I have a Proton model 320 AM/FM clock radio. The tuning knob no longer works. Any suggestions on where I can go to have it fixed? Do you think it would be worth it?

Selecting a Time Zone
1. Press the ATOMIC ON/OFF button (Fig. 3) to turn off the atomic time function.
To indicate you are at the off position, the atomic time icon (Fig. 2) will be removed from the display.
2. Toggle through the DST/TIME ZONE button (Fig. 3) until you reach your desired time zone. (P - Pacific Standard Time, M - Mountain Standard Time, C - Central Standard Time, E - Eastern Standard Time)
3. Once you have selected your time zone, press the ATOMIC ON/OFF button again to turn on the atomic time function. To indicate you are at the on position, the atomic time time icon will reappear with flashing antenna bands. (When the antenna bands appear flashing the unit is searching for the atomic time signal.)
4. If the atomic time icon disappears afterwards, the atomic time signal is not available at that moment. Try setting the unit in other locations. Remember to place the unit away from sources of interference such as mobile phones, appliances, TV etc.
5. The atomic time icon will appear on screen if the atomic time reception is successful. (The antenna bands will stop flashing when atomic time reception is successful.) The radio-controlled clock will have a daily synchronization at 1:00 am everyday. If previous attempts of reception were unsuccessful, the home receiver will attempt synchronization each hour until successful. Each reception cycle ranges from 2 - 10 minutes.

Manual Setting of Clock
1. Press the HOUR button (Fig 1) until you reach the correct hour.
2. Press the MIN button (Fig 1) until you reach the correct minute.
3. Press the BACKLIGHT HI/LOW/OFF button (Fig 3) to adjust the backlight intensity.
Note: A PM indicator will appear in the upper left hand corner of the LCD display during the PM hours. Be sure to set the time for the correct 12-hour period - AM (morning) or PM (evening).

SOURCE: tuning lamp on Proton 320 clock radio

The original is an incandescent 14V 30mA bulb. Hard to get. Much easier to substitute a Blue or Green 3V 30mA LED, in series with a 470ohm 1W carbon resistor, to reduce the 14V to 3V. The LED will last almost forever. Don't forget that an LED is polarity-sensitive, and must be connected appropriately Long-leg to RED, and Short-leg to BLACK.

HOW DO I GET MY CDAB5IR STEREO DABRADIO TO WORK


The first thing is to consider what DAB signal quality you have there. It might not be strong enough. Digital radio is not like AM/FM, it simply goes off altogether if the signal is weak.

I would take it to the shop and ask for assistance, or get next to a DAB radio which does work well. Then recheck things like settings, tuning, and a good battery in it (I think that model is a smallish radio?)

How do I preset the tuner for radio stations. I've never had a problem doing this with any other stereo. But what I think should work isn't!


Not very specific. Do you have the manual?

The following is from a VSX-03TXH manual. It ain't pretty but it may help.

I'm posting it in multiple parts due to space contraints.

Chapter 6:

Using the tuner

Listening to the radio

The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and

AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and

manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the

frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a

station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can

memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving

station presets below for more on how to do this.

1 Press the FM/AM button to select the tuner.

2 Use the FM/AM button to change the band (FM or

AM), if necessary.

Each press switches the band between FM and AM.

3 Tune to a station.

There are three ways to do this:

Automatic tuning

To search for stations in the currently selected band,

press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for about a second. The

receiver will start searching for the next station,

stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for

other stations.

Manual tuning

To change the frequency one step at a time, press

TUNE ?©/??.

High speed tuning

Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.

Release the button at the frequency you want.

Improving FM stereo sound

If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when

tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press

the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono

reception mode. This should improve the sound quality

and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.

Using Neural THX

This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to

achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.

• While listening to FM radio, press AUTO/DIRECT for
Neural THX listening.

Receiver is 'cutting out' on radio signals


Does the volume go down or just signal fade?

You will need to take the top off and carfully use a air can to blow out all the dust that has accumulated in the back of the tuning knob housing. Then, very carefully spray a very small amount of WD-40 into that housing. Only one or two shots. A SHOT IS A SINGLE BURST - Like the time it takes to blink. Then turn the knob slowly back and forth about 2 times to each end. This should fix it! THanks, Mark

Buzzer instead of radio


I have this radio too and from what I have read in a review on amazon suggests alarm does not tune to DAB only FM - very annoying! Contacted Goodman customer care and they suggested it was a problem with a component but maybe it is just the design.
