Why is the radio switching itself off?

Not knowing what brand or model radio, or how OLD it is, I have to say if it is powered by A/C electricity or by battery, then something inside is getting hot and it is shutting down to prevent further damage.
If running on battery power, maybe the battery or 1 of the batteries has gone bad?
Is the device charged with a cable?
Maybe it is not charging.
Faulty cable?
Is the charging source faulty?

My eton E5 will not reset when I press the reset button.

Unplug the AC adapter. Remove the batteries. Press & hold down any front panel button for about 10 seconds. Repeat for any 2 more buttons. Then reset with the paper clip. Do not install weak batteries, or try to restart or reset the radio after it shut off because of weak batteries. Weak, dead, or shorted batteries, tend to make the processor inside or the reset function to screw up.

My Midland WR120 just started beeping today and I can't figure out why by looking at the Owner's Manual. It beeps every five to ten minutes, one beep. No alarm is set, I have it set to notify me...

According to Midland's support staff, this happens if the radio goes for 10 days without a weekly test signal from NOAA. To stop the beeping, simply turn off the power switch on the right side of the radio for a few seconds (if yours has it), or unplug the radio and remove one battery, wait a few seconds, then plug it back in and reinstall the battery you removed. You won't lose your settings if you have to unplug it and remove a battery, but you will have to reset the clock.

ICF 2010, no sound suddenly

If the radio does not work with headphone then the external jack for audio may have broken loose from it's soldered points. Simple re solder may make the repair. Beyond that it would have to be diagnosed by a technician.

Don't know how to recharge the batteries while they are installed in the radio.

Had to repeat depressing the 'Reset' button at least 4 times before the set would come on. This may have been due to fact that the unit had not been used in almost a year. Also found that the set was shutting down when the status of the battery charge was checked. This was most likely caused by two defective batteries. Put in a new set of 4 rechargeable batteries and unit is now working fine.

Battery Get Discharged within few Minutes even after Full Charge

I have the same problem, and for now an external charger is the best solution. Also try resetting 4 times. I also got a new power supply, but problem persist. Good luck!!!

02 Ultra radio switches from cb to radio on its on

06 and newer CB modules have a weather alert feature that will switch to a radio station in case of an alert. The radio stations sometime transmit the signal by mistake. Check to see if your CB has this feature and if it does, turn it off

Cuts off

This is simply a low battery issue. If you replace the batteries it should work. Apparently, the unit has a voltage sensor that cuts off the radio when the voltage drops too low. However, eventhough the radio will not run, there is still sufficient voltage left in the batteries to run the light.

This is why the radio will run when plugged into AC.

Hope this works for you !!!!
