FCC Information
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC
Rules. Operation is subject to the following two
conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful
interference, and (2) this device must accept any
interference received, including interference
that may cause undesired operation.
In accordance with FCC requirements, changes
or modifications not expressly approved by
Thomson Inc. could void the user’s authority to
operate this product.
This device generates and uses radio frequency
(RF) energy, and if not installed and used
properly, this equipment may cause interference
to radio and television reception.
If this equipment does cause interference to
radio or television reception (which you can
determine by unplugging the unit), try to correct
the interference by one or more of the following
measures:
• Re-orient the receiving antenna (that is, the
antenna for the radio or television that is
“receiving” the interference).
• Move the unit away from the equipment that
is receiving interference.
• Plug the unit into a different wall outlet so
that the unit and the equipment receiving
interference are on different branch circuits.
If these measures do not eliminate the
interference, please consult your dealer or an
experienced radio/television technician for
additional suggestions. Also, the Federal
Communications Commission has prepared a
helpful booklet, “How To Identify and Resolve
Radio TV Interference Problems.” This booklet
is available from the U.S. Government Printing
Office, Washington, DC 20402. Please specify
stock number 004-000-00345-4 when ordering
copies.

Technical Information
The AC power plug is polarized
(one blade is wider than the
other) and only fits into AC
power outlets one way. If the
plug will not go into the outlet
completely, turn the plug over
and try to insert it the other
way. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified
electrician to change the outlet, or use a
different one. Do not attempt to bypass this
safety feature.

Battery Back-Up Operation
Help protect the environment - we
recommend that you dispose of used
batteries by putting them into specially
designed receptacles.
This clock radio is equipped with a
memory holding system that can be
powered with 2 “AA” batteries (included
and installed). The power failure
protection circuit will not operate unless
battery is installed. When normal
household power is interrupted, or AC line
cord is unplugged, the batteries will
power the clock radio to keep track of
time and alarm settings programmed into
memory. When the battery backup
functions, the digital display will not light,
however, the function of alarm still occurs
during the power interruption if
remaining battery power is adequate.
Normal operation will resume after AC
power is restored so you will not have to
reset the time or the alarm.
Maintenance
Clean the unit with a soft cloth, or a damp
chamois leather. Never use solvents.

However, if you find abnormal temperature
display on the main unit, you may
synchronize the temperature manually by
following the steps below:
1. At the main unit (clock radio):
press and hold ID until the temperature
display “- - -” at the lower right of the
display starts scrolling.
2. At the digital thermometer: Unscrew
at the battery compartment to open the
door. Press and hold ID inside the battery
compartment until the antenna icon on
the display of the thermometer flashes.
Synchronization starts automatically and
should be finished within several seconds.
• When synchronization succeeds, the
antenna icon stops flashing and the
synchronized temperature shows on the
main unit.
3. If synchronization fails (no temperature
shows on the main unit), perform step 2
again.
If synchronization still fails after several
attempts and the temperature display
“- - -” on the main unit stops scrolling and
starts to flash, you have to perform both
steps 1 and 2 again.
Line Out Temperature Sensor
Placing thermometer
If you are going to install the
thermometer outdoor with extreme
temperatures (below 14oF (-10oC) ), the use
of line out temperature sensor (included)
is recommended to avoid battery failure.
Insert the sensor connector to the receptor
(below ID button) in the battery
compartment. The sensor wire should be
extended from battery compartment
through the hole at the lower left of the
door.
The digital thermometer can be fixed on walls
with the included holder (screws not
provided). If you are placing it outdoor,
ensure that it does not get wet by rain and is
not under direct sunlight.

Tips:
• The thermometer sends the
latest temperature information to
the main unit every 35 seconds.
There may be delay on the main unit to
show the most updated temperature
changes.
• When the outdoor temperature display
is flashing on the main unit, there may be
no signal receiving from the digital
thermometer. Please make sure the
batteries of the thermometer are not
empty and the thermometer is not placed
too far from the main unit and without
obstacles between them.
