Here's the link where you can download the manual.

I think it will be easier for you to read their directions than for me to try to explain this.

I hate to beg, but so many people don't rate solutions. We don't get paid for this we just like trying to help. If you found this information helpful I hope you'll take a moment to rate this solution.

Directions for Resetting the Daylight Savings Time (DST) Start & End Dates on the Emerson Research Smartset Dual Alarm Clock Radio on CKS1850


Unfortunately, you can't reset the firmware of the clock for those built before Jan 2006; you can work-around the issue. You will need to change time zones for the few weeks between the current daylight savings start and end dates and the ones that were built into the clock. For details see: http://www.emersonradio.com/dst.htm ; click on the link for Group 1.

If the unit was built before Jan 2006 (the serial number will start with a value less than 6), switch the time zone to the next one further east on the second Sunday of March, then set it back to your correct time zone on the first Sunday of April. Repeat this on the last Sunday of October and the first Sunday of November. (If you are in the Eastern time zone (zone 2), set the switch to zone 1.)

If the unit was built between Jan 2006 and July 2006 (serial numbers that start 601 to 606), then you can change the start and end dates for DST. See: http://www.emersonradio.com/dst.htm then choose the Group 2 link. Press and hold the Alarm 1 button then press the Month/Date or Calendar button. After three seconds the unit will display the start date for daylight savings. Press and hold the Alarm 1 and Month/Date or Calendar buttons. When the display is flashng (within 5 seconds from the press and hold step), press the Down or Set button (depending on the SmartSet mode) three times until the display reads 3 and F2 (alternating with the date of that Sunday).

For the end date, press and hold Alarm 2 then press the Month/Date or Calendar button. Then press and hold Alarm 1 and the Month/Date or Calendar button. Again within 5 seconds, press the Up button or Set until the display shows 11 and F.

If the display stops flashing, repeat and set the new dates faster.

You'll have to repeat this is the battery is removed or replaced.

I hope this helps.

Need to change the time


You weren't precise if the change was due to Daylight Savings Time or just a general need to change the time so I'm giving you the complete set of instructions for changing the time

Setting the Time
Note: Use 24 hour and 60 minute format when setting the time.
For example: 2:00 pm = 14:00.
1. To make changes to your clock’s time setting, you must first put the clock into Program mode. See
section Accessing Program Mode to Update Calendar, Time and DST for instructions. When the
display flashes P1 dAtE, press the ◄ left button until P2 CL oc appears, then press the ● right
button.
2. Press the ◄ left button to choose 12-hour AM/PM display or 24-hour military time, then press the ●
right button.
3. Press the ◄ left button until the correct hour appears, then press the ● right button.
4. Press the ◄ left button until the correct minutes appear, then press the ● right button.
5. When the display flashes the correct time, press the ● right button.
6. The display flashes P2 CL oc again. To make changes to the DST start date or DST end date, press
the ◄ left button one time until P3 BDLE appears in the display and continue to How to Set the
Begin Date for DST. Otherwise, press the ◄ left button several times until END appears, and select
the ● right button to save your updated settings.
How to Disable DST
To disable Daylight Saving Time, set the DST beginning date equal to the ending date (i.e., DST begin
date = 08-03-09; DST end date = 08-03-09).
See next for details regarding setting the DST begin date and end date. Typically, clocks operating in
Arizona, Hawaii and Puerto Rico do not observe DST, and disabling the DST function typically applies to
those areas only.
By default, and unless otherwise modified, DST takes effect on the first Sunday in April and ends on the
last Sunday in October (this was the United States standard through 2006).
How to Set the Begin Date for DST
Note that in 2007 the standard for DST changes to a different start date and end date. The steps below
correct the change in the new start date for DST. The new start date and end date need only be changed
once, since the clock’s rolling calendar function auto-calculates the start date and end date for DST every
year thereafter.
Note that if the begin date for DST has passed, in addition to modifying the begin date (and end date),
you will also need to modify the time.
1. When the display flashes P1 dAtE (see earlier section Accessing Program Mode to Update
Calendar, Time and DST for instruction), press the ◄ left button until P3 bdLt appears, then press
the ● right button.
2. Press the ◄ left button until the correct year appears, then press the ● right button.
3. Press the ◄ left button until the correct month appears, then press the ● right button.
4. Press the ◄ left button until the correct date appears, then press the ● right button.
5. When the display flashes the correct year, month and date, press the ● right button.
6. When the display flashes P3 bdLt, press the ◄ left button once to select next menu option, P4
EdLt, which provides a way to set the end date of the Daylight Saving period.
Setting Daylight Savings Time for model PIX-10/15/21
Page 4 of 4
How to Set the End Date for DST
Note that in 2007 the standard for DST changes to a different start date and end date. The steps below
correct the change in the new end date for DST. The new start date and end date need only be changed
once, since the clock’s rolling calendar function auto-calculates the start date and end date for DST every
year thereafter.
1. When the display flashes P4 EdLt (see conclusion of previous section How to Set the Begin Date
for DST for instruction), press the ● right button.
2. Press the ◄ left button until the correct year appears, then press the ● right button.
3. Press the ◄ left button until the correct month appears, then press the ● right button.
4. Press the ◄ left button until the correct date appears, then press the ● right button.
5. When the display flashes the correct year, month and date, press the ● right button.
6. The display flashes P4 EdLt again. Press the ◄ left button several times until END appears, and
select the ● right button to save your updated settings.
Note: To disable the Daylight Saving Setting, set the beginning and ending date to the same date.
