Question about Grundig YB 400PE AM/FM/SW Radio

Does not run on batteries but runs on AC adapter

When I turn it on the unit's display indicates exhausted cells (yes I've tried fresh batteries :) but on AC-adapter it runs ok.

Previously I've run it on NiMh-cells (1,2V) without problems and now it doesn't even run on higher voltage (1,5V) normal batteries.

U don't plug an ac adapter into a dc input. U need a 5-6 volt DC adapter - make sure you observe correct polarity.

I want to buy a battery charger. Where do I purchase?


Hello
The external power adapter for your device is for [6VDC - 1 Ampere]. You can use any adapter with this capacity to charge the battery inside the your Philips Da1000. Brand is not matter, but the voltage and current is. Just check the DC socket polarity. It is the main thing that ahs to be checked. Some sets will have outer (+ve), and some others have (Outer (--ve). This will be marked at the DC in terminal of your radio. It is best to be the set in hand, when you go to buy a new one. This adapter can be bought from most of the electronic spare parts selling shops at your town. Philips has designated as [6V direct current, positive pole to current pin] as pin confuguration for the AC adapter. If so outer ring connection will be (--ve). Anyway, make sure about it before buying a new one. OK.

I purchased the S350 for work. The company I work for just installed new fluorescent lights in the room that the radio plays. the problem is that while on the ac adapter. the radio pick up interference. ...


The speakers are to large for the Grundig to handle and should be removed. The fluorescent lights have a built in transformer that can cause problems when an AC adapter is used in a radio, but this is the case if one or more fixures have a flaw generating line noise which the radio would pick up. There are three suggestions you can try, relocate the radio in an attempt to correct the problem, purchase a noise filter from Radio Shack, or try and isolate the fixture that is the issue.

Resetting an eton fr-360 weather radio. it will not come on even with new batteries. how do i reset it.


I had the same problem so I sent an email to Eton's customer service, this was their response and it worked for me:
Please use the following procedure to reset it. Please remove your AAA batteries and unplug the rechargeable battery. Let the radio sit for 30 to 45 minutes, then put them back in. To play it from the AAAs press and release BATT first, then POWER. To play if from the rechargeable, first press DYN/SOL, then turn the crank for 90 seconds, then press and release POWER.

To charge the unit with an AC adapter, plug in the AC adapter, press the DYN/SOL button and make sure that it reads SOL/DYN in the lower right corner of the display. Let it charge for about 8 hours. Make sure that it still says SOL/DYN and press the POWER button. It should play for about 5 to 6 hours, depending on the volume.

LCD display has gradually disappeared, now I have nothing. I have had this problem with other sangean products. Is there something that can be repaired? If so where can I send it for repair? Please...


This is a defect in the radio. Reportedly this issue was resolved in later vamps of production, but it still seemed to persist. We discontinued this model due to this exact reason. At this time there is no other solution and the factory can not tell us what the problem was and simply pointed to the LCD.

Bad adapter?


Dear Kerman,

Sounds like AC hum on your adapter; please find out the adpter voltage and polarity, on the adapter tips, maybe you user manual might have the information. Also the current rating of your adapter.

Try a replacement of the same rating and tip polarity.

That might solve the problem.
