Question about Philips AJ3980 Clock Radio

1 Answer

Philips Aj3980 I used some glass cleaner to clean the screen and some of the fluid seeped into the bottom edge of the screen. There must be an electronic panel where the fluid has touched and now I can't get the radio to change channels. Any ideas please? How do I remove the casing to get to the panel to see if I can clean it up?

Diismentling of PHILIPS az-1880

Remove the ten screws at the bottom. There are three hidden screws at the back just above ,one is left of antenna , another is at the middle back just half inch from top and the last is at the other end. These screws are covered with round plastic so this plastic cover needs to be remove first by either drill or small flat screw then you can remove the remaining three screws to open the the unit.

Says all cd's r unreadable

Hi, when a cd inserted inside a cd player and it says unreadable, it means that the lens of the player is weak and can't play the cd inserted.

You can use a lens cleaner to clean it, if when you use the lens cleaner and it does not work, that means the cd lens is bad and it needs to be replaced.

Take care.

Why does the CD function on my Bose Wave Radio/CD sometimes not work even though the CD is spinning?

Hi, when the lens of the CD player is weak, it can keep on spinning and not play. what you will need to do is to get a lens cleaner and clean the lens(instructions are on the lens cleaner.

If after cleaning and it still did not work, that means the lens is to weak to perform well. It will need to be changed to a new lens.

Take care.

Go to an electronics store and buy a can of spray contact cleaner. Remove the 3 top screws on the back cover. You will see the volume control on the lower left. spray the control with a few squirts of the cleaner, and rotate it several time to distribute the cleaner in the control. Spray again if necessary. This should solve your problem.

I simply cleaned my red switch by spraying it with tuner cleaner and the problem went away (it will return in a few years and cleaning it will correct it again). The switch can only be cleaned with the radio open. A can of tuner clean/lub with a small straw will be needed.
