The Phone must be on.
The SIM card must be a valid one.
The station you listen to and the network operator you use, must support the service.
The headset or enhancement needs to be attached to your phone. for the FM radio to function properly, it's an aerial as well as a headset.
Therefor if you are in a poor reception area for making/receiving calls it will also affect the radio signal.

Fm radio works fine but the dab will not find any stations, I have tried different aerials and still no good


What's the make & model of the radio?
Most DAB/FM radios work from the same antenna, so if you receive FM stations, you should receive DAB stations in your area.
It should be noted that DAB transmitters work on lower power than conventional FM transmitters, and so you may be in a weak reception area (for DAB). It should also be noted that DAB uses different frequencies than regular FM stations and household appliances such as laptops,WiFi, microwave ovens, etc can affect DAb reception.

Bad fm reception


This is probably due to the area your FM antenna is placed. If your house/office is surrounded by buildings, the signal will weaken and fade before it reaches the antenna. Also, if it is surrounded by many walls(i.e. deep inside an office complex), you will have bad reception.

No FM radio reception,AM reception is okay.


You are going to have to pull the radio out and make sure that the antenna wire is plugged in securely to the back of the radio, this would give you the FM channels.

Best Buy hooked up my sirius radio through the fm tuner.


Yes you can my brother bought one of those after market radios and you can run it on three different channels you need to find one that has nothing on it including hiss. look in the book and it will tell you the different channels. Also Be sure you have the reciever on the dash in the center at the top for best reception or lower it tothe middle to find the best reception you can get. it is important to get it in the right place for it to work.

Cannot dial specific FM radio station on Ccreative Zen 4 GB mp3 player and when I auto connect, I get 1 or 2 channels but not the ones i want


It's not necessarily a defect in your specific player - double check the latest firmware on Creative's website to see if it fixes any known issues with the FM radio. If not, you can try exchanging it at the store, but you may have the exact same problem with the next player. Also, try tuning outside or in a different area, and see if you get better reception.

SL100 static and bad FM reception


I have noticed various changes in my invehicle FM reception as well. There should be a external antenna that came with your car kit. This is precisely for these types of issues. It is designed to run along the windshield inside the car closest to the Cars radio antenna. It should plugin to the bottom of the cradle. Then tune it into a clean FM station (one that has no local station on it) and position the cradle and/or ext. antenna till you get the best reception in your vehicle. It could very well be that the antenna has come has loose on your car stereo backplane. You would probably notice decreased reception on regular AM/FM stations as well though.
Your wifi reception/functionality is a completely different animal and has no bearing on the FM transmitter in the car cradle. When your on wifi your not receiving signal from a sat. anymore just simply streaming internet audio like your computer.
Good luck.
