Question about Sony ICF-M410V AM/FM/Weather/TV Radio

AM Tuner off by 1-3 khz. How to reset?

Recently my M410V seems to have gotten confused. The AM band tuning is off by a few khz and I don't how to fix it. Here's an example. I'm using it to listen to AM 850, but it suddenly can only tune to AM 846 or AM 855. It had previously tuned to AM 850 directly. The channel is VERY strong so I'm not sure what's going on. I've swapped batteries. Any thoughts? Any way to reset this or fine tune it? Thanks. Rich

    I fixed this problem by removing the batteries until the clock display turned off...clearing the time and channel presets. After replacing the batteries, the problem was resolved. Of course I had to reset the time and the presets, but it's fixed!

    I allowed the batteries to completely run down and the computer reset the tuner to 10 khz spacing. I cannot remember how to get back to 9khz am spacing. Can you help? I have tried pressing various combinations of buttons, but so far no luck. michaeljroberts@hotmail.com

Yes,removing the battery and going back to reset can help, also check for moisture, when the battery is removed try to apply some heat with a blower into the receiver housing to clear moisture, then try the set again.

FM frequecy increases/decreases too mugh pr. step


Hi, Your post/description "the frequency increases in steps of .2 Mhz or 200Khz" refers to the increment of frequency spacing between tuning steps and is largely dependent on the radio standards of the country/region the radio is intended to be used. Assuming no hardware fault to the radio, tuning steps may be adjusted by: 1. With the radio switched off, press the Step/Band button for about 2 seconds. This will display the current FM tuning step (200Khz as in your case); 2. With the radio switched off, press the Step/Band button for about 10 seconds. This will display FM and a blinking 50Khz with a single beep sound. By rotating the Tuning Control you can increase or decrease this value. 3. pressing the Step/Band button again will move you to the tuning increments of the AM band again adjustable via the Tuning Control. 4. pressing the Step/Band button again will save the setting and complete the process. Hope this be of some help. Good luck and kind regards.

How to Build: Antenna Tuners


Get you a metal box about 4 inches X 4 inches. Use 2 female Cb antenna inputs from old Cb radios or Radio Shack. Get a old Am radio tuner out of a AM radio(530-1700 khz.) Buy or scrap up some copper wire; big gauge I used. Wound 8-10 turns about " 1 inch round close tight wound. Solder to AM tuner- C1 it shall say on top of Am tuner. Solder Center of Am tuner to Ground(Metal box). For those who know electronics the Tuner is 0-365pf Am band 530-1700khz types. OK, back to assembly. drill a hole for the Two Female Cb Inputs on both sides of metal box. Attach copper wire inside to center taps of Inputs on both sides. Drill a hole for Am tuner and Screw on its lock nut and place a knob on it. Solder all grounds of Female Antenna inputs and Tuner Ground and all Grounds to metal box. Use a washer and Bolt to lock down Grounds to Box. This is how it operates after you use a Jumper to hook to TX of Cb radio. Antenna to other side. Its just a simple L/C network. The Tx travels through copper wire(coil) inside box and gets shunted to ground by the right level of PF Capacitance. The operator tunes it in to get a close to 1.1 to 1.5 SWR ratio. Its simple, but helps with bad Antennas.

How do i reset a sony STR-K740P receiver??? - Sony Str-k740p Radio Receiver


Tuner reset
You can change the AM tuning scale to 9 KHz or 10 KHz. After tuning in any AM station turn off the receiver. Hold down the Preset tuning + and - ve together.
All preset stations will be erased when you change the tuning scale. To reset the scale to 10 kHz (or 9 kHz), repeat the procedure. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

LS. How do I reprogram the frequency bandwidth on FM on a theftlock radio?


You are confusing AM channel spacing with FM tuning. Some radios have a switch for selecting 9 KHz or 10 KHz spacing.

You have buttons to press to change the modulation.
FM covers regular FM band: 76 MHz (Japan) to 108 MHz and the higher frequency ones used for Air and Weather.
AM covers the Long waves (in Europe), the regular AM band (520 kHz-1700 kHz), and the Short wave bands 2MHz 30 MHz
It seems that you can tune the frequency in by direct entry with the number keys.
I do not see the image of the face of the radio but from my experience with many Grundig/Eton you should have two buttons with arrows (left A and Right Arrow) or two buttons with + and Minus (not the volume buttons). If you are in SW, pressing one of the buttons changes the tuning to the adjacent Meter band.

Can only receive forgein channels


See the swection on "Listening to the radio" on page 24 of the manual...


http://www.retrevo.com/support/Onkyo-TX-SR500-Receivers-manual/id/365ag205/t/2/

You can switch the AM band tuning steps between 9 kHz and 10 kHz.

The initial setting is 9 kHz. Please set the AM tuning step frequency to match the AM band tuning step frequency in your area.

USA and Canadian models 10 kHz

Other models 9 kHz

Press MEMORY while holding down TUNER.
Note: All the preset stations are erased when you switch the AM band tuning steps.
