Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Serial # B413035 model # ICF-C303 I tried unplugging for 24 hrs and letting the capacitor drain completely, but it will not hold the station presets and the alarm settings are squirlly. lso tried opening it up to blow any dust out - their wasn't any.... could I purchase a new board and install it myself or is this particular radio still available for purchase? Thanx

tune to station you want preset; hold down Enter/Time button while you press the number you want the station to be on the keypad.

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.

Sony radios of this era had notorious capacitor problems.... also several other brands were affected. These capacitors were underrated and the technology to make them was not at it's best back then. The cure is to replace the capacitors on the board with new electrolytics. About 28 of them need to be replaced but the big problem is to find someone to do this. the original capacitors are surface mount and must be removed and new radial lead caps put in their place, some are rather tough to get at and the new ones have to be placed carefully. My SONY ICF-SW7600 now works as new and maybe even better!
I have done this myself as I have skills working with surface mount capacitors. I offer my services to those who cannot find service for their radios. Please email me for details, I am not into making bucks on this, I just want to see these radios kept working and bringing enjoyment to their owners.
