I have the same problem, and no real solution, although I do find by hitting one of the keys several times in rapid succession, then pressing the standby button, the radio does tend to come on.
Really irritating, though, and I'd love to know how to fix it for good. Good luck - and do let me know if you find a solution.
RF-B65 has a known issue with the power connector on side. It gets resistive from not being used. If you apply 6 vdc and it works, its most likely the batteries or the power connector. If both produce a "E" its PLL doesnt lock. Power plug most likely issue. Another issue is the tuning knob. It skips or jumps irratically. The up/down frequency changes are by a cube 1/2 inch square contactor. Its not optical. Just simple mechanical contactor. Remove the small cube from chassis and spray liquid gold. It will clean wire contactor and lubricate internals. You cannot buy the cube. Cleaning it always works for me. RF-B65 radio is a sure winner. Small, reliable and very sensitive. Has SSB also. eter
I solved the problem, but I did not "fix" the problem. Rather than rig an antenna to the old Panasonic RF-544 radio, I put it upstairs where it has good reception. I put the new Sony ICF-38 downstairs where it brings in the stations I listen to. The advertsizing claim for the Sony ICF-38 is that it has "Good Sound and High Sensitivity." I believe it does have "high sensitivity" because even in the basement it brings in my desired stations. (I am still curious to know if I could have rigged an antenna to the old Panasonic RF-544.) RL
