Cannot turn off the Timer

Had never used the timer function. Grand daughter somehow enabled it. I downloaded the manaul and found out how to set/change it. I changed it from 12:30 am start time with a duration of 2 hours... to coming on at a more uninterrupting time and changed the duration to 5 minutes, would love to change the duration to 0 minutes... any help appreciated

Re: Cannot turn off the Timer

Can you set the start/stop time to read 00:00? If so try that, it shouldn't go off at all. Another possible solution could be to turn it off and unplug it directly from the wall.... leave it for a minute or so, plug it back in and leave the timmer alone all together. If it has an internal memory, leaving it unplugged for a few minutes might reset the system. There might also be a main reset button hidden somewhere but you will have to look that up in the manual.

Re: Cannot turn off the Timer

To deactivate the timer:
Press the TIMER button on the unit until the little clock disappears from the top of the display (the clock is very small located dead center above the numbers on the display screen). Ref. page 17 of the manual.
Hope this helps.

How to remove timer

If the unit is controlled by a remote, the symptom you are experiencing could be cause by a function only available on the remote. I discovered this with my Yamaha 5-CD disc changer. However, my unit doesn't have an integrated Stereo. Your unit may mean that the remote handles more features. Search for a button that says MODE or AUX. If you still have the User Manual with the system, check to see what these buttons describe as controlling which features. Check back with me.

How do i turn off the alarm

Here's what to do:
1. Press 'Timer' on your system (or the combination of buttons needed to access that function on your remote). At this stage, 'O PLAY' should be seen on your display.
2. Press that same button again (or the combination of buttons needed to access that function on your remote), TWICE, and you should see 'O OFF' on your display.

.... and there you have it, the alarm/timer function is now turned off!
Still getting problems, please reply!

Setting clock

To set clock:
1. Press "Timer/clock button". The hour digit begins to flash.
2. Press (<< P.DOWN or >> P.UP) on the multicontrol to set Hours.
3. Press SET button. The minute digits begins to flash.
4. Press (<, P.DOWN or >> P.UP) on the multicontrol to set Minutes.
5. Press "Set" button."CLOCK OK" appears on the display. The clock stops flashing, and the clock timer starts from "0" seconds. If the clock is not set "AM 12:00" will flash instead of the clock indication. When the time has been set, TIMER/CLOCK can be used to operate the daily timer recording timer.
If you haven't the user manaul to your set with you now, send your email address to me by Fixya comment bos. I've the downloaded user manual to your set, and I'll send a copy of it to you by return mail. OK.

How can we turn off the automatic start of Radio or CD setting?

The activating and deactivating of the 24 hour timer is via a toggle button, labeled "TIMER" on towards the right side of the top console. When the TIMER is activated, you will see a small clock symbol on the LCD display. While the unit is on, tap the TIMER button once. The clock symbol will disappear and the timer is now off.

Reactivating the timer is the same process (remember, the button is a toggle). Tap the TIMER button and you'll see the timer settings show up on the display (time on, time off, source, and volume). The little clock symbol appears again.

If you have lost your manual, you can download another one for free from this location:

Good luck!

Alarm setting??

Try "playing" with the CountdownTimer feature: Setting the CountdownTimer 1. Press TIMER ON/OFF to enter timer setting mode. The red TIMER icon will flash on the display. 2. To select countdown time, use the TRK (SEARCH?TUNE) / buttons to select the correct time. Press and hold to fast forward or fast reverse countdown time. 3. Press TIMER ON/OFF again to activate the timer. The unit will beep twice to indicate countdown has started. The red TIMER icon will remain lit during countdown. 4. Press TIMER ON/OFF to turn timer off at any time or after it has sounded. good luck
