The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

If you don't have the manual, the usual sequenceof clock setting is one of these:

Clock > digits> Clock

Clock > digits> Start

Clear > Clock > digits> Clock

Clear > Clock > digits> Start

Clock > Clear > digits> Clock

Clock > Clear > digits> Start

Otherwise, it may be hard to help beyond this, since it;s been a long time since Toshiba made microwaves.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

After a power cut I need to set the clock of my saisho MW2500 before it can be used. How do I do this please?

Hi, we had a similar problem on an old work microwave, and to get that to work, pushing ANY key allowed the unit to work, regardless of clock setting.
Worth a try.

GE Spacemaker XL 1800 turns on for 1 second and then resets. The display shows PRESS CLOCK.

Sounds like your losing power, have you tried it on a completely Different circuit??? Either that or bad fuse or connections inside of microwave.

I have a GE profile spacemaker xl 1800 microwave. I used it once this morning but then upon a second use some time after, there was nothing on the display, as if power was lost on it. I opened the door and...

The door switch may have become defective, cutting off power completely. When the oven restarts, it prompts you to set the clock just as it would if there had been a power interruption. It is possible that something has failed in the control logic and that probably will require attention from a repair technician.

Operation manual is lost, how do I set the clock?

The manual for the Magic Chef MCD1311ST Microwave can be downloaded in pdf format from the following site (follow the link then click the "Manuals" tab):

If you don't have time to download, here's what the instructions state:

When the oven is first plugged in, the display will flash ":0" and a tone will sound. If the AC power ever goes off, the display shows ":0" when the power comes back on.

1. Touch CLOCK pad.
This is a 12 hour clock system.

2. Touch CLOCK pad once more.
This is a 24hour clock system.
NOTE: This oven has multiple clock system. If you want 12 hour clock system, omit this step.

3. Enter the correct time of day by touching the numbers in sequence.

4. Touch CLOCK pad.
The display stops blinking, and the colon start blinking. If you selected 12 hour clock system, this digital clock allows you to set from 1:00 to 12:59. If you selected 24 hour clock system, this digital clock allows you to set from 0:00 to 23:59.

5. Touch STOP/CLEAR pad.

NOTE: If you attempt to enter an incorrect time, the time will not be set and a error signal tone will sound. Touch the CLOCK pad and re-enter the time.

GE spacemaker Power goes off and clock needs resetting

Try going to the breaker box and shutting off the power to the microwave for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, turn back on and set the clock. This fixed my clock and turntable both. Apparently turning off the power resets the software in the clock.

Set clock time on microwave oven

I have consulted the Owners Manual and there is no mention of the demo mode. I would suggest that you unplug the unit or disconnect power if it is hard wired in, and try to set the clock then.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

CLOCK > 1 > 2 > 3 > CLOCK

CLOCK > 1 > 2 > 3 > START

CLOCK > CLEAR > 1 > 2 > 3 > CLOCK

CLOCK > CLEAR > 1 > 2 > 3 > START

Please let us know how it goes.
