Loud buzz all freq

Sony ICF-SW1s have not used for a few years. Added batteries today and can scan and get stations but the constant buzz does not go away even when the volumn control is at zero.

My ICF-SW7600 has a clipping sound when first


It's hard to describe a sound in words, so I'm not sure I know what your "clipping sound" sounds like. You may be describing what's called "motorboating", which is a loud rapid putt-putting that drowns out the desired sound until it fades away. This is usually due to power supply problems, most often caused by bad filter capacitors. If I remember this model correctly, it doesn't have a built-in supply so you need to run it with an external adapter. That may be the source of your trouble. Try a different adapter or use battery power to see if the problem goes away.

If this problem only shows up when you're tuned to the station on 93.9, your radio may be picking up some kind of interference. It's also possible (but very unlikely) that the radio itself is producing a "birdie", which is a false signal on some frequency. If this is the case, it's a very obscure problem that may be very hard to find.

Sorry I can't be more precise, but maybe this will get you started. Thanks for using Fixya!

I have a Sony icf 2010. No sound, but white noise.


AA batteries need replacing or the contacts are corroded and one more, the PC board is connected to the AA negative post by a wire that touches the pad on the PC board. Sometimes it will lose contact because of oxidation or corrosion, to fix this a wire soldered is best but just repositioning the wire will make the cure. Requires removal of the circuit boards.

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.

ICF 2010, no sound suddenly


If the radio does not work with headphone then the external jack for audio may have broken loose from it's soldered points. Simple re solder may make the repair. Beyond that it would have to be diagnosed by a technician.
