Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have an excellent Goodmans 120 tuner amplifier with superb sound quality but I cannot select broadcasting stations . The chord attached to pointer dial can search/sweep in one direction but I cannot get the dial to return the pointer in opposite direction without assisting the flywheel by hand .The cord appears to slip.. I would be most grateful if somebody could give me some help in rectifying the problem . my email is len.dacruz @ gmail.com
A quick fix first.... Some times you can apply a little extra tension into the dial cord by looping an extra turn about the flywheel. you may have to unhitch one of the other pulleys to do this, but whilst placing a little more of the tension in the spring attached to the tuning gang. If this is not successful, then you will need to restring the dail drive. Take several photos of it first, and draw a diagram as well. It used to be the apprentices job restringing the daildrives, very difficult at first, but alot easier once you have had some practice. To get replacement cord, you will need to go to the like of Vintage-electronics in the US, or WES components in Australia, Ebay sometimes has this sort of thing. I have a roll myself I could post some to you also :)

Using the tuner
Listening to the radio
The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and
AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and
manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the
frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a
station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can
memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving
station presets below for more on how to do this.
1 Press the FM/AM button to select the tuner.
2 Use the FM/AM button to change the band (FM or
AM), if necessary.
Each press switches the band between FM and AM.
3 Tune to a station.
There are three ways to do this:
To search for stations in the currently selected band,
press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for about a second. The
receiver will start searching for the next station,
stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for
To change the frequency one step at a time, press
High speed tuning
Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.
Release the button at the frequency you want.
Improving FM stereo sound
If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when
tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press
the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono
reception mode. This should improve the sound quality
and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.
Using Neural THX
This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to
achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.
• While listening to FM radio, press AUTO/DIRECT for
Neural THX listening.
