My sony world radio icf-sw100 wont turn on and i just put new batteries in it

Posted by on

  • goodman66 Jan 07, 2009

    On mine the screen functions, and the back light illuminates. However the on-off, and time change buttons do not work and turn the radio on. The reset button does not change anything.

    Even though it is a post-1997 model and so should not be affected by ribbon failure, I have taken it apart and inspected the ribbon and cannot see any damage, but no improvement on reconstruction.

    Any suggestions?

Chances are the metalic "dome" under each button in question has rotated slightly out of position. This happened with the Sync button on my post-1997 SW100. Sunddenly no Sync function and nothing about Sync on the display. The problem is easily remedied if you're into radios. literally. (A friend fixed mine.) I know several individuals who might be willing to repair your unit. E-mail me for names? paul-diehl[at character]uiowa.edu

WARNING: VERGE OF RANT

Whatever your do, DO NOT SEND YOUR UNIT TO THE SONY REPAIR CENTER IN LAREDO. I sent mine in for the Sync repair and had it returned unrepaired, with "corrosion" given as the reason. I then had an electrical engineer take a look and he correctly diagnosed the problem in 90 seconds. Took him another 30 minutes to complete the repair, which required no new parts or soldering. By the way, he found NO CORROSON WHATSOEVER anywhere in the receiver. And by the way number two, SONY LAREDO returned my receiver with major dmagage to the chassis. After three frustrating months, I was finally able to get LAREDO to replace the part of chassis they'd broken. (They 'd counted on me not taking before and after photos.) Totally incompetent, totally unresponsive, totally dishonest (they said they'd ordered a new circuit board from Japan when they hadn't), just north of outright fraud. AVOID LAREDO AT ALL COSTS.

Try to push the RESET button. There is a little hole on the back side of the receiver.

How do I set the. Time


With the radio off, press and hold the ENTER (time set) Key DOWN. On the right side, there are 4 buttons with arrows on them. The inside ones set the timezone that you are in, the outside two will set the time. I just checked this on my ICF-SW100 and it works for me.

Just need a replacement telescopic aerial for my ICF SW100. Thanks!


There are many types available in the market - now being scare - but you can suit one with the same mount and size.
Some of the earlier models of cordless telephones have antennaes that can suit yourr requirement. Also check for old model radios to swap if you find there are no choices in the market.
If the old one is damaged or broken then you can mend it with mild gas welding.
