I replaced the batteries in my S350 and it started smoking.

I smelled a strange odor and when I took the batterie out they had melted the battery connectors. It no longer works. I has been working perfectly for 4 years.

There are any number of reasons for this to occur, but I would call Eton customer service in California. They're very helpfull and the number is located on the manual that came with the radio. If you no longer have that, just go to their web site.

Unfortunately, the limit on the warranty has run out, so their is probably nothing that can be done outside of buying a new one. ACT Electronics can fix Grundig radios, but the price will probably exceed the cost of this model.

The Grundig S350 (DL) runs on one of three power sources: electrical outlet, DD batteries, and AA batteries. There is a switch in the battery compartment that permits to change battery type. I do not know how different the S350 and the S350 DL are, but you should try to find out if it works with any of the two battery types before having it serviced. Clean all contacts of any acid corrosion. Check the manual to see if you have to specify the battery type in the setup too.

My Grundig S350 won't turn on. I have replaced the batteries and hit the reset button and still nothing. Please help.


Its Deluxe Version the S350 DL can use two types of batteries: D-size or AA. Inside the battery compartment there is a switch to select the size in use. If you use the AA sie batteries, they will not hold in their locations unless you lower a flap and secure them.
Have you tried to power the radio with the adaptor?

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 sound...no matter how...


Hi
Its microcomputer chip may have hanged. Just make a reset ans see whether it helps you. It must help you, i"m sure. To reset it;

S350 incorporates with micro computer chip (the component that

controls how the radio operates). If the radio has been subjected to

abnormal environmental conditions, the micro computer chip may
hang up and the following symptoms may appear

The display shows nothing and the radio cannot be turned on by
pressing POWER & SLEEP button.

The display shows random characters or does not work properly

although the radio can receive stations normally.

In these cases, you might need to reset the radio. To reset the

S350, unplug the external adaptor (if one is being used) and

remove the batteries from the battery compartment. Insert a

pointed object, such as straightened paper clip, into the RESET hole

on the right, front side of the radio and gently press and release the

button inside the hole. Then plug in the AC adaptor or reinstall the
batteries
OK.

Dropped my portable grundig s350. Stopped working


Anything could happen in a fall, no telling what needs attention, could be a bad battery connection a cracked circuit board. If it is under warranty send it in if not a good technician is needed.

Odd odor


Yes..... that odor you smell was a component burning out on the circuit board. if you were lucking it only burned out one thing. fixable....if you have the time. actually anything is fixable it usually boils down to the cost of fixing it vs replacing the item.
