ˆ Preparation
CONNECTING TO AC POWER
Plug the clock radio’s power cord into a standard AC outlet. As
soon as you connect AC power, the display turns on and BATTERY SENTINEL on the front of the clock radio lights.
Caution: The clock radio’s AC power cord is equipped with a
polarized plug to prevent electric shock. One blade on the
cord’s plug is wider than the other and the plug only fits an outlet one way. If you cannot easily insert the plug, turn it over and
try again. Do not force it.
INSTALLING A BACKUP BATTERY
To keep the clock running for up to 8 hours and the alarm
sounding for up to 10 minutes during an AC power failure, install a 9-volt battery (not supplied) in the battery compartment.
For the longest life, we recommend a RadioShack alkaline battery.
Caution: Use only a fresh battery of the required size and recommended type.
Notes:
• BATTERY SENTINEL on the front of the clock radio lights if
there is either no battery installed or the installed battery
requires replacement.
• To prevent unnecessary drain on the battery, plug in the AC
power cord then install the battery.

Preparation
12-1630.fm Page 5 Tuesday, May 9, 2000 1:31 PM
1. While holding back the tab on the battery compartment
cover, pull up the cover to remove it.
2. Snap the battery onto the connector in the compartment
and place the battery in the compartment. BATTERY SENTINEL turns off.
3. Replace the cover.
When BATTERY SENTINEL lights, check or replace the backup battery. When you connect a new battery, BATTERY SENTINEL turns off.
Warning: Always dispose of an old battery promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury it.
Caution: Always remove an old or weak battery. Batteries can
leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.
Notes:
• The display does not light when the clock radio is operating
only on battery power.
• A prolonged power failure can drain the battery. If the display flashes after an AC power failure, the battery is too low
to run the clock. Replace the battery and reset the clock.
