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.

It says 'lock' on the screen and does not operate at all. How do you unlock?

This can happen if the Hold or Lock switch is in ON position. Watch is there is any Hold or Lock switch at any side of of your radio. If found then just slide it to off position. If the Hold or Lock button is in ON position it will deactivate all the other switches.

Original Freeplay windup radio.


Can't help you with the aerial. Mine made the same noise when winding down and I fixed that by pouring talcum powder around the windup section. Let it unwind and allow the talcum to go in,,,, and more grinding noises.

Locked radio?

I h ad the same problem which I took of the two black plastic caps removed the five screws which splits the radio in two pieces. Just follow the leads from the battery and disconnect the plug on the board until you lose the display then put every thing back together and reproggram it again.
