Question about Sony ICF-SW1000T AM/FM/SW Radio

Open Question

FM distortion Changing IF filters for more narrow type (230kHz bandwidth) the set is having slightly distorted sound on exact frequency (on medium to weak signal strength), but no distortion when moved 0.05MHz (one step) up. The best sensitivity is on the exact tuned frequency and now I can not decide if it is due to PLL oscillator frequency alignment or FM tracking alignment problem (stereo comes O.K.).

SOURCE: My sw77 has distortion on fm stations when there

A bit late on this..... Sounds like a fault with the electrolytic capacitors. This can be repaired, please email me.... Rod ( )

I have an Eton G3 recently purchased which has an operators manual, but does not contain any references to the layout of the buttons etc. I would like a link to find out the correct use of the radio

The buttons are marked and the use of most of them is self-evident.
The number keys are used to enter frequencies (direct tuning).
Lock locks the radio and prevent changes (trurning ON or OFF, changing frequency, any function change is blocked)
Sleep sets a timer.
+, - go up or down in frequency, or when you are setting time.
U/LSB is for toggling Upper or Lower Side Bands.
Auto Up and Auto Down are for the automatic tuning system (scanning the frequency spectrum)
AM is for switching to the AM (medium wave band)
AM/Meter band is for switching to the Short wave bands, and FM is for Frequency modulation band.
VOL + and - increase and decrease volume levels

Page/time: It has 700 memory locations to store frequencies. These are organized in pages (maybe up to 100 pages). You jump to next page with that button. Used also when setting time . Please read the instructions.

F1 to F7 are used to select the day for the alarm. F1 for Day 1, Sunday, F2 for Monday, etc) You can set an alarm for each day of the week.
Reset to reset configuration
TZ/Line in TZ set time zone, Line In if you wan to use the speaker of the radio as the output device for a signal from some other radio, or MP3 player
The tuning knob may also be used to change the displayed value while setting time (I can't remember exactly. You have the manual)
Erase erasing a stored frequency or a page (Check that)
Copy see above.

Slightly off frequency is it possible to correct

I assume it is digital tuning?
If it is digital tuning the answer is no.
Sometimes reception is better when you purposely mis-tune by one digit lower or higher than the stations call numbers.
If it is under warranty, try exchanging it or just listen to and compare another one or more of the same model to hear if they are all slightly off frequency.

2012 cvo streetglide, loss of clarity and amp for rear speakers

Swapping the amp will have no effect on FM reception. I'm shocked that the factory would even recommend that. It's probably just a bad tuner pack in the radio. Get it replaced

Sony ICF ICF 77 Receiver has intermittent Low Frequency distortion burst when tune exactly to the center of an FM frequency, say 102.5 mHz. When radio is tuned .5 mHz. + or - of the main channel frequency...

Usual problem of these receivers is faulty capacitors. Recommend replacement of all surface mount capacitors and alignment. Contact me .... poikaa(at)yahoo(dot)com

Sony icf-sw77 - listening to FM if station feq is 102.0 it's distorted so have to tune to 102.05 - what's wrong here? It's the same for all FM stations AM seems fine...

Common problem and will need realignment and / or capacitor replacement. Usually on a few are bad but I recommend all to be replaced. Contact me .... poikaa(at)yahoo(dot)com

My dewalt am /fm radio turns on but no sound.?

Ensure the volume is up,try tuning on all frequencies and ensure you are on the right bandwidth. If you still don't get a signal then check your speakers to see if they aren't disconnected in anyway they might be faulty and need replacement or it might just be a wire that needs to be soldered properly.

Check thoroughly to see if the wires connecting the speakers are still intact.

I just got grunding 800 radio,no reception either am,fm ,sw please help me.

This is valid for the Satellit 750 by Eton (current owner of Grundig)
When you use it the first time you go through a system code setting to fix the memory page configuration, the AM gap between stations, the type of batteries and FM frequency range.
If it is used in North Ameraica, you are told not to go through procedure but do it any way.
SYSTEM Code setting
Turn Radio off and press a quick short press on the ENTER Button. -- appears on the upper right corner of the display
1. The first code could be 00, 20,25 or 50, meaning the memory is divided into 10, 20, 25, or 50 pages.
2. The second code fixes the AM frequency gap between stations. Enter 09 for 9kHz or 10 for 10 kHz (in North America)
The 3rd code selects the type of batteries used 29 for D size batteries (1.5V each) or 28 for rechargeable batteries (1.2 V each)

The 4th code concerns the FM frequency range: 76 for a range 76-108 MHz (for Japan) or 87 for a range 87-108 MHz

Read your manual to see how the procedure is performed, or try this one valid for the Satellit 750. It might work. Go through all the procedure and press ENTER to confirm system code.

My ATS-909 has developed a problem. In every

I left mine under my bed for 2 years, when I turned it on it sounded very distorted. I took it apart and found the speaker to be faulty, I suspect my under floor heating may have had something to do with it. The internet suggests it's a fairly common problem. People seem to agree a sony 7600 speaker is the best replacment.

The AM frequencies are not correct cant change

For many years now AM transmissions have been in multiples of 9kHz starting at 531kHz on the Medium Waveband and usually ending at 1620kHz. Some 'illegal' transmissions may be 'off ' these official frequencies!
