I have a Technika DAB-206 Digital Radio approx 2 years old. About a month ago it developed a constasnt low noise hum when turned of. I left unplugged for approx two days and when I plugged it back in the hum had gone. This lasted approx 2 weeks and it has now started again. Anyone got any thoughts please.

You have leaky filter capacitors in this radio, this is a common fault and these are soldered into a rinted circuit board. Good luck

I'd second that. Technika stuff is OK for the price but the power supplies are not that well built and I've had to repair a few soldering faults on my DAB radio / CD.

You are experiencing a backlight failure. A repair shop can repair the item (grain of wheat lamp).

Once the backlight is repaired, you will see the characters on your screen.

Have bought a Technika DAB 109 CRF radio and no instructions. 1. how do I tune it and SAVE to presets 2. How do I set the alarm? Thank you


To set alarm mode :- press Alarm 1 or 2 briefly to swtich between choices of Alarm On-Beep / DAB / FM / Off, keep pressing this alarm button until you get to the mode you want then stop pressing and leave to settle.
To set time: Press and HOLD Alarm 1 or 2 to change time. Minutes will flash first, use dial to change numbers, when you've got to the number you want press jog/select to change hour, use dial to change hour number. If you just leave it alone once you've reached the hour you want it will set where you left it, but...
If you want to specify preset channel/volume/beep tone etc keep pressing jog/preset after setting hour and use dial to set your preferences.

How to preset favourite dab stations on matsui dr100 i have no instructions


This budget radio from Matsui allows you to enjoy the wide range of benefits of DAB digital radio for a very affordable price. The R100 is powered from the mains and features stereo speakers to allow you to really enjoy the clarity of digital radio.
Digital radio offers more station choice in more places, meaning that digital radio has something for everyone. DAB even has easy tuning, therefore you no longer have to scroll though numbers to find the exact frequency and you no longer have to remember the frequency numbers as with DAB you scroll through station names.


hope this may help;

Ferguson FRG-R121D digital radio doesn't work. Only works on fm stations and then very poorly. Takes a long time to switch on with continuous clicking noise.


Hi,
I had the same problem and solved it. Mine took about 10mins to turn on (constant buzzing and beating before this). 
The problem is the 1000uf and the 220uf capacitors on one of the circuit boards near the front of the device. I replaced these with new ones and problem sorted.
So if you know what your doing, take it apart and solder in some new caps. If not...maybe get a new one!
