Well, I had the same problem and I took it in, cuz I couldn't find a solution.

The Dewalt service center in portland, replaced the POWER PCB ASSY, PCB ASSEMBELY RELAY, and the BATTERY HOLDER.

I had a feeling, It was something simple so I asked them to return the faulty parts to me. They refused.

I talked to them more about it saying they are basically stealing my parts by refusing to return them to me.

They said it was store policy.

I think it is shady and spoke to the manager. She said they would return the old parts to me.

When I get there to pick up my radio, they didn't save the parts.

I feel ripped off like they may have ovecharged me or, just said they put something in when they didn't/didn't need to.

Am I justified? They should do something for me

Dc011 radio works with battery but wont work when plugged in what could it be


Sounds like the mains transformer has gone. That is what reduces the mains outlet power of 110 volt to that of the batteries.

You could check the power cord though for 110 volts at the end.

The battery is fully charged. It works while connected to the mains, but if i turn it off and remove the power cord (so it works on the batteries) it won't turn on. However, it will turn on while connected...


Change the battery in it. It can be found online. It is easily accessed on the back of the radio, by unscrewing 2 philips screws. I had the same problem with mine, with an old battery. Once turned on, I could unplug it and it would play for 12-14 hours. Apparently the iPal needs a higher voltage when it turns on, so your old battery is not able to deliver that.

Radio works on mains but not battery


I take it the battery has life in it ? check the connections to where the battery makes contact on the radio, your battery contacts may not be connecting to the radio or they may need cleaning. Does the radio charge the battery still ?

My dewalt dw911 radio/charger works on either mains or battery but wont charge a battery and blows an internal fuse when both are used together


More than likely your internal charger is faulty. Inside your inernal charger unit check the 2 anmp fuse which is white in colour.
