this case the appliance is reset to the factory default settings. Check the
alarm settings (see chapter 'Using the appliance').
Perhaps the light intensity level you have set is not appropriate for you.
Try a lower light intensity level if you wake up too early or a higher
light intensity level if you wake up too late. If light intensity level 20 is
not high enough, move the appliance closer to the bed.

height at which the light is not blocked by your bed, duvet or pillow.
Also make sure the appliance is not placed too far away.
Perhaps there has been a power failure. It is normal for the lamp to
flash after a power failure.
Perhaps the appliance is not suitable for the voltage to which it is
connected. Make sure that the voltage indicated on the appliance
corresponds to the local mains voltage.
