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

Dewalt radio dw911 will play on mains but nothing with battery only

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.

Dc011 radio works with battery but wont work when plugged in what could it be

Sounds like the mains transformer has gone. That is what reduces the mains outlet power of 110 volt to that of the batteries.

You could check the power cord though for 110 volts at the end.

The battery is fully charged. It works while connected to the mains, but if i turn it off and remove the power cord (so it works on the batteries) it won't turn on. However, it will turn on while connected...

Change the battery in it. It can be found online. It is easily accessed on the back of the radio, by unscrewing 2 philips screws. I had the same problem with mine, with an old battery. Once turned on, I could unplug it and it would play for 12-14 hours. Apparently the iPal needs a higher voltage when it turns on, so your old battery is not able to deliver that.

My Sangean ATS 808 AM/FM/SW Radio reciever shows a flashing E on startup and won't operate. Any answers on resetting or other solution?

Hello, I assume that this only happens when you are using it on batteries and the unit works when plugged into the mains. If this is the case it most likely is a faulty or dirty connection in the main battery chamber. Clean all contacts reload new batteries and try again.

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 Wharfedale DA_110E radio works on the mains but not the batteries. I have tested the batteries & they are OK. The battery connections look OK & are clean.

Try rubbing the battery connections with sand paper or a shap object. If this still fails, the battery laed my have come away from the circuit board inside the radio.

Radio works on mains but not battery

I take it the battery has life in it ? check the connections to where the battery makes contact on the radio, your battery contacts may not be connecting to the radio or they may need cleaning. Does the radio charge the battery still ?

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.
