Can't tune to any radio station

After a recent thunderstorm my receiver lost all radio stations. All AM/FM stations are scrambled with wierd numbers and I can't manually tune to any station. Could the tuner have been affected by lightning? What if any fix is possible.

    I received three e-mails with the same response. When will you be able to let me know if there is a reset button and also, if there is one, how to reset it?

    Also please check if there is any small(tiny) hole at the back of the unit.If you find the hole then take a toothpick and insert it into the hole for 20 seconds.I believe this a very old a model and it doesn't have a reset button.

This can be due to some blown capacitors.

    if u dont receive a particular station then it must be the fault with either some particular capacitors.

    else your variable capacitor which decides the ranges must have gone faulty.

    you can check inside

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jun 12, 2008

    it wont take much cost sir/madam.

    just a small component.

    u can replace them easily.

    and there are possibilities that tuner may also have got damaged.
    open the unit and check the terminal voltages to confirm that.

    don't forget to accept the solution if u go by it.

    thank you sir.


  • dewan nafees ahmed Jun 12, 2008

    more over as per my knowledge there is no reset switch for your model sir.

    sorry to say.

    only fix the capacitor replacement.

    don't forget to accept the solution if u go by it.

    thank you sir.

How do i set the fm radio stations in memerory


Once you have the station tuned simply press and hold the button you want to assign the station to. It will flash, blink or say station set when you have held it long enough. Only takes a 3 second hold.

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.

How do I preset the tuner for radio stations. I've never had a problem doing this with any other stereo. But what I think should work isn't!


Not very specific. Do you have the manual?

The following is from a VSX-03TXH manual. It ain't pretty but it may help.

I'm posting it in multiple parts due to space contraints.

Chapter 6:

Using the tuner

Listening to the radio

The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and

AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and

manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the

frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a

station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can

memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving

station presets below for more on how to do this.

1 Press the FM/AM button to select the tuner.

2 Use the FM/AM button to change the band (FM or

AM), if necessary.

Each press switches the band between FM and AM.

3 Tune to a station.

There are three ways to do this:

Automatic tuning

To search for stations in the currently selected band,

press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for about a second. The

receiver will start searching for the next station,

stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for

other stations.

Manual tuning

To change the frequency one step at a time, press

TUNE ?©/??.

High speed tuning

Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.

Release the button at the frequency you want.

Improving FM stereo sound

If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when

tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press

the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono

reception mode. This should improve the sound quality

and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.

Using Neural THX

This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to

achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.

• While listening to FM radio, press AUTO/DIRECT for
Neural THX listening.

RE: FISHER RS-909 I can find radio stations by switching from "CH" to "Freq" and then pressing "+" or "-" ... but how do I then pre-set the stations? Very frustrating! Thank you for any...


OK, I'm writing info here as I couldn't get response in chat session.
Once FM station got tuned, press memory/ store button, display will flash, press preset number like 1 or 2 or other to store that tuned frequency in that particular preset.
Let me know for further question.
Thanks.

Pioneer-vsx-9500s radio won't work with cable


You cannot plug cable from the wall into a receiver, you will blow the tuner card.  Use the supplied antenna or go to radio shack and ask them for an fm antenna.
