I have a 2002 Chevy Silverado with factory stereo. My radio will not pick up a signal unless I am within a few miles of the transmitter. Is there a solution for this before buying a new stereo?

DID THIS ISSUE JUST START HAPPENING? HAVE YOU CHECK THE BACK OF THE RADIO THO MAKE SURE THAT ANTENNA IS PLUGGED IN ALL THE WAY. IF IT IS YOU MIGHT STOP BY CHEVROLET AND SEE IF ITS UNDER WARRANTY. SOUND LIKE THE UPLINK INSIDE THE DECK IS LOSING CONNECTION. NOT SURE IF THIS WILL HELP OR NOT BUT LET ME KNOW IF IT DOES. GOOD LUCK

NO AM STATIONS IN MY 1998 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE, BUT NO PROBLEMS WITH FM. DO I Have to change or repair the radio or the antenna?


A.m. radio stations have a very limited range and honestly modern units include am reception as an after thought. Unless you are within a few miles of the station you probably won't pick it up. That being said if you are close enough and still cannot pick it up then the radio is probably faulty.

Manual for SkyScan atomic clock -model 86742 I need to know how to change the clock to eastern time.


Hello

The SkyScan ATOMIC Clock

With the Skyscan Atomic Clock, you have the most accurate timepiece within the continent. It can receive the time signal transmitted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), which is regulated by 3 atomic clocks and deviates less than 1 second within 3,000 years. The NIST broadcasts the time signal (WWVB, 60kHz) continuously from Fort Collins, Colorado. This signal can be received anywhere in the continental USA that long wave (AM) radio reception is possible with a portable radio. It is expected that the signal can cover a distance of over 2,000 miles from the transmitter. Therefore, your clock will receive the signal within the broadcast range anywhere an AM signal can be received; generally the signal cannot be picked up in massive metal and concrete structures unless near a window. In addition, some environmental effects (see next page) may affect the transmitting distance.

The radio just stopped picking up any signal unless I'm within a few miles of the tower


If your lucky the antenna cable has just come loose at the radio or somewhere along its route to the antenna, more likely that it is an internal problem in the unit

Super Boss FM HI-FI Wireless Headphone SF878 no sound from the tv


Hi - the tv sound will be picked up like an fm radio signal at 83 mhz. To get there, press the reset button the side of the headphones, then press scan. the first signal to be picked up will be the tv signal. This assumes, of course that you have fresh batteries in the transmitter and headphones, and that the volume is turned up on the headphones and the TV. Worked for me. The signal is not stereo, though.

2004 chevy truck factory radio needs to be cleaned on the inside


Read the car manual, in the page were it shows the dashboard fuse panel find the radio fuse pull it out and put it back in with the fuse tool. This resets your radio, it did the trick for me with.
Just make sure if you disable the radio security lock if it enabled before you pull the fuse. It may lock you out, all the information is in the manual.
Good luck and hope this helps.

2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue w/ bose stereo how to hook up Ipod


I woudnt reccomend a direct feed to your system unless it has a input on the stereo such as a aux in with an 1/8" plug. The other reccomended way is from an FM transmitter that plugs in to your Ipod and brodcasts it to your car stereo. They work great and you wouldnt know theye are not hard wired. Walmart, Radio Shack all have these transmitters. If your stereo does have an aux in with an 8th inch plug on it then simply go to radio shack and get a 1/8" male to 1/8th male stereo adapter and plug it in. Wiring the ipod without these two features will destroy both the ipod and car stereo as it creates a loop feedback against each other.
