Yep, I had to dig out a swiss army type tool. If you have a glasses repair kit, that might work too.

My grundig satellit 700 will not power on with mains or batteries

This could be as simple as a connector working loose. You need to open the radio by removing the 4 screws in the back of the case (2 are under the handle, and one is in the battery compartment). These screws are identified by a small arrow pointing at the screw hole. Once the screws are out, gently pry the bottom out first (the top has the catches in it), then pull down slightly and remove the back side of the case. there will be one wire on a connector going to the battery compartment you will have to disconnect before the back of the case is entirely free.

After the case is open you will have access to the connectors on the RF board. Make sure all 4 connectors are fully seated. There is another connector under the RF board going to the processor/display board you will need to check if the other 4 connectors are OK. You need to remove the 5 screws holding the main board in place so you can remove it to check the last connector.

You do not need to reassemble the radio to check to see if this has worked. You can plug the AC adapter in and test by pressing the power button.

If this does not work, there is a fuse you can check. These rarely fail, but it is possible. The fuse is located near the external power receptacle, and is mounted on the component side of the audio/potentiometer board. This is the circuit board with the volume, bass, and treble controls on it. You will be looking at the solder side of this board, but by tilting the radio up (with the back cover off) you cann see enough under the board to see the fuse. You can pop it out of its holder and check with an ohm meter.

Radio loses all preset stations and resets clock when turned off

There is a little door on the bottom side of the radio with a Phillips screw on one end. Remove the screw and replace the 2 AA batteries in the compartment. Replace the door.

Is not charging batteries but it will play off the batteries

Check iside radio, there is a metal box which is your charger unit. You need to undo the 2 phillip screws on the charger housing to gain access to the fuse inside which is a 2 amp.

Same problem with volume control

I had this problem. The jog dial just stopped functioning. I repaired it by doing this:

1. Remove the batteries and leave the battery cover off.

2. Remove the case screws from the radio using a jewelers sized Phillips screw driver. There is one screw inside the battery compartment.

3. Gently separate the two halves of the radio just a few inches. Remove the wrist strap; it will just be laying over top of a screw post.

4. Inspect the wring of the jog dial. You will note several wires soldered to the dial, including one small bundle of wires leading from the jog dial to a white plastic connector on the faceplate of the radio.

5. Study the bundle of wires from the jog dial to the faceplate. Is it twisted? Has it been crimped inside the case? Smooth and straighten the wires with your fingers gently. Remove severe bends.

6. Detach the small white plastic connector from the faceplate and untwist and smooth the wires. The connector should slip off easily. Now clean the metal pins that the connector mates to with a Q-Tip. Seat, remove and re-seat the connector 3 times to scrape off any built up corrosion. Ensure the wire bundle is smooth and untwisted and reattach the connector.

7. With the radio still apart, reinstall good batteries. DO NOT USE AC POWER! and check that you have returned the proper function of the jog dial.

8. Reinstall the wrist strap over the top corner post and carefully mate the two halves of the radio together. Continue to test and check the jog dial as you seat the halves together. Reinstall one or two case screws at a time, checking that the dial still functions until the radio is fully reassembled and the case is tight.

This just happened to me. I unscrewed the back (8 screws, each under a rubber pad on the back of the unit) and removed the back cover. I used a jewe;er's Phillips head screwdriver.

You will notice that when you remove the cover, the round watch battery that preserves the memory comes loose. Be sure to remove it so you can reinstall it after you replace the cover.

I didn't really do much except look around.

I pressed the reset button a few times.

I replaced the cover but not the screws. I then replaced the batteries and it worked. I cannot explain why, but it does.

Try this and see if it works for you, too!
