Thank you for purchasing this Timex Dual Alarm Clock Radio with Redi-Set Automatic Time Setting System. The clock in this model will set
itself to the correct year, month, date, day, and time, the first time you plug it in, and after every power interruption. The default setting is the
Eastern Time zone. All you need do is set it to your own time zone once, and you may never have to adjust it again. Daylight Saving Time
and Standard Time adjustments are made automatically, through the year 2099. This model is truly the cure for the annoying “flashing
12:00” display.
This model includes a programmable dual alarm system that allows you to set one or both alarms for weekdays only, weekends only, or
everyday operation. And you can have one alarm wake you to the buzzer while the second alarm wakes you to your favorite radio station.
And the Sure-Alarm battery back up system will operate the buzzer alarm to wake you up even if the power is off at the wake-up time. Best
of all, with Xtreme Battery Back Up (XBBU) system the long life 3-volt lithium battery that is pre-installed in your unit will last for 5 to 8 years
before it needs to be replaced………a major money-saver compared to buying new 9-volt batteries every 6 months. And when the 3-volt
lithium battery finally does need to be replaced, a low battery indicator begins flashing in the display.
Please read this manual completely to understand all of the great features included in your model. Please retain this manual for future
reference, and because the warranty and product service info are printed at the end of this manual.
Preparation For Use
Unpacking And Set Up
• Remove the radio from the carton and remove all packing materials from the radio. We recommend that, if possible, you save the carton
and packing materials in case your radio ever needs to be returned for service. Using the original carton and packing material is the best
way to protect your radio from damage in transit. If you do dispose of the carton and packing material, please do so properly. Timex
cares about our environment.
• Place the radio on a stable, level surface convenient to an AC outlet, and away from direct sunlight or sources of excess heat, dust,
moisture, or humidity.
• Unwind the external FM antenna on the back cabinet and extend it to its full length for best FM reception.
IMPORTANT! Protect Your Furniture
This radio is equipped with non-skid rubber ‘feet’ to prevent the radio from moving when you operate the controls. These ‘feet’ are made
from special non-migrating rubber material 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 react with the rubber ‘feet’, causing the rubber material to soften
and leave marks or a rubber residue on wooden furniture. If you will be placing this radio on fine wooden furniture we strongly recommend
that you place a small cloth between the radio and your furniture, or that you apply small felt pads on the bottom of the rubber ‘feet’.
Power Source
This radio is designed to operate on normal 120V 60Hz AC power only. Do not attempt to operate this radio on any other power source.
You could cause damage to the radio and such damage 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 installed lithium battery takes over to maintain the time and alarm settings, and to operate the buzzer
alarm if the power is ‘Off’ at the wake up time. To maximize the life of the lithium battery keep the radio connected to a ‘live’ AC outlet at all
This radio is equipped with a polarized AC plug with one wide blade and one narrow blade. This is a safety feature designed to minimize the
chance of electric shock. If this plug will not fit into your existing AC outlet do not try to force it and do not try to file the wider blade to make
it fit. Contact a qualified, licensed electrician to replace your outdated outlet.
Sure Alarm Battery Back-Up System
This Timex Redi-Set Clock Radio includes a Sure-Alarm battery back-up circuit that will wake-you up even if the power is ‘off’ at the selected
wake-up time. If your power is ‘off’ at the 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 selected the Wake To Radio option.
The Sure-Alarm buzzer will sound for 3 minutes and then shut off automatically.
To stop the Sure-Alarm buzzer immediately press the RADIO ON/OFF button. 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 switches to the ‘OFF’ position
if the radio will be disconnected from the AC outlet for more than a few hours. This will prevent the Sure-Alarm buzzer from turning ‘On’

Operating Instructions
Setting The Time, The First Time
IMPORTANT: The first time you connect your Redi-Set 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 begin a countdown sequence (5-4-3-2-1) then the correct year will flash twice, the correct Month/Date will
flash twice, and then the correct Eastern Time will be displayed. If you live in the Eastern Time Zone there is nothing else to
do. Your Redi-Set 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 Redi-Set internal computer 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 Redi-Set clock radio.
ZONE 01 – Atlantic Time
ZONE 02 – Eastern Time (Default Setting)
ZONE 03 – Central Time
ZONE 04 – Mountain Time
ZONE 05 – Pacific Time
ZONE 06 – Alaskan Time
ZONE 07 – Hawaiian Time
To change the default time zone, depress the TIME ZONE button. The number “02” will appear
in the display indicating that the default zone is ZONE 02, Eastern Time.
Operating Instructions
Hold the TIME ZONE button and press either the SET� or � buttons until your own zone number appears in 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 Redi-Set internal
computer will remember that setting for you.
Date Display
To see the correct date at any time, depress the MONTH/DATE button. The display changes from
Time to Month and Date (MM/DD).
For example, October 9th will be displayed as 10. 9.
Year Display
To see the correct year, depress the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons together.
The display changes from Time to Year.
Daylight Saving Time (DST) and Leap Year Adjustments
All Daylight Saving Time and Leap Year adjustments are made automatically by the Redi-Set internal computer as follows:
• Start of Daylight Saving Time – At 2:00 AM on the 2nd Sunday in March the clock will automatically advance to 3:00 AM.
• End of Daylight Saving Time – At 3:00 AM on the 1st Sunday in November the clock will automatically reset to 2:00 AM.
• Leap Year – At 12:00 midnight on February 28th in a Leap Year the calendar display will automatically change to “2.29”.
Note: If you live in an area that does not observe Daylight Saving Time (DST) you may disable the automatic Daylight Saving
Time (DST) feature. Depress and hold the TIME ZONE button for 10 seconds. The display will briefly show “OFF” and then
return to the correct time. The automatic DST feature is now disabled and the time will not change automatically from
Standard Time to Daylight Saving Time. Repeat this procedure again to re-enable the automatic DST feature. After holding
the TIME ZONE button for 10 seconds the display will briefly show “ON” and then return to the correct time. The automatic
DST feature is now re-enabled.
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
Redi-Set internal computer sets the time automatically, 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 SET� or � buttons to adjust the
time display back or forward as desired.
Each press of the SET� or � buttons will change the display by one minute. If you hold SET� or � buttons the display will
continue to change. The display will change slowly at first, two minutes at a time. But if you continue holding the SET� or �
buttons, the display will change rapidly.
Note: If you manually adjust the time your new setting is entered into the Redi-Set internal computer as the new default time
setting. If the power is interrupted the display will return to your new setting, not the original setting, when the power is
Adjusting The Wake Up Times
Your Redi-Set 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 initial default setting for Alarm 1 is 6:00 AM. The initial default setting for Alarm 2 is 7:00 AM.
