SOURCE: my sony icf 7600 have speaker on sound when i turn

Sony radios of this era had notorious capacitor problems.... also several other brands were affected. These capacitors were underrated and the technology to make them was not at it's best back then. The cure is to replace the capacitors on the board with new electrolytics. About 28 of them need to be replaced but the big problem is to find someone to do this. the original capacitors are surface mount and must be removed and new radial lead caps put in their place, some are rather tough to get at and the new ones have to be placed carefully. My SONY ICF-SW7600 now works as new and maybe even better!
I have done this myself as I have skills working with surface mount capacitors. I offer my services to those who cannot find service for their radios. Please email me for details, I am not into making bucks on this, I just want to see these radios kept working and bringing enjoyment to their owners.

SOURCE: ICF 2010, no sound suddenly

If the radio does not work with headphone then the external jack for audio may have broken loose from it's soldered points. Simple re solder may make the repair. Beyond that it would have to be diagnosed by a technician.

SOURCE: ICF 2010, no sound suddenly

When I use AA batteries, it works fine. However, as soon as I plug in my Radio Shack AC Adaptor it shuts down. I bought another adaptor, no help. I have made sure that the input voltage polarity is correct. So I'm back to using batteries....works great with batteries. I checked across the power input of the radio with a high impedance ohmmeter....no short evident. I guess the only solution I can suggest is to get an "official" Sony AC adaptor instead of the Radio Shack version.

Advantage of (1980s and 1990s) Sony ICF-SW7600


Some newer radios do not have the quality build that the old ones had. The switch over to cheaper labor countries have lessened the quality and lack of good parts have lead to newer designs but not always better. My old SONY ICF-7600, not the G or GR, has a great receiver on LW and MW but after replacing aging capacitors!
