Have you tried opening up the radio and spraying contact cleaner into the volume potentiometer? This is a common problem in older electronics. The RF 888 has 4 screws on the back. Remove those and you can lift off the back cover. (Be careful because those screws pass through the center of the radio and hold the front cover in place.) Get some electronic cleaner at Radio Shack and spray it into the small opening on the side of the volume control. Rotate the volume several times and let the spray evaporate and see if things sound better.

Hello,sounds as if its an older reciever and the control is simply dirty(dusty) . What i would recommend (if you can access it) is simply spraying contact cleaner into the control .Contact cleaner can be purchased at a radio shack or online ,just get a quick drying one and do it while its unplugged.

My portable electohome radio model EA15OK sitting on my night table makes a loud buzzing noise when my light is turned on.


It sounds like you understand the mode that causes the noise. What kind of light is it? Some lights emit RF so it wouldn't be a mystery that a radio would pick it up.

Radio Panasonic RF-4900 - no power


Just spent the afternoon with an RF4900 with a power problem. The set was intermittent. Found on the back of the set where the ac plugs in, there is a switch that is ingaged when the ac plugs into the set. If the ac cord is old it might not be engaging this switch when the cord is plugged into the set. The switch controls ether battery power or ac power.

If the sub has a volume control, turn it down then turn up the volume on the amp to the very high volume you mentioned. If it still has very low muffled sound, then we know the problem is about the amp.
