How do I disable the speaker/alarm on a Philips 3500 Wake-up Light?

The worst "feature" of this wake-up light is the inability to turn off the alarm and just use the device as a wake-up light. There doesn't seem to be any videos online that provide clear instructions on how to disable the alarm. One forum suggested drilling a hole through the piezo speaker - if you can find it and avoid damaging the circuit board, which I think I might do.

Is there a better way to go about doing this?

I ended up just stabbing the center hole and the surrounding 6 holes with the iFixIt screwdriver. It popped the piezo speaker and disabled it with minimal work.


Kevin Kramer for as long as it worked for you ;-)


Kevin you're a genius my good sir :)

Did as you, only had a leather needle handy, but it did the job.


I appreciate Kevin Kramer's suggestion since I watched a few videos that didn't explain the 6 hole approach! I futzed about with a paperclip, but what finally really helped me get the leverage I needed to push out the speaker was a regular ol' thumbtack. I *think* I've gotten it out, it's been quiet during the last three tests even though as I watch it I can hear the phantom beeping (my gosh, that's an annoying sound!). Thank you for posting this.

Kevin Kramer check on here. Royal PITA but possible. Use an old credit card instead of a screw driver to open it up. Unsolder the speaker or develop a turn off circuit ;-)

I just used a long needle to poke the speaker through the grill until it didn't work/couldn't make a sound anymore.

Be aware if you do this, that you can't get the sound back unless you replace the speaker unit. I'm not planning to do that though. 😂
