How can I set the time zone?


The DST is only based on GMT.

When daylight saving time (summer time) begins
The following models employ the Automatic Daylight Saving Time/Summer Time adjustment. The DST indicator in the display appears in the display at the beginning of the daylight saving time (summer time), and disappears at the end of it. Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment is based on GMT (Greenwich Mean Time).
• Summer time begins at: 1:00 AM on the final Sunday of March.
• Standard time begins at: 2:00 AM on the final Sunday of October

To cancel the Automatic DST/ Summer Time adjustment and
to set DST display manually
The Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment can be cancelled.
Press and hold DST for more than 3 seconds while the clock is displayed.
A beep sounds, and "Aut t OFF" appears in the display to show that the Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment is cancelled. The display returns to the clock.
Notes
• The change timing of Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment employed by the unit (see above) is subjected to variation by circumstances and the law in each country/region. In such a case, cancel the Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment and
set DST display manually as necessary. The customer who lives in the country/region that has not introduced the daylight saving time (summer time) must cancel Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment before using the set.
• To activate the Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment again, press and hold DST for more than 3 seconds. A beep sounds, and "Aut t On" appears in the display to show that the Automatic DST/
Summer Time adjustment is activated. The display returns to the clock.
• To change the display to the daylight saving time (summer time) manually, see "To change the display to the daylight saving time (summer time) indication."

I am having problems setting the alarms on my Emerson Smart Set clock


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.

And this conclude's Search Marketing Guru's public service announcement. :) We'll be back with relevant online marketing posts with our next posting!

Correct Time Zone


Using the Emerson CKD5809C manual (also with SmartSet(tm) ), try Zone 4. TIME ZONE button: "04".

Zone 1: Atlantic Time
Zone 2: Easter Time (Default)
Zone 3: Central Time
Zone 4: Mountain Time
Zone 5: Pacific Time
Zone 6: Yukon Time
Zone 7: Hawaiian Time

Reference:
http://www.emersonelectronics.ca/emerson/en/category/list/694
or
http://www.emersonelectronics.ca/emerson/en/product/details/2361

As for disabling the Daylight Saving Time (DST) time change I have some guesses to try (not having one of these radios in my hand) or just skip to #4 below.
1. Manually setting the time and see if this disables the DST change.
2. Is there a Zone setting other than above? Like maybe a Zone 0? And then manually set the time.
3. Look at http://www.fixya.com/support/t236208-daylight_savings_time_adjustment for my solution there and try adjusting the DST Start to the same as DST End or DST Start and End with a month of 0 (if that is possible).
4. Or for the really desperate, change the Zone to 5 during DST and back to 4 during standard time (no worst off than with no DST auto setting.) (After I wrote this, I found an Emerson reference to no DST areas, Saskatchewan in this case, in the CKS1850C manual http://www.emersonelectronics.ca/emerson/en/product/details/2383, pg 9, and this is their solution.)

Daylight savings time adjustment


Go to:
http://www.emersonelectronics.ca/emerson/en/product/details/VLJT600
or
http://www.emersonelectronics.ca/emerson/en/category/list/694

The solution appears to be common for all recent Emerson SmartSet(tm) radios (BTW it's not the clock fault, it's the law).

Remarkably Emerson foresaw this, so here we go.

Short version (may require three hands :-) )

DST start:
Press and hold MONTH/DATE and ALARM 1 buttons for at least 3 seconds until the display changes to something like "4 F" (Fourth month, First week) alternating with something like "4. 1" (April 1st, for 2007) or "4. 6" (April 6th, for 2008). While holding down the MONTH/DATE and ALARM 1 buttons, now press the DOWN or "-" Set button (3 times) until "3F2" shows (Third month, second week) alternating with something like "3.11) (March 11th, for 2007) or "3. 9" (March 9th, for 2008). Let go of all buttons and we are now half done.

DST end:
Press and hold MONTH/DATE and ALARM 2 buttons for at least 3 seconds until the display changes to something like "10 L" (Tenth month, Last week) alternating with something like "10.28" (October 28th, for 2007) or "10.26" (October 26th, for 2008). While holding down the MONTH/DATE and ALARM 2 buttons, now press the UP or "+" Set button (1 time) until "11 F" shows (Eleventh month, first week) alternating with something like "11. 4" (November 4th, for 2007) or "11. 2" (November 2nd, for 2008). Let go of all buttons and we are now done.


This should remain until either the lithium battery fails or Congress undoes its work.


BTW the Emerson addendum has a history error. The time change in the first Sunday in April and the last Sunday in October did not start in 1966, but in 1987. Before that starting in 1966 the standard was set at the last Sunday in April and the last Sunday in October. Except for 1974, when it was January 6th, 1974 (DST start) and October 27th, 1974 (DST end) and in 1975 when it was February 23rd, 1975 (DST start) and October 26th, 1975 (DST end). Before 1966, state and local governments had many different rules. Source: http://webexhibits.org/daylightsaving/e.html

Turning daylight saving time OFF


If DST is *already* set to "on" when you reset the time zone to Z-07 (Hawaii), my very recent experience is that the time *still gets adjusted back* by one hour.  Now that daylight savings time is over (at least according to the clock's pre-programmed and outdated schedule) I'm hoping that setting the time zone to Z-07 (Hawaii) will completely cancel the automatic time changes from now on.  Otherwise, I need to purchase another clock, and it won't be a Timex.

Daylight savings time again


Appparently the problem could be with your location, or just that there may be a delay before time correction until the old date - check again the link to amazon i posted before - there are a couple of new reviews that discusss the daylight saving issue, also - The US clock says; "I have a radio controlled clock that receives NIST time. Will the new rules affect me? Your radio controlled clock should automatically implement the new DST rules. The WWVB broadcast contains information that tells your clock whether DST or ST is currently in effect. NIST always sends this information to agree with the current DST rules, so your clock should change automatically on the day of the change, just as it has in previous years. If the time is wrong after the DST change, make sure that your clock has recently received the time signal. Many radio controlled clocks have a synchronization indicator that will tell you if your clock has recently synchronized. If the clock isn't receiving the signal, click here for some tips on improving reception. If it has received the signal recently, check to make sure that the clock's time zone setting is set properly. Also, if you live in an area where DST is not observed (Arizona, for example), you need to disable the automatic DST function on your clock. I have a non-radio controlled clock that used to automatically correct itself for DST. Will it still work? The only way to find out is to wait and see, or to contact the manufacturer of the clock. There are a large number of non-radio controlled clocks, marketed under names like "AUTOSET" or "SMARTSET" that have internal firmware that automatically changes the time by one hour on the transition days to and from DST. These clocks do not connect to a NIST time service, and some of them will no longer work properly due to the DST rule change. For example, clocks manufactured prior to the rule change will probably not switch to DST in March, but will wait until April in accordance with the old rule. If you have a clock like this that fails due to the new rules, your only recourse is to adjust the clock manually, or to contact the manufacturer and ask for an upgrade or a replacement. If you need to contact manufacturer check http://www.emersonscott.com/ezsetamclocr.html Hope this helps:)
