Unable to tune in to programmes on LW, MW and SW bands. FM working fine


Hi,
If you are experiencing bad or NONE AM (MW) reception ,if your receiver has an external antenna connection point here is the solution... It should also have a ground connection as it is rare such a point does not accompany an external antenna connection.
The problem with MW reception is the vast frequency range of the MW band as" 540-1760kHz "
means nighttime fade out, and even heavy static and distortion..( less than SW )
in order to receive a station on LW and MW bands you need to have a "Loop Antenna " that normally supplied by manufacturer..if you cant locate it ,you can buy it in any electronic store..it is a very cheap accessory..additionally both LW and MW works good in daytime with powerful radio stations in your vicinity ..espacially LW..not much stations on these days..except in Europa..MW works better and more stations come after sunset ..
SW band is a little bit different.if you really want to listen SW in depth ,and if your receiver has multiple SW bands as well ,you then need special SW antenna to be attached to your receiver..otherwise it is not worth to listen it due to heavy static and distortion on the band..,unless you want it..just for testing and to see what is available in your area pls attack a plain wire (about 1 meter ) to ext antenna plug and try to search it..if you desire to learn shortwave -Listen To The World please visit the URL below.

I just bought the RCA CD/DVD home theater system RTD206. I cant figure out how to change the radio channels. Also cant figure out how to change the cd disk tracks. Does this system have a remote. Or do...


The system does have a remote (at least it should come with one if purchased new), and you need it to control pretty much everything. Here's what the manual says about the radio tuner (you can find the whole manual here) :

Manual Tuning
1. Connect the FM aerial and the AM loop antenna at the back of the unit. Rotate the AM loop for
better reception.
2. Press TUNER to enter TUNER mode and toggle between FM and AM.
3. When the FM station broadcasts Stereo sound, ST is displayed.
4. Tune a station by pressing repeatedly the TUNER+/- buttons until the desired station is found.
Alternatively, you can press and hold the same buttons down for about one second to activate
the automatic search function. In this mode the player will automatically tune frequencies until
it finds a station.
5. Repeat step 4 to tune to another radio station.

Storing radio stations
The player can store up to 30 radio stations in its memory. You can enter every single radio station
yourself or the player can store all available radio stations automatically in ascending order.
Automatic preset programming
1. Press TUNER to enter the Tuner mode.
2. Press and hold TUNER down for 3 seconds to start automatic preset programming.
Note: A weak signal can affect the "Automatic preset programming" function's efficiency. Adjust the aerial for better
reception and a more efficient search.
3. Radio frequencies will be browsed and radio stations stored automaitcally. When all the available
radio stations are stored or all 30 memory locations are full, the auto preset programming
function will stop.

Manual preset
1. Tune to a radio station (see "Manual tuning" for details).
2. Press MEMORY once to enter flashing Preset Loaction number.
3. While the Preset Location number is still flashing, input your desired preset number (1-30) using
the numeric buttons or press the CH+/- buttons, then press MEMORY to store it.

Retrieving preset stations
1. Press TUNER to enter the Tuner mode.
2. Press CH+/- to search up or down for the preset stations or directly press the numeric buttons.

As you see, you really need that remote. The same is true for disc play. While there are front panel buttons for play/stop, disc skip, and drawer open/close, you don't have any other control without the remote. Without the remote control you'll find this system won't do too much, unfortunately. If you bought this new, check the packing material before you throw it away to make sure the remote's not still somewhere in the box. They often come tucked into slots on the foam inserts.

Also, when you hook the unit to a TV, it's just using the TV as a video display device. The TV has nothing to do with any of the system's other functions.

I hope you have luck locating the remote! Thanks for using Fixya.

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.

Don't have a manual or the remote for KLH audio video receiver model r5100. Cannot figure out how to program the presets on the am/fm radio. Can someone tell me how or do I have to have a rermote to...


There should be numbered buttons on the receiver.Set the channel to what you want to preset,then press and hold down the numbered button you want.The sound will probably go away for a couple of seconds but when it comes back on the channel is preset.If you press the band button while you're already on FM and it goes to another FM,you can also preset more channels for FM.There should only be one AM band,then it will switch back to FM.
Good luck! Greg

Can't Get A Radio Signal When I Connect A Cox Cable


Hi...
Some cable companies dont put the FM band on cable and some others put an FM trap (which kills the FM band) in line with the cable.
One of those is your problem.
You'll need to buy a FM antenna
