Your walkman uses a lot of power try using batteries that have higher power so you dont need to change it often.
use rechargeable batts so u dont keep buying.

How do I reset my radio for a 2007 Ford fusion?


Remove both battery cables from your car battery for about 30 minutes. This should reset your radio to the factory settings.

When on FM tuner, stereo stops playing after a few minutes


Right then sounds like the connection from the aerial lead into the receiver - check out the socket where the aerial plugs into!

Is it loose at all or could there be a bad connection inside the unit.
Get the cover OFF and investigate yourself before you rush down to that very friendly repair man along the street.

My Sony radio XDR-S55DAB has completely stopped working. Initially all that showed on the display unit was the symbol for a dead battery but this also appeared when it was mains connected. I have pressed...


I have noticed exactly the same issue with my Sony XDR-S55DAB

Even if it has batteries installed but only working off mains electricity, after several months it will not start when the power button is pressed and I have to replace the batteries.

The radio will work again if you just replace the batteries with fresh ones

Try this next time the batteries go flat; disconnect the radio from the mains, replace the batteries with fresh ones, and leave for a couple of minutes (you do not have to switch on!).

You can remove the batteries if you like then reconnect the mains cable and press ON

If your radio behaves exactly the same as mine, it will spring into life so how come?

In the "olden days" ie pre-2000, small portable radios often had a physical switch which connected and disconnected the power supply be it battery or mains.

Nowadays, many radios don't have a "proper" switch, but a "function" button - press it on, and the radio operates, press it again and the radio stops - to enable this, a very small amount of charge is required to keep the central "brain" alive in order to notice this, and in the case of the Sony XDR-S55DAB, this only seems to be supplied by the battery, not the mains adapter.

My advice is simply keep a spare set of batteries handy and replace them whenever your radio wont turn on. Using the mains adapter allows the batteries to lastfar longer than using the batteries on their own.

It is completely counter-intuitive that a "battery/mains" radio needs batteries to work off the mains, but this is the only design fault can find in an otherwise excellent radio.

Does the display show "tuned" or "FM Stereo"? This would normally indicate a good reception. The tuner has a signal level threshold and if the signal gets to week, the receiver mutes to prevent noise in the speakers. Swithing to mono make reception less intolerant. Does the problem also occur, when you switch to mono?

Can't Get A Radio Signal When I Connect A Cox Cable


Hi...
Some cable companies dont put the FM band on cable and some others put an FM trap (which kills the FM band) in line with the cable.
One of those is your problem.
You'll need to buy a FM antenna
