, sound or buzzer light up on the screen alarm is on (to whichever you set it - radio sound or buzzer- if you push the button again it will go off. Took me a while to figure that one out too!

The Amber light is the Power 'On' indicator. The Red light is a Temperature Alarm indicator. THe Red light comes on if the freezer compartment rises above 20 degrees F (for example a freezer malfunction or someone left the door open). You also probably have a rocker switch (or two holes that are over a rocker switch) that is in between these two indicators. If you do, that's an audible (loud buzzer) alarm when the red light comes on. The rocker switch is a simple on-off switch to silence the alarm or turn it back on.
