Question about Grundig S350 AM/FM/SW Radio

1 Answer

No sound after dropping S350.

This was a present several years of my favorite radios, and I have many. A few months ago, I knocked into the table on which the radio sat. It fell maybe 2 feet, straight down on its face. Well, there was absolutely NO visible damage to the radio. The knobs still turn easily, not even a scratch. I think that the way it fell, the impact was spread evenly among the knobs. Now here's the good news. EVERYTHING WORKS! It turns on, the LCD display works as always, I can tune stations etc. However, there is TOTAL silence from the speaker. Not even static. Nothing comes from the earphone jack either. Yet, the LCD shows full signal strength. I'm leary of getting it repaired since that would could as much as, or more than, the radio is worth. I've thought of selling it on ebay for parts...hell even the knobs could be valuble to someone. But before I do that I thought I'd try this site first. Maybe someone knows of a book on repairing radios? Might be kinda fun opening it up and trying. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Probably one of two things:

The dropped caused the speaker leads from the PCB to Speaker to disengage (check the earphone jack, too... 'cause it is in the circuit)


The bounce cause the Audio amplifier IC to become desoldered from the PCB.

Hi, I got my sister a Eton solarlink FR360 for a present a few months ago and now the sound/volume doesn't work? Can this be fixed? I can't find the receipts otherwise I would take it back.

you should probably go to the store were you bought it and see what is the matter and I don't know what this is but see what they can do and if they cant fix it then you might either have to go without sound or get another one

My Grundig s350 radio powers off as if it is on some sort of timer. I cannot figure out why or how to stop it.

The ON button is also a SLEEP timer. The timer can be set to 90 minutes, 75, and son on. The shortest time period is about 1 minute. Press the ON/SLEEP button several times. After each press read the number displayed. As you push the button again you will cycle through all available timer settings. Choose one that its long enough for you.
However if you press the ON/Sleep button for a few seconds the radio will play continusously until you turn it off.
Just play with the RED button a few times to get an idea how long to press to make the radio play continuously.

I have used my Grundig S350 radio almost daily, for the past 6-7 years. I went on vacation for 10 days. When I returned home, I turned on the power, lights light up, etc., but no matter how...

Its microcomputer chip may have hanged. Just make a reset ans see whether it helps you. It must help you, i"m sure. To reset it;

S350 incorporates with micro computer chip (the component that

controls how the radio operates). If the radio has been subjected to

abnormal environmental conditions, the micro computer chip may
hang up and the following symptoms may appear

The display shows nothing and the radio cannot be turned on by
pressing POWER & SLEEP button.

The display shows random characters or does not work properly

although the radio can receive stations normally.

In these cases, you might need to reset the radio. To reset the

S350, unplug the external adaptor (if one is being used) and

remove the batteries from the battery compartment. Insert a

pointed object, such as straightened paper clip, into the RESET hole

on the right, front side of the radio and gently press and release the

button inside the hole. Then plug in the AC adaptor or reinstall the

Grundig S350 not powering on

Is there any easy self-fix that can be done to get the radio working again?

Nope. I'll bet you have some corrosion inside the switch itself.
Unless you can disassemble that you will have to send it in. If the switch had metal contacts, you could try just a tiny shot of cleaner in the switch, then work it off and on.

If you are able to get to the switchs' contacts, you can short those and see if the radio powers up. Just make sure that you have the right connections.

Bad idea bout wpraying it down with cleaner. If that suff gets in the coild or other parts like the tiny tuning capacitor, it can melt together inside, or at least cause it to be off frequency.
Good luck,

Kenmore front loading HE3 makes knocking sounds during spin cycle

Ours started knocking several months ago and then progressed to a high pitched sound when in the spin cycle. I manually turned the drum and heard and felt a bearing roughness. I lifted the drum assembly and felt a fair amount of play, which I think the initial knocking noise came from. On the sears web site a new rear drum mount cost 293.00. Today we went and bought a LG model wm2455hw at Home depot, on sale until 2/20/08. I couldn't see paying to repair a machine that only lasted four years.

Failure of radio to turn on

It sounds like a component on the circuit board is heating up. Open the radio up and check if anything is overheating, if so replace the defective part.
