FEATURES
Your RadioShack Projection Clock combines a simple
design with advanced technology. You can set the clock
so it projects the current time on a wall or the ceiling for
easy nighttime viewing. Its features include:
Adjustable Projection Light — lets you project the time
on any location on a wall or ceiling. This lets you easily
see the time at night.
Large Liquid Crystal Display — makes the clock easy
to read. The current time and alarm time, the time zone
you are in, and the date and day of the week appear on
the display.
Crescendo Alarm — the alarm sounds a series of beeps
that gradually increase in volume.
Snooze Control — temporarily silences the alarm for
about 8 minutes so you can sleep a little longer.
Display Backlight — lets you see all information on the
display even when it is dark.
Supplied AC Adapter — lets you power the clock’s projection light to help extend battery life.
Three Languages — let you view the day of the week in
English, French, or Spanish.

PREPARATION
INSTALLING BATTERIES
Your clock requires two AA batteries (not supplied) for
power. For the best performance and longest life, we recommend RadioShack alkaline batteries.
Cautions:
• Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type.
• Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of
batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or
rechargeable batteries of different capacities.
Follow these steps to install batteries.
1. Slide the battery compartment cover in the direction
of the arrow to remove it.
2. Place the batteries in the compartment as indicated
by the polarity symbols (+ and –) marked inside.
4
63-969.fm Page 5 Monday, September 27, 1999 9:19 AM
When you install batteries, all display segments
briefly appear. Then AM 12:00 appears, followed by
the seconds display. 1 appears below MONTH and 1
appears below DATE, indicating January 1. P (the
default time zone) appears above the zone indicator.
Note: The clock is preset to display the day of the
week in English. To set the clock to display in another
language, see “Setting the Clock” on Page 7.
3. Replace the cover.
When BATT appears or the clock stops operating properly, replace the batteries.
Warning: Dispose of old batteries promptly and properly.
Do not burn or bury them.
Caution: If you do not plan to use the clock for a month
or more, remove the batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.
CONNECTING TO AC POWER
Your clock comes with an AC adapter so you can operate
the clock’s projector light continuously from AC power.
5
63-969.fm Page 6 Monday, September 27, 1999 9:19 AM
Caution: You must use a Class 2 power source
that supplies 3 volts DC and delivers at least
200 mA. Its center tip must be set to positive
and its plug must fit the clock's DC 3V jack. The supplied
adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter
that does not meet these specifications could damage
the clock or the adapter.
!
Follow these steps to connect the AC adapter to the
clock.
1. Slide the battery compartment cover in the direction
of the arrow to remove it.
2. Plug the AC adapter’s tip into the jack inside the battery compartment.
3. Route the adapter’s cord through the slot marked DC
3V on the back of the clock.
4. Replace the cover.
5. Plug the AC adapter’s other end into a standard AC
outlet.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your RadioShack Projection Clock is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help you care for your clock so you can enjoy it
for years.
Keep the clock dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids might contain minerals that
can corrode the electronic circuits.
Use and store the clock only in normal temperature environments. Temperature extremes
can shorten the life of electronic devices, damage batteries, and distort or melt plastic parts.
Keep the clock away from dust and dirt, which
can cause premature wear of parts.
Handle the clock gently and carefully. Dropping
it can damage circuit boards and cases and
can cause the clock to work improperly.
Use only fresh batteries of the required size
and recommended type. Batteries can leak
chemicals that damage your clock’s electronic
parts.
13
63-969.fm Page 14 Monday, September 27, 1999 9:19 AM
Wipe the clock with a damp cloth occasionally
to keep it looking new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to
clean the clock.
Modifying or tampering with the clock’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate its
warranty. If your clock is not performing as it should, take
it to your local RadioShack store for assistance.
RESETTING THE CLOCK
If the clock does not work properly or locks up, you can
reset it. Open the battery compartment and use a pointed
object such as a straightened paper clip to press RESET.
All display segments briefly appear. Follow the steps listed in “Setting the Clock” on Page 7 to set the clock again.
