Question about Audio Players & Recorders
My Sharp DAB/FM radio model no FV-DB1E(S) display is not showing the text data.The back light is illuminating (both levels) but the text cannot be seen clearly (viewing 90 degrees to screen plane), however if I view the screen at a slight angle (approx 10 degrees to screen plane) I can just make out the text as 'clear' digits against the blue background. Could this be sorted or has the display failed. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks John
SOURCE: DAB radio model Sharp FV-DB1E
This is SwannerX and I have solved the problem by locating the DAB radio receiver to a higher position ( some 6ins. higher only ) and orienteering the aerial in an opposite direction.
All 25 stations now tune O.K. and signal quality still reads in the high 90's and signal strength shows 9-10 bars. This is not substantially any more , but it has done the trick!!!
I am still very puzzled why it would not work again in the original position where it has worked well for many years.
Obviously DAB requires a good strong signal as I am living very close to the transmitter at Mounteagle in the Black Isle and the set is upstairs in the house to achieve the highest signal into the set's whip aerial.
Another annoying query I can give you is this :- Every time I do a full AutoTune operation on the DAB receiver , it ALWAYS comes ON tuning BBC Asian 1st. so that station comes up as a 'Favorite' on the Radio's screen. No matter how many other stations I select and listen to for at least 20secs. say, the BBC Asian one STILL is listed as a FAV.
Is this a peculiarity of the Sharp design or a function of the transmission system?
Maybe this BBC Asian is on the first freq. the DAB Radio scans, but I would have thought it would come ON every time with the last station which was selected before it was switched OFF.
What do you think ???
