Question about Grundig G4000A FM/AM Radio

1 Answer

AM/SW no longer functioning - FM still works fine

I am no longer able to receive AM or SW broadcasts on my radio. It still works perfectly on the FM band, but when I switch to the other two, I only hear "clicks" as I tune the radio up and down. It does show the digital frequency readout still, but it does not show anything for signal strength on AM or SW. Is there anything I can do myself, or should I send it in for repair? I contacted one repair facility that requires a $30 deposit to look at it. Would I be better off just buying a new radio? Thanks.

If it can fixed at a reasonable price, it might be better to try to have it repaired.
Hope it helps.

Nothing but static on all bands

There may be interferences from electrical appliances fridges, TV. Move the radio to some other place. For AM rotate the radio to get the best signal. For FM and SW deploy the telescopic antenna. For SW you may use an external antenna. For SW, to tune in on a station you need to know the broadcast time and the frequency.

I have had a Sony ICF SW7600 for the last 18 years. Now, it only wishes to work on batteries and not on the AC adapter anymore. What can be the problem and how to fix it

I have the exact same problem here in Europe with my perfectly with my Sony shortwave after 18 years. If I fiddle with the ac adaptor in the radio plug, it works for a while. I have replaced and soldered the yellow tip adaptor twice in 18 years and hopefully the problem is with the power plug and not the radio plug.
Any help is appreciated.

SW reception is very poor. Can receive no Ham operators only powerful broadcasts like Havanna. AM not bad, FM fair.

SW transmission depends on an atmospheric layer called the ionosphere. The density of ionized atoms present in the layer is dependent on the light from the sun and on solar activity. The rule of thumb is to tune in to the larger meter bands ( 49m, 41 m, 31m, 25m ) in the evening and at night and the shorter meter (31m, 25, 21, ...16, 10) bands in the day.

To tune in to a particular signal you need to know the exact frequency and the broadcast time. You can search the Internet for the frequencies of a particular radio station and the times when that station is broadcasting in direction of your region.

How do I get the BBC on the Grundig S350?

You need to know the broadcast frequencies (or wavwlengths) and the times at which BBC is broadcasting towards you part of the world. With frequency in hand tune in to it at the time BBC is broadcasting towards your location. There is a book which is published annualy. The title of the book is World Radio Handbook or some such thing.

My 4 year old YB P 2000 suddenly quit broadcasting AM. I took the radio apart and cleaned everything. Now only some FM stations and no SW reception. Can you help?

Look at the front case and locate reset hole. Insert cocktale stick or similar and listen for slight click. Insert new batteries, ensuring correct polarity and that there has been no leakage from old batteries on terminals. If leakage ie green/ uneven appearance, try to scrape clean with suitable implement when disconnected from mains only.

I replaced the batteries in my S350 and it started smoking.

There are any number of reasons for this to occur, but I would call Eton customer service in California. They're very helpfull and the number is located on the manual that came with the radio. If you no longer have that, just go to their web site.

Unfortunately, the limit on the warranty has run out, so their is probably nothing that can be done outside of buying a new one. ACT Electronics can fix Grundig radios, but the price will probably exceed the cost of this model.
