Wanted: Operating instructions for Radioshack 12-1926 or similar

Mike
I have this Radioshack/Realistic 1988 12-1926 radio/tapeplayer installed in a camping trailer (convenient because of front/back speakers). Don't have an op manual, i.e.  to set clock, save stations etc. The model is probably very similar to models 12-1920/-1940. Anyone have access to a manual or reference thereto ?....the RS Manual Archive seems inoperative of course. Picture is attached.

12-1940 Realistic AM/FM Stereo Car Cassette Player

Operation

Before you use the stereo, turn the VOLUME control all the way to the
left.  Then, turn the ignition switch to ON or ACC.

Understanding the Display

When you turn on the ignition, the display shows the time.

The radio frequency appears for about 5 seconds when you:

  Press (FREQ).

  Tune a station automatically or manually.

  Press [AM/FM].

  Store station in memory.

  Press a channel button.

Setting the Time

Follow these steps to set the time.

1.  Turn the ignition switch to the ON or ACC (accessory) position.

2.  Press [RADIO] to turn on the radio.

3.  Press and hold down [FREQ].  Then, press [TUNE +] to set the minutes.

4.  Continue holding down [FREQ] and press [-TUNE] to set the hours.

Playing a Cassette

Follow these steps to play a cassette.

1.  Load a cassette with the open side facing right.  Push the cassette
    until it locks into position.  The power automatically turns on.

2.  If you want to play a metal tape, press [MTL] to set the correct tape
    equalization.  MTL appears on the display.

3.  Adjust the [VOL], [BASS], and [TREBLE] controls as desired.

4.  Press and turn the [BAL] control to balance the sound between the left
    and right speakers.  If you connected four speakers, turn the [FADER]
    control to adjust the sound between front and rear speakers.  
    Otherwise, turn the [FADER] control all the way to the right.

5.  If you want to fast-forward the tape, press in [FF/EJ] half way during
    playback.

6.  Press in [FF/EJ] all the way to stop tape playback and eject the
    cassette.

Using the Radio

If you loaded a cassette, you must eject the cassette before you use the
radio.

1.  Press [RADIO] to turn on the radio.

2.  Press [AM/FM] to select the desired radio band.  The selected band
    indicator (A1, A2, F1, F2 or F3) appears on the display.

3.  Press [- TUNE +] to move down or up in the selected band.  In the AM
    band, radio frequencies are displayed in 200 kHz steps.  The stereo
    indicator (ST ) lights when you tune to a strong FM stereo station.

4.  Press and release [- SEEK +] to tune to the next lower or higher
    station.

5.  Adjust the [VOL], [BASS], [TREBLE], [BAL] and [FADER] controls as
    desired.

6.  If your listening area has several radio stations, press [LOC].  LOC
    appears on the display and your radio receives only the strongest
    signals.

    To receive distant stations in rural areas, press [LOC] so that LOC
    disappears.

Storing a Radio Frequency

You can store a total of 30 radio frequencies - 12 AM and 18 FM - in your
stereo's memory for instant tuning.  Each band (A1, A2, F1, F2, and F3)
can hold up to six frequencies.

1.  Turn on the radio.  Then, press [AM/FM} for the desired band.

2.  Tune to the desired station.

3.  Press and hold down any of the channel buttons (1-6) until the stereo
    beeps.  CH and the channel number appear on the display.

4.  Repeat Steps 2 and 3 to store up to six frequencies in the selected
    band.  Then, press [AM/FM] to change bands and follow the same
    procedure to store up to six more frequencies.

Note: You can use each channel button (1-6) only once to store a frequency
      in the selected band.

Storing Multiple Frequencies with AMS

Your stereo's automatic memory system (AMS) lets you store six frequencies
of a selected band at one time.

1.  Turn on the radio.

2.  Press [AM/FM] to select the desired band.

3.  Press and hold down {AMS/MS] until the stereo beeps.  From the
    currently tuned station, the AMS searches for the next six strong
    stations in the selected band and stores the station's frequencies.

4.  To store six frequencies of another band, press [AM/FM] to select
    another band.  Then, repeat Step 3.

Tuning to a Stored Frequency

Turn on the radio.  Then, press [AM/FM] to display the desired band. Press
the number button (1-6) that contains the desired frequency. The frequency
appears on the display.  To return to the clock display, press [FREQ].

Scanning the Stored Frequencies

Use the [MS] (memory scan) button to scan all stored frequencies until you
find the one you want to listen to.

1.  Turn on the radio.  Then, press [AM/FM] for the desired band.

2.  Press [MS] to scan through all the programmed stations in the selected
    band.  Scanning stops at each frequency for about 5 second, the
    frequency appears, and CH flashes on the display.

3.  While the frequency is displayed, press [MS] again to stop scanning.

Connecting a Compact Disc Player

You can connect a portable CD player to your stereo using a stereo patch
cord with a 1/8-inch stereo plug at both ends (available at your local
RadioShack store).  Connect your CD player's headphone jack to the CD
input jack on the front of your stereo.

Note:  When you connect a portable CD player, the radio and cassette
       player are automatically disconnected.

12- 1926 is not listed, but this link might help as well.  No manual for many.
