    I've had the same problem for months. Once I unplugged it and when I replugged it in the LCD numbers came up normal. I saw one other post with a similiar Sangean problem, the fix involved taking it apart, washing the board with alcohol, etc. It didn't say it worked! The radio is great, but ... I can almost make out the numbers at times but it's not good. I need a clock radio I can read! Joe

I've has this radio for 3 years and until yesterday it has performed flawlessley. I've run it on D batteries that whole time.

Yesterday the batteries died and when I replaced them the screen was blank... I took out that batteries and found the AC cord in the box and plugged it in, screen still blank.

I tried new batteries, screen still blank. everything else working perfectly. But I use this radio as a sleep radio at nights so I need to see the screen to set the sleep-time.

I took out the batteries,and disconnected the AC power for 30 minutes. Put back the fresh batteries and BINGO... screen is working perfectly again.

This is a defect in the radio. Reportedly this issue was resolved in later vamps of production, but it still seemed to persist. We discontinued this model due to this exact reason. At this time there is no other solution and the factory can not tell us what the problem was and simply pointed to the LCD.

We have a client with the Sangean PR-D8, the problem are that its keeps corrupting the file on the SD card when recording using the Timer setting it show that its record but when complete the MP3 file...


I have similar problem with this set - recordings are corrupted. Every few seconds a fraction of a second is cut off. Probably it's a problem with SD card. Someone reported this problem in amazon.com customer review for Kingston 4 GB Class 4 SDHC Flash Memory Card SD4/4GBET

Display disappeared but the backlight, radio, cd and everything else works ok.


Could be the LCD or the display processor. If it's an 06, there is a possibility of liquid damage to the faceplate PCB .

Sangean h2o1 clock is flashing. The radio display doesn't flash - only the clock. I've reset the clock, changed the batteries, and generally played with the other settings. Can't figure out why the time...


Here's the thing: When you change the batteries, the radio thinks you need to reset the time, even though the time has been preserved and is correct even after you change the batteries. Here's what you do: Pretend you need to reset the time. With the radio off (recommended), press and hold the "Band" button with the "set" notation underneath it. The hour will flash. "Reset" the hour by using the tuning buttons, as you would if the radio were new, and then change it back to the correct hour. Press the "Band" button again and repeat the process for the flashing minute display. Press "Band" again to end the process. You will have successfully fooled the H201 into thinking that you have reset the time, and the time display will have stopped flashing. (This does not appear to work if you do not actually pretend to change the hour and minute and just keep pressing the "Band" button -- you have to go through the procedure as though you were actually changing the time.)

Sangean PR-D3L - How do I change between 12 and 24


Archer, I have read the entire PR-3DL manual and there appears no mention of a 12/24 hr setting, unlike certain other Sangean radios. The instructions for setting the alarm do not mention 'a.m.' or 'p.m.' .

Apparently, the clock is a 24:XX:XX display only.

Don't be mis-led by the working display. I had the "no power" problem with a working display too. I measured the voltage of the two AA batteries. One was 1.33 volts and the other was only 0.76 volts. Replaced the weak AA and everything worked. I suspect the 'enable' circuitry fails around/below 2.1v.

Display hard to read


My radio was dropped and parts of the display disappeared, but the display did not break. Unless you have some background in radio repair, DO NOT attempt this repair! If you do, it is at your risk, or the risk of damaging your radio! I disassembled the radio and found the display. There are 2 "rubber strips" that fit next to the LCD. I cleaned and reseated the strips and display about 3 times before getting it right. AGAIN, unless you know what you are doing, and can solder on circuit boards with a proper pencil iron, don't even contemplate it! Let someone who can do it.
