    Radio works fine - display is completely unreadable. Out of warranty 2 years ago. I tried the 30 minute reboot solution offered. Did not work.

    Any ideas?

    same here if I unplug for 30 min (I even kept it unplugged for days) the display will seem ok for a little while but then it goes right back to all messed up

    Same problem, hit the alarm reset button and the unit went blank. Left unplugged and battery removed for a couple of days ans still blank. Second problem with this unit in 2 years. First was after 13 months clock started running 10 minutes fast/hour. Can't seem to locate any type of tech support for Cambridge or Creative. Any idea on how to get tech support or repair service.

I just had the same problem and called tech support (800) FOR HIFI at Cambridge Soundworks for help. All you have to do is unplug the radio for 30 minutes and then reconnect - kind of like rebooting a computer.

    had same problem several yrs ago - went totally dark - there is a light sensor on front that dims it is light dims so it is not full bright ina bedroom at night - but ours is in kitchen so who needs it! anyway, it was $125 plus shipping while they were still doing repairs - in hind sight doubtful it was money well spent since it's not that hard to tune to stations by sound and then preset them.

Avaya 8434DX Display won't show date and time as normal display

You should be able to hit the Menu button, then the arrow directly below the TmDay display and then hit exit once the date and time are displayed. The date should disappear but the time should stay.
