Question about Sony ICF-2010 AM/FM/SW Radio

1 Answer

18 year-old ICF-2010 comes to life, then dies...?

A 2010 given to my (passed) dad in 1990, has been just pased on to me, after no use for last 8 yrs. With all new batts in,it came to life, and was Ok for 3 hrs...tho I notced repetitive dimming of display, and several times, radio just jumpedback to start -up mode, displaying 150hz, on AM. I cleaned all points where 3 vdc would get to main CPU, but could not reach to clean the litle 3 Vdc "spring -finger"that carries this Voltage to "secondary mother board". After playing for 3 hrs. last nite, 2010 has refused to wake up this morning, even to initialising mode (clock at 0.00, flashing, with audio hiss present at L/S). I sspect that 2010 , like my dad, has "passed on", but apart from buying a new M/B, any ideas? Recommend lifting the "secondary m/b, to clean "springfinger"contact area?

Diesel battery

How old is the battery? They dont last forever and cold weather takes the life out of them fast. Below 50 they dont like to charge, below 32 they loose half the power. Below 0 you are down even more and the engine is harder to start when it is that cold.

5 year old sedona has low mileage completely dead. What is expected life of battery?

There is no set life expectancy

My wifes lincoln dies at 4 years every time

She had a new cadillac that never made 1 year

I never get less than 8 or 9 years out of a battery
35 years running

If you do not buy the most expensive battery,the one with
the most cca rating,& it has to be completely sealed on top,
not look sealed & have caps that don't come off,then 4 to
5 years is about it

The refrigerator is 8 years old. the refrigerator

Any refrigerator should last around 14 yrs. The freezer must be frosted up. I would try to defrost it and then start it back up. If you have a defrost problem you will see this again inside of a week. Also make sure the evaporator fan is operating.
