Getting sylvania scr1986bt-as in standby mode
I think I cracked the code on this inexpensive but potentially infuriating little clock.When you first plug it in, it goes into STANDBY mode (identified by flashing ":" in the time display). In this mode, you set the time, alarms, preset radio stations, etc.
Once these are set, you go into NORMAL mode by pressing the SOURCE button (in the back row). In NORMAL mode, the : in the time display is steady. In different modes, the middle row and front row buttons do different things.
To return to STANDBY, you have to unplug the cord briefly and plug it back in. In STANDBY, the (front row buttons) AL-1 & AL-2 allow you to "cycle through" [buzzer-radio-off ] options for each alarm , and alter the time setting for each alarm (middle buttons). Once set, just wait and it will accept the new setting and display.
In NORMAL, the front row buttons raise or lower the volume of the radio. CAUTION: if you chose the radio setting for an alarm, and set the volume to 0, it will not wake you up! The middle row buttons only do anything when the radio is playing (SOURCE in the back row), when they can be used to tune the radio up and down, or move to preset station. Note that the SOURCE button is also used to select Blutooth sync, indicated by the blinking Bluetooth light on the right side of the display. To stop this from blinking, press SOURCE until AU (for auxiliary) appears and simply wait until it returns to NORMAL display.
Hope that helps.
