YB 300 PE

I have had good service from this radio until suddenly this week it would not turn on. Thinking it was batteries, I replaced them. However it appears to be the on button itself, as the light works. Can anyone shed some light? Dave

    I have the same problem and I still can't get it to work. I can't understand why the light would still work but not the radio. I'll probably never buy a piece of Grundig gear again.

    I had this same problem. Tried the reset button suggestion and it worked!

    Before this I would just keep taking out the batteries and putting them in again and eventually it would work again.

    It has a split second switch of the display like it wants to turn on, but it won't. Replacing batteries and resetting multiple times doesn't seem to help.

    On/Off button doesn't respond, despite pushing the reset button
    underneath the batteries and rearranging the batteries. Light
    works, and I am able to set the time just fine. But otherwise the
    radio is inert.

I had the same problem. Changed batteries but no on/off response. Light worked fine. Finally read some solutions here and found the little red reset button under the batteries. Used a ball point pen to push it in, heard it click, replaced the batteries and all is good. Love this little radio.

The reset button worked fine for me, too,  BUT now the volume is too high to listen to.  The volume control knob makes the volume go from very high to very very very high.  there is no soft setting any more.  Any help PLEASE?

Same problem. Plugged in an external power supply and it worked. Reset button didn't help. So for now I have to use it with external power. It is odd that the batteries are OK and the light works from batteries, just not the power button.

There is a small reset button underneath the batteries on this radio.  You might try removing the batteries and press this button with the head of a ball point pen.  I have had to do this several times with mine.  Once I put the batteries back in, it seems to work properly.

My 4 year old YB P 2000 suddenly quit broadcasting AM. I took the radio apart and cleaned everything. Now only some FM stations and no SW reception. Can you help?


Look at the front case and locate reset hole. Insert cocktale stick or similar and listen for slight click. Insert new batteries, ensuring correct polarity and that there has been no leakage from old batteries on terminals. If leakage ie green/ uneven appearance, try to scrape clean with suitable implement when disconnected from mains only.

My Grundig 300PE was a Christmas gift, 2009. One week later, it won't turn on. I've installed new batteries and it won't work on the external power source either. The "light" works, but nothing else will...


Lets find that receipt and get it fixed under warranty pronto. as it's a gift and you may not be able to get the receipt, go back to the place of purchase and plead plead plead!
Good Luck

YB 550 PE


When radio is first turned on, it goes into "sleep" mode that you can set between 1 min to 2 hrs. (You'll see the number on the screen). If you hold the "on" button longer, you'll see (yb-550) on the screen and the radio will remain on until you turn it off.

No am radio


You realize that the MW is the AM stations....I don't know
why they didn't just put AM on the band select...
Also I could not get MW (AM) on my set once and the
reason was that it was too close to my laptop...
It was interfering with the radio.....

Buttons Don't Work


I would strongly lean towards factory service. Sounds like the circuit board has problems.

Good luck.
