Thank you… … … … … …
for purchasing this Emerson stereo clock radio with CD player and Power Panel
CD loading system. The motorized front panel rotates 90 degrees at the touch of a
button to make loading and unloading your CDs simple and easy. The Power Panel
loading system also means that this radio takes up less space on the bedside table
than other radios with drawer type CD loading systems.
In addition to the excellent sound from both the radio and the CD player this unit
also features a digital radio frequency display to make tuning your favorite stations
easier. There’s an automatic display dimmer that adjusts the brightness of the
clock and radio display to match the room lighting conditions. And there’s a twoway snooze control to make it easier to grab those few extra minutes of sleep. You
can press the snooze button as usual or, if that’s too much of a task while you’re
half-asleep, you can just wave your hand in front of the radio to activate the snooze
function.
Of course there’s a battery back up system to maintain your clock and alarm settings
in the event of a power interruption. And on model CKD2330 we’ve even included
a credit card size, 10-button remote control so you can switch the unit On and Off,
operate the CD functions, and adjust the volume from across the room.
This system was designed to give you many years of enjoyment with an absolute
minimum of care and maintenance. Please read this Owners Manual carefully and
completely to ensure that you get the maximum benefit from all the outstanding
features we have included in this product. If you encounter any problem with the
set up or operation of this model please do not return it to the retail store. Please
call the Emerson Customer Service Hotline toll free at 1-800-898-9020. One of
our service technicians will try to diagnose the problem for you.
Once again thanks for choosing this Emerson audio product.
For future reference, record the serial number in the space provided.

Battery Back Up System
This model includes a battery back up circuit that will maintain the clock and alarm
settings in the event of a temporary power interruption. The battery back up system
requires two “AA” batteries, not included. The battery compartment is located on
the bottom of the cabinet.
1.) Turn the radio upside down. Slide the battery door in the direction of the arrow
and remove the door.
2.) Insert two fresh “AA” alkaline batteries in the compartment. Be sure to observe
the polarity markings engraved in the compartment. If the batteries are inserted
incorrectly the back up system will not work.
3.) Replace the battery door and turn the radio right side up.
If the power is interrupted the display will go off and the radio will not work. However
the batteries will maintain the clock and alarm settings in memory. When the power
is restored the display will come on again and the clock and alarm settings will be
correct.
The life of the batteries will depend on the frequency and length of the power
interruptions that you experience. For best results we suggest you install fresh
batteries every 9 to 12 months. Always change both batteries together with a wellknown brand of alkaline batteries. Do not mix old and new batteries, or different
types of batteries such as alkaline and carbon-zinc batteries together.

Remote Control (Model CKD2330 Only)
Model CKD2330 includes a credit card size 10-button remote control that allows
you to operate the CD player, control the volume, and switch the system ‘On’and
‘Off’from across the room. The remote control operates on one, button-style lithium
battery (Type CR2032 or equivalent), included. We have placed a clear plastic
spacer between the battery and the battery contact plate so that the battery will
remain fresh until you are ready to use the remote. Pull on the end of the spacer
tab to remove the spacer from the remote and activate the battery.
Spacer
To use the remote control point the remote at the remote sensor on the front panel
of the radio and press the appropriate buttons on the remote. The effective operating
range of the remote is approximately 15 feet at an angle of no more than 15
degrees to the left or right of ‘dead center’.
When the remote control no longer works or the operation becomes intermittent it
is time to change the battery. Press downward on the locking tab and slide the
battery holder out of the remote as shown.
Remove the exhausted CR2032
battery from the holder, insert a fresh
battery into the holder with the “+” side
facing up, and slide the holder back
into the remote.

IMPORTANT BATTERY PRECAUTIONS:
• Do not leave the exhausted battery lying around where a child or pet might
play with or swallow it.
• If the battery is swallowed contact a physician immediately.
• Do not attempt to open the battery and do not dispose of the battery in a
fire.
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 120V 60Hz AC only. Attempting to operate
this radio on any other power source could cause damage to the unit and such
damage is not covered by your warranty.
Make sure the radio is connected to an AC outlet that is always “live”. Do not
connect the radio to an outlet that is controlled by a wall switch.
NOTE: This unit has a polarized AC plug with one wide blade and one narrow
blade. This plug will only fit into a matching polarized AC outlet. This is a safety
feature to reduce the possibility of electric shock. If this plug will not fit in your AC
outlet, you probably have an outdated non-polarized outlet. You should have your
outdated outlet changed by a qualified, licensed electrician. Do not file the wide
blade on the plug, or use an adapter to make the plug fit into your outlet. This
defeats the safety feature and could expose you to electric shock.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
COMPACT DISC CARE
• To remove a disc from its storage case, press down on the center of the case
and lift the disc out, holding it carefully by the edges.
• Fingerprints and dust should be carefully wiped off the disc’s recorded surface
with a soft cloth.Unlike conventional records, compact discs have no grooves
to collect dust and microscopic debris, so gently wiping with a soft cloth should
remove most particles. Wipe in a straight line from the inside to the outside of
the disc. Small dust particles and light stains will have absolutely no effect on
reproduction quality.
• Clean the disc periodically with a soft, lint-free, dry cloth. Never use detergents
or abrasive cleaners to clean the disc. If necessary, use a CD cleaning kit.
• Never write on or affix labels to the surface of compact discs.
CARE OF THE CABINET
If the cabinet becomes dusty wipe it with a soft dry dust cloth. Do not use any wax,
polish sprays, or abrasive cleaners on the cabinet.
CAUTION
Never allow any water or other liquids to get inside the unit while cleaning.
