Question about Sangean H201 AM/FM Radio

1 Answer

Sangean h2o1 clock is flashing. The radio display doesn't flash - only the clock. I've reset the clock, changed the batteries, and generally played with the other settings. Can't figure out why the time display is blinking on and off. It flashes in the same way it does when you set the time, but it's the whole clock - not just the hour or the minutes. The flashing occurs whenever the time is displayed.

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.

SOURCE: I need to find an owner's manual for my Sangean

Hi,

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.

How do I set the time on Timex T231 clock radio?


Setting The Time of T231
NOTE: The time can only be adjusted when the clock radio is in the OFF mode. If the radio is playing, press and hold the MODE/ALM RESET button until the display briefly shows 'OFF' and then reverts to the time.
1. If the display is flashing, press the HOUR / REV button to advance the display to the correct hour. If the display is not flashing press and hold the CLOCK button until the display begins to flash, then press the HOUR / REV button to advance the display to the correct hour. Observe the PM indicator to confirm that you have set the hour correctly. If the PM indicator is 'On' the hour on the display is PM. If the PM indicator does not appear the hour on the display is AM.
2. Press the MIN / FF button to advance the display to the correct minute.
3. When the correct time is flashing on the display press the CLOCK / PRESET button once more. The display stops flashing and the clock begins to run.

How to enable alarm on sangean wr-2 clear


It's tricky but it can be done.. I should add that it'll require some patience but it'll happen. First thing is hit reset on the bottom of radio. Second thing is to interrupt the RDS (scrolling message after reset) by hitting the power button. Now long press set until it begins to flash 12:00. COUNT the flashes until the 26TH flash and hit BAND. It doesn't always work, but you'll know it does when the word alarm, an alarm clock symbol, and a speaker symbol are on the display above the time. I should also mention that it helps to switch the antenna (external & internal switch on the back) a few times (3 at least, 5 most) during both the RDS scrolling after reset AND while counting the flashes. They (Sangean) disabled the alarm, but some determined soul figured this out and it's been passed on by word of mouth through inmates. Good Luck. It's been my alarm clock on the streets here for 3 years now.

I got a new Sangean clock radio R22. Te atomic clock doesn't pick up the time and I can't get it to set manually either. It reads ony L 0 on the right side. I have the part that receives set in a window....


I just had the same problem which you find posted here on FixYa.com. The problem solved itself overnight for me. I left the RCR-22 unit plugged in and searching for the signal when I woke up the next morning the time was set and the Atomic signal indicator was solid instead of flashing. It has kept perfect time since then. My only issue is that setting the alarm clock-radio is complicated.

JVC's KD-PDR30 flashes 0:00-A on display


I've just fixed mine. There's a reset "button". Take the face plate off, you'll see a little hole, yes it's a hole. Stick something thin and pointy in it and hold a couple of seconds, I used my earring, a pen tip won't work, I tried. It would reset the whole thing, display should show "1:00". Then you just have to work on your settings, adjust the time, etc. Hope it works for you as it has for me.

Replaced battery - need to reset clock / radio won't play


My manual said the same thing. Although I have never had the radio stop working on me even after I changed the battery. To set the clock you hold the mode button, like your changing the bass/ treble. Hold it down then it will show clock flashing. From there I cant remember i think i used the arrows by the number pad to change the time. Hope this works for you.

Lost preset memory and time


This means that your radios processor is scrambled. All you need to do is reset the processor by removing the batteries again overnight and then reapply.
