PREPARATION
CONNECTING TO AC
POWER
Plug the clock radio’s power cord into a
standard AC outlet. The display turns on
and the BATTERY SENTINEL indicator
lights. (See “Installing Back-Up Batteries.”)
Caution: The clock radio’s AC power cord
is equipped with a polarized plug to prevent electric shock. One blade on the
cord’s plug is wider than the other and the
plug only fits an outlet one way. If you cannot easily insert the plug, turn it over and
try again. Do not force it.
INSTALLING BACK-UP
BATTERIES
Follow these steps to install back-up batteries.
1. Slide the battery compartment cover
in the direction of the arrow and
remove it.
2. Place the batteries in the compartment and on top of the attached ribbon, as indicated by the polarity
symbols (+ and –) marked in the compartment.
3. Replace the cover.
The BATTERY SENTINEL indicator lights
if the back-up batteries are not installed or
need to be replaced.
Warning: Always dispose of old batteries
promptly and properly. Do not bury or burn
them.
To keep the clock running for up to 8 hours
during an AC power failure, install three
AA batteries (not supplied) in the battery
compartment. For the longest life, we recommend alkaline batteries.
Caution: Use only fresh batteries of the
required size and recommended type.
Note: To prevent unnecessary drain on
the battery, connect AC power then install
the batteries.

THE FCC WANTS YOU TO
KNOW
Your clock radio might cause TV or radio
interference even when it is operating
properly. To determine whether your clock
radio is causing the interference, turn off
your clock radio. If the interference goes
away, your clock radio is causing the interference. Try to eliminate the interference
by:
• moving your clock radio away from
the TV or radio
• connecting your clock radio to an outlet that is on different electrical circuit
from the receiver
• contacting your local RadioShack
store for help
If you cannot eliminate the reference, the
FCC requires you that you stop using your
radio.
