    Hi,
    I can't find in Italy this potentiometer.
    Can you send me an electric drawing of the pin to replace it with a similar ? Is it a single potentiometer or double? Why it has seven pins ? Simple potentiometer, normally, has 3 pins.
    Listening a FM station, I heard a 1000 Hz noise, it depends by the potentiometer, too?

    on line, too. In italy I can't find it.
    May I replace with a normal potentiometer?

This can be replaced by a generic control and should be available from any electronics parts supplier. There are two main types of these that differ only in the way they are mounted. When you look for the replacement, you will need to specify the direction of the pins. In other words, are the pins inline with the main shaft or are they at a right angle. Since you are in Italy, I don't know any distributors there, but this should be a common enough part to be found just about anywhere. The indication A20K indicates that this is an Audio Taper valued at 20K which is 20,000 ohms.

Good luck.

    The pot that you have is a double or stereo pot. There is an extra ground pin. Try searching for Alpha as that is a large manufacturer of these components. These should be readily available from any mail-order electronics house.

Tivoli PAL volume problems


I posted this tip elsewhere but the FixYa site is, shall we say, challenging.<br /> After years of use my Tivoli PAL started having volume problems. The audio began popping, volume changed erratically, static, booming, almost feedback sounds.<br /> In my case, and others as well, I've gleaned, the problem was the volume potentiometer. Apparently it oxidizes over time and the poor electrical contact is the reason for the erractic audio.<br /> I'm not an electrical repair kind of guy, so this isn't pretty.<br /> The volume and frequency controllers are secured to the knobs with metal collars. I pried the collars loose and got the horizontal board off, I sprayed Stabilant 22 into the volume pot. There are other electrical contact cleaners as well.<br /> Put it all back together. Let the flud dry. Good as new.<br /> Good luck.

I want to buy a battery charger. Where do I purchase?


Hello
The external power adapter for your device is for [6VDC - 1 Ampere]. You can use any adapter with this capacity to charge the battery inside the your Philips Da1000. Brand is not matter, but the voltage and current is. Just check the DC socket polarity. It is the main thing that ahs to be checked. Some sets will have outer (+ve), and some others have (Outer (--ve). This will be marked at the DC in terminal of your radio. It is best to be the set in hand, when you go to buy a new one. This adapter can be bought from most of the electronic spare parts selling shops at your town. Philips has designated as [6V direct current, positive pole to current pin] as pin confuguration for the AC adapter. If so outer ring connection will be (--ve). Anyway, make sure about it before buying a new one. OK.

Tivoli model Satellite will not turn on. Had intermittant power issues. Moved the radio and it will no longer power on


The power control problem is easy to fix.

It can as simple as a fuse (I'm sure you check it already) or a switch that is piggy back on the volume control.

Radio Shack has a similar one HERE

Disconnect the AC outlet and open the main Tivoli unit.

Look at the back side of the volume switch and you will see a power switch piggy back onto the volume control.

You can bypass it or get the correct value Potentiometer + SPST switch.

Use an ohm meter to meter the both end of the potentiometer and if it's 10,000 ohm or 10k then just go to Radio Shack and ask for
10K-Ohm Audio Control Potentiometer with SPST Switch Model: 271-215 | Catalog #: 271-215

It's a direct replacement.

If the ohm read is other then 10K then you will need to order it for an electronic supply house.


Tivoli makes great radio.....if you want to sell it I want the first dip.

Installing a Harmon Kardon on a 03 Ultra


The 23 pin main connector is a direct plug in from the 03 bike to the HK unit. The only issue would be if the original 03 was using the accessory connector as well. The accessory connector on the 03 is another 23 pin. It's a 35 pin on the HK. For more info, or to discuss this further, contact Iron Cross Audio (www.ironcrossaudio.com)

No alpha numerics


Hi David, I can't seem to find that this is a common problem (at least not yet). Hopefully the unit is still under some sort of warranty. I might suggest looking for a model hdt-1X that has the .4 version of firmware. Apparently with the .3 version the display is never turned off (even when the unit is in the "off" mode). With the .4 version you can dim the display and it will turn off when the unit is in standby mode. For other differences see this link: http://www.ham-radio.com/k6sti/hdt-1x.htm Sorry I don't have any better solution for you at this time but I will keep a watch out and post any further findings. Happy Trails ...... Jack
