I got the iH8 as a present everything works fine except for the ipod alarm. the unit will play my music when i press the play ipod button, and recognizes its plugged in, but when i set the ipod alarm, without taking out the ipod or anything, it doesnt go off with my music, it just buzzes. Idont think it is the ipod because i have updated the software on the ipod and have even tried 3 different ipods with the iH8. i have had the iH8 for about 2 weeks and set it nearly every day, and out of all those times it has gone off with my music only 3 times. How do i get it to work every time!??

    LCD light has gone out

    You will need to send it back to the manufacturer for repair for this. No doubt the LCD backlight has either burnt out of has a bad soldier connection inside. This can also happen if the unit has been dropped.

    Good Luck,

    Timex t439s clock display light out

    The display on my clock is red as well. I found it that way when I came home from work today. It had lost all of its settings as well. I put everything back to the way it was supposed to be but I can't get the color to change. I guess something just quit.

    Backlight LCD adjustment possible? Owner's Manual?

    The backlight comes on automatically when plugged in and 3 seconds after the talk bar is pushed if the unit is operating on battery. The colors are based on temperature

    Here is the link to the user manual; They do not mention any backlight feature in the manual - looking at other similar models, they describe the procedure in the manual - you just have to press the snooze button to turn it on or off. might be worth a try. reading reviews of the clock there is supposed to be a blue backlight feature - try pressing display when in radio or cd mode and you should get a menu of display options - i imagine one of these will allow you to select backlight on/off If none of the above works then try contacting them directly (numbers are in the manual) check this link if you want more info as they are recently bought out) Hope this helps :)
