Question about Grundig FR200 AM/FM/SW/DAB Radio

Open Question

Won't stay on station

My Grundig FR-200 has problem staying on the station. It picks up static, sometimes silence, sometimes it's right on station. I've found if I keep tapping the select dial (meaning the dial for FM,SW2, SW1 and AM selection) it will eventually get the station clearly. After finally getting reception I can very carefully move it around and usually manage to keep it on station. Any bump will mess it up again. Very irritating! Any ideas?

SOURCE: AM reception

If the internal antenna is broken that means the ferrite bar is broken,that does imply that the wiring around it is cut. If the two parts are not removed, the antenna may still be able to perform correctly (just as two magnets put end to end). You can try to put it in the vicinity of another radio to see if there is any resonance effect.
Hope it helps.

SOURCE: Just bought the Grundig 800 radio on ebay. Turning

DOES IT HAVE AN "AUX" OR "TAPE" INPUT? Switch it off; If something is plugged in the jack - unplug it. That all will switch of the radio output.

Yes you have to have an antenna. Does the car not have one originally? If you changed the radio you would have unhooked a large black wire in the back of it. Or maybe it just came unplugged. Anyways without one it won't pick up ****. Good luck

I have 06 cts and my windshield wipers stay up. They won't park down. They stop up and stay there

sounds like you have a problem with the parking pawl/position on the wiper motor.some of these can be repaired by a part from the dealer as its a dealer only part and sometimes the wiper motor needs replacing.if its a motor problem you can pick up one at the wreckers instead of buying a new one.

My Denon Audio precision am fm DRa 435R Reciever will not stay on station very long. After about 30 or sometimes 45 minutes it get off station. I have it set to a local FM Station, 97.9 and it plays good...

OK,this is a fairly common problem with digital tuners, I get them from time to time in my shop, you see, what is happening is the voltage that's used to tune the set, usual;y stays rock solid, your device however is drifting off station due to this voltage changing, usually it is in the powers supply or the actual tuner itself. It can be bad capacitors, bad IC's, bad transistors, bad tuner module. Sometimes it maybe a "Dry Joint" too.
The only fix is either a replacement PSU or Tuner or indeed maybe both? One simply cannot tell exactly without examining the unit.

You need to take this unit into a Denon repair center and ask for a "Quote" as to costings etc. Once appraised of that one can proceed from there?
Contact a Denon head or local office and ask them there, for a referral to an authorised service center.

The push buttons give off static when pushed and have to be held in place to hold a station! Is there a remedy for this? The problem actually started soon after I got it.

A can of contact cleaner will usually fix the static problem unplug the unit, and use the spray tube nozzle from the back side to reach the push buttons, you will have to push them in and out to clean the contacts on each slide switch. while you are at it clean the volumne and tone pot, the same way. a good brand of contact cleaner will not affect anything in the radio but will remove any dirt from the contacts. This is the usual cause of a loud static noise in most radios. A poor contact.

As far as the push buttons not staying in, I notice the red wires from the transformer are lead around the front of the radio, perhaps one has lifted enough to block the buttons from latching. Or the latch on the buttons is worn or broken away.

Can't pick up any stations

Some Grundig models have a history of poor front end design where just a bit of static electricity will wipe out tuning. Serious flaw.
