    I have had my radio about a year now, and it now shuts off after a minute. Holding the power button down no longer works, and even shuts off after a minute even when setting the timer to 90 or 75 or 45 etc. Any solutions?

The default mode for this radio is in "sleep-timer." You can adjust the time it stays on or you can hold the On/Off button down for a few seconds as you turn it on. (You'll notice the "bed" icon no longer appears.)

Grundig S350DL - blew it out? I used a plugin 12 V instead of the 6V 500ma I should have - is it repairable and if yes, where in Minneapolis MN area could I find a repair shop?


No you have not blown it up. You have most likely blown an internal fuse mounted on the board, or blown a protection diode, or a regulator transistor. these are cheap items. The work will cost more than the parts for sure. Look for a radio repair shop, or a tv repair shop in the yellow pages. There might be a Grundig dealer near by that will recommend a service center. not all places work on gear like they did in the past. If you know someone that works on CB gear might do the job or ask for local ham he will just charge for parts. Your radio is not a lost cause, they build against this kind of thing. I remember the first time I did this very things, 30 years ago. Good luck.

I have a Grundig radio S350DL and I cannot switch off the sleep function and therefore the radio automatically switches off after 30 mins. or so . Can you advise? Les. Akers


The Power and Sleep Functions share the same button. If you press the Power/Sleep button repeatedly you see numbers displayed 90, 75 60, ... 01. These are the duration of the sleep functions. If you stop at 60 the radio will work for 60 minutes then turns itself off. This must be a battery saving feature so that a radio will not be on for ever. Suppose the radio has been on for a while (long or short) and you want to turn it off without waiting for the sleep timer. Just press the Power/Sleep button.

Grundig s350, installed new batteries and radio keeps shutting off by itself


When you press the Power/Sleep button the radio turns on and displays a number 90, or some other numbers. This is the play time that the radio will stay on then turns itself off. It could be that yours is configured with a sleep timer set to 01 minute, 10 or 15. You need to set the timer for a longer period. Thus we turn it on by pressing the Power/Sleep button, read the timer length then press again. Keep making short presses: The timer will cycle through all preset sleep timer durations. Select the length you want.

Probably more than $40 and that is the buy it now price on eBay at this link:

Note that the opening price is only $25. Suggest you get a "new" used radio as a cost effective option. Alternative: buy (now relatively inexpensive) NiMH rechargeable batteries and run your P2000 on them.

We have a Grundig S350DL radio that was my father's. There is no manual. FM works great. Can't get AM. Radio turns off on its own!! Any suggestions?


Hello,
The problem you are having may be due to some configuration settings (such as a timer). Not dtecting the AM signal, may be due to interference from power lines. To improve AM reception (if there is something to improve) one should rotate the radio to orient the internal ferrite antenna. Using the radio close to a window can improve reception.
To enable you to diagnose the problems that may be due to some configuration setting I give you the link to the radio's manual.

Hope it helps.

Grundig S350DL needs a am aerial to bring in the


1. run 18 gauge wire (buy in auto parts shelf), after stripping plastic (about 1/2 inch) away from wire inside. Clip where RED clip is, on back of radio. Need about 6 to 10 feet. Run wire in upwards direction from radio. At other end of wire, strip enough to make small loop back onto itself. (terminates the wire.) Run another length of same wire from BLACK clip on back of radio, strung along floor of room - 6 feet, maybe. Yes, hide it if it does not please somebody's eyes. Now, you have an AM external antenna.
2. Go to E-Bay, "slinkyantennas". They have a very good-looking, and performs for DX'ing antenna. Use same wire from RED clip, stripped, for alligator clip from 'slinky' shop's antenna to grab hold.

--With s350dl (NPR version-before major t-storm did kaputs, learned good lesson ... always use batteries, not A/C), and slinky pvc-style antenna with ground wire, was able from Central Louisiana, to pick up KOA from Denver!

Intermittent volume level


Radio Shack does provide a volume control cleaner that you could gently spray to clean the contacts, but you may simply have a defective knob. (The first S350DL I bought had a defective volume control.) Don't hesitate to call Eton Customer Service either.

I hate to say this, but I've become a little wary of buying radios at Radio Shack. I have a suspicion that occasionaly radios that are returned get "recycled" back into stock rather than sent back to the manufacturer. I had to return 2 radios directly to Eton / Grundig after getting back to back defectives at RS.
