Buttons not reacting even after change of the battery

The display was there but the buttons were not working. I have unplugged, changed the battery but still nothing. It shows 1. 1. then 2103, then 0:00 and remains blinking. The buttons do not react.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Did you manage to work this out its happening to me??


Had one with this problem just 15min after unpack.

Replaced, and the new one has same problems randomly once 1 or 2 months but removing battery and AC normally solves the problem.


a complete scandal to sony leaving a defective product to be sold and its authorizeds say that they can not do anything, that they laminate. i thinking quality sony be placed in the trash.


It worked ok during 6/7 months and all of a sudden the projector didn't work nor any button. After replacing the backup battery the unit keeps having the 0:00 time flashing for ever. I have tried multiple buttons sequence but didn't find the right combination yet. If a genius could help, I nearly convince that this is a software problem not a hardware fault. ANY IDEA ???

had the same... we returned to the shop and the shop owner gave us a new one... with the same problem again. so the shop owner opened all the boxes of the brand new delivery he just had received... showing that half of the clocks showed the same behaviour. obviously there is a failure in the transformator set, that only a part of the clocks works, a good share of the products do not get sufficient voltage... seems to be a problems of low workmanship quality ... now the product works fine

Someone on the Sony forum found the solution:

1- Remove the battery and unplug from the power source

2- leave the radio without battery and power for a minute or two

3- while pressing the ALARM RESET button conect to the power souce but do not install the battery

4- keep pressing the ALARM RESET button for another minute after pluging to the power outlet

5- Release the button, wait 5 seconds then set the radio according to your preference

6- after you are done setting the radio, re-install the battery

7- (Optional) if step # 3 doesnt work, press ALARM RESET and SLEEP buttons at the same time (you will see all the LED's turning on in the screen, and wont turn off until you remove the power source), unplug the radio, then proced to step #3

you should be good to go if you follow these steps.

Here's the link to it:
