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 and it costs about the same as a normal 9-volt battery. You can do the math yourself. Change the built in lithium battery after 5 years, or buy a 9-volt battery when you buy your radio and every 6 months from then on. That’s a ‘no-brainer’. You’ll save so much money on batteries it’s like getting the SmartSet radio for ‘free’.
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. Good Housekeeping magazine was so impressed with SmartSet ® that it was selected for their “Good Buy 2000 Award” as one of the seven most innovative products of the year 2000.
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.

(1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and
(2) This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
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 1 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.
This radio is designed to operate on normal 110V-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.

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
, which is the initial default setting. The display will scan for a few seconds and then show the correct month, date, 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:
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.
To see the correct date at any time, depress the Date button. The display changes from time to month and date (MM/DD). For example, May 21 st will appear as
“5 21”. When you release the Date button the display returns to the correct time.
To see the correct year, depress the Time and Date buttons together. The display changes from time to year. When you release the Time and Date 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.
At 12 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
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
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.
SELECTING THE ALARM MODE
Your SmartSet ® clock radio allows you to select from among three different alarm operation modes for either alarm. The alarm modes are:
• Weekdays only – the alarm will only turn on Monday through Friday;
• Weekends only – the alarm will only turn on Saturday and Sunday;
• Everyday – the alarm will turn on all 7 days.
To check the Alarm Mode setting for Alarm 1, depress the Alarm 1 setting button.
The display will show the Alarm 1 wake up time and the day of the week indicators will show you the alarm mode which is selected. If all 7 indicators are ‘On’, the
Everyday mode is selected. If only the Monday through Friday indicators are ‘On’, the Weekdays only mode is selected. If only the Saturday and Sunday indicators are ‘On’, the Weekends only mode is selected.
To change the Alarm Mode setting for Alarm 1, hold the Alarm 1 setting button and press the Alarm Mode button until the day indicators show the desired mode setting,
Weekdays only, Weekends only, or Everyday operation. Release the Alarm Mode and Alarm 1 setting buttons and the display will return to the correct time.
CHECKING THE WAKE UP TIMES AND ALARM MODE
Whenever you want to check the wake up time or the alarm mode settings, simply press either the Alarm 1 or Alarm 2 setting buttons. The display will change from correct time to wake up time and the day indicators will show you the alarm mode which is currently selected.

WAKE TO RADIO
1. Turn the radio ‘On’ and select the band, station, and volume level that you wish to hear when the alarm comes on, then turn the radio ‘Off’ again.
2. Reconfirm the wake up time and alarm mode settings for the alarm you are using, Alarm 1, Alarm 2, or both alarms.
3. Set the Alarm selector switch for one or both alarms to the ‘Radio’ position.
The appropriate Alarm 1 and/or Alarm 2 indicators will light up to confirm that the alarms are set.

Mode setting). To stop the buzzer and turn on the radio immediately, press the
Radio On/Off button instead of the Alarm 1 or Alarm 2 button.
5. If you do not want the alarm to turn the buzzer on the following day, set the appropriate Alarm selector to the ‘Off’ position.
RADIO AND BUZZER OPERATION
You may also set one alarm for wake to radio and the other for wake to buzzer.
Just set the Alarm 1 and Alarm 2 selector switches to the desired positions.
After the radio or buzzer alarm sounds in the morning you may press the Snooze
Bar for a few more minutes sleep. The alarm will stop for approximately 9 minutes and then turn on again. You may repeat the Snooze operation up to seven times if desired, but after the seventh time the alarm will not turn on again.
SLEEP TO MUSIC TIMER
You can program the sleep timer to play the radio for up to 90 minutes and then shut off automatically.
1. Press the Sleep On button. The display will briefly show “10” and the radio will begin to play. After 10 minutes the radio will shut off automatically. Each time you press the Sleep button the sleep timer will start at 10 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 On button and press either the Up or Down button to change the display to the desired sleep time, up to a maximum of 90 minutes or at minimum of 2 minutes.
Note: When you change the sleep timer from the 10 minute 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 zero from that point.
3. To cancel the sleep timer before it counts down to “00” and shut the radio ‘Off’ immediately, press the Snooze Bar.
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.
The Dimmer control was set to the ‘High’ position at our factory. If you find the clock display is too bright in a darkened room, set the Dimmer control to the ‘Low’ position.
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 Battery 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.
3. 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.
4. 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!
5. Turn the radio right side up and remove the battery holder. Then remove the original battery from the holder and insert the new battery into the holder the same way, with the positive (+) side facing up. Slide the holder with the new battery back into the opening in the cabinet.
6. Turn the radio upside down again and replace the screw that secures the battery holder in the cabinet.
7. Turn the radio right side up and confirm that the Low Battery indicator is ‘Off’.
8. 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 battery 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 Time and Date 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 10 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 Time and Date buttons together. The display will change from
‘time’ to ‘year’.
4. While holding the Time and Date buttons, press the Up button to set the display to the correct year, then release the buttons.
5. Depress the Date button. The display will change from ‘time’ to ‘month/date’
6. While holding the 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.
7. Depress the Time button and the Up 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.
8. 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.
After resetting the clock, don’t forget to reset your wake up times, and alarm mode settings, and sleep timer settings as well.
