Don't you have an automatic tuning system or ATS? By pressing a band switch for a while the ATS starts looking for stations and stores the ones that have a good enough signal. Even if a station broadcasts but the location of the radio is not adequate for a good signal to be received, the station won't register and it will appear to you that the tuner is skipping.
Your TV band radio won't work anymore now that the US has switched to digital broadcasting. The frequencies now in use aren't the same now, so the radio can't receive them. Plus, the radio doesn't have the circuitry to decode the digital sound even if it could pick up the broadcasts.
Sad to say, you have a radio that now picks up only AM/FM/weather and static. Also, as far as I know, nobody is yet marketing a radio for TV sound with digital capability. All you can do during a power outage is use a new TV with battery capability and digital tuning.
Seems you posted twice.
A copy of my reply to your other post....
Assuming no hardware fault to the radio, tuning steps may be adjusted by:
1. With the radio switched off, press the Step/Band button for about 2 seconds. This will display the current FM tuning step (200Khz as in your case);
2. With the radio switched off, press the Step/Band button for about 10 seconds. This will display FM and a blinking 50Khz with a single beep sound. By rotating the Tuning Control you can increase or decrease this value.
3. pressing the Step/Band button again will move you to the tuning increments of the AM band again adjustable via the Tuning Control.
4. pressing the Step/Band button again will save the setting and complete the process.
Hope this be of some help.
Good luck and kind regards.
The radio is analog with a digital display. Mine displays off all the time, you can try turning the other switches on it just slightly. Just move them a tiny amount. This seems to correct my problems. Heat is also another factor with these things, they drift all over the place.
