    I can't get the time to set. If I set it at 8:30 and go off and come back it is

    still 8;30. I have no manual so don't know what to do. I have misplaced the manual. The clock/radio is about 4 months old. The radio has never

    been played. I liked it because the numbers are big and I can see them

    without my glasses. Can you please help me? Thanks.

You cannot set the time. It is automatic. Make sure both alarms are off, then unplug the power. Set the switches on the left hand back side, then plug the power in and wait. The time should start up and correct itself within two minutes. Works for me. Good luck, Rattler

Maybe you should slide that thing on the top to clock and make sure it's not on the alarm clock

On the back of the clock - left hand side if you've laid it down on it's face - is a row of switches. You need to start the time set-up with the clock having been unplugged so there's no time set in the memory5.gif.
Now, to those switches: The first (from the left) is DST = Daylight Savings Time - right now you'de set this to "ON."
The second switch is Time Zone: PST, MST, CST, EST (Pacific, Mountain, Central, Eastern). Set the switch to the time zone you are in.
The third is just the brightness.

Now, to set the time itself:
1 - Turn the clock face back up to where you can see it.
2 - LOOK AT THE CLOCK - LOL! This is an atomically set clock - you shouldn't need to set the time. The atomic clock bounces off of satellites all around the world. There is literally little to no "dead zones" for the clock, so you should never have to set your clock - just set it up like I state at the beginning.

Good Luck!

Hello
Before going to set the timer, you have to set the current time. Set it according to the manual with you. If the timer function work properly, there must be an uninerrupted power supply also. If the power goes off, the set time will also get resetted, and improper function will occur.
After setting the present time, set the "on" time and "Off" time. The TV will switch on at that time you set, and will switch off automatically after the end time. OK.

Cant move off manual settings screen


okay, unplug your internet modem for 15 min, keep the connection to the PS3, of course. do automatic settings, not manual, select easy but DO NOT GO FURTHER until you plug in your internet. Let it cycle, the modem may shut down. if/when it does, turn it on and continue. The PS3 should automatically find everything by itself. Confirm then test the settings.
