1- Turn over
your Seth Thomas digital clock. Use your finger to remove the cover to
the unit's battery compartment. Insert two AA-size alkaline batteries
into the battery compartment and replace the cover. Certain Seth Thomas
digital clock units will also have an optional alternate power source in
the form of a standard AC power cable that plugs into a wall outlet in
2 Place your Seth Thomas
solar-powered digital clock in front of a light source, such as on a
window sill or beneath a lamp. The black strip on the top of the unit is
the solar sensor, so as long as light is shining down on that strip,
your clock will be powered on and ready to use. The sensor stores energy
throughout the day so that it can work at night with no direct light
contact on the sensor.
3 Press the time zone button that
indicates your current time zone. These buttons are located on the back
of the unit. For example, if you are in the eastern time zone select the
"EST" button. Turn the unit back over. It will now be displaying the
correct time on its digital screen.
4 Use the "Alarm" switch (if
applicable) to enable and disable the clock's alarm. Press the "Alarm"
button, followed by the "Hour" and "Minute" buttons, to set the
appropriate alarm time based on your needs. Use the "Alarm HI LO" switch
to set the volume for the alarm.
5 Press the "Weather" button to
tune your Seth Thomas digital clock to its built-in local weather radio
station (if applicable). Certain Seth Thomas clocks have this radio
weather functionality built in, while others don't. If yours does, the

You can try to take the battery out of the clock/radio and disconnect the plug. This will allow the microprocessor to lose power and reset itself to the factory set-up. It will take about a hour to make sure its discharged. Then put the battery back in the clock/radio and see if the functions return to normal. You can go to this web link.(http://www.emersonradio.com/owners) copy and paste this web link into the address bar of the browser and it will take you to the Emerson website with all the owners manuals listed by make and model. You can find you make and model clock/radio and follow the instructions for resetting the functions. I hope this information helps you with your problem.
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!!
press the Cancel button located on the top of the alarm clock (the light next to the wake mode indicator on the front of the clock should start flashing). Then press the WAKE Mode button on the top of the device. The wake mode indicator on the front should now be off and the alarm deactivated.
To turn the alarm back on, simply press the WAKE Mode button on the top of the device.
