Re: It only seems to tune in odd radio stations

How do you adjust the tuner settings to change like 102.20 to 102.25 to 102.3, and so on?

Re: It only seems to tune in odd radio stations

Unless you're in Europe, it's not supposed to. No stations (in America) exist on even numbers.

How to change tuner to pick up all frequence's eg: goes from 95.5 to 95.7 how do i get it to change to 95.6 thanks jason

It will only tune into odd numbered stations because US radio station only broadcast in odd number stations (ex 95.5,95.7,96.3). You can change the area. Area 1 is North America, Area 2 is other areas. Press "Menu"->"Setup"->"Tuner"->"Tuner Area", then select 1 or 2. After setting, press and hold "Menu" for at least 2 seconds. This may give you the frequency you are looking for.

My kenwood 45wx4 is only tuning to the odd number radio station

In generic terms, you need to change the zone or area to Europe (probably from US).
Typically this is done via the menu function and looking for something like ZONE or AREA and then changing the setting to indicate EUROPE.

Very weird Radio Tuning Problem

This is a USA model and by default in the USA all FM stations end in an Odd number. This is completely normal. you can try holding preset 1 and 5 down while pressing the reset button on the unit and it may allow you to switch to a Europe style of tuning.

Cannot tune to local stations

- The 0.2MHz odd steps are standard for US radios. Try resetting the radio (recessed button under the front panel) If this a US radio then this may not help. If you have lost the manual then go here:- Come back and say if this helped or not, I could dig a bit deeper.. -

Pioneer DEH-P690UB FM tuning problem

Pioneer have factory set your DEH-P690UB to 0.2Mhz steps to match the American FM frequency allocations. The fix is not casual as it requires complete disassembly of the head unit and repositioning of two surface mount resistors. This will void any warrantee and unless you're good at microscopic soldering could also ruin the set. I did however void my 2 year warrantee yesterday partly out of frustration and because I have the right SMT tools at work. Now my tuner CPU thinks it's in the Austrailian/Asian model DEH-P7950UB and is also compatible with UK stations. A previously hidden menu is also available where I can set either 0.1 or 0.05Mhz stepping for FM and 9 or 10KHz for AM BSM scanning. The rotary control now steps in 0.05's instead of odd 0.2's on FM Hope this helps.

FM channels

since the 70's when they started, FM radios in cars have only showed like 101.9 and 102.1 in odd number tenths-of-Megahertz only, with a few rare exceptions. There are some high cost receivers that will show odds and evens. Your 102 station is really either one of like 101.9 or 102.1 for your Pioneer.
