Radio worked fine......then I was trying to find another channel by turning the tuner knob and all of a sudden it just locked and when I turn the tuner knob it won't change stations. Nothing works but the...

This may help: If you take off the front of the radio (don't forget 2 screws in back!) you will notice a set of black and red wires running from the 2 AA backup batteries to the digital display circuit board. The wires plug into the board with a little white plug. If you unplug this the display will fade to nothing. If you plug it back in it will display an unset digital clock format. This seems to reset the radio, after which it should work.

The time is flashing on the screen and it continues to flash. Can't turn on the unit, change time, etc? It's like it is locked out I need to push a couple of different buttons to turn it on?...

Check the red key protect button on the front top left of the radio. If it is activated there will be a key icon on the screen. Press it once to deactivate it & the key icon should be gone & the rest of the buttons should work.

No Battery Power

Late with this answer.... Battery tabs sometimes loose contact with signal board near volume slide, possible solution is to reapply solder and bend contacts slightly.

Locked keys

Hi. I have a different Jwin model radio to yours, but they might have this in common: is there a 'hold' button on yours? If so, this is used to 'lock' all the buttons so that you don't switch it on/ change stations etc accidentally. Look for a 'key' symbol on your display, and press AND HOLD the 'hold' key until the symbol disappears. Pressing the 'hold' button briefly will make the symbol re-appear, and lock the keys again.

Locked radio?

I h ad the same problem which I took of the two black plastic caps removed the five screws which splits the radio in two pieces. Just follow the leads from the battery and disconnect the plug on the board until you lose the display then put every thing back together and reproggram it again.
