Thank you .......................
for purchasing this Emerson Research SmartSet® Dual Alarm, Caller ID
Telephone Clock Radio.
This compact multi-function unit is designed to replace two separate devices
that you probably have on your night table now, but with special features
available only from Emerson Research. The patented SmartSet® Automatic
Time Setting System will set the clock to the correct year, month, day,
date, and time as soon as you plug it in, and after every power interruption.
It also automatically adjusts from Standard Time to Daylight Saving Time
through the year 2099! Leap Years too! The dual alarms can be set
separately to wake you to radio or buzzer, on weekdays only, weekends
only, or all seven days. The long life lithium battery is already installed and
it will maintain your settings from 5 to 8 years before it needs replacing.
And of course the large, super-bright ‘RED’clock display is visible from
anywhere in your room.
The telephone handset has 13 memories for frequently dialed numbers,
including 3 one-touch, speed-dial buttons that you can use for emergency
numbers. The Caller ID system has a lighted display and an 80 number
Caller ID memory. You can automatically dial any number in the Caller ID
memory at the touch of a button. And of course we’ve included the Call
Waiting feature that will signal to let you know that another caller is trying
to reach you.
We have taken great care to insure that every component in your set was
in perfect working order when it left our factory. If, after reading this Owners
Manual, you have any problems with the set up or operation of this product,
please call the Emerson Consumer Products Customer Service Hotline
toll-free at 800-898-9020. The hours of operation are 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Central Time.

Installing The Telephone Memory Back-up Battery
This unit requires a 9-Volt battery, not included, to maintain the telephone caller ID
and speed-dial number memories in the event of a temporary power interruption.
Be sure to use a well-known brand of alkaline battery for longest life and best
performance. If you do not install the back up battery, any numbers that you have
entered into the speed dialing memories, and numbers that have been automatically
recorded in the caller ID memories, may be erased if the AC power supply is
interrupted.
Install the telephone memory back-up battery as follows:
1.) Turn the telephone base unit upside-down. To prevent scratches to the base
unit, place it on a soft surface such as a towel or blanket as you perform this
procedure.
SLI DE TO OP
EN
2.) Press down on the engraved “arrow” on the
battery compartment door and slide the door
in the direction of the arrow to remove it.
3.) Attach the 9-volt battery to the terminals
of the battery harness as shown.
It can only be attached one way.
4.) Push the battery back into the battery compartment and replace the battery
door. Turn the base unit right side up again.

Low Battery Indication (
)
When the 9-Volt battery becomes weak, a low battery-warning indicator
will
appear in the Caller ID display.
When you see this indicator you should replace the 9-Volt battery as soon as
possible. To avoid losing the numbers stored in the handset memory or the Caller
ID memory, leave the base unit connected to the AC outlet while you are changing
the battery.
Connecting The Telephone Cords
Line Cord
Unwind the straight telephone line cord. First connect one end of this cord to the
modular socket marked “LINE”on the back of the telephone base unit. Then connect
the other end of the cord to your telephone wall jack.
Telephone Wall Jack.
Push the modular plugs all the way in to the sockets until a ‘click’is heard and the
cords are locked in place.
Note: If you have some other type of telephone jack, such as a 3-pin connector
jack, you will have to buy an appropriate modular to 3-pin connector plug,
available wherever telephone accessories are sold.

handset. Then connect the other end of the coiled cord to the socket marked
“HANDSET” on the back of the telephone base unit.
Push the modular plugs all the way into the sockets until a click is heard and the
plugs are locked in place.

POWER SOURCE
The model is designed to operate on 120V AC 60Hz house current only. Attempting
to operate this model by any other power source could cause damage to the unit,
and such damage is not covered by your warranty.
Make sure that you connect the power cord to an AC outlet that is always ‘live’. Do
not connect to an AC outlet that is controlled by a wall switch. This SmartSet ®
clock radio uses a long life lithium battery to maintain the time and alarm setting
during temporary power interruptions. When the clock radio is connected to a ‘live’
AC outlet the back-up battery goes into a ‘standby’ mode to preserve power.
Therefore keep the unit connected to a ‘live’outlet at all times to extend the life of
the lithium battery.
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 nonpolarized AC outlet. You should have
your outlet changed by a qualified
licensed electrician.

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.

Call Waiting and Caller ID Service Information
This SmartSet® telephone clock radio is compatible with Caller ID and Call Waiting
service provided by your local telephone company. Both the Caller ID and Call
Waiting features are not normally part of the basic telephone service package. If
you have already subscribed to these extra services, there is nothing further to do.
Your SmartSet® telephone clock radio is ready to use.
If you do not currently subscribe to Call Waiting and Caller ID services, you may
still use this SmartSet® telephone clock radio as you would any normal telephone,
however the Caller ID information will not appear in the display. If you want to take
advantage of the Call Waiting and Caller ID features of this SmartSet® telephone
clock radio you must contact your local telephone service provider and subscribe
to these services. In most cases there will be an additional monthly charge for
these services.
With the Call Waiting feature you will hear an audible signal on the telephone to
alert you that you have another call waiting. The signal may be a “click” sound or
possibly a soft “beep”. Your local phone company selects the signal sound. When
you hear that signal you may press the FLASH button on the handset to speak to
the second caller briefly, then press the FLASH button again to return to the first
caller. With the Caller ID feature you will be able to see the name and telephone
number of the calling party on the Caller ID display. You can then decide if you
wish to answer the call or not. You can also automatically call back any of the
numbers stored in the Caller ID memory, up to 80 numbers maximum. Both these
features will be explained in more detail later in this manual.

Other Adjustments
There are 3 other settings that you may need to adjust before using your phone:
Telephone Ringer Level
The RINGER level switch (HI/LOW/OFF) is located on the back cabinet of the
base unit. We have set the level to “HI” at our factory. If you feel that the ring sound
is too loud, set the switch to the “LOW” position. If the switch is set to the “OFF”
position the telephone will not ring at all.
Handset Volume Level
The 3-position Handset VOL (Volume) Control is located on the side of the handset.
We have set this switch to the highest setting at our factory. If you find that the
handset volume is too loud, set this switch the medium or low position.
TONE/PULSE Dialing Selector
This switch was set to the TONE dialing position at our factory. If you do not have
Touch Tone dialing on your telephone line, set this switch to the PULSE dialing
position. If you need to switch to tone dialing temporarily, to respond to automated
telephone message prompts for example, you can simply press the ‘ TONE’
button on the telephone keypad and then press the desired number buttons. After
you hang up, the handset automatically returns to the Pulse dialing mode.

Caller ID Display Viewing Angle
All Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDs) have certain viewing angle limitations. They are
intended for viewing within a certain range and the display is clearest within that
range. If you view the display from outside of its normal viewing angle the information
on the display may seem to “fade”, or it may appear that the entire display is ‘On’.
This is a normal characteristic of LCD displays and not an indication of any problems
with your set. To compensate for this we have provided two foldable “legs” on the
bottom of the base unit.
If necessary you can unfold these two legs. This will raise the back of the base unit
cabinet slightly and may provide an improvement in the viewing angle. However
keep in mind that the Caller ID display in this model is designed for the clearest
viewing when you are looking downward at the display. If you are lying in bed
looking upward at the display you will be outside the normal viewing angle range
and the information on the display may not be visible.

Storing Numbers In The Handset Memory
You can store up to 13 of your most frequently called numbers in the handset
speed-dialing memory. The keypad buttons M1, M2, and M3 are one-touch
memories. Simply pressing any one of those buttons will immediately dial the stored
number. The keypad buttons “0” through “9” are two-touch memories. To dial a
stored number you must first press the MEMORY button, and then press the desired
number button to dial the stored number.
To store numbers:
1.) Lift the handset from the cradle.
Note: After a few seconds, you will hear the “Off the hook/hang up”
warning signal from the telephone company. You may continue through
the steps as below. However, if you are going to store many numbers,
suggest to press “Hook” button on the cradle periodically.
2.) Press the STORE button on the keypad.
3.) Dial the area code and number you wish to store. Don’t forget to dial a “1”
before the area code if necessary.
Note: The maximum number of digits that can be entered in any memory
location is 16.
4.) Press the STORE button again, and then press the desired memory location
button, either M1, M2, M3, or Number keys “0” through “9”.
5.) Repeat this procedure until you have stored up to 13 frequently dialed numbers.
To change a number stored in any memory just perform Steps 1 through 3 above
and store the new number in the desired memory location. The old number will be
deleted when the new number is stored.

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 SET + or SET – 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
either the SET + or SET – buttons to adjust the time display ahead or back as
desired. Each press of the SET + or SET – buttons will change the display by one
minute. If you hold the SET + or SET – 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 SET + or SET – 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 ALM 1 or ALM 2 setting button. The display will
change from the correct time to the Alarm 1 or Alarm 2 wake up time.

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 ALM 1 or ALM 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 BATTERY 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 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!
33

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.
Battery holder slot
Turn the holder up side down
5.) Replace the screw that secures the battery holder in the cabinet.
6.) Turn the radio right side up and confirm that the BATTERY LOW 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 ‘flashing’BATTERY 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, Saturday, January 1st (1 1), 2005”.
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 34 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’.
While holding the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons, press the SET + 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 SET + 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.
35
CKT9087_090606.p65
35
6/9/2006, 10:56
5.) Depress the TIME button and the SET + button to set the display to the correct
time. 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.

If the cabinet becomes dusty, wipe it with a soft cloth. If the cabinet becomes
smudged or dirty, clean it with a soft, slightly dampened cloth. Never allow
water or any liquid to get inside the cabinet. Never use any abrasive cleaners
or cleaning pads as these will damage the finish of your radio.
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.
