Using the Emerson CKD5809C manual (also with SmartSet(tm) ), try Zone 4. TIME ZONE button: "04".

Zone 1: Atlantic Time
Zone 2: Easter Time (Default)
Zone 3: Central Time
Zone 4: Mountain Time
Zone 5: Pacific Time
Zone 6: Yukon Time
Zone 7: Hawaiian Time

As for disabling the Daylight Saving Time (DST) time change I have some guesses to try (not having one of these radios in my hand) or just skip to #4 below.
1. Manually setting the time and see if this disables the DST change.
2. Is there a Zone setting other than above? Like maybe a Zone 0? And then manually set the time.
3. Look at http://www.fixya.com/support/t236208-daylight_savings_time_adjustment for my solution there and try adjusting the DST Start to the same as DST End or DST Start and End with a month of 0 (if that is possible).
4. Or for the really desperate, change the Zone to 5 during DST and back to 4 during standard time (no worst off than with no DST auto setting.) (After I wrote this, I found an Emerson reference to no DST areas, Saskatchewan in this case, in the CKS1850C manual http://www.emersonelectronics.ca/emerson/en/product/details/2383, pg 9, and this is their solution.)

It appears that the model CKS2288B is of an old design. I bought mine four + years ago. There is an addendum for the newer models that covers reseting DST to the new dates (2007 forward). However the CKS2288b does not respond to the instrictions in the addendum.

How do I set time zone? S/N: 502 16764PH.


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 To c h a n g e t h e d e f a u l t t i m e z o n e d i s p l a y, depress the TIME ZONE button. The number "2" will appear on the display indicating that the default zone is ZONE 2, Eastern Time. Hold theTIMEZONE button and then press either the or buttons your own time zone appears on the display, then release the buttons. The clock display will change to the correct time in the time zone you selected . The clock will always return to the correct time in the zone you selected after every power interruption. http://www.emersonradio.com/resources/owner_manuals/manual_1396274206.pdf

Setting time smartset


I couldn't figure out how to change the time zone because I didn't have the manual. Here's how to change time zone:

1. On top of clock you hold down time zone button

2. Push the up or down button to change the time zone. There are 7 time zones. The clock is set at zone 2 -Eastern Standard time. My zone is 3 -Central Time - I then had to manually set the correct time -(I'm not sure why but I did that) To test if the time zone worked properly I switched the time zones and the time on the clock adjusted automatically to the associated time for that area. I, of course, moved it back to zone 3 and the correct time for central time was displayed. I am waiting to see if the time properly adjust when time the DST changes. Also, for the manual: http://www.emersonradio.com/owner_manuals_list.php?ID=157


This is the manufacturers website (Emerson) for the EZ Set clock radio. Hope this helps.

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.

To change the time zone press the "time" button, on the front the space that shows the date will change to show the time zone. With the time zone showing press the "up" or "down" button to get to the correct time zone.

Daylight savings time again


Appparently the problem could be with your location, or just that there may be a delay before time correction until the old date - check again the link to amazon i posted before - there are a couple of new reviews that discusss the daylight saving issue, also - The US clock says; "I have a radio controlled clock that receives NIST time. Will the new rules affect me? Your radio controlled clock should automatically implement the new DST rules. The WWVB broadcast contains information that tells your clock whether DST or ST is currently in effect. NIST always sends this information to agree with the current DST rules, so your clock should change automatically on the day of the change, just as it has in previous years. If the time is wrong after the DST change, make sure that your clock has recently received the time signal. Many radio controlled clocks have a synchronization indicator that will tell you if your clock has recently synchronized. If the clock isn't receiving the signal, click here for some tips on improving reception. If it has received the signal recently, check to make sure that the clock's time zone setting is set properly. Also, if you live in an area where DST is not observed (Arizona, for example), you need to disable the automatic DST function on your clock. I have a non-radio controlled clock that used to automatically correct itself for DST. Will it still work? The only way to find out is to wait and see, or to contact the manufacturer of the clock. There are a large number of non-radio controlled clocks, marketed under names like "AUTOSET" or "SMARTSET" that have internal firmware that automatically changes the time by one hour on the transition days to and from DST. These clocks do not connect to a NIST time service, and some of them will no longer work properly due to the DST rule change. For example, clocks manufactured prior to the rule change will probably not switch to DST in March, but will wait until April in accordance with the old rule. If you have a clock like this that fails due to the new rules, your only recourse is to adjust the clock manually, or to contact the manufacturer and ask for an upgrade or a replacement. If you need to contact manufacturer check http://www.emersonscott.com/ezsetamclocr.html Hope this helps:)
