Question about Panasonic SC-AK630 CD Shelf System

2 Answers

No antenna, no radio reception

Dad bought this mini-stereo and they didn't include the antenna. He doesn't want to take it back and the store (where I will never shop again) says you can't buy the antenna seperately. Listening to FM radio is important to Dad, doesn't need AM reception. Ideas?

If the model number is SC-AK630, please confirm. The antenna should still be available from any Panasonic part distributor. Please confirm the model and I'll get you the part number and cost.

Can i connect an external antenna to a sanyo awm 2000u stereo for better tuner reception?


Your stereo came with a piece of wire attached at the back. This is/was the FM aerial. It should be roughly 1 metre or approx 38" long. There is no socket on the back of this stereo to attach an external FM aerial. So if the wire broke off then you're going to have to either attach some new wire to the stub, or open the set up and solder directly to the circuit board.

The exact cable lengths for an FM antenna to pick up 88-108 MHz is 37.66" long.

Where can I order an antenna forthe CD BA 2100 stereo


Hi,you can find it any Electronic Store or even Hardware store..Just ask for " FM antenna Cable " of course this is a passive antenna.
.if you have any reception problem to get FM signals on your location ,than you need to buy" Active FM antenna" with amplifier.....before go to store pls take a look at the rear panel of your stereo to see and decide what kind of FM antenna plug you have it..

Antenna Wire Missing.


a length of wire similar to the original should work. The end bit may have been an F-connector. Just plug the wire into the middle of the connector on the back or the receiver. Adjust the position of the wire till you get a good signal.

AM radio does not work unless an antennae wire is plugged into the rear of the machine. If I hold the bare wire reception is 10 times better. WHY?


Because it requires external antenna, check hifi system box for loop antenna that looks like rectangular ring and has 2 wires for connection at back of unit.

No FM reception on CMT-ED1 Sony shelf system


There is hardly ever an internal FM antenna -- only AM. You'll need at least one of those twin-ax dipole antennas (there's one with every receiver bought).

You can test the concept just by putting a single piece of wire on each antenna terminal -- when you do this reception should improve immediately, but will not be as good as with the dipole antenna.

Fm Radio signal?


There was a black wire included (with a metal "cap" to insert in the FM center connector) that served as the FM antenna, but in a pinch any wire can do, preferably about 33" long and with the insulation stripped from the last inch or so (or get creative and sand the last inch of varnish off a properly sized untwisted clothes hanger and gently bend to suit). Bare stranded wire should be twisted or folded until it's thick enough to firmly fit the middle "hole" of the FM antenna connector. Be careful that no strands of wire short to the metal ground "ring" surrounding the hole or the antenna won't work (although it won't burn out your amp like shorting the speaker wires would, it just won't work). Orient the wire horizontally or vertically for best reception. This unit also doesn't pick up FM very well if you're in a steel-framed building or away from windows in the general direction of the local transmitters, so moving the unit closer to a window may help dramatically. In bad reception areas you can get an external FM "rabbit ears" type antenna but you'll need the "European" style of 300 ohm to 75 ohm transformer to plug it into the unit's FM connector (one that has a bigger central connector "plug" than the usual US units). Some cable systems also still support FM, if yours does, a VHF/UHF/FM signal splitter and either the above mentioned transformer attached to flat 300 ohm cable or a plain  "European" style connector attached to the end of the 75 ohm round black cable will do the trick. Some Radio Shacks have them. Good luck!

Use a dedicated FM T-strip antenna avialable from Radio Shack or even Wal-Mart

Better fm reception


Is it just a single wire?

If so, purchase a cheap FM antena. It looks like a "T" when spread out (4' to 5'). That should help.

You can purchase an "amplified" antenna, but if your area reception is really bad (such as in a valley) the antenna would just amplify the noise as well. Look for web based radio in this case or if you have cable there are stations on it.
