Question about Panasonic SC-AK630 CD Shelf System

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?

I am in the same boat. I can play my favorite radio station and Pandora through my bluetooth connection on my iPad and iPhone. The reception is great.

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.

Check your connections on the antenna again. Am usually gets decent reception. sounds like your antenna connection isnt fully connected either at the stereo connection or at the actual antenna connection.

When I turn on the rear defrost the radio loses reception. is there a short between the radio antenna and rear defrost


Heated rear windows have a high voltage load, quickest and easy resolve would be to install an inline suppressor to where the aerial plugs into the back of the stereo, available from all car audio store, it will improve your reception also.

FM Reception with Jensen MSR3007


I have the exact same problem with the exact same stereo. I started by removing the in-line AM/FM/VHF Separator and connecting the antenna directly to the stereo. The static/popping/fade-out continued. Today I swapped to a new antenna, but it did not help. I swapped back to the original antenna and for a brief while, I had good reception. The I went to coil the excess antenna cable and the static/popping/fade-out resumed. I have narrowed it down to either the antenna connector coming out of the back of the stereo or an internal circuit. Either way, it does not look like a do-it-yourself fix.

98 plymouth voyager radio wont work. comes in as static. am works fine.


First start with pulling out the radio and make sure the antenna wire is plugged in. The last owner might have had an aftermarket radio in it and when they put the factory one back, forgot a wire. To remove it remove the trim ring (two screws I think) and then the radio screws.

Radio Problem


There is not an easy answer for this one. Some troubleshooting needs to be done. I have seen the Rockford Fosgate system in many of the newer Sentra's. Try hooking a known working speaker to a nonworking position. This will tell if it is a speaker problem. If the problem persists, this could be stereo or amplifier.
Terrible reception troubleshooting, a bad antenna will give poor FM and no AM. If both have bad reception, this is a stereo problem. You can remove the stereo from the dash, place a small pick tool or screwdriver into the antenna jack and test reception. If the reception problem clears, this is a antenna problem. I have seen car detailers pull the connector from the rear window antenna and forget to plug it back in too.

Bad radio reception


Problem: Radio Reception is bad to non-existant. AM is usually worse than FM.

Reason: Antenna connector has come loose, and needs to be reconnected. This happens when a passenger pushes the carpet toward the firewall and disconnects the plug.

Affected Model Years: 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003

Permanent Fix:

1. First check to make sure the antenna at the back of the radio has not come loose.
2. Remove the plastic cover on the front passenger door threshold held in place by three pressure clips.
3. Peel back the carpet on the front seat passenger floor.
4. Locate the coax antenna cable running along the side.
5. Reconnect the two pieces of antenna that have come loose.
6. Roll the carpet back, and re-install the threshold cover.
