Question about Emerson SmartSet CKS1850 Clock Radio
You will need to manually change your time zone for a few weeks (to compensate for the schedule the unit enters and leaves DST) It's a side effect of changing DST laws.
Looking at the first three digits of your serial number, your unit was manufactured in December of 2004. Thus you need to:
Step 1 On the second Sunday in March you would have to set your clock to the next lowest number time zone.
For example: If you lived in the Eastern Time zone (Zone 2) you would then change your clock to Zone 1 to move it ahead by one hour.
Step 2 On the first Sunday in April, your clock will automatically advance by one hour. You must then set the clock back to your correct time zone.
For example if you lived in the Eastern Time zone you would set your clock back to Zone 2.
Step 3 On the last Sunday in October you would again set your clock to the next lower numbered time zone.
Step 4 On the first Sunday in November you would again set your clock back to your correct time zone.
http://www.emersonradio.com/dst.htm has the details.
There is no CLK1850 that I am aware of. The SmartSet series will let you manually adjust the minute if you press and hold the Time button and then press the up or down buttons. Shifting the time zone setting is easier than manually changing the time on those four days.
The manual for the CKS1850 is here: http://www.emersonradio.com/owners/SmartSet%20Series/CKS1850-1851_072706.pdf . Most Emerson manuals are here: http://www.emersonradio.com/owners .
I hope this helps.
