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?

I have had a Sony ICF SW7600 for the last 18 years. Now, it only wishes to work on batteries and not on the AC adapter anymore. What can be the problem and how to fix it


I have the exact same problem here in Europe with my perfectly with my Sony shortwave after 18 years. If I fiddle with the ac adaptor in the radio plug, it works for a while. I have replaced and soldered the yellow tip adaptor twice in 18 years and hopefully the problem is with the power plug and not the radio plug.
Any help is appreciated.

My SonyICF-2010 works just fine when using the power adapter. However when I use battery power nothing happens. Please help. I love my old shortwave radio. Thanks.


This problem can be caused by a loose external power connector. This will require disassembly of the case and some soldering. it is possible that the battery terminals are corroded if any batteries have leaked.

I have a Sony icf 2010. No sound, but white noise.


AA batteries need replacing or the contacts are corroded and one more, the PC board is connected to the AA negative post by a wire that touches the pad on the PC board. Sometimes it will lose contact because of oxidation or corrosion, to fix this a wire soldered is best but just repositioning the wire will make the cure. Requires removal of the circuit boards.

Hello, My SONY ICF-2010, SN 82502, has ceased to function...it cannot be powered up either by fresh batteries or the battery eliminators I have...no indication of life on the LCD display... I tried having...


http://www.eham.net/reviews/detail/479  says Over the years I've read that some 2010s were prone to static induced blowing of the front end transistor and that others had trouble with an unstable coherent AM detector. Thankfully my receiver was OK in both respects (I take care when touching the whip antenna in low-humidity environments)   that narrows down which part has likely failed

I have a Sony ICF 2010 (for over 20 years) and when I turn it on, the only reception I get is on the FM frequencies (+ aircraft freqs). Thank you. Alex


Late answer on this.... There is a FET problem with older radios and this could be the problem. Static can "zap" the transistor making the radio deaf on receive in the AM modes.

ICF 2010, no sound suddenly


If the radio does not work with headphone then the external jack for audio may have broken loose from it's soldered points. Simple re solder may make the repair. Beyond that it would have to be diagnosed by a technician.

Sony ICF 2010 Shortwave scan does not scan, it beeps.


It will not scan blank memories and it will not scan on search function till you specify a frequency range.

LCD display invisible on Sony ICF-2010


I found a posting that said this usually is a problem with weak memory batteries or a bad battery contacts. I replaced batteries and cleaned contacts and the problem was solved.
