Re: midnight alarm feature never seen before

I am having the same problem. IT's so weird because I had owned the radio for many years before this ever happened for the first time? I unplugged it and this solved the problem for several months and again all of a sudden I am woken up every morning at 1 am. Any long term solutions?

How do you operate the alarm?

Start by adjusting the volume down to an acceptable level.

The mere fact that midnight is the HOUR of YOUR SCHEDULED assault... means you have SET the TIME but have never set the ALARM clock... and are using it mainly as a clock only... Yes?

Not as a radio... (I don't know your model... but most radio alarms are at your regular listening volume... (my sheltered opinion)).

(trying to be Sherlock here).

So you probably have your
ON - Off - Radio - Alarm selector switch set to RADIO... Yes?

I'm guessing... That is the problem.

When you want to listen... use the sleep or on buttons... or the "ON"

If I am off the mark... "comment" back to me with the MODEL & MAKE... and I'll give it a better going over.

Peaceful sleep is nice.

I bought a bush dab radio ne-3125, was advertised as a clock/radio,is this right or is it just a radio ?

I had the same problem - alarm going off at midnight. Hold down the Menu and Select buttons at the same time to reset the radio. This removes the alarm. It will rescan and find all digital stations again but you will lose any presets.

The buzzer goes off at 12 midnight every night

You probably have an alarm feature on the radio.
The common default time for timepieces is 12:00.
Find the alarm setting and set the alarm off.
If you cannot turn it off set it for 11 am.

How to switch auto alarm on and off just how to set alarm and disable and enable product is a sainsburys red dab clock radio not the one with docking station

Dont know how to set the time for the alarm, but to switch it off press and hold the menu button until it asks if you want to reset the radio and then follow the instructions. It means you have to reset radio every time but at least it stops pesky alarm going off...

Cannot turn off the alarm on my RCA clock radio rp5430

Look at the display. Look for a number 1 or a number 2 to determine which alarm is on. If you see a number 1, push the 1 button on the top right side of the alarm clock until the number light goes off (1 or 2 times, depending on whether it is set to beep or radio alarm). When the number is not lit up, the alarm is off.
