Signal error on Tivoli DAB clock radio


When I play the radio I can't get any information on the LCD other than 'Signal error 12' (other numbers appear too). When this type of thing happened in the past all I had to do was to turn the unit off and on but this doesn't seem to help any more.

Any ideas?

Clock light is dim or out?

Sounds like you need a new clock. Parts and repairs cost more than new products.

Can not change time zone on sharper image model lm521 projection clock

I got to liking the Sharper Image LM521 Digital Clock so much that I finally took the time to figure out how to manually set it-it was that or toss it! The instructions are as follows:
AFTER installing fresh batteries, or removing and reinstalling the batteries:
Successively pressing the "SET" button results in steps 1.) to 11.) below, each of which describes the particular/specific LM521 clock function you you can manually set.
HOWEVER, pressing the "SET" button after the clock had been previous set and running, will start the manual clock settings from step "2.)," "SET Offset Hours..." To start from step 1.), remove and reinstall the batteries.

Sharper Image LM521 Digital Clock

After inserting the batteries:
The whole LCD screen lights up showing the different settings, etc.
After several seconds, the LCD screen clears and displays:
A flashing antenna
Upper left hand side of the LCD display. USA Time Zone Map
Middle right side of the LCD display (if necessary, to see, remove and reinsert batteries).
A flashing antenna
> This indicates the clock is trying to auto set the time according to the WWVB radio/satellite time signal. Set on windowsill for best chance of success.
If it can't detect the signal, mannual setting is required, starting with the time zone.
> Manually set time ONLY if you are absolutely certain the WWVB signal cannot be found. Otherwise any manual time setting will be auto set to the WWVB time when its signal is detected, which may be many hours later.

SET USA Time Zone
1.) Press "SET" -- US time zone
> press "MODE" repeatedly until the desired time zone is reached.
5 = Eastern standard time (default setting)
6 = Central standard time
7 = Mountain standard time
8 = Pacific standard time
9 = Alaskan standard time

SET Offset Hours to Compensate for Satellite Signal
2.) After step 1.) above, press "SET"
A flashing "-7h" (minus 7 hours, default) and flashing USA Time Zone map appear.
This default setting worked just fine in New Mexico, MST, and may also work for your time zone as well.
> Press "MODE" to set from "-0" to "-12h" (minus 0 to 12 hours).
> Set to "-0h" if the satellite time signal set your clock to the correct time for the US time zone you live in.
> Set from "-1h" to "-12" to offset the time set by the satellite signal in case it does not match the time in your time zone. (E.g., 3pm -1h = 2pm.)
> NOTE: The default setting is -7h. If the satellite signal resets the time, say to 9pm, the time displayed will be 2pm (9pm-7h)--but if it should display 5pm instead to match your time zone, then set offset to -4h. Hence, the need to correctly set the offset hours if the -7h default value does not work for you.

SET Daylight Savings Time (DST)
3.) Press "SET" -- DST (Daylight Savings Time)
> Press "MODE" to set ON/OFF

SET Time
4.) Press "SET" (5no = seconds)
"5no" displays, plus flashing bars for seconds (not minutes as it falsely seems).
> Press "MODE" to set from 0 to 60 seconds
5.) Press "SET" (set hours)
> hour bars flash > press "MODE" to set hours
6.) Press "SET" (set minutes)
> minute bars flash > press "MODE" to set minutes

SET Date
7.) Press "SET"
> press "MODE" set year
8.) Press "SET"
> press "MODE" set month
9.) Press "SET"
> press "MODE" set day
SET Week Day
10.) Press "SET"
> press "MODE" set week day, Mom through Sun (Mo is default)

SET Standard (12) / Military (24) Time
11.) Press "SET"
> Press "MODE" set 12/24


SET/ROTATE Ceiling Projected Time/Temp Position
12.) Repeatedly press button with four tiny arrows pointing opposite each other (rightside of "DSPL" button) until the Time/Temperature display on the ceiling is oriented how you want it.

SET Ceiling Projection Brightness, or turn off
13.) Pressing button with sun symbol (leftside of "DSPL" button) cycles ceiling display from off, to brightness levels 1, 2, and 3.

SELECT between Ceiling Projected Time, Temp or Both
14.) Pressing "DISPL" repeatedly cycles between M0 (time), M1 (temperature), M2 (time & temperature auto switch every second or so).

My black Tivoli Songbook case has become completely sticky. I have only ever used a bit of water and a cotton cloth, what can I do or clean it with? thanks Jodi

Hi Jodi:
Same with both of mine. I used solution of vinegar and water, about 50/50. It seems the "rubbery" texture is now gone, but the terrible sticky is gone also. The solution did not remove any of the lettering or numbers.
