If the display shows only some characters, it's because the thin ribbon cable has partially separated from the board it is affixed to. I just fixed mine using a soldering iron, and running it back and forth on the cable to re connect it. It requires a good bit of work, finesse, and electronics repair experience to fix it. If you don't care about the display, you can take out the screws on the back that the little arrows are pointing at. It takes a mid sized Phillips screw driver. Carefully separate it, and pivot the cover so the wires will not snag or get ripped out. Once that's done, look at the circuit board, since its right next to the battery compartment, the batteries could have leaked, and corroded the board. If this happened, it is not fixable. If this did not happen, check to see if the cables are clipped into their sockets. Press down on them gently. Then re assemble the radio, and turn it on.

The earphone jack connection produces sound in only one ear. Partially with drawing the jack produces sound in both ears. Clearly, the jack is not making a good connection once inside its 'port'.

This is usually the result of faulty earphones. Try replacing the earphones you are using with the ipod and it should work normally.
Good Luck!

Sangean Digital Radio DAB+, no output via speaker

Have a look at the soldering to the headphone jack, it might have come lose or the jack is faulty, thus cutting off the sound to the speaker.

Sangean PR-D3L - How do I change between 12 and 24

Archer, I have read the entire PR-3DL manual and there appears no mention of a 12/24 hr setting, unlike certain other Sangean radios. The instructions for setting the alarm do not mention 'a.m.' or 'p.m.' .

Apparently, the clock is a 24:XX:XX display only.

Digital Radio Digitor by Sangean PR-D3L The LCD display has slowly been failing and is now 95%failed. Is there a spare part or other magical solution available

I have fixed the display on a Sangean PR-D3L that had faded to less than 30%. It was a bit involved and required pulling the radio apart and desoldering a metal sheild off the back of the display board to reveal the "zebra strip" connector for the display. I used a bit of heat and pressure on the connector strip where it contacts the circuit board - presto 100% display. Don't know how long it will last tho'.

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.
