Hi oldquincpie

If it is a problem that has just started, it is probably a bad earth on your antenna. If it is fender mounted, it may have dirt and rust under its base. Try loosening it off and cleaning under it with some emery tape. put it back together and try it. If you still have no luck, it may be that the antenna has a faulty internal connection. replacement may be necessary.
If the problem has always been there(since radio installed), you may need to do some radio interference suppression efforts to the car. Check the aerial first and see how you go. In the workshop, we have a spare aerial to plug into the back of the radio and temporarily earth it to the chassis somehow to check for an antenna fault.

How to keep the radio light on?


The sensor behind the plastic readout window needs to be exposed to a sufficient amount of light to alter the display brightness from dark room mode to bright room mode (dimmed display, bright display). Be sure sufficient light falls on the digital readout display when desiring the display to be at its bright mode setting.

Yes, all you need is a standard audio adapter cable that plugs into the earbud jack on the kindle and into the "variable in" jacks on the back of the Bose. (male stereo 1/8" plug to a pair of male RCA/phono plugs).

Fm radio works fine but the dab will not find any stations, I have tried different aerials and still no good


What's the make & model of the radio?
Most DAB/FM radios work from the same antenna, so if you receive FM stations, you should receive DAB stations in your area.
It should be noted that DAB transmitters work on lower power than conventional FM transmitters, and so you may be in a weak reception area (for DAB). It should also be noted that DAB uses different frequencies than regular FM stations and household appliances such as laptops,WiFi, microwave ovens, etc can affect DAb reception.

There seem to be no power. Nothing is on. I change the 9 Volt battery and still nothing is on. No radio, No clock. For a Bose clock radio. David Fong


Hi,
Sorry for the late answer to your solution. There was some problem with my account in fixya.
I was not able to post any solution from yesterday as the new site is in development stage as told by the customer care of fixya.

I seen your question. You have to check the power cord of your bose wave radio first. Is there is any loose contact at its socket at the both ends. If its seems ok, Then you have to check the inline fuse inside the wave radio. For that you have to open the wave radio. I am giving you this solution assuming that you are aware of reparing electronic items. If you have some knowledge on fixing electronic items then you can fix it yourself.

Before removing the wave radio remove the power cord from the sockets. There will be 6 screws at the bottom of your wave radio in some models its 8 numbers. After removing the screws turn the radio and pull out the top cover. You can see the inline fuse near the AC input socket where you connect the power cord. Using a multimeter test the contnuity of the fuse. it should show zero ohms. if no, then the fuse is faulty remove the fuse and replace with a new one and power up the radio and check

If there is no other fault the wave radio will work ok. If the fuse blows again then the transformer of your wave radio is faulty. The primary winding of the transformer have some short inside. As it is a custom design the C core transformers are only available through bose service centers. If they are willing to supply the transformers to customers then buy it from them and replace yourself. If not, then you have to give the radio to them to be repeired. If you need any more assistance feel free to conatct me through fixya.The fuse will look like one in the picture.

I have a new Onkyo TX-SR508 receiver. When listening to FM radio the audio cuts out repeatedly for anything from a few seconds to a minute. Power fluctuation is very unlikely to be the problem. Signal...


Does the display show "tuned" or "FM Stereo"? This would normally indicate a good reception. The tuner has a signal level threshold and if the signal gets to week, the receiver mutes to prevent noise in the speakers. Swithing to mono make reception less intolerant. Does the problem also occur, when you switch to mono?

I have a 1970's Sony AM Receiver ICR-9. Reception is poor and sounds almost like it is receiving on another band. It has been a great radio and would like to retain. Bill


Do you use an indoor antenna ? Nowadays, with all gear around, like micro-waves receptors, strong motors, satellites, etc., reception becomes quite poor, unless you use an external antenna, properly set to catch broadcast stations. FM reception particularly has its signal much improved in that way. Correct demodulation requires a good an somewhat large outdoor antenna. Hope I could help. Good Luck.

Can i have two 400 w spekers on sony DA5000ES?


Be very careful here.

If you put the speakers in parallel, the amp may well blow (4 ohm speakers in parallel would kill it at high volumes), and it may take the speakers with it.

I wouldn't try to extract more than the rated power from the amp. At it's rated output, it's seriously distorting, to a point where it becomes unlistenable. So, trying to ramp up the power further would only make it sound worse.

Putting the speakers in series is a safer route for your amp.
