Question about Dewalt DC011 AM/FM Radio

1 Answer

Receiver went Tango Uniform

This is a relatively new radio ( 1 year old) that has only been used on a shelf in a garage. I have used a Sirius receiver through the radio with no problem. One day, the radio's receiver just stopped working. I tried all local channels, both AM and FM and received nothing but static. Any suggestions, other than using it for targtet practice? Thanks!

    My radio is about a year old also. Absolutely no abuse. Just quit working while I was changing stations. I don't even get static. Battery or grid-makes no diff. The battery I keep in it seemed to be pretty warm.... Need some kind of idea, it's really too expensive to throw away. JC

Receiver ohm output?

The ohm rating is invariably on a small sticker on the back or inside the speaker.
If it is missing, you nead a small 'multimeter' which are not very costly.

I have a Grundig Mini 300 World Band Receiver and the power button has stopped working so I cannot turn the radio on.

Spray some WD-40 on the on/off button and press and release the button multiple times. This will clean the gunk built up on the micro-switch and make a better connection.

We have had severe weather all day and it didn't go off. It had been working perfectly for a year. When I turn on the weather/snooze button I get a constant loud squeal on every channel. any ideas??

Check this website's FAQs page- Your answer may be in FAQ #10. It may be also that your local NWS transmitter may not have been receiving a good transmission because of the type of severe weather that you had. Maybe you should call your local NWS office and plea your case. I don't know if this will help, but this is my suggestion.

Advantage of (1980s and 1990s) Sony ICF-SW7600

Some newer radios do not have the quality build that the old ones had. The switch over to cheaper labor countries have lessened the quality and lack of good parts have lead to newer designs but not always better. My old SONY ICF-7600, not the G or GR, has a great receiver on LW and MW but after replacing aging capacitors!

Why do we have radio interference when floresenct lights are on. when we turn the lights on in our garage cannot get any radio station just static

Florescent lights are notorious for making RF noise! It is the way the lights work and there is no real way to eliminate the problem except to replace the lights or not use them. On the radio's side, the design of the receiver will either keep the noise out or magnify it and there is not a whole lot one can do about this!
To lessen the radio from receiving the noise, move the location of the radio or use an external antenna. Some times a filter can decrease the level of noise.

13 years old Sony ICF-SW7600 not working

Sony radios of this era had notorious capacitor problems.... also several other brands were affected. These capacitors were underrated and the technology to make them was not at it's best back then. The cure is to replace the capacitors on the board with new electrolytics. About 28 of them need to be replaced but the big problem is to find someone to do this. the original capacitors are surface mount and must be removed and new radial lead caps put in their place, some are rather tough to get at and the new ones have to be placed carefully. My SONY ICF-SW7600 now works as new and maybe even better!
I have done this myself as I have skills working with surface mount capacitors. I offer my services to those who cannot find service for their radios. Please email me for details, I am not into making bucks on this, I just want to see these radios kept working and bringing enjoyment to their owners.

AM/FM stereo receiver often fully "drops" the reception of listened to radio station(s), or reception will often decrease in volume. Repositioning of the receiver's connected antenna wire often has no...

Possible solution. I have fixed two with this problem. When the radio drops to a hard surface, the ferrite coil antenna is the heaviest component on circuit board. Look for cracks in solder or broken wires where attachments to circuit board occurs for this component. Use a fine point soldering iron with low heat.
