Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

Bought a Brookstone MWCDv1.0 on Craigslist and I think I was ripped off. It was supposed to be fully tested and working perfectly. Anyway, the receiver does not seem to be working, I get only two (very remote) AM stations and no FM stations...only static. The antenna is a typical black wire and seems to be intact. I tried wrapping it around an old tv antenna and it did not help. Any advice would be appreciated. If I cannot get this working by Christmas...I'm screwed. The unit is about 10 years old. Thanks.

The front end is bad on this reicever. Your going to need special equipment to trouble shoot this problem, as Its all RF. It is most likly not worth repairing as a shop will most likly charge you more then its worth

..just read about your reception/interference problems and, having lived through similar situations for some time — particularly with different weather conditions. The following solution has settled it all : wrap power cable around storage brackets at back of radio with a short length then wound around support posts (between radio and cupboard from which radio hangs), then run short length to power supply outlet. In my case this result comes after much experimentation with the length of unwapped power cord (including fully unwrapped and stretched out) and different patterns of winding around the support posts. This final result takes care of everything (better sound, no interference/loss-of-reception when moving around in the room or in front of the radio, weather has no effect, stations received that could not be before due to overlap by nearby, more powerful ones). I have only about 2 1/2 feet of cable running from the brackets at back of radio, then wound once around center support and half around right support to then go to wall and down to receptacle close by (I tried all kinds of combinations of unwrapped lengths and winding patterns around 1 to 3 posts)...individual cases may be different. so GOOD LUCK, 'cause the radio is great...!

The old Brookstone went bankrupt. The new Brookstone has nothing to do with the old Brookstone products. Best to replace your unit.

I bought a cloud force RC helicopter and its battery runs out in 5 minutes, after a full charge. The batteries are brand new. Do you think theres something wrong with it?


The batteries have degraded. Even if you bought the helo brand new, it might have been sitting on the shelf for quite some time since it was manufacturers and Ni-Cad and Li-Po batteries have limited shelf life.

You can always replace the batteries. The stock batteries in the Brookstone Cloud Force uControl RC heli are 3.7V 150mAh, but I I suggest you seach for and buy Syma S107 / S107G Upgrade 3.7V Lithium Polymer 240mAh batteries. I picked one up for my Cloud Force and because it's slightly bigger than stock, you'll need to tape it under the body between the skids, but some people have also managed fit it between the frame where the stock battery rests. Some generic replacement instructions: http://www.micro-helicopters.net/syma-s107-battery-replacement. The 240mAh battery works perfectly and runs the chopper longer than the stock one did brand new. Aside from a year's heavy use reducing this thing's usable run-time to 30 seconds or so, this has been a great micro-heli.

Just bought the brookstone wireless tv headphones. I have a Westinghouse 40 inch lcd tv. I plugged in the rca red/white into the audio out and I don't get any sound into the headphones?


I had the same problem with Brookstone wireless headset the only solution I found was plug in the red and white connectors to your cable box it works perfectly that way. Just make sure the red cable connector from the transmitter is connected to right red input connector on the box. I have a Comcast cable box. Now I need a solution for them on my PS3?

Battery test shows that it is fully charged, but


There is a possibility that the battery has a damaged or faulty surge protector. This will make the battery work at random times. This is not a fixable issue outside of replacing the battery again.

Return the battery and get them to send you another if possible.

Only if you choose to think so. I have seen old equipment in better shape that much younger vintage stuff! It depends on how much use it has had and if it has been run to the max with heavy loads to the point of making the machine beat itself up prematurely.
