Question about Sharper Image AM/FM Shower Companion Radio with Aluminum Cone Stereo Speakers - Gray and Blue (SI695... Boombox

Open Question

I have an SI-538 shower companion cd player/fm radio. It works with the adapter plugged in, but it won't run on batteries all of a sudden, even if they are brand new and the correct voltage. What could be wrong? Can I connect the adapter to the unit and still play it in the shower (I think the answer to that is "no.")

SOURCE: Cant get it to power up

I had exactly the same problem. Here is how I resolved it. 1. There is a reset button inside the battery compartment, in the center, between the C cells. Try pushing it with a paper clip or similar item. 2. If that doesn't work, replace the C cells. 3. If that doesn't work, try replacing the lithium backup battery. It is located between the C cells, in a compartment with an arrow. 4. I finally did all three at the same time, replacing the C cells, lithium battery, and resetting the system. The radio has worked fine for two days now. Good luck.

Do not turn the radio on. Then depress the "mode" button and yo will see all the questions, including time, date, etc. to respond to. Either channel + or - or Tuning + or - (I don;t recall which), will get you the numbers you need, pressing "mode" again will get you to the next module or out entirely.

Your CD may not be music CD. Some car radio doesn't accept MP3 or WMV files. Change it to a good radio such as JVC car radio.

The remote for my radio/cd player won't work any longAny suggestions? The model is: jWIN JXCD3250 Classic Style CD/AM/FM


Remove the batteries, clean the battery terminals with rubbing alcohol and Q-Tips and replace the batteries with new ones, if no! I would suggest you have someone look at it, usually find bad solder connections that need touch up.

Check the battery terminals for corrosion, and if possible spray the terminals with some switch/contact cleaner spray... the other problem maybe a bad solder connection on the adaptor socket, not allowing connection from the batteries to the unit.

Your best bet on that one is to go to a place that sells car audio systems or even some autoparts retailers have them,and get the proper adapter harness already made up. A few more dollars but, a whole lot less headaches.

FM tuner?


Separate product - listening to mp3's through your car radio is the most complicated and most expensive option; cheapest is a casette adapter if your car has a casette player, or a cd adapter for cd player - one end will plug into headphone jack of Sansa player. Best Buy has the widest selection of adapters. I would get the type of adapter that plugs into the headset - wired. Wireless adapters are "neat," but unreliable (and expensive).
