Question about Grundig Satellit 800 AM/FM/SW Radio

2 Answers

Can't get AM and SW, FM is fine. Nothing but Humming on AM/FM

I had the radio worked on 3 times for the same thing. It works for about an hour and then no AM, just humming. I tried unplugging it for a time, but still the same.

    with my unit, this problem is more likely to occur if the whip antenna is pulled all the way out. so i push it in a few inches, and i have less trouble.


    why that works, i have no idea.

Nothing but static on all bands


There may be interferences from electrical appliances fridges, TV. Move the radio to some other place. For AM rotate the radio to get the best signal. For FM and SW deploy the telescopic antenna. For SW you may use an external antenna. For SW, to tune in on a station you need to know the broadcast time and the frequency.

Hi,

Offhand, can you pls try and do a reset. This model don't have a reset button, but you can try removing the batteries for say an hour or so. The idea is to reset the microprocessor if the problem is software/firmware. Preset/memory would be erased as well as any personalized settings if you do this. But the unit will be back to factory default.

If the reset doesn't work, then your particular version/model has a slight offset resulting to the "humming sound". This is a known problem and many in the "ham" world have written corrective procedures which would require an insulated tuning/alignment screwdriver or at the very least a jewellers screwdriver and doing a bit of alignment by "ear"

If you are adventurous to give this a try, pls post back. Otherwise your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified ham radio technician.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How do set default AM & FM stations? Every time I turn on the radio I have select the station I want.


When you turn on the radio or select a wave band the display shows the last frequency you tuned in. That gives you 3 frequencies: One for the AM nd, one for the FM band (and maybe 3 for SW.
That does not look like much but there is nothing you can do about it. Sorry. It does not have Autamatic Tuning System, nor memory locations to store favorites stations. The portable Grundig/Eton such as the G5, G3, G8 have a plethora of memory locations and ATS.

My ICF-SW77 quit picking up on AM as well as FM. Then all of a sudden every thing works well for some time. Worked well all night, but this morning a tried to tune a new station and now again no pick up on...


Possible poor contacts in radio, as they age this happens. Could be one or more bad capacitors, same age problem. I do repairs on these radios, email me on this .... Rod ( poikaa@yahoo.com )

My SonyICF-2010 works just fine when using the power adapter. However when I use battery power nothing happens. Please help. I love my old shortwave radio. Thanks.


This problem can be caused by a loose external power connector. This will require disassembly of the case and some soldering. it is possible that the battery terminals are corroded if any batteries have leaked.

I have a Grundig Satellit 500 "Radio Boy"


If you sent it in 3 times, then I would suggest getting a new one if you know for sure that other's work in that area. If other's don't work, then then you have some type of interception between the radio waves and your radio. There is nothing I can do about that, and probably nothing you can do.

Otherwise, you should get a new radio.

Good luck!

Hello,
If it can fixed at a reasonable price, it might be better to try to have it repaired.
