We cannot get the radio to play music upon the alarm going off. All we get is static. How do you tune in a radio station for the alarm? The radio works okay on its own, we just cant get a station linked to the alarms
Have you done the presets on the memory. Do that then select the station you want to wake up to. Hopefully its fm. Per the instruction manuel . Set or adjust the alarm time if necessary. Press the Alarm on/off button if necessary until one of the alarm indicatior either the note or alarm appears on display when the buzzer alarm is selected.

I'm selling these Zenith Z1233BA Clock Radios
on ebay. I have sold about 10 without any problems, but someone just ask if I know where the get the instructions. I could not find the manual online.
Here are some of the basic.
To set the time set the lock button on the bottom to off, press the clock button, the clock will flash then use the set buttons on top to change the time. Use the <> to change the time, when the time is set press and hold the enter button until you hear a beep. You have to cycle through all the minutes to get to the next hour. Do the same to set the zone. And to set the Date select the CAL button and do the same as setting the time. Put it back on lock when the time, date and zone are set.
To set the Alarm press the Alarm Set button then use the set buttons on top change the Alarm time. Use the <> to change the Alarm time, when the Alarm time is set press and hold enter until you hear a beep. Press the Alarm On/Off button to select radio or buzzer for the alarm or alarm off. To set the PRESETS tune the radio to the station you want to be a PRESET, then press and hold a PRESET button until you hear a beep.
Check your antenna. If the mast is not extended, your reception will be limited. try an AM station, usually a local AM station will still come in even with the mast down. Have you tried playing a CD (if equipped) ? If that plays well, you've confirmed lack of reception as the problem. If the mast is extended and you still do not have reception, the antenna plug my have come out of the back of the radio. The requires removing the radio to check.
To use the worry-free backup battery, get a 9V battery. Then look for the battery compartment on the bottom of the unit. Press the tab with your thumb and then lift the cover out and away. Plug in the battery and then replace the cover.
Press Wake Time once and use the forward/reverse buttons to set the alarm time. Then press Wake Mode repeatedly to toggle between the options of wake to radio, wake to CD, or wake to alarm. (Note the radio must be tuned to your desired station and a CD needs to be in the player for these to work).
The Smart Snooze means that pressing Snooze, forward, reverse, play or stop will turn off the alarm temporarily. (Pressing Off will prevent the alarm from sounding again today.)
if the radio alarm is still showing the nonexistent 98.5, you would need to reset the radio alarm. Press and hold button 1 (top left hand side) until the display starts blinking. Then press the preset button for 98.1. It should then display 98.1 on your radio alarm.
good luck this is the most difficult set of instructions I've seen yet
other than just double checking your switches settings there really isn't much you can do ,as there really isn't any easy to replace parts inside and that would be cost prohibitive anyhow , but do remember it is a clock radio , if its set t o use the alarm the radio will not work and not the cd either , ck all your switches for proper setting , one may have got bumped by you or cleaning staff
this is the reason I use a sound bar/phone dock as I use it to charge my phone and play music all day at my desk , they only cost about fifteen bucks to buy , and best thing is there's nothing for anyone to mess with when im not there as it wont work without my phone docked in it !!
