Question about Sony Walkman WM-FX290 Personal Cassette Player

Need instructions on how to use my walkman

I lost the instructions on how to use my never been used new walkman. It has the weatherband, AM, FM, 40 presets, TV, and cassette player. I can't figure it out. Took it to Best Buy and he didn't know either. Can I get a set of instructions? I'm a 74 year old female and need lots of help with these modern gadgets. I'm not familiar with these new things and the names of the parts. I don't know anyone who can help me. Please HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!! I have a cord to use it with my Bose radio. That only has a CD player and I have so many nice cassettes but nothing to play them on. But when I plug the player into the radio and put the radio on auxilliary nothing happens. I can't figure out any of the switches.

    where is your "trouble-shooting forums"? What does "you can find the problem thread in your FixYa profile"mean.

    I don't understand any of that. Foam

No, I did not solve my problem. I thought your service was free and I cannot afford to pay you to tell me how to get a set of directions on how to use it. Thank you for answering my letter. Foam

My 2010 Ultra Classic with 200 miles has cd skip. Store bought home made and mp3 all skip. Bike was ok for first 50 miles. Sometimes it switches to the weatherband. Plugged in ipod as alternate and...


Radio switching to weatherband is an indication that the weather alert function of the CB is turned on. If the weather channel transmits an alert signal, it will switch to weatherband. Speakers cutting out may be your VOX setting is too sensitive or the squelch setting on the CB is too sensitive. Lower both the VOX and squealch and see if that works. If the issue continues, contact Iron Cross Audio for more help. www.ironcrossaudio.com

No sound


If you are getting AM sound, but not FM, its because the headphones you are using are shielded for interference. This shielding is what is causing you not to be able to pickup FM, as the headphone wires are what is used as an FM antenna for the unit. Try using a CHEAPER set of headphones (Yes, I said cheaper). Cheaper headphones usually don't have the shielding. Usually these types of headphones have both wires for the headphones bound together as one wire.
