No more self powerd source

I have the solar powerd radio already for a few years now, but suddenly I can not anymore use it with the selfpowerd function as winding or solar power. It is still working with normal power but as that is not the purpose of this radio I would like to know if somebody has specifications to solve this problem. Any help I can use Thanks in advance Bart

Re: No more self powerd source

I assume that the rechargeable batteries have expired. The trouble is that the batteries are hard-wired into the radio itself. Unscrewing the back and carefully replacing these with similar-rated cells would be possible but difficult. A poor design, which happened to mine too.

I have had a Sony ICF SW7600 for the last 18 years. Now, it only wishes to work on batteries and not on the AC adapter anymore. What can be the problem and how to fix it

I have the exact same problem here in Europe with my perfectly with my Sony shortwave after 18 years. If I fiddle with the ac adaptor in the radio plug, it works for a while. I have replaced and soldered the yellow tip adaptor twice in 18 years and hopefully the problem is with the power plug and not the radio plug.
Any help is appreciated.

My lantern/fan/radio doesn't work when its not plugged in?

The battery probably isn't taking a charge anymore because it needs to be replaced. These batteries will sometimes last a few years but then a replacement is needed and they will likely run like new. You can check out to find a replacement battery, or you can call 1-877-28-BATTERY if you are having difficulting finding the battery you need.

ICF 2010, no sound suddenly

If the radio does not work with headphone then the external jack for audio may have broken loose from it's soldered points. Simple re solder may make the repair. Beyond that it would have to be diagnosed by a technician.

Not receiving alerts anymore...

My wr-100 came with a special note inserted with the instructions that the WR-100 was programmed to not give off an audible alert on tests. This is to supposedly protect you from thinking you have a real emergency. Mine is new. Maybe the older ones had an audible test alert. I assume yours gave an alert at one time??
