On Sony am/fm radio the only way to receive am without static is to use battery power rather than plug in at wall. Is there a way to get static free reception with direct wall plug-ib

SOURCE: WHY CAN'T I GET AM RADIO RECEPTION - ONLY FM??

You need a seperate AM antena for your AM radio to work. If you look on the back of the system where the FM antenna is connected you will see a AM hole for an antenna. I had same problem hope it helps!

SOURCE: I no longer get any AM/FM reception. Not even

The power cord is the antenna. Try to position it as close to horizontal as possible.

SOURCE: When I plug my Bose

The Wave Radio uses the AC power cord as an antenna. Perhaps the two outlets are wired differently regarding ground and hot.

An interesting article...

yes if there's no antenna the cable should be stretch out towards outdoor and try to put the radio somewhere best static is out; other thing can be that the radio station is too far!

Improve reception


HI there,

Well Yes you can improve the reception, please follow the below steps -

Improve FM Radio Reception -
 
1. If you don't have an antenna connected to your FM receiver, purchase a simple dipole antenna--a simple T-shape flexible wire-- and connect it to the FM antenna inputs on the receiver. Because FM signals are directional, you'll want to experiment with the positioning of the wire to find the best reception of the station you're trying to receive.
 
2. If you're still not getting a good signal, try an indoor amplified antenna, which you'll find at an electronics store. Don't buy one unless you get a guarantee that you can return it for full credit if it doesn't solve your reception problems.
 
3. If your signal is weak because you live a long way from the transmitter, install an outside antenna and mount it as high as is practical. If you're primarily interested in getting signals from one station or from a group of stations in one direction, get a directional antenna and point it toward the transmitters.
 
4. If you're using a portable FM radio where the only antenna is the power cord, stretch the cord as straight as possible and experiment with positioning again.
 
5. Temporarily switch to monaural mode to improve a weak signal on an FM receiver.


Improve AM Reception -
 
1. Gradually rotate the radio 360 degrees. Leave it in the position where it sounds best.
 
2. Reverse the AC plug if it isn't polarized. (If you can flip the plug over, then it's non-polarized.)
 
3. Plug the radio into a different AC outlet.
 
4. Move the radio closer to a window.
 
5. Experiment to learn if appliances and powered products in your home are causing interference: computer monitor, television, electric blanket, light dimmer, fluorescent light, hair dryer, air conditioner, smoke detector. If possible, turn off the offending item. Otherwise, move the radio to another room.
 
6. Upgrade to an external antenna if your receiver, tuner or radio has a place to connect one.
 
7. Buy a passive AM antenna that doesn't need to be connected to a radio or receiver.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

I have a Sony cdx-c5005 in my Bryany boat that doesn't get any FM reception. CDs work perfectly fine.


Make sure that antenna is plugged in CXD-C5005 to provide radio signal to tuner, without antenna it wont give you any station sound.

I have a Sony ICF 2010 (for over 20 years) and when I turn it on, the only reception I get is on the FM frequencies (+ aircraft freqs). Thank you. Alex


Late answer on this.... There is a FET problem with older radios and this could be the problem. Static can "zap" the transistor making the radio deaf on receive in the AM modes.

FM RADIO Reception


No, it should work, although it will depend on how good your reception is. This depends on how strong the signal is where you are trying to receive. If you have tried scanning for channels and all you receive is static, it's possible your tuner is bad. Have you tried to tune it to a known good station manusally?

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.

Hi,
You can't initialize the FM radio without the handsfree attached because the phone uses the handsfree wire as an antenna. You can achieve this by building a special snap on to the phone that activates the pins on the port on the bottom of the phone...but it would be pointless since without the handsfree there would be no reception meaning you won't hear anything...just lot's of static.
