Ford 6000 eon radio unit - unit has no volume on fm stations, or occasionally the vlume comes on when first turned on and then fades after about 20 - 30 seconds. It finds stations on automatic search but just has no volume. the volume is fine on MW, and the cd works ok as well. I have checked the aerial connection and all is OK. Any suggestions?

Help I have no volume at all the stereo & cd works but there is no sound

Posted on Sep 26, 2008

Alas

This is a very common fault with these units, repair is a little expensive, as it's the FM tuner unit. It's an ebay job I'm afraid, pay around £45 for a second hand 6000 with code.

I can't get my tuner to work, but everything else works fine. All I get is static went I turn to the radio stations on both FM/AM


If you are in a fringe area you might need an external antenna to work with your tuner. Happens.

I can get am station fine get fm barely


The FM and AM antennas are different types. AM sometimes doesn't even need an antenna. Please make sure you are using the right type of antenna attached to the FM antenna terminals on the back of your receiver. Usually a 6-8 ft. piece of wire is sufficient if you're within 20-30 miles of a radio station.

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.

The stereo light on my marantz 2226b receiver does not come on even on a stereo fm station


Hello,

my first question is does the light come on when you turn to Tape, Phono, Aux selection? If no lamp is blown, if it does come on then your tuner need to be serviced. FM tuner work is NOT for a novice. I would be glad to take a look at the unit.

Thanks

I just bought the RCA CD/DVD home theater system RTD206. I cant figure out how to change the radio channels. Also cant figure out how to change the cd disk tracks. Does this system have a remote. Or do...


The system does have a remote (at least it should come with one if purchased new), and you need it to control pretty much everything. Here's what the manual says about the radio tuner (you can find the whole manual here) :

Manual Tuning
1. Connect the FM aerial and the AM loop antenna at the back of the unit. Rotate the AM loop for
better reception.
2. Press TUNER to enter TUNER mode and toggle between FM and AM.
3. When the FM station broadcasts Stereo sound, ST is displayed.
4. Tune a station by pressing repeatedly the TUNER+/- buttons until the desired station is found.
Alternatively, you can press and hold the same buttons down for about one second to activate
the automatic search function. In this mode the player will automatically tune frequencies until
it finds a station.
5. Repeat step 4 to tune to another radio station.

Storing radio stations
The player can store up to 30 radio stations in its memory. You can enter every single radio station
yourself or the player can store all available radio stations automatically in ascending order.
Automatic preset programming
1. Press TUNER to enter the Tuner mode.
2. Press and hold TUNER down for 3 seconds to start automatic preset programming.
Note: A weak signal can affect the "Automatic preset programming" function's efficiency. Adjust the aerial for better
reception and a more efficient search.
3. Radio frequencies will be browsed and radio stations stored automaitcally. When all the available
radio stations are stored or all 30 memory locations are full, the auto preset programming
function will stop.

Manual preset
1. Tune to a radio station (see "Manual tuning" for details).
2. Press MEMORY once to enter flashing Preset Loaction number.
3. While the Preset Location number is still flashing, input your desired preset number (1-30) using
the numeric buttons or press the CH+/- buttons, then press MEMORY to store it.

Retrieving preset stations
1. Press TUNER to enter the Tuner mode.
2. Press CH+/- to search up or down for the preset stations or directly press the numeric buttons.

As you see, you really need that remote. The same is true for disc play. While there are front panel buttons for play/stop, disc skip, and drawer open/close, you don't have any other control without the remote. Without the remote control you'll find this system won't do too much, unfortunately. If you bought this new, check the packing material before you throw it away to make sure the remote's not still somewhere in the box. They often come tucked into slots on the foam inserts.

Also, when you hook the unit to a TV, it's just using the TV as a video display device. The TV has nothing to do with any of the system's other functions.

I hope you have luck locating the remote! Thanks for using Fixya.

I have an older onkyo integra (TX-870) which pop when I change stations, then no sound. Need to turn off and begin again. Can this be fixed or should I purchase a new 2 channel sys?


Hi, It sounds like you are listening F.M. radio and the F.M. muting button is engaged ( as well it should be-otherwise you will have static between the stations ) sometimes there is almost a "THUMP" sound when you switch stations-this is caused by the receivers P.L.L. circuitry losing then locking in on stations, if you do not lower the system volume you will amost assuredly cause an overload of your final drivers, that's why it will come back on when turned off-it has reset. Turning off fm muting will get rid of the "POPPING" noise-it will however leave you with unbearable static which in turn should cause you to lower volume momentarily eliminating the need to constantly turn off the receiver. Thank for asking FixYa, I hope this helps, let me know how I did or if I can be of more assistance, good luck Prodzilla

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.

Regarding a Yamaha RX-V757 receiver, if I have my volume set above approximately -28, whether I'm playing a DVD or listening to a music CD, the units power shutsoff. When I turn it back on the display says...


Try turning up the volume with just the FM selected (and tuned to a station). If you can adjust the volume to an appreciably higher level when simply tuning in a radio station, then your CD/DVD player may be outputting a signal with a DC offset, which is getting amplified when you turn up the volume, and past a certain point the protection circuitry is sensing too much DC being sent to the speakers and shuts the unit down. If the unit is getting hot, there is likely an internal problem, or you have a shorted speaker wire, or even a bad speaker. Replace the speaker wires as a test, and you can also run the unit with only one speaker connected at a time to see if any are the source of your problem.
Yes, it's possible that there's nothing wrong with the wires or the speakers, and the unit simply needs a trip to the shop, but it's your job to rule out the easy stuff before you pack it up and take it in.
