Question about Emerson SmartSet CKS1850 Clock Radio
I bought an EmersonReserach SmartSet Clock Radio years ago that would automatically set the time,day,date, and month upon plugging it in. It would also switch automatically for daylight savings time, a feature I just loved!! However, now that congress passed the ruling that daylight savings time is different the clock doesn't change at the right day of the calendar. Now a clock that I never touched to correct the time I am needing to touch touch 4 different times in order to take into account when daylight savings times ends or begins because the clock looks like it doesn't have an mechanism to override the original programmed dates.
Do you know if there is anything I can do to adjust the programming to this clock to take into account the new dates of daylight savings time?? Thx!
How can I get my CKS1850 smartset clock radio to be set for the new daylight savings time and not switch again at the old daylight savings?
Can i turn of the daylight setting on my emerson smarset model cks1850

Hello fellow Emerson Research consumers! You might not want to hear the answer, but at least you will know what the deal is ...
Before the government changed DST, there was no reason for one to be able to reprogram the DST date on these clocks - so the pre-2007 alarm clocks are hard fixed and cannot be changed or disabled. Go buy a new alarm clock so you don't have to deal with the hassle every year - I missed an important appointment because of it and would much rather have paid $20 for a new alarm clock which I will be doing this week! Better late than never.
After the government changed DST Emerson added a user feature to be able to change the weeks on the newer clock radios which you can find some support for on the web (basically holding the Month/Date button and either the Alarm 1 or 2 buttons, plus pressing + or - to change, but look up the official instructions for your model). If the serial number of your model begins with a 7 or an 8, you can probably reprogram the DST week.
Hope this helped!!
