Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

I have a Grundig SSB/700 MEM radio that I picked up at a second-hand store very cheap. The a/c adaptor and batteries work. The display comes on and seems to work fine. The antenna tip is broken off. I can not get any sound at all, not even static. I tried the earphone jack and still nothing. I ran the search mode in FM, AM and SW and it will not pick up a sigle station. I do not have a operators booklet.

SOURCE: No am radio

You realize that the MW is the AM stations....I don't know
why they didn't just put AM on the band select...
Also I could not get MW (AM) on my set once and the
reason was that it was too close to my laptop...
It was interfering with the radio.....

SOURCE: AM reception

Hello,
If the internal antenna is broken that means the ferrite bar is broken,that does imply that the wiring around it is cut. If the two parts are not removed, the antenna may still be able to perform correctly (just as two magnets put end to end). You can try to put it in the vicinity of another radio to see if there is any resonance effect.
Hope it helps.

SOURCE: Grundig Satellit 700 World Receiver. AM bands are dead.

Ist Local Oscillator (PLL) stops working. It's desiged with bare minimum feedback to keep it's output reasonably clean. Removing (De-soldering) the screening box reduces losses, but it's still marginal. Something in the osc. circuit is temperature sensitive, so squirting it with freezer spray - or putting the set in the 'frig will get it going again. Have one like this, "Repaired" - been going for about 5 years and just quit again! If I get any better luck next time, I'll re-post this!

My Grundig S350 won't turn on. I have replaced the batteries and hit the reset button and still nothing. Please help.


Its Deluxe Version the S350 DL can use two types of batteries: D-size or AA. Inside the battery compartment there is a switch to select the size in use. If you use the AA sie batteries, they will not hold in their locations unless you lower a flap and secure them.
Have you tried to power the radio with the adaptor?

I have used my Grundig S350 radio almost daily, for the past 6-7 years. I went on vacation for 10 days. When I returned home, I turned on the power, lights light up, etc., but no sound...no matter how...


Hi
Its microcomputer chip may have hanged. Just make a reset ans see whether it helps you. It must help you, i"m sure. To reset it;

S350 incorporates with micro computer chip (the component that

controls how the radio operates). If the radio has been subjected to

abnormal environmental conditions, the micro computer chip may
hang up and the following symptoms may appear

The display shows nothing and the radio cannot be turned on by
pressing POWER & SLEEP button.

The display shows random characters or does not work properly

although the radio can receive stations normally.

In these cases, you might need to reset the radio. To reset the

S350, unplug the external adaptor (if one is being used) and

remove the batteries from the battery compartment. Insert a

pointed object, such as straightened paper clip, into the RESET hole

on the right, front side of the radio and gently press and release the

button inside the hole. Then plug in the AC adaptor or reinstall the
batteries
OK.

Cannot select USB or SSB.Displays LSB or LISB? Very poor reception


On the Satellit 750 you have a button marked SSB. If you have selected a shortwave band then you can press the SSB button. Pressing the button repeatedly will toggle between LSB and USB.

You will need to know the exact frequency and the broadcast time, and the side band. Turn the radio on. Select a frequency which you know carries SSB signal and wait. Those that broadcast on SSB are not radio stations, maybe ham radio operators.

You can also select a short wave band, press the SSB button once or twice to select the side band and launch the automatic tuning system. It will scan the meter band and stop for a few second when it receives a strong enough signal. If you are able to perceive a clear signal on LSB or USB then you found a broadcaster. Some radios just have SSB and you cannot choose the side.
Personally, when I buy a radio I always insist on SSB but I have never been lucky tuning in an SSB signal. I keep trying once in while.

My Grundig Satellit 700 Radio is not working on FM Band but is working well on AM and Shortwave Band. After pressing ON/OFF button and FM/RDS-AF button when we try to operate the FM Band of this radio...


As a side note, most AM/FM radios use a separate antenna for each band, thus why you can pick up AM but not FM. Check your mast antenna connections to make sure they are solid and not missing or loose.

Grundig Satellit 800 LCD display doesn't work correctly


If the radio uses memory batteries, try changing these with new alkalines. The microprocessor needs this power to drive the display.

PRESET RADIO STATIONS
1 press RADIO BAND. AUTO PRESET to select the band.
2 Hold down RADIO BAND > AUTO PRESET for 2 seconds until "AUTO"flashes in the display
3 Press DSPL/ENT/MEM. The stations are stored in the memory from the lower frequencies to the higher ones.

if a station can not be preset automatically.
you need to preset a station manually.
1 press RADIO BAND. AUTO PRESET to select the band.
2 tune int he station you want.
3 hold down DSPL/ENT/MEM. for 2 seconds until the preset number flashes in the display.
4 press PRESET + or - until the preset number you watn for the station flashes in the display.

Can't pick up any stations


Some Grundig models have a history of poor front end design where just a bit of static electricity will wipe out tuning. Serious flaw.
