FM radio does not work on receiver

The FM radio does not work. AM radio works fine and all the other components connected to the receiver work. I have disconnected and reconnected the fm antenna and I reset the entire unit, with no success.

Unfortunatly it sounds like the FM tuner pack is faulty and only replacement can cure it.

SOURCE: FM RADIO DONT WORK..MODERATE AM

if you installed an aftermarket antenna you may have to splice two wires to make full connection, email customersupport@discountautoantennas.com and explain and they may be able to email you instructions for a solution you may not have it grounded properly.

SOURCE: Sony CDX-GT360S NO AM OR SHORTWAVE RECEIVE

IT IS NOT A PROBLEM AT ALL, MOST CARS NOWADAYS DON'T HAVE SHORTWAVE ANTENNAS, THEY OFTEN COME WITH ANTENNAS SUITABLE FOR FM STATIONS SO WHEN SW DXers LIKE US HAVE CD PLAYERS IN OUR CARS WE SHOULD ALWAYS HAVE IN MIND THAT ANTENNAS MUST BE CHANGED, HERE IS THE SOLUTION.. GO TO A RADIO SHACK OR EBAY AND GET ONE OF THOSE HIGH SW ANTENNAS AND YOU ARE READY TO GO.
HOPE IT HELPS

SOURCE: FM Reception with Jensen MSR3007

I have the exact same problem with the exact same stereo. I started by removing the in-line AM/FM/VHF Separator and connecting the antenna directly to the stereo. The static/popping/fade-out continued. Today I swapped to a new antenna, but it did not help. I swapped back to the original antenna and for a brief while, I had good reception. The I went to coil the excess antenna cable and the static/popping/fade-out resumed. I have narrowed it down to either the antenna connector coming out of the back of the stereo or an internal circuit. Either way, it does not look like a do-it-yourself fix.

I cannot play music through fm modulator by usb but it works i phone/


Select free channel or frequency on your radio and align it with the one on fm modulator depending on the type of radio used. Make sure the modulator has the power on. Does the cigarette lighter work, if not check it. make sure the radio receiver/ transmitter component or antenna connected as this need frequency to produce sound like a radio.

You should check all the connections especially the radio for dust, rust, or any dirt. If that doesn't work then you need some kind of radio adapter to improve you signal.

FM Tuner not receiving - Yamaha R7 receiver


Take the cover off and look at the cable that connects the tuner to the main board. Make sure it is connected straight and tight. Make sure all screws in the back are tight, just in case it is a grounding issue. Iff all checks out and you still have issues, replace your tuner.

I can't get the AM radio to find a signal. All other components work fine.


Hello
If you get FM radio stations, and only AM reception is immpossible, check whether AM loop antenna has connected to the respective poles at the back side. If it is connected, and still you do not get the Amplitude Modulation [AM] signals, check the input settings of the device is correct to recive AM. There will be a slelection option, for AM & FM. OK.

Usually when you lose only AM it is an antenna issue. Check for a loose antenna plug on the back of the radio or connection to the antenna.

Cannot get FM radio to come through. CD plays fine but cannot get any radio station to come through. Just static


You must open your receiver and go to the tuner.Clean the tuner with the used of an old tooth brush with an alcohol and do resoldering works in the tuner section,maybe solder joints is cracked or loose or cold.It is a loose connection or cold solder and cleaning problem this is the main caused of no sound of FM radio. Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. It is possible that the cold solder is still minimally connected (hanging by a thread). When the receiver turns on heat would be generated which would be sufficient to further loosen up the solder joint to the point it no longer provides electrical contact. Jarring the unit creates movement inside enough to re establish the contact, sometime good enough sometimes not enough.

Again, since the unit still operates (sometimes) then it is highly probable that there are no defective components. As you have surmised, it is possibly a loose connection, solder joints are "connections" except that molten soldering lead is used to attach/connect the component to the board, "loose connection" in this sense is equal to "cold solder".

Again on the assumption of no defective parts, then seeking a more experienced buddy for the soldering might be to your advantage. This is of course in addition to the possible electrical hazards when repairing....

Good luck:

Regards,
