It sounds like it got fried by that power outage, did you have a surge protector on it? If you just bought it in December it should still be under warranty. I recommend you call Emerson and see what they can do about it.

My radio stopped working after a power surge tripped the breaker for the outlet it was plugged into.


I have had several different makes of clock radios and all said that it was battery back up for power failure
none worked and all settings had to be redone
power surges do not trip breakers as they are in effect a fuse to prevent damage to the wiring in a dead short situation or when a unit fails
even surge protectors will still pass power after a surge but will no longer protect against another surge

How do I get the battery to operate the clock when the power is off. I have the battery in correctly, but when the power is off the clock goes off?


I just read the manual an I am not sure it does. The manual says nothing about that. My clock does the same when power fails. Comes back to correct time when power returns. I miss that on my older clock. Display never went out even during power outage. You can call Phillips an ask or email. It is on there site.

The display is suddenly filled with information (sometimes unreadable). Everything has now stopped working.


From the sounds of it the microprocessor is scrambled, this can be caused by a power surge or thunderstorm, unplug unit, press and hold power button for 60 seconds in an attempt to clear the processor, if this fails this will be a job for a Bose factory trained technician.

After a power outage of approximately 45 minutes i have no display


Hello
There is a Lithium battery inside your clock to get a backup even the power is interrupted for a long time. This battery may last up to 3 years eventhough there is no power to the device. If this has gone weak, the backup fucntion will not be. so check this battery.
Just reset the device. It will make it work properly. To reset the clock after total memory loss; do the folloing.

[1] Connect the radio to your AC outlet and let the clock set itself.

[2] Depress the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons together. The display will change
from 'Time'to 'Year'

While holding the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons, press the SET + button
to set the display to the correct Year, then release the buttons
OK.

We had a momentary power failure (breaker tripped). Once power was restored, the radio works but the clock does not. No display at all. Any idea?


It sounds like the outage caused a surge in power and damaged your clock. I recommend connecting all your equipment to surge protector power strips.

I have a Philips clock radio. Will the radio come on during a power outage with a battery?


Friend,

I agree that there is a battery in the device. But, it is only to maintain the time during power outage. It is just a button cell good enough to run the clock internally. It does not even show time, despite the clock running. And when the power restores, the time is displayed.

So, the answer to your query is NO.

Our Bose did the same thing after a power outage. This one doesn't have a CD button, so we tried holding down the Clock button and used the volume control and that seems to have fixed it.

I had the some problem a few days ago when we had a power outage during the night. Try unplugging it, leave it unplugged for about 10-20 seconds, and replug it back in. Reset your time on the clock and it should work then.
