    Does this model have fuses?

  • Bill Narey Mar 24, 2008

    I got the problem fixed. I'm not that keen on this kind of radio. I talked to a guy that said to turn the AGC / MGC knob to the AGC until you hear the click. It worked. I have AM/SW/FM now.

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!

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.

If the radio uses memory batteries, try changing these with new alkalines. The microprocessor needs this power to drive the display.
