Sorry it took so long to reply to your problem.You must try to reset the Clock/Radio's microprocessor. To do this you must disconnect the Clock/Radio from the A/C power source and remove the internal battery. Let the Clock/Radio set without any power source for about 3 hours. This should completely drain all the power from the microprocessor. After this is done, reinsert the internal battery and plug the Clock/Radio into the A/C power source. The Clock/Radio's functions should return to normal. If they do not return to normal. Unplug the Clock/Radio from the A/C power source and remove the internal battery. Replace the internal Battery (CR2430). Let the Clock/Radio again drain all the power from the microprocessor. Insert the new battery and Plug the Clock/Radio into the A/C power source. The Clock/Radio's functions should return to normal.If you should still be having problem with the functions of the Clock/Radio, you will need to call Emerson Customer Support. The telephone number for Emerson Customer Support is 1-800-909-1240. Call them between the hours of 8am-4:30pm CT.

I have Equity Time Insta-Set Model 40018. I lost the directions about how to set it. How do I get the directions? Are they available online?


Model 40018: You do not need the 9-volt battery to operate this clock.

If the display is blank when plugged into the AC outlet, unplug from AC power and remove the Insta-Set battery (lithium button cell), then plug into AC power again and manually set the Time and Date.
  • HOUR: Press and hold the DST SET button for 7 seconds until the 12:00 flashes. Use the PLUS and MINUS buttons to set the Hour. Press and release the DST button to move to the Minutes.
  • MINUTES: The Minutes will be flashing. Use the PLUS and MINUS buttons to set the Minutes. Press and release the DST SET button to move to the Month.
  • MONTH:The Month will be flashing. Use the PLUS and MINUS buttons to set the Month. Press and release the DST SET button to move to the Date.
  • DATE: TheDate will be flashing. Use the PLUS and MINUS buttons to set the Date. Press and release the DST SET button to move to the Year.
  • YEAR: The Minutes will be flashing. Use the PLUS and MINUS buttons to set the Year. Press and release the DST SET button to secure the setting in the memory.

HOW DO I SET THE TIME ON THIS CLOCK? I FOUND HOW TO MOVE THE MINUTES, BUT CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO MOVE THE HOUE.


Casocojo67,
It is a slow process, but by holding down the minute buttons, cycle past the 60 minutes and the hour will also change. Then you will need to be sure you have the AM/PM set if you want to use the alarm for the proper time.
I found our manual last night, and it is very annoying to have to spend so much time on such a minor issue. I blame designers.
good luck

Brookstone smart set alarm clock. It is about 20minutes ahead


I've noticed that manually setting the clock forward or back by any number of minutes, results in the same time offset being displayed after unplugging - plugging back in. So, if it's 9pm and you set if 5 minutes fast (9:05pm). Then unplug it and plug it back in 30 minutes later (9:30pm), the clock will maintain your setting of 5 minutes ahead of the actual time (9:35).

I like to set my clocks 5 minutes fast, just to make me always think I'm running a bit late (sure, maybe I'm a bit crazy). But this "sticky" manual setting is kind of a nice feature in my opinion. I'm wondering if it's not intentional?

Anyway, just manually set it back to the real time, and it sho

Wrong time on Emerson Smart Set clock


This is a problem with the clocks tuning crystal. Digital clocks have a crystal that is tuned to run at a certain frequency to keep the clock working correctly. These clocks have a problem with that crystal keeping the frequency locked at the correct working frequency. This problem will sometimes cause the clocks to run fast due to a running frequency higher than the regulated frequency and sometime slow due to a running frequency running lower than the regulated frequency. The only way to fix this problem is to either adjust the crystals frequency to the correct frequency and lock it. Or change the crystal. Both these types of service require tools and test equipment to fix the problem. This is usually best handled by a service center. The Emerson customer support telephone number is 1-800-898-9020. Give them the make and model number of your clock radio and ask them for assistance. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

Equity 44100 clock radio problem


Hold the Alarm Set button down for about 5-7 seconds. The year will flash. Skip the year and date by pressing Alarm Set a couple times until the time is displayed. Use the Up and Down to change, then press Alarm Set one more time to save it. This clock is ****, by the way. I run into them in hotels and it makes me nuts as well. Very non-intuitive.

On the time lost issue...there is a button battery (CR2032) in a compartment underneath. That battery keeps the internal time so when the clock is plugged in, it "instantly" sets the time. Problem is, if the internal time is set wrong, then it instantly sets the wrong display time when it it plugged in. See procedure above to correct that.

Memorex CD Clock Radio # 2863. Broken latch .. will not hold down top cover


Also have the same problem, clock sat on the night stand for a couple of years. Wife took into work to play CD's at the Christmas Party and the latch failed.

Think we may have used it once or twice as a CD player.

The black latch was easy to remove, justed open up the radio and pushed in the ears on the latch and it slipped back up into the CD compartment.

Will see if I can find something to repair it. Looked like the side cracked and a housing lost some of its side.
