Wharfedale Micro cd/clock radio alarm volume!!!

No matter how many times I turn down the volume on the radio or cd on my alarm clock. whenever the alarm goes off it is at full blast and I cannot get the alarm to set at a reasonable sound level.I took it back to the shop and swapped it but this one does the same. Model is cd micro clock radio CCR1CD

Any idea if this is a common fault?

    Yeah I ended up swapping it for a different model in the end !! Must be faulty design!!

    I have had exactly the same problem. Initially I thought I wasn't setting it correctly but eventually gave up and returned it to the store. The replacement did excatly the same so I took that back yesterday to get 3rd one................ low and behold this one does the same. Obviously a faulty with every one of them which is a shame because I really like this particular item. Does anyone have a solution??????

    thank you, i thought i was being a bit dippy, i wasted time and energy having to take the ccr1cd back to the shop and trying out another one just to get the same outcome, jumping out of my sleep (and the rest of the household being woken up as well) instead of being woken up! what are wharfedale doing about this??

ZX clock radio: How dor i control the volume of the alarm ? How do i swtich from buzzer to radio for wake up?


I have owned several radio alarm clocks and I have found them all fairly intuitive to operate - no instructions needed, though sometimes it takes a short time of playing around to fill in the operating details.

The alarm buzzer is generated by the audio part of the radio and so those clock radios that do have a buzzer with adjustable volume it is controlled by the radio volume control. In this case it is usually the case that falling asleep to the radio with the volume turned down results in not being woken next morning because the alarm isn't loud enough.

Switching from radio alarm to buzzer is usually intuitive but in the absence of instructions there will be a limited number of switch combinations to play around with.

My alarm is set...but it doesnt go off.


There are 2 common mistakes with radio alarm clocks. 1) You have AM/PM backwards either on the actual time or alarm time 2) The volume is mistakenly set all the way down

Set alarm clock


goto http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/12057/~/operating-the-rca-rp4803-clock-radio
or follow instruction
  1. Press the SET button until WAKE 1 / WAKE 2 icon is blinking.
  2. Press REV or FWD to set the wake time. The time decrements or increments will follow by a faster rate when you press and hold either REV or FWD.
  3. After the WAKE time is set, press SET repeatedly until no icon is blinking.

Tips:

  • The unit equips with GRADU- WAKE feature, the alarm tone volume will increase gradually to its maximum in about 30 to 45 seconds.
  • If you set the SLEEP function with low volume level before going to bed, we advise using WAKE mode to wake you up since its volume will automatically increase.

Waking by Selected Source: You may be woken up by WAKE, RADIO or CD.

  1. Select an AM or FM station.
  2. Set wake time (see above directions).
  3. Press WAKE 1 or WAKE 2 to select waking up by WAKE, RADIO or CD. Corresponding indicator will be shown next to the selected setting.
  4. Adjust the volume by turning VOL.

You can select your CD wake track by the following procedures:

  1. Make sure you have inserted a CD.
  2. While holding WAKE UP CD TRACK, press REV or FWD to select your desired CD wake up track.

Wake up with the radio is always set to level 19... I would like to set my radio alarm with a lower volume... my centrios is a Speed to Sound CENTRIOS IPOD/IPHONE CLOCK RADIO I will return this


We also have this problem. Found this info in the product's Q&A on the website: http://answers.thesource.ca/answers/9026/product/1218694/centrios-centrios-ipod-iphone-clock-radio-white-questions-answers/questions.htm

"Ok. there is a way that you can LOWER the wakeup radio volume. turn on the radio (forget about the alarm right now) and go to the station that you want. when you get to the station, you should be able to press the 'skip/fast forward' button on the remote. when you do this, number 5 should show up beside the station #. When you do this, it lowers the overall volume of every volume level, so now level 19 is equal to volume level 9/10, which for me is loud enough to wake me, but not give me a heart attack! so, now when the alarm goes of, the volume is a lot lower. BUT if you want to wake up to your ipod, this method will NOT work, it will still be up at level 19. so when you turn on your ipod, it will be really LOUD. again, this only works with the radio."

Also if you are waking to ipod and not radio this was in the reviews:
"Fooled with it for a bit and discovered that you have to turn down the volume of the iPod first before putting it on the dock. We've tried it a few times just to make sure and it worked every time!!"

Still not a perfect solution, but a great improvement. Hope this helps someone.

My Sakar Darth Vader helmet clock radio did not come with instructions. How do you get it to talk and not just play the radio?


When you set the alarm, turn the volume button on the front counter-clockwise (volume down) until it clicks. Darth will then wake you with one of three extremely LOUD, over-modulated soundbites or the electronic "beep-beep-beep" alarm . You can select the different soundbites/alarm with the "SELE-AL" button on the back. The only problem is, you can't tell which one you've selected until the alarm goes off. Cheap design.

Matsui Radio Alarm CDCR200 set the clock time, lost instructions


Hold CLOCK SET button down, press HOURS and MINUTES until you get the right time, release CLOCK SET button. This radio alarm unhelpful calls the ON/OFF button "STANDBY"! To turn it on, press the STANDBY button so the standby light is on!

Alarm clock


The clock radio is mediocre, according to at least 15% of owners. First, the radio reception lacks clarity and the sound is tinny. Second, there are many small buttons and it's impossible to tell which is which in a dark room. Third, because the volume and radio tuner are adjusted by moving a dial, it is easy to accidentally move the device and turn down the volume as a result. This can be a problem if you've set the clock-radio alarm and the radio volume is too low.Kindly check these first.

My radio volume goes from full normal to full blast when it wants. I have to turn it off to save my speakers.


I would replace the radio. Especially if its stock. Look on www.craigslist.com and www.ebay.com for a replacement. You should get a good deal between the two.

Unable to set the alarm


To Set the alarm time: Press and hold the ALARM button down, and then press the hour/minute buttons to obtain desired time (Note the PM indicator on the screen for PM times)

To Enable the alarm: Move the sliding switch to AUTO or ALARM (Auto is for radio wake and Alarm is for beeping noise) *remember to turn up the volume knob if using AUTO (radio) setting.

I can't get the alarm to go off as the radio.


To turn off, hold down the mode button until the alarm/radio symbols disappear. To turn off nap, hold down nap button. Is the alarm volume controlled by the radio volume?
