After an alert is received the light can remain on the radio from 15 minutes up to 6 hours. When the designated time has passed the display message and light will reset to their normal state.

I think it means bad reception? No way to really know, the owners manual is useless.

The Solution to the "Check Reception" Problem


Midland Weather Radio owners around the world, if you are getting a "Check Reception" message on your weather radio, this is nothing to worry about. This just means that you haven't received any warnings or tests for about a week or more. The National Weather Service (NWS) runs Required Weekly Tests (RWTs) or Required Monthly Tests (RMTs) to all Midland Weather Radio owners on Wednesdays (every Wednesday for RWTs and a certain scheduled Wednesday of the month for an RMT (i.e 2nd Wednesday of the Month)). You can weed out the RWT because if this was running every week, you wouldn't be getting the "Check Reception" message. This means you are getting a monthly test on a certain Wednesday of every month. To know when you get this is the tricky part, but once you see the first test, you will know from now on when the NWS gives out these tests. They usually run it on that same Wednesday of every month. To know when they do this, you have to watch your radio every Wednesday around 10:00 a.m., as this is when they administer the tests. Keep watching your radio throughout the day as the NWS can administer the test at anytime. When you see the advisory light light up on your radio, and nothing is being said about a Amber Alert or weather advisory, this means the NWS is administering a test. The type of test will be scrolling on the LCD screen. This will be the type of test you get from now on. The advisory light will stay lit for a few hours, but will eventually turn off. This will mean the test is over. After this, you shouldn't receive another "Check Reception" message for some time. THIS IS NOT A MAJOR PROBLEM and nothing to stress about.

No reception. Says check reception.


I am assuming that you have a Midland WR-100 Weather Radio. The display is saying check reception because you haven't received any kind of warning, Required Weekly Test (RWT), or Required Monthly Test (RMT) in a while. Do not panic. All you have to do is just watch the radio either every Wednesday, the first Wednesday of every month, the last Wednesday of every month or whatever Wednesday the NWS radio station in your county does their test. They usually run them starting at 10:00 a.m.. Keep watching it throughout the day because it could start at anytime. The display screen will read whatever test you are getting. When you watch your radio, look for the advisory light to light up. If nothing is said on the radio, then that means they are running a test. Your light will stay on for a few hours, but it will eventually go off. If this doesn't help, try moving your radio to a different place in the room or another room. If that doesn't help, unplug the DC cable and take out the batteries, then re-install them again. Hope this solution helps.

Check reception is scrolling on screen


I am constantly seeing this problem arriving on this website. This is not a problem. The radio is just letting you know that you haven't received any warnings or tests for a certain amount of time. All you have to do is watch your radio every Wednesday around 10:00 a.m. until you see the advisory light come on. Keep watching the radio throughout the day because the test can begin at anytime. The reason why I am stating "watch your radio every Wednesday around 10:00 a.m." is because this is when the NWS starts their Required Weekly Tests (RWTs) or Required Monthly Tests (RMTs). Depending on what kind of test your county runs will determine what Wednesday you get this test. If it is a monthly test, you will receive this on whatever Wednesday that your county is scheduled to give this test (i.e. the 4th Wednesday of the month). You wouldn't be getting this message if you were getting an RWT. The NWS radio station for my reception area gives the test on the 4th or last Wednesday of every month. The advisory light will stay on for a few hours, but it will eventually go off. Hope this solution helps. Reply back if it doesn't. The real solution to this and key ingredient is patience.

We are under a winter advisory but no lights are on


The National Weather Service (NWS) has certain criteria for issuing warnings, watches and advisories. They do not issue a warning, watch or advisory if the circumstances are "not" severe enough for them to sound the alarm. If you thinking this is a useless piece of junk, its not. This thing really does work and I have proof. Back in September, our area was under a Flash Food Warning and the weather radio sounded more than once. This meant the conditions we were having were severe enough for the NWS to sound the alarm. Your winter advisory was not severe enough for the NWS to sound the alarm. To find out more about their criteria go to http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/nwrwarn.htm. Hope this sheds some light on your situation.

My display keeps shutting off five minutes after starting to watch TV- the sound continues, but the screen is black and the red warning light flashes


Hi,

Please check the sequence in which your warning light flashes.

I will tell you what might be the problem according to the fashing of warning light,
If,

Flashing repeatedly --- Improper voltage supply
Flashing once --- Malfunctioning of fan
Flashing twice ---excessive temperature
Flashing 3 time or more--other problem

When flashing occurs please remove the power cord from receptacle and inform your dealer about the flashing sequence.

Thanx

The low battery warning light flashes even when the batteries are fully charged. We tried several different batteries and it still does it. The camera will stay on for 15 minutes and then it will shut off


Some of The Canon Powershot A530 and A540 cameras are subject to an advisory recall. Seems that a small spring on the battery compartment door can short out the batteries. Suspect this of yours, in that you mention that your batteries aren't lasting long. If your camera is on the list, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check this link for more info:

My flash won't work!!!


Check to make sure your camera's not on the A530 recall advisory list. Maybe the flash capacitor isn't getting enough power due to the shorting described in the advisory?:
