Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a Shontek radio controlled clock. It ran fine for a couple of years, then the battery died. I install a new "Durcell" battery and it went through the motions of setting itself but was a few minutes wrong. I have tried it a couple of times and now it is 20 minutes wrong. Then I tried to set it manually and that worked for a few minutes then the clock tried to set itself again and is now about twent minutes wrong. I have another radio controlled clock so I know that the time is wrong. Hope you can help. CD

Your radio should have come with a receiver of some sort for the radio signals to set itself. I had this same issue with my clock when the battery in the receiver died ... try replacing this too. It took me forever to figure out what it was because I had forgotten that it had its own radio receiver ... then once I remembered it existed, I had to find it, but replacing the battery fixed the problem. Hope that helps :-)

Hello
You haven't specified nothing about your Emerson Smartset Clock Radio. Nothing is there about its model number. Yet I posts this solution before you assuming that yours' is a CKS3528 Emerson Clock radio.

There is a long life lithium battery installed in this clock radio when you buy it.

This battery can maintain the time and alarm settings for 3 to 5 years, or even

longer, so there is no need to pay for a new 9-volt battery every 6 months, as
is recommended in other clock radios with normal battery back up.
But if this lithium battery has gone down [ in terms of voltage]; the display 'L" will be there. It means that, it is time to replace this backup battery. It will be of disc type, usually used as bios setting storage, used in computers. OK.

The fuel gauge is probably fine, its the sending unit that is probably bad. As far as the radio I would run another power wire from 1 of the accessory ports on the fuse box. Just make sure you test the port so it goes on and off with your ignition. Just test the port with a light tester. Please rate answer!! Thank you

Sounds like the main power supply may have gone bad and you are strictly running off the battery. This is why it works fine for a while when you install a new battery, that is until that battery drains and gets too low. The radio won't play because it is preserving battery life. I bet you could unplug it from the wall and would get the same results. You essentially have a battery powered clock right now. To test this theory simply remove the battery, plug the clock up and see if it comes on. My guess is it will only work with the battery installed.

Radio controlled clock not working


Pretty simple: Press reset. Clock should reset within 10 minutes.
Manually set by pressing Set and holding for 5 seconds. The hands will turn. Release when they get to the correct time.

Mine quit working after a year and seems to be dead. The movement won't do anything now with a new battery.
