Question about Grundig YB 400PE AM/FM/SW Radio

Display hard to read

The station, etc display is very hard to read as is the labels adjacent to the display. Using new batteries or household outlet doesn't help. The radio otherwise is working correctly.Is the display just wearing out? The raio is not that old.

Re: display hard to read

My radio was dropped and parts of the display disappeared, but the display did not break. Unless you have some background in radio repair, DO NOT attempt this repair! If you do, it is at your risk, or the risk of damaging your radio! I disassembled the radio and found the display. There are 2 "rubber strips" that fit next to the LCD. I cleaned and reseated the strips and display about 3 times before getting it right. AGAIN, unless you know what you are doing, and can solder on circuit boards with a proper pencil iron, don't even contemplate it! Let someone who can do it.

After battery ran low, now radio will not power up with power button.

Make sure you don't have the HOLD button engaged. This button is what keeps your station buttons, power, etc., from accidently switching when you bump it.

This button is found on the top right hand side of the radio if you are looking down on the radio with the clock display facing you.

If the button is showing the red painted mark, you have the HOLD button engaged. Switch it off, and then press the Power button to turn on the radio.

I just got grunding 800 radio,no reception either am,fm ,sw please help me.

This is valid for the Satellit 750 by Eton (current owner of Grundig)
When you use it the first time you go through a system code setting to fix the memory page configuration, the AM gap between stations, the type of batteries and FM frequency range.
If it is used in North Ameraica, you are told not to go through procedure but do it any way.
SYSTEM Code setting
Turn Radio off and press a quick short press on the ENTER Button. -- appears on the upper right corner of the display
1. The first code could be 00, 20,25 or 50, meaning the memory is divided into 10, 20, 25, or 50 pages.
2. The second code fixes the AM frequency gap between stations. Enter 09 for 9kHz or 10 for 10 kHz (in North America)
The 3rd code selects the type of batteries used 29 for D size batteries (1.5V each) or 28 for rechargeable batteries (1.2 V each)

The 4th code concerns the FM frequency range: 76 for a range 76-108 MHz (for Japan) or 87 for a range 87-108 MHz

Read your manual to see how the procedure is performed, or try this one valid for the Satellit 750. It might work. Go through all the procedure and press ENTER to confirm system code.

I just bought a portable radio Grundig G8 Traveler II Digital. I would like to change the temperature display from Farenheit to Celsius. Is it possible? How could I do it? Thank you Frank Lomas

To commute from °F to °C : simply press the button labeled 9/10k for two seconds to change the medium wave station spacing from 10 KHz to 9 KHz.

My ICF-SW7600 has a clipping sound when first

It's hard to describe a sound in words, so I'm not sure I know what your "clipping sound" sounds like. You may be describing what's called "motorboating", which is a loud rapid putt-putting that drowns out the desired sound until it fades away. This is usually due to power supply problems, most often caused by bad filter capacitors. If I remember this model correctly, it doesn't have a built-in supply so you need to run it with an external adapter. That may be the source of your trouble. Try a different adapter or use battery power to see if the problem goes away.

If this problem only shows up when you're tuned to the station on 93.9, your radio may be picking up some kind of interference. It's also possible (but very unlikely) that the radio itself is producing a "birdie", which is a false signal on some frequency. If this is the case, it's a very obscure problem that may be very hard to find.

Sorry I can't be more precise, but maybe this will get you started. Thanks for using Fixya!

are you aware if the AA battery are weak it looses it radio station.if u replace the AA battery already the display board should be replace. in case it need 2 or 3 board go for max cost repair rather than replacing individual parts by your self it will cost u more. at the center they can discount the cost of the repair ask for max cost if needed.

Will not hold a preset station or time

Hi the only other problem it could be is it should have a button battery inside that keeps the memory with power whilst its not plugged into mains.
If it hasnt been used for while this might be flat or if is being used regular then the chances are you need this replacing let me know how you get n ill help you more the button battery is about the size of a bottle top it might have come loose or just not working but you need to remove the case to do this let me know how you get on ok

No Battery Power

Late with this answer.... Battery tabs sometimes loose contact with signal board near volume slide, possible solution is to reapply solder and bend contacts slightly.

Portable fm/am/sw radio
