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.

Advantage of (1980s and 1990s) Sony ICF-SW7600


Some newer radios do not have the quality build that the old ones had. The switch over to cheaper labor countries have lessened the quality and lack of good parts have lead to newer designs but not always better. My old SONY ICF-7600, not the G or GR, has a great receiver on LW and MW but after replacing aging capacitors!

I need to know how to change the Preset tuning on a Sony ICF-M350V AM/FM/TV/Weather radio.


Try tuning to the station you want and then hold down the present button you would like programmed for ten seconds... if not then there's always the manual.

CD player stopped working on Sony ICF-CD831 PSYC Clock Radio/CD P


I've been able to prolong the life on mine by doing this:

Insert the disc, then spin it by hand and quickly close the door and hit play.

It's always worth using a laser cleaner first, as it may just be dirty and stops spinning because it cannot read the disc.
