Tip & How-To about Tivoli PAL Radio
I posted this tip elsewhere but the FixYa site is, shall we say, challenging.
After years of use my Tivoli PAL started having volume problems. The audio began popping, volume changed erratically, static, booming, almost feedback sounds.
In my case, and others as well, I've gleaned, the problem was the volume potentiometer. Apparently it oxidizes over time and the poor electrical contact is the reason for the erractic audio.
I'm not an electrical repair kind of guy, so this isn't pretty.
The volume and frequency controllers are secured to the knobs with metal collars. I pried the collars loose and got the horizontal board off, I sprayed Stabilant 22 into the volume pot. There are other electrical contact cleaners as well.
Put it all back together. Let the flud dry. Good as new.
