Question about Sony NWZ-B103FBLK MP3 Player

1 Answer

No FM Radio Available

There is no icon for the FM radio option in the home menu, but the manual says it is there (it is not). I bought this Walkman in Mexico, but it came with a Spanish/English manual -- the English version being exactly the same as the US one. Also, the sony website stock images (USA and Mexico) show the same 3 icons as the home menu screen on my WALKMAN (no fm radio icon anywhere), but I can't find any options or clues anywhere else to start setting up the fm radio options. Why would they have eliminated this option (if they did?) Any suggestions for resolving this?
Thx

Hi fitx-64

Every where you site this model on the web, it has an inbuilt FM tuner... you not even having that option is really weird. I take it you have been through the manual to see what is what? :)

There is a firmware upgrade for it here you could do that first and see how you go.

If that does not fix it, I suggest you take it to a Sony service center. I am sure they willl exchange it for you.

FM channel set at 88.5, too noisy, need to change the channel to a quieter channel


Use the FM extender kit to improve the signal. You can change the channel by holding down the cassette icon to enter the menu, then going to FM options (I think it's under settings)

My roady xt does not have a fm select option on the menu


You need to have it in the AUTO base/cradle - AND - you cannot have anything plugged into the LINE OUT or AUX OUT jack, as it will disable the FM transmitter. Try unplugging the audio output, then you'll be able to select the FM transmitter again. I believe that they removed the option from the HOME cradle/dock all together because of regular AM/FM radio stations complaining to the FCC that the transmitters were too strong (in other words, they wanted to hurt satellite radio competition or slow it down as much as possible by forcing Sirius and XM go back and redesign their radios for a much weaker or NO FM transmitter).

In my settings there is no fm transmitter selection available


As far as I know, there is no transmitter in a Sirius Radio. I had an XM, and there was no selection for fm stations. They just figure you can tune the car radio to any fm station, in case you want to listen to fm. Hope this helps, but refer to your manual for details about what the unit can do.

No FM Frequency option


I had the same problem with all three of my Roady XTs. I posted a video with directions for solving the problem on YouTube:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGMWf0aUTjw

Basically, you just need to have the antenna unplugged when you power up, and push menu right away, then select. Not sure why, but it worked on all of my Roady XTs. On the oldest one I had to push menu more than once. Good luck!

XM Roady2 Built in FM Modulator not working


It's not in the menu selections because the Roady 2 does not have an internal FM transmitter. The Roady XT does though.
