PREPARATION

CONNECTING TO

AC POWER

Plug the clock radio’s power cord into a standard AC outlet. The display flashes and the BATTERY SENTINEL indicator light next to the time display turns on (see “Installing a Back-UpBattery”).

INSTALLING A BACK-UPBATTERY

Your clock radio uses a 9V battery (not supplied) to operate the clock and alarm during a power failure. The display turns off, but the clock keeps the time for at least 8 hours, and the alarm will sound (if set) for at least 10 minutes after power fails. For the best performance, we recommend an alkaline battery, such as RadioShack Cat. No. 23-553.

Caution: Use only a fresh battery of the required size and recommended type.

Note: To prevent unnecessary drain on the battery, install it only after connecting the clock radio to AC power.

1.Press the tab and lift off the battery compartment cover on the bottom of the clock radio.

2.Snap the clock radio’s battery contacts onto the battery’s terminals, then insert the battery into the compartment. The BATTERY SENTINEL indicator turns off.

Note: If the BATTERY SENTINEL indicator remains lit, pressSNOOZE to reset the indicator. If that does not work, replace theback-upbattery.

3. Replace the cover.

The BATTERY SENTINEL indicator lights if the back-upbattery is not installed or needs to be replaced.

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

THE FCC WANTS YOU TO KNOW

Your clock radio might cause TV or radio interference even when it is operating properly. To determine whether your clock radio is causing the interference, turn off your clock radio. If the interference goes away, your clock radio is causing the interference. Try to eliminate the interference by:

moving your clock radio away from the TV or another radio

connecting your clock radio to an outlet that is on a different electrical circuit from the TV or another radio

contacting your local RadioShack store for help

If you cannot eliminate the interference, the FCC requires that you stop using the clock radio.
