Radio Shack can get you an antenna, or a long wire (or wire coat hanger actually works too)

That sounds like some internal hardware issue on the Radio. You don't happen to have a cell phone by the unit when this is happening do you? Cell phones can cause this issue with radio frequency interference.... but if it continues for more than a few minutes I'd say it's actually hardware inside the radio that is malfunctioning. Sadly the answer may be to just replace the radio :(.

Thanks
Tim

hi,
There is a Gang capacitor behind the tunning knobe of your radio. If this gang capacitor is faulty it will make difficult to tune the station accuratly and also will make static when rotating the tuning knobe. You have to replace the Gang capacitor. To see the gang capacitor you have to oppen the radio. It will look like one the picture.

Variable condensator


My first solution was to clean the plates of the variable capacitors inside the radio, with isopropyl alcohol.
After that, for some time, let me listen and tune enough well.
But was an illusion: after some weeks the capacitor still add noise during the tuning. My disappoint about this radio is very high, as its price. The choice of this kind of variable capacitor is very big design mistake.

Solution for the stability problem


GE and RCA SR-3 production suffers from an ill-advised change in tuning potentiometer. It causes the tuning to be unstable - the radio is almost unusable due to difficulty in tuning to stations and the radio has difficulty staying on stations.

The value of the pot is a bit unusual - 300k. I have found that a 500k pot, with 470 fixed resistors across each leg (low to middle, middle to high) allows the radio to tune the entire AM and FM bands, although dial calibration is really bad. The tuning voltage high and low pots will need to be adjusted at the very least, and the whole front end will probably need re-alignment.

I have modified at least a half a dozen of these radios this way, Fry's has an appropriate pot but the shaft is aluminum and needs to be machined. The radios are as stable as early production SR-3's, and are fine DX units.

The FM section can also benefit greatly from the narrow ceramic filter modification. I can routinely use the radio for stations over 100 miles away after the modification.

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.

Hello, I purchased a Tivoli Model One few months ago and I noticed that after tuning a radio station (strong signal, amber light on), the signal will fade out in ten minutes or so and I need to tune it...


hi,

it looks like its got a hookup for an external antenna on the back, hook a wire to it or better yet hook it up to a pair of rabbit ears, look at the back and make sure your hooking it up to the right connector am/fm

The mute light Is on and the radio won't play. But if we play It threw the did player it works. How do I get the mute off for the radio?


If the MUTE is right next to the TUNED, it means the FM is muting inter-station noise until you tune a station strong enough to produce good audio. This has nothing to do with speaker MUTING.

Find FM Mode (page 14) and change it to Mono. Then you will hear the noise between stations until you find one strong enough. Install an anenna (page 3) and you might get strong enough signals to return the mode to Auto.

Can't seem to tune many stations at all. Also once a station is tunned it "slips".


The antenna works with the power cord. Try extending the length of its power cord with an extension cord.
Position of the radio in the room, the furniture in the room and your position in relation to the radio all affect its reception.
If there is a place to connect an external antenna, this will be helpful. Check with Radio shack and best buy for a FM loop antenna. Usually the wire is flat.
An inexpensive antenna for FM only is also a cheap alternative

My Tivoli Model One makes a loud screech/buzz noise


I had the same problem and was able to repair it quite easily. Only thing needed is some basic soldering skills.

Problem description:

  • Suddenly a quite loud and disturbing (scratch/screech/buzz) noise appears.
  • Sometimes the noise is gone but it reappears sooner or later.
  • Changing volume or radio band / input (am, fm, aux) does not affect the noise (even on volume turned down all the way).
  • The signal coming out of the Headphones / Rec Out plug is not affected.

Cause:

  • Cold solder joints

Solution:

  • Unplug from mains
  • Remove back panel (the two black screws next to the plugs in the center). The back panel sticks quite firmly, so it might help to remove the front panel first (the 4 screws in the corners) and carefully press out the back panel from the inside. (The other two (silver) screws are used to attach the transformer to the back panel) and need not to be loosened.)
  • On the circuit board at the back panel locate the plug that goes to the speaker (is says "J2"). Check the solder joints. In my case, looking closely, I could see that they're not good anymore.
  • Renew the joints by heating them up and applying some fresh soldering tin. I also renewd the joint from the wire bridge next to the plug. Just check the other solder joints on the board.

In my case afterwards the problem was gone and the device is working properly again.

Scratchy noise while tuning


I've found the best way to fix this is to drop alcohol on the tuner while turning it fast back and forth, with the power OFF.
