Question about Emerson IC172 Clock Radio

Open Question

I have the Emerson iC172 clock radio with time projector, ipod dock, and a progressive alarm that gets louder as it goes off. It also has a motion sensor for the snooze. I love this clock, but recently we lost electricity and since then the progressive alarm doesn't get any louder. Everything else works but it is so soft I'm afraid one of these days my husband and I will both sleep right through it. I've searched the unit and the manual and can't find anything to help with the problem. I'm really hoping you can help because we both love this clock and don't know if we'll find another one with all the same features. Thanks!

A-ha! Those manuals sure do come in handy sometimes. I found the solution. In addition to functioning as a snooze button for delaying the alarm, the snooze button is also a brightness button for the time. If you press snooze one time it changes the time brightness from bright to dim, press it again and it goes from dim to motion sensitive only, press it again and it returns to bright.

I just tried this and resolved my problem. I hope it helps you as well.
Enjoy!

1.You will need to reset the microprocessor of the Clock/Radio. To do this you must unplug the Clock/Radio and take out the internal battery. You must let the Clock/Radio set unplugged and with out the battery for at lease 1 hour. Then replace the battery and plug in the Clock/Radio and see if the functions return to normal.If not try replacing the internal battery (CR2430) and leaving the Clock/Radio unplugged for a few hours. Then put in the new battery and Plug in the Clock/Radio and see if the functions return to normal. If not you may have other problems with the microprocessor.

How do I set the time and alarm on the TDK TA4210BK, I've lost the manual and can't find anywhere to download it from.


Its actually really irritating. You have to turn off all the alarms i.e. so no little bell icons are showing in the display and also turn off the radio i.e it shows OFF. Then, and only then, if you hold down the SET button you will be taken to the time setting menu which starts with a blinking 12H sign. Once in this menu its like any clock radio - you push up or down on the right hand side to select higher or lower numbers and hit SET again to progress to the next feild. You must complete the entire setup menu i.e you must keep hitting SET until you are back at the main screen or it will just forget what you entered go back to whatever it was before you started. Very opaque if you dont have the manual, so I thought everyone else could get 45 minutes of their life back. BTW, the holding down SET with the iPOD in the dock doesnt work for me - its supposed to according to some entries on the web.

Alarm clock and time w/ clok smooth ipod system


Hi,

According to the instructions that we received with our clock. You should be able to get the Instruction manual from prodinfo@gpx.com. It is also supposed to be under the support section of the website www.dpi-global.com but I couldn't find such a link.

However the "Operational Support" insert has the following:

Setting the clock
1. With the unit powered off, press and hold the "Clock/Display/Play/Pause Button" for at least 4 seconds.
2. While holding the "Clock/Display/Play/Pause Button", press the "Hour" and "Minute Buttons" to adjust the hour and minute on the time.
3. When the correct time is selected, release the "Clock/Display/Play/Pause Button" to set the clock

Setting the Alarms
1. With the unit powered off, press and hold the "AL1" or "AL2" Button for at least 4 seconds.
NOTE: An alarm icon will begin to flash on the LCD display.

2. While holding the "AL1" or "AL2" Button, press the "Hour" and "Minute Buttons" to adjust the hour and minute on the alarm time.

3. When the correct time is selected, release the "AL1" or "AL2" Button to set the clock.

4. Press the "AL1" or "AL2" Button consecutively to switch alarm one and alarm two between sounding to a buzzer, the currently set radio station, or a docked iPod.

Insignia clock radio goes to 12:00 after turning off power


I found this solution by reading some reviews. A reviewer said it was caused by a weak backup battery that powers the display. He said to change the lithium backup battery of the main unit with the backup battery in the remote. I tried it and now it works. I can turn the unit on and off and it doesn't reset my memory. But this hasn't solved my problem with setting the alarm.

Emerson iPod Clock Radio Docking Station #IC200BK radio


I was having a similar problem with my ic200bk stereo dock. After unplugging the machine, replugging it, and allowing the auto set to occur, a timer is activated while nothing else works. I spoke with an Emerson employee about the problem, but he wasn't very helpful. He simply indicated the unit needs to be repaired (which, conveniently, they don't do) or replaced (by only if your 90-day warranty is still in effect...also convenient for me). Bottomline: your unit is **** is Emerson can't (or won't) do a thing about it.

I'm done with Emerson forever.
