Question about Grundig S350 AM/FM/SW Radio
This is our second Grundig s350; the first one just died. This second one (Radio Shack) worked well for a year, then the volume became sporadic. It will start out low, even when the volume is turned way up, then the volume cranks up for seconds, then back to inaudible. It does not appear to be dependent on power source (appropriate adapter or fully charged batteries). I'd love to get it fixed, hate to scrap another one! Any suggestions on fixing it? Or a comparable, more reliable replacement?
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.

In these cases, you might need to reset the radio. To reset the
S350, unplug the external adaptor (if one is being used) and
remove the batteries from the battery compartment. Insert a
pointed object, such as straightened paper clip, into the RESET hole
on the right, front side of the radio and gently press and release the
button inside the hole. Then plug in the AC adaptor or reinstall the
