Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

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.

My Sangean ATS 808 AM/FM/SW Radio reciever shows a flashing E on startup and won't operate. Any answers on resetting or other solution?


Hello, I assume that this only happens when you are using it on batteries and the unit works when plugged into the mains. If this is the case it most likely is a faulty or dirty connection in the main battery chamber. Clean all contacts reload new batteries and try again.

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.
