Hi. Sony radios of this era had notorious capacitor problems.... also several other brands were affected. These capacitors were underrated and the technology to make them was not at it's best back then. The cure is to replace the capacitors on the board with new electrolytics. About 28 of them need to be replaced but the big problem is to find someone to do this. the original capacitors are surface mount and must be removed and new radial lead caps put in their place, some are rather tough to get at and the new ones have to be placed carefully. My SONY ICF-SW7600 now works as new and maybe even better!

    I am sorry but it is the only solution. There is no reset button or special keys to be press for this radio.

I have a Sony ICF 2010 (for over 20 years) and when I turn it on, the only reception I get is on the FM frequencies (+ aircraft freqs). Thank you. Alex


Late answer on this.... There is a FET problem with older radios and this could be the problem. Static can "zap" the transistor making the radio deaf on receive in the AM modes.

ICF 2010, no sound suddenly


If the radio does not work with headphone then the external jack for audio may have broken loose from it's soldered points. Simple re solder may make the repair. Beyond that it would have to be diagnosed by a technician.

I have done this myself as I have skills working with surface mount capacitors. I offer my services to those who cannot find service for their radios. Please email me for details, I am not into making bucks on this, I just want to see these radios kept working and bringing enjoyment to their owners.
