    I am having the same problem. Radio has been working fine for at least a couple of years. Batteries died and I removed them for a day or so to recharge them. When replaced, nothing happens. Screen is blank and buttons do nothing. I also tried powering with an AC adapter. I also pressed the reset button. Still nothing.

This just happened to me. I unscrewed the back (8 screws, each under a rubber pad on the back of the unit) and removed the back cover. I used a jewe;er's Phillips head screwdriver.

You will notice that when you remove the cover, the round watch battery that preserves the memory comes loose. Be sure to remove it so you can reinstall it after you replace the cover.

I didn't really do much except look around.

I pressed the reset button a few times.

I replaced the cover but not the screws. I then replaced the batteries and it worked. I cannot explain why, but it does.

Try this and see if it works for you, too!

Front panel turns off

Have you performed a FULL reset on the TS-2000?
To perform a full reset:

With the power off press and hold down the A=B button and with the other hand turn on the TS-2000.
After that you will have to press the A=B one more time. The radio will reset itself,
and the display will show 14.000 MHz in the main band, and 144.000 MHz in the sub band.

Please let me know if it worked for you.

2000 mustang convertable amp problems

Are you sure the amplifiers are trashed? Have you checked the fuses? A reputable car audio shop could help for a fee of course, but it may be worth the price. It's odd that (all) the amps would malfuntion simultaniously unless someone unqualified messed with the wiring or the radio has a defective trigger wire (turns the amps on). You'll be sadly disapointed with any new radio without the factory amps, especially with the convertable ... I strongly suggest getting the amps (the factory system) working again.

Lost the directions to my SI Shower Companion

Do not turn the radio on. Then depress the "mode" button and yo will see all the questions, including time, date, etc. to respond to. Either channel + or - or Tuning + or - (I don;t recall which), will get you the numbers you need, pressing "mode" again will get you to the next module or out entirely.

Do you get a power light when its plugged in? If not its likely the power adapter is bad and thats why it doesn't work on battery...never got charged.

Cant get it to power up

I had exactly the same problem. Here is how I resolved it. 1. There is a reset button inside the battery compartment, in the center, between the C cells. Try pushing it with a paper clip or similar item. 2. If that doesn't work, replace the C cells. 3. If that doesn't work, try replacing the lithium backup battery. It is located between the C cells, in a compartment with an arrow. 4. I finally did all three at the same time, replacing the C cells, lithium battery, and resetting the system. The radio has worked fine for two days now. Good luck.

Emerson IC200BK smartset iPod radio - buttons seem to be stuck

You can try taking the battery out and let the microprocessor discharge it charge and unlatch the switch controls function. This should take about a hour to be safe. To do this take the plug about from the wall also. The battery may be bad and need replacing. You can test the battery by putting it back in after you test the radio and clock with the a/c plug only. After the radio and clock return to normal operation. Put the battery back in and see if it work properly and all the function work. If you are still having problems replace the battery. If this does not fix the problem, you will have to call Emerson customer support at this telephone number 1-800-898-9020. Give them the model number of you clock radio and tell them the problem you are having with the failure of the front panel buttons. They will be able to tell you if there is a fix or if you have to send it in for repair. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

Proton Model RS-420 clock radio lost power back-up

The battery is located on the display circuit board at the front of the unit. It's a bit of a pain to get to.

You'll need to open the case, unplugging the wiring harness plugs so you can take the two halves apart. Next, remove the strip of circuit board at the top where the snooze/alarm and other top button switches are. Then you will be able to get to all of the screws holding the display circuit board to the front of the case. The battery is soldered to the board. I'm not sure what type or voltage it is, but it's probably a single-cell NiCd at 1.2v. I think the best replacement would be a supercapacitor but I need to figure out exactly what the battery is first.

It's a great radio that's worth fixing. If anyone can tell us what the battery is, please post! Mine says "860" on it.

Cheers,

- Phil
