I've had the Aluratek AIRMM01F Internet Clock Radio for almost a year. I've been mostly satisfied. As everyone else has said, the LCD display is BLINDING, but I solved that problem by turning the display off when I go to bed. Yes, I can no longer see the time, but when my favorite NPR station comes on in the morning, I know its time to get up. And I turn the display back on.
Anyway, my problem is two days ago, the display did not turn back on. I thought the menu was frozen (which it sporadically is). But no amount of button pushing would turn it back on. I unplugged it, then plugged it back in. Now the Aluratek logo comes up and I get a blank screen. Nothing else. I tried the Reset button. Nothing.
When I hold the Reset button in and reboot the radio, I get "Recovery Mode V1.0". And...nothing. The status light flashes like its doing something, but nothing for 5-10 minutes. I logged a ticket with tech support, but its the weekend. Any ideas?
