I can't get the AM radio to find a signal. All other components work fine.


Hello
If you get FM radio stations, and only AM reception is immpossible, check whether AM loop antenna has connected to the respective poles at the back side. If it is connected, and still you do not get the Amplitude Modulation [AM] signals, check the input settings of the device is correct to recive AM. There will be a slelection option, for AM & FM. OK.

I just bought the RCA CD/DVD home theater system RTD206. I cant figure out how to change the radio channels. Also cant figure out how to change the cd disk tracks. Does this system have a remote. Or do i have to have it hooked to a TV to use these options?


The system does have a remote (at least it should come with one if purchased new), and you need it to control pretty much everything. Here's what the manual says about the radio tuner (you can find the whole manual here) :

Manual Tuning
1. Connect the FM aerial and the AM loop antenna at the back of the unit. Rotate the AM loop for
better reception.
2. Press TUNER to enter TUNER mode and toggle between FM and AM.
3. When the FM station broadcasts Stereo sound, ST is displayed.
4. Tune a station by pressing repeatedly the TUNER+/- buttons until the desired station is found.
Alternatively, you can press and hold the same buttons down for about one second to activate
the automatic search function. In this mode the player will automatically tune frequencies until
it finds a station.
5. Repeat step 4 to tune to another radio station.

Storing radio stations
The player can store up to 30 radio stations in its memory. You can enter every single radio station
yourself or the player can store all available radio stations automatically in ascending order.
Automatic preset programming
1. Press TUNER to enter the Tuner mode.
2. Press and hold TUNER down for 3 seconds to start automatic preset programming.
Note: A weak signal can affect the "Automatic preset programming" function's efficiency. Adjust the aerial for better
reception and a more efficient search.
3. Radio frequencies will be browsed and radio stations stored automaitcally. When all the available
radio stations are stored or all 30 memory locations are full, the auto preset programming
function will stop.

Manual preset
1. Tune to a radio station (see "Manual tuning" for details).
2. Press MEMORY once to enter flashing Preset Loaction number.
3. While the Preset Location number is still flashing, input your desired preset number (1-30) using
the numeric buttons or press the CH+/- buttons, then press MEMORY to store it.

Retrieving preset stations
1. Press TUNER to enter the Tuner mode.
2. Press CH+/- to search up or down for the preset stations or directly press the numeric buttons.

As you see, you really need that remote. The same is true for disc play. While there are front panel buttons for play/stop, disc skip, and drawer open/close, you don't have any other control without the remote. Without the remote control you'll find this system won't do too much, unfortunately. If you bought this new, check the packing material before you throw it away to make sure the remote's not still somewhere in the box. They often come tucked into slots on the foam inserts.

Also, when you hook the unit to a TV, it's just using the TV as a video display device. The TV has nothing to do with any of the system's other functions.

I hope you have luck locating the remote! Thanks for using Fixya.

wont stop on a station when search button is pressed


The autosearch feature stops on stations based on a preset threshold for radio station signal strength.

If your radio has done this on both AM and FM from when it was new, it is probably an internal problem with the circuit board electronics or possibly because you are in an area where strong signals are absent (such as a rural area or inside a building that interferes with signals).

If the radio won't stop searching at all, the 'Search' button' may be stuck.

If you find that your radio is skipping stations only on FM, it may be a defective or broken external antenna or, again, maybe you are in an area where strong signals are absent (such as a rural area or inside a building that interferes with signals).

Hope this helped.

FM Transmitter does not connect to car radio, have FX signal and Line out works.


Car cradle works "wirelessly" with Car Radio (inherent design of unit). Place Unit in Cradle; connect Cradle to Auto Power Source, and SkyFi3 should power on. Press Menu to Get FM Radio station channels; select a lower station Channel Frequency i.e. 88.3 or any vacant channel number and the signal should transfer to your Radio speakers automatically. You can change Station frequencies as often as you need to do so--for example if traveling through different broadcast areas, some channels frequencies are clearer than others. Good luck.
