Question about RCA RP3722 Clock Radio

1 Answer

Off button doesn't work any more

I have two of these clock radios.  One doesn't get used because the radio reception is almost nil, and I hate beeper alarms.  The one with a working radio now won't turn off when I press the OFF button.

How do I set alarm? Instructions long gone


To the left of the display are two buttons, engraved "1" and "2". (Note, I'm NOT referring to the buttons for radio presets, which are below.)

Hold either of these buttons for a second or two to enter alarm set mode. The screen prompts will prompt you to set the time for the alarm to go off using the time set buttons to the right of the display. You can also press one of the radio preset buttons or the AUX or CD buttons to wake to one of those. Once you're done setting the alarm, quick presses of these alarm buttons turn the alarm on and off and choose between music and beeper.

As a side note, if you've installed the backup battery and the power fails during the night, the alarm will still go off with the beeper so you're not late for work -- a thoughtful touch from Cambridge Soundworks.

Fm reception for weak stations poor. reception on car radio fine.


If there is no FM Antenna connection you can try to move the power cord to different positions and see if you get a better signal. If not then move the unit closer to a window or try various locations that might have better reception.

How to change the time on the Timex auto set clock radio.. the DST hasn't switched back to EST.


Timex T309TT Clock Radio.

Setting the time:
Unlike another review that says it automatically sets the time, I did not find that to be the case, I believe the model with the cd player does that, but this one had to be set. I'm not one to usually read the manual as I like to figure things out on my own, and was able to set the time without the use of it. It was as simple as holding the time set button and using the reverse and forward buttons to advance the time. Unlike some clocks, you do not have the option to change just the hour or just the minutes, you have to forward or reverse through all the hours/minutes.

Calendar:
The alarm can be set to go off 7 days a week, 5 days (Monday-Friday), or 2 days (Saturday & Sunday). Again, easy to do with pushing the date button and using the forward and reverse buttons to scroll through the dates.

Adjustable display: There are 3 levels of lighted display, pressing the snooze/dimmer button allows you to change between the three. Nice touch!

Radio Operation:
After pressing the Radio on the display will show the word "on" before returning to the clock display. The bottom display shows the radio frequency.
There are 18 programmable radio station settings with the buttons to access them right on the front of the clock labeled 1-6. Programming is easy with just finding a station you like and pressing and holding one of the preset buttons until it beeps to confirm it was accepted.
I find the radio to get fairly good reception and for the times it doesn't , after moving the attached wire antennae it would pick up a better reception.
So far my experience with the sound quality has been good.
The radio also has a last station memory, so after being turned off and then back on, will recall the last station you were listening too.

Alarm:
Setting the alarm is fairly simple. To set , simply press the alarm button until the time on the screen starts to flash. Then you can click the button to choose through 3 settings which are every day, weekends, or Mon-Fri. This radio also comes with nature sounds. I have not used this feature at this time. You have the choice of
* Ocean surf
* Forest spring
* Rushing brook
* Summer wind

Hope this helps :)

I got the clock from my daughter and have no manual. I keep setting the time, and it keeps changing to 2 hours earlier. I think I've pretty much figured out everything else, though this is NOT intuitive.


Hi, your clock radio is an atomic clock radio... no wait you don't need your lead underwear! it receives a signal from the atomic clock and sets the time to match it, after you set the time zone and put it on auto dst you will never have to set the time again!

ENVIRONMENTAL RECEPTION EFFECTS:


The Atomic Clock obtains the accurate time with wireless technology. Same as all wireless devices, the receiving ability may be affected by, but not limited to, the following circumstances:


  • Long transmitting distance.
  • Nearby mountains and valleys.
  • Among tall buildings.
  • Near railway, high voltage cable, etc.
  • Near freeway, airport, etc.
  • Near construction site.
  • Inside concrete buildings.
  • Near electrical appliances.
  • Near computers and televisions.
  • Bad weather locally or electrical storms between you and Colorado.
  • Inside moving vehicles.
  • Nearby metallic structures.

LOCATION PRECAUTIONS:


This clock receives a radio wave much like a TV or radio. Be sure to locate it near a window or some other location where reception is good. Avoid the following locations, which can interfere with proper reception.




Synchronization signal reception can be received in Continental USA only. In other areas, you can still use this clock by making time settings manually.


QUICKSTART

  1. Place your clock in a location with optimal signal marks on the LCD.
  2. It is recommended to put the clock near a window. Please move the clock to another location if difficulty in signal reception or unstable signal marks is encountered.

Installation
Simply plug the SkyScan clock radio into any household outlet.


Battery Back-up Operation
This clock radio is equipped with alarm time memory that can be powered with a 9-volt battery (not included).When normal household power is interrupted, or the AC cord is unplugged, the battery will power the clock to keep track of the time and set alarm. When the backup battery activates, the LCD backlight is off, however, the functions of alarm and radio still operate.


To Install the Battery
  1. Remove the battery cover at the bottom of the case.
  2. Connect a 9-volt battery to the connector plug.
  3. Insert the battery in the compartment and replace the cover.
Note: An Alkaline battery is recommended. Carbon Zinc and rechargeable (nickel cadmium) batteries not recommended.

Set the Time Zone Press the SET button in sequence until you see PST(Pacific Standard Time)blinking below the time digits on the LCD. Press UP or DOWN button to select your time zone.


Daylight Savings Time
Always slide the DST switch to ON position unless the clock is used in an area without Daylight Savings Time.
**Special attention to usage in Arizona and Indiana. **Arizona and parts of Indiana do not recognize Daylight Savings Time (DST). Turn the DST off if the clock is used in these areas.

Cheers!

FM reception for Sony ICF-CD513?


The electrical cord acts as an antennae for this radio. Uncoiling the cord will give the best reception for FM. Rotating the radio (and built in ferrite bar antennae) will give the best reception for AM listening.

Alarm clock


The clock radio is mediocre, according to at least 15% of owners. First, the radio reception lacks clarity and the sound is tinny. Second, there are many small buttons and it's impossible to tell which is which in a dark room. Third, because the volume and radio tuner are adjusted by moving a dial, it is easy to accidentally move the device and turn down the volume as a result. This can be a problem if you've set the clock-radio alarm and the radio volume is too low.Kindly check these first.
