Question about RCA RCD123 Cassette/CD Boombox
So I was listening to the radio the other day no problem, but then suddenly all of the higher frequencies including the station I was listening to only submit a high-pitched annoying squeal rather than whatever is supposed to be on the station. Any solutions or ideas as to what could have happened or is it time I resign myself to having to get a new radio?

I have the same problem. Mine seems to deal with the brightness of the screen. I turned down the brightness and it got better. It still makes the noise and I am going to take it in to see if it can be fixed. I just don't want to do with out my TV - Isn't that horrible.

Possible solution for some of the problems listed: Turn the clock upside down so that the label is readable in the upper left area. On the right side you will find a compartment which may have two "AA" batteries installed. These back up the setting when the clock is unplugged.
To reset the clock, you will have to BOTH remove the batteries AND unplug the AC power cord. Also, make sure the batteries are not dead.
Finally, although I cannot confirm this, there is an opening directly under the label (still looking at the bottom of the clock) which appears to be a "Reset" switch. A pointed object such as a ballpoint pen or toothpick will be needed to press this recessed button. Hope this helps. Mine is working just fine.

The power supply is starting to fail. There are a number of capacitors in the power supply that need to be replaced. A local repair shop should be able to fix this easily. Figure on $10 max for parts.
