Question about Tivoli Henry Kloss Model Two FM/AM Radio

Tivoli model two - low/no sound in base unit

Tivoli model two - remote speaker works fine; base unit speaker makes sound but is very very faint;

I tried the earphone jack on the base unit and found that both channels have sound, but then also learned that the BALANCE control turns but has no effect on left and right on the headphones.

Note that the balance control does work to adjust sound from hardwired remote Tivoli speaker.

This has me stumped. How do I open this ****** up and take a look inside? Thanks!

I have exactly the same problem but found two work arounds, either one that I am completely satisfied. 1. unplug and replug the AC.
2. I have a subwoofer, when I plug the subwoofer cable half way in, the sounds of the base speak goes back to normal (but not all the way in)

How do you remove the speaker balance knob on a tivoli model dab radio situated on the rear panel.


Usually they pull right off. Unless you see a hole in the side with a hex key screw, it will pull off. Just pull gently and steadily and it should merely pop off.

I Lost FM on my Tivoli Model One. While FM was playing I touched the radio and gave it a static shock (very dry climate) and lost the FM. AM and Aux are fine.


It will need to go to a service centre for repair. Most probably the static electric jolt will have taken out either the FM RF amplifier of the FM mixer, meaning it needs component level repairs :o(

My Tivoli radio overheated and doesnt work anymore


This is not good, the voltage in Europe is 220 and normally the damage it creates to a 110 unit is catatrophic, the only suggestion I can make is allow a technician to check it to see if it can be restored to operational mode.

The sound disappears gradually after turning the radio on. When turning off and on again the sound is ok at first but after a few seconds it fades out. Same problem with mp3 player connected, i guess...


I have the same problem. Tivoli just had these made cheaply in China and sell them for a bunch here. POS. Their "outstanding" warranty is just a piece of paper.....100 bucks for fix a 150 dollar radio, don't think so.

Tivoli model Satellite will not turn on. Had intermittant power issues. Moved the radio and it will no longer power on


The power control problem is easy to fix.

It can as simple as a fuse (I'm sure you check it already) or a switch that is piggy back on the volume control.

Radio Shack has a similar one HERE

Disconnect the AC outlet and open the main Tivoli unit.

Look at the back side of the volume switch and you will see a power switch piggy back onto the volume control.

You can bypass it or get the correct value Potentiometer + SPST switch.

Use an ohm meter to meter the both end of the potentiometer and if it's 10,000 ohm or 10k then just go to Radio Shack and ask for
10K-Ohm Audio Control Potentiometer with SPST Switch Model: 271-215 | Catalog #: 271-215

It's a direct replacement.

If the ohm read is other then 10K then you will need to order it for an electronic supply house.


Tivoli makes great radio.....if you want to sell it I want the first dip.

My Tivoli Model One makes a loud screech/buzz noise


I had the same problem and was able to repair it quite easily. Only thing needed is some basic soldering skills.

Problem description:

  • Suddenly a quite loud and disturbing (scratch/screech/buzz) noise appears.
  • Sometimes the noise is gone but it reappears sooner or later.
  • Changing volume or radio band / input (am, fm, aux) does not affect the noise (even on volume turned down all the way).
  • The signal coming out of the Headphones / Rec Out plug is not affected.

Cause:

  • Cold solder joints

Solution:

  • Unplug from mains
  • Remove back panel (the two black screws next to the plugs in the center). The back panel sticks quite firmly, so it might help to remove the front panel first (the 4 screws in the corners) and carefully press out the back panel from the inside. (The other two (silver) screws are used to attach the transformer to the back panel) and need not to be loosened.)
  • On the circuit board at the back panel locate the plug that goes to the speaker (is says "J2"). Check the solder joints. In my case, looking closely, I could see that they're not good anymore.
  • Renew the joints by heating them up and applying some fresh soldering tin. I also renewd the joint from the wire bridge next to the plug. Just check the other solder joints on the board.

In my case afterwards the problem was gone and the device is working properly again.
