Question about Sony ICF-CD543RM Clock Radio

Open Question

My SONY tv/weather/FM/AM CD Kitchen Clock Radio ICF-CD543RM functioned just fine until I unplugged it for several days. Then it refused to pick up any of the TV stations it had had no trouble with before, and has not broadcast any TV audio since. We are only talking about channels 2 to 13. Is this problem related to the loss of signal for TV analog broadcasts we all experienced? Can I not pick up the new digital signal? Can SONY supply a patch for this? -- Thank you, E Bloedel, SLC UT.

SOURCE: cant set the time on my Sony ICF-C318 digital clock

thank you all for giving me your solutions, but i managed to fix the clock myself when my dog accidentally stepped on it (which isn't exactly a great solution so don't try it if you have the same problem as me). Actually it turns out my clock was missing one of the buttons for adjusting the time when I looked at the box it came in, but somehow stepping on it seemed to fix it. Thank you very much though for all your help....if I ever have troubles with anything else I'll know where to post my problem!

thanks again

SOURCE: CD player stopped working on Sony ICF-CD831 PSYC Clock Radio/CD P

I've been able to prolong the life on mine by doing this:

Insert the disc, then spin it by hand and quickly close the door and hit play.

It's always worth using a laser cleaner first, as it may just be dirty and stops spinning because it cannot read the disc.

SOURCE: FM reception for Sony ICF-CD513?

The electrical cord acts as an antennae for this radio. Uncoiling the cord will give the best reception for FM. Rotating the radio (and built in ferrite bar antennae) will give the best reception for AM listening.

How do I order extra remote control for Sony ICF-CD543RM? The button for volume decreasing stopped working and we lost the remote control in the move. Is it possible to order another one?


Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:
http://remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Display&contents=help_deadremote&uuid=A12963989782821
They also sell replacement remotes.

Zoom in on the picture of the original remote provided on the site (or look at your own) and get the actual remote model number.

or check eBay: search for "(model of the device or the remote) remote", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.

Sony ICF-CD855V clock radio no power


Transformer wire that connected to one of the AC terminals was broken. Soldered a jumper wire between the terminal and the transformer. The most difficult part was finding a tool to remove the 3 triangle headed screws from the power supply, ended up making my own tool.
