Sure Alarm battery Back-Up System
This SmartSet ® Clock Radio includes a Sure Alarm battery back-up circuit that can wake
you up even if the power is 'Off' at the selected wake up time. If your power is 'Off' at the
selected wake up time the clock display will be off and the radio will not operate, but a
separate mini-buzzer will turn 'On' automatically to wake you up, even if you had selected
the 'Wake to Radio' option.The Sure Alarm will sound for 30 seconds and then shut
off automatically. To stop the Sure Alarm buzzer immediately, press the RADIO ON/
OFF button.Pressing the SNOOZE button has no effect during Sure Alarm operation.
NOTE: In order to maximize the life of the built in lithium battery, please be
sure to set the ALARM 1 and ALARM 2 OFF if the radio will be disconnected
from the AC outlet for more than a few hours. This will prevent the Sure Alarm
from turning 'On' unnecessarily.

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.

WARNING: DANGER OF EXPLOSION IF BATTERY IS INCORRECTLY REPLACED.
REPLACE ONLY WITH THE SAME OR EQUIVALENT TYPE.
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
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 A M, Sunday , January 1st (1. 1), 2012".
If you notice that the time on your SmartSet ® clock radio is completely incorrect,
and the DAY OF WEEK 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 11,12 and install a new CR2032 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 in the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons, press the TUNE /SET ▲
button to set the display to the correct year, then release the buttons.
4.) D e p r e s s t h e M O N T H / D AT E b u t t o n . T h e d i s p l a y w i l l c h a n g e f r o m ' Ti m e '
t o 'Month/Date' (MM/DD).
While holding in the MONTH/DATE button, press the TUNE /SET ▲ button to set the
display to the correct Month and Date. The DAY OF WEEK indicator will change
automatically as you adjust the Month/Date settings. When the correct Month and
Date appear on the display, release the buttons.
5.) Depress the TIME button and the TUNE /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 years, depending on the number and duration of the power
outages you experience.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Care Of Cabinets
DIMMER Control
The DIMMER control was set to High position at our factory. If you find the clock display
is too bright in a darkened room, set the Dimmer by pressing SNOOZE / SLEEP
OFF / DIMMER Button, when Radio is off.
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 2 years even
if it is never connected to an AC power supply. If your clock 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 '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 CR2032 or equivalent.
2.) Remove the battery from its package so it is ready to install.
IMPORTANT: Leave the AC adapter 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 face up and use a small screw driver 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.

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.
