Re: time set and LAP

With the radio turned off and displaying the time, hold the MODE switch until the time display flashes (about 2 seconds). Release the MODE switch then quickly, use the TUN (up) to set hours, TUN (down) to set minutes.

Screen lock decode

Some Grundig/Eton radios have a button with a key lock symbol.Once the button is pressed it toggles between lock/unlock. In the lock status, the settings (frequency, time, scan, etc.) are disabled. Another function that is disabled is the Power On button. This feature prevent the radio to turn on if the power On button is pressed inadvertently when the radio is in a bag, or a suitcase.

I have an Eton G3 recently purchased which has an operators manual, but does not contain any references to the layout of the buttons etc. I would like a link to find out the correct use of the radio

The buttons are marked and the use of most of them is self-evident.
The number keys are used to enter frequencies (direct tuning).
Lock locks the radio and prevent changes (trurning ON or OFF, changing frequency, any function change is blocked)
Sleep sets a timer.
+, - go up or down in frequency, or when you are setting time.
U/LSB is for toggling Upper or Lower Side Bands.
Auto Up and Auto Down are for the automatic tuning system (scanning the frequency spectrum)
AM is for switching to the AM (medium wave band)
AM/Meter band is for switching to the Short wave bands, and FM is for Frequency modulation band.
VOL + and - increase and decrease volume levels

Page/time: It has 700 memory locations to store frequencies. These are organized in pages (maybe up to 100 pages). You jump to next page with that button. Used also when setting time . Please read the instructions.

F1 to F7 are used to select the day for the alarm. F1 for Day 1, Sunday, F2 for Monday, etc) You can set an alarm for each day of the week.
Reset to reset configuration
TZ/Line in TZ set time zone, Line In if you wan to use the speaker of the radio as the output device for a signal from some other radio, or MP3 player
The tuning knob may also be used to change the displayed value while setting time (I can't remember exactly. You have the manual)
Erase erasing a stored frequency or a page (Check that)
Copy see above.

Grundig satellit 800 antenna replacement

Assuming its broken outside the unit: most aerials are very similar to fit, serving the exact same function and not worth the cost of locating the exact same one used for your model due to time, and purchase costs.
Find an old transitor radio with similar sized aerial, ie length and diameter to fit your radio. Measure it and the replacement from an old radio you or a friend does not need.
Purchase a small screwdriver to remove and refit aerial to your grundig. Small sets of screwdrivers can be bought cheaply from discount stores, ebay etc.

Why does my weather radio just beep, no voice, no lights? I have put in all codes for my county

Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this. You want to know why your weather radio just beeps and no voice or lights function properly. This has nothing to do with the codes you put in for your county. This has to do was the type of alert setting that is programmed into the radio. The alert setting that you have programmed into the radio is probably that TONE alert type. When this is selected, the alert will sound for 5 minutes or until any button is pressed except for the Weather/Snooze button. If you want your alert type settings changed, press MENU and use the up and down directional buttons until "ALT TYPE" is displayed on the screen. Use those same directional buttons to choose the alert type of your choice. If you choose DISPLAY, a text alert will scroll on your screen and no audio alert type will be sounded. If VOICE is selected, an alert will be sounded 8 seconds and you will hear the voice of the weather broadcaster for 5 minutes. These are the only other alert types you can choose other than TONE. Once you have chosen your alert type, press SELECT and and press MENU to exit. Remember that the NWS will only alert you if the storm meets their serve weather criteria (meaning the storm has to be able to cause a certain amount of damage or life threatening to "Wake someone up in the middle of the night"). With this radio functioning properly, it can really help you out in the long run by alerting you with the lastest information of what's going on in your area. Thank you for choosing FixYa as your one-stop solution spot for your problems and thank you for reading my solution.I hope this is the solution to your problem and it clears up any confusion you may have. Have a good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you're reading this.

My ICF-7600D shuts off after a random time of use. The Timer function is not used. Happens with internal batteries or with external power supply. Computer batteries are OK. Thanks.

Not sure of the actual problem but try not to actuate the sleep function or the standby as this may cause the radio to turn off at intervals. I have the ICF2003, same thing.
