Digital display on onkyo tx-sv70pro not working radio plays ok.

Yes...the sun would have harm this but it would take a lot of sun. I am betting your display is just burned out. If you look hard enough you can find a replacement for the display. It is a plug and play board.

Hi im having start up issues with my honda cr-v 2002- rd5 series. I would drive for some time and when i stop and return the vehicle would not start, i have to wait atleast 30 min before i start. Though...

If the occasional fail to start increases more often with temperature, that is outside temp or inside temp if the car is sitting in the sun, the saturday morning "cartalk" guys on NPR repeatedly say that Honda has a problem with a fuel pump relay which sits up under the dash. It goes bad and this generally happens with a hot day or a hot interior. So maybe you want to give that a shot.

Depending on the type of microphone used, if not the type using the speaker as a microphone, it may be damaged. I would though, suggest you remove the battery, open the case and allow the innards to dry in a warm place for several days. Even daily exposure to the sun should work fine.

Possibly the fuel tank vent system is plugged and the sun causes pressure changes within the tank. Try to park in a shady spot for a day to see if this changes anything.

Check the vent on the gas tank. Open the lid when it is hot and see if alot of pressure escapes, if so the furl tank vent is plugged and building up pressure to flood the engine.

I cant close the soft top on my rubicon.

I had this same issue the first few times I tried to latch my soft top. The trick is to stretch the top. Pick a nice hot day, leave the top "baking" in the sun for quite a few hours. The way I did it was to latch the front part of the top and pull the back corner pieces down hard and tuck the tabs into the body to lock them in place. The top will need to "bake" in the sun again for a bit. I wouldn't put it back down at night the first few times. As the night cools the top, it may go back to the original size and you'll be back where you started. I found that playing the "stretch" game on a hot weekend worked just fine. Of course, it's still a little tight, but if it wasn't, it would leak!!!

Good luck with your top!

My superstar 3900 transmits on one channel and receives on one ch

Ok! well i deffinitally know what the problem is. You need to play with the clarifier, i think all the way to the left is a "course and fine tune" knob. This is generally for use when talking on SSB. but may affect AM if its way off.

The clarifier lets you slide on the freq. some radios will go a full channel some will only go a little or above the center of the channel. You need to play with the clarifier, you probably need to turn the course a lot, untill the audio is almost clear on the channel you want to talk on, than use the fine to tune it in so it sounds like they are sitting right next to you.

what you should do is buy a Frequency counter, you got a nice radio, so the freq. counter wouldent hurt. lets say you want to be on channel 19. you would turn the clarifiers untill i read 27.1850 That would put you right on the money
