    My Makita radio shows 'E' when plugged in, but I found a break in the power cord right below the transformer. This is the whimpiest power cord I have ever seen, especially for something that is built for the job site.

    The power cord pulled apart by the transformer, so i got another one with the same amount of voltage but the radio will not work. Occasionally when I plug it in the 'E' will appear and the radio won't work, but when it does work the screen will show the radio stations but the blue back light does not come on and it does not pick up any radio signals. I'm not sure what to do in this case, do you have any suggestions?

Usually the blinking E means the backup batteries are dead.

the backup batteries are AA and should go in the lower compartment on the rear of the radio.

just make sure you install the backup (AA) batteries in first, then insert your main battery to run the unit. doing it backwards wont always clear the "E" notification

Makita worksite radio ,a sparky told me to use a plug with a low fuse in it instead of the ac adapator turned it on and it went phhhtt!!! is it ruined or is there a solution?

    It is probably broken, with and ac adapter u are actually changing the voltage from 120v to 12v . So instead of giving the radio 12v you introduced it to 10x that much. I would open it up and see if there is some sort of fuse inside. Also I wouldn't get any more advice from that sparky.

FM frequecy increases/decreases too mugh pr. step


Hi, Your post/description "the frequency increases in steps of .2 Mhz or 200Khz" refers to the increment of frequency spacing between tuning steps and is largely dependent on the radio standards of the country/region the radio is intended to be used. Assuming no hardware fault to the radio, tuning steps may be adjusted by: 1. With the radio switched off, press the Step/Band button for about 2 seconds. This will display the current FM tuning step (200Khz as in your case); 2. With the radio switched off, press the Step/Band button for about 10 seconds. This will display FM and a blinking 50Khz with a single beep sound. By rotating the Tuning Control you can increase or decrease this value. 3. pressing the Step/Band button again will move you to the tuning increments of the AM band again adjustable via the Tuning Control. 4. pressing the Step/Band button again will save the setting and complete the process. Hope this be of some help. Good luck and kind regards.

Hi I have a Makita BMR 100, the clock display is working but everything else is not. The original battery is a 18 v ni cad, also tried a 14.4 lithium iron but still no luck. am about to have a look...


Check the black DC connection on the small supply board. Bypass it. Put external 12V DC on the supply board (white and blue wire, I thought).

Frequency increases/decreases in steps of 0.2 kHz


Hi again, Seems you posted twice. A copy of my reply to your other post.... Assuming no hardware fault to the radio, tuning steps may be adjusted by: 1. With the radio switched off, press the Step/Band button for about 2 seconds. This will display the current FM tuning step (200Khz as in your case); 2. With the radio switched off, press the Step/Band button for about 10 seconds. This will display FM and a blinking 50Khz with a single beep sound. By rotating the Tuning Control you can increase or decrease this value. 3. pressing the Step/Band button again will move you to the tuning increments of the AM band again adjustable via the Tuning Control. 4. pressing the Step/Band button again will save the setting and complete the process. Hope this be of some help. Good luck and kind regards.

Remove the battery compartment door and the batteries. There should be a small hole marked "reset" under the upper battery cradle. Press (gently...until it clicks) and hold for 5 seconds. Replace batteries and try again.
