Question about RCA RP5430 Clock Radio

Can't change clock to eastern standard time

This particular clock (RCA RP5430 Clock Radio) automatically sets the time.  It does not have a manual intervention.  I have read the instruction manual; taken the batteries out and put back in hoping that would reset the time; moved the daylight savings time switch back and forth and still it's the wrong time, since the time changed last weekend.  For example, it's now 6:14 p.m.; the clock says 7:14 p.m., and if I move the daylight savings time switch it says 8:14 p.m.  any ideas?  thanks,  Dorothy

You can change the time zone. Push the time zone button until the correct time is displayed.

Looks like this clock has internal batteries that need replacing every 2-3 yrs.(See "auto-clock set" under "clock".

Hope this helps.

How do you set the alarm for pacific standard time on the emerson


Here is the procedure for setting the time zones for your Clock/Radio. 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) ZONE 3 ? Central Time ZONE 4 ? Mountain Time ZONE 5 ? Pacific Time ZONE 6 ? Yukon Time ZONE 7 ? Hawaiian Time To change the default time zone display, depress the Time Zone button. The number ?02? will appear on the display indicating that the default zone is ZONE 2, Eastern Time I will give you the web link for the owners manual so you can find any other information you might need for your Clock/Radio. (http://www.emersonradio.com/owners/iPod%20Series/iC200_042007.pdf) copy this web address and paste it in the address bard of your browser and it will take you to a pdf copy of the owners manual. I hope this information help you with your problem.

Need operating instructions for RCA clock radio Mod. 5430


The instruction manual will not help you, because it doesn't address this problem head on.  You're having this problem because the time changed, and the clock has an automatic setting.    As long as the batteries are in the clock and it's plugged up, it automatically computes the time. I just discovered the solution.  Unplug the clock, take out the batteries and WAIT about an hour.  Plug it back up, and the time will flash, allowing you to change the time.  You do this with the button on the top back which says wake up 1 and wake up 2.  Push that button all the way to the right to the setting that looks like a little clock, then press the forward button on the top of the clock to set the correct time.  Then put your batteries in and you're good to go!  (til the time changes again:)  Good luck!
