Some newer radios do not have the quality build that the old ones had. The switch over to cheaper labor countries have lessened the quality and lack of good parts have lead to newer designs but not always better. My old SONY ICF-7600, not the G or GR, has a great receiver on LW and MW but after replacing aging capacitors!

The antenna on my ICF-SW7600gr broke off. I want to solder on a new wire lead. should i only connect to the top solder point, or to all three where the old antenna plate rested?


There is only one antenna connection. That is the wire or pin in the middle of the coax connector where the old antenna was connected. Hook that to your new antenna, the other connectors are usually at ground potential and won't help a bit. Often a piece of wire the same length as the old antenna will work fine. Stretch it in the vertical position as was the old antenna.

13 years old Sony ICF-SW7600 not working


Sony radios of this era had notorious capacitor problems.... also several other brands were affected. These capacitors were underrated and the technology to make them was not at it's best back then. The cure is to replace the capacitors on the board with new electrolytics. About 28 of them need to be replaced but the big problem is to find someone to do this. the original capacitors are surface mount and must be removed and new radial lead caps put in their place, some are rather tough to get at and the new ones have to be placed carefully. My SONY ICF-SW7600 now works as new and maybe even better!
I have done this myself as I have skills working with surface mount capacitors. I offer my services to those who cannot find service for their radios. Please email me for details, I am not into making bucks on this, I just want to see these radios kept working and bringing enjoyment to their owners.
