Look on the back of the radio. There is a little door you can open near the top, not the battery compartment. Inside this little door you will find 3 individual tuning knobs for the presets. Low tech, but it works!

Cassette Deck Not Working

I know exactly what the problem is. I used to have one of these blasters and the tape drive belt has broken. I probably went through 8 belts. (it would usually happen when I pressed Record and Pause at the same time!!!) I would always take mine back to Radio Shack cause they would fix it for free (as an ongoing issue and I've seen lots of similar stories about the belts on this model), but do a little research and you should be able to get one (grab a couple ) and do it yourself. As for the blaster, it is awesome isn't it? KILLER sound. I had given mine to a friend when I bought a monster home stereo back in the day and have regretted that decision for years. Hope this helps!!

Hi...every time I turn off my RV-B90 I have to unplug it and plug it back in before I can turn it back on. Any fix for this?

This was happening on mine and here is how i fixed it.

I would hear clicking from the cassette area when i first turned it on, and the door would be jammed and i had to brute force it open. The kaboom would not shut down by using the power button or remote. Nothing!

I found the tape mechanism was getting jammed out of place because of all the gunk so I cleaned the inside with isopropyl alcohol and a q-tip then moved the mechanisms back and forth with my finger on the bottom where the tape goes over the sensor.

I powered it up with no clicking and was able to shut it off with the power button and remote again. My power issues had to do with the tape player whodathunkit.

My lasonic ghetto blaster won't come on

Make sure the switch on the back is on the correct power setting. The cord is AC and the input is DC. On batteries, switch it to DC and use tinfoil or copper wire on the left top U shaped + battery receptor. on mine, it didnt connect with batteries without metal there

No Power

Hey there,

Not sure how much you are familiar with replacing boards or transformers but, if you have never done this before - i would suggest not to. Walmart sells the Durabrand's and yours is currently going for about $20. The thermal fuse itself will probably be around $2-$5 and the transformer probably around if you find it at an electrical store or if you order it online then pay S&H along with the installation time, you pretty much will come out even (unless of course you are an electrician or have some sort of tech background). Also the surge may have also created other issues along with the transformer and you may have to spend additional money. Lightning hit our house and blewout a transistor on my TV board - i knew I could replace it, but instead went out and bought a new one thinking I may have additional issues. I bought the new one and being spiteful decided to fix my TV - I was right I would have ended up paying almost $400, so I tossed it. If you are "hell bent" on fixing your radio I would suggest checking out this FAQ before you do anything - I have found it useful before and saved some change at the same:

Good Luck and Happy Holidays..

Remote control

You need to resurface the contacts. Here's how you do it:
First, disassemble the remote. Clean the black foil pads on the circuit board with rubbing alcohol. Now take a #2 pencil and a razor and shave the graphite from the "lead" onto a piece of paper (hold the blade perpendicular to the lead, this results in a finer powder). Now that you have a nice pile of powdered graphite, blot a Q-Tip into it to saturate the cotton with graphite. Rub the graphite onto the little black pads on the rubber button membrane, and be sure to apply more graphite to the Q-Tip every 2 to 3 buttons. Blow off any excess graphite. reassemble remote and test.

Player won't turn on...period!

Did you try with batteries? If that works, the internal power supply fails. A handy person with basic knowledge of electricity measurement, some good screw-drivers, a multi-meter and a soldering iron may solve most probably the problem.( You find persons with such disease at most unexpected places) Getting spare parts in case of need maybe a little more difficult.
