New sony hifi system with dab radio model cmt-spz90db

Dab auto scan shows 'complete' on display but no reception on any channel. moving aerial gives little improvement. is a powered aerial the answer? if so which one and from where? moving the unit somewhere else in the room is not a practical option.

Have emailed this query to Sony ang got no reply.

    Exacty the same problem, is this a problem with the unit?l

    Exactly the same problem. I live in very strong DAB reception area but cannot even get the local Capital FM station on digital. Portable DAB radio in my kitchen picks up all stations no bother. Purchased a powered amplified aerial and managed to attach it the aerial supplied but this makes little difference. Have today emailed Sony but don't hold out much hope.

    Is there a reset process I can go through? I've already tried replacing the aerial.

2. Turn and press the Select dial to choose ‘Audio Setting’.
3. Select between ‘Stereo Allowed’ or ‘Forced Mono’.

I am trying to re tune to my local radio station radio Merseyside on dab but it says station not available or goes to another station ?


Have you checked the frequency of that Station?
Also check your aerial.

I have also found this:
Listeners to DAB digital radio in the Merseyside area will need to retune on Wednesday 20th April following a frequency change that will affect local radio stations.

The local DAB multiplex carrying BBC Merseyside, Radio City 1-3 and Capital Liverpool among others will be moving to a new frequency in order to allow better reception over a wider area. The current frequency will be turned off late on Tuesday 19th April. The new frequency will go live from 6am on Wednesday 20th April, after which listeners will need to rescan their DAB radios in order to continue listening.

Can not get DAB radio too work on my Vita audio but FM radio works fine


This may be because you live in an area where DAB reception is currently poor, but to check this, please use our postcode checker (see 'check your DAB coverage' panel on the right) to see which DAB stations you should be able to receive. If reception for your area appears to be good, then it may be down to local conditions or building materials. Buildings constructed from steel and reflective glass are not good for radios with internal aerials as they reflect and greatly reduce the strength of signal. In such a case an external aerial will greatly improve reception, but most importantly, if you are using the supplied telescopic aerial, you should ensure that it is properly fitted and fully extended upright.
Secondly, when our products are first powered up from new, they automatically scan the DAB network to see which services are available. During this process it is important that the radio is not touched and that the aerial has been correctly fitted and extended as instructed. If this has not been done then it is likely that not all stations will be detected and only the strong ones displayed. To correct this a new AutoScan/AutoTune or System Reset should be performed as instructed elsewhere in our Q&A's.

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.

I recently moved my Legato Pure radio, now I have trouble tuning in the DAB radio and the display struggles to set the clock often flashing with a message saying it is wating for time to set. When it does...


Clearly, the DAB signal strength is poorer in the new radio position. Try moving it, even a foot or two can make a difference. Better still, use a roof aerial.
The display can be changed, even in standby mode - press the Display button to see the 3 options.
