Boombox does not maintain connection to radio

Greetings, I recently purchased a Xact Stream Jockey II radio and its corresponding boombox. When the radio is placed into the boombox, after a few seconds the radio shuts off. We have discovered that this is corrected by pushing down on the receiver and that the boombox appears to lose the connection to it during play time

Re: boombox does not maintain connection to radio

Here is the fix,Thanks to all of you for your detailed comments I found an easy way to repair the boom box. Many of you said that if you pushed down on the radio hard it would play so I tried it and I too had the same problem, but since it is impossible to stand all day holding the radio and get anything else done I figured if you can't lower the radio raise the plug! Here is what I did, first unplug the radio so you don't short anything out, then at the front of the plastic plate the radio plugs into gently pry it up with a lock blade knife (as a rule kitchen knives are too flexible) then get a small self tapping screw (the smaller the better) and screw it into the gap made by the knife the radio will now play without any problem!

Re: boombox does not maintain connection to radio

If the problem can be "fixed" by pushing down the reciever, it must be caused by some sort of loose contacts or wiring. there's a good chance that tightning some screw will solve this problem. if you have basic electronic skills you can open the unit and check for any loose screw or wire.

Can external speakers be used with the sony cfd s 350 model? If so, do they plug into the headphone jack on top of the boombox?


There is no provision for connecting external speakers. The headphone connector is exclusively for connecting headphones.

Where can you purchase a replacement antenna for


I just replaced my broken antenna for my CFD-S350 by calling Sony Parts and Support at (239) 768-7691. Cost only $7.99 and that included the $2.00 shipping charge.

Someone gave my special education classroom an Emerson PD6511B CD player - without a power cord. Where can I purchase just the cord?


Radio Shack sells several cords typically used with boomboxes. This one, while it may not be exactly the same end as the original, works in most boomboxes. Their website says most of the cords are in the stores, so you can take the boombox with you to one and see if there's an exact match available. You can also run this boombox on batteries until you find a cord.

Radio station presets


Look in the back of the boombox where the large D-cell batteries are. Beneath the large batteries there is a location for smaller AA size batteries. The AA size batteries are used to maintain the radio station pre-sets when the unit is unplugged. Check to see that these batteries are installed or if they need to be replaced with new ones.
