Typically when you can get am reception and can't get fm reception the problem is not the antenna but is in fact in the fm tuner- many times it turns out to be bad solder joints in the tuner itself

If you installed an aftermarket antenna you may have to splice two wires to make full connection, email customersupport@discountautoantennas.com and explain and they may be able to email you instructions for a solution you may not have it grounded properly.

SOURCE: FM Reception with Jensen MSR3007

I have the exact same problem with the exact same stereo. I started by removing the in-line AM/FM/VHF Separator and connecting the antenna directly to the stereo. The static/popping/fade-out continued. Today I swapped to a new antenna, but it did not help. I swapped back to the original antenna and for a brief while, I had good reception. The I went to coil the excess antenna cable and the static/popping/fade-out resumed. I have narrowed it down to either the antenna connector coming out of the back of the stereo or an internal circuit. Either way, it does not look like a do-it-yourself fix.

How do I get an antenna for the FM connection?


You can use an old rabbit ears style antenna or go to a radio shack and get a flat ribbon style. If you're close to the radio stations a single section of wire about 2 feet long connected to one of the antenna screws will work too.

My brother gave me the receiver, it is a AV AVR 1905 Denon do not have the antenna so all I get is static.


Test and confirm if the amplifier is working with an imput source. If the fault is only a loss of FM/AM signals then try and connect an external antennae based on the signal strength in your area to confirm if there is a fault in the radio sectiion. You can conect a set of wires to the FM loop connection and keep it up , if the signal strength is very good it will give you the signal after a search. Memorise, set an external antennae with a proper setting to get the best clarity.

I have a Bose Lifestyle v20 home theater system and whenever I use the radio ( FM/AM ), no sound/music comes out. The rest are fine, but only the FM/AM ones dont work. It used to, but now its gone.


I hope you checked if the antenna wire is connected before reporting this defect.
All modern radios have automatic muting. No sound will come out unless the receiver gets enough signal strength to give you an undistorted sound, so if your antenna wire is disconnected you will get no sound.

My Sony CDX-MP70 unit plays CDs and works on aux off my iPod but when I try to listen to am or fm it's nothing but static if I scan for a station it will just search forever, I took it apart but it all...


Check for a loose antenna connection, at the unit and where your antenna is attached to your car. Also, check fuses, some cars have 'powered amplified' antennas.
If those dont work, try resetting the unit. On most units there is a small pinhole behind the faceplate(not on the faceplate). Could also be the internal tuner has gone out...

Hope this helps

Am/fm radio stations not clear... I have the AM antenna attached... but there is no attachment for FM


First of all check for any nearby source of interference.....Move your unit away from all computers, fluorescent lights, neon lights, microwaves, cell phones, and cell phonemag-glass_10x10.gif chargers. These devises tend to produce noise in the medium frequency band, where AM radio is broadcast.
If the unit plugs into the wall with a nonpolarized plug (where both prongs are the same size), try reversing the plug inmag-glass_10x10.gif the outlet. Moving the plug to another outlet might help, too.
check for fault in the antenna lead, (common) or bad earth on the antenna to body
If you don't have an antenna connected to your FM receiver,With a receiver or tuner, connect a wire-loop or T-shaped dipole FM antenna to the back of your unit. Move the antenna until you get the cleanest signal. Use a signal-strength meter or display to gauge signal strength if your unit has one.
  • Step 2 If you're still not getting a good signal, try an indoor amplified antenna, which you'll find at an electronics store. Don't buy one unless you get a guarantee that you can return it for full credit if it doesn't solve your reception problems.
  • Step 3 If your signal is weak because you live a long way from the transmitter, install an outside antenna and mount it as high as is practical. If you're primarily interested in getting signals from one station or from a group of stations in one direction, get a directional antenna and point it toward the transmitters.
  • Step 4 If you're using a portable FM radio where the only antenna is the power cord, stretch the cord as straight as possible and experiment with positioning again.
  • Step 5 Temporarily switch to monaural mode to improve a weak signal on an FM receiver.

    Make sure that this is NOT a "Sure Connect" version that has a very weak FM transmitter, but the older original model with a bland box. Make sure no earphone is plugged-in, then go to the menu and set the FM frequency and set the FM output level and you should be all set..

    Delphi SKYFi3 XM Radio Repeater


    You begin by setting up your existing (((XM))) antenna the one that came in your home kit (not included in repeater package) in a location that gets good reception of the (((XM))) signal. This may be outside, or on a south facing window sill. This antenna gets plugged into the rear of the Delphi (((XM))) Radio Signal Repeater Transmitter. A power jack is right next to the antenna connection, and should be plugged in and to the wall with the included power supply. There is also a "PWR OUT" selector switch on the rear of the unit which allows you to control the strength of the signal transmitted from the unit.

    Once the power and antenna are attached, both blue indicator lights will light up on the face of the unit. The blue antenna indicator will light up only to signify that the antenna is attached correctly. It does not let you know whether your antenna is in a location receiving a good (((XM))) signal or not. You will have to look at the signal strength indicator on your (((XM))) radio receiver do determine best location for the (((XM))) antenna.

    Once you have this setup, place the Repeater Antenna close to your existing (((XM))) Radio and plug it into your antenna jack on the (((XM))) radio cradle. This connector is identical to your (((XM))) Home Antenna provided with all Boom boxes and (((XM))) home receivers and kits so compatibility is guaranteed. The Repeater Receiver Antenna does not require any separate power connections. Hope this helps!

    I had the same problem. Only thing that I came up with that was consistant is plugging it into the aux jack on my radio so you don't have to depend on FM frequency. But, my unit crapped out this week and I hope it is under warranty.

    Connect sirius fm adapter to 2008 honda civic sedan radio


    You should use the direct FM box to get the static to go away. You unplug the antenna from the radio, plug the antenna lead from the box into the radio, the antenna line plugs into the box. You will have a mini jack that plugs into your radio or dock.

    This way you can switch it on any station to get rid of the static.

    You shouldn't need to take the dashboard out to get to the radio. Usually you have to take the trim pieces in front of the radio to get the antenna line out.

    Sometime you can reach it from the back of the radio if there is enough clearance to get cak there.
