Why has radio has stopped working just hisses

Sounds like there is no antenna connection. Check both ends of the wire... at the radio end and where it connects to the antenna.

No Sound from Jensen VM9725BT

Jimmie Monica Hey, Its not a problem with the unit. You have the blue or Blue/White wire hooked up wrong. Disconnect both the blue wire and the blue and white wire and I guarantee the sound starts working on everything. If you have one of those two wires hooked up for a power antenna or remote amp turn on, then switch which one you are using and that will fix the problem permanently. Disconnecting them both will get it to work though. I guarantee it. Please post back and let me know if it works for you. Thanks

My Klh r3000 receiver is great for everything except picking up am or fm stations? I had an antenna attached, but the unit is in my basement, and I get no signals at all. What could I be doing wrong?

If the antenna is in a basement that is the problem - the fact that it is below ground means that no signals can get through.
Radio signals are blocked by buildings, large lumps of metal or other solid objects as well as strong magnetic fields (which can include electrical devices within the home).
To pick up good radio reception you will need an external antenna above the ground level - preferably as high as you can get it. Unless you get an omni-directional antenna like this one you will need to point the antenna accurately at the transmitting station (+ or - about 5 degrees) for FM. At a pinch you might get by with an indoor aerial but it needs to be above ground level (inside a roof would be best)
Good external AM Radio aerials are harder to find these days.

I want a MANUAL for TELEFUNKEN (radio machine 1958) Super Heterodyne D778 WK TROT. My father own this from my grandfather and it does not tune to radio stations. Please let me know if you can help us with...

Hi, I will do the best I can to help you. I remember these radios from my childhood. There may be some things you can do to help it tune to FM radio stations. On the back of the radio, there should be 2 screws referring to an "FM" antenna. If the radio is making a "hissing" sound through the speaker, but you are not picking up any stations, then connect a single wire about 1.5 meters in length to the screw labeled "FM antenna". The other screw, if it is labeled "ground" leave with no wire attached. Make sure that the wire you use does not touch both screws. The piece of wire should act as an FM antenna. If that is the only issue, then you should pick up radio stations.
That is a very well made, good quality radio, but it is over 50 years old.
Here is a link to Telefunken in Germany. They may be able to find a manual for you.
I would suggest having someone fill out the request in English.
I hope I have helped you. Let me know.
Best Regards,

located the Telefunken website.
Here is a link to it.

The phono works, but i get no sound when tuner on

This usually means that the tuner is not getting sufficient reception for the station you are trying to listen to.

Receivers come with cheap wire loop antennas try upgrading to a powered FM antenna available online or at your local Radio Shack.

Hope that helps

Xm radio

Try with a different XM Antenna from a friend or shop if possible to verify whether it's the antenna or the unit itself.
Visually inspect antenna cable and connection at the antenna and the unit and make sure the antenna cable hasn't been damaged.
I would do this before considering other options
Good Luck!

If its a one wire or two wire FM/AM antenna your needing just use a length of regular stereo speaker wire or electrical wire at least 5foot in length. Should do the trick nicely.

Radio stations have shushing sound

Cheap table top radio is mono. Your Denon is not getting a good signal so you are hearing noise. You need a better antenna (roof type) or the antenna needs to be moved and aimed in another direction. Try moving it while the station is tuned. You can also switch the Denon to mono and it will reduce the noise at the loss of fidelity.
