chriscomc :

Hello, thanks for your question. If you have not tried this in your manual on page 4 it lists how to shut off your sleep timer as well as the settings.

chriscomc :

Turn the radio on with the POWER button, in the front, upper right corner of

the radio. A quick short press to turn on the sleep timer, and the sleep timer

symbol appears in the upper left corner of the display. To select a different

time, rotate the tuning knobs to select 120, 90, 75, 60, 45, 30, 15, 10, 05,


To defeat the sleep timer, simply rotate the tuning knob until “ON” appears

in the display.

It’s normal for the display to become lit for a few seconds every time that a

button is pressed.

chriscomc :

you will need to tap the power button to get to sleep timer and then rotate the nob until you get to the ON setting as directed

chriscomc :

Also if you need the manual you can find it here

chriscomc :

Hope this helps


Thank you! I might have figured this out after a lot of pushing buttons, but the manual is less than clear about what wheel to turn - and the fact that "ON" means that it turns the sleep mode off. Now my elderly mother can enjoy her radio once again when she can't sleep!
