Re: Dewalt radio dw911 will play on mains but nothing...

If you pull of the back cover you will find two small fuses near power supply, one of these allows power from battery pack, check with voltmeter for open circuit, I take it that it is not just one battery it does this with.

I have a Dewalt radio (Dw911) that will only play off the battery, not the power cord. I have checked both fuses and found both to be good. It sounds as if this is a common issue but I have found no...

Mine had the same problem .Try swapping the fuses. Although the fuse looked good mine was bad. Easy fix I hope. Going to auto parts store for new ones.

My dewalt dw911 radio/charger works on either mains or battery but wont charge a battery and blows an internal fuse when both are used together

More than likely your internal charger is faulty. Inside your inernal charger unit check the 2 anmp fuse which is white in colour.

I had the same problem with the case not coming apart after I took the screws off, but thanks to someone posting a suggestion on this website, I was able to take it apart and take care of the problem. Use a soft mallet and use it around the seam of the radio until it pops loose.

By the way, my original problem with the radio was that it would not get any power at all, whether using the power cord, or an 18v battery. I was able to fix the problem by replacing the fuse located inside the case (250v / 1AMP) great now!! Many thanks to all of you who posted suggestions on this great website!!

Have you changed the AA Batteries, this is often the fault, when they are flat they lock the radio out. HHM Dewalt Service
