Hi, the Dav-s400 system was one of the units that had bad solder joints and this led to intermittent bad power contacts with different issues arising. There is a page on the internet that helps you to take apart and resolder the joints if you are that way inclined. I done mine myself and followed the instructions from the internet page. If you type in Dav-s400 bad solder joints you should find the page. Its that or you put it into a repair shop its not a big job. I hope this cures your FM problem. p.s. make sure the aerial is plugged in properly first, it could be something has maybe dislodged it from the back panel.It is just a very thin black wires on a plastic aerial holder.

2013 Santa Fe Sport radio on am 670 cuts out and back in with varied times off. If I toggle to the next station and back it is there right away. The station does not have a problem on my other car. This is...


cuts out ?
well, all FM radios cut out for.:
1: weak station.
2: stereo can not be held in properly( can be bypassed on most RAD , pick mono)
3: AGC drop out, same as #1

on better radios (RTM) you can defeat these default features.
set the FM to mono channel mode, and now you hear all stations.
also kill the AGC mode. this allows you to hear
the station. and static or both. like a Marconi radio of days of old.
modern radios are programmed to blank weak stations.
tis a fact. im a tech and tuned these features, for 50 years.

ok the fix,
1: move closer to station
2: get a better antenna (vast choices)
3: go to station and turn the gain knob up and get arrested by FCC.

How do i change the AM radio to FM?


Hello
Press RADIO BAND.AUTO PRESET until the band you want appears in the display (direct power on). Each time you press this button, the indication changes as "FM" --> "AM". Hold down TUNE + or --, until the frequency digit begins to change in the display. The player automatically scans the radio frequencies and stops when it finds a clear station. If you can't tuned in a station, press the button repeatedly to change the frequency step by step. If FM broadcast is noisy, press "MODE" until "Mono" appears on the display and the radio will play in monatural without any noise. Only strong FM signals can be decoded to stereo. OK.

Can't find the clear tuner fm frequency


I have a JVC deck myself and had the same problem but if you read the manual it recommends that owner should use mono mode when using FM. Since changing to mono I am able to locate radio stations (frequencies).

Here is the link to the manual

I have a new Onkyo TX-SR508 receiver. When listening to FM radio the audio cuts out repeatedly for anything from a few seconds to a minute. Power fluctuation is very unlikely to be the problem. Signal...


Does the display show "tuned" or "FM Stereo"? This would normally indicate a good reception. The tuner has a signal level threshold and if the signal gets to week, the receiver mutes to prevent noise in the speakers. Swithing to mono make reception less intolerant. Does the problem also occur, when you switch to mono?

Iriver e10 how to record radio


http://www.osnews.com/story/17860/Review:_The_OGG-Compatible_iRiver_E10

After you long press the right arrow button the special menu appears: Record, Saved FM Recording, FM Recording Quality, Save Preset, Stereo/Mono, Auto preset, Tuner region. The FM Radio works very well, it has amazing reception compared to cellphones with FM support, but it won't continue playback while you are reading a text file. You must stay in the FM app to have it activated.
