Question about Sangean ATS 808A AM/FM/SW Radio
The front panel appears to work fine except for the audio controls (vol, balance, base, & treble), The clock works. No audio on the speaker or phone jack. One can tune on all bands and see the signal strength meter respond to stations you tune to. However the signal strength and stereo indicator does not respond on FM band.
Replaced with new batteries and reset the processor by dropping power did not help.
I am thinking it might be the FM MPX & preamp ICs. Any ideas?
If its not a micro-p glitch, sounds like the radio was subject to a spike or surge wile plugged into the AC adapter. If the "power" light stays on all the time, thats what happened. Believe me, I was Sangean America's tech from 1990-1995.
The fix is to replace a transistor, or fet in the main pwr supply. (Close to where the adaptor plugs in.)
I wish I could give more details, but its been 14 long, long years.
