Question about Jensen JCR-280 CD Player

1 Answer

No FM Reception

Brand new out of the box, the JCR-280 gets very poor or no FM reception. When it does work, the unit cannot hold reception very long. Even the lowest quality of receivers in this area will pull in numerous stations with good clarity. Tried using multiple power outlets, extending cord and changing positions ... nothing seems to work.

Fm reception for weak stations poor. reception on car radio fine.


If there is no FM Antenna connection you can try to move the power cord to different positions and see if you get a better signal. If not then move the unit closer to a window or try various locations that might have better reception.

Coaxial FM antenna


Radio Shack has an
adapter catalog number 278-0291. It takes some effort to push the 278-0291
adapter onto the FM UNBL 75 ohm terminal so wait until you have the 278-0291
installed before you connect your 75 ohm coax on to your new adapter.

This will resolve your FM screw on F connector antenna interface issue.


I see others trying to
help suggest using a 300 ohm to 75 ohm transformer match unit, this isn't what is needed. Your receiver antenna input IS a 75
ohm input.

Very poor FM receptio, and virtually no AM reception


The cascadia has an integrated AM-FM-WX, XM?, and CB antenna system, that is also prone to poor grounding. The best solution is to install aftermarket antenna systems for all of the equipment... I am driving a 2013 Cascadia with quite poor FM, and non existant AM, and WX reception. The XM works. I am afraid to hook up my CB to this, as it is pushing too much power, and is a sideband unit. I would like to hang the engineer by his/her toenails from the nearest tree for comming up with this garbage...

FM reception for Sony ICF-CD513?


The electrical cord acts as an antennae for this radio. Uncoiling the cord will give the best reception for FM. Rotating the radio (and built in ferrite bar antennae) will give the best reception for AM listening.

FM reception


Assuming the antenna connection is not broken, an old trick is to get a sizeable piece of aluminum foil and twist the center of it making a big bowtie. Wrap (twist) the center of the bowtie around the top of the antenna and see what happens. Try turning it so it points in different directions to see if any particular direction gets better reception.

You may have a bad antenna or antenna cable.
FM signals are measured in microvolts and are easily influenced by poor antennas or a mashed antenna cable.
