    Ever since I bought my 348 back in February, the clock just blinks "00:00". When I try to push in those tiny little buttons per the manual, guess what...NOTHING HAPPENS. Am I missing something here? I hate to push TOO HARD on the silly control panel. Thoughts?

    husker,

    You may have already done this but you must use a very fine point to change these - right on the centre indentation

    A paper clip is ideal.

    Pushing with fingers will not work.

    If a previous owner pushed the tiny buttins too hard, they may have gotten stuck behind the front panel. The rubbery buttons are actually separate from the switches which are part of a PC board. The only remedy in this case is to remove the entire unit and disassemble it unless you can maneuver the buttons back into position somehow without removing the panel. I removed and disassembled mine and in the process cleaned all the contacts between the multiple layers of PC boards. Both the clock and AC/Heat control unit now work perfectly.
