You are right on, the clock is using the 50 hertz to keep time expecting it too be 60 hertz.

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.

Won't to set the clock to display time for jamaica on my computer


Right-click on the time.
In the list left-click on - Adjust Time/Date

In the - Date and Time Properties - window, click on the -
Time Zone - tab.

At the top the time zone will be shown, that is presently being used.
Click on the blue Down Arrow to the right of it.

Now,.......
From a World perspective Jamaica is to the right of Florida a little, and of course below it.
In-between North America and South America,

http://www.mapsofworld.com/jamaica/jamaica-location-map.html

(Watch out as the website tried to put a 'pop-up' on me.
Firefox smacked it to the curb! )

It is Greenwich Meantime - 5:00

http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/time-zone/caribbean/jamaica/time-jamaica/

This would lead me to believe that Jamaica is in the same timeline, as -> (GMT-5:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)

This is what I would click on.

Then go below to the Right, and click on Apply.
Finally go below to the Left, and click on OK.

Regards,

Minute hand on atomic clock keeps moving


Take the battery out and put it back in the opposite direction. Wait 5 seconds. Put it back in the correct position. The minute hand will go around very fast and eventually come to a stop. This can take a couple days. That means it is waiting for a radio signal from Colorado. For a better signal, place the clock in a window that is facing Colorado. The minute hand will begin to spin very fast until it stops at the correct time. Again, this could take up to 2 days.

Sony IFC-218 clock radio runs 8-9 minutes fast


Hold the 'Clock' button until the display flashes. It will first show the year, next press on 'Clock' with show the month, then the day, then the time. Use + and - to set your time and press 'Clock' again.

Don't expect this clock to set the time by itself. It is not an atomic clock.

Don't know how to set alarm(s) on a sunbeam digital LED alarm clock model #C38. Can you help??


It's very easy to do. First, make sure the 2 little slider switches on the far right hand side that turn the alarms on and off, are in the "down" off position.
On that clock, just to the right of the large snooze button there are 5 small square buttons. Time, Fast, Slow, Alarm set 1, Alarm set 2.
Depending on which alarm you want to set, hold down that button and simultaneously push either the "fast" or "slow" button to the left of it. The numbers will move forward fast or slow depending on which button you're pressing. Keep an eye on the upper left corner to determine when you've gone past 12 noon - as the indicator for PM will light up.
Keep holding down the 2 buttons until you get to the time you want. Then immediately release the fast/slow button. Your time is set. Do the same for alarm 2 if needed. When finished, flip up the switch for the alarm you want to activate, and you're good to go. Piece of cake! It took me a few minutes to figure it out; but after doing it one time...it's easy. Hope that helps.
I love this old Sunbeam clock. Only problem is the alarm is not very loud and there's no way to raise the volume - short of connecting wires to the speaker and using a powered speaker. Cheers!

I have a clock that will not get correct time. I have no way yo set it . Model #44100 Equity.


All Equity Insta-Set clocks automatically set the correct time and date when you turn on the power. Occasionally, the automatic time-setting feature malfunctions and you must reset the time yourself. Manually changing the time to the correct time on an Equity Insta-Set clock requires the push of only a few buttons to get the clock back on track:

1. Press and hold the "Alarm Set" button for five to seven seconds, the year will begin to blink when the clock is ready for adjustment.
2. Set the year by pressing the right-arrow, "Up" or "+" button, depending on your model of clock
3. Set the month, day, hour and minute. Press the "Alarm Set" button to cycle through each field, and use the "Up," "+" or right-arrow button to adjust the values within each field.
4. Press the "Alarm Set" button after setting the date and time to store the information into your clock's memory.
Best regards,

Turn the system on and press the "Clock/Timer" button (located above the eject button for Deck 1). The clock will appear. To change the time, simply hold down either the < or > buttons (the ones you use to change radio stations and begin CD/tape playback). Press "Clock/Timer" again to lock in the time.
