    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!

I cant find the manual so I dont remember how to set the weekday alarm. Also can you show a picture of what the display should look like when the alarm is set? Or describe it? Thank you.


Press the Alarm button. The weekday alarm symbol will appear. Then press and hold the Alarm button for 2 seconds to enter the set mode (the hour will blink). Use the up/down buttons to choose the hour for the alarm (note the A.M./P.M. if in 12 hour mode). Press Alarm again and the minute will blink. Again use the up/down arrows to set the desired time. Press Alarm once more to exit the set mode.

To activate or deactivate the alarm, press the Alarm button until the weekday alarm icon appears. Then use the up/down arrows to activate or deactivate the alarm. When the alarm is set and active, the time will show. If the alarm has been deactivated, then dashes will appear instead of the time.

The single alarm is set and checked similarly.

I hope this helps.

There should be a button on the top of the radio. If it's a steady red, then you've got the same problem I have.
