Question about RCA RP3710 Clock Radio

1 Answer

Backup battery not working

I know that the battery is charged. Shouldn't the clock turn on when I put the battery in? Does it need to sit in the clock for awhile before it works? I am concerned because I need it for bad weather. Please help!

Check to make sure the battery connections are clean - free of rust/corrosion/gunk...and that the battery firmly "snaps" into it's connector/holder. BTW, if you have a user manual for the clock, I have the same model but lost my manual and can't figure out how to set the time... you can email my with instructions at donebythefish@gmail.com - I'd appreciate it!

I stored my insignia picture frame in a drawer for a long time. When I brought it out to use it, it would not turn on or connect to my computer with the usb.


When the battery and the backup battery are gone, the picture frame may take 15 minutes to even show sign of life. If after more than 20 minutes without life, then you will probably have to change the backup bettery - probably a 3 volt-button bettery.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Plug the battery backup into a working electrical outlet. If the battery backup turns on when the power button is pressed, then the problem may be that the previous electrical outlet is faulty. Proceed to step three. If the battery backup doesn't turn on, proceed to step two.
  • 2 Reset the circuit breaker on the battery backup. APC battery backups have a labeled circuit breaker button located on the unit near the phone line, fax line, USB, network and coaxial cable inputs. Press the button to reset the circuit breaker. Power on the battery backup by pressing the power button. If the battery backup powers on, proceed to step three. If the battery backup doesn't turn on, proceed to step six.

  • 3 Determine if the battery backup is charged and providing battery power. With the battery backup on and plugged into a working electrical outlet, plug a computer monitor into one of the battery backup outlets labeled "battery backup plus surge protection" on the battery backup. (APC power supplies have some outlets that provide only surge protection while the other outlets provide surge protection plus battery backup.) Turn the monitor on. Unplug the battery backup power cord from the wall outlet. If the monitor remains on, the battery is holding a charge, supplying electrical power and the battery backup is working properly. If the monitor goes off, proceed to step four.
  • 4 Charge the battery. Plug the battery backup into an electrical outlet and allow the battery to charge for 16 hours. This will fully charge the battery.
  • 5 Test battery charge. Once the battery is fully charged, repeat step three. If the monitor stays on when power is interrupted to the battery backup, the issue is solved and the problem resulted from an incompletely charged battery. If the monitor turns off when power is interrupted, the battery within the battery backup is faulty and needs to be replaced.
  • 6 Replace the battery backup unit. The unit itself is faulty. If the battery backup is under warranty, contact APC to request a replacement.

    2010 Elantra Touring - car won't start - doesn't turn over (battery is fully charged), clock/radio & A/C units don't work, and EPS doesn't work. Dealership cannot figure it out.


    sounds like a fuse. check them and get back to me. If the shop you took it too cannot figure it out they probably should not be a shop. i hope they didnt get you for a diag fee. Im going to locate a wire diagram to help you figure this out.....Also you said you put a new battery in the car, check that the battery terminals are clean and tight.

    When you hit the starter it will click then start and the clock will reset to 12:00 2003 grand am


    The clock resets because the car battery voltage/current is so low that when the starter motor is turned the + 12 drops to less than 8 volts and so the CLOCK resets.
    Please have the battery checked, check the starter motor , battery terminals must be tight.

    Insignia clock radio goes to 12:00 after turning off power


    I found this solution by reading some reviews. A reviewer said it was caused by a weak backup battery that powers the display. He said to change the lithium backup battery of the main unit with the backup battery in the remote. I tried it and now it works. I can turn the unit on and off and it doesn't reset my memory. But this hasn't solved my problem with setting the alarm.

    Default settings on startup


    The Clock Battery When the main battery is installed or an AC adapter is connected, the clock battery will charge in about 10 hours. When fully charged, the clock battery can provide several days of backup power. The language-selection dialog will automatically be displayed when the clock battery is exhausted. This is from the manual- but they do not say it is replaceable.
