Customer questions and answers for Roberts Solar DAB/FM Solar Powered Radio - Red.

Question
Can I read the clock when on Standby and in the dark?
Is it possible to read the clock when the radio is left on standby in the dark (at night)? I have just bought a Pure, Mini only to realize that it has an LCD display that you can't read at night unless you turn the radio on - bit daft, really.

Hi,

Thanks for using Argos Q&A.

I have investigated this matter for you and can confirm that the manufacturers (Roberts) state that:

- When using the radio powered from batteries, the display backlight
will be switched on for approximately 12 seconds when any button is
pressed.

- When the radio is powered by the AC mains using the supplied mains
adaptor the display backlight will always be on whenever the radio is
switched on.

I hope that this answers your question.

Regards,

Thank you for your question regarding the Roberts Solar DAB/FM Solar Powered Radio - White.

I am sorry but I can confirm that this device can not play MP3 files via USB. MP3 playback would require a separate player plugged in via an aux cable.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.
