I talked directly to Midland tech support about this same question. They told me that its mainly for enmass programming of like weather radios. You use one as the clone and connect others thru the PC connection. I still havent found out wether its a mono or stereo double ended cord.

Found this on The PC jack is for when they programmed the radio in the factory. There is no power going to this jack and No you can not hook it up to a PC.

After return of a power outage, my R227 was rendered"dead", presumably because of voltage spike. Is there a fuse in the interior which might be open?

Yes there is. It is just inside the back cover on the right side looking from the back. It is located at the end of the brown wire from the power input jack. It has a plastic cover over it and is a
T2AL 250 volt (2 amp slow blow) with pig tails on it.

Eton e5 sw shot

The SW FET preamp transistor, Q1, on the underside of the circuit board blows if a static electric discharge hits the whip antenna. In my case, a cat rubbing against me & the radio on a very dry winter day did it in. The back & circuit board has to be removed to get at it. The micro transistor & the solder connection are very tiny, so hard to replace. The antenna jack should still work, because the preamp is only for the whip antenna's SW reception. An easier solution would be to just run a wire from the antenna jack to the whip antenna, but you would no longer have the whip's preamp benefits, or just use a longwire antenna connected to the jack for SW. Also beware plugging into the jack disables the AM ferrite antenna inside, so you might not want anything plugged into it for AM reception because the internal ferrite seems to perform better than any external antenna.

( no sound from speaker) i detached the grundig headphnes from my satellit 800 millenium -- the speaker remained 'silent' --otherwise, the radio appears to be functioning normally -- the radio functions...

it maybe that the cut off switch in the headphone jack has stuck as you place in a jack to the headphone socket there is a small switch that mutes the normal speakers and this should switch back on as you remove the headphones, this may have stuck. you will have to open the back and check the back from inside. try to short the mute and see if that is the problem. maybe squirt a small amount of contact cleanrer spray in the jack hole and insert and remove the headphone jack a few times this may resolve.

I hope this was helpful

Need repair of right side speaker. Dropped headset and speaker fell out/wires detached.

Not to worry you can use the same wires provided they are not damaged. First of all check your speaker if the unit had damaged with a multimeter check on the continuity. If it show OK then check the continuity of the wires to the jack. If there is continuity then you can connect carefully the wires to the rear side of the speaker using a good soldering iron. Now check this out, It must work well Good day

The left side sound is out I thought it was the headphones or earbuds but I even bought new ones and the same problem.

This can be a failure of the connection jack inside the unit or the electronics that supply the signal to the headphone connection. Connectors like this can be purchased at radio shack. The unit will need to be opened up by removing the screws in the back to see if the jack is loose or damaged. You can then plan your next move. be it re solder the existing connector or replace the connector entirely. if you are lacking solder skills locate someone who can help or take the unit to a shop.

No sound after dropping S350.

Probably one of two things:

The dropped caused the speaker leads from the PCB to Speaker to disengage (check the earphone jack, too... 'cause it is in the circuit)


The bounce cause the Audio amplifier IC to become desoldered from the PCB.

Power won't stay on

Home Depot recalled all of them for this reason. Great radio, just use reachable batteries instead of the charger stand. The stand and OEM battery is the problem. I kept mine and use rechargeable's instead.
