    I was just given a Grundig Yacht Boy 400 to repair, nice looking radio.

    It is not the model we see around here, but there is a battery/AC adapter problem. With this one I think it is the multipole bandswitches.

    More to follow if anyone is interested, kwd...

I have a grundig yacht bot 205, serial number 001143. I was wondering what year and where it was manufactured?


The Grundig Yacht Boy 205 was early 90s and could have been made anywhere. The Grundig Yacht Boy 205a was early to mid 60s and made in Germany.

Probably more than $40 and that is the buy it now price on eBay at this link:
http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=grundig+p2000&_sacat=See-All-Categories
Note that the opening price is only $25. Suggest you get a "new" used radio as a cost effective option. Alternative: buy (now relatively inexpensive) NiMH rechargeable batteries and run your P2000 on them.

Where can I find a replacement for a battery cover for the Grundig YP-P 2000?


Hello,
The batteries you need are just regular AA batteries (also known as 'double A batteries'). In this product you need 3 of them. (AA = 1.5v -> 4.5V in this product) These can be bought in a local supermarket or electronics shop.

My 4 year old YB P 2000 suddenly quit broadcasting AM. I took the radio apart and cleaned everything. Now only some FM stations and no SW reception. Can you help?


Look at the front case and locate reset hole. Insert cocktale stick or similar and listen for slight click. Insert new batteries, ensuring correct polarity and that there has been no leakage from old batteries on terminals. If leakage ie green/ uneven appearance, try to scrape clean with suitable implement when disconnected from mains only.

Hi, I have a vintage GRUNDIG YACHT BOY 210 RADIO; Battery & Mains & sadly although the radio works on VHF it does not work on any other waveband not even static! Can you help? Thanks, Melvin...


HI Melvin. It is hard to diagnose issues like that over the net. But my first suspicion would be the bandswitch, if so equipped. Contacts can get dirty. I just had a look at your radio's photo, and it looks to be the age of a set that would have a bandswitch.

If you are experienced at romoving the rear of the cabinet, you may be able to see the band switch. It is full of contacts. You can use a contact cleaner, (make SURE it is safe to use on plastics) spray a little on the wafer switch, the work it back and forth.

[img]http://antiqueradios.com/gallery/d/109664-1/philco+band+1.JPG[/img] This is what a typical bandswitch looks like.

This is the most common reason a set will not pick up on some bands. Pushbutton operated radios is the next common cause of no reception on certain bands. I strongly doubt it would be from an open coil or other major issue.

Good luck an hope you get the set working.

You ran out of batteries, or if using AC, the adapter is wrong.

I need to know how to set the radio presets for the Grundig.


If you go to this link; http://www.amazon.com/Grundig-G2000A-AM-Shortwave-Radio/dp/B00000JD4T/ref=pd_bbs_sr_3/104-1966292-9407907?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1175876962&sr=1-3 This is the same model, and under "product details" you can download the manual. Page 21 of the manual (page 10 of the pdf file) should tell you what you need to know. Hope this helps :)
