SONY MHC-EX50

Het is al een paar weken verder, maar ik ben eruit: C161 en C162 (100uF/35V) in de voeding zijn slecht.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
wel 105 graden elco's gebruiken en hoger dan 35 volt, liefst 100v
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
et gaat dus om een VFD (Vacuum Fluorescent Display) die geen gloeispanning krijgt. Het vervangen van C161 en C162 lost het probleem helemaal op.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Radio: ST-EX100
Amp: TA-EX50
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Symptome=Tuner-Display zeigt nichts an, sonst Tuner OK.
Defekt=C161 und C162 (100µF,35 V) auf der Tunerplatine ersetzen.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wenn bei dem Sony-Tuner RDS EON ST-EX100 (z.B. zu der Anlage Sony MHC-EX5, aber auch MHC-EX 70) pünktlich eine Woche nach Ende der Garantiezeit die Beleuchtung im Display wegfällt und man deshalb leider keine Sender mehr programmieren kann, dann handelt es sich vermutlich um eine fiese Soll-Bruchstelle.

Auf der Platine des Tuners sind zwei Kondensatoren zu schwach ausgelegt und gehen zwangsweise früher oder später kaputt. Die Reparatur ist ganz einfach. Man kauft zwei neue Kondensatoren (100µF,35 V) - kosten nur ein paar Cent! - und besorgt sich einen Lötkolben. Dann schraubt man den Tuner auf, entfernt auf der Platine die Kondensatoren C161 und C162 (die sind namentlich gekennzeichnet) und ersetzt sie durch die neuen.

It looks like your problem might be an easy fix, at least. If the gear train between the motor and clock got stripped, you'd be in a bit more trouble. If the motor just isn't spinning, remove it from the side of the clock housing. There are 2 screws (or nuts) holding it in place. When you get it off, the cover for the motor will also be off. Apply some 3 in 1 oil, or perhaps just a tiny bit of penetrating oil, and give it a spin. From what I've read, it should do just fine. A lot of people use wd40, but I understand that can gum up over time.

This is a "at your own risk" type of repair, but as long as you unplug it before dismantling the radio, I think you'll be fine.

Your radio should have come with a receiver of some sort for the radio signals to set itself. I had this same issue with my clock when the battery in the receiver died ... try replacing this too. It took me forever to figure out what it was because I had forgotten that it had its own radio receiver ... then once I remembered it existed, I had to find it, but replacing the battery fixed the problem. Hope that helps :-)
