I received this stereo from my friend and I can not figure out how to set the clock or the preset stations. I tried to download a manual, however I do not want to pay $15 to answer these two questions. Please help.

Setting the Clock
1. Press and hold the CLOCK button until the hour begins to flash
2. Use the left arrow and right arrow buttons to change the hour.
3. Press the CLOCK button again. Use the left arrow and right arrow buttons
to change the minutes.
4. Press the CLOCK button again to save.
the PRESET stations:
1. Tune to desired station.
2. Press and hold the PRESET button until the PRE-SET indicator on the display begins to flash
3. Use the left arrow and right arrow buttons to select the PRESET location for the station. Ten locations (0-9) are available.
4. Press the PRESET button to save the location. To tune a PRESET station:
Press and release the PRESET button to step
through the PRESET stations.
When you find a frequency that you want to store in memory, press one of pre- set tuning buttons 1through 6 and hold until the preset number stops flashing. The number you have pressed will flash in the preset number indicator and then remain lit. The selected radio station frequency has been stored in memory. The next time you press the same preset tun- ing button the radio station frequency is re- called from memory.
Car stereos typically have an "ignition" and a "battery" wire. The ignition wire is connected to your ignition switch, and only supplies power to the stereo when the car is turned on. The battery wire is connected directly to the battery, and always supplies electricity to the stereo -- even when the car is off. This maintains presets, clock, and other settings in your stereo.
It sounds like your battery wire was either not hooked up, or has come loose. On your stereo, a Pioneer, this wire is yellow. Locate the yellow wire on the wiring harness on the back of your stereo. This wire should be connected directly to your battery (or another source that gets constant +12VDC).
The reason you are loosing all of your presets, clock & eq settings is because the 12volt constant is not hooked up properly. The red wire in the harness needs to be hooked up to 12 volt consant. The yellow wire needs to be hooked up to a ignition source. By taking these two steps, you should have normal operation and preset retention.
when u get it to the radio station u like.... on ur cd player u should have buttons 1-6 or somethin close.... when ur at the station u want to be preset... pick a number 1-6 and hold that number in for about 5 seconds... it should notify u some how... it should preset itself when u do this
The radio was improperly installed; there are two 12V leads, one services the radio when on, the other, only the circuitry for the clock and presets.
Eventually, this shouldn't be needed if the manufacturers ever think about using a little bit of flash memory for the presets and a coin cell for the clock.
You didn't give any model number so researching the manual is impossible.
If you can find the model number, look for a user's (or installation) guide on line to find the wiring info.
I HAVE FIGURED IT OUT..
You have to hold the audio button in the top right corner till the time blinks, then use the arrows to set the time and then hold the audio button again when finnished.. AND YOUR DONE!!! It makes no sense why you wouldnt have to hold the clock button like most any other radio is BEYOND ME... screw all this hidden stuff..
