This Clock/Radio has had a problem with component failure. Since Emerson doe not support out of warranty repairs, you will not be able to get it repaired. Due to the low production cost of these short production run products, parts and service information are usually available to the manufacturer and service centers only. This mean that there is no parts and service information for independent repair shops. Even if you could get it repaired it would cost more than purchasing a new Clock/Radio. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day.

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. ( 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.

I have an Emerson Smartset radio model cks1862 and cannot get the alarm to go off everyday. I already did everything the manual said to do to no avail. Any suggestions?

You will have to reset the Clock/Radio's microprocessor. To do this you have to unplug the Clock/Radio from the a/c outlet and remove the internal battery (CR2430). You must let the microprocessor completely drain by leaving it with out a power source for at least 2 hours. Then you can put the internal battery back in and plug in the Clock/Radio. Test and see if the functions have returned to normal. If they have not reset to normal functions, you then should replace the internal battery. Let the microprocessor drain of power again for at 2 hours and put in the new battery and test it again. It should return to normal function. If you are still having a problem, you may have a more serious problem with the microprocessor. The Emerson customer support telephone number is 1800-695-0098 you can call between the hours of 7am-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 your Clock/Radio's alarm problem.

Emerson smart set clocks

Sorry it took so long to give you a answer to your problem. I hope this information help you with your problem. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day! 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.
