Question about Philips FWC155 CD Shelf System
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

Tips for a great answer:
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.
