Question about Sony ICF-M410V AM/FM/Weather/TV Radio
Recently my M410V seems to have gotten confused. The AM band tuning is off by a few khz and I don't how to fix it. Here's an example. I'm using it to listen to AM 850, but it suddenly can only tune to AM 846 or AM 855. It had previously tuned to AM 850 directly. The channel is VERY strong so I'm not sure what's going on. I've swapped batteries. Any thoughts? Any way to reset this or fine tune it? Thanks. Rich

Yes,removing the battery and going back to reset can help, also check for moisture, when the battery is removed try to apply some heat with a blower into the receiver housing to clear moisture, then try the set again.

Tips for a great answer:
See the swection on "Listening to the radio" on page 24 of the manual...
You can switch the AM band tuning steps between 9 kHz and 10 kHz.
The initial setting is 9 kHz. Please set the AM tuning step frequency to match the AM band tuning step frequency in your area.
USA and Canadian models 10 kHz
Other models 9 kHz
Press MEMORY while holding down TUNER.
Note: All the preset stations are erased when you switch the AM band tuning steps.

I fixed this problem by removing the batteries until the clock display turned off...clearing the time and channel presets. After replacing the batteries, the problem was resolved. Of course I had to reset the time and the presets, but it's fixed!
I allowed the batteries to completely run down and the computer reset the tuner to 10 khz spacing. I cannot remember how to get back to 9khz am spacing. Can you help? I have tried pressing various combinations of buttons, but so far no luck. [email protected]
Hi. I have an Eton E5. It has started to add ca. 6 kHz to to true frequency tuned in the medium wave band. Eg station on 1026khz appears on 1032khz. Rebooting does not fix it! Any advice would be appreciated. Paul.
