Re: Model si695

This just happened to me. I unscrewed the back (8 screws, each under a rubber pad on the back of the unit) and removed the back cover. I used a jewe;er's Phillips head screwdriver.

You will notice that when you remove the cover, the round watch battery that preserves the memory comes loose. Be sure to remove it so you can reinstall it after you replace the cover.

I didn't really do much except look around.

I pressed the reset button a few times.

I replaced the cover but not the screws. I then replaced the batteries and it worked. I cannot explain why, but it does.

Try this and see if it works for you, too!

I have used my Grundig S350 radio almost daily, for the past 6-7 years. I went on vacation for 10 days. When I returned home, I turned on the power, lights light up, etc., but no matter how...

Radio worked fine......then I was trying to find another channel by turning the tuner knob and all of a sudden it just locked and when I turn the tuner knob it won't change stations. Nothing works but the...

This may help: If you take off the front of the radio (don't forget 2 screws in back!) you will notice a set of black and red wires running from the 2 AA backup batteries to the digital display circuit board. The wires plug into the board with a little white plug. If you unplug this the display will fade to nothing. If you plug it back in it will display an unset digital clock format. This seems to reset the radio, after which it should work.

Radio working just fine But no sound coming from speakers

if the radio still has power the audio amplifier ic in your radio has failed.
take your radio to an electronics repair shop or, replace the radio; this not something you can fix unless you know how to use an oscilloscope.

The time is flashing on the screen and it continues to flash. Can't turn on the unit, change time, etc? It's like it is locked out I need to push a couple of different buttons to turn it on?...

Check the red key protect button on the front top left of the radio. If it is activated there will be a key icon on the screen. Press it once to deactivate it & the key icon should be gone & the rest of the buttons should work.

LCD display has gradually disappeared, now I have nothing. I have had this problem with other sangean products. Is there something that can be repaired? If so where can I send it for repair? Please...

This is a defect in the radio. Reportedly this issue was resolved in later vamps of production, but it still seemed to persist. We discontinued this model due to this exact reason. At this time there is no other solution and the factory can not tell us what the problem was and simply pointed to the LCD.

Will not work on battery

Try removing the battery cover and remove and disconnect the battery.
Reconnect the battery and replace the battery cover.
Now, plug the radio into the wall electrical outlet and wait, the blue light on the radio top should start flash and will flash for about 10 minutes and then stop flashing.
Leave the radio plugged in for about 16 to 24 hours to completely charge the battery. For the first three or four times, completely drain the battery and completely recharge for 16 to 24 hours, this will condition the battery .... mine works like a dream. GR
