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, TE 

do not try to defeat this safety feature by filing 

the wide blade to make it fit into your outlet. If N 

this plug will not fit into your outlet, you probably N AC Outlet 
AC Plug 


have an out-dated non-polarized AC outlet. You 
should have your outlet changed by a qualified 
licensed electrician. 


Sure Alarm battery Back-Up System 


This SmartSet® Clock Radio includes a Sure Alarm battery back-up circuit that can 
wake you up even if the power is ‘Off at the selected wake up time. If your power 
is ‘Off at the selected 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 had selected the “Wake to Radio” option. 
The Sure Alarm will sound for 30 seconds and then shut off automatically. 
To stop the Sure Alarm buzzer immediately, press the RADIO ON/OFF button. 


Pressing 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 from turning ‘On’ unnecessarily.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS 


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 — Atlantic Time ZONE 2 — _ Eastern Time (Default Setting)

indicating that the default zone is ZONE 2, 
Eastern Time. 

Hold the TIME ZONE button and then press either the SET » (Up) or SET < 
(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. 


Date Display 
To view the correct Date at any time, desress the MONTHI/DATE button. 
The display changes from Time to Month and Date (MM/DD).

Dimmer Control 

The DIMMER control was set to the HI (High) position at our factory. 

If you find the clock display is too bright in a darkened room, set the DIMMER 

control to the LO (Low) position. 

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 2 

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 “AM” indicator will ‘flash’. 

When you see this indicator, you should change the battery as soon as it is conv- 

enient 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 CR2032 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.) Tum the radio face down and use a small screw driver to remove the small 
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 postive (+) direction. Slide the holder with 
the new battery back into the siot in the cabinet. 


12 


5.) Replace the screw that secures the battery holder in the cabinet. 





6.) Turn the radio right side up and confirm that the “l Æ” indicator is ‘Off. 

7.) Save these instructions. You'll have to do this again five to eight years from 
now! 

WARNING: DANGER OF EXPLOSION IF BATTERY IS INCORRECTLY REPLACED 

REPLACE ONLY WITH THE SAME OR EQUIVAENT TYPE. 

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 ‘flashing’ “ Æ” 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 “12:00 AM, Tuesday, January 1* (1 1), 2008”. 

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 button to see the 
Date. 

If the Date display is showing “1 1” (January 1 st), 
you probably experienced a total memory loss. 





To reset the clock after a total memory loss, proceed as follows: 

1.) Follow the instructions on pages 17, 18 and install a new CR2032lithium battery 
in the battery compartment. 

2.) Connect the radio to your AC outlet and let the clock set itself. 

3.) Depress the MONTHIDATE and TIME buttons together. The display will change 
from ‘Time’ to ‘Year’. 

While holding the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons, press the SET » (Up) 


13 


button to set the display to the correct year, then release the butions. 
Depress the MONTHIDATE button. The display will change from Time ĉo 
‘Month/Date’ (MM/DD). 

While holding the MONTH/DATE button, press the SET > (Up) bution to set 
the display to the correct Month and Date. The Day indicator will change 
automatically as you adjust the Month/Date settings. When the correct Month 
and Date appear on the display, release the buttons. 

Depress the TIME button and the SET > (Up) button to set the display to the 
correct Time. Be sure to confirm that you have set the time correctly to “AM or 


‘PM’ by observing the AM indicator. 
After you set the time, reconfirm that the Day, and Month/Date displays are sil 


correct. Make final adjustments if necessary. 
The SmartSet® clock memory is now reset and the new lithium battery will maintain 


it for the next 5 years, depending on the number and duration of the power out- 
ages you experience. 


IMPORTANT NOTE 
After resetting the clock, don’t forget to reset your wake up times, and alarm 


mode settings, and sleep timer settings as well. 


CARE AND MAINTENANCE 


Care Of Cabinets 

If the cabinet becomes dusty, wipe it with a soft cloth. If the cabinet becomes 

smudged or dirty, clean it with a soft, slightly dampened cloth.
