1- Turn over your Seth Thomas digital clock. Use your finger to remove the cover to the unit's battery compartment. Insert two AA-size alkaline batteries into the battery compartment and replace the cover. Certain Seth Thomas digital clock units will also have an optional alternate power source in the form of a standard AC power cable that plugs into a wall outlet in your home.

  • 2 Place your Seth Thomas solar-powered digital clock in front of a light source, such as on a window sill or beneath a lamp. The black strip on the top of the unit is the solar sensor, so as long as light is shining down on that strip, your clock will be powered on and ready to use. The sensor stores energy throughout the day so that it can work at night with no direct light contact on the sensor.

  • 3 Press the time zone button that indicates your current time zone. These buttons are located on the back of the unit. For example, if you are in the eastern time zone select the "EST" button. Turn the unit back over. It will now be displaying the correct time on its digital screen.

  • 4 Use the "Alarm" switch (if applicable) to enable and disable the clock's alarm. Press the "Alarm" button, followed by the "Hour" and "Minute" buttons, to set the appropriate alarm time based on your needs. Use the "Alarm HI LO" switch to set the volume for the alarm.

  • 5 Press the "Weather" button to tune your Seth Thomas digital clock to its built-in local weather radio station (if applicable). Certain Seth Thomas clocks have this radio weather functionality built in, while others don't. If yours does, the aforementioned "Weather" button will be located on the front of the unit.

    If your clock radio is like mine here is how it works:
    Hold down the "Alarm Set Off/On."
    While holding this button down, press on the "Hour" button until you get the time you want to wake up. Set the minutes the same way. Be careful- look at the red light to the left of the digital time to make sure it is lit up next to the " AM" spot just to the left (not digital, but usually on the radio metal or plastic itself.
    Then let go of these buttons. Go to the right-hand side and slide the button to show if you want to be wakened by the radio or a buzzer. If you want to keep on that schedule, you don't need to do anything. Just move the button to "Off" the night before a day off so you can finally sleep in!
    Hope this helps.

    How do I set the alarm? Please help! Am I supposed to do something after setting the time of the alarm? The display continues to flash the time.

    To set your alarm you should be turning your Set Control (the big round button just below the Set Day button) to Alarm 1 or 2. Once you finish setting your time you should be able to turn the Set Control back to Clock and the time should stop flashing. If this does not work you may have a defective unit which you might have to take up with your retailer.
