Unfortunately, this is the most common problem with this FANTASTIC receiver. The SW100 is without a doubt the coolest little radio on the planet.
I use a rubber band. Inelegant, but effective.

How do I set the. Time

With the radio off, press and hold the ENTER (time set) Key DOWN. On the right side, there are 4 buttons with arrows on them. The inside ones set the timezone that you are in, the outside two will set the time. I just checked this on my ICF-SW100 and it works for me.

Considering a 9VDC battery keeps the clock alive when power is disconnected, I would guess the clock time is independent of line current frequency. Does anyone actually use motorized clock works anymore?

When I tune in to a station in the radio (Sony ICF-SW7600) plays for 5 minutes then the volume disappears. The display still shows that the radio is tuned to the station but there is no sound

Hi, I have a suggestion that I hope helps here.
Let me give you some theory to think with.
Alkaline batteries do not act like conventional batteries do. When they are starting to fail the initially
give you high voltage but the power goes down rapidly. In other words, the voltage spikes and dies.
If you have mixed different batteries which are worn un-uniformly, or mixed battery types. i.e. Alkaline with non-alkaline then you could have strange characteristic in your radio. In your radio, I would test with a fresh set of batteries.
If you have the AC power adapter for your radio, I would try that as well, to see if the same thing occurs.
If it is not the battery issue, then it is the circuit board inside the radio. The parts on these circuit board were designed to be inserted with machines and are often too small to be put in by conventional repair technicians. Sony will have the components to repair if necessary.
Let me know how this goes for you.
Hope I've helped
Best Regards,

Just need a replacement telescopic aerial for my ICF SW100. Thanks!

There are many types available in the market - now being scare - but you can suit one with the same mount and size.
Some of the earlier models of cordless telephones have antennaes that can suit yourr requirement. Also check for old model radios to swap if you find there are no choices in the market.
If the old one is damaged or broken then you can mend it with mild gas welding.

My sony world radio icf-sw100 wont turn on and i just put new batteries in it

Chances are the metalic "dome" under each button in question has rotated slightly out of position. This happened with the Sync button on my post-1997 SW100. Sunddenly no Sync function and nothing about Sync on the display. The problem is easily remedied if you're into radios. literally. (A friend fixed mine.) I know several individuals who might be willing to repair your unit. E-mail me for names? paul-diehl[at character]


Whatever your do, DO NOT SEND YOUR UNIT TO THE SONY REPAIR CENTER IN LAREDO. I sent mine in for the Sync repair and had it returned unrepaired, with "corrosion" given as the reason. I then had an electrical engineer take a look and he correctly diagnosed the problem in 90 seconds. Took him another 30 minutes to complete the repair, which required no new parts or soldering. By the way, he found NO CORROSON WHATSOEVER anywhere in the receiver. And by the way number two, SONY LAREDO returned my receiver with major dmagage to the chassis. After three frustrating months, I was finally able to get LAREDO to replace the part of chassis they'd broken. (They 'd counted on me not taking before and after photos.) Totally incompetent, totally unresponsive, totally dishonest (they said they'd ordered a new circuit board from Japan when they hadn't), just north of outright fraud. AVOID LAREDO AT ALL COSTS.
