Radio works off battery but charger does not work

While the raido works with battery, the radio does not work off the AC power cord and the charger does not work. I have checked the internal fuse but it is fine.

Any ideas?

Re: Radio works off battery but charger does not work

I cam working on one and the transformers' primary winding is open. You will most likely need part # 429790-48 from Dewalt.

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.

Radio doesn't work on batteries

same problem here, but with my radio shack scanner. When I disconnect the cord, however, the low battery indicator symbol comes on for a bit so radio seems to be taking in juice. May try a better brand of battery or some rechargeables.

Radio works on ac power but not on batt power

"Radio works on ac power but not on batt power AA batt seams to be ok" The AA battery is only for the radio memory and clock. Have you put a battery from your drill in the radio? if so check fuse inside radio.

when you plug it in to ac volt did you hear any single click sound from the radio?. if no it could be just the fuse problem only. remimder radio has 2 fuses 1 for ac & 1 fuse for dc operation..fuse rating not the same.

This is a defect in the radio. Reportedly this issue was resolved in later vamps of production, but it still seemed to persist. We discontinued this model due to this exact reason. At this time there is no other solution and the factory can not tell us what the problem was and simply pointed to the LCD.

1. Does the AC cord look ok? Not damaged?
2. Have you tried another AC outlet?
3. Does the AC cord unplug from the radio?

When you operate the radio from the AC power cord, the radio uses an internal power supply consisting of a step-down transformer, rectifier, and filter that converts the AC to DC to operate the radio.

When you run the radio off of batteries, it powers the radio directly. In some radios, when you plug the AC cord into the radio, it activates a switch that disconnects the battery voltage to the radio so that the batteries wont be damaged from the voltage created by the internal supply.

The radio can be powered by either the batteries or the internal supply. You don't want either supply affecting the other, so that is why a switch is sometimes used.

Since the radio works fine off of batteries, that would indicate that there is a problem with the internal power supply. This could be a blown fuse, bad transformer or bad rectifier diode.

Good Luck,

WX cc Sangean radio cuts out

The ATS-818 needs a transformer. The transformer converts AC power to the DC used by the radio, so no. You need the transformer.
