Question about Sony Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Have a boom box type radio (model 25-H10CP or 2S-HIOCP) that has worked normally for about 16 months. In the last week or so it has developed a problem that has become rapidly fatal: It does'nt work in battery power. It works fine with the AC adapter at both room temperature or at sub freezing. Symptoms, when on battery power, are as follow: When cold the display says BATTERY ERROR. When warm the display will come on momentarily then go blank. Banging on the radio,under either condition, has no effect. Batteries have been replaced with new. Audio was fine up until failure. No schematics or IPB. Help please.

The jack for the a/c adapter coud be slightly sprung, and so when the plug is removed, it doesn't quite make contact for the battery feed. Or, there could be some oxidation on the termina legs of the adapter. You can first try to spray some electrical contact cleaner in it, then work the jack in and out, and see if that gets it working. Otherwise, you will have to disassemble the unit and try to see if you have a broken power wire or solder trace going to the jack. Sometimes they're wired in, but they usually have legs soldered to a printed circuit board. Check the solder joints carefully to make sure they're not cracked or cold-soldered (usually a slightly cloudy look, instead of shiny).
Resolder it, if needed.
Chances are it's a bad jack or solder connection.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

There are a couple of things that come to mind, poor solder connections on the main board, or the audio output ic has a thermal related issue causing it to break down under load, a tricky problem to prove.

Leupold VX II 3x9x50mm scope on a rem. 270. One year old. Worked fine last year. Sighted in last week at range. Windage was dead on. Wanted to move up 1 inch in hieght at 25 yards. Tried to adjust hieght...


16 clicks is about 4" at 100 yards not 25. did you try shooting it at 100 yards? remember the scope is mounted at least an inch and probably higher than that above the barrel. at close range you will always hit low with a scope because the bullet has to climb at least an inch or more before it will be right on at 25 yards. if it is dead on at 25 it should hit way high at 100. (or the scope/ mounts are bad).

tune into the station you want as normal. Then on the remote, press & hold the number key for the preset number you want. This will flash in the display to show you it's set. You can preset 30 FM & 15 AM stations.

Need to find a satellite receiver for my JVC-200 boom box


I have a JVC boom box and I use a Sirius Sratus radio on mine through the line input of the boom box. Probably sounds better than the Sirius boom box that plugs into it.

The Bose engineers in their "infinite" wisdom developed a $300 radio with no, that is NO, tone control. This means the only way to tune bass response is to reposition the Wave radio itself. If you put it in a corner of a room, it will produce the most bass. If it is only against one wall, not so much bass. To reduce bass response to a minimum, you would have to suspend the device from a wire in the middle of the room. Good luck. I would never buy a radio without a tone control; I literally inherited by Bose Wave Radio and use external speakers which do have tone controls.

Your radio maybe bad.
Use a boom box radio and connects wires to car speakers and turn on the boom box radio. If you have good sound to the car speaker, than car radio has gone to heaven.

My car radios, M7 and 930 Ruf Slant Nose, have the same problem.
German cars & radios are not built as good as the Japanese cars.
