My alarm clock seems to be keeping time for awhile, but then gradually loses time. I replace the battery and again, the same thing happens.

The quartz from the clock is very sensitive to the voltage of the source - even a minute difference can cause a frequency shift = time is no longer kept correctly. There's nothing you can do (the quartz can't be adjusted to compensate for the frequency drift) apart making sure you always have brand new batteries.

My GE Clock radio doesn't keep time. Radio is working. Have I pressed a wrong button ??


There are basically three types of electronic clock.
Quite old-fashioned are those that use the frequency of the mains electricity it is plugged into as a means of approximately keeping time. For practical purposes this type is more accurate than most mechanical types but may lose or gain a little and need adjusting from time-to-time.
If this type becomes unreliable there is nothing the user can do about it and an engineer would be needed or perhaps the garbage or recycling would be a better place.

The second type is the now very common quartz type where the clock circuitry keeps time by being triggered by a very accurate quartz crystal oscillator.
These types are generally so accurate it is worth providing battery back-up in case of power failure as well as preserving alarm and reminder settings.
If this type becomes inaccurate it indicates a problem with the circuitry and again recycling is probably the most practical option, though accumulated damp and dust inside can affect the delicate circuitry which might be restored to accuracy after a thorough internal clean.
I once had similar trouble with my clock radio which was caused in this instance by me forgetting how to operate it correctly. Spending a half-hour playing around with it refreshed my memory so in future I will remember when I have set the alarm to return the display to the clock.

The third type of clock is the radio controlled type that is set and keeps time by receiving a radio signal from a national atomic clock. They can do strange or unusual things if the signal is not being received properly or the clock is faulty but there is usually a function for setting the time manually though in my limited experience these aren't clocks for everyone and they aren't suitable for every location.
Good luck!

The alarm display in the lower right corner on model #RC40-A keeps blinking and will not stop. This happens with both wake 1 and wake 2 options. I fixed it once by unplugging the unit but it this did not...


Hello
Just reinstall the battries and adjust the time once again.

Battery back-up operation

* This clock radio is equipped with

a memory holding system that can

be powered with 2 "AA" batteries

(included). The power failure

protection circuit will not operate

unless battery is installed.

* When normal household power

is interrupted, or AC line cord

is unplugged, the batteries will

power the clock radio to keep

track of time and alarm settings

programmed into memory.

* When the battery backup functions,

the digital display will not light,

however, the function of alarm

still occurs during the power

interruption if remaining battery

power is adequate.

* Normal operation will resume after

AC power is restored so you will not
have to reset the time or the alarm

To install batteries:

1* Remove battery compartment door

(located at the bottom of the radio)

by applying thumb pressure to the

tab on battery door and then lift
the door out and off the cabinet

2* Insert 2 AA batteries (included).
3* Replace the compartment door

Replace batteries every year.

Power is fed to the unit even

when it is not functioning. To

cut the power supply off, the
power cable must be unplugged
OK.
