Question about Sony ICF-SW35 AM/FM/SW Radio

1 Answer

My Sony ICF-SW35 AM/FM/SW Radio is not staying on-

When I turn the radio on-it stays on for 3 seconds then turns off-on the screen it shows the time-which is incorrect-above the time it says "standby" and the letter "a" above standby is a picture of a battery with a line through it. I do not have the manual which would be helpful, I also do not know how to reset the time, or set/preset the radio stations quicker. My daughter loves to use this radio and your assistance in how to get it set up and working again would be most helpful. Thank you!

Hi, I am unable to change the SW band on my ICF-SW35, everything else eems to work OK, any suggestions? Thanks Rod.

When you are in the SW-Band to change the SW-Band the key "SW BAND" doesn't do anything by itself. To select an another band you must keep one finger on this key and press the "+" key to go to an upper band or the "-" key to go to a lower band. It acts like a Ctrl or Alt key on a computer keyboard.

I have a Sony ICF 2010 (for over 20 years) and when I turn it on, the only reception I get is on the FM frequencies (+ aircraft freqs). Thank you. Alex

Late answer on this.... There is a FET problem with older radios and this could be the problem. Static can "zap" the transistor making the radio deaf on receive in the AM modes.
