TA flashing on dash


It comes from RDS (Radio) - TA, TP (traffic announcement, traffic programme) The receiver can often be set to pay special attention to this flag and, for example, stop the tape/pause the CD or retune to receive a traffic bulletin. The TP flag is used to allow the user to find only those stations that regularly broadcast traffic bulletins whereas the TA flag is used to signal an actual traffic bulletin in progress, with radio units perhaps performing other actions such as stopping a cassette tape (so the radio can be heard) or raising the volume during the traffic bulletin.

Cheryl j11 radio beeps and says t p lost


Chery J11 radio beeps and says TP Lost

The Short Answer
This can be pretty annoying as the beep occurs every few minutes. The cause is that the advanced features of the radio are searching for broadcast traffic information, and can't find it.
Generally, only some of the radio stations in major cities carry traffic information, so this feature may not be very useful to you anyway.
To disable the beep, press the TA/AF button on the radio for more than 2 seconds, and you should see AF OFF appear on the display, meaning that the Traffic Announcement Alternate Frequencies feature is no longer searching for (and not finding) traffic information.
Unfortunately, the Chery radio manual doesn't fully explain this.

More...

Traffic Information (TA) Control
Some stations broadcast on the FM waveband have a TP code to signify that they carry traffic programme (TP) information. This is part of the RDS (Radio Data System) used on FM.
Activating traffic announcements
Before you can receive traffic announcements (TA), you must press the TA button. A TA display will appear to show the feature is switched on.
Note: On some units a short press to reach the TA feature.
If you are already tuned to a station that broadcasts traffic information, TA or TP will also be displayed. Otherwise the unit will search for a traffic programme and display TA SRCH or TP SEEK while doing so. If it cannot locate such a station, Not Found or NO TA will be displayed.

TP lost
If the TP signal of tuned station is lost after 30 seconds, an automatic TP seek for the next TP station will be performed. If no TP station is found, the unit will remain at the current station and display "TP LOST" for 2 seconds, and emit a beep.
TP seek will be performed periodically few minutes until a TP station is found.

Car radio won't work all it keeps saying is lost TP TA, what does this mean? please help.


TP is Traffic Programme. It is set if the radio station is likely to give traffic bulletins. You can search and store only those stations with the TP flag set if you want.

TA is Traffic announcement and is set when the tuned station is braodcast a bulletin. It then swiths the audo from mute or cassette or CD to receive it.

EON is extended other networks and is only I think available on BBC stations, so if you are going along listening to Radio 4 say and BBC SCR puts out a bulletin then the radio retunes to SCR for the duration of the bulletin, or longer if they do not switch the flag off!

As for volue, it seems to take the last volume used when the TA/EON flag was last used.

As for it going silent, keep pressing the TP button until you get a full set of TA, TP, EON, REG icons up!

Do not confuse all this with RDS-TMC which drives the data for the ETA on the TNS 200 and TNS300 Nave systems.

Hope this helps.

Need master code for radio in a 2000 ml320


Hi,

Regretfully due to reasons of theft or piracy we do not pass the radio codes here at FixYa. If you contact your local Mercedes-Benz dealer they will give you the 5 digit code. (You must have your registration and know the complete serial number of the radio)

I am not interested in traffic information at all. I want to hear radio without interruption, especialy when I sit at home. How can I prevent traffic information interrupting my radio ?


MostRDS radios can receive short messages which might include informationabout the presenter, station or programme you are listening to. Forexample, BBC Radio 1's RadioTEXT always gives information about thepresenter and programme e.g. JOHN PEEL - TONIGHT IN SESSION.. ETC.., whereas Classic FM gives information which includes a web address for the station, e.g. CLASSIC FM ON THE WEB - WWW.CLASSICFM.COM.The information will usually scroll across the display on a home tuner,but this could be distracting to a driver in a car, so the RadioTEXTmessage in a car hi-fi does not scroll.

Theradio display can show if the station broadcasts travel information.Since most stations do anyway, this feature by itself is of limitedvalue. The Traffic Announcement (TA) feature allows interruption of aCD or cassette tape when there is a travel report from the radiostation that is currently tuned-in. The radio will automatically switchfrom CD or tape to the radio for the duration of the travelannouncement. Commercial radio stations willbroadcast three tones or 'bleeps' before and after the travel bulletin,but BBC radio stations do not need this. These DTMF tones are used whenthe transmitter (where the RDS inserter physically is) is locatedremotely from the studio, and for reasons of cost or practicality thereis no control path from the studio to the transmitter to tell thetransmitter when to switch on the TA flag. The only link from studio totransmitter is the station audio itself. Inthese situations, "in-band signalling" is used. A unit at thetransmitter site listens out for the DTMF tones in order to switch theTA flag on and off. The DTMF tones are recorded on the traffic jinglesto make life easier for the presenter. For the TA feature to work underany circumstances, however, the function marked TA, TI, TP or 'Traffic'must be switched on. It is possible to search out only those stations broadcasting the Traffic Programme on some radios.
