In the battery compartment is a small button marked "reset". Push this in after the batteries are installed and the buttons should work. You will have to reset everything.

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.

Set clock, date, alarm on SI686 CD/ Radio / Alarm Clock with Sound Soother


Can you clarify what you need help with? To SET THE CLOCK push the "Mode" button twice. (The current time setting flashes on the display) Once it is flashing, Decrease the hours by pressing "1" Increase hours by pressing "2" Decrease minutes by pressing "3" and increase minutes by pressing "4". If no additional buttons are pressed the time will reset in about 10 seconds and the display will stop blinking.

TO SET THE DATE press the "mode" button 4 times. The current date setting will flash on the display. Decrease the date by pressing 3. Increase the date by pressing 4.

Decrease months by pressing 1. Increase the months by pressing 2. The date will reset in about 10 seconds when you stop pushing the buttons.

TO SET THE ALARM Press the "mode "button once. The display will begin to flash. Change the hours by pressing either 1 (increase) or 2 (decrease). To change the minutes, press 3 or 4. 3 decreases the minutes and 4 increases the minutes. Once you have the time reset, leave the unit alone for about 10 seconds. the display will stop blinking indicating the time has been reset.

TO ACTIVATE THE ALARM push the round button on the far right. You will see the alarm icon come on or off on the LCD display on the right side. Be sure you have set the AM or PM time correctly on the alarm time. It helps to recheck this now as I have made this mistake several times.

If you get stuck on military time and want the 12 hour clock the answer is posted on this site, as well.

Hope this helps.

How do i change from military time on a insta-set alarm model 40009?


This may or may not work. The 40009 and 40010 are almost identical. The 40009 doesn't mention military time and the 40010 does, so you might want to what the manual says. 40010 manual and 40009 manual. According the 40010 manual, is says:

Displaying the12/24 hour, Date, Month and Year:
Display the 12/24 hour by hold the "+" button for 2 seconds. To display the date, month and year by press the "-" button, the year appears and then if pressed again, the month and date (eg. “12 31” means Dec 31) appears.

So maybe that will do. I have a 40010, but my manual is different from the one on the website. Its DST button and not Alarm Set button to change the time. So maybe try holding down different buttons for a couple of second see if one lets you change it between 12 and 24 hour. Good luck, hope this helps.

T307S How to deactivate the alarms


Timex T307S
I lost my manual also so had to resort to relentless trial and error.
The problem with the alarm is that it is too easy to turn it on.
The 1 and 2 buttons on top of the unit with the alarm clock symbol turn each alarm on or off. Your only cue is on the display in the top line of the display which will have a bell followed by “RADIO” or “SOUNDS”, if the alarm is armed. If you see this symbol and want to disarm the alarm, press the 1 or 2 alarm button according to which alarm was on the display. It’s just as easy to turn the alarm back on either deliberately or accidently
Enter Alarm Setting mode by holding the 1 or 2 alarm button for about 2 seconds.
Display will flash – in this mode you will be able to do the following
Date Set Button – changes between Everyday/Mon-Fri/Sat-Sun
Arrow Buttons – adjust the time setting
Alarm 1 (Radio):
Mode Button – changes between AM/FM1/FM2
1-6 Buttons -- changes between stations
Alarm 2 (Sounds):
Mode Button – changes between SD1/SD2/SD3/SD4/Buzzer
If you don’t change any settings for about 5 seconds the unit exits the alarm setting mode.
Timex already has your money so I guess they are not motivated to publish their manual.

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.

Wrong date on the radio.


RESETTING THE CLOCK AFTER A TOTAL MEMORY LOSS

If you do not change the built in lithium battery within a reasonable period of time after you see the ‘flashing’ LOW BATT. warning indicator, the lithium battery may become exhausted and will no longer be able to supply back up power to the SmartSet internal computer.

If the unit is disconnected from the AC outlet after the battery is exhausted, or if a power interruption occurs, the SmartSet memory will be lost and the clock will need to be reset when the power is restored. Be sure to install a fresh lithium battery before you reset the clock, otherwise the clock will need to be reset each time the power is interrupted.

If the lithium battery is exhausted and you experience an interruption in the AC power supply, the clock will reset itself to its initial default setting when the power is restored.

The initial default setting is “12:00 AM, Saturday, January 1
(1 1), 2005”.

If you notice that the time on your SmartSet clock radio is completely incorrect, and the day indicator is also wrong, press the MONTH/DATE button to see the date. If the date display is showing “1 1” (January 1 ), you probably experienced
a total memory loss. To reset the clock after a total memory loss, proceed as follows:

1.) Install a new CR2430 lithium battery in the battery compartment.

2.) Connect the radio to your AC outlet and let the clock set itself.

3.) Depress the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons together. The display will change from ‘time’ to ‘year’. While holding the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons, press the UP button to
set the display to the correct year, then release the buttons.

4.) Depress the MONTH/DATE button. The display will change from ‘time’ to 'month/date’ (mm/dd). While holding the MONTH/DATE button, press the UP button to set the display
to the correct month and date. The Day indicator will change automatically as you adjust the month/date settings. When the correct month and date appear on the display, release the buttons.

5.) Depress the TIME button and the UP button to set the display to the correct time. Be sure to confirm that you have set the time correctly to ‘AM’ or ‘PM’ by observing the AM indicator.

6.) After you set the time, reconfirm that the Day, and Month/Date displays are still correct. Make final adjustments if necessary.

The SmartSet clock memory is now reset and the new lithium battery will maintain it for the next 5 to 8 years, depending on the number and duration of the power outages you experience.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
After resetting the clock, don’t forget to reset your wake up times, and alarm mode settings, and sleep timer settings as well.
