Question about Sangean H201 AM/FM Radio
Posted by Anonymous on
Here's the thing: When you change the batteries, the radio thinks you need to reset the time, even though the time has been preserved and is correct even after you change the batteries. Here's what you do: Pretend you need to reset the time. With the radio off (recommended), press and hold the "Band" button with the "set" notation underneath it. The hour will flash. "Reset" the hour by using the tuning buttons, as you would if the radio were new, and then change it back to the correct hour. Press the "Band" button again and repeat the process for the flashing minute display. Press "Band" again to end the process. You will have successfully fooled the H201 into thinking that you have reset the time, and the time display will have stopped flashing. (This does not appear to work if you do not actually pretend to change the hour and minute and just keep pressing the "Band" button -- you have to go through the procedure as though you were actually changing the time.)

Remove the battery compartment door and the batteries. There should be a small hole marked "reset" under the upper battery cradle. Press (gently...until it clicks) and hold for 5 seconds. Replace batteries and try again.

I didn't realize that I would have to pay for the answer until I got to that screen of course. I forgot that I had gotten the link from the advertiser's side of the Google search.
So, I just kept on looking and finally found the Sangean site, and there was a place to download the pfd manual. However, It would not download for me even after I updated Adobe Reader. So, I kept on looking some more and there was the suggestion to download it using IE, which I really don't like to do, but I did it and now I have the complete manual.
I don't think I would ever actually pay for a manual unless it was life or death or somthing.
Thanks for getting back to me

Archer, I have read the entire PR-3DL manual and there appears no mention of a 12/24 hr setting, unlike certain other Sangean radios. The instructions for setting the alarm do not mention 'a.m.' or 'p.m.' .
Apparently, the clock is a 24:XX:XX display only.

Hello, I assume that this only happens when you are using it on batteries and the unit works when plugged into the mains. If this is the case it most likely is a faulty or dirty connection in the main battery chamber. Clean all contacts reload new batteries and try again.
