Question about Tivoli Kloss Model One AM/FM Radio

Open Question

I have a tivoli model 1. Over the time I have had (7 years), it has become more difficult to tune in to a station. Reception is fine when I do finally, after much fine tuning, get the desired station. In other words, as I am turning dial, there is extreme static, then the area wherein the station is seems to be miniscule, so I must go back and forth and hope to land on station... Hope this makes sense. My sense is that the tuning mechanism is dirty and must be cleaned, but I have no idea really. Ideas? Thank you, Erik Otsea

The fuse would cause a total absence of power. Your problem is likely a blown filter capacitor in the power supply. Unless you have electrical/electronic skills, the radio will require professional repair.

hi,
There is a Gang capacitor behind the tunning knobe of your radio. If this gang capacitor is faulty it will make difficult to tune the station accuratly and also will make static when rotating the tuning knobe. You have to replace the Gang capacitor. To see the gang capacitor you have to oppen the radio. It will look like one the picture.

Variable condensator


My first solution was to clean the plates of the variable capacitors inside the radio, with isopropyl alcohol.
After that, for some time, let me listen and tune enough well.
But was an illusion: after some weeks the capacitor still add noise during the tuning. My disappoint about this radio is very high, as its price. The choice of this kind of variable capacitor is very big design mistake.

CANT GET AM ON MY RADIO. HELP!


AM reception depends on orientation of the radio. Take the radio from its handle (top side up) and rotate it until you find the best signal. If it has Automatic Tuning, take the radio outside, find the best direction and initiate the ATS. Once the stations are recorded in memory, tune to one radio and listen. If that reception is poor rotate the radio without changing the frequency on the dial.

I found in some cases that the tuning capacitor collects small particles of dust causing snaps, pops, and drop outs. One solution is get some electronic cleaning spray from radio shack or service shop. now open the back of the radio, look for square plastic box it is transparent and you will see metal plates with small screws. On the top you will see small round holes in the plastic, attach the supplied straw and spray inside two good blasts should do it. rotate the tuning several times back and forth this cleans the plates, until spray dries the station will be on wrong frequency until dries

Can't seem to tune many stations at all. Also once a station is tunned it "slips".


The antenna works with the power cord. Try extending the length of its power cord with an extension cord.
Position of the radio in the room, the furniture in the room and your position in relation to the radio all affect its reception.
If there is a place to connect an external antenna, this will be helpful. Check with Radio shack and best buy for a FM loop antenna. Usually the wire is flat.
An inexpensive antenna for FM only is also a cheap alternative

Hitachi ft 5500 tuner, tuner pre set problem


Hi,
I bought an FT-5500 in 1983 that I haven't used for ten years but I still have the manual which states the following re pre-sets:

1. Tune into the station to be memorised with the tuning key.

2. When the memory write key is depressed the memory write key indicator lights continuously for about 5 seconds after the FCCS operation with FM reception and immediately with AM reception. One of the 10 preset keys is depressed for memorising the station while the indicator is lit. When the key is depressed the indicator goes off, the memorizing operation is completed and the next time you want ot listen to the station it can be recalled by depressing the corresponding preset key.
If the preset key is depressed during this interval and the FCCS data & broadcassting station are memorised the indicator goes off.

There is more but I think this should be enough to get you going.

Cheers
Graham
