    Help me set an Avon sunrise alarm clock please 26th Mar 11 at 8:17 PM
    My son bought this for me as I mentioned I would like a sunrise alarm clock. He saw it second hand and thought great. It had no instructions and try as I might I can't seem to set the alarm. I can't get the time set and tomorrow the clocks go back. I can't reset it for the clocks. Help please

    According to EID they can be obtained for somewhere between 10 and 20 brand new. Made in China - not very good reviews apparently. Try asking Avon on Monday perhaps?

    BTW clocks go forward tonight.

    Cheers

    Hi, I've got one of these and they're dead easy once you get the hang of it.

    1 - Press and hold the mode button - if it says alarm at the top of the display you're in the alarm function, if it doesn't then you're in the time function.
    2 - Press and hold the set button until the AM/PM starts flashing.
    3 - Toggle with the up down buttons on the right.
    4 - When you're happy press set and then hour will start flashing, use the up/down buttons - press set again and the minutes will flash. Press set after doing the minutes and everything should stop flashing and you're good to go.

    Pressing and holding the button marked alarm will turn the alarm on or off - you'll get a little alarm icon under the am/pm if the alarm is set. Slider on the back lets you set whether you just use alarm, just light or alarm and light.

    I think they're great for the money, (mine was 12 from Avon) but do have limitations. Because of the light, they get through more batteries than a regular alarm clock, so it's worth using rechargables. And because it's battery rather than mains, the light is not enormously bright and I don't think it would be enough to wake you on its own. However, I do find when I use the light with the alarm (It slowly warms up before the alarm goes off) I find I'm already stirring and the alarm just kind of finishes the job, rather than coming as a dreadful shock. It definitely makes it a more gentle wake-up than an alarm on its own.

    I bought one of these in the local thrift shop for 3 with no instructions as keen to try out, experimenting to see if any difference in my sleep wake cycle (I could sleep for England! & nothing medically wrong). Thanks soooo much for your posting.

    Did you manage to figure it out? I still have the instructions they sent me.
