SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Advantage of (1980s and 1990s) Sony ICF-SW7600

Some newer radios do not have the quality build that the old ones had. The switch over to cheaper labor countries have lessened the quality and lack of good parts have lead to newer designs but not always better. My old SONY ICF-7600, not the G or GR, has a great receiver on LW and MW but after replacing aging capacitors!

SOURCE: 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.

Nothing but static on all bands


There may be interferences from electrical appliances fridges, TV. Move the radio to some other place. For AM rotate the radio to get the best signal. For FM and SW deploy the telescopic antenna. For SW you may use an external antenna. For SW, to tune in on a station you need to know the broadcast time and the frequency.

Eton e5 sw shot


The SW FET preamp transistor, Q1, on the underside of the circuit board blows if a static electric discharge hits the whip antenna. In my case, a cat rubbing against me & the radio on a very dry winter day did it in. The back & circuit board has to be removed to get at it. The micro transistor & the solder connection are very tiny, so hard to replace. The antenna jack should still work, because the preamp is only for the whip antenna's SW reception. An easier solution would be to just run a wire from the antenna jack to the whip antenna, but you would no longer have the whip's preamp benefits, or just use a longwire antenna connected to the jack for SW. Also beware plugging into the jack disables the AM ferrite antenna inside, so you might not want anything plugged into it for AM reception because the internal ferrite seems to perform better than any external antenna.

The antenna on my ICF-SW7600gr broke off. I want to solder on a new wire lead. should i only connect to the top solder point, or to all three where the old antenna plate rested?


There is only one antenna connection. That is the wire or pin in the middle of the coax connector where the old antenna was connected. Hook that to your new antenna, the other connectors are usually at ground potential and won't help a bit. Often a piece of wire the same length as the old antenna will work fine. Stretch it in the vertical position as was the old antenna.

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

My Sony 2010 has a worn out antenna connector. DX reception pops on and off unpredictabley. Two years ago, I tried without success to find one at all the parts houses across the country. Is there a repair...


Usually a simple cure, to do this your self, you need to remove the back of the radio. 7 screws and off it come, the antenna has several points that touch the PC trace pad on the "jack" board, the smallest board. Siply bend the points in a way they will contact the board better. If the problem persists then the FET transistor may be bad or going bad.

Bad reception w/ Panasonic RF-544


I solved the problem, but I did not "fix" the problem. Rather than rig an antenna to the old Panasonic RF-544 radio, I put it upstairs where it has good reception. I put the new Sony ICF-38 downstairs where it brings in the stations I listen to. The advertsizing claim for the Sony ICF-38 is that it has "Good Sound and High Sensitivity." I believe it does have "high sensitivity" because even in the basement it brings in my desired stations. (I am still curious to know if I could have rigged an antenna to the old Panasonic RF-544.)
