Question about Sangean ATS 505 AM/FM/SW Radio
I did not use my Sangean ATS 505 for three or four months. It was working on batteries in April or May. When I put in new batteries today it would not turn on, and when I plugged in its usual 6 Volt DC adapter, "tip negative," it still would not come on. Radio Shack might fix it. A couple of years ago they charged $45 to fix any problem with one of their short wave radios. Maybe my ATS 505 can be fixed without takinbg it to be repaired. Does anyone have any ideas what might be wrong with the power supply?
Make sure no other buttons are held down when powering up, although you usually see a clock on the display if there is power but the unit is locked up for another reason. The fact that you've tried batteries and you've tried the PSU suggests to me that there is some other problem with the radio, it could be as simple as a dry joint, but without experiencing the same problem myself it's not possible to suggest anything further.
