    LONG SHOT - anyone got the latest Radio Controlled Alarm Clock from Aldi ?

    yes I know its a long shot, but has anyone bought the Radio Controled Projection Alarm Clock from Aldi recently.

    I am in need of a new alarm clock and have always had these radio controlled types so was pleased to get the last one in my local Aldi today

    photo of box in next post...

    but it has been opened and has no intructions !!!!

    I have worked everything out except how to set the damn alram times

    if you have one could you either enlighten me about setting the alarm time or scan the instructions for me

    would be very much appreciated

    thanks in advance

    It looks like it has an online support site - might have the instructions on there?

    Hold down the 'Set/Zone' button until the time/date display (or some part … Hold down the 'Set/Zone' button until the time/date display (or some part of it) starts flashing.Assuming it really does work the same as mine, it will go through year, month and day first.Use the +/- keys to adjust whatever's flashing to whatever it should be.Press 'Set/Zone' to advance to the next thing to be set.When the hour is flashing, set the time to +1 hour of 'now' - ie, set it to the time Germany.Minutes will be next, followed by time format (12/24 hr).Then the time zone setting should be flashing.Set it to -1.When it's back to the non-flashing time/date display, the time should be showing +1 of whatever it is here.Press the 'Set/Zone' button so that 'Zone' displays - the time will now be correct for here - ie, -1hr of Germany.When BST starts, press 'Set/Time' so that 'Zone' isn't displaying - the time will then be correct for BST (because it will be +1 of whatever it was showing before).Set 'Zone' on again when BST ends.

    wow thanks - that was good work - however firstly this clock does not have a set/zone button and that routine appears to be to fool the clock to work in the UK

    I need to be able to set the alarm time - I have it set to pick up the radio signal for actual time

    thanks very much for your help
