Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I bought a Grundig S350DL for my husband for his birthday from Radio Shack. The floor model was the last one available so I bought it. The sales person said it was warranted the same as if new. He had it for a couple of months but didn't really play it much because we were busy. One night we decided to take it out on the deck and while he was turning the antennae around to get a better signal, the anntenae broke. He took it back to Radio Shack. Radio Shack would not return it because they said it was past the 30 day return period and we had not purchased an extended warranty program. They told us to contact Grundig. My husband called and explained the problem to a technical person who said he would mail us a replacement antennae. That was about a month ago and we still have not received the anntenae. I order things throug the mail. I ordered Front Line from Austrailia and received it after he was told the antennae would be sent and the Front Line came about 10 days ago. Then I ordered books from Amazon about 10 days ago and they came today. We still have not received the anntenae. I was wondering if the anntenae was actually sent out or not and if not why?

Despite their renouned customer service, the folks in Palo Alto do get forgetfull on occasion. I asked for a new manual and had to call twice.

Call them again. The worst scenario is you wind up with two!

Grundig S350DL - blew it out? I used a plugin 12 V instead of the 6V 500ma I should have - is it repairable and if yes, where in Minneapolis MN area could I find a repair shop?

No you have not blown it up. You have most likely blown an internal fuse mounted on the board, or blown a protection diode, or a regulator transistor. these are cheap items. The work will cost more than the parts for sure. Look for a radio repair shop, or a tv repair shop in the yellow pages. There might be a Grundig dealer near by that will recommend a service center. not all places work on gear like they did in the past. If you know someone that works on CB gear might do the job or ask for local ham he will just charge for parts. Your radio is not a lost cause, they build against this kind of thing. I remember the first time I did this very things, 30 years ago. Good luck.

I have a Grundig radio S350DL and I cannot switch off the sleep function and therefore the radio automatically switches off after 30 mins. or so . Can you advise? Les. Akers

The Power and Sleep Functions share the same button. If you press the Power/Sleep button repeatedly you see numbers displayed 90, 75 60, ... 01. These are the duration of the sleep functions. If you stop at 60 the radio will work for 60 minutes then turns itself off. This must be a battery saving feature so that a radio will not be on for ever. Suppose the radio has been on for a while (long or short) and you want to turn it off without waiting for the sleep timer. Just press the Power/Sleep button.

We have a Grundig S350DL radio that was my father's. There is no manual. FM works great. Can't get AM. Radio turns off on its own!! Any suggestions?

The problem you are having may be due to some configuration settings (such as a timer). Not dtecting the AM signal, may be due to interference from power lines. To improve AM reception (if there is something to improve) one should rotate the radio to orient the internal ferrite antenna. Using the radio close to a window can improve reception.
To enable you to diagnose the problems that may be due to some configuration setting I give you the link to the radio's manual.

Hope it helps.

Grundig S350 not powering on

Is there any easy self-fix that can be done to get the radio working again?

Nope. I'll bet you have some corrosion inside the switch itself.
Unless you can disassemble that you will have to send it in. If the switch had metal contacts, you could try just a tiny shot of cleaner in the switch, then work it off and on.

If you are able to get to the switchs' contacts, you can short those and see if the radio powers up. Just make sure that you have the right connections.

Bad idea bout wpraying it down with cleaner. If that suff gets in the coild or other parts like the tiny tuning capacitor, it can melt together inside, or at least cause it to be off frequency.
Good luck,

Grundig S350DL needs a am aerial to bring in the

1. run 18 gauge wire (buy in auto parts shelf), after stripping plastic (about 1/2 inch) away from wire inside. Clip where RED clip is, on back of radio. Need about 6 to 10 feet. Run wire in upwards direction from radio. At other end of wire, strip enough to make small loop back onto itself. (terminates the wire.) Run another length of same wire from BLACK clip on back of radio, strung along floor of room - 6 feet, maybe. Yes, hide it if it does not please somebody's eyes. Now, you have an AM external antenna.
2. Go to E-Bay, "slinkyantennas". They have a very good-looking, and performs for DX'ing antenna. Use same wire from RED clip, stripped, for alligator clip from 'slinky' shop's antenna to grab hold.

--With s350dl (NPR version-before major t-storm did kaputs, learned good lesson ... always use batteries, not A/C), and slinky pvc-style antenna with ground wire, was able from Central Louisiana, to pick up KOA from Denver!

Grundig S350DL shuts itself off

The default mode for this radio is in "sleep-timer." You can adjust the time it stays on or you can hold the On/Off button down for a few seconds as you turn it on. (You'll notice the "bed" icon no longer appears.)

Intermittent volume level

Radio Shack does provide a volume control cleaner that you could gently spray to clean the contacts, but you may simply have a defective knob. (The first S350DL I bought had a defective volume control.) Don't hesitate to call Eton Customer Service either.

I hate to say this, but I've become a little wary of buying radios at Radio Shack. I have a suspicion that occasionaly radios that are returned get "recycled" back into stock rather than sent back to the manufacturer. I had to return 2 radios directly to Eton / Grundig after getting back to back defectives at RS.
