Did you use your remote a lot?
Do some buttons work sometimes if you press them really hard?

If it's a double yes and you've already cleaned the remote (the rubber pad with buttons and the circuit board with contact tabs), then the buttons are most probably worn out, which means they no longer make a good contact on the circuit board tabs.

There's a repair liquid kit for remotes, i'm not sure what the brand name is or where to get it, in europe, conrad electronic was selling it some time ago, however, i make my own from benzene, rubber glue and grapphite powder.

The other solution is either to find a new rubber button pad or to get a brand new remote...

How to set your clock radio

Press and hold down the "clock" button. You should see your time start flashing. Normally you set the time with the volume or channel control, or both, Volume for "Hour" and channel control for "Minutes". Check which control lets the selector jump from "hour" to "minute and set the minutes. To exit settings menu, depress "clock" button again

How do I turn the Closed Captioning on?

Try and hold both volume up channel up at the same time for at least 5 seconds and hope that the menu will come up. Use the channel arrows to select your choices. If that doesn't work, try channel down volume down as your combo.

How do you change the channel on this model?

Hi Eric,

Does the unit have knobs on the top of the unit, or just buttons in the front panel beneath the screen?

If the former is the case, one of them will have numbers on it, this is the channel selector.

If the latter is the case, then you should see two buttons with up and down arrows on them, one is Volume, the other is Channel selector.

I hope this is useful to you.

Repeats selection and won't chage seletion. superstar 3600

Obviously your channel display must be working. I would assume the radio has sustain some harsh trauma to the channel selector itself possibly a drop.
Remove the speaker side cover looking down on the channel selector and its pcb board check connection and between the mechanical switch and pcb.
This may be as simple as a cold solder joint the problem is finding it. the schematic is for the 3900 which i believe are similar units.

I just hooked up cable and dont have a remote for my older tv how do I get to ch 3??

Good day,
Look on the back of the tv to see if you have a channel 3 4 selector.
If so, set it to 3.
If your tv has basic controls on the front, such as on/off, volume and channel select, remove your cable hookup to the tv, turn on the set, and using the channel controls set it to channel 3.
