Question about Audio Players & Recorders
It was working fine until i unplugged it briefly and now it just comes on tries to set the time/date but then goes off, process then keeps repeating. Any help will be greatly appreicated?
Do you happen to see the "Low Bat" indicator on?
It may be worth trying to leave the unit powered off for a long time (= several minutes) and then retry.
You may try this over after removing and re-installing the battery (behind the cover with a screw on the bottom of the unit).
The battery is a frequently used CR2032 lithium cell, which you can find in many stores.

The Daylight Saving dates appear to be hard-coded per the manual:
• Start of Daylight Saving Time:
At 1:59.59 AM on the first Sunday in April, the clock will automatically advance to 3:00 AM.
• End of Daylight Saving Time:
At 2:59.59 AM on the last Sunday in October, the clock will automatically reset to 2:00 AM.
So the easiest thing to do is to change your time zone up or down one for the period between the new DST date and the old -- or you can buy a new SmartSet for about $15. The newer ones do not have the same problem.

There is a solution for this already. You can reprogram the clock to use the new DST settings.

Slide the switch with a lock, wake 1, wake 2 and clock to the clock position. Using the backwards and forwards buttons get time to the correct time. When correct time is reached, slide the switch to the lock position. Time will now be set.
