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 for
the next 99 years! 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 come on 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 Page 2 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.

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 1:59.59 AM on the first Sunday in April, the clock will automatically
advance to 3:00 AM.
• End of Daylight Saving Time:
At 2:59.59 AM on the last Sunday in October, 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 ALARM 1 or ALARM 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 ALARM 1 or ALARM 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 ALARM 1 or ALARM 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
come on. 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 screw
securing the battery holder to the cabinet.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO LOSE THIS SMALL SCREW!
4.) Remove the original battery from the holder and insert the new battery 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
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 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 6:00 AM, Thursday, January 1st (1 1), 1998.
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 and TIME buttons
together to see the year. If the year display is showing “1998” 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’.
4.) While holding the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons, press the UP button to
set the display to the correct year, then release the buttons.
5.) Depress the MONTH/DATE button. The display will change from ‘time’ to
‘month/date’(mm/dd).
6.) 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.
