By Megan Mattingly-Arthur

Even the most feature-loaded CD clock radio can prove useless if it takes a rocket scientist to set the time. RCA's models combine features like CD, CDR and CDRW playing capability with a quick and painless time-setting process that takes just seconds.

Step 1

Press the "Clock Set" button and wait for the time to flash.

Step 2

Press the arrow buttons to advance the digital display to the correct time.

Step 3

Keep an eye on the AM and PM indicator lights on the front of the clock when setting the time.

Step 4

Press the "Clock Set" button once more to save your changes and return the clock to regular timekeeping mode.

Tips & Warnings

  • Press and hold the left or right arrow to cause the numbers to advance more quickly.
