    Thanks,

    The switches are buried pretty deep in the unit and i am not comfortable tearing it apart. I will take to a repair shop.

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.

I have a Tivoli Music System radio/CD player. When it is moved to another room and plugged in at the new location, it won't run! The screen lights up a little, but has to sit for 30-40 minutes bef


The Tivoli Music System must be left without power for a minute (60 seconds or more) anytime it is unplugged, before being plugged in again. If you observe this little rule when changing rooms, it should turn on and be usable immediately (after ensuring it has been at least a minute since it was last connected to power.)

My Tivoli Model One makes a loud screech/buzz noise


I had the same problem and was able to repair it quite easily. Only thing needed is some basic soldering skills.

Problem description:

  • Suddenly a quite loud and disturbing (scratch/screech/buzz) noise appears.
  • Sometimes the noise is gone but it reappears sooner or later.
  • Changing volume or radio band / input (am, fm, aux) does not affect the noise (even on volume turned down all the way).
  • The signal coming out of the Headphones / Rec Out plug is not affected.

Cause:

  • Cold solder joints

Solution:

  • Unplug from mains
  • Remove back panel (the two black screws next to the plugs in the center). The back panel sticks quite firmly, so it might help to remove the front panel first (the 4 screws in the corners) and carefully press out the back panel from the inside. (The other two (silver) screws are used to attach the transformer to the back panel) and need not to be loosened.)
  • On the circuit board at the back panel locate the plug that goes to the speaker (is says "J2"). Check the solder joints. In my case, looking closely, I could see that they're not good anymore.
  • Renew the joints by heating them up and applying some fresh soldering tin. I also renewd the joint from the wire bridge next to the plug. Just check the other solder joints on the board.

In my case afterwards the problem was gone and the device is working properly again.

Tivoli Model One Radio Humming only, no reception


The fuse would cause a total absence of power. Your problem is likely a blown filter capacitor in the power supply. Unless you have electrical/electronic skills, the radio will require professional repair.

Tivoli Model one radio - volume control does not go to quiet. I like to listen at night but volume does not lessen past a certain point which is too loud.


I noticed the same problem after I had moved. Hadn't had it before. The solution was easy in my case. (It took some time to accidentally figure it out though). I flipped the power cable around 180 degrees / upside down and re-connected. After this the volume worked as before. This was the model with European power plug.

Tivoli Radio,


Does your radio have a sleep button or option? If so, check to make sure that you did not set it on accident or with out knowing. Or if it has batteries, check them to make sure they aren't dead or mixed with old or new.
