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 ???

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: 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.

Fm radio works fine but the dab will not find any stations, I have tried different aerials and still no good


What's the make & model of the radio?
Most DAB/FM radios work from the same antenna, so if you receive FM stations, you should receive DAB stations in your area.
It should be noted that DAB transmitters work on lower power than conventional FM transmitters, and so you may be in a weak reception area (for DAB). It should also be noted that DAB uses different frequencies than regular FM stations and household appliances such as laptops,WiFi, microwave ovens, etc can affect DAb reception.

HOW DO I GET MY CDAB5IR STEREO DABRADIO TO WORK


The first thing is to consider what DAB signal quality you have there. It might not be strong enough. Digital radio is not like AM/FM, it simply goes off altogether if the signal is weak.

I would take it to the shop and ask for assistance, or get next to a DAB radio which does work well. Then recheck things like settings, tuning, and a good battery in it (I think that model is a smallish radio?)

I want a MANUAL for TELEFUNKEN (radio machine 1958) Super Heterodyne D778 WK TROT. My father own this from my grandfather and it does not tune to radio stations. Please let me know if you can help us with...


Hi, I will do the best I can to help you. I remember these radios from my childhood. There may be some things you can do to help it tune to FM radio stations. On the back of the radio, there should be 2 screws referring to an "FM" antenna. If the radio is making a "hissing" sound through the speaker, but you are not picking up any stations, then connect a single wire about 1.5 meters in length to the screw labeled "FM antenna". The other screw, if it is labeled "ground" leave with no wire attached. Make sure that the wire you use does not touch both screws. The piece of wire should act as an FM antenna. If that is the only issue, then you should pick up radio stations.
That is a very well made, good quality radio, but it is over 50 years old.
Here is a link to Telefunken in Germany. They may be able to find a manual for you.

I would suggest having someone fill out the request in English.
I hope I have helped you. Let me know.

How do I preset the tuner for radio stations. I've never had a problem doing this with any other stereo. But what I think should work isn't!


Not very specific. Do you have the manual?

The following is from a VSX-03TXH manual. It ain't pretty but it may help.

I'm posting it in multiple parts due to space contraints.

Chapter 6:

Using the tuner

Listening to the radio

The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and

AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and

manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the

frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a

station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can

memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving

station presets below for more on how to do this.

1 Press the FM/AM button to select the tuner.

2 Use the FM/AM button to change the band (FM or

AM), if necessary.

Each press switches the band between FM and AM.

3 Tune to a station.

There are three ways to do this:

Automatic tuning

To search for stations in the currently selected band,

press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for about a second. The

receiver will start searching for the next station,

stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for

other stations.

Manual tuning

To change the frequency one step at a time, press

TUNE ?©/??.

High speed tuning

Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.

Release the button at the frequency you want.

Improving FM stereo sound

If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when

tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press

the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono

reception mode. This should improve the sound quality

and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.

Using Neural THX

This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to

achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.

• While listening to FM radio, press AUTO/DIRECT for
Neural THX listening.

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.

Buzzer instead of radio


I have this radio too and from what I have read in a review on amazon suggests alarm does not tune to DAB only FM - very annoying! Contacted Goodman customer care and they suggested it was a problem with a component but maybe it is just the design.
