FEATURES

Your RadioShack Projection Clock combines a simple design with advanced technology. You can set the clock so it projects the current time on a wall or the ceiling for easy nighttime viewing. Its features include:

Adjustable Projection Light — lets you project the time on any location on a wall or ceiling. This lets you easily see the time at night.

Large Liquid Crystal Display — makes the clock easy to read. The current time and alarm time, the time zone you are in, and the date and day of the week appear on the display.

Crescendo Alarm — the alarm sounds a series of beeps that gradually increase in volume.

Snooze Control — temporarily silences the alarm for about 8 minutes so you can sleep a little longer.

Display Backlight — lets you see all information on the display even when it is dark.

Supplied AC Adapter — lets you power the clock’s projection light to help extend battery life.

Three Languages — let you view the day of the week in English, French, or Spanish.

PREPARATION

INSTALLING BATTERIES

Your clock requires two AA batteries (not supplied) for power. For the best performance and longest life, we recommend RadioShack alkaline batteries.

Cautions:

Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type.

Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of different capacities.

Follow these steps to install batteries.

1.Slide the battery compartment cover in the direction of the arrow to remove it.

2.Place the batteries in the compartment as indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and –)marked inside.

4

63-969.fmPage 5 Monday, September 27, 1999 9:19 AM

When you install batteries, all display segments briefly appear. Then AM 12:00 appears, followed by the seconds display.1 appears belowMONTH and1 appears belowDATE, indicating January 1.P (the default time zone) appears above the zone indicator.

Note: The clock is preset to display the day of the week in English. To set the clock to display in another language, see “Setting the Clock” on Page 7.

3. Replace the cover.

When BATT appears or the clock stops operating properly, replace the batteries.

Warning: Dispose of old batteries promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury them.

Caution: If you do not plan to use the clock for a month or more, remove the batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.

CONNECTING TO AC POWER

Your clock comes with an AC adapter so you can operate the clock’s projector light continuously from AC power.

5

63-969.fmPage 6 Monday, September 27, 1999 9:19 AM

Caution: You must use a Class 2 power source

!that supplies 3 volts DC and delivers at least 200 mA. Its center tip must be set to positive

and its plug must fit the clock's DC 3V jack. The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the clock or the adapter.

Follow these steps to connect the AC adapter to the clock.

1.Slide the battery compartment cover in the direction of the arrow to remove it.

2.Plug the AC adapter’s tip into the jack inside the battery compartment.

3.Route the adapter’s cord through the slot marked DC 3V on the back of the clock.

4.Replace the cover.

5.Plug the AC adapter’s other end into a standard AC outlet.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Your RadioShack Projection Clock is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help you care for your clock so you can enjoy it for years.

Keep the clock dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids might contain minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.

Use and store the clock only in normal temperature environments. Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices, damage batteries, and distort or melt plastic parts.

Keep the clock away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear of parts.

Handle the clock gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit boards and cases and can cause the clock to work improperly.

Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type. Batteries can leak chemicals that damage your clock’s electronic parts.

13

63-969.fmPage 14 Monday, September 27, 1999 9:19 AM

Wipe the clock with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the clock.

Modifying or tampering with the clock’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate its warranty. If your clock is not performing as it should, take it to your local RadioShack store for assistance.

RESETTING THE CLOCK

If the clock does not work properly or locks up, you can reset it. Open the battery compartment and use a pointed object such as a straightened paper clip to press RESET. All display segments briefly appear. Follow the steps listed in “Setting the Clock” on Page 7 to set the clock again.
