Merchsource Shift 3 Projection Alarm clock - No Battery Backup

I received this clock at Christmas, and I thought it was great until I had a power failure. Apparently the batteries in the base only work if you happen to unplug the power supply from the unit right when the power goes out. You can see the problem by just unplugging the power supply only from the wall, and then after waiting a little while, plugging it back in. The clock does not have a battery backup, but it requires batteries - Go figure!

So I have been looking and looking for their Web site and it does not exist. Does anyone have it?

I did find a phone number in the Yellow Pages, and i will try it when I can - 949-900-0900.

    yeah...i just bought it like a few minutes ago. Having battery doesn't do jack. If your power goes out, you need to redo everything, including opening and resetting the remote.

SOURCE: Shift 3 Projection Alarm clock remote cannot open

There are four small phillips head screws that hold on the back cover. Just take a small phillips screw driver, unscrew the screws, remove the cover and insert two (2) AAA batteries. My problem is that the main unit does not recieve the outside temperature from the sensor.

How do I set alarm? Instructions long gone


To the left of the display are two buttons, engraved "1" and "2". (Note, I'm NOT referring to the buttons for radio presets, which are below.)

Hold either of these buttons for a second or two to enter alarm set mode. The screen prompts will prompt you to set the time for the alarm to go off using the time set buttons to the right of the display. You can also press one of the radio preset buttons or the AUX or CD buttons to wake to one of those. Once you're done setting the alarm, quick presses of these alarm buttons turn the alarm on and off and choose between music and beeper.

As a side note, if you've installed the backup battery and the power fails during the night, the alarm will still go off with the beeper so you're not late for work -- a thoughtful touch from Cambridge Soundworks.

I need instructions for my timex clock


Hello
Here are the instructions for your clock-radio.

Installation

1* Remove unit and all packing materials from the carton. You should save packing

materials in case unit needs to be returned for service. If you do not wish to save the

materials, please dispose of them properly.

2* Place the unit on a stable, level surface, close to an AC outlet, out of direct sunlight,

and away from sources of dust, dirt, heat, water, moisture, vibration, or magnetic fields.

3* After installing the batteries (see below) and reading the Maintenance notes, plug the

AC cord into an outlet.

"Sure Alarm" Battery Backup Installation

It is strongly recommended that 2 "AA" batteries be installed into the unit, as directed below,

in order to activate this product's "Sure Alarm" Battery Backup feature. (The model should

come with two batteries already installed.) In the event that the AC power cord is disconnected

or a power failure or other interruption occurs, the "Sure Alarm" Battery Backup will maintain

clock and alarm settings for the life of the battery, ensuring that the alarm (buzzer only) will

sound at the set time. During any interruptions the time and alarm settings will be saved

and automatically restored when AC power is again active.

1* Gently turn the unit over and remove the battery

compartment door.

2. Install 2 "AA" batteries (alkaline is recommended for

longer life), while making sure that the + and - ends

match up with those inside the battery compartment.

3* Slide the battery compartment door back on, making

sure the door locks into place, and gently return the
unit to its upright position.

Hello
Just reinstall the battries and adjust the time once again.

Battery back-up operation

* This clock radio is equipped with

a memory holding system that can

be powered with 2 "AA" batteries

(included). The power failure

protection circuit will not operate

unless battery is installed.

* When normal household power

is interrupted, or AC line cord

is unplugged, the batteries will

power the clock radio to keep

track of time and alarm settings

programmed into memory.

* When the battery backup functions,

the digital display will not light,

however, the function of alarm

still occurs during the power

interruption if remaining battery

power is adequate.

* Normal operation will resume after

AC power is restored so you will not
have to reset the time or the alarm

To install batteries:

1* Remove battery compartment door

(located at the bottom of the radio)

by applying thumb pressure to the

tab on battery door and then lift
the door out and off the cabinet

2* Insert 2 AA batteries (included).
3* Replace the compartment door

Replace batteries every year.

Power is fed to the unit even

when it is not functioning. To

cut the power supply off, the
power cable must be unplugged
OK.

Which the voltage of the transformer to be replaced


Hello
Your clock has a backup battery. Battery is for time backup only.

The clock and alarm memory will

be retained during a power

interruption. During battery

backup operation, the display

will not light up, but the correct
time will be maintained internally
The mains transformer inside it will be of 10.2vAC secondary to 120VAC primary. OK.

I got the clock from my daughter and have no manual. I keep setting the time, and it keeps changing to 2 hours earlier. I think I've pretty much figured out everything else, though this is NOT intuitive.


Hi, your clock radio is an atomic clock radio... no wait you don't need your lead underwear! it receives a signal from the atomic clock and sets the time to match it, after you set the time zone and put it on auto dst you will never have to set the time again!

ENVIRONMENTAL RECEPTION EFFECTS:


The Atomic Clock obtains the accurate time with wireless technology. Same as all wireless devices, the receiving ability may be affected by, but not limited to, the following circumstances:


  • Long transmitting distance.
  • Nearby mountains and valleys.
  • Among tall buildings.
  • Near railway, high voltage cable, etc.
  • Near freeway, airport, etc.
  • Near construction site.
  • Inside concrete buildings.
  • Near electrical appliances.
  • Near computers and televisions.
  • Bad weather locally or electrical storms between you and Colorado.
  • Inside moving vehicles.
  • Nearby metallic structures.

LOCATION PRECAUTIONS:


This clock receives a radio wave much like a TV or radio. Be sure to locate it near a window or some other location where reception is good. Avoid the following locations, which can interfere with proper reception.




Synchronization signal reception can be received in Continental USA only. In other areas, you can still use this clock by making time settings manually.


QUICKSTART

  1. Place your clock in a location with optimal signal marks on the LCD.
  2. It is recommended to put the clock near a window. Please move the clock to another location if difficulty in signal reception or unstable signal marks is encountered.

Installation
Simply plug the SkyScan clock radio into any household outlet.


Battery Back-up Operation
This clock radio is equipped with alarm time memory that can be powered with a 9-volt battery (not included).When normal household power is interrupted, or the AC cord is unplugged, the battery will power the clock to keep track of the time and set alarm. When the backup battery activates, the LCD backlight is off, however, the functions of alarm and radio still operate.


To Install the Battery
  1. Remove the battery cover at the bottom of the case.
  2. Connect a 9-volt battery to the connector plug.
  3. Insert the battery in the compartment and replace the cover.
Note: An Alkaline battery is recommended. Carbon Zinc and rechargeable (nickel cadmium) batteries not recommended.

Set the Time Zone Press the SET button in sequence until you see PST(Pacific Standard Time)blinking below the time digits on the LCD. Press UP or DOWN button to select your time zone.


Daylight Savings Time
Always slide the DST switch to ON position unless the clock is used in an area without Daylight Savings Time.
**Special attention to usage in Arizona and Indiana. **Arizona and parts of Indiana do not recognize Daylight Savings Time (DST). Turn the DST off if the clock is used in these areas.

Cheers!

Shift 3 projection alarm clock cannot connect with the remote


Did you put two AAA batteries in the remote? Use a small phillips to take the cover off of it. Then hold channel on the main unit for three seconds to synch it with the remote.

Shift 3 Projection Alarm clock remote cannot open


Once the batteries are installed in the remote the temp will appear in the LED screen. Now you are ready to link signals between the main unit and the remote. Simply remove one of the two triple A batteries from the main unit and then replace. You should then see what appears to be a flashing object shaped like a kite with a tail while the two units link up. Then you should see the temp reading at the remote appear in the LED readout at the main unit. By the way there is also a very small reset at the top of the switches on the back of the main unit that can be depressed with a SMALL pointed object like a scissor point or safety pin point.
