SOURCE: tuning DAB radio
Just bought the same unit but the instruction manual was double dutch. After messing around for a while I managed to do it like this. Whe the unit is set to DAB, Press the Sel+/TU+ or the Sel-/TU- button on the unit (not the remote) until the DAB station displays and then press the Select CH+ button again on the unit. Wait a few seconds while the word "tuning" is displayed and that station should now play. To save the station as a preset do this. When the station is playing use the remote and press the PRG/MEM button once. Then press the number for which preset you want that station to be. The station will be saved. EG to save Radio 1 as Preset station 1, play Radio 1, Press PRG/MEM, then press number 1. After that whenever you press number 1 on the remote Radio 1 will play. Do the same with any other station you wish to save. To save station 10 press the 0/10 button on the remote. To save station 11 press 10+ then 1, 12 is 10+ the 2 etc. Good luck Dopeyemma

SOURCE: DAB radio model Sharp FV-DB1E
This is SwannerX and I have solved the problem by locating the DAB radio receiver to a higher position ( some 6ins. higher only ) and orienteering the aerial in an opposite direction.
All 25 stations now tune O.K. and signal quality still reads in the high 90's and signal strength shows 9-10 bars. This is not substantially any more , but it has done the trick!!!
I am still very puzzled why it would not work again in the original position where it has worked well for many years.
Obviously DAB requires a good strong signal as I am living very close to the transmitter at Mounteagle in the Black Isle and the set is upstairs in the house to achieve the highest signal into the set's whip aerial.
Another annoying query I can give you is this :- Every time I do a full AutoTune operation on the DAB receiver , it ALWAYS comes ON tuning BBC Asian 1st. so that station comes up as a 'Favorite' on the Radio's screen. No matter how many other stations I select and listen to for at least 20secs. say, the BBC Asian one STILL is listed as a FAV.
Is this a peculiarity of the Sharp design or a function of the transmission system?
Maybe this BBC Asian is on the first freq. the DAB Radio scans, but I would have thought it would come ON every time with the last station which was selected before it was switched OFF.
What do you think ???

I used lateral thinking! looked at the instructions for my other matsui DAB radio and worked it out from there. With this Ferguson model you have to find the station you want manually and then press one of the preset buttons (it only has 4 but these are enough for me)

This is not a solution but a suggestion - My Dad has this Hi-Fi and also has the same problem, unfortunately his warranty ran out 6 months ago. So, because of this I opened the stereo up. Inside there is a little (4in by 3in approx) PCB at the bottom back of the Hi-Fi above the CD section. This PCB is the tuner board. On this board there is another board (hybrid) with a BGA (Ball Grid Array) chip. BGA's sometimes lose connections between the pads on the board and the contacts under and on the chip. I am away in Germany for a little while but in 3 weeks when I visit my Mum & Dad again I am going to take the tuner board out and take it to work where we have a special heat gun for lifting surface mount chips. I am going to flux and reheat the BGA chip to reflow the joints under the chip. I am a Senior Test Technician with PCB experience so I DO know what I am doing. I let you all know how it goes.
