Question about Emerson CKA1000 Clock Radio

1 Answer

I have a model CKA-1000 with the 20 ne problem. Last night I pressed the time zone button like it said in the forum and the correct time popped up. This morning, however, it was back at 20 ne. I again pressing the time zone button and the time came up, but only for about 30 seconds or so. I pressed it again and I got some horizontal bars which lasted about a minute before 20 ne came back ( assume because it was trying to pick the time from Boulder during the day). This clock has worked well and in the same position within the house until now. Any ideas?

Hi,

It is asking for the time signal.Try moving the clock/radio to another area in the house. The atomic clock will pick up the signal from Boulder, Colorado is on a frequency of 60 kHz. Unfortunately house current 120 volt is also 60 kHz and may be interfering with the signal.

Hope this manual will help you out solving the problem
The CKA1000 series will have same manual.So you can use this manual for reference.

    House current is 60 Hz NOT 60kHz! Only off by 3 orders of magnitude!

I bought my new canon eos 60D..i put on external flsah to use..then after i take off the external flash, my camera's built in flash cannot pop up to take flash even i had press the flash button. How?


Hi, What external flash did you use on your Canon 60D? The internal flash will not automatically pop up if in the "Creative Zone" it will pop up with the button in the creative zones (M, AV, TV and P) it will not pop up with the button if you are in the the full auto mode (that's the little green box mode) but, should pop up automatically if required. The flash should pop up automatically in the basic zone for Portrait, close up and night photography, the button won't activate (pop up) the flash. Also the internal flash will not pop up if there is an accessory in the hot shoe. Again what external flash was it you used and did it flash?

Change time zone


To change the time zone press and hold the time zone button until the number after the Z in the display flases and then release the button (number will still be flashing) and then press the same buttoon and you will see the Z number change to the zone you need. The zones are printed on the top of the clock under the top lid that pops up. My problem is we are in daylight savings time and I cannot get the Eastern Time zone to let me "spring ahead one hour" for daylight saving time!

My cka 1000wants to display 20 ne most of the time.


The manual recommends pushing the time / set middle large button once or twice. Have the antenna as far away from the clock as possiable. In the NE NY & Boston it make take a few days due to weak signal. It helps if the antenna is by a non metal window sill. If that doesn't work put it on the west side of a house and after a few days it will set. After pressing the button one of 4 dashes will appear in the display. This means it has confirmed the signal and the clock will set. ( I just found my missing manual and reset it all myself).

How do I set a LaCrosse WT-961 (B) watch?


This watch automatically sets itself. I you live in the eastern time zone, you just have to wait for the watch to receive the signal then it will set itself to the correct time & date. The signal is strongest at night between the hours of 10:00 pm & 2:00 am so it normally takes over night to set. Sometimes the weather interferes with the signal so I tell people to give them a couple of days to pick up. Also if you are having trouble receiving the signal try placing the watch by a window. If you do not live in the eastern time zone try these instructions:

Hold down the button for 2 seconds until the time zone abbreviation & zone flash the keep pressing the button until your correct time zone is displayed. Then wait about 8 seconds for the watch to return to normal display. Then you just have to wait until it picks up the signal & sets itself. I hope this helps.
