GE Model 7-4966A Clock Radio

The bulb holder to display the time has broken and will not stay in place. As a result, we can not see the time on the clock. Where can I get a replacement bulb holder in the Syracuse, NY area?

SOURCE: FM/AM GE Digital clock radio model#7-4966 display bulb burned out

Geri, I recently had the same problem with my GE model 7-4966 clock radio. The radio manual states that there is a spare bulb included and stored on the underside of the battery compartment door on the bottom of the clock radio. To replace the bulb: 1. Twist the bulb bar handle on the underside of the radio to unlock and remove the holder. 2. Carefully pull the bulb out of the holder and replace with the spare bulb. 3. Place the holder back in place, twist the bar handle to the right to "lock" the bulb holder in position.
In case you can't find a spare bulb, the manual states "use only a GE259 or equivalent 6.3 volt, wedge base bulb. A clerk at Radio Shack told me she could get a replacement bulb.

press the Cancel button located on the top of the alarm clock (the light next to the wake mode indicator on the front of the clock should start flashing). Then press the WAKE Mode button on the top of the device. The wake mode indicator on the front should now be off and the alarm deactivated.

To turn the alarm back on, simply press the WAKE Mode button on the top of the device.

NO power to the radio or clock


Did you actually check the radio plug for power, or does the display just not illuminate? I ask because this radio has a little bulb inside that burns out that illuminates the clock, and radio station. You can confirm this by trying to use the radio normally, and trying to 'seek' a station. If you can get it to tune in, it is definitely the bulb. Another way is to shine a nice bright flashlight into the clock face. You should be able to see the stations and clock, that at least will tell you that the radio is working. - Hope this helps =)

I'm having a hard time replacing the driver side headlight. Am I overthinking this?


Why are you trying to change the headlight? Is it broken?
If you are trying to change the bulb, because it is burned out, that is done from the rear of the housing. You have to exercise a bit of care getting the old bulb out and putting the new one in, but is it not difficult. If you are removing the right-side (from the driver's position) bulb, remove the battery (make sure you have your radio anti-theft code if you have one of those radios). Reach behind the headlight assembly, grasp the bulb holder retaining collar, turn it counterclockwise, then pull out the bulb/holder assembly. To remove the bulb from the holder, simply pull it straight out of the holder. Reverse procedure to lock the holder into place.
Removing the headlight housing is somewhat more involved. There are five bolts that hold it in place.

How to set time/alarm GE Auto Clock Set Radio Model 7-4892A


What I have found with my alarm clock like this one is that you CANNOT be soft on it. When setting the time, hold down the F or R button extra hard. I know that seems odd, but it works!
