1 Answer

My old bedside clock radio started gaining time on a regular basis then after a few months gave up all together. I bought a new clock radio which also gained 30-40 minutes a day, took it back and exchanged it for another - same result gaining 30-40 minutes per day. Took the clock to a friends house and l left it there overnight - worked perfectly, time spot on. Does this mean I have a problem with my electricity supply or is there some other factor that may be the cause?

Strange..... electricity runs in certain cycles.... maybe you need to check your electricity, or your wiring

I have a c218 and i can't set time


Hold the 'Clock' button until the display flashes. It will first show the year, next press on 'Clock' with show the month, then the day, then the time. Use + and - to set your time and press 'Clock' again.

Don't expect this clock to set the time by itself. It is not an atomic clock.

I had the same problem but saw that someone had solved the problem by buying a new power adaptor so I tried the same.
Success!
There are some people selling new power adaptors on eBay with good return policies so I'd recommend trying this before giving up hope.

Philips wake-up light HF3475 clock frozen


I had the same problem, that is how my problems with my beloved Phillips wake-up light started, the clock froze after having it for a little over 1 year..nothing worked so I gave up on it. I had it unplugged it for a few months over the summer.. when I turned it on again and the clock was unfrozen..?! Of course not fix-it solution for you..
But now it has new problems: It acts very strange, turns the light on and off by itself and sometimes gets this very annoying humming/buzzing sound.. which is gone when i "re-boot" it. I am sending it in for repair this week.
I simply can't survive the winter months without it!

Design of back of clock


I know how you feel... it is hell to get old. Have you tried looking at second hand stores for the old original Big Ben? I changed over to electronic digital alarms with battery backup, but I'm with you... it is not the same. It is a good thing that time becomes less critical to us as we age... except having more of it. Perhaps you can go to Westclox website and click on CONTACT, and send them a message yourself. Better in your own words than mine. http://www.alarmclocksonline.com/BigBens.htm May God richly bless you.

Describe your problem: Depress MONTH/DATE and ALARM1 for 3 seconds and display will show DST 'start' month,week,and date.
Display will show 4F 4.1, alternately flashing

4F = April First week. 4.1 = April 1.That is the old dates for change. What we want to do is to change to the new dates. Once it is done, it will change in the new dates as it did on the
old dates..

Hold down the MONTH/DATE button for 5 seconds, and while pressing the - or down button3 times, until the display shows '3'F2.
3 is month F2 is the week.
=March 2nd week.
You have successfully change the March changeover.

Now for the November change.
Depress and hold MONTH/DATE and ALARM2 after 3 second the display will show DST 'end' month,week, and date.
First digit will be 10 =month. second digit will be L=Last week, and date, will flash alternately.
While holding down the MONTH/DATE press the + or UP button once the display will show 11 (November) and F (first week) and 1 as date alternately flashing.
You have successfully set it for the next 100 years
