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.

How to install and external antenna to my Sony Dream Machine ICF-CD843V CD Clock Radio...


The dream machine has a ferrite bar antenna built in to it for AM and the power cord functions as an FM antenna.

You really don't want to fiddle with the antenna but can adjust reception by moving the unti away from any large metal objects near it.

You should have the power cord fully extended and not looped up into a bundle.

You also want to distance it from any sources of interference like electric motors or other sources of radio interference.

By "large" I mean anything the size of a microwave oven and larger.

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.

I have spotty reception on a handheld CB and was wondering if there is a testing procedure I can use to check the antenna and radio. I have a multimeter. It's a radio shack handheld with weather bands...


The antenna is your problem not much gain. Height is everything tx and rx. Although it would not compare to a conventional cb size negates performance. Seeing is believing in this case hearing get adapter to connect to standard coax of antenna. (PL259) to BNC Coax Adapter Radio Shack sells them. And dont ask or buy any radios there. They are hardly the radioshack of choice anymore.

  • If you put 4 watts into a four-foot antenna, you will get the same power out of that antenna as if you were putting 2 watts into a 102-inch whip.
  • If you put 4 watts into a 3-foot antenna you will get the same power out as if you were putting about 1.5 watts into a 102-inch whip.
  • If you put 4 watts into a 7.5 inch antenna on a hand held CB, it would put out as much power as a third of a watt into a 102-whip.
  • If you put 4 watts into a 102-inch whip antenna, it is the same output as if you put 11 watts into a 3-foot whip.
  • If you put 4 watts into a 102-inch whip antenna,, it is the same as if you put 14 watts into a 28-inch antenna.
  • If you put 4 watts into a 102-inch whip antenna, it is the same as if you put 54 watts into a 7.5 antenna.

My am station is not coming in


The solution is to toss it because it can't be corrected. I gave up on mine after a month and threw it away. Somebody should have told the genius that designed this radio that a kitchen cannot be rotated to achieve a radio signal. Maybe a way to rotate the internal antenna or a way to connect an external antenna would be helpfull. So much for technology. When you pay a premium for a respected name like Sony, you expect more. I replaced it with a cheap Coby at less than half the price and it works fine

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

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.)
