Question about Freeplay Energy BayGen AM/FM/SW Radio
Solution #2 is correct. My Baygen Freeplay radio was running fast and mine had a broken belt. I could not find a belt on eBay. After hours of searching the internet, I fond a replacement belt at http://www.kenselectronics.com/lists/belts.htm I have the older large Baygen Freeplay radio without solar power and this is the belt that fit my radio... AV-SBS9.5 Replaces SBX9.5 & 1407-36 & SCX9.5 square 9.5 x .047" belt, Baygen Freeplay. Just search the website above... they also have a second size Baygen belt that might fit the newer Baygen Freeplay radios???

After you take the two halves of the case apart there is a blue wire that comes from the 3v input jack on the back half of the case and goes to the radio circuit board near the top corner. The solder joint where the wire is soldered breaks easily. With this wire broken the generator will run to fast because there is very little load. The radio will still play if you slow the generator with your hand as it is playing back. If you resolder this wire the radio will work and the generator will run at the proper speed. This takes only a moment or two.
Please don't take the generator assembly apart, there is nothing wrong with it and the spring could come loose and hurt someone.

One of 2 things has happened: the drive belt has snapped or, a wire has come loose from the radio and now the generator has no load on it which will make it run fast and not play.
You will have to open the case and check. the belt can be bought on ebay (search for 'baygen belt') or re solder the loose wire.
