Question about Emerson Smartset Clock Radio

2 Answers

Emerson SmartSet AM/FM Clock Radio Model No. CKS3020 Suffix B, S/N:70818999PH about 2 years old that displayed incorrect time about 1 to 1 1/2 weeks ago. I removed the lithium battery and read a message on the reverse side of the battery holder stating that the new battery should be replaced as soon as possible after removing the battery. I reinserted the old battery and kept it until today when I took it to Ace Hardware where the salesman took a battery out of the package, opened the battery section, removed the battery, and replaced it with a new one in two minutes flat. But unfortunately after plugging in the clock it still records an incorrect time. Since there is no way to adjust the time I don't know what to do. Will the Manual help me to solve the problem or must I send the clock back to the factory. From what I have read online it seems that this Emerson product is a loser. Please let me know if you can help me.

    This solution doesn/t work because there is no button nor anything marked "clock" nor "hour" on the above model, which is the reason I am unable to set the time. The buttons on the top are labeled "Radio on/off", "sleep", "alarm mode", "calendar", "time zone", "Alarm 1", "Alarm 2", "set". Sorry I wasn't clear about that above by stating "Since there is no way to adjust the time I don't know what to do. On this model the time is set by satelite once a day, only the alarm buttons can be set.



    If the Expert who posted the comment has no other solution to offer I would like another Expert to offer something.



    Thenk you in advance.

    In my first email I didn't state the clock doesn't have a button marked "clock", "hour",
    or "minute". The buttons on the top of the clock: "radio", "sleep" "alarm", "calendar","time", "time zone", "alarm 1", "alarm 2", "set"
    This model clock time is supposed to be set by sattelite once each day, therefore no buttons and I am seeking a way to set it so I don't have to discard it.

    If the Expert who offered this solution has a different solution to offer I would appreciate it but if not I would like you to ask an other Expert.

CKS3020
Manual Time Adjustments Some people like to set their clocks 5 to 10 minutes fast to make sure that they will always be on time. Even though the SmartSet ® sets the time by itself, you still have the option of adjusting the time manually if you wish. To manually adjust the time display depress and hold the TIME button, and press either the SET (Up) or (Down) buttons to adjust the time display ahead or back as desired. Each press of the SET (Up) or (Down) buttons will change the display by one minute. If you hold the SET (Up) or (Down) buttons the display will continue to change. The display will change slowly at first, one minute at a time. But if you continue holding the SET (Up) or (Down) buttons the display will change rapidly. NOTE: If you manually adjust the time, your new setting is entered into the SmartSet ® memory. If the power is interrupted, the display will return to your new setting, not the original setting, when the power is restored.

To set the time you have to press the clock button and the hour button for to set it ..and after that same with the minute button ..
In the manual it says something about getting in the click setting mode when you power it on after plugging it ..so ..if you remove any power source and put them back ..it will probably get in the mode again ..

Procedure For Setting Time Zones For Emerson Clock Radios


Setting The Time, The First Time
IMPORTANT: The first time you connect your new SmartSet® clock radio to
the AC outlet the internal computer will automatically set the time correctly for
the Eastern Time Zone, which is the initial default setting. The display will
scan for a few seconds and then show the correct Day and Time in the Eastern
zone. If you live in the Eastern Time zone, there’s nothing else to do. Your
clock is set correctly and running.
If you do not live in the Eastern Time zone you must change the default zone
display to your own zone. You only do this one time and the SmartSet® will remember
the new default zone setting and will always return to that setting after a power
interruption.
There are 7 time zones programmed into your SmartSet® clock radio as follows:
ZONE 1 — Atlantic Time
ZONE 2 — Eastern Time (Default Setting)
ZONE 3 — Central Time
ZONE 4 — Mountain Time
ZONE 5 — Pacific Time
ZONE 6 — Yukon Time
ZONE 7 — Hawaiian Time
To change the default time zone display, depress the Time Zone button.
The number “02” will appear on the display
indicating that the default zone is ZONE 2,
Eastern Time

I have the emerson smartset clock radio. model cks1702. i need the mannuel so i can set it to go off through the week


There are several SmartSet clock Radios by Emerson. Which model do you have?

It's possible that you have alarm 1 and alarm 2 both set for weekends (if a two-alarm version). For the SmartSet radio, CKD5811, that I am used to, you can change the alarm mode between Everyday, Weekdays and Weekends. Press and hold the Alarm 1 (or Alarm 2) button then press the Alarm Mode button to toggle between the modes. Then release both buttons. If you press the Alarm 1 button, you will see the current alarm mode indicated by the indicators by the day that are lit. The Alarm Mode button is between the On/Off button and the Alarm 1 and 2 buttons on the CKD5811. Make sure that you have the Wake to Radio, Wake to Buzzer or Wake to CD slide set for the alarm in question. For Wake to Radio, set your station. For Wake to CD, make sure that the CD in the unit is one that actually plays in the unit (scratches, etc). Also check the volume (although that seems like less of a concern since it does wake you on weekends).

The manual for the CKD5811 is here:
http://www.emersonradio.com/resources/owner_manuals/manual_1312917117.pdf . Additional manuals are here: http://www.emersonradio.com/owner_manuals.php . Scroll down in the drop down menu for the SmartSet manuals (clock radios all start CKD). The manuals are in alphabetical order.

I hope this helps.

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.

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.
