Hitachi FT-5500 Mark 11 AM/FM stereo tuner. It is a hi fi tuner and it has lost its ability to remember stations

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Dec 22, 2008

    I had a Hitachi unit which would only remember the stations while plugged in. If I unplugged the unit, I would have to reset. Think it was the FT 8000.
    I have a download of the service manual if you would like a copy.

    I do like that tuner, and if you ever were interested in selling, I would be interested in buying it. I dont see them often.

Hi,
if the tuner has lost its ability to remember stations, it is due to the low backup battery. Replace the old one by a new 3V lithium battery. Can be the same as used in PC mainboards. If the old battery is fixed with welded metal strips, cut them near the battery. They cannot be welded again to a new battery. Bend the strips close together, so that the battery is hold tight when iserted between the strips. Observe the correct polarisation of the battery, must be the same as with the old one.

Where to order cords


Any Hi-Fi store will be able to provide them. Amazon have a good selection of cables and wires. As with all cables and wires with hi-fi the better quality sound you want the more expensive the cables you need to get. But it's your choice. You will need to specify which cables you need, based on the connections between your hi-fi and the Receiver.

The stereo light on my marantz 2226b receiver does not come on even on a stereo fm station


Hello,

my first question is does the light come on when you turn to Tape, Phono, Aux selection? If no lamp is blown, if it does come on then your tuner need to be serviced. FM tuner work is NOT for a novice. I would be glad to take a look at the unit.

Thanks

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.

Do not have manual. Need to program tuner channels and clock.


For clock turn key on and stereo off. Press and hold the function button for 3-5 seconds. the clock should appear with the hours flashing. Use the up-down buttons to set hours. Push the right button to set the minutes. Now turn on the stereo with the source (or power) button and your done!
Remember key on stereo off. hold function, the rest will become second nature once you've done it a few times.
Tuner pre-sets are super easy. Tune to the station you want and then just hold the # button (1-6) that you want that station on for about 3 seconds. The channel your on, (e.i 104.9) will flash a couple of times and then stop flashing. When it stops flashing it's in the memory. Tune your next channel and hold # 2,3,4,5,6, If 6 isn't enough push BAND and your on FM-2 with 6 more pre-sets, Push it again for FM-3 with 6 more presets. Push it a 3rd time for the AM band with 6 pre-sets and one more time to get back to FM-1.

Hitachi ft 5500 tuner, tuner pre set problem


Hi,
I bought an FT-5500 in 1983 that I haven't used for ten years but I still have the manual which states the following re pre-sets:

1. Tune into the station to be memorised with the tuning key.

2. When the memory write key is depressed the memory write key indicator lights continuously for about 5 seconds after the FCCS operation with FM reception and immediately with AM reception. One of the 10 preset keys is depressed for memorising the station while the indicator is lit. When the key is depressed the indicator goes off, the memorizing operation is completed and the next time you want ot listen to the station it can be recalled by depressing the corresponding preset key.
If the preset key is depressed during this interval and the FCCS data & broadcassting station are memorised the indicator goes off.

There is more but I think this should be enough to get you going.

Cheers
Graham
