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.

This may be caused by a problem with some AC adapters supplied with these radios. (It is a known problem with the Grundig G5, which is supposed to be an identical radio.) I have read that you can request a replacement adapter from Eton.

My eton E5 will not reset when I press the reset button.


Unplug the AC adapter. Remove the batteries. Press & hold down any front panel button for about 10 seconds. Repeat for any 2 more buttons. Then reset with the paper clip. Do not install weak batteries, or try to restart or reset the radio after it shut off because of weak batteries. Weak, dead, or shorted batteries, tend to make the processor inside or the reset function to screw up.

Freq displat out on Eton sat 750 on airband


It should not be very significant. The gap between two neighboring channels in AM/SW can, on some radios, be set to 9 kHz or 10 kHz depending on countries. For FM the separation is about 100 kHz or 0.1 MHz. Set the right frequency then use the Lock feature. It will prevent any shift/drift of frequency ( and any other changes) until you unlock.
