FM Reception with Jensen MSR3007

The FM reception was great for about three months with my new Jensen MSR3007. Then suddenly, the FM reception/sound became horribly static, with pops, crackles and the sound will fade in and out. I have replaced the antenna to a power Jensen antenna and it still makes the same static, pop and the sound fades in and out. All the other components, CD, iPod and auxillary input work fine. Any suggestions as to what Is wrong with my FM reception? thanks for your help. I have similar problem. Howard, did you ever find a solution?

    Update: Don't buy Jensen. The J stands for junk. I replaced one of these models with 5 hours of playtime on it with a brand new one via warranty. I also had very limited play time, was removed from boat every winter. After it failed with same symptoms, I've opened it up and the workmanship inside is TERRIBLE. Lots of cold solder joints, especially the very large ones but more concerning is the jumper wire soldered to a male pin on the board. that same male pin is part of a plug connection. I'm ok with properly added fixes like an additional soldered component or jumper but not attached to this point. Bite the bullet, trash you radio and wired remote and replace it with another brand. You'll be happier in the long run and this will eliminate your frustration with Jensen Junk.

I have the exact same problem with the exact same stereo. I started by removing the in-line AM/FM/VHF Separator and connecting the antenna directly to the stereo. The static/popping/fade-out continued. Today I swapped to a new antenna, but it did not help. I swapped back to the original antenna and for a brief while, I had good reception. The I went to coil the excess antenna cable and the static/popping/fade-out resumed. I have narrowed it down to either the antenna connector coming out of the back of the stereo or an internal circuit. Either way, it does not look like a do-it-yourself fix.

    I have exactly the same problem. It appears the issue is in the antenna lead coming out of the back of the radio. The only true fix is to pull radio apart and solder new antenna lead to board. i try'd cutting and splicing new lead to old lead 3" from soldered connections with no success. The antenna lead is a very small diameter wire and I think is prone to this problem.
    Solution: Buy new radio.

I have a 1970's Sony AM Receiver ICR-9. Reception is poor and sounds almost like it is receiving on another band. It has been a great radio and would like to retain. Bill


Do you use an indoor antenna ? Nowadays, with all gear around, like micro-waves receptors, strong motors, satellites, etc., reception becomes quite poor, unless you use an external antenna, properly set to catch broadcast stations. FM reception particularly has its signal much improved in that way. Correct demodulation requires a good an somewhat large outdoor antenna. Hope I could help. Good Luck.

Poor radio reception with Jensen VM9512 in 2001 Nissan Altima


If you used the 2 plug nissan radio harness, there should be a blue wire on there which is the (power antenna) even if your car doesn't have a power antenna, this wire needs to be connect to power on the am/fm amplified ant which is used in many nissan cars.

if the jensen has a blue or a blue/white wire, connect it to one of those. if not, you can always connect it to the red ACC wire. that should solve your reception problem..

hope this helps

Reception on fm is not very good


Unfortunately there are only two real ways the reception could be "bad".

Either your MP3 player is a lemon itself (meaning a single defective product, in which case you can return it, if you bought it recently!)....OR, the more likely answer is that MP3 players with FM tuners generally don't have great reception.

I have run into one MP3 player that has pretty good reception, and that is the Zune. It lets you set presets and such as well. Hope that helps!

You may have a bad antenna or antenna cable.
FM signals are measured in microvolts and are easily influenced by poor antennas or a mashed antenna cable.

SL100 static and bad FM reception


I have noticed various changes in my invehicle FM reception as well. There should be a external antenna that came with your car kit. This is precisely for these types of issues. It is designed to run along the windshield inside the car closest to the Cars radio antenna. It should plugin to the bottom of the cradle. Then tune it into a clean FM station (one that has no local station on it) and position the cradle and/or ext. antenna till you get the best reception in your vehicle. It could very well be that the antenna has come has loose on your car stereo backplane. You would probably notice decreased reception on regular AM/FM stations as well though.
Your wifi reception/functionality is a completely different animal and has no bearing on the FM transmitter in the car cradle. When your on wifi your not receiving signal from a sat. anymore just simply streaming internet audio like your computer.
Good luck.
