Is it possible to take the sound out of an alarm clock and still have it to work? Answered

Is it possible to take the sound out of an alarm clock and still have it to work? I was going to make something, and decided it would be vital to have. If it is possible, how would I do it? Thanks

. If you are wanting to use the clock part (you msg is not very clear - too many pronouns), just clip the wires going to the speaker. . If you want to use the speaker, see L's comment.

Well, I was just going to take the sound and possibly the vibration device, so at a certain time just the light will turn on at the set time.

I have a Herman Miller travel alarm clock. a light flashes when the alarm goes off. In this case It's simply a matter of clipping the wires to the speaker to remove the audible alarm capabilities.

Alarm clocks often have a piezo-buzzer, which is only connected by two wires. If you want to get this out you'll probably find it's been melted or glued in, but if you pick the melt/glue off with a knife they come out. You would need an oscillator circuit to drive it though. L
