We have a Fisher Slim 3010 Shelf System stereo and had a quick power outage and now the unit does not want to turn on. The red standby light is on so I know power is getting to the stereo. There is no time display though and none of the buttons work. Help it is my alarm clock!!!
For Fisher SLIM1500 Model, I figured out as below.
1/- Plug into AC outlet & see Standby ON.
2/- Press TIMER button & see TIMER at left corner of screen with AM12:00.
3/- Press and hold Standby until Screen comes ON & Standby goes OFF. Everything will get started from here- play CD, Radio, etc.

According to Page 46 of the LBT-W5000 Operating Instructions:
"The display stars flashing as soon as you plug in the power cord even though you haven't turned on the system (demonstration mode).
Press DISPLAY (for LBT-W5000 / W300 / XB700 / XB500) or DEMO (STANDBY) (for other models) while the system is off. If the system is in the Power Saving mode, press POWER SAVE / DEMO (STANDBY) (for LBT-W5000 / W300 / XB700 / XB500).
The demonstration appears automatically the first time you plug in the power cord, or if there is a power outage lasting longer than half a day."
I tested this today, as my LBT-W5000 was in Demonstration Mode. It definitely works. The only catch is (at least on the W5000), and it's a minor one, you have to reset your clock afterwards.
It doesn't sound like you're doing anything wrong. It sounds like that is the way the unit was designed. It's a power save feature.
Can you see the time on the screen if the room light is on? If not, the backlight won't do you any good anyway.
Unless there is some sort of menu that allows you to change it, you're probbaly stuck with the way it is. It's all in the software thats programmed into the microprocessor and that's almost impossible to modify.
The only thing I could think of is to find the backlight voltage line and power it directly off of the power supply (using isolation diodes), keeping it on all the time. This however requires you to take the unit apart and dive into the electronics - something you may not wish to do.
with the unit turned off press memory once and the hour digits flash.
Press the cd ship |<< or >>| buttons to adjust the hour.
Press memory again and the minute digits flash
Press the cd ship |<< or >>| buttons to adjust the minutes
press memory once more. the display stops flashing and the clock has been set.
Press POWER to Turn ON the unit.
Press CD/Door OPEN.
With the Doors Open, on the Inside Right is a "Clock Set" Button... Press it once.
With the Hour blinking, press the "CD-Tuner-Skip" Up or Down Buttons to set hour.
Press the "Clock Set" Button again to make the minute display blink.
Adjust the minutes the same way.
Once the hour and minutes are both set, be sure to press the "Clock Set" button
one more time. Now the Hour and Minute display should no longer be blinking and
you should be good to go. (I just figured it out for myself.) Hope this helped!
