Can't set the time

Since the daylight saving time change, I can't set the time back. How do I change the time on the clock. I have no problem with setting the alarms, just the clok.

Thanks

You can disable the daylight saving time function using the DST switch. Setting the time requires you to slide the 4-position slide switch on the top rear to the right to set the time.

Daylight Saving Time Changes for SmartSet Clock/Radios


Dear Emerson SmartSet® Clock/Clock Radio Owner:
Your Emerson SmartSet® Clock or Clock Radio includes Emerson’s patentedAuto Time Setting System that
automatically sets the clock to the correct year, month, date, day and time, the first time that you plug it in, and
after every power interruption. It also includes a built-in long life lithium battery that can maintain the time and
alarm settings for up to 5 years, or even longer.
As an added benefit we have programmed the internal SmartSet® computer to automatically adjust for Standard/
Daylight Saving Time changes through the year 2097. TheDaylight Saving Time information programmed into
all SmartSet® models was based on the United States Uniform TimeAct of 1966, which formalized theDaylight
Saving Time period that we observe today. CurrentlyDaylight Saving Time begins on the first Sunday in April
and ends on the last Sunday in October.
The new Energy Bill that was signed into law by President Bush in August 2005 includes a provision to
extend Daylight Saving Time. Beginning in 2007 Daylight Saving Time will begin on the second Sunday in
March and end on the first Sunday in November.
Of course this is a situation that is beyond the control of Emerson, or any other company that produces
devices with an automaticDaylight Saving Time adjustment feature. For example most computers, PDA’s, and
many other devices also have automatic DST adjustments. Manufacturers of these devices must now begin to
make adjustments to the automatic DST software to agree with the new DST timing for 2007.
Beginning in 2007 the current automatic DST default settings in this device would no longer be correct. It
would then be necessary for you to manually adjust the TIME ZONE setting 4 times each year as follows:
1.) On the second Sunday in March you would have to set your clock to the next lower number time zone.
For example if you lived in the Eastern Time zone (Zone 02) you would then change your clock to Zone
1 to move it ahead by one hour.
2.) On the first Sunday in April, this 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 02.
3.) On the last Sunday in October you would again set your clock to the next lower numbered time zone.
4.) On the first Sunday in November you would again set your clock back to your correct time zone.
Instructions for changing the Time Zone setting are found in the Owner’s Manual.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause due to circumstances that are beyond our control.

Alarm Clock Radio

http://www.synergythesource.com/doc/alarm-clock-setup-910500.pdf


1) Plug clock in before making any adjustments.


2) If using on East Coast- Do nothing! Time and date are set to EST- Daylight Savings time is 'On". Clock is ready to use.


3) If using in time zones other than EST. Hold the clock with LCD facing you. Lean clock back and find small button on bottom right marked P-M-C-E. Hold for 2+ sec. LCD will blink the time zone. Press button again until LCD blinks the correct time zone, CST, MNT, PACIFIC.


4) Daylight Savings time- Default is always on. If you are in a zone that does not recognize daylight savings time. Hold the clock facing you, lean clock back and on bottom left is a small button marked D. Hold 2+ seconds and the LCD will blink ON. Press again and LCD will blink OFF. Daylight savings time is now OFF.


5) If power goes out, clock will retain time and alarm will sound if in the ON position.


6) Replace batteries once every year...!


7) If clock looses time or date:


a. Hold Volume +, and Tuner + at same time for 3 seconds

b. Clock face will blink year

c. Turn outer ring of alarm to set Year

d. Press Tuner + once, turn outer ring to set Month

e. Press Tuner + once, set Day

f. Press Tuner +, set Hour

g. Press Tuner +, set Min.

h. Press Tuner + to save all settings.


You must go through all set points to have them remain in memory. (have to run thru all a - h, can't set just Day or Hour/Min, etc. without starting with Year)

How do I get my smart alarm clock to reset itself automatically since the goverment changed the daylight savings time? Or, if I buy a new one will it have the new time changes?


The Daylight Saving Time settings are not user controlled, so you cannot convert the changeovers to the new schedule - you can only change the time manually. Any new clock or clock radio with automatic settings will work on the new schedule.

I have a wacky wake up timex alarm clock and can't set it to correspond with daylight savings.


You press and hold down the time set button...once the time starts to flash you use the "fwd" or "rev" buttons to change the time to what you want it set to. The alarm is set the same way...just press and hold the alarm set button until the time flashes. :)

The Daylight Saving dates appear to be hard-coded per the manual:

Start of Daylight Saving Time:
At 1:59.59 AM on the first Sunday in April, the clock will automatically advance to 3:00 AM.
End of Daylight Saving Time:
At 2:59.59 AM on the last Sunday in October, the clock will automatically reset to 2:00 AM.

So the easiest thing to do is to change your time zone up or down one for the period between the new DST date and the old -- or you can buy a new SmartSet for about $15. The newer ones do not have the same problem.

Turning daylight saving time OFF


If DST is *already* set to "on" when you reset the time zone to Z-07 (Hawaii), my very recent experience is that the time *still gets adjusted back* by one hour.  Now that daylight savings time is over (at least according to the clock's pre-programmed and outdated schedule) I'm hoping that setting the time zone to Z-07 (Hawaii) will completely cancel the automatic time changes from now on.  Otherwise, I need to purchase another clock, and it won't be a Timex.

You can't adjust the Daylight Savings Time. I called Timex and they confirmed this.
