SOURCE: DAB radio model Sharp FV-DB1E

This is SwannerX and I have solved the problem by locating the DAB radio receiver to a higher position ( some 6ins. higher only ) and orienteering the aerial in an opposite direction.
All 25 stations now tune O.K. and signal quality still reads in the high 90's and signal strength shows 9-10 bars. This is not substantially any more , but it has done the trick!!!
I am still very puzzled why it would not work again in the original position where it has worked well for many years.
Obviously DAB requires a good strong signal as I am living very close to the transmitter at Mounteagle in the Black Isle and the set is upstairs in the house to achieve the highest signal into the set's whip aerial.
Another annoying query I can give you is this :- Every time I do a full AutoTune operation on the DAB receiver , it ALWAYS comes ON tuning BBC Asian 1st. so that station comes up as a 'Favorite' on the Radio's screen. No matter how many other stations I select and listen to for at least 20secs. say, the BBC Asian one STILL is listed as a FAV.
Is this a peculiarity of the Sharp design or a function of the transmission system?
Maybe this BBC Asian is on the first freq. the DAB Radio scans, but I would have thought it would come ON every time with the last station which was selected before it was switched OFF.
What do you think ???

SOURCE: how to reboot hitachi dab radio

Sounds like what happened to my Sharp DAB receiver recently . - Swtch OFF completely from all power sources and proceed with the recommended RESET function.
Move set and/or aerial to be sure of a good strong signal before attempting a complete re-start and full AutoTune as per the instruction manual.
This operation certainly cured my problem although I never have found out what caused the failure in the first place!!!

SOURCE: can not tune in Dab

If it's anything lioke my DAB radio there is a Tune button that you hold down for more than 5secs and it goes into 'Autotune' mode - so that after some time ,say 1min, all the available stations are tuned1
Hope this works for you .

SOURCE: nothing works on it. it

Use a piece of wire (rebar wire works well for this, avail. at any hardware store in a roll about $5.00) with taped wrapped on the end so it doesn't tear the rubber drain hose, don't force it take your time.

Why will my radio new 3120 not pick up dab stations at all really tune and all I get is radio 2 have tried for a week to get magic fm thank you


If you have replaced a normal car radio with a DAB then your existing aerial is not suitable due to the required frequency range. You need a DAB aerial for cars. There are many types available, internal or external. Don't bother with converters as this will only give a marginal boost to the fm aerial.

I bought a Bush digtal/ AM/ FM radio ("retro transistor" style). DAB reception dropouts lasting several seconds each time have started occurring recently. AM/ FM is ok.


Constant usage of DAB should not cause it any damage ever. The dropouts are very characteristic of a poor signal reaching the DAB tuner, as digital is either there, or not there, nothing in between.

Check the aerial connection if any, the rod antenna if any, and try moving the antenna (whatever it is) to a better location, usually higher up, away from thick walls, and away from speakers if any.

Delphi skyfi2 Xm Radio Receiver car connection


Yes, you can buy an FM Direct adapter that will allow you to transmit directly to your car FM tuner, but if you have an older SkyFi2, the Fm transmitter is so strong, you can sit the radio on the floor and tune your car radio to your preset XM channel, like 107.1 FM and it will work great. Go into "Menu" and pick a channel that's not used locally.

How to preset favourite dab stations on matsui dr100 i have no instructions


This budget radio from Matsui allows you to enjoy the wide range of benefits of DAB digital radio for a very affordable price. The R100 is powered from the mains and features stereo speakers to allow you to really enjoy the clarity of digital radio.
Digital radio offers more station choice in more places, meaning that digital radio has something for everyone. DAB even has easy tuning, therefore you no longer have to scroll though numbers to find the exact frequency and you no longer have to remember the frequency numbers as with DAB you scroll through station names.


hope this may help;

DAB RADIO MATSUI MATCR 515D- ILLUMINATED TIME/STATION DISAPPEARED - NO RECEPTION - MUSH CAN BE HEARD IN SPEAKER


It is possible for the display to be set so low that it is not illuminated at all. With the radio off (i.e. the set must be in standby), press and hold TUNE+ to raise the brightness level.

If this gets the display back, you may be able to see what has happened to the tuning. e.g. check whether the tuner is set to FM or DAB etc.
