Setting the TIME

The timer function I can change (i'm not sure what it's for, but i'm pretty sure it's an alarm.. i think).

But, as for time, I cannot change it. I'm not sure how to. I've done everything, and I just received it as is from a friend without instructions.

Thank you if you can help me.

Re: Setting the TIME

To set the clock you press and hold the MEM/CLKADJ until it blinks the 12Hr and then press the MEM/CLKADJ again, then it should get allow you to set the clock, use the arrows to change the time.

Re: Setting the TIME

Maybe try playing around with the settings until you figure out how to control it.

Cd player only shows

You will need to check the swith that change from Tape to CD to other functions. If the switch is good. Then the next thing is to check for tape function. Can you try to fast forward, reverse. If these functions are working properly then the pinch roller ( the little wheel that is pulling the tape need to be replaced). If nothing moves then you need to replace the belt and the wheel and possible the motor at the same time

When's the last time you cleaned the heads AND capstan? (Google it) Look at the edges of your tapes. Any irregularities will show up as warble or dropouts on the left channel.

One way to make sure it's set correctly is to temporarily change it to 24 hour format.
Press and hold ADJ until the display says 24 H Setup your alarms When finished Press and hold ADJ to switch back to 12 H format.

The most common problem with these is slipping belts. While a relatively simple repair for an experienced shop, these are a little tricky to repair for the first time. The belts shouldn't cost more than $6 total (I think there are 3 in this unit).

Hey there,

Not sure how much you are familiar with replacing boards or transformers but, if you have never done this before - i would suggest not to. Walmart sells the Durabrand's and yours is currently going for about $20. The thermal fuse itself will probably be around $2-$5 and the transformer probably around if you find it at an electrical store or if you order it online then pay S&H along with the installation time, you pretty much will come out even (unless of course you are an electrician or have some sort of tech background). Also the surge may have also created other issues along with the transformer and you may have to spend additional money. Lightning hit our house and blewout a transistor on my TV board - i knew I could replace it, but instead went out and bought a new one thinking I may have additional issues. I bought the new one and being spiteful decided to fix my TV - I was right I would have ended up paying almost $400, so I tossed it. If you are "hell bent" on fixing your radio I would suggest checking out this FAQ before you do anything - I have found it useful before and saved some change at the same:

Good Luck and Happy Holidays..

GPX HM1836 Boombox CD Tray spins all the time and doesn't stop

Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with your model, but the way it is supposed to work, is when you load a CD, you will see the laser lense move up and down a few times as the laser attempts to focus on the disk, and as well you will see the spin motor spin a few times. If the spin motor is going all the time, and the driver chip has been changed, then there is either a circuit problem giving the "on" pin of the driver ic a signal to spin at all times, or the microprocessor that runs the Cd has failed and is sending signal to spin constantly. Unless this is a hugely expensive blaster, I would replace it given the type of problem you are having.

Good Luck!

Don't know how to set the time/clock.

Setting the Clock
Before operating the unit any further, first set the clock built
in this unit.
• When the unit is turned on with CD or tuner selected, press
DISPLAY first to show the clock indication.
1 Press and hold PROGRAM/SET
for more than 2 seconds.
The hour digits start flashing on the
2 Press 4 or ¢ to adjust
the hour, then press
The minute digits start flashing on the
3 Press 4 or ¢ to adjust
the minute, then press

If there is a power failure
The clock loses the setting and is reset to “AM 12:00.” You need to
set the clock again. If the batteries are inserted in the unit, this has
no effect on the memory.
To show the clock when CD or tuner is selected
• Each time you press the button, the display changes the clock
indication and the normal indication alternately. (Operating the
unit while clock indication is displayed change the display to the
normal indication.)

How do I set the clock and preset stations.

I also had some problems to figure out how to set the time, but here is the sollution i came up with:


1. Press "Clock/Timer" until a clock and "on" starts to flash in the display.

2. Turn the "volume/caleido jog" to choose which function you want to set (alarm on/alarm off/time).

3. Press "clock/timer" again.

4. Change time with the volume wheel.

5. Press "clock/timer" when you are finished.
