Timex T736 Manufacturer Defect. PLEASE READ!!!
, October 14, 2011
This review is from: Timex T736S Dual Alarm Clock Radio with Time Projector and Jumbo Display (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
I just received mine yesterday. It seemed to work fine, however...this morning the alarm did NOT go off. Rather, the alarm DID go off, I had it set to buzzer but simply was unable to hear it. Here is why:
The display dimmer control switch ALSO controls the volume of the Buzzer Alarm mode. This obviously wasn't intended during manufacture. The Low setting of the dimmer control makes the Buzzer Alarm BARELY audible, so faint that you have to put your ear very close to the unit to even hear it, and the High setting of the dimmer control seems to be the "normal" volume that should wake most individuals. I am currently in contact with Timex awaiting a response as to what exactly they intend to do about this major manufacturing boo boo. Can you say...recall?
