Question about Audio Players & Recorders

I have a 3 band

Dear Audio expert(s)at FixYa, I have a 3 band Radio It's a PR -D3l It's sold and branded as a digitor by sangean and I bought mine through ****-Smith Electronics in Australia a few years ago. It has FM 87.5-108 MhZ, MW 522 -1710kHz and LW 144-279 kHz. I've been away for a short trip, returned to find the detail readout has changed. It's now displaying a changed FM range now 76.0 up to 108mH, BUT it processes no signal below about 100MhZ. Similarly the LW option doesn't appear at all and worst of all the MW range now cuts of at 1620, it no longer offers frequencies above this. Trying to find a web site for this model (not listed on www.singeing.com). This appears to be a software problem in the tuning chip as it works ok on those frequencies it now chooses to receive, but with those weird changes neither ordered nor wanted. Please assist.

    Thank you Ginko

    I have already disconnected both sources of power, but it does not reset to manufacturer's specifications.So what else might I try?

    Have tried removing all sources of power to "reset" to original specifications. No luck.

Use a paper clip or something similar to press the little reset button that should be located on the bottom of the radio. This will reset the microporcessor and get the radio working again.

The Digitor is the same as the PR-D3L from Sangean and the manual can be found here: http://www.sangean.nl/English/Products/pict.php?type=manual&file=dr_PR-D3_manual.pdf

Hi mark774

First trick is to power it right down, remove batteries, to get a reset

If it is still faulty, then it will need some service work done. It may be also a synthesiser fault, but either way, **** Smith do have a repair service. They are probably the best to provide service on the product. I would call them tomorrow first and enquire about repairs.

Just "insert" another station into the spot.

If your new TV has a digital audio output, your old JVC receiver probably does not have a corresponding digital input. One or the other has to be changed. Look for an EXTERNAL AUDIO output with RCA connectors on the rear of the TV.

HI...This is Bhushan here, It is nice to see that Fixya is reaching out to people to solve any electronic gadget related problems. I would be obliged if you could solve my problem too. A friend of mine...


Before you dive off into electronics, first set it on a channel and throw a cover over the front of it to cover up the infrared receiver input. It may be something in the room transmitting spurious signals.

Sangean Digital Radio DAB+, no output via speaker


Have a look at the soldering to the headphone jack, it might have come lose or the jack is faulty, thus cutting off the sound to the speaker.

Digital Radio Digitor by Sangean PR-D3L The LCD display has slowly been failing and is now 95%failed. Is there a spare part or other magical solution available


I have fixed the display on a Sangean PR-D3L that had faded to less than 30%. It was a bit involved and required pulling the radio apart and desoldering a metal sheild off the back of the display board to reveal the "zebra strip" connector for the display. I used a bit of heat and pressure on the connector strip where it contacts the circuit board - presto 100% display. Don't know how long it will last tho'.
