Light-emitting diodes
Explanation:
The context doesn't sound very much Russian and there is obviously a misspelling.
Most electronic clocks use light-emitting diodes (LED) светоизлучающие диоды СИД or liquid crystals (LC) жидкокристаллические индикаторы ЖКИ.

"Alarm-clocks are replaced by solid-state LED watches or VHS timers"

Check it and have a nice day!

There was probably a misprint, and it should have been
'СИД'. It was in an article in a Russian newspaper, about how fewer and fewer people are wearing watches in Russia, and the particular reference was that alarm-clocks are also becoming more scarce. Thanks for your help.

LCD and VCR clocks


Explanation:

I wish I had more context re СЕД. As it is now, it seems to be an inadequate Russian translation of LCD (Liquid Crystal Display). (I have no idea how "СЕД" could have been arrived at; however, the last letter seems to correspond to the Russian "дисплей".) Assuming that this is true, I would translate your sentence as follows:

(the old-fashioned alarm-clocks) are replaced today by LCD and VCR clocks


Hope that this helps.

Best regards,

Artyan
