Re: Sound went out, can't get it back on

This model stereo has problems,to fix it you must unplug it,remove the side panels and you will see a ribbon connector coming from the front panel and going to the side panel circuit board.You must gently unplug this from the side circuit board,use canned air to dust it and the plug itself and replace.You are now good to go!! Hope this works for you,cuz it did for me.

How do I go from "Protect: mode back to FM play on

The word protect will engage when you have output problem and will shut the audio off so no sound is available, however if the sound is working normally with protect visible then there is clearly processor issue, something I have never seen before. But it should be checked by a qualified tech.

RCA rs2600 every thing works but the radio.When the source is switched to AM or FM no sound comes from the speakers.The sound works fine with the CD or tape.

Try to clean the selector mode switch with a contact cleaner like "electra"that safe to all surface plastic or metal.If still the AM and FM not working.You better replace the selector with identical rating parts.

Hope it may helps;

Aiwa XR-EM20 Micro System - radio will only receive MW

The loop antenna is for AM. The FM connection is just like the speaker hook up. Pull down the tab and insert the bare wire.
Hope this helps. If not let me know

For trial purpose you and use an old electrical cord . Strip the insulation off about 1/2 in and insert it into the connections on the back

Old Stero Console

Does FM work? If so, I would expect AM to work also. Old AM circuits are pretty resilient. If you rotate the tuning dial in AM mode, can you hear distinct changes in the sound (noise) coming from the speaker(s)? I'm thinking there's no wire attached to the AM antenna on the back. Without the antenna, you might not get any audio output.
