Question about Vector VEC438 AM/FM/Weather Radio

1 Answer

Not keeping time and date in memory

I have programmed this radio 20 times. As soon as I turn off the power for more than 2 seconds, the time and date memory is cleared. The S.A.M.E. codes stay in though. I have read the instructions and surely am pressing the memory button---also the battery is fully charged (or so i think).....what to do what to do???

The alarm display in the lower right corner on model #RC40-A keeps blinking and will not stop. This happens with both wake 1 and wake 2 options. I fixed it once by unplugging the unit but it this did not...


Hello
Just reinstall the battries and adjust the time once again.

Battery back-up operation

* This clock radio is equipped with

a memory holding system that can

be powered with 2 "AA" batteries

(included). The power failure

protection circuit will not operate

unless battery is installed.

* When normal household power

is interrupted, or AC line cord

is unplugged, the batteries will

power the clock radio to keep

track of time and alarm settings

programmed into memory.

* When the battery backup functions,

the digital display will not light,

however, the function of alarm

still occurs during the power

interruption if remaining battery

power is adequate.

* Normal operation will resume after

AC power is restored so you will not
have to reset the time or the alarm

To install batteries:

1* Remove battery compartment door

(located at the bottom of the radio)

by applying thumb pressure to the

tab on battery door and then lift
the door out and off the cabinet

2* Insert 2 AA batteries (included).
3* Replace the compartment door

Replace batteries every year.

Power is fed to the unit even

when it is not functioning. To

cut the power supply off, the
power cable must be unplugged
OK.

Display for radio stuck in '7 SAFE' mode


This sounds like a Phillips Car Stereo:

To get the code in:
1. Turn the stereo off.
2. Turn off the ignition
3. Turn the ignition back on (dash warning lights on)
4. Hold and keep down the AS button on the stereo.
5. Turn the stereo on.
6. Release the AS button after 4 dashes appear on the display
7. Now enter code (if code = 7009. Press preset button 1 seven times, button
2 once
3 once
4 nine times
If you go past you can go round again by pressing the
preset button repeatedly
8. Once all 4 numbers are correct hold down AS again until you hear a beep (2 - 5 seconds)
9. The stereo after beeping will scan to program channels
You have 10 attempts to get the code in. However some models will not give you the number of attempts remaining!

Time delays work as follows:

Attempt 1. 10 seconds
Attemp 2. 30 seconds.
Attempt 3. 10 minutes.
Attempt 4. 20 minutes
Attempt 5. 40 minutes
Attempt 6. 80 minutes
Attempt 7 160 minutes
Attempt 8 320 minutes
Attempt 9. 640 minutes (yes that is 10 hours 40 minutes!!)

Vitally important thing to remember, the countdown timer works only when the radio is switched on. ANY interruption in the power will reset the timer!

So, be prepared for a VERY long wait to be able to enter the code!
Oh, and if it has reached 10 attempts, then it needs a dealer unlock.
