Rca rt 2770 programming. My fm radio stations


You can manually program a station by pressing AM/FM to get to the correct radio band. Then tune in a station with the Tuner +/- (the left/right arrow) buttons on the remote. Next press Memory (just below 7) and then a number on the keypad. The number must be entered before the Program Preset number stops blinking. (For FM you can use some 2 digit numbers.) To scan through the stations in memory use the Channel +/- buttons on the remote or the Next/Previous track buttons on the RT2770. You could fill all of the memory slots automatically by pressing and holding the AM/FM button for two seconds. The unit will store the stations that it tunes in in order until the memory slots are full. Note: you do need to have the FM antenna and AM loop antenna connected (and extended for the FM antenna).

Retrevo has the manual for the RCA RT2770 available here: http://www.retrevo.com/support/RCA-RT2770-Home-Theater-Systems-manual/id/2869dj191/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to download the PDF.

I hope this helps.

Preseting radio stations so i don't have to use the tuning dial everytime


Most radios let you set them like this - select bandwidth FM/AM then tune to a favourite station, find the row of numbered buttons under digital display (usually 1 - 5) then press and hold button 1 for a few seconds, the station will be set to button 1, so to speak. Repeat tuning to another station then press button 2, etc...some radios have up to 15 slots per band. How many stations do you listen to....

To recall station 1, press button 1 ..button 2.......... Red.

My Philips AJ3980 radio suddenly has no sound. Also, the band "MW" appears in the display and I'm unable to tune AM stations. The clock seems okay. Thanks for your help!

How do I preset the tuner for radio stations. I've never had a problem doing this with any other stereo. But what I think should work isn't!


Not very specific. Do you have the manual?

The following is from a VSX-03TXH manual. It ain't pretty but it may help.

I'm posting it in multiple parts due to space contraints.

Chapter 6:

Using the tuner

Listening to the radio

The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and

AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and

manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the

frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a

station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can

memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving

station presets below for more on how to do this.

1 Press the FM/AM button to select the tuner.

2 Use the FM/AM button to change the band (FM or

AM), if necessary.

Each press switches the band between FM and AM.

3 Tune to a station.

There are three ways to do this:

Automatic tuning

To search for stations in the currently selected band,

press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for about a second. The

receiver will start searching for the next station,

stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for

other stations.

Manual tuning

To change the frequency one step at a time, press

TUNE ?©/??.

High speed tuning

Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.

Release the button at the frequency you want.

Improving FM stereo sound

If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when

tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press

the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono

reception mode. This should improve the sound quality

and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.

Using Neural THX

This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to

achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.

• While listening to FM radio, press AUTO/DIRECT for
Neural THX listening.

Possible solution for some of the problems listed: Turn the clock upside down so that the label is readable in the upper left area. On the right side you will find a compartment which may have two "AA" batteries installed. These back up the setting when the clock is unplugged.

To reset the clock, you will have to BOTH remove the batteries AND unplug the AC power cord. Also, make sure the batteries are not dead.

Finally, although I cannot confirm this, there is an opening directly under the label (still looking at the bottom of the clock) which appears to be a "Reset" switch. A pointed object such as a ballpoint pen or toothpick will be needed to press this recessed button. Hope this helps. Mine is working just fine.
