Do you mean you cannot use rechargeable batteries in this device ?

If you look at those supplied with the radio, you will see that the insulating sleeve on the battery itself does not fully enclose the battery at the negative end. Inside the radio's battery compartment you can see a metallic strip next to one of the spring terminals. This is no coincidence - if you wish to use your own rechargeable NiMh batteries you should be able just to take a sharp knife to the sleeve on your preferred battery and trim it back slightly. When the metal strip in the radio can touch your battery, it should work just fine (based on my experience).

Dc011 radio works with battery but wont work when plugged in what could it be

Sounds like the mains transformer has gone. That is what reduces the mains outlet power of 110 volt to that of the batteries.

You could check the power cord though for 110 volts at the end.

Doesn't hold a charge any more.

Even rechargeable batteries need to be replaced periodically. If it is under warranty have the place where you purchased it help you. If it is not under warranty and it has a lot of charge/recharge cycles on it then open it up and remove the battery and take it to be tested first before you purchase a replacement battery.

I want to buy a battery charger. Where do I purchase?

The external power adapter for your device is for [6VDC - 1 Ampere]. You can use any adapter with this capacity to charge the battery inside the your Philips Da1000. Brand is not matter, but the voltage and current is. Just check the DC socket polarity. It is the main thing that ahs to be checked. Some sets will have outer (+ve), and some others have (Outer (--ve). This will be marked at the DC in terminal of your radio. It is best to be the set in hand, when you go to buy a new one. This adapter can be bought from most of the electronic spare parts selling shops at your town. Philips has designated as [6V direct current, positive pole to current pin] as pin confuguration for the AC adapter. If so outer ring connection will be (--ve). Anyway, make sure about it before buying a new one. OK.

We have a 7 year-old DeWalt Radio that got a bit of water in it. It now works when plugged in but not with the rechargable battery. Any ideas on how to fix that problem? Where could we take it near...

It may be that the water shorted out the battery, and draining a rechargeable totally is a sure way to kill it. If the battery was a couple of AA NiMH, and the radio was well dried out, i would say replace them and see if it works. As it is it looks like proper service people should look at it.

Check the Dewalt site

This shows as closest when I search, there is a Get directions link on the site that gives a Zoomable map.

Static on every station, no matter where i plug it or how i rotate the antennae. this just started in the last few months

Possible that you have a EMI interferance in your circuit or power which carries into the set..Use the set in the battery mode and swtich off all the mains in your house. if this solves, then check on by one the connected appliances which might produce this static. You could also take the set to another location to see if this reduces off . in this case you will have to check if there is a lurking interferance from the power source. I suppose you might not get this faultt with the FM but MW and SW is bound to pick up the static unless the signal is powerful. Please also try to check your external cords, if possible change the location of the antennae. Further any fault on the radio IFT/filters could be considered. Hope my advice helps you . Good day

My Wharfedale DA_110E radio works on the mains but not the batteries. I have tested the batteries & they are OK. The battery connections look OK & are clean.

Try rubbing the battery connections with sand paper or a shap object. If this still fails, the battery laed my have come away from the circuit board inside the radio.

If its running through batteries then its probably due to rechargeable battery else if it runs through power cord connected to mains then its totally due to manufacturing fault.
