Question about Philips AJ3980 Clock Radio

Open Question

Philips Model AJ3980/37 would only display time, no alarm presets, and no audio. Since there is no reaction to any operation of the buttons, the manual said the problem may be "electrostatic discFixYaharge". Manual said to unplug and wait for 5 minutes, and as the display goes through the demo mode, press any button to exit the demo mode then insert presets. Pressing all of the buttons has no effect on exiting the demo mode. I'm not sure that what is displayed is the demo mode, as the only display is "Philips" scrolling righ to left. Any suggestions as to how to get the unit operational?

SOURCE: Philips HDRW 720/17 stuck in '':demo'' mode???

Okay. I found that there IS a manual release for the disc tray UNDERNEATH the unit. It is a sort of toggle lever that you have to slide to the other side and that releases the disc. The Manual does not even mention this manual release lever!

Also, it may be hidden or covered by a paper like cover.

SOURCE: Philips wake-up light HF3475 clock frozen

I had the same problem, that is how my problems with my beloved Phillips wake-up light started, the clock froze after having it for a little over 1 year..nothing worked so I gave up on it. I had it unplugged it for a few months over the summer.. when I turned it on again and the clock was unfrozen..?! Of course not fix-it solution for you..
But now it has new problems: It acts very strange, turns the light on and off by itself and sometimes gets this very annoying humming/buzzing sound.. which is gone when i "re-boot" it. I am sending it in for repair this week.
I simply can't survive the winter months without it!

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.

How do I set the alarm clock on my wharfedale ne 3120?


Press the INFO button several times until you see "Alarm Status" displayed. I had to press it five times.
Then use SELECT button to choose between ALARM OFF and ALARM ON. If you choose ALARM ON, you can adjust the alarm time by first holding down the SELECT button until the display flashes. The you use the UP and DOWN buttons on either side of SELECT, to adjust the time, the type of alarm (Beep, FM or DAB) and if you choose FM or DAB, you then select the preset. Exit by pressing SELECT a final time.Then the INFO button to exit from setup.
Hope this helps.

Kenneth Cole Reaction watch date set problem


I just dug my watch out after not wearing for a few years and had the same problem. There is an easy way to adust this watch's time and alarm, basically one way to enter both.

1) With the watch in the regular time display mode (doesn't matter if 12 hour or military time), depress and hold the lower left hand button (mode button). After a few seconds the watch appears to shift to alarm mode and it is blinking. This puts you into the mode for adjusting the alarm.

2) If you want to adjust time, date, etc rather than alarm time, after you have done step one, simply press that same lower left button again, and then it will put you into the time mode, but this time the time mode is blinking and you can adjust the various components (seconds, minutes, hours). You can only move minutes, hours, etc forward, no way to move backward. You will start off with the second display blinking, probably skip that unless you need to adjust seconds. Depress the upper right button to shift to the next option (minutes) and you will see the minute display blinking. Adjust the minutes by depressing the lower right button. When finished depress upper right button to move to next option (hours) depress the lower right button to move the minutes/hours/month/date forward as necessary, when you finish just press the lower left button again and it pulls you out of adjust mode and you are back in regular time viewing.

I had to post this because I've had this problem in the past and it killed me. Its kind of intuititve after you get into the adjusting mode by pressing the lower left button- remember, initially it will put you into adjust alarm mode, but press again and you will get into adjust time mode.

How do I reset the radio alarm preset on Timex (T307S) Clock Radio


if the radio alarm is still showing the nonexistent 98.5, you would need to reset the radio alarm. Press and hold button 1 (top left hand side) until the display starts blinking. Then press the preset button for 98.1. It should then display 98.1 on your radio alarm. good luck this is the most difficult set of instructions I've seen yet
