My portable radio (roberts R617 aka Sangean 606A) has suddenly developed a fault. FM works fine but LW/MW/SW shows the frequency in the window but only hissing comes from the speaker and the tuning light does not illuminate on known strong stations - thanks

Hi,
If you are experiencing bad or NONE AM (MW) reception ,if your receiver has an external antenna connection point here is the solution... It should also have a ground connection as it is rare such a point does not accompany an external antenna connection.
The problem with MW reception is the vast frequency range of the MW band as" 540-1760kHz "
means nighttime fade out, and even heavy static and distortion..( less than SW )
in order to receive a station on LW and MW bands you need to have a "Loop Antenna " that normally supplied by manufacturer..if you cant locate it ,you can buy it in any electronic store..it is a very cheap accessory..additionally both LW and MW works good in daytime with powerful radio stations in your vicinity ..espacially LW..not much stations on these days..except in Europa..MW works better and more stations come after sunset ..
SW band is a little bit different.if you really want to listen SW in depth ,and if your receiver has multiple SW bands as well ,you then need special SW antenna to be attached to your receiver..otherwise it is not worth to listen it due to heavy static and distortion on the band..,unless you want it..just for testing and to see what is available in your area pls attack a plain wire (about 1 meter ) to ext antenna plug and try to search it..if you desire to learn shortwave -Listen To The World please visit the URL below.

How do I set the. Time


With the radio off, press and hold the ENTER (time set) Key DOWN. On the right side, there are 4 buttons with arrows on them. The inside ones set the timezone that you are in, the outside two will set the time. I just checked this on my ICF-SW100 and it works for me.

Fm radio works fine but the dab will not find any stations, I have tried different aerials and still no good


What's the make & model of the radio?
Most DAB/FM radios work from the same antenna, so if you receive FM stations, you should receive DAB stations in your area.
It should be noted that DAB transmitters work on lower power than conventional FM transmitters, and so you may be in a weak reception area (for DAB). It should also be noted that DAB uses different frequencies than regular FM stations and household appliances such as laptops,WiFi, microwave ovens, etc can affect DAb reception.

My three-year-old Model One has started making very loud popping/cracking noises intermittently on the FM band. It can work fine for several minutes, even half an hour or so, but invariably the noises...


I found in some cases that the tuning capacitor collects small particles of dust causing snaps, pops, and drop outs. One solution is get some electronic cleaning spray from radio shack or service shop. now open the back of the radio, look for square plastic box it is transparent and you will see metal plates with small screws. On the top you will see small round holes in the plastic, attach the supplied straw and spray inside two good blasts should do it. rotate the tuning several times back and forth this cleans the plates, until spray dries the station will be on wrong frequency until dries

How do I preset the tuner for radio stations. I've never had a problem doing this with any other stereo. But what I think should work isn't!


Not very specific. Do you have the manual?

The following is from a VSX-03TXH manual. It ain't pretty but it may help.

I'm posting it in multiple parts due to space contraints.

Chapter 6:

Using the tuner

Listening to the radio

The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and

AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and

manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the

frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a

station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can

memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving

station presets below for more on how to do this.

1 Press the FM/AM button to select the tuner.

2 Use the FM/AM button to change the band (FM or

AM), if necessary.

Each press switches the band between FM and AM.

3 Tune to a station.

There are three ways to do this:

Automatic tuning

To search for stations in the currently selected band,

press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for about a second. The

receiver will start searching for the next station,

stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for

other stations.

Manual tuning

To change the frequency one step at a time, press

TUNE ?©/??.

High speed tuning

Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.

Release the button at the frequency you want.

Improving FM stereo sound

If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when

tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press

the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono

reception mode. This should improve the sound quality

and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.

Using Neural THX

This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to

achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.

• While listening to FM radio, press AUTO/DIRECT for
Neural THX listening.

Ford 6000 eon radio unit - unit has no volume on fm stations, or occasionally the vlume comes on when first turned on and then fades after about 20 - 30 seconds. It finds stations on automatic search but...


Alas

This is a very common fault with these units, repair is a little expensive, as it's the FM tuner unit. It's an ebay job I'm afraid, pay around £45 for a second hand 6000 with code.

Can't find a radio frequency


check if the antenna is connected right. I assume it is FM. If AM and SW there are different antennas. Make sure the ends of the antenna connecting to the receiver unit is stripped. Best of luck
