Question about Sangean ATS 818 AM/FM/SW Radio

WX cc Sangean radio cuts out

It cuts out after a couple of minutes. We took the batteries out and they are low..so now we want to put a power cord on it instead of using batteries. Our concern is that it has no transformer on the cord..is it safe to use or is there a built in transformer in the radio itself.
Thanks

    All I need to know is...Is it safe to use a power cord from radio shack without a transformer box on it for our Sangean CC radio?

    We don't want to blow fuses.

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

My cobra 18 wx st comes on and goes tru all channels but has no noise at all coming thru it. none of the signal strength lights come on or anything. its brand new.


Sounds like a antenna issue. Make sure coax is in good order.and antenna is connected properly. You might have to get a "swr" meter to put in line between radio and antenna to make sure antenna is "tuned" to were the radio is operating. Radio shack sells a ok low budget swr/power meter.

Package, manuel and receipt were accidentally thrown away and we don't know how to charge the radios. They work, but are running low on battery power! They have a power supply cord that you plug both...


From what I just read on the Cobra website, you may be misinterpreting the battery indicator lights:

My radio keeps showing low batteries

This may simply be a matter of misinterpreting the low-battery indicator. We use two different types of battery indicators:
  1. Battery Level Indicator: This battery indicator is always visible, and has several segments. When all the segments are lit, the batteries are full. When only the last segment is lit, the batteries are almost exhausted.
  2. Low Battery Indicator: This type is usually NOT visible. It only appears when the batteries are low, at which time it flashes on the display to warn you of a low battery condition.
Please note that when you turn on your radio it first performs a display test. Everything on the display will light up for a few seconds, including the Low Battery Indicator. This does not mean that the batteries are low. After a few seconds the display test will end, at which time the Low Battery Indicator should go away.

Here is a link to the Manual for your radio:

https://www.cobra.com/downloads/manuals/PR260WX_MANL.pdf

It is a PDF file, which requires that you have Adobe Reader or equivalent installed on your computer for it to open and display properly. If you don't have it, it can be found here (it's free!):

LCD display has gradually disappeared, now I have nothing. I have had this problem with other sangean products. Is there something that can be repaired? If so where can I send it for repair? Please...


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.

Remove the battery compartment door and the batteries. There should be a small hole marked "reset" under the upper battery cradle. Press (gently...until it clicks) and hold for 5 seconds. Replace batteries and try again.

ATS 505 Power Supply Problem


Make sure no other buttons are held down when powering up, although you usually see a clock on the display if there is power but the unit is locked up for another reason. The fact that you've tried batteries and you've tried the PSU suggests to me that there is some other problem with the radio, it could be as simple as a dry joint, but without experiencing the same problem myself it's not possible to suggest anything further.
