Question about Clock Radios

1 Answer


I gave my son one of these ipod docks for xmas but we can't find any instructions for it they were not in the box and PC World said that we would have to get them from Hitachi themselves, however they say that it isn't a european product and that they cant help - where can I get user instruction manual for this alarm clock - ipod dock? Any ideas?

    The clock on the HIT KC91 is running slow - very slow - it slows up by around 2 hours per day!

    The trouble shooting section of the manual tells me that 'the clock/tuner backup battery is low' - it then goes on to say - open the unit and replace with a new backup battery.

    This is not what I want to hear because earlier in the manual it says clearly - Never open the casing, there are no servicable parts!

    Clearly the designers decided to put the battery inside (stupid thing to do!) but then forgot about allowing access to change it out (even more stupid!) can Hitachi be this stupid?

    With no more instructions in the manual I decided to start opening it up.

    (I never did manage to find the battery and eventually gave up, but, for your information, here's what I did)

    -Unplug unit from mains.

    -Remove 2 long rubber feet on the bottom then remove the 4 screws underneath, then, with a blunt knife gently prise the bottom panel off - its stuck on with 4 sticky pads - you can feel them gently give way as you prise off the bottom panel. With the panel off, you find you have not got very far as there is another panel in place!

    -You can then loosen the top panel (I never removed it, only loosened it) by removing the 2 black silicon rubber bungs - use snipe nose pliers to pull them out - then remove the 2 screws underneath. Prising up the top panel a little then allows you to remove the back panel.

    -Going back to the bottom panel, remove the three screws that are now visible, you can prise off the back panel.

    Now, this is as far as I went, because I could still not see the battery and I was aware that removing yet more panels could seriously knacker the unit - ie: I bottled out.

    Good luck

    I've decided to live with out the clock.

Hi, I have one of these - You need to tap the "clock" icon (centre button on the right) twice. The display will flash. then press the "return" button the scroll through the hour/minute/tuner sections on  the display using the up & down arrows to change.

Hitachi KC-82 manual available ?

Hello Patrick Allfrey,

By Hitachi... I was seriously abused as a child... SU carburetors are bad enough but when HITACH CORPORATION decided to put out their semi-(MAL)functional... (YUK)...
SMOG-SAFE imitation side draft ... carburetors... on the otherwise GLORIOUS (brand-spanking-new) 1973 DATSUN 240Z...

I my humble opinion! (truth is... otherwise awesome innovators).

It does not surprise me that I can search the cyber GLOBE...
and find vast quantities of equipment orphaned to a "LEGACY" GROUP... (but still no sign of your - KC-82)

I was TOTALLY unable to find any KC-82... anywhere.

I did find a "docking station" closely numbered...

attributable perhaps to a dirty/damaged identity plate...

Any chance we are talking about a very clever

Else I will post 3 dead end avenues... And you can develop your own: GOOD HUNTING.

How can we preset radio stations on RD-N1

I'm not familiar with this particular stereo but typically radio presets are programmed by manually seeking out your favorite channel. Once you' be tuned in, press and hold the button (usually numbered 1-5 or 1-6 for preset programming) hold the button until you hear a beep or the display flashes briefly. If this is a newer touch screen style radio, these instructions may be antiquated and most likely insulting :)
