Place the wire antenna so that it is straight as possible extending
either above or below the radio.
3. Insert the adaptor plug into the DC socket located on the rear of your
clock radio. Plug the adaptor into a standard 13 amp mains socket
outlet. The display will show "Roberts" for a few seconds and then
the display will show "Setting clock". The clock hands will then move
to 12:00. The radio will scan for DAB signals and if a DAB signal is
found it will then show the current time and date in the display. The
clock hands will then move to show the correct time.
4. If no stations are found, "Clock not set" will be displayed. It may be
necessary to relocate your clock radio to a position giving better reception. You should then carry out a scan to find stations as described on
page 8.
•
IMPORTANT: The mains adaptor is used as the means of connecting
the clock radio to the mains supply. The mains socket used
for the clock radio must remain accessible during normal use. In order
to disconnect the radio from the mains completely, the mains
adaptor should be removed from the mains socket outlet
completely.
Characters appearing on the LCD display indicate that the clock radio is
connected to and powered from the mains supply.

Auxiliary input socket
1. Connect a stereo or mono audio source (ie CD player, MP3 player)
to the Auxiliary input socket.
2. Press the On/Off button to switch on your clock radio and the display
will show "AUX IN".
3. Adjust the Volume control on your player for comfortable listening.
When using the AUX IN mode, the volume control on the radio has
no effect.
4. Remove the cable from the Auxiliary input socket to cancel auxiliary
input mode.
Note: The volume control on your clock radio is bypassed when using
the Auxiliary Input. Therefore you must use the volume control on the
connected player to set the listening level as needed.
