Congratulations!
And thank you for purchasing the SmartSet® Clock Radio from Emerson Research.
SmartSet® is the world’s first and only LED clock radio that will automatically set
itself to the correct ‘Year’, ‘Month’, ‘Date’, ‘Day’, and ‘Time’as soon as you plug it in.
The only thing you have to do is tell the SmartSet® what time zone you are in, and
the built in computer does everything else for you immediately. And not only the
first time, but every time the power is interrupted as well.
We all know how annoying it is to wake up in the morning and see the dreaded
flashing “12:00” display on our clocks or clock radios. This means that your power
was interrupted some time during the night while you were sleeping and your clock
doesn’t know what time it is anymore. Unfortunately it probably also means that
you are late for work, or for school, again. But with your SmartSet Clock Radio the
dreaded flashing “12:00” display is a thing of the past. The SmartSet® resets itself
as soon as the power is restored and gets you up on time, every time.
And if that isn’t enough, the SmartSet® computer also knows when Daylight Saving
Time begins and ends and it will adjust itself for those changes automatically through
the year 2099! Leap Years too! And best of all, the long life lithium battery backup
battery is already installed in your radio. You don’t have to remember to put a new
9-volt battery in your radio every 6 months. Under normal circumstances the lithium
battery can last for up to 5 years, and when it does need to be changed, a low
battery indicator will ‘flash’to let you know. The CR2430 lithium battery is available
almost anywhere that batteries are sold.
The SmartSet® also gives you dual alarms that can be set to go off on weekdays
only, weekends only, or all 7 days. You can set one alarm to wake you up to buzzer
Monday through Friday when you have to get up early, and use the second alarm
to wake you up to soft music on Saturday and Sunday when you can sleep in.
Someday all clocks and clock radios may be this smart. But today the technology
is only available from Emerson Research.
We’re sure you’ll be happy and amazed by your SmartSet® Clock Radio, and that it
will give you many years of enjoyment and dependable service.
Once again, all of us at Emerson Research thank you for your purchase.

UNPACKING AND SET UP
• Remove the radio from the carton and remove all packing material from the
radio. We suggest that you save the packing material, if possible, in the unlikely
event that your radio ever needs to be returned for service. The original carton
and packing material is the only safe way to pack your radio to protect it from
damage in transit.
• Remove any descriptive labels or stickers on the front or top of the cabinet. Do
not remove any labels or stickers from the back or bottom of the cabinet.
• Note the serial number on the bottom of your radio and write this number in the
space provided on the Warranty page of this manual.
• Place your radio on a level surface such as a table, desk or shelf, convenient
to an AC outlet, out of direct sunlight, and away from sources of excess heat,
dirt, dust, moisture, humidity, or vibration.
• Unwind the AC power cord and extend it to its full length. The FM antenna is
built in to this cord. It must be fully extended to provide the best FM reception.
PROTECT YOUR FURNITURE
This model is equipped with non-skid rubber 'feet' to prevent the product from
moving when you operate the controls. These 'feet' are made from non-migrating
rubber material specially formulated to avoid leaving any marks or stains on your
furniture. However certain types of oil based furniture polishes, wood preservatives,
or cleaning sprays may cause the rubber 'feet' to soften, and leave marks or a
rubber residue on the furniture. To prevent any damage to your furniture we strongly
recommend that you purchase small self-adhesive felt pads, available at hardware
stores and home improvement centers everywhere, and apply these pads to the
bottom of the rubber 'feet' before you place the product on fine wooden furniture.

POWER SOURCE
This radio is designed to operate on normal 120V 60Hz AC power only. Do not
attempt to operate the radio on any other power source. You could cause damage
to the radio that is not covered by your warranty.
This radio should be connected to an AC outlet that is always ‘live’. Do not connect
it to an outlet that is controlled by a wall switch. When the power to the radio is
interrupted, the built in lithium battery takes over to maintain the time and alarm
settings. To maximize the life of the lithium battery keep the radio connected to a
‘live’AC outlet at all times.
You will note that this system is equipped with a polarized AC power plug having
one blade wider than the other.
This is a safety feature. If this plug does not fit
into your existing AC outlet, do not try to defeat
this safety feature by filing the wide blade to
make it fit into your outlet. If this plug will not fit
into your outlet, you probably have an out-dated
non-polarized AC outlet. You should have your
outlet changed by a qualified licensed
electrician.

SURE ALARM BATTERY BACK-UP SYSTEM
This SmartSet® Clock Radio includes a Sure Alarm battery back-up circuit that can
wake you up even if the power is ‘Off’at the selected wake up time. If your power
is ‘Off’at the selected wake up time the clock display will be off and the radio will
not operate, but a separate mini-buzzer will turn ‘On’automatically to wake you up,
even if you had selected the “Wake to Radio” option. The Sure Alarm will sound for
30 seconds and then shut off automatically.
To stop the Sure Alarm buzzer immediately, press the RADIO ON/OFF button.
Pressing the SNOOZE button has no effect during Sure Alarm operation.
NOTE: In order to maximize the life of the built in lithium battery, please be
sure to set the ALM 1 and ALM 2 switches to the “OFF” position if the radio will
be disconnected from the AC outlet for more than a few hours. This will prevent
the Sure Alarm from turning ‘On’ unecessarily.

SETTING THE TIME, THE FIRST TIME
IMPORTANT: The first time you connect your new SmartSet® clock radio to the
AC outlet the internal computer will automatically set the time correctly for the
Eastern Time Zone, which is the initial default setting. The display will scan for a
few seconds and then show the correct Day and Time in the Eastern zone. If you
live in the Eastern Time zone, there’s nothing else to do. Your clock is set correctly
and running.
If you do not live in the Eastern Time zone you must change the default zone
display to your own zone. You only do this one time and the SmartSet® will remember
the new default zone setting and will always return to that setting after a power
interruption
There are 7 time zones programmed into your SmartSet® clock radio as follows:
ZONE 1
—
Atlantic Time
ZONE 2
—
Eastern Time
ZONE 3
—
Central Time
ZONE 4
—
Mountain Time
ZONE 5
—
Pacific Time
ZONE 6
—
Yukon Time
ZONE 7
—
Hawaiian Time
(Default Setting)
To change the default time zone display, depress the TIME ZONE button.
The number “2” will appear on the display
indicating that the default zone is ZONE 2,
Eastern Time.
Hold the TIME ZONE button and then press either the UP or DOWN buttons until
your own time zone appears on the display, then release the buttons. The clock
display will change to the correct time in the time zone you selected. The clock will
always return to the correct time in the zone you selected after every power
interruption. If you move to a different time zone, simply change the default zone
display to the new zone and the SmartSet® will remember that setting for you.

DATE DISPLAY
To see the correct date at any time, depress the MONTH/DATE button.
The display changes from time to Month and
Date (mm/dd).
For example, May 21st will appear as “5 21”.
When you release the MONTH/DATE button the display returns to the correct
time.
YEAR DISPLAY
To see the correct year, depress the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons together.
The display changes from time to year.
When you release the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons the display returns to the
correct time.
DAYLIGHT SAVING AND LEAP YEAR ADJUSTMENTS
All Daylight Saving and Leap Year adjustments are made automatically by
the SmartSet® internal computer as follows:
• Start of Daylight Saving Time:
At “2:00 AM” on the 2nd Sunday in March, the clock will automatically
advance to “3:00 AM”.
• End of Daylight Saving Time:
At “3:00 AM” on the 1st Sunday in November, the clock will automatically
reset to “2:00 AM”.
• Leap Year:
At “12:00 Midnight” on February 28th, the calendar display will change
to “2 29”.

MANUAL TIME ADJUSTMENTS
Some people like to set their clocks 5 to 10 minutes fast to make sure that they will
always be on time. Even though the SmartSet® sets the time by itself, you still have
the option of adjusting the time manually if you wish.
To manually adjust the time display depress and hold the TIME button, and press
either the UP or DOWN buttons to adjust the time display ahead or back as desired.
Each press of the UP or DOWN buttons will change the display by one minute. If
you hold the UP or DOWN buttons the display will continue to change. The display
will change slowly at first, one minute at a time. But if you continue holding the UP
or DOWN buttons the display will change rapidly.
Note: If you manually adjust the time, your new setting is entered into the SmartSet®
memory. If the power is interrupted, the display will return to your new setting, not
the original setting, when the power is restored.
ADJUSTING THE WAKE UP TIMES
Your SmartSet ® clock radio has two separate alarms that can be set and used
independently. You may use the alarms to wake two people at different times, or
you may use one alarm for weekdays and the other for weekend wake up times.
The procedure for adjusting the wake up time is the same for both Alarm 1 and
Alarm 2.
1.) Depress and hold either the ALM 1 or ALM 2 setting button. The display will
change from the correct time to the Alarm 1 or Alarm 2 wake up time.
2.) While holding the ALM 1 or ALM 2 setting button, depress either the UP or
DOWN button to move the display ahead or back to your desired wake up time.
3.) When the desired wake up time appears on the display, release the UP or
DOWN buttons.
Note: Be sure that you have set the wake up time correctly by observing the
AM indicator. If the AM indicator is ‘On’the wake up time is “AM”. If the AM
indicator is ‘Off’, the wake up time is “PM”.
4.) When the desired wake up time (AM or PM) appears on the display, release
the ALM 1 or ALM 2 setting buttons.

CHANGING THE LITHIUM BATTERY
Like all batteries, eventually the built in lithium battery will need to be replaced. A
number of factors, such as, the length of time between the date the radio was
manufactured and the date you plugged it in for the first time determine the amount
of time before replacement. During this initial storage period, the lithium battery is
supplying power to the SmartSet® computer memory. Once you plug the radio in,
your household outlet supplies the power, and the battery is not being used. A
fresh lithium battery can supply power to the SmartSet ® computer for at least 3
years even if it is never connected to an AC power supply. If your radio was
connected to your AC supply within a few months after it was manufactured, and
you experience only the normal, nuisance type, short duration power interruptions,
your battery may last for up to 5 years or even longer.
When the battery power drops below a certain level, the LOW BATT indicator will
‘flash’. When you see this indicator, you should change the battery as soon as it is
convenient for you to do so. To change the battery proceed as follows:
1.) Purchase a replacement 3V lithium battery wherever batteries are sold. The
battery type is CR2430 or equivalent.
2.) Remove the battery from its package so it is ready to install.
IMPORTANT: Leave the radio power cord connected to your AC outlet. This
will provide power to the SmartSet® computer memory while the original lithium
battery is removed.
3.) Turn the radio upside down and use a small screwdriver to remove the screws
securing the battery holder to the cabinet.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO LOSE THESE SMALL SCREWS!
4.) Remove the original battery from
the holder and insert the new
battery into the holder the same
way, observing the positive (+) CR2430
direction. Slide the holder with the
new battery back into the slot in the
1
cabinet.
2
5.) Replace the screws that secure the
battery holder in the cabinet.
6.) Turn the radio right side up and confirm that the LOW BATT indicator is ‘Off’.
7.) Save these instructions. You’ll have to do this again five to eight years from
now!

RESETTING THE CLOCK AFTER A TOTAL MEMORY LOSS
If you do not change the built in lithium battery within a reasonable period of time
after you see the ‘flashing’LOW BATT. warning indicator, the lithium battery may
become exhausted and will no longer be able to supply back up power to the
SmartSet ® internal computer. If the unit is disconnected from the AC outlet after
the battery is exhausted, or if a power interruption occurs, the SmartSet® memory
will be lost and the clock will need to be reset when the power is restored. Be sure
to install a fresh lithium battery before you reset the clock, otherwise the clock will
need to be reset each time the power is interrupted.
If the lithium battery is exhausted and you experience an interruption in the
AC power supply, the clock will reset itself to its initial default setting when the
power is restored.
The initial default setting is “AM 12:00, Saturday, January 1st (1 1), 2005”.
If you notice that the time on your SmartSet ® clock radio is completely incorrect,
and the day indicator is also wrong, press the MONTH/DATE button to see the
Date. If the Date display is showing “1 1” (January 1st), you probably experienced
a total memory loss.
To reset the clock after a total memory loss, proceed as follows:
1.) Follow the instructions on page 16 and install a new CR2430 lithium battery in
the battery compartment.
2.) Connect the radio to your AC outlet and let the clock set itself.
3.) Depress the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons together. The display will change
from ‘time’to ‘year’.
While holding the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons, press the UP button to
set the display to the correct year, then release the buttons.
4.) Depress the MONTH/DATE button. The display will change from ‘time’ to
‘month/date’(mm/dd).
While holding the MONTH/DATE button, press the UP button to set the display
to the correct month and date. The Day indicator will change automatically as
you adjust the month/date settings. When the correct month and date appear
on the display, release the buttons.

5.) Depress the TIME button and the UP button to set the display to the correct
time. Be sure to confirm that you have set the time correctly to ‘AM’or ‘PM’by
observing the AM indicator.
6.) After you set the time, reconfirm that the Day, and Month/Date displays are still
correct. Make final adjustments if necessary.
The SmartSet® clock memory is now reset and the new lithium battery will maintain
it for the next 5 to 8 years, depending on the number and duration of the power
outages you experience.
IMPORTANT NOTE:
After resetting the clock, don’t forget to reset your wake up times, and alarm mode
settings, and sleep timer settings as well.

If the cabinet becomes dusty, wipe it with a soft cloth. If the cabinet becomes
smudged or dirty, clean it with a soft, slightly dampened cloth. Never allow
water or any liquid to get inside the cabinet. Never use any abrasive cleaners
or cleaning pads as these will damage the finish of your radio.
