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.

This did not work for me. The alarm won't go off at all. The dial for the clock seems very loose - it stuck many times when I was turning the dial to change the time, and then it just got loose, and now the alarm won't go off. Please help!

After several unsuccessful attempts to locate a user manual for this clock radio, I discovered for myself how to set the time and the alarm for this model by trial & error. Hope this
tip helps others!
Press the MODE
button located on the top of the clock. The screen blinks the hour with "AL
HOUR?" specified. Press the SELECT button to go forward or the PRESET button to
go backward. Press the MODE button again to set the "AL
MINUTE?" Subsequent presses of the Mode button scrolls through AL BUZZER,
AL VOLUME, HOUR, MINUTE, DUAL HOUR, 12/24 HR, YEAR, MONTH, DATE, temp F or C, AREA
features. It seems that the clock saves the last setting you made once you stop pressing any buttons.
1.set time: hold down "clock" button for five seconds, then use up and down arrows to change, and press "clock" button once to toggle between month/day/year/hour/minute. Try it a few times b/c sometimes it just goes to the alarm setting (i don't know why, i think it's a glitch).
2.set alarm: hold down "alarm" button for 5 seconds, use up and down arrows to change, press "alarm" button once to toggle between hour/minute. press "clock" button to return to clock
3.turn on/off alarm: press "alarm" button once, press up to turn alarm on and press up again to turn alarm off. press "clock" button to return to clock
4.to project the images: push the buttons that look like video cameras. to focus the image, rotate the cylinder around the lens that projects the image. on the daisy clock, there's a button on top that you can use to flip the projected image of the time upside down. use the dial next to the lens-cylinders to select a different image (you may need to point the cylinders in a different direction to reach the dial)
1) set time: hold down "time set" button for five seconds, then use up and down arrows to change, and press "time set" button once to toggle between month/day/year/hour/minute. If it goes to the alarm setting instead of time setting, try again. 2) set alarm: hold down "alarm set" button for 5 seconds, use up and down arrows to change, press "alarm set" button once to toggle between hour/minute. press "time set" button to return to clock 3) turn on/off alarm: press "alarm set" button once, press "up" to turn alarm on and press "up" again to turn alarm off. press "time set" button to return to clock 4) to project the images: push the buttons that read "time" or "image". to focus the image, rotate the cylinder around the lens that projects the image. use the dial near the lens-cylinders to select a different image 5) military time: press the "up" button when the time is displayed (not when you're setting the time) Good Luck!
I can't upload a manual but I can give you instructions: 1) set time: hold down "time set" button for five seconds, then use up and down arrows to change, and press "time set" button once to toggle between m/d/y/hour/minute. If it goes to the alarm setting instead of time setting, try again. 2) set alarm: hold down "alarm set" button for 5 seconds, use up and down arrows to change, press "alarm set" button once to toggle between hour/minute. press "time set" button to return to clock
3) turn on/off alarm: press "alarm set" button once, press "up" to turn alarm on and press "up" again to turn alarm off. press "time set" button to return to clock
4) to project the images: push the buttons that read "time" or "image". to focus the image, rotate the cylinder around the lens that projects the image. use the dial under the lens-cylinders to select a different image
5) military time: press the "up" button when the time is displayed (not when you're setting the time) to change from 12 to 24 hr or vise-versa
To turn off the alarm I pressed the alarm set button. While in the alarm set mode press the up button to turn the alarm and snooze off and on. That's what worked for us. Neat clock, the instructions are just a little lacking:)
Travel alarm clocks can have varying
instructions, depending on the type of clock you are using. Here are
some tips for use that will apply to any alarm clock.
Travel alarm clocks will need to
have some sort of power source. Depending on the type of alarm clock,
it might be battery-powered or it might have a cord that needs to be
plugged in. Battery-powered alarm clocks can take mini watch batteries,
AAA batteries or sometimes AA batteries. Travel alarm clocks, because of
their tiny size, usually have the small batteries that need to be
bought from a watch store or a dollar store. Before you leave, make sure
you have a working power source and can turn it on.
Changing the time
After you reach your final
destination, power the alarm clock on. Now you'll need to set the time
and date correctly. Check a watch, cell phone or television to get the
exact time and locate the buttons or dials on your alarm clock. On some,
there will be a "time" or an "hour" button you need to press and hold
to activate the alarm time change. While you are holding it down, turn
the dial, press the hour button or press the (+) button until you notice
a time change. On others, simply pressing the hour or minute button
will let you change the time shown.
The AM/PM option is critical in
setting your alarm clock correctly. Make sure the LCD display on your
clock has a light beside the correct AM or PM setting, or look for the
letters AM or PM on the display. If you get this wrong, the alarm won't
go off in the morning!
Setting alarm time
To set the alarm time, look for a
button or a switch that says alarm. If there is a switch, move it to
the alarm setting. If it is a button, you'll need to hold it down until
the time starts flashing, signaling time to change the hours and minutes
to the desired alarm time, or hold it down while you press the hours
and minutes buttons to reach the alarm time you want.
Turn alarm on
Now double-check that your
regular and alarm times are correct by switching the switch back and
forth again, or by pressing the alarm/time buttons long enough to read
the time set. There should be a picture of a bell somewhere on your LCD
display showing that the alarm is set to "on." If there isn't, look for
the on/off alarm button and move it to the correct position.
The last step is finding the
alarm wake-up option. Not all travel alarm clocks have this option, but
if yours does there will be a switch or button that lets you choose to
wake up by a buzzer, the radio, a CD, or another device.
To turn off alarm1 press button named "up" and for alarm 2 press button "down"
Note: No need to press mode or set anything you just need to press the above specified buttons directly when it is normally displaying the time
AHAH! I had this problem also, so i tried google and it led me here. Luckily, I kept trying and figured it out so I will share my knowledge with you although you may have found it out already...
First, make sure the radio and ipod are off and it's in clock display mode.
Then, click and hold "alm set" while clicking the left "timer set" arrow to set the hour of your alarm and the right "timer set" arrow to set minutes for your alarm.
Then click "alm on/off" to turn it on and off.
JUST HOLD THE NAP BUTTON UNTIL IT NO LONGER IS BLINKING NAP, dont return it, its very good at waking you up in the morning, and is basically a good alarm clock, it just has a different way of turning nap off.
