You can try taking the battery out and let the microprocessor discharge it charge and unlatch the switch controls function. This should take about a hour to be safe. To do this take the plug about from the wall also. The battery may be bad and need replacing. You can test the battery by putting it back in after you test the radio and clock with the a/c plug only. After the radio and clock return to normal operation. Put the battery back in and see if it work properly and all the function work. If you are still having problems replace the battery. If this does not fix the problem, you will have to call Emerson customer support at this telephone number 1-800-898-9020. Give them the model number of you clock radio and tell them the problem you are having with the failure of the front panel buttons. They will be able to tell you if there is a fix or if you have to send it in for repair. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

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 lost my manual in moving and not sure how to set the alarm. It worked a couple of times and then didn't.


There are several SmartSet units by Emerson. The manuals are here: http://www.emersonradio.com/owners/SmartSet%20Series/ .

For the CKS2000N, you set the alarm by pressing Alarm 1 or Alarm 2 (both are on the top, one to the left and the other to the right) then hold the button while you use the up or down arrows to adjust the wake time. Press and hold the Alarm 1 or Alarm 2 button and then press the Alarm Mode button to select the days of the week you want that alarm to ring (Weekdays, Weekends or Everyday).
Finally set the Alarm selector (on the left side at the back) switch for each alarm to Radio, Buzz or Off. If the alarn selector is off, the alarm will not ring.

I hope this helps.

How do you set the alarm for pacific standard time on the emerson


Here is the procedure for setting the time zones for your Clock/Radio. 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 will give you the web link for the owners manual so you can find any other information you might need for your Clock/Radio. (http://www.emersonradio.com/owners/iPod%20Series/iC200_042007.pdf) copy this web address and paste it in the address bard of your browser and it will take you to a pdf copy of the owners manual. I hope this information help you with your problem.

Time Display


A-ha! Those manuals sure do come in handy sometimes. I found the solution. In addition to functioning as a snooze button for delaying the alarm, the snooze button is also a brightness button for the time. If you press snooze one time it changes the time brightness from bright to dim, press it again and it goes from dim to motion sensitive only, press it again and it returns to bright.

I just tried this and resolved my problem. I hope it helps you as well.
Enjoy!

Daylight Savings Times Changed


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.
