Adjusting the DST Start Date (Spring)

Step 1 Press and hold the ALARM 1 button and then press the MONTH/DATE or CALENDAR button.

After 3 seconds the “ALARM 1 display” will show the DST 'start' month, week, and date.

The first digit will show the month ("4" = April) and the second digit will alternately show the week ("F" = First Week) and the date ("01" = April 1st).

This indicates that Daylight Saving Time (DST) will end on the first Sunday in April as usual. When you see this display press and hold the ALARM 1 and MONTH/DATE or CALENDAR buttons.

Step 2 Within 5 seconds, while the display is 'flashing', press the DOWN or "SET" button (depending on your specific model) three times until the "ALARM 1" display is showing "3" (March) as the month digit and the Week/Date digit is alternately flashing “F 2” (second week) and “11” (March 11th). This indicates that Daylight Saving Time will end on the second Sunday in March, which will be March 11th in 2007.

Adjusting the DST End Date (Fall)

Step 1 Press and hold the ALARM 2 button and then press the MONTH/DATE or CALENDAR button.

After 3 seconds the “ALARM 1 display” will show the DST 'end' month, week, and date.

The first digit will show the month ("10" = October) and the second digit will alternately show the week ("L" = Last Week) and the date ("28" = October 28th).

This indicates that Daylight Saving Time (DST) will end on the last Sunday in October as usual. When you see this display press and hold the ALARM 1 and MONTH/DATE or CALENDAR buttons.

Step 2 Within 5 seconds, while the display is 'flashing', press the UP or "SET" button (depending on your specific model) and once the "ALARM 1" display is showing "11" (November) as the month digit and the Week/Date digit is alternately flashing “F” (first week) and “04” (November 4th). This indicates that Daylight Saving Time will end on the first Sunday in November, which will be November 4th in 2007.

IMPORTANT: You must make the adjustments within 5 seconds after releasing the ALARM 2 and MONTH/DATE or CALENDAR buttons, while the "ALARM 1"  display is still 'flashing'. If the display stops flashing the settings cannot be adjusted. If this occurs, repeat steps 3 and 4 again.
  • If the built-in long-life lithium battery is removed or replaced while the radio is not connected to an AC outlet all internal memory will be erased and the clock will return to its original default settings.
  • After installing a new battery and resetting the clock to the correct year, date and time,  it will also be necessary to reset the Daylight Saving Time (DST) settings as described above.

Once you make the change for the new Daylight Saving Time (DST) schedule, your SmartSet® Clock Radio will automatically adjust for the new schedule until the end of the century (2099).
