Question about Emerson SmartSet CKS1850 Clock Radio

3 Answers

Wrong date on the radio.

How do I change the date.  The back up battery went dead and during a power outage the radio shut down entirely.  When I replaced the battery and plugged it in the date came up as Jan.1st 08.  It is ony Oct. 0 and the days of the week are off..  How do I change the date to the current date as this effects the setting of the alarm days of the week?

RESETTING THE CLOCK AFTER A TOTAL MEMORY LOSS

If you do not change the built in lithium battery within a reasonable period of time after you see the ‘flashing’ LOW BATT. warning indicator, the lithium battery may become exhausted and will no longer be able to supply back up power to the SmartSet internal computer.

If the unit is disconnected from the AC outlet after the battery is exhausted, or if a power interruption occurs, the SmartSet memory will be lost and the clock will need to be reset when the power is restored. Be sure to install a fresh lithium battery before you reset the clock, otherwise the clock will need to be reset each time the power is interrupted.

If the lithium battery is exhausted and you experience an interruption in the AC power supply, the clock will reset itself to its initial default setting when the power is restored.

The initial default setting is “12:00 AM, Saturday, January 1
(1 1), 2005”.

If you notice that the time on your SmartSet clock radio is completely incorrect, and the day indicator is also wrong, press the MONTH/DATE button to see the date. If the date display is showing “1 1” (January 1 ), you probably experienced
a total memory loss. To reset the clock after a total memory loss, proceed as follows:

1.) Install a new CR2430 lithium battery in the battery compartment.

2.) Connect the radio to your AC outlet and let the clock set itself.

3.) Depress the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons together. The display will change from ‘time’ to ‘year’. While holding the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons, press the UP button to
set the display to the correct year, then release the buttons.

4.) Depress the MONTH/DATE button. The display will change from ‘time’ to 'month/date’ (mm/dd). While holding the MONTH/DATE button, press the UP button to set the display
to the correct month and date. The Day indicator will change automatically as you adjust the month/date settings. When the correct month and date appear on the display, release the buttons.

5.) Depress the TIME button and the UP button to set the display to the correct time. Be sure to confirm that you have set the time correctly to ‘AM’ or ‘PM’ by observing the AM indicator.

6.) After you set the time, reconfirm that the Day, and Month/Date displays are still correct. Make final adjustments if necessary.

The SmartSet clock memory is now reset and the new lithium battery will maintain it for the next 5 to 8 years, depending on the number and duration of the power outages you experience.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
After resetting the clock, don’t forget to reset your wake up times, and alarm mode settings, and sleep timer settings as well.

How do I get the battery to operate the clock when the power is off. I have the battery in correctly, but when the power is off the clock goes off?


I just read the manual an I am not sure it does. The manual says nothing about that. My clock does the same when power fails. Comes back to correct time when power returns. I miss that on my older clock. Display never went out even during power outage. You can call Phillips an ask or email. It is on there site.

Why is it our computer server keeps on rebooting or ups can't properly function during black out?


Without further information as to the exact symptoms, it is important to point out that UPSs are only meant to function for a short amount of time (between 3 and 30 minutes, depending on model). The UPS will simply run out of battery power after that time. If the UPS has a computer interface, it may instruct the server to shut down when primary power is lost to prevent data destruction.

If the UPS does not function even briefly during a power outage, the batteries have liken gone dead and either they or the entire unit will need to be replaced. Another possibility is that you do not have a UPS at all, but a surge protector or other device that does not supply power at all.

Ups troubles


What is happening here is you are transferring load to battery during a power outage but on return of Line Power the UPS is not smoothly transferring back to Normal mode. As a result you are basically turning off your computer. Two options... shut down your computer orderly during an outage or buy a new UPS.

The date and time are held by the battery so I would guess the battery is going dead or is. Try keeping it plugged in and shut it down for a few then reboot. If the time and date stay good guess the battery is dead. Also make sure you get the power management firmware update from apple. hope it helps
