Thank you for purchasing this Emerson SmartSet® Dual Alarm Clock Radio with
Time Projection System, and iPod Docking Station.
This clock radio uses Emerson’s patented SmartSet® Automatic Time Setting
System. The first time you connect this clock radio to your AC outlet, and after
every power interruption, within seconds the clock will automatically set itself to
the correct Year, Month, Date, Day, and Time. You will never see that annoying,
flashing “12:00” display again. In addition all changes from Standard Time to
Daylight Saving Time, and back to Standard Time, are made automatically.
There are dual alarms that can be set and used independently, which means that
you can set one alarm to wake you to the buzzer and the other to wake you to
music. And both of the alarms can be programmed for everyday operation,
weekdays only, or weekends only.
There is a built-in iPod docking station that allows you to play any dockable iPod
model through the speakers of this system. In addition while your iPod is installed
in the docking station the internal iPod battery will be recharged automatically.
You can even choose to wake up to your iPod in the morning.
This model also includes an integrated clock time projector that will project the
time in large RED numerals on the wall or ceiling of a dark room. This allows you
to see the time without actually looking at the clock itself.
There is a long life lithium battery installed in this clock radio when you buy it. This
battery can maintain the time and alarm settings for 3 to 5 years, or even longer,
so there is no need to pay for a new 9-volt battery every 6 months, as is
recommended in other clock radios with normal battery back up.
We have taken every precaution to make sure this radio was in perfect working
order when it left our factory. If you encounter any problems with the set up or
operation of this item, please call the Emerson Consumer Products Corp.,
Customer Service Hotline, toll free, at 1-800-898-9020.
Once again, thank you for purchasing this Emerson SmartSet® Clock Radio.
iPod® is a trademark of Apple Computer Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries.

Unpacking And Set Up
• This carton contains the main unit and 5 different iPod adapters so that you
can securely connect any dockable iPod to the top mounted docking station.
Remove the radio from the carton and remove all packing materials from the
components. We suggest that you save the carton and packing materials if
possible in the event that your unit ever needs to be returned for service.
Using the original carton and packing materials is the only way to protect
your unit from damage in shipment.
• 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
POWER 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 ALARM 1 and ALARM 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’ unnecessarily.

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 (Default Setting)
ZONE 3
—
Central Time
ZONE 4
—
Mountain Time
ZONE 5
—
Pacific Time
ZONE 6
—
Yukon Time
ZONE 7
—
Hawaiian Time
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
or
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.

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
the H button to adjust the hour setting and the M button to adjust the minute
setting as desired.
Each press of the H or M button will advance the display by one hour or one
minute. The display only moves in a forard direction. If you continue to hold the H
or M buttons the display will move forward 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.
Manual Year and Month Adjustments
To manually adjust the MONTH/DAY display, depress and hold the MONTH/
DATE button, then press the
button to move the date forward or the
button
to move the date backward.
To manually adjust the YEAR display, depress and hold the MONTH/DATE and
TIME button together, then press the
the
button to move the year forward or
button to move the year backward.

Listening To A 2G (Second Generation) iPod® Shuffle, MP3 Player,
Or Other External Source
This system includes an Auxiliary Input (Aux) Jack on the back panel so that you
can connect older non-dockable iPods, other MP3 players, or personal CD players,
and listen to them through the speakers of this system.
Use the Auxiliary Input jack to connect the new 2G (Second Generation) iPod
shuffle, older non-dockable iPods, other MP3 players, personal CD players, etc.
Set the Volume level control on this system to a medium level (approximately
“15-20” on the volume level display).
Operate your external device as usual. Make final adjustments to the volume
controls of this system and to your external device to achieve the desired level.
Keep in mind that if the volume level of this system is set too low and the volume
level of your external device is set too high the sound may be distorted. You need
to experiment with both volume controls to find the most desirable volume level
settings.
NOTES :
• While you are enjoying the External audio source via AUX INPUT, the
iPod will not operate.
• If you want to playback from iPod Docking, ensure to disconnect the
AUX input jack.
Phones (Stereo Headphone) Jack
This system includes a stereo headphone jack for private listening without
disturbing others. The Phones jack is located on the back panel. The built in
speakers automatically shut off when headphones are connected to the Phones
jack.
IMPORTANT: Before connecting your headphones, set the Volume control
to a low level. Then connect your headphones, put them on and gradually
increase the volume to a comfortable listening level.
Remember that music files can often contain very loud passages as well as
softer passages. It is a good idea to adjust the listening level during a louder
passage so that you are not surprised by a sudden, uncomfortable increase
in the headphone sound.

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 clock 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 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 CR2450 or equivalent.
2.) Remove the battery from its package so it is ready to install.
IMPORTANT: Leave the radio AC power cord connected to your AC outlet.
This will provide power to the SmartSet ® computer memory while the
original lithium battery is removed.
3.) The battery holder is located on the back panel. See illustration on next page.
Use a small screw driver to remove the screw securing the battery holder to
the cabinet.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO LOSE THIS SMALL SCREW!

26/3/2008, 11:11
4.) Remove the original battery from the holder and insert the new battery with
(+) direction facing up into the holder the same way, observing the positive
(+) direction. Slide the holder with the new battery back into the slot in the
cabinet.
5.) Replace the screw that secures the battery holder in the cabinet.
6.) Turn the radio right side up and confirm that the
LOW indicator is ‘Off’.
7.) Save these instructions. You’ll have to do this again five to eight years from
now!
IMPORTANCE:
1.) Battery shall not be exposed to excessive heat such as sunshine, fire ...
2.) Special requirement for apparatus (and remote control) used with replaceable lithium battery.
CAUTION
Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced. Replace only with
the same or equivalent type.

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
LOW 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 “12:00 AM, Monday, January 1st (1. 1), 2007”.
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 28-29 and install a new CR2450 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
or
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
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.) While holding the TIME button, press the H (Hour Digit) button or M (Minute
Digit) buttons to set the display to the correct Time, then release the button.
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.
Lithium Battery Precautions
• Dispose of the old battery properly. Do not leave it lying around where a
young child or pet could play with, or swallow it. If the battery is swallowed,
contact a physician immediately.
• Battery may explode if mistreated. Do not attempt to recharge it or disassemble
it. Do not dispose of the old battery in a fire.
