Question about Yamaha RX-397 Receiver

1 Answer

RX-397 FM Station presets, both in Auto or Manual, DIFFICULT to control.

I am having great difficulty with the FM station presets. 1-8, A-E = 40. Great. But in "Auto" mode it saves stations that barely have signal, half way up the dial it's max'ed out. I've followed the manual for "Manually" presetting each station that I actually want saved and it's just not working as advertised. Still goes off on auto mode once the "memory' button is depressed for either 3 seconds or the 'more than 5 seconds'. Honestly, I can't tell what this thing is doing when I try to preset the stations. NOT very user friendly on this front. Owners manual a little weak here.

I need a set of instructions for programming a JVC remote control, RM-SRX7010J so that I can select several FM radio stations using the remote control. My stereo receiver is JVC RX-7010V. Thanks in...


Hi Will,


If you want to store preset station so that you can easily select your favorite FM station, instructions on how to do this are listed on the JVC RX-7010 User Guide (page 20-22). Remote control operation is also listed there. It is to long to write here.

Please download and save the Pdf file format of the user guide HERE.

Enter your email add and the confirmation number and then click "Download Now" to automatically begin the download. It is a safe website, I used it personally.

I just bought the RCA CD/DVD home theater system RTD206. I cant figure out how to change the radio channels. Also cant figure out how to change the cd disk tracks. Does this system have a remote. Or do...


The system does have a remote (at least it should come with one if purchased new), and you need it to control pretty much everything. Here's what the manual says about the radio tuner (you can find the whole manual here) :

Manual Tuning
1. Connect the FM aerial and the AM loop antenna at the back of the unit. Rotate the AM loop for
better reception.
2. Press TUNER to enter TUNER mode and toggle between FM and AM.
3. When the FM station broadcasts Stereo sound, ST is displayed.
4. Tune a station by pressing repeatedly the TUNER+/- buttons until the desired station is found.
Alternatively, you can press and hold the same buttons down for about one second to activate
the automatic search function. In this mode the player will automatically tune frequencies until
it finds a station.
5. Repeat step 4 to tune to another radio station.

Storing radio stations
The player can store up to 30 radio stations in its memory. You can enter every single radio station
yourself or the player can store all available radio stations automatically in ascending order.
Automatic preset programming
1. Press TUNER to enter the Tuner mode.
2. Press and hold TUNER down for 3 seconds to start automatic preset programming.
Note: A weak signal can affect the "Automatic preset programming" function's efficiency. Adjust the aerial for better
reception and a more efficient search.
3. Radio frequencies will be browsed and radio stations stored automaitcally. When all the available
radio stations are stored or all 30 memory locations are full, the auto preset programming
function will stop.

Manual preset
1. Tune to a radio station (see "Manual tuning" for details).
2. Press MEMORY once to enter flashing Preset Loaction number.
3. While the Preset Location number is still flashing, input your desired preset number (1-30) using
the numeric buttons or press the CH+/- buttons, then press MEMORY to store it.

Retrieving preset stations
1. Press TUNER to enter the Tuner mode.
2. Press CH+/- to search up or down for the preset stations or directly press the numeric buttons.

As you see, you really need that remote. The same is true for disc play. While there are front panel buttons for play/stop, disc skip, and drawer open/close, you don't have any other control without the remote. Without the remote control you'll find this system won't do too much, unfortunately. If you bought this new, check the packing material before you throw it away to make sure the remote's not still somewhere in the box. They often come tucked into slots on the foam inserts.

Also, when you hook the unit to a TV, it's just using the TV as a video display device. The TV has nothing to do with any of the system's other functions.

I hope you have luck locating the remote! Thanks for using Fixya.

Setting channels for am and fm on pioneer rx 570


Hi gbrokaw

Generally speaking, you select the station you wish to store, then depress and hold down the preset button you wish to store it to. After a few seconds, the screen will blink, and the will be station stored. On to the next one. Try this and see how you get on. If you have any problems, I am happy to help you help you sort it out. Cheers
