Question about Sangean America HD Radio Component Tuner

1 Answer

No alpha numerics

My Sangean HDT-1 HD receiver shows no alpha numeric info, only a blue
back light lights up. This is the second receiver I've had that has done this.
Is this a common problem? I hate to give up using it for the sensitivity and
the selectivity. And I have an antenna and rotor that I would hate not to be
able to use. Any info you provide will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi David, I can't seem to find that this is a common problem (at least not yet). Hopefully the unit is still under some sort of warranty. I might suggest looking for a model hdt-1X that has the .4 version of firmware. Apparently with the .3 version the display is never turned off (even when the unit is in the "off" mode). With the .4 version you can dim the display and it will turn off when the unit is in standby mode. For other differences see this link: Sorry I don't have any better solution for you at this time but I will keep a watch out and post any further findings. Happy Trails ...... Jack

Sangean ATS 803A

Don't be mis-led by the working display. I had the "no power" problem with a working display too. I measured the voltage of the two AA batteries. One was 1.33 volts and the other was only 0.76 volts. Replaced the weak AA and everything worked. I suspect the 'enable' circuitry fails around/below 2.1v.

On HD-2 band

You need to make sure that the signal is strong enough. In the carrier to noise ratio you need to keep it above 55 db. Anything below that and HD will drop.

Use the SSI to determine C/N ratio and use that to aid in pointing the antenna.

Remove the battery compartment door and the batteries. There should be a small hole marked "reset" under the upper battery cradle. Press (gently...until it clicks) and hold for 5 seconds. Replace batteries and try again.
