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!

Put the battery on a 2 amp charge for 8 hrs.After its charged check the batteries voltage it should be 12-12.5 volts if it does it replace battery.

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.

Live in Saskatchewan, car froze. Tried boosting it, tried plugging it in overnight, put gas in it. Could be the fule pump, (fuel lines) but i dont know where these things are located on a 04 Pontiac Granm...


Get some gasline de-icer and put into the gas tank and leave it sit for awhile. Will the engine turn over? Put a trickle charge on the battery and make sure it is at full charge. If the battery is low it may be frozen. Take it inside . thaw it out then charge it on slow charge.

My 2003 sunfire wont start. Tried charging the battery, still wont start. (It's really cold outside) It does have command start (could that be the problem?)


If it is turning over but not starting, I would put it in a warm garage and let it thaw out for awhile or out gasline antifreeze in the gas tank and let sit for couple of hours turning the key on periodically to pump gas into libes with the deicer because it sounds like a frozen gas line. Let me know if we need to go further

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo was not firing but now after replacing PCM and crankshaft and cam sensors and checked all fuses and relays it is getting correct amount voltage and will crank but while...


Chk the battery ground cable, Remove and clean. Then chk your charging system at the battery. Should charge between 13.6 and 14.2v If it is charging above 14.2 your alt is barely charging, The further below 13.6 the more amps the alt is putting out. Make sure you battery has adequate water in it. A battery will rejuvinate itself after it has gone dead after sitting awhile,but only enough to last a few minutes. Turning on you headlights would kill it right then.

Car lights, dash lights, tac, radio and clock all go out but


Look for missing or loose grounds. LOAD test the battery, holding a charge and ability to perform are two different things.

My Creative Zen won't turn on or so sizes of charging.


On the bottom is a very small hole. Put a pin in and push, it will start your creative up again.
