Ta Mike.  I've tried your suggestion to no avail.  Oh well.  On another list 
you recently mentioned a case you used for your book courier.  Could you please 
email me privately at
with details, in particular the product code if you have it?

Cheers now.

  Hi Ian,

  Yes, I have; I think it's probably switch wear; try shaking it about a bit 
  or lightly hitting it. Very unscientific I'm afraid, but it works for me. 
  Mine is 1981 vintage and still working; the batteries last for ages!

  Hi all,

  Bit of a long shot this one.  I have one of the lovely old Sharp CT 660E 
  talking clocks.  When the voice is turned on via the volume control, the 
  first time it's activated by the little button on the top it announces the 
  time.  Then it announces the alarm time repeatedly.  This happens whether 
  the selector is set to off or in any other position.  I've tried removing 
  and re-inserting the batteries to see if that would cure it but it hasn't. 
  Has anyone else experienced this and been able to cure it or is it time to 
  chuck the old faithful gadget in the bin?

  Cheers now.
