The output voltage is 14v ac. It is printed on the circuit board that the wires go to

    The transformer may also be damaged due to the "dirty" power from a job site generator. I was mistaken, the voltage rating on the circuit board is 15v ac.

When I turn the radio on, it has a good signal strength, as shown by the icon. After about 10 seconds, the strength icon disappears and so does any reception.


most likely there's a defective component (like leaky capacitor). it could be 'toast ' if you can't replace said component

I Lost FM on my Tivoli Model One. While FM was playing I touched the radio and gave it a static shock (very dry climate) and lost the FM. AM and Aux are fine.


It will need to go to a service centre for repair. Most probably the static electric jolt will have taken out either the FM RF amplifier of the FM mixer, meaning it needs component level repairs :o(

Job site radio work turn on seems there is no power going to radio. When plug in there is no sign of power in the radio. I have replaced the cord end and that didn't help.Any ideas?


probably the transformer, if it works on the battery but not plugged in thats the most likely cause. I have the same problem and will repost if the transformer replacement works. Cheers

Radio does not work when it is plugged in,but does work battery


Mine has a bad transformer, but I am having a hard time finding a replacement. This is due to the fluctuating voltage of the job site generator.

Questions:
1. Does the AC cord look ok? Not damaged?
2. Have you tried another AC outlet?
3. Does the AC cord unplug from the radio?

When you operate the radio from the AC power cord, the radio uses an internal power supply consisting of a step-down transformer, rectifier, and filter that converts the AC to DC to operate the radio.

When you run the radio off of batteries, it powers the radio directly. In some radios, when you plug the AC cord into the radio, it activates a switch that disconnects the battery voltage to the radio so that the batteries wont be damaged from the voltage created by the internal supply.

The radio can be powered by either the batteries or the internal supply. You don't want either supply affecting the other, so that is why a switch is sometimes used.

Since the radio works fine off of batteries, that would indicate that there is a problem with the internal power supply. This could be a blown fuse, bad transformer or bad rectifier diode.

Good Luck,

WX cc Sangean radio cuts out


The ATS-818 needs a transformer. The transformer converts AC power to the DC used by the radio, so no. You need the transformer.

The transformer needs to be replaced. 120VAC to 15VAC. Take a look on amazon for it, here: Amazon com 15VAC transformers. Wish you best of luck.
