Question about Sony ICF-2010 AM/FM/SW Radio

LCD display invisible on Sony ICF-2010

The LCD display of my ICF-2010 is blank, or so I thought, until I noticed that if I hold the radio horizontally at eye-level, I can just make out the numbers on the clock and frequency display. But when I sit the radio upright and look directly at the display it appears blank.
Is there a fix for this, or is the LCD display basically kaput? The radio dates from 1986.

    Found this elsewhere on the Internet and it worked: Clean Memory Battery contacts with fine sandpaper and put in new memory batteries. Display is much darker.

I found a posting that said this usually is a problem with weak memory batteries or a bad battery contacts. I replaced batteries and cleaned contacts and the problem was solved.

    Found your solution and it worked great for me. Now I'll go check the displays on the other 3 ICF-2010s that I own -- all probably have memory batteries that are beyond "shelf" life. Thanks again. Gordo

Buttons not working on Sony icf-cd7000


Hello
Unplug the unit and replug it after 5 minutes or so. Then Hold Down the CLOCK/DATE until a short beep sounds. If this beep sound cannot be heard, be sure that the internal circuit has some trouble, and has to be repaired. Normally, any other button get strucked, there will be no response with other buttons. OK.

LCD light will not come on


The old LED back light dims over time and can be replaced with newer and brighter LEDs. I have done this on several of these radios and it works wonders! Easy to do but if your not skilled then find a good repairman.
Now if your LCD display id hard to see then it may be a memory battery problem. First ting to do is replace the AA batteries, be sure to clean their contacts. Second, if that does not work the negative contact may not be making a good connection. That fix is a bit more complicated, needs to be done by a good technician. Send me your email and I possible can help out.

I have a Sony ICF 2010 (for over 20 years) and when I turn it on, the only reception I get is on the FM frequencies (+ aircraft freqs). Thank you. Alex


Late answer on this.... There is a FET problem with older radios and this could be the problem. Static can "zap" the transistor making the radio deaf on receive in the AM modes.

ICF 2010, no sound suddenly


If the radio does not work with headphone then the external jack for audio may have broken loose from it's soldered points. Simple re solder may make the repair. Beyond that it would have to be diagnosed by a technician.
