Re: Az 1574 Philips radio

Unplug the unit and take out any batteries ( power down the unit completely), Let the unit dry out for a few days or dry with a hair dryer ( low heat ). If the unit still dosn't work I would assume water has damaged the main board ( process board etc. ). If that is infact the sitution, chances are the unit is not worth fixing. Sorry for the bad news. I hope it works out for you.

Broken switch for cd/tape/radio

Hi. If the switch is not mechanically broken, the problem is to be found in oxydation from the contacts. A treatment with contact-cleaner mostly cures the problem.

When i buy sony cassette tape, it records good on just one side of a cassette. the other side rather outside mic or inside off radio is very low almost impossible to hear up close.

Check and clean the mechanism parts of your casette player mechanism. Look whether there is dirt accumulated on the capstan shaft and pintch rollar of the mechanism. This is the main cause of tape slip and irregular output from it. OK.

CD player says "no disk" when there is disk in player.

Get a CD Cleaner and check your electric current output to make sure it matches the voltage requirement.

If the CD Cleaner doesnt work, then replace your CD Lens

When I press play, my tape player eats the tape.

that means that the uptake wheel is not turning. typically this is caused by a rubber band that is insde the transport mechanism that connects the motor to the wheel.

if you are comfortable taking the device apart, you will need to find the right band and just pop it on.

Panasonic XRB RXCT950 Boom box radio,tape and plug in CD player

It sounds like your unit has a LOT of broken solder connections and dirty potentiometers. Unless you are VERY good at soldering and want to invest about 1 to 2 hours of time, I would toss it and start fresh.

Intermittent Power Problem when playing CDs

Hello db1964,

I have a cdf-e75 that had a similar problem, although the red power light was dim for all functions. (the radio, tape and cd)
After opening up the unit and inspecting, I found one of the pins on the printed circuit board for the power had broken away from the solder. (it is a tiny board where the AC connector is soldered to) Seems in my unit there is nothing securing the molded AC connecter to the plastic case except the the printed circuit board it is soldered to-It is a poor design; perhaps your is the same? I suspect over time pushing the AC cord into the back of the player may have broke the connection? Anyway, I soldered the connection and I have never had any additional problems as the unit has worked fine since.
Don't know if this helps, but my suggestion would be to open the unit and inspect the pin connections on the AC printed circuit board to see if any have a loose/broken connection. ( Mine was not noticible with the naked eye as I had to use a magnifying lens and a bright light. Hope this might help.
