Question about Philips DCM230/37 iPod Docking Executive 30 Watt Micro Audio System Shelf System
My Philips Docking Entertainment System DCM230/37 works great, except that I can't tune to the exact AM radio station that I want. I had an AM tuner before that you could switch between USA mode (with radio stations stopping on even numbers like AM or MW 620, AM 960, AM 1360, etc) and a foreign mode (with the digital receiver stopping on odd numbers like AM or MW 621, AM 963, AM 1359, etc).
I can't figure out how to switch it to the USA mode; it stops on the odd numbers, not the even numbers where the stations are broadcast.
AM is just another name for MW. The Radio should tune to a strong signal regardless of the frequency the radio is set to. It should also sweep the entire frequency looking for stations. I'm assuming it has a channel scan setting, plus options to set a number for the station. AM/MW are very much dependent on the position of the either internal or external Ariel. If you have the radio in the wrong position or you have some electrical equipment nearby it could block the signal for the station you want, but not affect the others. Which might explain why it can't find the station you want.

Mine did the same, the station was trying to connect on channel 1 wi-fi where the centre was on channel 11, check under information and wi-fi for both. I then did a restore on the station, put both into installation mode and they found each other after a few mins.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: cd stuck in philips dcm 230
I had the same issue today and came up with a solution...maybe not the best, but it worked. I unplugged the unit and then holding it by the sides (which I was sitting down) struck (not too hard) the unit onto my knees. Be sure you are holding the unit with the CD opening facing the floor. You may have to do this a few times, but the CD should start to come out, after which you should be able to grab hold of the disc and pull it gently out. Once I did this, I inserted another CD and everything worked fine. Being the daring type (obviously), I tried the original CD again, and like the first time it got stuck again and I had to repeat the same process. I came to the conclusion that for whatever reason, the CD was bad and tossed it out. Any other CD I put in the unit works just fine. Bottom line, it may be crude, but it works!
