These radios have a "**** shell" design and the flexible cable has a tendency to break with many cycles of opening and closing. This can lead to "flakey" operation. A repair kit can be had and installed but for a price. The kit is about 25 dollars and labor would be around 25 to 75 dollars.

My Philips AJ3980 radio suddenly has no sound. Also, the band "MW" appears in the display and I'm unable to tune AM stations. The clock seems okay. Thanks for your help!


1. Press the RADIO button to switch on the radio.
- Radio touch screen controls appears throughout
radio operation
- The radio frequency and waveband appears in the
display for 10 seconds before reverting back to the
clock display.
2. Press the BAND button to select your waveband FM/AM.
3. Tune to your station manually or automatically
by using up / down.

Here is a figure to help find the control buttons:

FM frequecy increases/decreases too mugh pr. step


Hi, Your post/description "the frequency increases in steps of .2 Mhz or 200Khz" refers to the increment of frequency spacing between tuning steps and is largely dependent on the radio standards of the country/region the radio is intended to be used. Assuming no hardware fault to the radio, tuning steps may be adjusted by: 1. With the radio switched off, press the Step/Band button for about 2 seconds. This will display the current FM tuning step (200Khz as in your case); 2. With the radio switched off, press the Step/Band button for about 10 seconds. This will display FM and a blinking 50Khz with a single beep sound. By rotating the Tuning Control you can increase or decrease this value. 3. pressing the Step/Band button again will move you to the tuning increments of the AM band again adjustable via the Tuning Control. 4. pressing the Step/Band button again will save the setting and complete the process. Hope this be of some help. Good luck and kind regards.

Set the clock on a clarion cd player?


Setting the Clock
1) Press and hold in the BAND button [4] then press the DISP button [9] to toggle the display to the clock mode.

2) Press and hold in the BAND button [4] then press and hold in the DISP button [9] for at least 2 seconds.

3) Select left or right to adjust the time using the a-selector

~Adjusting minutes
Each time you select right >> using the a-selector [3], the minutes increment up by one digit (0 to 59).

~Adjusting hours
Each time you select left << using the a-selector [3], the hours increment up by one digit (1 to 12).
*The clock only displays time in a 12-hour format.
There is no way to toggle the clock to a 24-hour format.

4) Press the BAND button [4] to set the clock into memory. This also resets the seconds counter to zero.

Note:
*The clock can only be set by turning power on to the unit and switching to the clock display mode. You cannot set the clock when it is displayed with only the igntion on. If you drain or remove the car's battery, the clock must be reset. While setting the clock, if another button or operation is selected, the clock set mode is canceled.

Cd player works but not radio


No, it uses the same source.
Have you checked which band you are selecting? It has 3 FM bands, LW and MW, right?
It may not be a relay, but an untuned station.

To only way you can fix it is taking apart the Tom Tom, checking if the flat ribbon cable and connector to the screen are well in place and eventually replace the display ($80 on Ebay).
Unfortunately this will invalidate the guaranty, and you risk to damage your GPS if you are not a really experienced DIYer. Tom Tom offer one year full guaranty on all their receivers.
