NOTE: Alkaline (NEDA 1604A) battery are recommended. Carbon-zinc
battery may be used but memory holding time will be substantially
reduced. Memory holding time for a fresh alkaline battery is
approximately 8 hours (if radio or alarm are not operated), which
should take care of short, nuisance-type AC power failures. To preserve
battery life, the radio should remain plugged into an AC outlet. As the
battery gets older, its voltage drops and memory may be lost. Be sure
to replace the battery periodically.
Battery should be removed if the radio will be stored for more than
Leaky battery can badly damage the clock radio.
Install battery as follows:
1. Remove battery compartment door (located on the bottom of
the unit) by pressing down on the thumb tab and pulling it
out the cabinet.
2. Connect a 9-volt battery to battery connector plug.
3. Insert the battery and replace compartment door.
AM/FM CLOCK RADIO
Power Failure Indicator
When AC power is interrupted (disconnected) for a short period,
both time and alarm settings will change (unless optional battery
is installed). After AC power is restored (reconnected) the Digital
Display will blink to indicate that power was interrupted and you
must readjust the TIME and ALARM settings. To stop display from
blinking, press and hold the TIME SET or WAKE SET/OFF button
together with the HOUR or MINUTE button.
“No Worry” Battery Backup
This clock radio is equipped with a memory holding system that
can be powered with a customer-installed 9-volt alkaline battery
(not included). The power failure protection circuit will not
operate unless battery is installed.
When normal household power is interrupted, or AC line cord is
unplugged, the battery will power the clock radio to keep track
of time and alarm settings programmed into memory. When on
battery power, the digital display will not light; however, should
WAKE TIME occur during the power interruption, the radio will
operate or the alarm will sound if remaining battery power is
adequate. Normal operation will resume after AC power is
restored so you will not have to reset time or alarm.

Your digital clock timer operates on a 12-hour cycle. The AM
indicator on the left side of the display will light up to let you
know if the display is reading AM time.

This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to
the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful
interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received,
including interference that may cause undesired operation.
In accordance with FCC requirements, changes or modifications not
expressly approved by Thomson Consumer Electronics could void the
user’s authority to operate this product.
This device generates and uses radio frequency (RF) energy, and if not
installed and used properly, this equipment may cause interference to
radio and television reception.
If this equipment does cause interference to radio or television reception
(which you can determine by unplugging the unit), try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient the receiving antenna (that is, the antenna for the radio or
television that is “receiving” the interference).
• Move the unit away from the equipment that is receiving interference.
• Plug the unit into a different wall outlet so that the unit and the
equipment receiving interference are on different branch circuits.
If these measures do not eliminate the interference, please consult your
dealer or an experienced radio/television technician for additional
before you begin
For Your Safety
The AC power plug is polarized (one blade is wider than the
other) and only fits into AC power outlets one way. If the plug
won’t go into the outlet completely, turn the plug over and try
to insert it the other way. If it still won’t fit, contact a qualified
electrician to change the outlet, or use a different one. Do not
attempt to bypass this safety feature.
Important Battery Information
• When storing the unit or unplugging it from AC outlet for a
day or more, be sure to remove battery because it can leak
and damage the unit.
• Batteries may leak electrolyte if inserted incorrectly, if
disposed of in fire, or if an attempt is made to charge a
battery not intended to be recharged.
• Discard leaky batteries immediately. Leaking batteries can
cause skin burns or other personal injury.
• Dispose of batteries, according to federal, state, and local
operating the radio
1. Plug the power cord into any 120V AC household outlet.
2. Slide the FUNCTION switch to ON to turn on the radio.
3. Slide the AM/FM BAND switch to desired broadcast band.
4. Turn TUNING knob to select a station.
5. Adjust the VOLUME knob to your preferred listening level.
6. To turn the radio off, slide the FUNCTION switch to OFF.
The Built-In Automatic Frequency Control (AFC) works only on
FM. It helps to reduce drift on FM reception and to keep the
radio locked in on the FM station to which it is tuned.
When tuning in FM stations, you may notice that often the
station you desire can be heard on two or three nearby points on
the dial. Always tune carefully to the loudest and clearest point.
AM Antenna - A built-in ferrite rod antenna eliminates the need
for an outside antenna for AM reception - Rotating the unit
slightly may improve reception of distant AM stations.
FM Antenna - The power cord acts as your FM antenna. The
power cord picks up moderate to strong stations and eliminates
the need for an external antenna in most strong signal areas. Be
sure the power cord is stretched out to its full length. Do not coil
or bunch the cord together. Changing position of the power cord
may improve reception.
