Question about Aiwa FR-A530 Clock Radio

Slowdown more than an hour

I have brought one of this clock to China and plug it on a 110V outlet since the clock is compatible with 110V. But weird thing happens, it slow down almost one hour during eight hours usage. I DO set up the time right. And I've tried two or three 110V outlets already, still slow down.

Re: Slowdown more than an hour

Maybe the clock is trying to set itself back to its home time;)

Depending on which parts of china you're in, there may be radio wavelengths that is interfering with clock you have, therefore, slowing down the transmitter. of the time.

My Bose radio will not turn on. I plug it in and the radio lights up and then it goes dead this all happens in about 60 seconds...any suggestions ? I am in Xian China the radio worked fine prior to coming...

If that unit came from the states, the power would be 110V and in China tjhe voltage they use is 220V.
That means, you have to check the fuse in the radio, replace if it is already open.If the fuse is still okay, the power circuit has a burned parts.
My advise is to send it to a electronic tech or the nearby service center.
Hope that helps!

We have bose 9 speaker system from usa 110v it was my fathers we have brought it back to spain which is 240v can you help ie transformers

Probably every electrical supply store in Europe sells tranformers for American (110V) gear.

Google "240 - 100 transformer Europe"

What's a Bose 9? You mean 901? Before you try to use it get the manual from and wrap your head around it's requirement for exclusive use of any amplifier.

Moved back to South Africa from Los Angeles. Brought my Bose wave with me. 110V in the U.S., 220V in South Africa. Any advice how to make it work here. Don't want to damage it in any way. Please...

You need to get a stepdown autotransformer that takes the 220~240vac input and step it down to 120vac (BOSE can handle 50 or 60Hz line frequency), the problem will be getting one with the NEMA5-15R US style outlet so you can plug your BOSE into this step down autotransformer.

Hope this help.

Over-voltage connection - 220v - instead of 110v

That thing is fried.If you can do your own electronic repair,there are a few components where the plug comes in that would be cheap to replace.Without a solder gun and voltage meter though I would replace.

Emerson Smartset Clock Radio setting for everyday alarm

You will need to reset the Clock/Radio's microprocessor. To do this you must unplug the Clock/Radio and remove the internal battery (CR2430). Let the Clock/Radio set without any power source for at least 2 hours. Then put the internal battery back in the Clock/Radio and plug it in to the a/c outlet. Test to see if the Clock/Radio functions have returned to normal. If the function have not returned to normal, you will need to replace the internal battery. Then let the Clock/Radio again set with out power for a period of at least 2 hours. after a 2 hour period, put the new battery in the Clock/Radio and Plug it into the a/c outlet. Test the functions to see if the microprocessor has reset to normal operation. If you are still having a problem with the Clock/Radio's operations , you will have to give the Emerson customer support a call. The Telephone number for the Customer support is 1-800-898-9020. You can call them between the hours of 7am-5pm CT. Give them the make and model number of your Clock/Radio and ask them for assistance with your problem. I hope this information helps you fix the problem with the alarm in the Clock/Radio.

Doesn't work

Sorry it took so long to help you. You should have returned the Clock/Radio to the place of purchase for exchange. The Clock/Radio has had problem with component failure. This is probably happen during its shipping from china to the USA. This does happen unfortunately. Shipping can be the cause of many problem with electronic equipment. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day.

Emerson Radio CKD9906

I hope this will help you, I just found the Users Manual to this Model online myself, as I needed info on setting the Alarm.

I am also going to upload the full Manual, just incase anyone else needs it.


Setting The Time Of Day

• Connect the power cord to your AC outlet. Make sure to use an outlet that is
always ‘live’. Do not use an outlet that is controlled by a wall switch.

• When the unit is plugged in for the first time the
display will show flashing “12:00” (AM).

1.) While the display is flashing, press the HR. button to set the hour. Be sure
to observe the PM indicator to set the hour correctly. If the PM indicator is ‘On’
the hour displayed is PM.

2.) Press MIN. button to set the minute correctly.

3.) Press the TIME button once. The time is set.
The display remains ‘On’.

Note: You may proceed to re-set the time again by pressing the TIME button
once during Power-off or CD, FM, AM, Buzzer modes.

Important Notes !!
If you press and hold the TIME button any time, the clock will change to
European 24-Hour format, and 12-Hour USA format.
