Smartset cd alarm clock radio-no working alarms

I have had this radio for two years and suddenly neither the radio alarm works nor does the buzzer alarm. The rest of the radio is fine.

Any ideas?

    My Emerson has dule alarm feature. I use alarm 1. I have it set for 5:00 AM. It worked on December 20, 2008 and woke me so I could catch a 6:00 AM flight. I returned home on December 28, 2008, set my alarm but it did not go off and I missed an appointment. I tried to set the alarm several times but it will not go off. Any suggestions?

I had this same problem. I removed the battery and then unplugged it for about a half an hour. When I plugged it back in, I had to reset the date, time, year, time zone and alarm times, but the alarms now work!!

I have the emerson smartset clock radio. model cks1702. i need the mannuel so i can set it to go off through the week


There are several SmartSet clock Radios by Emerson. Which model do you have?

It's possible that you have alarm 1 and alarm 2 both set for weekends (if a two-alarm version). For the SmartSet radio, CKD5811, that I am used to, you can change the alarm mode between Everyday, Weekdays and Weekends. Press and hold the Alarm 1 (or Alarm 2) button then press the Alarm Mode button to toggle between the modes. Then release both buttons. If you press the Alarm 1 button, you will see the current alarm mode indicated by the indicators by the day that are lit. The Alarm Mode button is between the On/Off button and the Alarm 1 and 2 buttons on the CKD5811. Make sure that you have the Wake to Radio, Wake to Buzzer or Wake to CD slide set for the alarm in question. For Wake to Radio, set your station. For Wake to CD, make sure that the CD in the unit is one that actually plays in the unit (scratches, etc). Also check the volume (although that seems like less of a concern since it does wake you on weekends).

The manual for the CKD5811 is here:
http://www.emersonradio.com/resources/owner_manuals/manual_1312917117.pdf . Additional manuals are here: http://www.emersonradio.com/owner_manuals.php . Scroll down in the drop down menu for the SmartSet manuals (clock radios all start CKD). The manuals are in alphabetical order.

I hope this helps.

How do I set the alarm so it will activate on weekdays. It only works for Saturday and Sunday. Thanks


Hello

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.

1.) Depress and hold either the ALARM 1 or ALARM 2 setting button.

The display will change from the correct time
to the Alarm 1 or Alarm 2 wake up time.

2.) While holding the ALARM 1 or ALARM 2 setting button, depress either the

SET + or - button to move the display ahead or back to your desired wake up
time.

3.) When the desired wake up time appears on the display, release the SET + or

- buttons.

Note: Be sure that you have set the wake up time correctly by observing

the AM indicator. If the AM indicator is 'On'the wake up time is "AM". If the
AM indicator is 'Off', the wake up time is "PM".

4.) When the desired wake up time (AM or PM) appears on the display, release
the ALARM 1 or ALARM 2 setting buttons

I lost my manual in moving and not sure how to set the alarm. It worked a couple of times and then didn't.


There are several SmartSet units by Emerson. The manuals are here: http://www.emersonradio.com/owners/SmartSet%20Series/ .

For the CKS2000N, you set the alarm by pressing Alarm 1 or Alarm 2 (both are on the top, one to the left and the other to the right) then hold the button while you use the up or down arrows to adjust the wake time. Press and hold the Alarm 1 or Alarm 2 button and then press the Alarm Mode button to select the days of the week you want that alarm to ring (Weekdays, Weekends or Everyday).
Finally set the Alarm selector (on the left side at the back) switch for each alarm to Radio, Buzz or Off. If the alarn selector is off, the alarm will not ring.

I hope this helps.

Daylight savings time changes at wrong date on my brookstone 'smartset' alarm clock. (It changes at the old date, of course - so it is wrong 4 times a year...)


The DST schedule is hardwired into the older clocks and cannot be modified to run on the new schedule. If the clock has a DST switch, you can can turn it OFF and reset the clock only twice a year. On my old "ATOMIC" clock, I've set the DST function OFF, and I use the time zone switch for my adjustments. Sorry, but your only other choice is a new clock.

Alarms


[http://www.emersonradio.com/owners/iPod%20Series/iC200_NCab050307.pdf] Copy this web link and paste it into the address bar of your browser. It will take you to the Emerson customer support web page of a pdf copy of the owners manual for your Clock/Radio. You can use the print function to make a pdf copy of the manual for your own use. To increase the sound of the buzzer in the alarm you will need to exchange the internal battery for a new battery. The buzzer works on this battery power alone. The model of the battery (CR2430) and how to replace it are in the owners manual on pages 41-44. If this fix doe not solve the problem you are having with the weak buzzer. You can call the Emerson customer support at this telephone number 1-800-898-9020. Between the hours of 9am-5pm CT. Give them the make and model number of your Clock/Radio and ask them for assistance with your problem. I hope this information helps you with the problem of the weak buzzer sound on the alarm of your Clock/Radio.

Need to turn alarm function off on a Timex T301B clockradio


there are 3 buttons just above the above the LCD clock - Alarm Set, Radio, and Buzzer. When you press the Radio button you will see the word "radio" appear/disappear just below the time with each press of the button. You want to press this button to make the word "Radio" disappear. The same is true for the Buzzer button. Press the Buzzer button so that the word "Buzzer" does NOT appear below the time. If you do not see the word Buzzer or Radio below the time, then the Radio Alarm and the Buzzer Alarm are both OFF and will not sound.

Changing between the buzz and cd setting for alarm clock


From the manual (miraculously, I still have it)...

To switch the alarm sound between buzzer, church bells, radio or CD, press MODE one time, and then press REPORT.

If CD is selected, press TUNING up (>>+) or down (-<<) to select desired wake-up track.

When alarm sounds, press ALM ON/OFF to silence alarm and reset it for the next day.

SNOOZE-BOOST

To postpone the alarm once it sounds, press SNOOZE/LIGHT. Each press of this button will add 10 minutes to the postponement time. (Pressing three times will give you a 30-minute delay).
