SOURCE: SAMSUNG ALIAS WILL ONLY POWER ON IF PLUGGED IN TO THE CHARGER

battery may show fully charged while charging, but it can noot hold the charge. So you need a new battery. If under warranty ask Verizon for replacement.

hey, make sure that the simcard that you are using is supported by your celphone, the one that they called openline means all networks or simcards can be use with it.

Eton e5 sw shot


The SW FET preamp transistor, Q1, on the underside of the circuit board blows if a static electric discharge hits the whip antenna. In my case, a cat rubbing against me & the radio on a very dry winter day did it in. The back & circuit board has to be removed to get at it. The micro transistor & the solder connection are very tiny, so hard to replace. The antenna jack should still work, because the preamp is only for the whip antenna's SW reception. An easier solution would be to just run a wire from the antenna jack to the whip antenna, but you would no longer have the whip's preamp benefits, or just use a longwire antenna connected to the jack for SW. Also beware plugging into the jack disables the AM ferrite antenna inside, so you might not want anything plugged into it for AM reception because the internal ferrite seems to perform better than any external antenna.

Am fm reception bad


FM reception is weak



What to do


• Extend the power cord as much as possible. The FM antenna is in the power cord.


• Move the power cord to adjust the FM antenna

• If you still have problems with FM reception, you may need an external antenna.


* Call Bose®Customer Service to request one.


The external antenna on your radio is a coax (round) design It needs an adaptor and an antenna which are cheap.


Easy to make, radio shack "F" connector 90 degrees or straight, to 300 ohm wire connections. Attatch a 300 ohm flat ribbon antenna cable to those two screws and plug into radio and see how your reception is. You will need to position the antenna wires to get best reception. I have hid them in back of paintings and so on.


Cheapest solution next to putting an extension cord on radio power cord.

I am having very poor FM reception with my Bose Radio wave system. Is there an external antenna that can be attached?


The power cord is the antenna and it should be stretched out straight for best possible reception. You could experiment with re-orienting the Bose, too.

There is a threaded 75-ohm coaxial FM External connector. You could probably get a compatible FM antenna at an electronics store.

See the manual, Page 10

I have a problum with my nuvi 610/660 not recieving satellite signals?


I have repaired literally hundreds of the 6xx series units with reception issues. In most cases, the problem is caused by a defective part on the GPS receiver board, located in the flip-up GPS/Antenna assembly.

In many cases, reception can be restored by connecting an external antenna to the unit. The defective part causes the unit to only look for signals at the external antenna port. In some cases, the part may prevent reception with both the internal or external antenna. In this case, the part must be replaced. Firmware upgrades will NOT fix this problem. It is a hardware problem caused by an electrostatic discharge.

For more information about this problem and how to have it repaired, please see this link:

Improve reception


HI there,

Well Yes you can improve the reception, please follow the below steps -

Improve FM Radio Reception -
 
1. If you don't have an antenna connected to your FM receiver, purchase a simple dipole antenna--a simple T-shape flexible wire-- and connect it to the FM antenna inputs on the receiver. Because FM signals are directional, you'll want to experiment with the positioning of the wire to find the best reception of the station you're trying to receive.
 
2. If you're still not getting a good signal, try an indoor amplified antenna, which you'll find at an electronics store. Don't buy one unless you get a guarantee that you can return it for full credit if it doesn't solve your reception problems.
 
3. If your signal is weak because you live a long way from the transmitter, install an outside antenna and mount it as high as is practical. If you're primarily interested in getting signals from one station or from a group of stations in one direction, get a directional antenna and point it toward the transmitters.
 
4. If you're using a portable FM radio where the only antenna is the power cord, stretch the cord as straight as possible and experiment with positioning again.
 
5. Temporarily switch to monaural mode to improve a weak signal on an FM receiver.


Improve AM Reception -
 
1. Gradually rotate the radio 360 degrees. Leave it in the position where it sounds best.
 
2. Reverse the AC plug if it isn't polarized. (If you can flip the plug over, then it's non-polarized.)
 
3. Plug the radio into a different AC outlet.
 
4. Move the radio closer to a window.
 
5. Experiment to learn if appliances and powered products in your home are causing interference: computer monitor, television, electric blanket, light dimmer, fluorescent light, hair dryer, air conditioner, smoke detector. If possible, turn off the offending item. Otherwise, move the radio to another room.
 
6. Upgrade to an external antenna if your receiver, tuner or radio has a place to connect one.
 
7. Buy a passive AM antenna that doesn't need to be connected to a radio or receiver.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Razr V# lost service after using external antenna


I have the same problem. Contacted 3rd party tech, take sharp pick or equal and there is supposedly a button in the very center of the antenna port of the phone. gently push the pick in the center of the jack and it will trip the switch. I tried it on my second damaged phone and it worked, so far.

Internal Antenna not working anymore


if you do a search at pdaphonehome.com a guy has replaced his antenna and provided step by step instructions for how to do it yourself with pictures. I don't know if frying it can make sure getting a new antenna will fix that but thats something you can try before replacing.

While in the truck, make sure the antenna is on the outside of the truck. It has magnet so it is easy to stick to the roof. Do not know what to say about the home antenna, mine is not working right now.
