Question about Denon AVR-587

1 Answer

Radio stations have shushing sound

I have a new system, which has about 6 radio stations programmed for listening. All are easy to hear on cheap table-top radios. On my surround-sound Denon system, most of them have a shushing sound, or overall poor reception, so that they are unbearable to listen to. TV sound is fine. The installer came once and changed the antenna from a small unit above the entertainment unit to a large, paddle-like antenna (6 foot long). This did not solve the problem and, since that visit the installer does not respond to my calls, nor to an email message I wrote asking for further help. I would like advice on what might be done by me and/or what I would do to get a useable system by getting professional help.

Cheap table top radio is mono. Your Denon is not getting a good signal so you are hearing noise. You need a better antenna (roof type) or the antenna needs to be moved and aimed in another direction. Try moving it while the station is tuned. You can also switch the Denon to mono and it will reduce the noise at the loss of fidelity.

On AM radio, there is often a sound, like a hammer hitting a 55 gal. drum interrupting the program. Does not do it on portable radio carried in the car.


all stations AM?

is the engine running?

for get the portable, some have vastly better a/m radios than any car has. in fact many cars radios a/m OR of horrid quality.

i can tell you why but its boring. (AGC, read up on that)

did you try the radio in car, parked say across town.?

did you try all stations

are you like 1 block away from an AM radio station, overloading yours.

AM radios are basically noise making radios., that is why FM was invented to stop that noise, (i cant hear it so.........?????)

are you listening to far away stations, this is normal

in fact you might hear 2 stations on same channel (freq)

and they will beat against each other.

on case of is in S.Calif where your station is clobbered by high power mexican stations 50,000 watts. strong.

and worse a night, does it get better in the day?



here is my advice, many AM stations have a rebroadcast on FM.

go there and listen. (use SAT radio?)

AM radio is subject to vast sources of noise.

ignition noise., high voltage power transmission line noise.

machinery noises, (electric)

or even illegal transmitters in your hood.



many new cars the AM radio is junk, they use this very cheap

chip inside that does this very poorly, but allows them to say

it has AM. ( for $1 cost)

the FM side is 10x better, or more. move up to FM like we all did back in 1967. (i used to build and sell converters back then)





answering for , all other modes work perfect, but AM radio..

How to program the radio in a 96Lincoln continental after battery was disconnected


Hi,

Here is the link to the owners manual which you can download if you wish:

http://owner.ford.com/servlet/ContentServer?pagename=Owner/Page/OwnerGuidePage&year=1996&make=Lincoln&model=Continental

Here/below are the specific instructions on the radio programming (pg. 159 of above link).


Good luck & please flag if "HELPFUL". Thanks!

(from section) Luxury Audio System


Selecting the AM or FM frequency band

Push the "AM" or "FM1/FM2" button to select the desired frequency band. Pushing the "FM1/FM2" button more than once will alternate between FM1 and FM2. These functions are used with the station memory buttons described under How to tune radio stations.

HOW to tune radio stations

There are four ways for you to tune in a particular station. You can use the "TUNE", "SEEK", 'SCAN"or memory buttons.

• Using the "TUNE" function:
You can change the frequency up or down one increment at a time by Pressing and releasing either the left (< arrow/up) or - right (> arrow/down) side of the "TUNE" or "TUNE DISCS" button. To change frequencies quickly, press and hold down either the right or left side of the button.

Manual tuning adjusts your radio to any allowable broadcast frequency, whether or not a station is present on that frequency. (See All About Radio Frequencies in this section.)

• Using the "SEEK" function
: Press the right *) side of the "SEEK" button to select the next listenable station up the frequency band. Press the left (.4) side of the button to select the next listenable station down the frequency band. By holding the button down, listenable stations can be passed over to reach the desired station. Pressing the "SCAN" button will begin the scan mode up the frequency band, stopping on each listenable station for approximately five seconds. To stop the scan mode on the presently sampled station, press the "SCAN" button again.

Setting the station MEMORY PRESET buttons
: Your radio is equipped with 6 station memory buttons. These buttons can be used to select up to 6 preset AM stations and 12 FM stations (6 in FMI and 6 in FM2)

1. Select a band, then select a frequency.

2. Press one of the memory buttons and hold until the sound returns and the lamp above the memory button lights up. That
memory button is now set.

3. Follow the above steps for each memory preset button.

NOTE:
Custom memory presets can be recalled using the keyless entry system. See Memory Profile System in the Features chapter.

Using the Automatic Memory Store feature ("AUTOSET")
: If the memory buttons have been set, either by using the Auto Memory Load feature or if you have set them manually, the system is prepared tolet you use a convenient feature called Automatic Memory Store.

With Auto Memory Store, you can continually set strong stations into your memory buttons without losing your originally set stations. Your radio will automatically set your memory buttons to the strong local stations.

Activate Auto Memory Store by pushing the "AUTOSET" button once. Your radio will set the first six strong stations of the band you are in (AM, FMI or FM2) into the memory buttons. The display will flash "AUTO" and display the autoset icon "A" while the stations are being set in the memory buttons.

NOTE: If there are less than six strong stations in the frequency band, the remaining unfilled buttons will store the last strong station detected on the band. After all stations have been filled, the radio will begin playing the station stored on memory button 1.

To deactivate the Auto Memory Store mode and return to the manually-set memory button stations, simply push the "AUTOSET" button. Display will show "AUTO" then "OFF". The next time Auto Memory Store is activated on that band, the radio will store the next set of six strong stations.

How can we preset radio stations on RD-N1


I'm not familiar with this particular stereo but typically radio presets are programmed by manually seeking out your favorite channel. Once you' be tuned in, press and hold the button (usually numbered 1-5 or 1-6 for preset programming) hold the button until you hear a beep or the display flashes briefly. If this is a newer touch screen style radio, these instructions may be antiquated and most likely insulting :)

How do I preset different radio stations?


Hello
There are 6 preset position available for each radio band.
For programming, Radio must be ON. Tune to a station. Press MEMO/DEMO. Press any button 1 to 6. The tuned station will be memorised on the number you select by button press. Repeat using a new station and preset number. There is no atu preset option available with this device. You have to store stations you want according to your preference. Only 6 station positions for each band [total 12 positions] together with AM and FM bands.
To recall the stored stations, press the desired number 1 to 6.

How to operate the radio in a Dodge Intrepid 2002 to fix/set favorite radio stations?


Hold down the one of the numbered buttons (1-6 I think) at the bottom for 3-5 seconds while listening to the radio station you want to save. You should hear a beep, and the station will be saved.

LG LX-M240 operating instructions: I cannot set the presets


Owner's Manual is PN 3834RH0020U
On pg13
1. Press TUNER/BAND to select AM or FM
(Leftmost rectangular button on left of volume knob)
2. Select station by using TUNING +/-
3. Press PROGRAM/MEMO on the remote
A preset number will appear.
4. Press PRESET +/- (or PRESET ^/v on remote) to
select the preset number you want.
5. Press PROGRAM/MEMO again. The statio is stored.
6. Repeat above for more stations.

Believe you can store up to 30 stations.
Stations on presets 1, 2 and 3 take longer to 'kick in' when listening to the radio
as they are the 'tens' prefix for the preset numbers. 4 - 9 'kick in' immediately.
