Re: no fm reception

We had trouble switching from AM to FM. We finally solved the problem by pushing the reset button on the back of the unit (any sharp pointed object can be used to engage the reset button). Do this followed by setting the mode to FM and try tuning in your FM stations. Try the procedure several times and it may finally kick in, as was the case with us getting our AM stations

I can't get the AM radio to find a signal. All other components work fine.

If you get FM radio stations, and only AM reception is immpossible, check whether AM loop antenna has connected to the respective poles at the back side. If it is connected, and still you do not get the Amplitude Modulation [AM] signals, check the input settings of the device is correct to recive AM. There will be a slelection option, for AM & FM. OK.

Connect a good FM antenna to the unit's antenna jack to make sure you get good radio reception. Power on the unit. Press the Tuner/Band button. Adjust volume and tune to a known station using the up or down arrow buttons..

I am getting poor reception on fm stations---even local npr!

Did you check the connections on the back for your antenna? Sometimes they get loose or corroded and just a quick turn from a screwdriver cleans the connection. Other than that, has to be receiver or antenna I guess.

No antenna, no radio reception

If the model number is SC-AK630, please confirm. The antenna should still be available from any Panasonic part distributor. Please confirm the model and I'll get you the part number and cost.

Better fm reception

Is it just a single wire?

If so, purchase a cheap FM antena. It looks like a "T" when spread out (4' to 5'). That should help.

You can purchase an "amplified" antenna, but if your area reception is really bad (such as in a valley) the antenna would just amplify the noise as well. Look for web based radio in this case or if you have cable there are stations on it.

FM or AM

You may have to manually set the preset stations on the unit itself. Read the user manual.
