Radio wont power up - ICOM Informatique Icom IC-F21 16ch UHF radio

    A radio that will not power up can be many things. The most simple is the battery. Try a freshly charged battery. If this does not work, check battery termanals and radio termanals for damage. If everything checks out OK it's time for a tech to check the inside. I do this all the time and it is always a simple fix. Carl

Galaxy dx-44v wont power on

check near the rear of the radio.. around the power input connection and the audio transformer there should be a 1n4001 diode.. check it for a short. replace it if it is.. and it should power up.. also in the same area check for any shorted traces.. on the circuit side.. also
on the sides of rci main board radios near the bracket screws theres a transistor voltage regulator.. make sure its connected to the board.. sometimes they come loose.

Just fitted new power supply after repair but power supply working but it wont power up .....please help

Check the fuse. Blowing a power supply does not happen. Blowing a fuse often does. If the power supply truly went out, it is too small in amperage. More information on the power supply may help.

My bose wave radio wont turn on. It has no power

I have the exact same AWR1-1W model for repair last week. I am assuming you have a meter and you also have soldering skills here.
You might want to check the Q4 transistor (2SC3792) for a short on the two outide pins. With the power disconnected, measure with a multimeter the resistance between the two outside pins of the Q4 transistor. If you measure anything between 0-3 ohms it is shorted. Replace this part with a similar part or you could replace it with the new Bose recommended part - 2SD438F-MP-E but it is very hard to obtain. I have used an 2SC2655 instead and had no problems so far with the radio. This radio also came in totally dead with no display nor the radio working.

The a/c power wont work. Tried several different

check the power plug used to connect the clock radio to the mains power,if it does not come on.then you have to open the back cover of the clock radio to check for blown fuses, because this are the common problem found in electronics appliances.
Also check the transformer with the use of an ohmmeter, to read if the components are okay.
Good luck.....

I disconnected the negative battery cable, and reconnectd it to fix check engine light, now my aux 2 wont show up on my radio dial, so my sattelite radio wont work

when you disconnected the power from the radio you lost your presets radios have two power lines one is primary and is used to power everything while on the other is a remote power line and is only used to keep clock and presets so what you going to have to do is ind your user manual and reconfigure the radio to accept the satellite radio on the second aux input

hope this helped

Cobra 25 ltd wx wont power up

You most likely blew a Diode that is back near the power plug.

It is easy to fix the diode but if you continued to apply power you may have damaged other parts including the audio chip.

Radio wont light up

Check the inline power fuse first/or replace it! If that does'nt work then next make sure the radio is in the operating possition on the switches labeled>cb/pa< to cb mode. If this does'nt work then you may have a wire from your power plug inside the radio broken loose or a blown diode. If in fact the wire is connected inside the radio the diode would be my next guess. This happens when the polarity of the radio is reversed(hooked up backwards). This can be fixed relativley easy at your local radio shop for about 30$. Good Luck.
