Tivoli iSongBook no sound from the speakers

I have tried everything with my new Tivoli iSongbook to get sound out of the speakers but nothing works. Maybe the speakers are broken but the system was purchased new. Is there something I may have done wrong? Thanks.

SOURCE: tivoli model two - low/no sound in base unit

I have exactly the same problem but found two work arounds, either one that I am completely satisfied. 1. unplug and replug the AC.
2. I have a subwoofer, when I plug the subwoofer cable half way in, the sounds of the base speak goes back to normal (but not all the way in)

SOURCE: no sound from isongbook. How do I remove the back

Take off the three screws you can see. then there is one in the battery compartment on the left. And finally, take out the allen head screw on the Ipod side, and under it is the last screw. You can't see it. It is a small phillips head; I used a blue excelite driver to get it out. Then the covers seperate. Be careful as there are boards on both with several connectors.

How do you remove the speaker balance knob on a tivoli model dab radio situated on the rear panel.


Usually they pull right off. Unless you see a hole in the side with a hex key screw, it will pull off. Just pull gently and steadily and it should merely pop off.

Tip

Tivoli PAL volume problems


I posted this tip elsewhere but the FixYa site is, shall we say, challenging.<br /> After years of use my Tivoli PAL started having volume problems. The audio began popping, volume changed erratically, static, booming, almost feedback sounds.<br /> In my case, and others as well, I've gleaned, the problem was the volume potentiometer. Apparently it oxidizes over time and the poor electrical contact is the reason for the erractic audio.<br /> I'm not an electrical repair kind of guy, so this isn't pretty.<br /> The volume and frequency controllers are secured to the knobs with metal collars. I pried the collars loose and got the horizontal board off, I sprayed Stabilant 22 into the volume pot. There are other electrical contact cleaners as well.<br /> Put it all back together. Let the flud dry. Good as new.<br /> Good luck.

The sound disappears gradually after turning the radio on. When turning off and on again the sound is ok at first but after a few seconds it fades out. Same problem with mp3 player connected, i guess...


I have the same problem. Tivoli just had these made cheaply in China and sell them for a bunch here. POS. Their "outstanding" warranty is just a piece of paper.....100 bucks for fix a 150 dollar radio, don't think so.

My Tivoli Model One makes a loud screech/buzz noise


I had the same problem and was able to repair it quite easily. Only thing needed is some basic soldering skills.

Problem description:

  • Suddenly a quite loud and disturbing (scratch/screech/buzz) noise appears.
  • Sometimes the noise is gone but it reappears sooner or later.
  • Changing volume or radio band / input (am, fm, aux) does not affect the noise (even on volume turned down all the way).
  • The signal coming out of the Headphones / Rec Out plug is not affected.

Cause:

  • Cold solder joints

Solution:

  • Unplug from mains
  • Remove back panel (the two black screws next to the plugs in the center). The back panel sticks quite firmly, so it might help to remove the front panel first (the 4 screws in the corners) and carefully press out the back panel from the inside. (The other two (silver) screws are used to attach the transformer to the back panel) and need not to be loosened.)
  • On the circuit board at the back panel locate the plug that goes to the speaker (is says "J2"). Check the solder joints. In my case, looking closely, I could see that they're not good anymore.
  • Renew the joints by heating them up and applying some fresh soldering tin. I also renewd the joint from the wire bridge next to the plug. Just check the other solder joints on the board.

In my case afterwards the problem was gone and the device is working properly again.

Antenna on radio broke


Radio Shack can get you an antenna, or a long wire (or wire coat hanger actually works too)
