Question about RCA RCD123 Cassette/CD Boombox
So I was listening to the radio the other day no problem, but then suddenly all of the higher frequencies including the station I was listening to only submit a high-pitched annoying squeal rather than whatever is supposed to be on the station. Any solutions or ideas as to what could have happened or is it time I resign myself to having to get a new radio?

I have the same problem. Mine seems to deal with the brightness of the screen. I turned down the brightness and it got better. It still makes the noise and I am going to take it in to see if it can be fixed. I just don't want to do with out my TV - Isn't that horrible.

Possible solution for some of the problems listed: Turn the clock upside down so that the label is readable in the upper left area. On the right side you will find a compartment which may have two "AA" batteries installed. These back up the setting when the clock is unplugged.
To reset the clock, you will have to BOTH remove the batteries AND unplug the AC power cord. Also, make sure the batteries are not dead.
Finally, although I cannot confirm this, there is an opening directly under the label (still looking at the bottom of the clock) which appears to be a "Reset" switch. A pointed object such as a ballpoint pen or toothpick will be needed to press this recessed button. Hope this helps. Mine is working just fine.

The power supply is starting to fail. There are a number of capacitors in the power supply that need to be replaced. A local repair shop should be able to fix this easily. Figure on $10 max for parts.

Using the tuner
Listening to the radio
The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and
AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and
manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the
frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a
station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can
memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving
station presets below for more on how to do this.
1 Press the FM/AM button to select the tuner.
2 Use the FM/AM button to change the band (FM or
AM), if necessary.
Each press switches the band between FM and AM.
3 Tune to a station.
There are three ways to do this:
To search for stations in the currently selected band,
press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for about a second. The
receiver will start searching for the next station,
stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for
To change the frequency one step at a time, press
High speed tuning
Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.
Release the button at the frequency you want.
Improving FM stereo sound
If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when
tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press
the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono
reception mode. This should improve the sound quality
and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.
Using Neural THX
This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to

Neural THX listening.
