Z213B Clock Radio

We can't figure out how to reset the "set" radio station buttons. A power failure wiped out our settings, and the radio alarm requires a set station.

    I am trying to set my preset radio stations and no logical buttons on top to do this... any suggestions from anyone?  Zenith isn't supporting this product anymore that I know of.




    Thanks!

    Zenith Z213 Digital Stereo Clock Radio with TV, Weather Band and Remote Control



    Preset Station Memories

    Note: To change the display from clock to radio frequency, press the Display button.



    This radio has a total of 37 preset station memories: 10 AM, 10 FM, 10 TV, and 7 Weather band that can be used to store you favorite stations for immediate recall. To enter stations in the memories, proceed as follows:




    1. Tune to the first station you wish to memorize.

    2. While the station frequency appears on the display (example: FM 98.7 MHz), press the Memo Set button once. The PRESET indictor flashes in the display.

    3. While the PRESET indicator is flashing, press one of the Preset buttons on the control panel (example 1). 1 appears in the display.

    4. Press the Memo Set button again to enter the station in preset memory 1.

    5. After 5 seconds, the display changes from radio frequency to clock time, but the preset memory number remains in the display.



    To preset additional stations, repeat steps 1thru 4 selecting a different preset number each time. To select preset numbers 1 thru 5, simple press the appropriate button. To select preset numbers 6 thru 10, press the +5 button first and then press 1 thru 5 buttons. For example, to select preset number 6, press +5 and then press 1.



    After you have preset up to 10 stations on one band, you may select another band and preset up to 10 stations on that band in the same manner. You may preset a total of 37 stations, but no more than 10 per band and 7 for Weather.



    Recalling Preset Station


    1. Turn the radio ‘On’ and select the desired band.

    2. Press one of the preset buttons on the control panel to select the desired station. To select presets 6 thru 10, press the +5 button first and then press one of the Preset buttons.



    You may also select presets by pressing Preset Up button on the remote handset. Each press advances the tuner to the next preset.



    Changing Preset Stations

    To change a preset station, simply enter a new station into the preset number you wish to change. The new station will be “remembered” and the previous station will be “forgotten”.

I had the same problem - alarm going off at midnight. Hold down the Menu and Select buttons at the same time to reset the radio. This removes the alarm. It will rescan and find all digital stations again but you will lose any presets.

Alarm settings can be made with clock/radio on or off.
The Alarm Clock/Radio is equipped with two independent alarm

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 :)

How do i set my alarm and when do i know it is on or off....keeps coming on and i dont know how to shut off the alarm...thank you


This clock radio features a dual alarm system, with two separate alarms that can be operated independently. The alarms can be set to wake two people at different times, or to have a main alarm and a backup. One alarm features your choice of radio stations as an alarm wake sound, while the second features a buzzer wake sound. You can set the radio alarm, the buzzer alarm, or both alarms.
Setting Radio Alarm
1. Press the "Alarm Set" Button. The display will flash and the Radio Alarm Indicator will appear. If you do not begin setting the time within ten seconds of pressing the it, the display will stop flashing andd you will need to press the "alarm Set Button again. 2. While the display flashes, press the "Tuning/Set" Buttons to set the wake time. Hold a button for a few seconds to advance the time rapidly. Be sure to set the correct AM/PM time, as shown by the PM Indicator. 3. After setting the radio alarm time, you will need to select the station to wake up to. First, press the "AM/FM" Button to select a radio frequency. Next, select a station using the "Radio Preset Buttons". Rotate the Volume Thumbwheel to set a wake sound volume level. 4. After setting the radio alarm wake time and sound, you will need to select your 7-5-2 setting. The 7-5-2 setting lets you set the alarm for a full week, weekdays only, or the weekend. Before setting the alarm, be sure that the correct date is set. 5. After you have set the radio alarm wake time, wake sound, and 7-5-2 setting, press the "Alarm Set" Button twice so that the display shows the standard, non-flashing display.
Setting Buzzer Alarm
1. Press the "Alarm Set" Button twice. The display will flash and the Buzzer Alarm Indicator will appear. 2. While the display flashes, press the "Tuning/Set" Buttons to set the wake time, as described above. 3. After setting the buzzer wake time, use the "Date/7-5-2" Button to select the buzzer. 4. After you have set the buzzer wake time and 7-5-2 setting, press the "Alarm Set" Button once so that the display shows the standard, non- flashing display.
Activating the Alarms
1. To activate the radio alarm, press the "Radio Alarm" Button so that the Radio Alarm Indicator appears on the display. As long as this indicator appears, the alarm will sound at the set time and days. 2. To activate the buzzer alarm, press the "Buzzer Alarm" Button so that the Buzzer Alarm Indicator appears on the display. As long as this indicator appears, the alarm will sound at the set time and days. 3. When the alarm sounds, press the " Off/Reset" Button to turn off the alarm while still maintaining the programmed 7-5-2 alarm settings. To turn off an alarm and cancel its 7-5-2 settings, press its "Alarm Button" so that its Alarm Indicator no longer appears on the display. 4. To activate the snooze feature, press the "Snooze/Night-Light" Bar when the alarm sounds. The alarm will shut off for approximately nine minutes before sounding again. The feature can be repeated several times during the one-hour snooze cycle. 5. If it is not turned off, the alarm will sound for an hour before stopping. As long as an Alarm Indicator appears on the display, the alarm will sound at the set time, according to the 7-5-2 settings.

I need a manual for the Timex T229B clock radio. I can't even figure out how to turn off the alarm. Please tell me how I can find one - preferably free. Thanks, Patty.


I can't find the Timex T229B on the Timex support site. However, the T228B may be similar. To turn off the alarm completely, there is a switch on the left side that must be set to Off. The switch is labeled Alarm on one side and Radio on the other. In between are 4 positions - from front to back, Radio, Buzz, Off and On. When in the Off position the alarm indicator symbol will not be lit at the top left of the display (it looks a bit like a bell). The dimmer switch is in front of this Alarm/Radio switch on this side of the clock.

To turn off the alarm and reset it for the next day, press the Alarm Set/Reset button to the right of the hour and minute buttons. The Snooze button is the large button to the left of the hour and minute buttons.

Timex alarm clock and clock radio manuals are available here: http://www.timexaudio.com/product_manuals.asp .

I hope this helps.

Setting Radio Stations for T307S


the power button is on the right hand side, top button in the row. It is engraved with POWER and underneath it says SLEEP. You might need to hold it in for a second or two. If this does not turn on the radio, it sounds like your unit is defective.
