Fm reception going in and out also strange noises

I mistakenly hooked up the am loop antenna to the fm side. The FM radio will play briefly but after a few minutes it will start emitting strange noises out of the speakers. I have tried several antennas but nothing worked. Have I fried something?

Hooking up the AM antenna loop should not have fried anything, as I know lots of peeps who have done that. The FM RF amp. sounds like it may be at fault. The only way to tell if its bad is by hooking up an RF generator and I would be surprosed if you had one of those laying around. Disconnect the unit and take it to a repair shop.. If its an older model Time to get a new one. Good Luck

I have a old pioneer stereo double cassette deck reciever model # RX-Z15, i dont understand the bal/unbal fm antenna hook ups cant get reception , need to know where to hook up the antenna or what kin

Buy a 300ohm FM Y antenna wire screw the spade ends into the balance hookup and fasten the Y section on your wall, "higher the better" this will improve reception. The antenna can be purchased at Radio Shack or Tv repair shop.

I can't get the AM radio to find a signal. All other components work fine.

Hello
If you get FM radio stations, and only AM reception is immpossible, check whether AM loop antenna has connected to the respective poles at the back side. If it is connected, and still you do not get the Amplitude Modulation [AM] signals, check the input settings of the device is correct to recive AM. There will be a slelection option, for AM & FM. OK.

Sanyo dcx686 am/fm amp receiver no fm reception

you should be able to hook up any am/fm antenna, like the new ones that come in a square and hook it up to the two left-most spots for a radio antenna, thats how i have mine. as for the manual, you can order them off of a site(if you can find a reputable one) if you search SanyoDCX686 on google. hope thats somewhat helpful =]

Can't seem to tune many stations at all. Also once a station is tunned it "slips".

The antenna works with the power cord. Try extending the length of its power cord with an extension cord.
Position of the radio in the room, the furniture in the room and your position in relation to the radio all affect its reception.
If there is a place to connect an external antenna, this will be helpful. Check with Radio shack and best buy for a FM loop antenna. Usually the wire is flat.
An inexpensive antenna for FM only is also a cheap alternative

Am fm reception bad

FM reception is weak



What to do


• Extend the power cord as much as possible. The FM antenna is in the power cord.


• Move the power cord to adjust the FM antenna

• If you still have problems with FM reception, you may need an external antenna.


* Call Bose®Customer Service to request one.


The external antenna on your radio is a coax (round) design It needs an adaptor and an antenna which are cheap.


Easy to make, radio shack "F" connector 90 degrees or straight, to 300 ohm wire connections. Attatch a 300 ohm flat ribbon antenna cable to those two screws and plug into radio and see how your reception is. You will need to position the antenna wires to get best reception. I have hid them in back of paintings and so on.


Cheapest solution next to putting an extension cord on radio power cord.

Am/fm radio stations not clear... I have the AM antenna attached... but there is no attachment for FM

First of all check for any nearby source of interference.....Move your unit away from all computers, fluorescent lights, neon lights, microwaves, cell phones, and cell phonemag-glass_10x10.gif chargers. These devises tend to produce noise in the medium frequency band, where AM radio is broadcast.
If the unit plugs into the wall with a nonpolarized plug (where both prongs are the same size), try reversing the plug inmag-glass_10x10.gif the outlet. Moving the plug to another outlet might help, too.
check for fault in the antenna lead, (common) or bad earth on the antenna to body
If you don't have an antenna connected to your FM receiver,With a receiver or tuner, connect a wire-loop or T-shaped dipole FM antenna to the back of your unit. Move the antenna until you get the cleanest signal. Use a signal-strength meter or display to gauge signal strength if your unit has one.
  • Step 2 If you're still not getting a good signal, try an indoor amplified antenna, which you'll find at an electronics store. Don't buy one unless you get a guarantee that you can return it for full credit if it doesn't solve your reception problems.
  • Step 3 If your signal is weak because you live a long way from the transmitter, install an outside antenna and mount it as high as is practical. If you're primarily interested in getting signals from one station or from a group of stations in one direction, get a directional antenna and point it toward the transmitters.
  • Step 4 If you're using a portable FM radio where the only antenna is the power cord, stretch the cord as straight as possible and experiment with positioning again.
  • Step 5 Temporarily switch to monaural mode to improve a weak signal on an FM receiver.

    FM reception for Sony ICF-CD513?

    The electrical cord acts as an antennae for this radio. Uncoiling the cord will give the best reception for FM. Rotating the radio (and built in ferrite bar antennae) will give the best reception for AM listening.

    Better fm reception

    Is it just a single wire?

    If so, purchase a cheap FM antena. It looks like a "T" when spread out (4' to 5'). That should help.

    You can purchase an "amplified" antenna, but if your area reception is really bad (such as in a valley) the antenna would just amplify the noise as well. Look for web based radio in this case or if you have cable there are stations on it.

    I bought a second hand blackweb home theater system bwa18s8003 that has only the receiver and subwoofer how can I use this without the speakers I bought a second hand blackweb home theater system bwa18s8003. I am not familiar with speakers and these home theater systems. I thought a subwoofer was a speaker but after getting this home and doing research I see now that there should have been five little speakers making this like a surround sound I suppose. My friend thought it was a home stereo and for $10 I thought I found a heck of a deal. After reading I see that it's not recommended to switch up brands with this kind of systems. I hope I still have a deal. I'm wondering what kind of speakers (this is BT) I need and if second hand speakers possibly bought at thrift store, that aren't Bluetooth or blackweb brand may work. If not does anyone know a cheap place to get the right speakers, if they do indeed have to be replacements only to this system. My hopes was I have a little Bluetooth setup to play music off my phone and a stereo. I am asking for options as to what I can do with this system, being just the receiver and subwoofer without having to spend much more if any more money. For example, can I just plug it to my TV, etc. How can I even check to see if the two parts work before I put time and more cash into it since a subwoofer isn't a speaker how do I know if I can't the sound? I just guidance all around, wondering if I got a deal or do I need to kiss that money bye, and recycle or toss it. Thank you in advance for any directions and/or ideas.
