Question about Jensen Interactive AM/FM Talking Dual Alarm Clock - JCR-290 Black
We had a power failure after a few power surges and now I cannot set the clock. The display keeps blinking rapidly. I have removed the batteries, unplugged/replugged in the unit and also hit the reset button to no avail.

Battery back-up operation
* This clock radio is equipped with
a memory holding system that can
be powered with 2 "AA" batteries
(included). The power failure
protection circuit will not operate
unless battery is installed.
* When normal household power
is interrupted, or AC line cord
is unplugged, the batteries will
power the clock radio to keep
track of time and alarm settings
programmed into memory.
* When the battery backup functions,
the digital display will not light,
however, the function of alarm
still occurs during the power
interruption if remaining battery
power is adequate.
* Normal operation will resume after
AC power is restored so you will not
have to reset the time or the alarm
To install batteries:
1* Remove battery compartment door
(located at the bottom of the radio)
by applying thumb pressure to the
tab on battery door and then lift
the door out and off the cabinet
2* Insert 2 AA batteries (included).
3* Replace the compartment door
Replace batteries every year.
Power is fed to the unit even
when it is not functioning. To
cut the power supply off, the
power cable must be unplugged
