Panasonic radio - sound cuts out

A couple of days ago, my old and up-to-now trusty Panasonic RC-X210A radio began to act up: the sound goes out and then comes back on in a few seconds or minutes.
What could be the problem, and would it be easy/inexpensive to fix?

The problem might be in the switches or volume knob due to oxidation on the contacts. Try unplugging the unit, then flick the switches (especially the power or AM/FM switch) into all their positions 8 to 10 times applying slight pressure downward on the switch. That should "clean" the contacts off. Do the same on the volume knob by giving it 8 to 10 FULL rotations from minimum to maximum. May have to repeat that a few times a year.

I would have codes checked for MIL. It sounds like it could have a bad Torque Converter Clutch solenoid. If thats the case when they put the code scanner on it it should throw a TCC sol. code. Autozone and O'Reilys will check codes free of charge.

You may need to replace the thermal cutoff. It looks like a resister but acts more like a fuse. It can be found underneath under some braided insulator. If the rating isn't printed on it get 192 degrees celcius. Just crimp on the new one

Began a slow ride on a 55 degree day , was warming it up gently and it began to miss like it was running out of gas and SEVERE oil smoke began coming from exhaust.

sounds like maybe broke a ring or it's stuck. Old school fix for stuck rings is to fill cylinders with Marvels Mystery Oil, leave alone for a couple days, drain and try it.

I'm using my dad's old Panasonic RC-6064 alarm clock. How do I set the time and the alarm?

The Hour/Minute buttons are on the bottom of the radio. Just press the hour or minute buttons to adjust the regular time. Alarm is the same but you hold the alarm button on top.

Radio plays but plug in the rc jacks for the amp and subs and get this grounded out sound plug in different deck works perfect the deck worked fine a week ago

check for loose connections at your speakers and sub. If you have a loose connection, they can ground the other out... look closely for loose strands that may short it out. most of the amps have overload protection and cut out when there's a short/ground out issue..

I had this happen on my sub and it acted like the whole system was cutting out.

I have a 1995 Ford Crown Victoria. Battery light came on a couple days ago. Got a new battery. Battery light comes on then goes off. After driving awhile radio, heater, and lights cut off and on. I notice...

From the sound of things it sounds like a combination of things, check and make sure that your battery clamps are tight. Is the battery holding its charge? If it is then the alternator is not the problem. It sounds like loose wiring shorting out somewhere. i would have it checked by an auto electrician. I hope this helps.

My Sony SDM N80 screen has turned yellow!

Well, I have 2 of these monitors and one began acting in a similar fashion right before the cable went bad. I acquired a replacement from another person with a broken monitor but I believe this site sells them too (but they aren't cheap).
