Strange fixed display for GE 7-4612B clock radio

The clock cannot be set and only displays what appears to be:

1P:G8

The hook on the `G' isn't there but other than that this is how it looks.

It has worked well for a long time. It has no battery but has worked without it all this time.

Thanks for any ideas or solutions...

My clock just did the same thing. I have had it since the very early 90s. Being only 32, this is the oldest thing I own. Funeral arrangements are currently being made. Rest In Peace little clock. Your time has come. Time of *****, 1P:G8. :(..

I have this same problem with my clock radio, same model #. I have a feeling that this may mean this clock will be on its way to the dumpster very soon.

CRA108: I can not set the time. I hold in the time button down while pushing the hour and/or minute button but nothing happens. The clock actual is displaying a time that is not proper. It currently...

My Coby CRA108 starting doing this after 6 months of use. Although I described the display as 1P:C8 since there is no key to properly display the character (hybrid of a G & C). I've left it unplugged and changed the backup battery with hopes it would reset. No luck so far. Anyone have success???

I have a bose awrc1p radio display light changes

This could be the battery causing the display to act strangely. If the radio still works audio-wise, the following should fix the display: The older model wave radios have either a 9v or 3 AA batteries (accessible from the bottom). Remove any battery, and reset the system by unplugging the power cord for about 40 seconds. Plug it back in without the battery attached. If the problem goes away- replace the battery or batteries. (which is only there to hold the clock time, presets etc when not plugged in) BTW- you'll have to set the clock, alarm, presets etc after this procedure. If the problem doesn't go away, call Bose. I think they can repair this for $99 and/or offer a new one as a trade-in discounted.
