Question about Emerson Smartset Clock Radio

1 Answer

Display keeps going on and off

We were away and when we came back the display area on our Emerson Research cks3088 kept going on and off. We thought perhaps there'd been a power failure, but all other electronics in the house were fine. I unplugged and reset the clock, but it continues to go on and off. (tough for alarm time). Looking for a manual or a suggestion.

    We were away and when we came home, there was no time display showing. We tried plugging it in a different outlet, but that didn't help. The radio works, but not the display. If you press snooze, it comes on for about 10 seconds, then goes off again. We liked the clock until then.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you with a answer to your question. You must try to reset the microprocessor in the Clock/Radio. To do this you must unplug the Clock/Radio from the A/C power source.Then remove the Internal battery(CR2430). Let the Clock/Radio set without a power source for about 3 hours. This will discharge the microprocessor and reset it. After you have discharged the microprocessor,you can reinstall the internal battery. Connect the Clock/Radio to the A/C power source. The Clock/Radio's Functions should have returned to normal function. If the Clock/Radio did not return to normal function, you must replace the internal battery and again let the microprocessor discharge. After the microprocessor has discharged,put in the new internal battery and reconnect the Clock/Radio to the A/C power source. The Clock/Radio should have returned to normal function. If you are still having problem with the functions of the Clock/Radio, You will have to call Emerson Customer Support. The telephone number for the Emerson customer support is 1-800-909-1240. you can call them between the hours of 8am-4:30pm CT. Give them the make and model number of the Clock/Radio and ask them for assistance. I hope this information help you with your problems with the Clock/Radio.

You should take this Clock/Radio back for a refund or exchange. If that is not possible, try taking the battery out and unplug the Clock/Radio. Leave it set for at least an hour with no power. This will let the microprocessor discharge and reset itself. You also need to replace the battery. It is a CR2430. You can find them in most large electronic stores, large drugstores and supermarkets. Fry's electronics and Radio shack carry them. You can also buy them on line. After letting the Clock/Radio discharge for at least a hour, put the battery back in and plug it in. The functions should return to normal. If not you may have a more serious problem with the microprocessor. You can call Emerson customer support at this telephone number 1-800-898-9020 and ask them for help with the problem. I hope this information help you with your problem.

Projected image on Emerson SmartSet faulty.


You will have to call Emerson customer support for this type of repair. What happened is the display circuits have been damaged in the fall. You can call the customer support at this telephone number 1-800-898-9020 between the hours of 7am-5pm CT. Give them the make and model number of your Clock/Radio. Ask them where you can find a authorized service center in your area. Try to get a telephone number. Call the service center and ask them if they do out of warranty repairs. If they do tell them the problem you have had with the Clock/Radio. Ask them to give you a estimate of the cost including shipping and handling before having it repaired. This way you can judge whether it is worth it to repair the Clock/Radio or replace it. I hope this information help you with your problem.

Troublshooting my clock radio CKW2000 Emerson Research All Alert Clock Radio


I don't know if it work for everybody, but, I took out three of the batteries, then unplugged the radio and plugged it back in. That just left the bottom light blinking, I then pressed the power button on and back off. I had to reset time and date, but it got rid of the flashing lights.

Troublshooting my clock radia CKW2000 Emerson Research All Alert Clock Radio


I had the same problem...I removed the clock from the power source and took out all the batteries. I then put them all back in and plugged it back up. The lights stopped flashing! I did have to reprogram the date and time but all the county codes and defeated siren preferences were saved! Definately worth it.

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).

Daylight Savings Times Changed


Directions for Resetting the Daylight Savings Time (DST) Start & End Dates on the Emerson Research Smartset Dual Alarm Clock Radio (cks5055s):
  • This should work for all Smartsets, but I cannot make the guarantee (and no, I don't have any other directions, sorry)!
  • Adjusting the DST Start Date on an Emerson Research Smartset:
    1. Depress & hold the MONTH/DATE and the ALARM1 buttons (at the same time). After 3 seconds the display will show the DST 'start' month, week, and date. It should be alternately showing "4 F" (April and first week week) and "4. 1".
    2. While still holding the MONT/DATE and the ALARM1 buttons, press the DOWN (or "-") button 3 times, until the display is showing "3" (March) and the week as "F2". It should alternately flash "3 F2" and "3. 11".
    3. After this is set, the clock should "automatically" reset itself
  • Adjusting the DST End Date on an Emerson Research Smartset:
    1. Depress & hold the MONTH/DATE and the ALARM2 buttons (at the same time). After 3 seconds the display will show the DST 'end' month, week, and date. It should be alternately showing "10 L" (October and last week week) and "10. 28".
    2. While still holding the MONT/DATE and the ALARM1 buttons, press the UP (or "+") button 1 time, until the display is showing "11" (November) and the week as "F". It should alternately flash "11 F" and "11. 4".
    3. After this is set, the clock should "automatically" reset itself
One thing to note, if you ever have to change the lithium backup battery for the Smartset clocks, it will revert back to it's factory defaults and you'll have to go through his all over again.
