I can't set the time on a Sony Dream Machine

The instruction manual was lost - I figured out how to change the time on this clock with the hidden button at the base of the clock but I can't get the times to stick.  All help is appreciated! Lou

Thanks so much, Larry - you

Thanks so much, Larry - you're awesome......from what I've read, I can only figure the dream machine is not so dreamy .......... trust me, from what I've read, I've been setting the machine correctly.  I guess it's back to the manufacturer!  Thanks again, Lou

If you cannot set the unit,

If you cannot set the unit, you probably have a bad keypad or a broken connection going to it.  Very common problem.

Hi Larry,

Hi Larry,

I have a Sony Dream Machine ICF-218 and bought it specifically because I need the battery back-up for work. Recently the power went out and I noticed the display was off. Replaced the battery but when I unplug it, the display disappears again. It's not in backwards, seems battery related, everything else is ok...don't know what else to check! Nothing in the manual I can see.
I'd appreciate any ideas, Thanks.

Linda

I bought the Sony Dream

I bought the Sony Dream Machine for my daughter and paid nearly $180 for it from Myers. It stopped working in less than a year. The volume turns up to 20 (full) automatically and the times cannot be set. The buttons do not respond when pressed. I changed the battery and followed the instructions, but it still does not work. Very disappointed! (and yes, I can read)

Hold down the clock button

Hold down the clock button until the hour block digital clock display begins to flash. Next use the up-down button to set the hour desired.Then hit the clock button to activate the next routine which is the minutes.Set the minutes to the desired minute with the up-down button. Once the hour and minutes are set you can advance the function to AM-PM. I never heard a beep when I held down the clock button to start off with.the "clock" button is the key...just watch what flashes as you scroll through the functions with that clock" button. Once you activate a desired block...just use the up-down button to set your time. Good luck.....Buena suerte amigos...
