Question about Emerson Smartset Clock Radio

Emerson Smartset Clock Radio

I have had this clock radio for about 2 years now. At times it will show only part of the numbers and the radio will not work. I have unplugged it and then plugged it back in and still doesn't work. But if I unplug it for a day or two and then plug it back in I have to set the time and the radio will begin working again. What is the problem?

Problem was solved. When clock was plugged in after a few more days, it finally stopped flickering and reported an incorrect time and day. Low battery was now blinking! Checked calendar and found all memory was lost. Purchased and installed a new battery and this time when clock was plugged in it correctly set itself! Fixed.

For the Clock/Radios that are having problems with the clock display and settings. You will have to reset the Clock/Radio's microprocessor. To do this you must unplug the Clock/Radio from the wall outlet and remove the internal battery. You must let the Clock/Radio set with no power for at least 1 hour to discharge the microprocessor circuits. The microprocessor should then be able to reset itself. You can then reinsert the battery and plug the Clock/Radio into the a/c wall outlet. The functions should have reset and be working normally. If this does not solve the problem, try putting in a new battery (CR2430). Before putting in the new battery, unplug the clock radio and remove the old battery and let it set again for a few hours this time to try to reset the microprocessor. If this does not solve the problem (This includes the person with the complete Clock/Radio operation failure) you can call the Emerson customer support at this telephone number 1-800-898-9020. Give them the make and model number of the Clock/Radio. Tell them the problems you are having with the operation of the Clock/Radio and ask them for assistance. I hope this information helps you solve the problems your are having with your Clock/ Radios.

You will need to try some combination of the set button and time button to change the time back to normal time. Try hold both the time and set button for a period of 5-10 seconds and see if this will cycle the time to normal. If not try hold the set button alone for 5-10 seconds and see if this works. If not try holding the time time button for 5-10 seconds and see if that works. If none of the fixes work. Call Emerson customer support at this telephone number 1-800-898-9020 between the hours of 9am-5pm CT. Tell them the make and model number of your Clock/Radio and ask them for assistance with your problem of resetting the time back to normal from military time. They will be able to help you. I hope this information helps you solve your problem.

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.

Daylight Saving Time Changes for SmartSet Clock/Radios


Dear Emerson SmartSet® Clock/Clock Radio Owner:
Your Emerson SmartSet® Clock or Clock Radio includes Emerson’s patentedAuto Time Setting System that
automatically sets the clock to the correct year, month, date, day and time, the first time that you plug it in, and
after every power interruption. It also includes a built-in long life lithium battery that can maintain the time and
alarm settings for up to 5 years, or even longer.
As an added benefit we have programmed the internal SmartSet® computer to automatically adjust for Standard/
Daylight Saving Time changes through the year 2097. TheDaylight Saving Time information programmed into
all SmartSet® models was based on the United States Uniform TimeAct of 1966, which formalized theDaylight
Saving Time period that we observe today. CurrentlyDaylight Saving Time begins on the first Sunday in April
and ends on the last Sunday in October.
The new Energy Bill that was signed into law by President Bush in August 2005 includes a provision to
extend Daylight Saving Time. Beginning in 2007 Daylight Saving Time will begin on the second Sunday in
March and end on the first Sunday in November.
Of course this is a situation that is beyond the control of Emerson, or any other company that produces
devices with an automaticDaylight Saving Time adjustment feature. For example most computers, PDA’s, and
many other devices also have automatic DST adjustments. Manufacturers of these devices must now begin to
make adjustments to the automatic DST software to agree with the new DST timing for 2007.
Beginning in 2007 the current automatic DST default settings in this device would no longer be correct. It
would then be necessary for you to manually adjust the TIME ZONE setting 4 times each year as follows:
1.) On the second Sunday in March you would have to set your clock to the next lower number time zone.
For example if you lived in the Eastern Time zone (Zone 02) you would then change your clock to Zone
1 to move it ahead by one hour.
2.) On the first Sunday in April, this clock will automatically advance by one hour. You must then set the
clock back to your correct time zone. For example if you lived in the Eastern Time zone you would set
your clock back to Zone 02.
3.) On the last Sunday in October you would again set your clock to the next lower numbered time zone.
4.) On the first Sunday in November you would again set your clock back to your correct time zone.
Instructions for changing the Time Zone setting are found in the Owner’s Manual.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause due to circumstances that are beyond our control.

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,

My Emerson clock radio was manufactured in 2001. Model #CKS2000N; S/N10339233BA. Need to set clock for DST. I do not have a "month" year button - only a "time" year button. Can you help? Thank you


For this model Clock radio you will have to call Emerson Customer support at this telephone number.1-800-909-1240 between the hours of 8am-4:30pm CT. Tell them the make and model number of your Clock/Radio and ask them for assistance. You will probably be told that,your Clock/Radio has no updating feature. This is because at that time there was no need for such a feature. The best way to get the new features is to buy a new Clock/Radio. Thank you for using FixYA and have a nice day.
