Does the receiver work for AM? I need to isolate the problem circuit. Please try an AM station and update this.

I have a nexxtech am/fm/radio reciever model 1219178.I cant get any radio stations am or fm.was working fine in living room. now by window in basement.what can I do to get stations again?


Radios receive their signals from the airwaves. Since most homes are frame construction and have quite a few windows, radio signals tend to do well in first floor and higher settings. In high-rises, condos, and basements, where masonry construction is prevalent, signals are weaker or non-existent. If the radio has the ability to attach an antenna, you could use a dipole and fasten it up near or to the window to attempt to get better signal. This will or should help with the FM, but AM in that location is almost impossible. If the dipole doesn't work, there are outdoor antennas and there are some amplifier antennas that are available, but this increases cost.

I just purchased an indoor antenna for to view local stations. Can i use an indoor antenna for my olevia 232-t11 lcd-hdtv? If I can, what steps do I need to follow?


Yes you can use an indoor antenna. Just make sure it is an HD antenna to get the digital channels clearly. You will have to do a scan to pick up local channels. In the TV menu, it will ask you if you want to scan for "cable" channels or "antenna" channels. You want to choose antenna.

FM antenna is not providing reception, despite cable connected to powered antenna amplifier. TV also connected to powered antenna amplifier (splitter) works fine. FM mode produces only static. I purchased...


If I understand your setup, you've connected the receiver antenna terminal to the output of the antenna amplifier. If this is true, I'd suggest trying the receiver using a plain old FM dipole antenna (available at Radio Shack and other stores) or even just a piece of wire hooked to the antenna terminal. You should be able to pick up some local FM stations then.

What might be happening is that the FM is being filtered out by the amplifier. Some amps made mainly as a TV signal booster have an FM trap designed to block the FM broadcast band. In the analog broadcast days, the FM band was right near the sound part of a TV signal, and the trap was there to prevent interference. It may be filtering out your FM band.It may also be possible that you're just overloading the FM antenna input with the amplified signal. Sometimes a signal can be too strong. Using a simple wire antenna will let you test the receiver by itself.

Other than connecting an antenna you shouldn't have to do any setup for FM reception. If you still get no stations at all when using a simple antenna, then the receiver may need service. But I doubt Circuit City would have sold a floor model that was defective, even at the very end, unless it was clearly marked as such and sold "as-is". I'm pretty sure you'll find that the receiver works with an antenna made for FM.

Bad Radio reception in new 2009 Mazda3 Sport GS model


I would venture a guess that the antenna wire that plugs into the back of the radio is not seated properly. Did the dealer tech just listen to the radio or did he/she actually check the connections on the back of the unit? A faulty antenna connection would explain why it only happens with some stations and not others. Maybe the stations that are not being a problem are transmitting a more powerful signal or are closer in range than the ones that you are having trouble picking up clearly. Just a thought. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Poor reception on atsc portable tv


an external or outside antenna will improve the amount of stations picked up and maybe a amplified antenna will help
but the boxes they sell seem to do better in reception even with only a rabbit ear antenna.
I use a box on my 32in LCD because the internal tuner just does not get all the channels without having to get up and move the antenna and the outside antenna , well I'm not going to go out there to move it all the time , and the amplified antenna I still have to keep getting up to move the antenna
so in all the box( "zenith","digital stream"are good , have yet to test others) works the best in recieving the digital channels without much worry of the antenna

2007 Chrysler 300 , AM radio not working , but FM works fine


Usually when you lose only AM it is an antenna issue. Check for a loose antenna plug on the back of the radio or connection to the antenna.

Pioneer DEH 1900 MP receiver - cannot pick up AM stations


normally the problem you are describing means that your antenna is bad. typically, if you have no am good fm bad antenna if you had good am and no fm the fm section of your radio would be bad.



you can test this but you will need an antenna (this can be purchased at most car parts stores for about $10.00) pull out the radio unplug the black round plug from the back of the radio and plug in the new one ( the antenna plug is a universal fit) you will probably need to ground the base of the antenna for the test then turn your radio I'm sure this will fix your problem but if not you can e-mail me at merle840@aol.com



good luck'

Bad reception


I see you've already read the "Troubleshooting" section of the manual! The only other things I can think of to check would be the actual connection between the radio (aka head unit) and the antenna. It's usually just a press-fit connection behind the radio, but if it's loose, corroded, or is touching some other metal, it could affect the reception.
There's also the small possibility something changed at the transmitter tower for the radio station. That happened in my area once, where they changed the direction in which most of the signal power was being broadcast. Westside reception got better, eastside reception got worse.
