Congratulations!

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.

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.

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.

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 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. The FM antenna is built in to this cord. It must be fully extended to provide the best FM reception.

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.

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.

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

ZONE 2

Atlantic Time

Eastern Time (Default Setting)

ZONE 3

ZONE 4

ZONE 5

ZONE 6

Central Time

Mountain Time

Pacific Time

Yukon Time

ZONE 7 — Hawaiian Time

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.

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

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

Alarm 2.

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

DOWN

buttons.

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.

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

BATT LOW

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.

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!

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.

6.) Turn the radio right side up and confirm that the

BATT

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

BATT 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 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

MONTH/DATE

and

TIME

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 16 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’.

4.) While holding the

MONTH/DATE

and

TIME

buttons, press the

UP

button to set the display to the correct year, then release the buttons.

5.) Depress the

MONTH/DATE

button. The display will change from ‘time’ to
