Thank you for purchasing this SmartSet® CD clock radio. It’s world’s first
and only LED CD 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 CD clock radio 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 SmartSet® the dreaded flashing “12:00” display is a thing of the past.
SmartSet® resets itself as soon as the power is restored and gets you up
on time, every time.
The SmartSet ® CD Clock Radio has dual alarms with 5 different
programming options:
• Monday through Friday only;
• Monday through Saturday only;
• All Seven Days;
• Saturday and Sunday only, or
• Sunday only.
With these options you almost never have to worry about the alarm waking
you up on days that you want to sleep in.
For future reference, record the serial number in the space provided.

PREPARATION FOR USE
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 the CD protective card on the CD mechanism and 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. Unwind the FM lead
wire antenna and extend it to its full length.
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
AC Outlet
outlet. If this plug will not fit into your
outlet, you probably have an outdated non-polarized AC outlet. You
AC Plug
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.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
SETTING THE TIME, THE FIRST TIME
The first time you connect your new SmartSet ® CD Clock Radio to the AC outlet
the clock will immediately begin to scroll. After a few seconds it will set itself
automatically to the correct year, month, date, day, and time in the Eastern Time
Zone, which is Zone 02. If you live in the Eastern Time Zone there is nothing else
to do. Your clock is now set and running. If you live in a different time zone you
must set the clock to your own time zone. You only make this adjustment one time.
The SmartSet clock will remember the time zone that you set and automatically
return to that time zone after every power interruption.
There are 7 time zones programmed into your SmartSet ® CD Clock Radio as
follows:
ZONE 01 —
ATLANTIC TIME
ZONE 02 —
EASTERN TIME (The default setting)
ZONE 03 —
CENTRAL TIME
ZONE 04 —
MOUNTAIN TIME
ZONE 05 —
PACIFIC TIME
ZONE 06 —
YUKON TIME
ZONE 07 —
HAWAIIAN TIME
To change the time zone from the ZONE 02 default setting:
• Press and hold the PROGRAM/TIME ZONE button. The display will show
“02” which is the Eastern Time Zone.
• While holding the PROGRAM/TIME ZONE button press either the SKIP FWD/
UP or the SKIP REV/DOWN button to adjust the zone display to your own
time zone as indicated above.
• When your zone appears in the display release the buttons. The display will
now show the correct time in your time zone.

example, at midnight on February 28th (2 28), the display will automatically change
to March 1st (3 1), unless it is a Leap Year, in which case the display will change
to February 29th (2 29).
DAY DISPLAY
To see the correct day of the week depress the REPEAT/DAY button. The day is
expressed numerically as follows:
1 – Monday,
2 – Tuesday,

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 unit 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 SKIP FWD/UP or SKIP REV/DOWN buttons to adjust the time display
ahead or back as desired. Each press of the SKIP FWD/UP or SKIP REV/DOWN
buttons will change the display by one minute. If you hold the SKIP FWD/UP or
SKIP REV/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 SKIP
FWD/UP or SKIP REV/DOWN buttons, the display will change rapidly.
Notes:
• If you manually adjust the time, your new setting is entered into the unit memory.
If the power is interrupted, the display will return to your new setting, when the
power is restored.
• You can adjust the time setting while the radio is playing or while the power is
‘Off’, but you cannot adjust the time when the function selector is set to the CD
mode.

ADJUSTING THE WAKE UP TIMES
Note: The Wake Up Times cannot be adjusted when the function selector is set to
‘CD’
Your Unit 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.) Set the AL (Alarm) 1 function switch to ‘ADJ’. The display will change from the
correct time to the Alarm 1 wake up time.
2.) Then press either the SKIP FWD/UP or SKIP REV/DOWN buttons to move
the display ahead or back to your desired wake up time.
3.) Release the SKIP FWD/UP or SKIP REV/DOWN buttons when the desired
wake up time is reached.
4.) Set the AL1 switch back to the ‘ON’or ‘OFF’position.
5.) Set the AL2 switch to the ‘ADJ’position and repeat the above procedure to set
the correct Alarm 2 wake up time.
6.) Make sure that both alarm function switches are set back to either the ‘ON’or
‘OFF’positions.
Note: Be sure to observe the PM indicator to make sure you are setting the wake
up time correctly. If the PM indicator is ‘On’the time displayed is PM.
If both of the Alarm switches are set to ‘ADJ’ at the same time the clock will
display the correct current time, not the Alarm 1 or Alarm 2 wake up time. So
be sure to set the AL 1 switch back to the ‘ON’ or ‘OFF’ position before
setting the AL 2 switch to the ‘ADJ’ position.

After the music or buzzer alarm sounds in the morning, you may press the SNOOZE
button for a few more minutes sleep. The Music or Buzzer alarm can be silenced
for approximately 9 minutes and then turn on again. You may repeat the SNOOZE
operation up to seven times if desired, but after about 60 minutes since the alarm
is first activated, the alarm will not turn ‘On’again.
SLEEP TO MUSIC TIMER
1.) Press the SLEEP button. The display will briefly show “02” and the music will
begin to play. After 2 minutes the music will shut off automatically. Each time
you press the SLEEP button, the sleep timer will start at 2 minutes. This is the
sleep timer default setting.
2.) To increase or decrease the amount of time that the radio will play before
shutting off, hold the SLEEP button and press either the SKIP FWD/UP or
SKIP REV/DOWN button to change the display to the desired sleep time, up to
a maximum of 90 minutes or a minimum of 2 minutes.
Note: When you change the sleep timer from the 2 minutes default setting
to a different setting, the new setting becomes the default setting.
Whenever you activate the sleep timer it will begin with your new default setting
and count down to “00” minute from that point.
3.) To cancel the sleep timer before the sleep time has elapsed press the SNOOZE
button.
IMPORTANT: Remember that the station and volume settings you choose for
the SLEEP to MUSIC operation are the same settings you will hear if you set the
alarm for wake to radio the following morning.
STEREO HEADPHONE JACK
Connect the stereo headphones to the 3.5mm PHONES jack located at left side
panel for private listening. When the headphones are connected, the sound from
the speakers will automatically cut off. Before putting the headphones on your
head, reduce the volume to a low level. Then put the headphones on and gradually
increase the volume to a comfortable listening level.

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 unit 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 inside computer memory. Once you plug the unit in, your
household outlet supplies the power, and the battery is not being used. A fresh
lithium battery can supply power to the inside computer for at least 2 years even if
it is never connected to an AC power supply. If your unit 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 .
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 CR2032 or equivalent.
2.) Remove the fresh battery from its package so it is ready to install.
IMPORTANT: Keep the radio connected to the AC outlet during battery
replacement. This will provide power while the original battery is removed.
3.) Turn the radio upside down and open the outer battery door by pressing on the
tab. Remove the outer door.

4.) Use a small Philips screwdriver to loosen the small screw securing the lithium
battery holder at the bottom of the battery compartment. To avoid losing the
screw just loosen it enough to release the battery holder but do not completely
remove the screw.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO LOSE THE SMALL SCREW!!
5.) Remove the battery holder from the cabinet. Then remove the original battery
from the holder noting polarity and insert the new battery into the holder with
the same polarity.
6.) Slide the holder with the new battery back into the opening in the cabinet.
7.) Tighten the small screw to secure the lithium battery holder and replace the
outer battery door. Turn the radio right side up and confirm that the “LOW
BATT” indicator is ‘Off’.
8.) Save these instructions. You’ll have to do this again 5 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 internal
computer. If the unit is disconnected from the AC outlet after the battery is exhausted,
or if a power interruption occurs, the unit’s 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. If you notice that the time on the unit is completely incorrect, and the
Month and Day indicators are also wrong, press the RANDOM/YEAR button to
see the Year. If the year display is showing “2000”, 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 19 and install a new CR2032 lithium battery in
the battery compartment.
2.) Connect the radio to your AC outlet .
3.) Hold the PROGRAM/TIME ZONE button and then press either the SKIP FWD/
UP or SKIP REV/DOWN button until the time zone code which stands for your
location appears on the display.
4.) Depress RANDOM/YEAR button, the display will change from “Time” to “Year”.
5.) While holding RANDOM/YEAR button, press the SKIP FWD/UP or SKIP REV/
DOWN button to set the display to the correct year, then release the buttons.
6.) Hold the CD DISPLAY/DATE button, then press the SKIP FWD/UP or SKIP
REV/DOWN button to set the display to the correct Month and Date. When the
correct Month and Date appear on the display, release these buttons.
7.) Hold the TIME button, then press the SKIP FWD/UP or SKIP REV/DOWN
button to set the display to the correct time.
8.) After you set the time, reconfirm that the Year and Month/Date displays are still
correct. Make final adjustment if necessary.

The system memory is now reset and the new lithium battery will maintain it for the
next 2 to 5 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.
