I have the same radio.

It was given to me not working
I took it apart.
Was surprised about the contacts not being soldered
After re assembly and with new AA nicads it started.

First it would take clock and then go off
losing clock settings.
then it comes on and starts fro factory CAL menu.
after repeating many times now coming on with all functions
volume not great
sensitivity/signal strength good
Now after recharging batteries stays on and last longer.

It appears that resistance/poor contact with circuit board of battery connections causes l;oss of voltage.

Suggest follow these steps cleaning with solution and may be also re tensioning contact contact areas.

How do I set the. Time


With the radio off, press and hold the ENTER (time set) Key DOWN. On the right side, there are 4 buttons with arrows on them. The inside ones set the timezone that you are in, the outside two will set the time. I just checked this on my ICF-SW100 and it works for me.

Sony ICF-7600 7Band power adapter polarity question


Hello Xiar, Yes the center pin is positive. You have to use any regulated 6volt DC adapter.It may be a good ideea to put a 6v regulator (xx7806) after the adaptor bridge. I have a icf7600 fm/mw/sw 7band receiver too and I`m looking for the service manual or the pcb layout for it. If it by chance you have it mail me at hicom@easynet.ro Regard, Alex

I have a old Sony ICF-SW77 portable shortwave receiver which has lost it's audio. I have replaced the audio o/p IC but still dead. I've reached the limit of my ability and would appreciate...


Look up a data sheet on the audio output IC and get the pin out labels for the pins on it. Then check to see if you have all the right voltages especially at the power supply and ground pins. Good luck.
